Yeah but again, many people point to the 360 launch last year as a much larger success than the PS3 launch this year.  If the PS3 launched and sold more, I'd say those folks are wrong.

I think alot of people point to the launch of the Titanic as a much larger success than the PS3 launch this year.

The PS3 has failed to generate any type of positive buzz.  Just about all of the news about the PS3 (backwards compatability, scaling, November shipping numbers, launch night uglyness, controllers bugging out, PS3's being infected with the ebola virus, etc), has turned the PS3 into a joke on gaming boards, and an overpriced movie player to alot of consumers.

I have seen alot more PS3's available for sale than Wiis. Either Sony is shipping PS3s in bunches, or people aren't flocking to stores to buy them.  I guess we'll find out in January when the numbers come out.

Well technically, if you compare it to the price of a standalone Blueray player it's actually an underpriced movie player.

Well I've already bricked my PSP once trying to downgrade so I'm not going to try it again I don't think.  I have a couple of PS1 games kicking around (FFT I'm looking at you), that I would LOVE to play on my PSP but it looks like I'm out of luck.

You're right.  It could be especially damaging if your boss ever found out.  Or God forbid, your significant other.

It's actually a pretty good game except for the fact that it WILL crash on you fairly regularly.  Nothing sucks harder than leading a team 1-0 in manager mode with only a few minutes to go and the PSP suddenly shuts down.  God damn EA.

Read the press release, One track, 10 initial cars to unlock and then some tuned cars to unlock. Not much more than a demo. It's what they had working for GTHD and instead of going forward with that they are releasing this as a freebie teaser for GT5.

Sorry I must be completely blind but where does it say one track only?  After rereading about 5 times I was finally able to see where it says "features an all new course." lol
That doesn't necessarily mean though that that is the only course.  Usually when most releases say something new is included you usually take for granted that all the other stuff is istill there! lol

Unfortunately I just have never been able to get into GT despite how amazing it might be-it's just too realistic I guess.

I posted a thread about a week ago but it was a question not an answer! thanks! I'm probably going to grab RR2, Moto GP, Bounty Hounds and Sudoku.  I wish every company would start releasing demos for direct download.

Picked up FIFA 07.  So far I'm quite pleased.  It seems to have the critical combination of realism and fun and also has a good management sim.
Anybody know a good place to go where I can ask questions (especially about the management sim part)?   The Gamefaq forums aren't too busy.
5091  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Favorite Endings on: December 20, 2006, 05:24:09 PM
Nobody mentioned Final Fantasy Tactics yet?  It certainly gets my vote for most shocking ending.

5094  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Hockey/soccer on: December 19, 2006, 04:00:38 AM
That said I also recommend Sony's game.  It was fun although there were a few things I don't like.  Only 2 minute halves?  That's a bit too short for me.  Passes are always dead on.  No league or licensed teams.
5095  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP Hockey/soccer on: December 19, 2006, 03:59:04 AM
Well I'm going to go with FIFA 07 I think.  It looks like the best combination of gameplay and depth (from a management/licensing point of view).  Unfortunately it's probably going to cost be about 6800 yen (plus 900 yen to get there and back!)  My roommate is going home for Christmas but he wont be back until January and I want something to play for the holidays.  Perhaps I'll get him to pick up NHL 07 for me.  It seems to be the only hockey game worth getting at the moment.
5096  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 controls and FPS on: December 18, 2006, 01:00:53 PM
Yes I'm referring to the Playstation only.  The PS2 had a much vaunted mouse and keyboard support-except for the fact that no one supported it.  Is that going to happen again this time around?  Someone please tell me that Resistance is mouse/kb compatible!

5098  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 controls and FPS on: December 18, 2006, 01:53:35 AM
So can you NOT use a mouse and keyboard for Resistance?  I made a similar thread just yesterday.  I thought most games would be able to be played with mouse and keyboard this time around.  Hopefully the same thing doesn't happen as last generation.
5099  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Motorstorm Impressions on: December 18, 2006, 01:49:15 AM
Let's get back to the game shall we?  I'm looking forward to this game since it has been appraised by the critics and so far all that they have been able to agree on is that mud doesn't look very good.

Quote from: KePoW on December 17, 2006, 01:34:41 AM

just curious Canuck, is Resistance the first FPS you've tried on a console gamepad or something?  cause that's what it sounds like

personally mouse+KB will always reign supreme for me, but everyone should have at least tried a few FPSes on consoles by now

Nope.  Also played Goldeneye (a little bit) and some Medal of Honor for the original PS.  I can't understand how anybody can play with a gamepad but I don't doubt that some of you have forced yourselves to get used to it.  It would be interesting if there was an icon on the score to show which users were using keyboards and which were using gamepads.  I'd like to see who's owning who.
5101  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resistance with M/KB? on: December 17, 2006, 01:16:06 AM
Sacrilege!!!  How could anybody say that! I couldn't even move around using that stupid gamepad.  Nevermind get the crosshairs actually lined up with any of the enemies.
5102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Resistance with M/KB? on: December 16, 2006, 11:44:18 PM
Well I tried playing the demo of Resistance the other day and absolutely hated it.  I just can't understand how anyone could willingly play any kind of FPS game using a gamepad.  That said, has anyone tried plugging a mouse and keyboard into the PS3 and playing it that way?  Does it essentially play just like a computer game (ie being able to up the sensitivity and everything?)

Is it just me or do the pics look a little like plastic the mud just does'nt look real.

I didn't play the track with all the mud but I'm guessing that it's not very noticeable when you're actually playing the game and moving at 120km/h
5104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Motorstorm Impressions on: December 16, 2006, 11:30:49 PM
Wow looks better than when I played it! LOL  So you can take screenshots with your PS3 and post them on the internet?  That would be friggen amazing if every game could do that.

Quote from: DamageInc on December 15, 2006, 02:30:52 PM

Not sure if this would be an Off-Topic item but it is related to consoles. I have been looking at houses in my area to buy, and of the 25 houses I looked at yesterday (many were vacant) 3 of the houses had an Xbox and an Xbox 360, one house had just an Xbox and one had a PS2.

So now, Xbox can use Trident's marketing campaign. "4 out of 5 Bachelor's choose Xbox" (It also shows that they are single as well  :icon_eek:)

PS I forsee this turning out to be a flame war about Xbox versus other consoles and this is not intended. It is merely a satirical look at one man's observation.

Just goes to show that all the smart guys have been taken!  icon_biggrin
5106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP Hockey/soccer on: December 15, 2006, 03:36:35 AM
What's the best of these sports for the PSP?  I noticed that NHL 07 was getting some decent reviews and there doesn't seem to be much else out there for hockey other than the Gretzky series. Anybody played it? Is it fun?  And what about soccer?  I'm thinking about maybe getting a soccer game.  I want it to be fun and pretty realistic at the same time.  I downloaded the demo of World Tour Soccer 06 and I've been having a lot of fun with that one.  I'm wondering if I should pick it up or go with the FIFA/PES iteration. I almost bought WE 10 for the PSP yesterday for only 4600 yen but the japanese language ended up scaring me away.  What do you recommend?
5107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Regarding the Japanese Blue Dragon Sales Numbers on: December 15, 2006, 12:26:57 AM
What are the reviews like coming out of Japan?  80,000 copies in one week can only be called respectable considering that there are likely only a few more Xbox 360's in circulation.  Like someone else mentioned I bet that most of the copies that will be sold were sold during the first week. I'll be interested in seeing the end of month numbers.
5108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hetz, is Motorstorm (JPN) playable in the US? on: December 15, 2006, 12:19:20 AM
Well I just played the game yesterday.  I won't comment on the graphics because that is not my area of expertise.  I don't have an HDTV and I couldn't tell you anything about resolution or common complaints about HDTV games.  I do know that that game was fun as hell though!!  And yes lots of car parts go flying.  I also played Resistance and it was about as much fun as any other FPS I've played on a console (ie not fun).  How anybody can play an FPS without a mouse and keyboard is beyond me.

The PSP's going to be THE handheld to own for tactics fans with this, Disgaea: Portable (...I think it's still coming out...) & Jeanne D'Arc in its line-up. 

Well I saw Disgaea:Portable in the store today (albeit in Japan and for about 6000 yen) so I assume that it's coming!

I played it.  I don't know what I thought about the game but I loved the music! I guess I must be living in Japan for too long.  Strangely enough I'm having a tough as hell time downloading anything from the American Playstation site.  After clicking on "Games and Demos" or whatever it takes me to a screen with a blue background and a PS symbol in the upper right corner with the current time but nothing else!  Am I missing some important drivers or something?  I have Javascript turned on and I have Flash turned on but I'm not seeing anything.
5113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP demos? on: December 13, 2006, 10:45:23 AM
Well I just got my now un-bricked PSP back from Sony (actually got it back a while ago but it was at the girlfriends). It's updated to 3.01 firmware.  I think I'm going to update it every time there's a new firmware release to keep me from being tempted to downgrade smile  Do the North American PSP's have the Portable TV option?  Mine does but it takes me to a Japanese site.  Great if I want to download Japanese idol videos for 105 yen a pop but I'd like to try some english stuff.

Also, where are all the PSP demos?  For some reason I had the idea that there were going to be tons of them but I'm having difficulty finding more than a couple.  I tried WTS Soccer 06 and found that to be a TON of fun.  I don't know if I'll get the full game but for the price it was certainly worth the download!!

So can anybody hook me up with some demos other than Lemmings, WTS 06, Moto GT, Ridge Racer or Loco Roco?

As an aside, I saw a demo of Jeane D'arc at BicCamera today.  I could have bought it for $35 but didn't think there would be any point since my Japanese knowledge hovers slightly above zero and my knowledge of kanji is even worse.  It looks friggen beautiful on the PSP though.  And if I didn't know better I could have sworn that I saw a Disgaea:Portable game for the PSP.  I had no idea that such a thing existed

5115  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP System Software Question on: December 11, 2006, 01:55:08 PM
I heard that updating screws up the PSP's ability to play full screen movies off of the memory card.  Well to say "screw up" would suggest that it was accidental.  I think Sony purposely borked it.

I suspect that we'll see this number rise before the end of the year.  Last second "OMG, I can't find a PS3 or Wii!" purchases.

Hello Xbox bias anyone?  The PS2 is still oustandingly successful and that is simply chalked up to 'replacement for dead PS2's' ?  Judging by most of the complaints on these forums lately I'd have to say that it's the Xbox 360 that has inflated statistics due to breakdowns!  Perhaps it says a lot that people would rather replace their PS2 than buy an Xbox.

As for the PSP, I dunno it's doin ok.  Obviously Nintendo is kicking it's ass but it's not too far behind the PS2 and Xbox 360 in sales.

Cut the crap with this "Xbox bias" BS.  Hello PS2 bias?  Remember this?

It seems you have an issue when someone prefers the Xbox to the PS2.  You're more guilty of bias than those you are calling out.


LOL Graham has that been burning up inside of you for the past four months?  I'm glad you were finally able to get it out of your system.
