I finally decided to try this and its fascinating-big problem though-it can't see about 90% of my music, they are .m4a files, most of them legally purchased from iTunes-and the game can't see them, even though it sees the folder. I heard this might be a demo issue, but I am a little wary of spending 10$ if its going to have an issue with my music for some reason. Anybody know about this?

the game should see .m4a files no problem, it's .m4p ones that it can't play.  so far it's been able to see all my mp3 and mp4a's no problem.  The game did give my my first BSoD in god knows how long though, which didn't make me happy.

That's great for you that you had games to play, and people have games to play on the PS3 right now too, just different preferences.  But your original comment was about the library size, so that's been addressed.

yes, for library size I'm fairly certain the 360's section was much bigger at this equivalent point in it's life.  According to Moby Games for the first full year of each console (plus their first couple of months tossed in- includes downloadable games which I'm betting is about the same amount for either system):

360 in 2005:  27 games
360 in 2006:  121 games (you can take off about 10 as dupes)

PS3 in 2006:  18 games
PS3 in 2007:  97 games (you can take off about 6 as dupes)

Where'd you hear that?

NM, there's still a chance he might be in there.  I misread this quote from one of the Gamespot articles:

Quote
All the characters announced up until now were fully playable at AOU, which includes the eight world warriors from the original Street Fighter II and the new female challenger, Crimson Viper. A tenth character, named Abel, was also unveiled and playable.

Vega wasn't one of the original 8 playable characters, but another article says there may still be surprises in the game.

Am I missing something? Those look like screenshots from an Atari 2600...?

... really?

Admittedly, I have no context of where those shots are taken within PS3, but yeah, the icons look like old space invaders and are rudimentary at best?

I'm with ATB on this, those screens look like shit.

I wouldn't say Atari 2600.  Apple IIe maybe with everything being green...

They should let devs do their own style of achievements.  Imagine a terrorist killing game where whenever you unlocked an achievement a little GWB icon popped up saying 'Mission Accomplished!' with the achievement description.

Yeah, it was also bigger than the 360 section back when the 360 was a year after release.

Also, the gamecube didn't have downloadable games.

yeah, but the difference is the 360 had a bunch of games I wanted to play back then.  I can still count he number of PS3 games I'm interested in on 2 fingers.  At least the dust magnet they put in the PS3 works really well- I swear I have to dust it off at least twice a week- it's like it's growing from the inside!  icon_lol

I'll say this. $400 to play games = no sale, IMHO. So it plays blu-ray movies. Its still marketed as a game machine.

But $350 to play games = sale?

I can't understand this line of thinking. Is $50 such a huge gap?  That's less than the price of a game.  That's less (or the same) as a years worth of Live.

Why yes, $350 to play games = sale. That price made me feel better about spending my hard-earned cash to buy a next-gen console



That's right.  I'm always forgetting that the PS3 has no games.  Roll Eyes
it is kinda sad when you think that the used Gamecube section at my local GS is bigger than the new and used PS3 section combined  disgust

Wow no radar, that's a big change.  Not sure how I feel about it.  Peripheral vision/situational awareness is so hard to do in a FPS without some sort of aid like a radar.

R6 was the first game that I liked the radar, it wasn't omnipotent, it only showed where they were if you had LOS or a teammate was.  Dont' like the removal.

Wish I knew if it had a party/lobby system frown

I wonder if they'll put the old chat system in, where you could talk with the enemy if you were close enough.  That part was kinda fun.
