Also I get a kick out of the comments he puts at the end to the requests for reviews.

FWIW I've only played the campaign in non-splitscreen co-op mode but I haven't witnessed any slow down either. 

This makes no sense (of course I believe you, I'm not referring to your experience). We have a wide variety of boxes here-manufacture date, HDMI, Pro, Elite, Arcade, etc. And it appears that its maybe 50/50 experiencing slowdown vs. not. How does this make any sense?

Makes sense to me just because of the shoddy quality control.  The 360's out there have vastly different levels of heat and load tolerance.  Many systems are probably in various stages of over heating and RROD.  Different ambient temps may be a factor.  Either way, I'm not that surprised.  Long gone are the days where every console of the same type is indeed the same.

I highly doubt all of that especially considering I have one of the newer 360 models so if anything I should be the one it runs smoothly for. If your talking about playing the game while the system is hot, that also couldn't apply either because when I was having the issues I had just recently booted the system. It's definitely a software issue, not hardware.

Newer doesn't necessarily mean better especially when it comes to Microsoft Tongue
I have a launch box that I leave on for days (through the night) and its working fine.  Although I wonder if the cooler temperatures in my basement have something to do with it.

I'm sure it does.  I've always wondered if most of the xbox problems are from people putting their consoles in enclosed spaces with no air flow at all, or similar situations.

I'm still a little bothered by the fact that the words "erected" and "tentpole" were used by DragonFyre in his first two posts.

As to the movies, I'm more interested in Candy Land. I hope it's an NC-17 title. Tongue

I never really got into GI Joe, so I have no preconceived notions. It could waver from the story completely and I wouldn't notice it. As to Bay's Transformers, I'm not willing to dive back into that mire. The fact that they made bank does not a good movie make.

OMG!  I love the TF movie, it rocked!!

and yeah i think it is chris redfield(is he the one who has the sister..or is that the valentines....its getting a bit character heavy now this series...who was the one who betrayed tham all?.....argghhh)

Wesker was the betrayer.  Yeah it's Chris Redfield as the character in this game.  He was one of the people you could play in the OG RE.

11049  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Netflix was down....you get a credit for it! on: March 26, 2008, 04:21:07 PM
For those who didn't know, Netflix was down on Monday.  Looks like they're applying a 5% credit to your next bill for it:

from sfgate.com:

Quote
Online DVD rental leader Netflix Inc. said Wednesday it will provide a 5 percent credit on the monthly bills of customers affected by its Monday outage.

Netflix spokesman Steve Swasey did not disclose the number of customers affected, or the total amount that will be refunded, saying the credit will not have a material impact on the company's financial operations.

"The key thing here is: This was completely proactive on Netflix's part. There's no requirement for Netflix to do this, no obligation. There was no request for it. We thought it was the right thing to do," Swasey said.

Many of Netflix's 7.5 million members return, rather than receive, DVDs on Mondays after watching them over the weekend, Swasey said. The outage resulted in a one-day delay for people expecting to receive DVDs on Tuesday.

Swasey confirmed that one section of the site, its ratings system, remained down until Tuesday morning, as the company had decided to prioritize getting the ordering and shipping functions back online.

Monday's outage knocked out its Web site for about 11 hours. It marked the second-longest disruption since Netflix launched its service nine years ago. Netflix's Web site was down for more than 18 hours last July when the Los Gatos-based company lowered its prices.

Netflix shares were down 1 cent, to $37.11, in midday trading Wednesday.

it still should have come with regular cables that could be used for the PS2.

Are the cables that came with the PS3 component, or do HD cables even matter with the PS2?

11059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any chance of software BC for the PS3 moving forward? on: March 26, 2008, 02:40:26 PM
Hey all, I was short-sighted and didn't go with the 80GB PS3 with the BC for PS2 games.  I never had a PS2, so I never played any of the games for the system.  There are 3 games that I am interested in playing though, I just don't want to have to buy a system, memory card, and cables for it to play these games (GoW, GoW2, and SotC). 

Does anyone think that Sony will release some kind of DLC BC for 40GB users, or is it really a dead item moving forward?  Maybe Sony will put the PS3 GoW games on the eventual GoW 3 disc, or sell them in the PSN store?

So, are they very carefully placing the sword so it reflects his shoulder, or is that etched into the blade?

The only way that blade could be reflecting both the light and his shoulder would be if the light source was at his shoulder.  I'm guessing it's etched/painted on the blade. 

Yeah it seems etched to me as well.

163,708 on "More Than a Feeling", only missed a few notes in the solo (my third try at the song tonight; the first try was really lousy, because my mind started to play the old note chart from GH1! icon_lol). I didn't get the "communicating with Rock Band servers" message when it ended the song and saved before dropping to the playlist. If that score didn't get uploaded I am going to be mad. icon_evil

That sucks man...I'm noticing that even if I have a higher score than the one I get, if the communicating with server message comes up, that's what goes online.

Did they put a price on this yet?  Depending on the soundtrack, I might actually bite on this one.

i know that here in the UK,its 69.99...whether that helps..?

Isn't that like $27,000 USD?

No, don't be silly.  Only $26,842.13 USD.

An upscaled DVD is still not really 1080p source, so it should not look as good as a Blu-Ray disc will.

I have my PS3 set to output to 1080p in settings, but if a game does not support that (say 720p) max, the PS3 just outputs to whatever the highest level that the game displays in.  You should not have to do any manual switching of modes when you play games.
