just wondering who has one
ive had mine since xmas and it kicks the ass of the 360
so much quieter, better GFX, better front end, and free online paly!

if you got one what games u got.
wot's your user name
any games to recomend
anything worth downloading from the PS store or other places
and hardware / accessories you would buy / recomend?

first of all i would get yourself a wireless keyboad and mouse for web browsing

well games ive got NFS UG its a good game not a and drive but good fun no the less and the map is huge!!
not played online with it yet

Resistance 2
havent had a chance to play this much but from what ive played so far, its good, online is where i think i will spend most of my time playing, a good firstperson shooter. a bit had to get used to after playing COD4/5 tho.

GT prologe
WOW, what a game, a bit short but still wow, roll on the final realase date! a must buy for the ps3

the GTI club (free download of the demo)
a great classic woth a download anyway.

and i had to buy one for the G/F
Wall-e dont even know what this is like not my type of thing.

my 360 runs at 1080p, few games i have seen running side by side, i dont think the graphics on the ps3 warrent the extra money.

Besides, out the box, i think the XBox is a far better gaming machine.

i couldn't get mine to run more than 720 on a 1080p plasma.
its not like it takes much to set up the ps3 tho choose your settings and off u go.
i do agree tho alot of extra cash for what it is, but imho think it beats the 360
i own a 360 aswell btw, dont get me wrong the 360 is great but....

Ps3 is Much Better than XBox. Its been let down because it took so long to release it, and to release a version that everyone wanted, for a "Reasonable" price (Still too expensive). In the meantime, everyone went for the Wii and the 360. Dunno Why, because the Wiis graphics are exactly the same as the Gamecubes, and it doesnt even have any decent games (all just cutesy family games)

Whenever the 360 and the ps3 are compared online, or tv etc... For some unknown reason, the companies ALWAYS pit the top version of the 360, with a standard PS3. If they compaed the full versions of both, no-one would have bought the 360.

I havent the money or the time to buy a current gen console, but if I did, I can guranantee it would be the Playstation. In my experience, any game on the 360 simply feels like an Arcade Game, especially racing games.



Heres something for you, you go to someones house and you see a 360/wii you think, lets play some games. You see a PS3... you think WOW.

Case Closed.

Come on guys, I have a life remember, because I dont have ANY games consoles whatsoever. Ive outgrown em, bored by them. End of the day, we get ripped off whatever we buy.

My younger bro has had a 360 for the past 4 years. Its broken 5 times !!!!!!! He doesnt do anything out of the ordinary, its just a shoddily made piece of crap.

Seen that vid before, it pisses me off not because theyve destryed a ps3, but because they have the money to just do that, and because they think theyre being martyrs. End of the day, theyre computer geeks, who probably havent got girlfriends raftl raftl raftl raftl raftl raftl raftl raftl raftl



I mean, look at that guys beard HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

tell your brother to stop smothering it, move it to somewhere with enough ventilation to keep it cool smack

Jeees! What is it with people today?

If its not torturing cats with flea crap its blocking their 360`s in cabinets without any ventilation no

suppose if you want superior graphics, the only way to go is on the PC. There is never going to be huge differences in ps3 and xbox due to limitations of the tv.

well i would say that it was thrown togeather so quickly that they didnt think of these little problems like ventilation of the gpu and an internal hdd, they just kept adding stuff and didnt think of re-designing the box. end of the day they are a software company and thought they could fix it with the next patch. well it doesnt work like that with hardware!
