    I just brought the 80 gig playstation 3 console and it rocks!!
    The Blue Ray movies look fantastic and my tv isn't even true high definition . I can browse the internet with the console too and the library of games is very good right now . 400 bucks for this console is a great deal .

    Well, it's good to find someone who learned something everyone knew. Sorry, I have a PS3 as well and I love it to death. You need to know anything about it, just ask me.

    Personally, I don't really care for most of the exclusives on the PS3 and I really hate the small, weightless controller. I love the graphics in the Gran Turismo games, but I played the demo for about fifteen minutes and I was completely bored the entire time.

    I guess the only option for me would be to get it as a Blu-Ray player, but those seem to be outrageously expensive right now. I'm not going to give $40 for a movie i'll only watch once or twice.

    If more exclusives come out for it that I like and the prices of Blu-Ray goes down quite a bit, i'll definitely consider getting one. Until then, i'll just wait.

    Don't get me wrong: I'm glad you guys enjoy your PS3s. It just isn't for me.

    The graphics and sound is killer on Blu-Ray movies, even when coming through the regular tv speakers.

    Love mine! The Blu-Ray player in it alone is worth the reason to buy it. But the games are great (LOVE Resistance and the Ratchet and Clanks) and the on-line options for them are wicked; I think some of the 13-20 year olds that I thrash in Resistance would be horrified to know a 51 year old guy is kicking their 'I know EVERYthing about PS3' asses!! Woo hoo

    If you pay $100 more, you will get 160 gig PS-3.

    I have one, and though it's not cheap,

    IT'S AWESOME.

    Some of the greatest games out there are only on the PS3 and the Blu Ray player is great along with a slew of other features.

    Don't get the 160GB PS3, it's cheaper to buy the 80GB one and buy an bigger HD for cheaper.

    In other news, HOME came out yesterday. It is less than impressive right now, but seems like it could become pretty good.

    I love my PS3 and the bluray is a wonderful addition. The only thing I'm not keen on is the updates for games which can sometimes take up to an hour.

    I am going to use a PC for games with a 1080P video card and a AMD Quad Core Processor with 7.1 sound.

    i'm not a big gamer, but i just bought a nintendo DS, along with castlevania: order of ecclesia, castlevania: dawn of sorrow, zelda: phantom hour glass, and new super mario bros.

    those three series are da kine! they're basically the only series that can hold my attention long enough. i have the castlevanias for gameboy advance playstation and playstation 2. i've only beaten lament of innocence, sypmhony of the night, and aria of sorrow. i need for get to work haha.

    i started with order of ecclesia. dunno why, just seemed kinda interesting. maybe because the trilingual manual offered nothing in terms of what the hell was goin on. it's basically just how for control shanoa, that's it. no story at all

    From what I've witnessed. Xbox360's tend to malfunction. I've known 4 people who've returned theirs for having red rings, and one whose video card was broken. I think I'll save some money and invest in the security and blue ray capability of the Playstation3.

    Now....I just need $400.

    Who wants to touch my dick for $400?

    Any takers?

    lol

    lol indeed. Why pay to touch yours when I can touch mine for free? :biggrin: Just come over to my house and we can play.

    Seriously I had my PS3 for 1 week before it crapped out. Right after downloading a system update, it refused to read any disc. CD, DVD, games,.. nothing. Sony took about a month to get me a new one. Researching the net I found out that it was a common problem and Sony was rountinely replacing the units. Other than that I like it as a Blu-ray player and a games console. I do wish there were other controllers for it. I don't like it for shooting and flying games. The ability to hook my Logitech joystick to it would be perfect.

    What other games besides Metal Gear Solid 4 is worth playing? I finally got a 360 and it hasn't messed up once. Can't stop playing Bioshock.
