It just doesn't feel right.

Download the demo & see what you think.


Oh, demos! I forgot about that stuff. I have to get used to having online capabilities. :D

seriously, demos make this current gen worth the price. Lost Planet 2 and Brutal Legend should be the top of your list.

Yeah, I used to pay £5.99 of the official playstation magazine just to play the demos that were on the cover disk. I had a subscription when the original playstation was still going strong. It worked out a bit cheaper, but you still ended up with all these demo discs that you never play once the real game comes out.

The only downside this gen is the waiting time. Demos are anything from 600mb to 2.5gig on the 360. I'm guessing they will be about the same size (if not bigger) on the ps3.

@Lecko You should probably check out the Arkham Asylum demo & (if one exists) Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2.

I remember wanting to register "Fievel" on the PSN when it first opened. The servers were absolutely clogged and I couldn't get on.
Anticipating my buying a PS3 during the holiday season, I just registered Fievel75.

Here's hoping someone has some free Blu-Ray movies, free games, or an additional controller this Black Friday.

And hey, I get a bluray player out of it... Score!

PS3, Little Big Planet, and Ratchet & Clank for $299

So glad I waited. I just hope I can get my ass up early enough to get it. 5am is awfully early.

I just bought a PS3 through Best Buy's website.
They have their Black Friday Doorbusters on sale online.
It comes with Little Big Planet (Game of the Year Edition) and the newest Ratchet & Clank game.

Now I get to sleep in tomorrow and not worry about trying to get one in the store.
No fighting the crowds.
No waiting in line.
No chance of waiting for several hours just to find that they're sold out.

Life is good.

Only if it causes chaffing.

I am envious of your bundle (too erotic?). I wish I had Little Big Planet :P

I did just buy Dead Space for real cheap, though. I heard that game was fairly scary, which I enjoy while gaming.

I started playing Dead Space at the weekend, it's pretty good. It doesn't have the "shit your pants" moments that Resident Evil 2 had, or the "oh fuck, shoot the the bin" moments F.E.A.R had, but you'll have a few jumps if you're playing with the lights off. I'm only halfway through act 3 right now though, so it could get worse.

For me, it was Silent Hill 2. That game just bugnuts, to borrow a term from H@rry. Scared the crap out of me. I have been looking for a game to equal that experience ever since. Resident Evil 5 was such a fucking disappointment. Too many bullets.

I just bought one too, but it hasn't arrived yet. Although I don't really plan on using it much for gaming. I mainly got it as a Blu-ray player.

Although if you'd like to mention the killer apps for the PS3, you know... the shit that you just can't miss, I'd be interested.

I play on Xbox Live.

And I'd just like to add that hooking up a PS3 and getting all the HD stuff to coexist peacefully with my surround sound receiver, TV, Xbox360, and DVR is A MOTHER FUCKING BITCHASS PAIN IN THE ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God, I almost just want to destroy the damn thing just to relieve some tension. But I'll weather the storm of inexpressible rage.

Movies, music, and pictures that are all stored on my PC go (via wi-fi) through the PS3 to my TV..... wow.

Little Big Planet is mega cheap yo, they dropped it to $39 I belive and tossed in $30 in free DLC. Today WATER and Priates of the Caribean come out for LBP so I'm pretty excited.

I'm not getting much game in on the tournament at all. I started today with Valor but it just felt wrong. So I went back to Raven.
I might get an hour or two during the day tomorrow but will likely be on for the closing hours after I get back from class.

Are you going to get the game KP?
I like the basic idea of the game, but I haven't encountered much team strategy happening on my end.
I'd hate to drop $60 if it's just going to continue like this.

honestly, it's why I want to start a clan for zoners and the occasional referral from one of us.

I have a mic, but because of the kid I don't use it much. Either he's being loud or I don't want to wake him up. But I think communication is key and playing with people you just know how to read.

My plan is to get it, if you do too, we'll definately start a clan.

I like valor or raven, I can't play SVER, it feels like I am playing the bad guys. SVER also seems far too opverpowered both in weapons, and in the set up of their defensive positions. Nearly unbeatable.

The worst is people who can heal you but keep walking... really? Or the idiots who start shooting at the begining of a match, killing their squad.

Between the Beta and the Tournament I lost my character - not sure if everyone else did. It sucked starting back out at zero but my sucky ass is finally back up to 14 with Raven.
I honestly don't know if I can buy this.... it's like crack and I don't have time to be an addict!!!!!

I really like the Darien & Copper Hills maps but I absolutely hate the Syr Darya map - way too cramped. I hope they add Acquisition, Suppression or Domination in the next few days.

I'm without a headset and that sucks. I'm seeing more cooperation now than I did a week ago and would really love to get in on that aspect. Also seeing more medics running around helping.

No other Zoners playing this? Just me and KP???

I pre-ordered at best buy for the valor bonus armor loadout, it is crack so I stick to night play when everyone is passed out. I'm sure I'll play randomly other times of day, hard to say.

I do hope if you buy the retail version to join me in Valor since I could use some backup I can count on.

Good news for all of you PS3 GTA fans. The Xbox exclusive additional episodes, are no longer exclusive. They are coming out on PS3 and PC.
I heartily recommend them, as I had a blast playing them on my 360.

Also, im currently messing about with Vidzone, the free music video streaming service on ps3 for the first time this evening. Its pretty good. Not as much of the stuff I would like to see, but a nice selection nonetheless, and a pretty decent user friendly interface. If you have a ps3, and havent tried it yet, give it a shot.

i looked into this, from what i hear, the "HD" stream is near-DVD quality. i'm a bit of a video snob, so i wouldn't bother with it until it's up to true HD quality. but if you've got it for free, you may as well use it.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DONT CONNECT YOUR PS3 TO THE INTERNET (for the foreseeable future)

Some network error is borking the system, and making games unplayable. This only affects the older "studly" models, slims are unnaffected. So hang tight until Sony get this shite fixed.

Thats a hell of a lot of customer service calls to deal with......
