PS3

Post by joegoo420 » Sun Mar 04, 2007 11:32 pm

Was wondering if any of you have a PS3 yet, and if you do is it online and what games do you have.
I just picked one up yesterday and I bought Fight Night 3, Resistance and NHL 2K7. Haven't gone online with it yet but will very soon. Gotta buy another 50 ft Ethernet cable.

I picked up a 60" Sony Wega SXRD as well and man is it ever something else to play it at 1080P with 7.1 surround.

When the zombie thing in resistance jumped on me and started eating me I actually jumped out of my chair and screamed like a little girl. Dropped the controller and died a horrible death.

My computer will never compare, this thing is something out of this world.

lmfao!

That soooo reminds me of the first time I played resident evil on the ps1 and the wall-climby-monster-thingy smashed through the window in the hallway and grabbed me...paul drops controller, shuts game off...hides in corner

PS3: looks good, but my 7800GTX will do 1080p, albeit I might need to upgrade to get a decent framerate at >1000 lines. Think I'll sink my bucks into an 8800, I never been much of a console guy anyway...

PC Gamer ran an article a few months back showing what kind of computer you could build for the price of a PS3. And honestly it was a pretty good entry level rig.

PC FTW!

You could not build a PC that would rival the ps3 for only ~$600. The bluray player alone is worth that price right now. (weather bluray is actually worth it is another question)

You'd need a heck of a lot more money to build a PC that could play ps3 games, take R6 Vegas for example, a $600 PC wouldn't even be able to install the game lol.

Hey, if ya got the money, why not!

Sony already loses $200-$300 per PS3 sold. I doubt we will see a price drop any time soon. Sony screwed themselves with the Blu-ray player, putting a new and expensive, unproven technology into a game console...not the best idea.

I don't have one but I have been playing my friends often now when I get a chance. Mostly CoD3, soon to be Motostorm.

Should I ever get a router, I would actually consider buying one.

If you want a system for great graphics and online Xbox 360 is the best. The Wii is best for pick up and play gamers, and PS3 is just garbage in my opinion. HD DVD is going to win the new media war.

To each their own. My brother's a big console gamer. I can see the draw.
