and came back with a PS3. :D

Due to the failure of HD-DVD here in AU, I went out a grabbed a PS3. I didn't want to spend $1500AUD on a dedicated player. So I saw EB had a bundle. $1000 for a PS3 plus 2 games. Seemed ok to me. So I thought why not. Had a bunch of birthday cash from family. So on my morning trip to get milk for a house full of women who needed coffee (My gf has a heap of her friends up for uni holidays), I stopped at EB, grabbed the PS3, Resistence and I traded the 2nd game for another controller. My mate James served me so he threw in extended warranty, blu-ray remote and a little HDMI switch (not using it, but it might come in handy).

Got it home, had a few weird issues getting the optical out to work with my switch, but in the end it intergrated just fine into my setup. Played a little Resistence, great looking game BTW, little light on the gameplay, but I've only played an hour or so. Downloaded a few demos, Motorstorm is awesome, my gf loves Lemmings, GTHD looks amazingly good (well the intro atleast). I also watched Enter the Dragon on BD. It looked great. The DVD upscaling is nice, so I pulled out my old Sony 5 DVD changer and I'll stick with the PS3 for now.

I'm really surprised with the overall quality of the hardware and software. It's a little more complex than the 360, but that's no problem for me. I also love the fact it's silent.

Now I have a bunch of PS2 games to buy. God of War and Buzz are at the top of the list.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 360 and most of my gaming will be done on the 360. But I now understand what Sony aimed to do with the PS3. Too me it really seems like the PS3 is more of a Xbox2 than the 360 is. :wtf:

P.S. I never did get the milk...

Picked up The Darkness yesterday. Got the 360 version. I need the achievement points and it's a rather easy game. :D

As for Tekken. I've never played it more than a couple hours in my life. So your predicted whooping would be correct.

I'm torn on replacing my 360 or getting a ps3. i don't use the internet capabilities with these new consoles I just want to play games. My thing is stability,I don't trust the xbox 360 and I know the ps3 is library limited but I feel ripped off by MS because my 600.00 plus console died after 1 year. I'm leaning towards the ps3 side of things.Enjoy your ps3

If you want a free copy just PM me, I will give you access to my PSN Account and you can just download it to your PS3. You can play it under your own PSN Account (I got Warhawk from Badboy like that).

Oh I have buddies!!!

Will add everyone once I'm home from work. :D

Will also have to sort out a wired connection. My routers wireless is less than stable. :( Might just pull the Xbox's connection for the time being.

The answer is clear over this way. BD is outselling HD-DVD 9 to 1. Yup it's that bad. All the local stores who stocked HD-DVD have told me they aren't getting anymore in, Blu-Ray has made it's mark in Australia.

I'm not to upset, the few BD titles I've seen have looked great. Although I do checkout reviews to make sure. I know to stay clear of the BD versions of Fifth Element and Full Metal Jacket for example (Heard they look no better than the DVD versions).

Congrats. :cool:

If you get a chance, make sure you pick up Superstardust HD and resistance map packs (especially with the new international servers).

The PS3 with its firmware updates and finally some games coming out is finally showing its true form.

Only thing I REALLY hate about the PS3 is the horrible lack of FSAA. Most games are really jaggy. Why don't they do at least 2XAA??

Most games have atleast 2xAA from what I have noticed, some are 4xAA like Resistance.

Do they even sell Madden in Australia? Wait I think I heard someone ask for it the day I bought my PS3...

Only Gridiron I've seen is the Superbowl on SBS, even then it's just an excuse to get drunk and wonder at the strange games you guys play. :D

Also I've noticed a little jaggyness, but nothing that ruins the game. I only see it because I'm used to 16AA on my PC. :D

@nekrosoft... :rant: (pb) :wonder:

Is Madden 08 coming out soon? If it is, then I'd rather wait. I'm doing the same with Tiger Woods (08 comes out in August, so no need to buy 07 now)...If it's not coming out before next year, then I'll pony up for some 07, practice for a month,then DESTROY j00!!!!! :P

I think Madden comes out the end of August or something like that. So yea it's pretty soon.
