Ok, Conflict: Denied *Framerate* is horrible.

It's laggy, and not really fun.

nrdstrm, yep, skating was fun.

Wich one did you buy btw Spoudazo ? I'm thinking of getting one,initially i wanted the 60/80 gb versions for the backwards compability but im beginning to think its not worth it.I know how crap most xbox games work/look on my 360 so that feature isnt needed perhaps and the cheaper 40gb model might do the trick.Whats your wiew on that ?

There's a whole bunch of good titles on the PS2 though. If you can afford it and it's availible, IMO BC is a must.

Do they work well on the ps3 though ? I just tried gotham racing 2 on my 360 and parts of the menu was missing/didnt work and the game it self looked worse than it does on my original xbox.If the old games barely work is see no point in the backwards compability.

Now that Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD fight is over, PS3 has a definitive advantage over XBox. Will be buying one as well.

try the new MLB 08 The Show, I have not like a sports game in years but I like this demo a lot. Definitely picking this one up when in comes out.

I've got a launch 60gb version, and haven't encountered any games that wouldn't run on it.

@op: If you like racing games you have to get GT:HD. A lot of people here liked motorstorm, so it's worth checking it out. I rented it once and I think it was a little more fun playing the full game, but I still wasn't too crazy about it. Also get pixeljunk racers as it's pretty fun too.

I got the $399 version, as I never used the features of the $600 version when I bought one (at launch or so). It's 40gb (IIRC) and comes with Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray.

If you like driving games I highly recommend GT5 Prologue demo. It's no longer available so you'll need to download it on your PC from some source and use a proxy utility but it's possible.

I'm addicted to that game.

Burnout demo is also a lot of fun even if you don't like driving games you may enjoy crashing your car in this game.

DMC4 demo is impressive. Especially that GIANT boss.
