Default Finally got a PS3

I have to say I love my new PS3. I bit expensive, not as many games as I would like but the pros far out weigh the cons for me.

1. Blue-Ray is FRIKING AWESOME even on my TV at 1080i.

2. I don't play a whole lot of different games. I stick to a few and play them for a year or so.

3. When I do want to play a new game, I usually rent it.

I liked my 360 but it was so damn noisy. If you wanted to watch a movie you would hear a friking DC10 take off from your living room. Not cool. PS3 is silent.
Don't get me wrong, I loved my 360 but it isn't a PS3.

Any fan boys that actually want to give me crap about this will get a complete plastering of flameage from me. I am not a Sony fan or a Microsoft fan. I just like this product.

I don't buy movies, Netflix FTW! I also mainly rent games but I did buy MX vs ATV: Untamed. That game is very much worthy of buying.


I do need some input on some games. I want the best basketball game, football, baseball and a good racing game that you can build up your car like Need For Speed Underground.

Udawg, Look into getting the MLB Showtime games, try the demo. They are usually one of the highest rated baseball games (not many to choose from though). Racing games aren't many no the PS3 but GT5 Prolouge releases soon. You can always try F1 Championship, I loved it!

I just grabbed a PS3 yesterday myself. I had to actually ride around a couple stores to find a 40gb model that had the Spiderman 3 Blu Ray. I'm loving it so far! The movie looked great even in 1080i, and the thing is so quiet. It absolutely blows my 360 away.

Anybody got any suggestions for any action games? I don't want any FPS games on it since I have a great PC. I was thinking maybe checking out Warhawk or something, but I couldn't find a demo.

Oh yea and Netflix is the way to go! I already have a ton of movies in queue, and maybe I'll get a few of them this week.
