Congrats on the purchase. I've been meaning to get Uncharted and DMC4 but I've been really busy with school. I'll probably get them when spring break comes around.

Bought DMC4 + bonus DVD last week. Great game, and works well with Dualshock3.

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.
Yeah the Spiderman 3 package was hard to find but I didn't try. I've already seen it so no biggie for me.

No kidding on the FPS. I can't stand to play them on consoles.

FYI for Netiflix, switch your account to que up Blu-ray movies. It will always ship them first and regular DVDs if the BD isn't out yet.

Is Uncharted really that good? I played the demo and it was pretty cool. I like the Tomb Raider type games.

I will say I enjoyed 360's UI better. I think it is just a preference thing. I like PS3s also.

I've only played the demo as well but from what I've seen the game has some great variety in its environments which is something I like in single player games. Also, it's a great game to showcase the PS3's graphical capabilities and your TV.

oh it does like nice. I need a new TV cuz I broke the screen on this one last fall. The TV works but as you can expect, it is just a bit blurry all over an of course there is a huge crack on the right side but it will have to do till I save up for a new 1080p TV. I personally think that 42 inch TVs are the perfect size. Anything bigger and it is too much for me.


no sexual joke you pigs...

I suggest getting Burnout Paradise. Its a bit confusing at first but the crashes are awesome and the city is huge with 250 miles of roads. Also try renting uncharted. Its one of the best looking games on any console.

The PS3 is purdy... but I just spent my silly money around Christmas on the PC.

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.
Congrats

Now start folding

-edit-

Just read your noise comment. Make sure you keep that thing ventilated. If it ever gets warm enough that the fan kicks to the next level, it will drown out every single other electronic toy you have. My ps3 has only had the fan kick on twice since I bought mine but it made my Xbox360 sound perfectly silent by comparison. No joke but however loud you think your Xbox got at max, multiply that by x2.

Keep it ventilated and cool and you'll be just fine

I kinda want to block the air flow just to hear how loud the fan gets now....
