It's a great game. I know people pass it off as a button masher, but it's not. You do have to choose the style for the enemy.

I still need to buy Uncharted and DMC4. Played the demos loved them. Probably get DMC4 + Dualshock. Though I'm not feeling spendy at the moment with my health being a bitch. ::

Enjoy the PS3 Mr Dawg. Add me on PSN... crainger ::

There are several incredible sequences where you must control the direction/trajectory of cannonballs and crossbow arrows towards your target, and the six-axis works beautifully here. Really puts you in the middle of the action.

Uncharted is also great. And if you want a good racing game, F1 Championship, like magus suggested, is a lot of fun and feels like the real thing.

I used to slam the PS3, but it's a hell of a deal to pick up such a great console PLUS blu-ray player. For ~349$ it just can't be beat.
So you bought a PS3? Which version?

20GB because I wanted hardware backwards-compatibility. W/ Heavenly Sword, Uncharted and Motor Storm for right now.

P.S. I always thought that rumble in controllers was silly. I love the weight and feel of sixaxis. Sony really nailed the controller with PS1. Don't ever mess with this controller Sony. I will keel u
The only thing I would like to see is them curve the L2 and R2 buttons the opposite direction. I have a heck of a time keeping my fingers on them in racing games because they slide right off of the button. If they were concave then your finger would stay put on the button.

Nice. How do you like Uncharted? I'm still thinking whether or not to pick up. I heard the firefights can get frustrating.

There was at launch. In addition to the smaller hard drive, the 20 GB versions didn't have the 60 GB's models' built-in WiFi and memory card readers. This is a personal thing, but I preferred the look of the 20 GB because the chrome-colored plastic strip on the old 60 GB and all current PS3 models looks really tacky.

Sony discontinued the 20 GB model pretty quickly. The console launched in November 2006. I bought mine in late-January '07 and had a really hard time finding one at retail.

I think it's incredible. The gameplay is perfect, IMO.. have had no trouble with the "firefights." If you've played Gears of War, you should be very good at Uncharted because the duck & cover systems are very similar. The graphics are also top notch, as are the animations.

The thing about Uncharted is the animations/physics actually make it feel like you're really running around and firing a gun, whereas Gears felt so stiff by comparison.
