Default So Sony claims another victim.

...me!!

Finally broke the piggy bank on the weekend and got myself a companion for my Wii. First thoughts are: what an amazing console! I've got a Wii but in terms of class and style this has it pwned.

My games:

Heavenly Sword
GT5
Assassin's Creed
Uncharted
Burnout
DMC4

Tho Heavenly sword only lasted three days. An amazing game tho (looks better than Gears of War in my opinion)

Don't you mean God of War? I mean that'd be the same genre at least :P

But yeah I'm having a feeling that I'll be using my PS3 far more than the Wii once I get my HDTV (right now I don't use either of my three consoles )

The PS3 has some amazing media playback capabilities too. Take a video file and put it on your PS3. Press X then press the d-pad to the right and hold it. You will get slow motion, but what's awesome is it'll even play the audio, slowly. If you press d-pad to the right when not paused, you get 1.5x speed (with the first press) and the audio is sped up. Until I did this on my PS3, I NEVER was able to do that on any platform. Only analog video/audio could do that. Also, if you press select when watching a video, you get a nice estimate of the bitrate in real time. People often use that to measure the bitrate in bluray videos.

Check out Pixeljunk Monsters and Super Stardust HD on PSN as well, great games.

GT5P and Uncharted are the 2 best looking console games this gen, and behind Crysis graphically only.

MGS4 is coming out very soon, and I can't wait for LBP too.

And MGS4 is really close now as well, just about a month to release or something like that right? The PS3 is approaching better times

I'd recommend Haze 3 days ago, but it received terrible reviews. Too bad I pre-ordered mine. Can't cancel it now.

Where are you shopping that you can't cancel? Even when the game comes out you should be able to ask for your deposit back.
