This is true. I tried doing that with Knights of the Old Republic a few years back, and while it was interesting to see the differences, it still didn't match up to the first time I played it. The opposite can be said for a game like Gears or Halo 3.

Yeah, last time I played I went on this French Connection-esque car chase throughout the city... fucking epic. That must be sick on LIVE, too.

I've never played GTA IV LIVE, but I should.

Now that I think on it, running around Liberty City with friends LIVE would be insane.

If we play that together, we have to roll around as The Rogues... or the Baseball Furies.

Oh yeah, I was still very happy with my deal for the TV. It terms of aussie prices, it was bloody brilliant.

I still think the PS3 takes the cake, so yeah the Xbox has some more games, but my playstation 3 has not had one single problem in 15 months.

I sometimes forget that you live in a trailer in Tennessee, sorry. Do you see anyone but DaveC(anada) telling you to get a PS3? Clown. You ask for advice, get it, and then do not use it. You suck as a mod.

we can't all live in mansions in chicago, being highly successful executives. i thought that was the point for asking for advice on the internet?

op: "hey guys, i need your advice. i got this girl knocked up but i'm only 13 help"

dude 1: "abort! abort!"

dude 2: "get an abortion dude, srsly"

dude 3: "there's also adoption"

dude 4: "i'll pm you links to planned parenthood"

op: "thanks everyone, we're keeping the baby"

I think everyone's been surprised they haven't lowered the price, but Japanese companies are notoriously slow to admit defeat on pricing, sales, etc. I honestly don't know what the future of the PS3 will be at this point. Everyone assumed (including myself) that programmers would figure out how to program for the hardware, but as of right now, it's starting to seem they just don't have any interest in putting in the time when they're going to get far better software sales on 360 or even the Wii.
Absolutely yes, the PS3's demand is lower than the Wii or the 360 right now, but that's because they've been out longer and have more games. Of course that's going to happen. Sony hasn't lowered the price because of the Blu-Ray player inside. It's easily the best BD player in the world, and $399 is a steal even if all you want to use it for is to watch movies.

And Metal Gear 4 is absolutely, absolutely, no chance in hell, NOT going to be released on the 360. Konami and Sony have exclusivity. It is NOT going to EVER happen.

Quote:
For now, I'd definitely go with 360. The PS3 may fix their business model and start focusing more on software in the future, and I really hope they do, but for now you can get a system with better games for less money in the 360.
Yes, there are some great games for the 360 (I'll probably buy one at some point in '09), but like I said, you get the Blu-Ray functionality, and that alone is worth it at a $399 price point. The PS3 is far and away the more technically powerful of the three systems, by MILES. And Metal Gear Solid is the best video game I've ever played. Period. LittleBigPlanet might be the funnest game ever created. You won't ever get to try either of those on Xbox.

And yes, Playstation Network is completely free.

I'm sure there'll be more posts to follow soon here, I've only gotten this far in the thread and felt this needed to be addressed.

I meant $1399 for a 40W. My bad. Even still though...

I've been told that I might be able to get it working if I vacuum the dust out of the inside. I live in a very old house and there's dust everywhere, and the thing's been on its side since August, so it makes sense that it's gummed up the works inside. It's worth a shot at least.

Anyways, my PSN ID is Zzyzx00.
