Which puts you in the minority. You really think people care about a random stangers gamerscore? I find it hard to believe I am in the minority on that one. Because its a cheap way of buying a Blu Ray player. The PS3 sales have naff all to do with the games. And with the price cut, i would expect t...

Why reinvent the wheel? Achievements were a fantastic idea, I have no doubt virtually all games on all platforms will have them in a couple of years. The original point was online functionality though, on which they have no bearing. It's fun to achieve goals set by the developers but I have no inter...

If the PS3 had an online service that did a tenth of xbox live's coolness I'd complain about xbox live's pricing. Home may change things, we'll see. I personally don't think the XBL is as far in front as you think. All PSN needs for me is in game messaging and voice chat. Sony have been woefully sl...

When MS stop bending people over and charging for P2P gaming I might be interested.

Not posted for ages but can't beat a good console censored fest! :wink:

My copy has not arrived yet. :( I almost rented it today I am so desperate to play. It's the one game above all others I have been waiting for, even more so since the demo.

Tomb Raider was one of my favourite games one the PS1 and this feels like everything Tomb Raider should have become.

NoCD hacks are the way to go! Companies should find some other way to protect their games. There's something wrong when hacked games are more user friendly than the originals.

Not had any issues with Vista so far, but I think the oldest game I have tried to install is Titan Quest.

I can wait and get a cut down 40gig with no games for £300 or get a 60gig with 2 games for £350 :?
You can get the 40gig one from Blockbuster with Fifa 08 for £300.

I don't think average Joe Public gives two hoots for BC, all they will see is a PS3 for £300. It looks to me like the 60gig version is priced to clear stock as it is obviously a much better deal. Once it's gone I would not be suprised to see the 40gig come down in price. I expected Sony to get crus...

It's not just the games I mentioned. The box I saw had those games on the front but apparently there are various combinations of launch titles.

Rumour has it the pack is Motorstorm, RFoM and 2 controllers for £425.

The US price cut seems to be doing wonders for sales, only $20 more than the Elite.

Re: PS3 Price drop around the corner.

Worth also noting this new model marks the change to the incredibly broken software emulator in the US model with its fabulous 36% compatibility rate (also this may be better in newer firmware) Is this figure accurate? All the games I have wanted have worked perfectly. Thats only about 10 though ma...
