I bought this and gave it too my bro for free, as someone gave him an XBox for free at work! Jammy git.

Still, now I get to play games I have wanted too for ages, like Half Life 2!

Do you like Burnout 3 - Takedown?

To be honest, I prefer B2:POI on my PS2. Music, and the simplicity makes it more fun for me.

What does Burnout 3 do better? So far all I have noticed, is that the graphics are better. Think that they have tried to jazz it up a bit to much, and seems a bit naff because of that. Anyone agree?

Maybe I just haven't played it enough!

Is Burnout Revenge any good? Another in Cash Generator, but with a £5 price tag.

Like to scrimp and save, would buy it for £2.50 without hesitation.

If you like Takedown, you'll like Revenge. However, if you are more of a fan of the original two Burnout games, then Revenge may be too far along the "crash into things" route for you... I love ALL of the Burnout games I've played.

Bought myself an R4DS this week, so checking out some homebrew for the DS...

Takedown is the first Burnout I've played, and I'm loving it!

Mrs Carlos is really enjoying the crashes too...she gets points for driving badly at last....

EDIT She is a great driver in real life, I meant in Sonyworld

The lack of quality games is frustrating,

Zelda is amazing!

Resi 4 looks good, but I've played it to death on the PS2

Red Steel was quite a shock, it's quite playable worth a try if you can pick it up for £20
without wanting to pimp my show again (well actually, I DO want to :wink: ) we chat about exactly that subject on Show 1 of WG-Ax and come up with our own ideas for what should be made for the Wii.

2 Gamecube ports and an average FPS when there's several better, prettier ones on other consoles.

It's not inspiring is it? :)

TWENTY BLOODY QUID mind. It hasn't arrived yet. I do hope it's actually a decent game too...
Its ok. Its not Tetris though. Price has rocketed since you need it to downgrade though.

This week I bought a Wii with Wii Sports, Wii Play (plus Wiimote), and Harry Potter (which isn't half bad, actually).

What?!! If I can pick up a copy down here for 8 quid. Either you got in a mad bidding war on Ebay, are very picky in only buying a brand new copy or got ripped off. The game is quite addictive & easy to get into so maybe it will be worth the money to you.
I take back my earlier comment as I have read Antiriad's comment on using the UMD to downgrade the PSP & watched the very high Ebay prices. I will wash my mouth with soap and water now.
