The Official PS3 Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm not just basing this off of the responses in this thread but over the past month from my own general observations and conversations with people I feel like the PS3 is going to be the number #1 console sold this holiday season. I think the recent price drop has a lot to do with that too. I don't think anyone would disagree that the PS3 is better then the Xbox 360 the only different before hand was that the MSRP of the PS3 was like $100 more then the 360 and now that they are basically at an even price point we're going to see PS3 sales increase this Holiday season.

Japan sales will contribute massively what with FF XIII being exclusive over there.

 

 

Woo GT5 demo on Dec 17th, and one of the holders in the top 20 fastest times will get a chance to race for GT Academy :-o

They have movies on the PSN now? I probably won't ever buy them but it's good to know just in case.

 

They've had movies over in the US for about a year now. TV shows too.

So don't let anyone tell you you're not worth the earth,

These streets are your streets, this turf is your turf,

Don't let anyone tell you that you've got to give in,

Cos you can make a difference, you can change everything,

Just let your dreams be your pilot, your imagination your fuel,

Tear up the book and write your own damn rules,

Use all that heart, hope and soul that you've got,

And the love and the rage that you feel in your gut,

And realise that the other world that you're always looking for,

Lies right here in front of us, just outside this door,

And it's up to you to go out there and paint the canvas,

After all, you were put on the earth to do this,

So shine your light so bright that all can see,

Take pride in being whoever the [bleep] you want to be.

+1, I really think Sony have tried hard this year to make the PS3 the best it can be.

Oh man, I just finished playing the GoW3 demo a second ago (got a redeem code ftw) and it's awesome. Don't know if I'll be buying it though.

 

I still have to play the first two. My PS2 broke by the time those games came out so I moved on to an xbox. I'll probably pick them up now that they have been ported to the PS3.

Hmm, what's not working? You can't see anything, or...? Try holding the On/off button for 5-6 seconds when the PS3 is off, until it beeps twice. Then restart it.

You need a HD TV, to use a PS3, I believe.

 

Wrong. At the moment I use a SD TV and it works fine. Probably buying an HD soon though, as my SD is too small.

I shall take my flock underneath my own wing, and kick them right the [bleep] out of the tree. If they were meant to fly, they won't break their necks on the concrete.
So, what is 1.111... equal to?

10/9.

 

Please don't continue.

I never played the first two, to be honest. I just played the Chains of Olympus demo on PSP. In other words, I don't know anything about the story. But like I said, I probably won't buy it.

Only time that has ever happened to me is when I take my PS3 and hook it up to the TV at my parents house which is 1080p. I have to make sure I degrade my output settings to 720p before bringing setting my PS3 back up to my TV otherwise I wont get an imagine have to do the reset thing where it lowers your settings to the lowest setting possible.

Weird. Have you tried any other type of cable to connect your PS3 on your new tv?

Just switch TV and PS3 off, plug them in, put the HDMI cable in both, then make sure the PS3 is in standby (Red LED), and hold the power button. It will bleep once, then again. At this, you let go and it will be showing on your TV at 540p. Just click 'Yes' then 'Yes', then if that resolution is ok, click 'Yes' again.

 

Problem solved.

So don't let anyone tell you you're not worth the earth,

These streets are your streets, this turf is your turf,

Don't let anyone tell you that you've got to give in,

Cos you can make a difference, you can change everything,

Just let your dreams be your pilot, your imagination your fuel,

After all, you were put on the earth to do this,

Does anyone here own the PS3 Slim? Me and killerwatt are thinking about buying a new one, since our current one is nearly out of warranty and seems to be running a little slow,
