PS3?

36 posts in this topic

Does it pay to get a PS3 if I already got a 360? There are a few games I want to play that are only for PS3 but is it worth it?

If you also have interest in a blue Ray player, you are already a step up from most PS3 owners as you have a desire to play games on it, mine is strictly for Blue Rays, I only kept 1 game that came with the system when I bought it used.

My buddy has a 360 and bought a PS3, he loves both, and has yet to use the BluRay.

I bought it more for the Blu-Ray here as well, figured might as well get the PS3 so there's more games to play than just the Wii.

The PS3 is a good system and the Blu Ray factor is big now with the fall of HD-DVD. You will be happy with it. Especially if you ever owned a PS2.

Having said that, I've never really been able to get used to the feel of the PS3 controllers both with form factor and design. I prefer the XBOX style with letters instead of symbols and the triggers with single shoulder buttons. The latest revision of XBOX controller is darn near perfect.

I have always been a Playstation controller fan. But the PS3 RULES!

I just found a program that I can run on my computer and play all of the music from my computer through the PS3 on my Stereo.

They're also coming out with a deal for PS3 that will use the system as a HD Tivo.

If you have a big enough external hard drive, you can rip a bunch of DVDs onto it and play them with the touch of an X. Kind of like Comcast On Demand.

What is this program you are talking about that allows you play your music from your PC to PS3? Thanks

PC to PS3 for music, pictures, and videos is ready to go out of the box if your home is networked.

I love my PS3, but Xbox has some really cool games that I can't get. So I go to my buddies. Gears of War 2 rocks!

What games does the PS3 have that you like? SOCOM online is ok. I'd rather play COD W@W though.

I use my PS3 daily. The games coming out lately are excellent and many more in development that has me pre-ordering just to make sure I don't miss out. The HOME network will be sweet, if it ever get's released. If you own a PSP your even better off for streaming wireless content to your PSP from the PS3 anywhere with an internet connection. Good luck.

So even though I have a 360 you guys are saying I should go ahead and buy a PS3? If I decide to buy it I think I'm gonna do it here in the next week or so. Thanks for the feedback!

Home open beta is now out, I am not sure how I feel about walking thru a virtual house and mall just to spend $$$ on lamps, furniture and clothes.

What i like on my ps3 is that i can download free game demos and play them before i go and buy the game. I also like how i can go on the internet and play music video off you tube when i have ppl over instead of the radio. It makes is a little more fun cause everyone can go and pick there own songs.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
