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.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
