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.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
