I would buy a second controler if you have more then one person playing. I would get a remote if you plan on watching movies, you can use a controller, but its nice to have. Then some fun games!

And a HDMI cable

Also some Blue Ray discs that are in 1080

Then you can skip the HDMI cable and use the component cable included.

There really isn't any must have right away, a Remote control is nice but not a must, you can use your normal control right away. You will need a head set if you are thinking of playing some online gaming, Other then that you are are set.

Do you know what games you are going to get??

I am pretty sure COD5 right away. I have a Wii, and (Wii) got screwed because COD4 wasn't released on it. I was going to get COD5 for the Wii, but now that I am gonna get a PS3, might as well make that my first game.

An FYI on the headset, you can use your Bluetooth set that you use for your Cellphone if you have one....that's what I do since I never use it on my phone.

Dual Shock controller. Not a must but cool especially when artillery is going off near you on COD W@W. Headset was covered.

I've converted from SOCOM to COD.

Anyone want to talk about must have games? Or must play games?

I like the new socom, the guns are good and the online play is good. There isn't a lot of glitchers unlike other games. I have never played COD but i'm going to get COD War so i will be able to compare them then. I think Zipper makes both COD and Socom so the games are very similar, COD is old School Socom is new school!!!

I have a Motorola Blue tooth and cant get it to work for my online gaming?? It connects but i can't talk or hear anything on it?

One game that I love is Warhawk. Online only, fly planes, ground attack, tanks, etc. Check it out.

I bought COD4 when it came out and just started playing it last week! I'm kinda slow on games. It is a good game. I'm going to have to get COD5 now.

When you do purchase an LCD TV, DO NOT buy the hdmi cables from best buy, etc. You can get them on e.bay for $10-15 vs. $50+. Just order them a week or 2 before you're going to buy the TV.

I think COD 4 is much funner and better than COD 5 IMO. You will definitely need another controller though because at some point there will be someone over that will want to play too lol!

Cental, try going to accessory settings then to audio device settings after you have synched the headset with ps3. Also, you may need to turn the headset on before you get into a game, if i try turning mine during a game i cant talk or hear with it. I just use the bluetooth work gave me cause i feel dumb using it with my phone.

If you like socom COD4 might be better since its modern warfare like socom. Ive been playing WaW alot and like it but would go back to 4 if i had to choose just one.

    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
