So much for painting Laughing

CoD4 is fantastic! Arcade mode gives me a headache tho..

Assassin's Creed is on the radar once certain fellows pay up Wink

Unless you wanted it for the blue ray player the PS3 was a bad choice.

I bought the PS3 last week it freaking rocks!!!
kicks the ass off of XBOX!!!!
oh unless you only like Halo sorry for those people I mean no harm.
I also got Rock band and Starwars legos.
Way better than XBOX versions.
Oh and you don't have to pay to play online.
Sure they may be slow out the gate with games but they are gaining momentum, but they are getting it right or they could flood the market with fluff crap games.

Congrats on the purchase and don't let anyone put it down you made the better choice.

Except on PS3 you get the following.

30 fps frame rate on ALL of EA sports games. 30 fps on the Orange box (probably one of the best deals in gaming ever). When compared to 60 fps on the 360. Call of Duty has a slower Frame Rate too Sad

You also don't get Mass Effect, Bioshock, Crackdown, Halo 3 and a bunch of other exclusive down the line.

Granted you don't pay for online, but who cares when a fraction of the people play online. Plus no mic as standard, so have fun co-ordinating anything when people cannot communicate. You really do get a lot when you pay 5 bucks a month, including cross-game friends lists and inviting.

Final Fantasy and Metal Gear are in the pipeline. So it's not so bleak. I can see myself getting one at that point. Maybe.

In the end though, it all depends on what you want. If you got it to play rock band and star wars legos, you really aren't taking advantage of what the machine has to offer.

That and congrats on the fact you can now play with one CAG member!

I count 5 of us with 360s, all active xbox live users.

PS3 games will continue to be ports of 360 games (except for the exclusives) so expect to see lower frame rates and delays (both orange box and blacksite missed their release dates by over 2 months). 360 is lead platform, and will continue that way until sony can communicate with developers how to program more easily for their platform.

I saw way more impressive stuff at PAX coming down the line for xbox 360 than PS3, it just isn't the primary platform anymore...

I'm hoping Marc says he bought it for the Blu-ray player Smile

Makari: What do you mean by getting it right?

Their big exclusives, lair and heavenly sword were considered pretty big flops for anything other than the most casual gamer. While Ratchet and Clank + Uncharted do offer some good gaming this fall, I would hardly call it getting it right Wink

But, after all that, to each his own.

Wasn't trying to put you two down, just saying I think you made the wrong decision. Wink

I always forget to scroll down this far Embarassed Some points..

Matt actually hit it on the head (honest!) as the sports "highlight" DVDs done for our kids have been for BluRay. The SuperMom that does them for everyone is a wizz and that is how she rolls.

I also blame my bro-n-laws who swayed me over Thanksgiving. They each have one (along with oodles of games for me to borrow) and raved over and over.

For the ability to not have to piss off the wife with another one of my classic "reWire" ..WiFi was another point. From what I read the 360 needed direct ethernet plug in. Our home is all about the Linksys.

The classics Sony controller (damn those wireless are light) helps us old guys as well Laughing

I hunted the great suburbia for a "newer" 360 as you boys suggested. I received alot of shrugs and headlight looks. GameCity360 folks said they would not be in circulation until Spring. A purchase with impatience for sure.

Who knows. My Christmas list never changes for the family gift givers (Best Buy gift cards ftw) so I may horde those until Spring. You're allowed to have both, right Cool

I definitely plan on having both at some point. I love metal gear and final fantasy, so it's a must.

The purchase makes sense given the reasons.

Oh and that soccermom sounds scary, turning out blueray disks for pee wee highlight reels. Hah! Did they even shoot the footage with a hi-def camera?

Plus, at 60 bucks a pop, borrowing games is another good reason.

So... I'll let you off the hook marc...

All I know is she pissed off about 90% of the team as they have no players. Cheap as hell to make from what I understand.

Cheap? I didn't know that... I guess I just assumed.

CJ: I also enjoy the Wii, but not for much beyond mindless party gaming. It's just not that deep right now. I am excited to sink my teeth into Mario though.
