1...pay a lot less for the cable. There are much cheaper alternatives, and I'm sure someone will post the link to monoprice soon.

2....Get the Orange Box. I plan on getting that for 360/ps3 when I get either one, only because my computer cries when I look at the system requirements.

Check the PS3 news thread.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...33721&page=106

Have/get an HDTV.

Get a decent Blu-ray movie.

Buy reasonably priced HDMI cable ($15.00 or so); see monoprice.

As for games, post what types of games you typically play, and then we can easily make recommendations.

I have a ps3 and there really isn't a lot of "must have" games. Formula 1 is cool. Any sports games from 2k sports are good. IDK really

as mentioned above, get a nice HDTV if you dont have one already and some blu ray movies, i can't honestly recommend any of the games since none of them are really 'must haves' or outstanding.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma (if you're into that & didn't play it on XBOX) was incredible.

Heavenly Sword looks like a lot of fun.

There's tons of demos on PSNetwork to keep you busy.

You should try LAIR. (rent it, buy it if you love it; some people do).

Motorstorm is a great game too.

WarHawk is worth the money, 39.99 online or 60 with the jabra bluetooth headset.

warhawk will be out thursday on dvd for $39.99 without the headset if you want as well, gives you something to resell if you already have a headset.

Are there any PS3 games with decent graphics, or at least decent anti-aliasing? So far, all the real systems I've seen have just aliased the hell out of everything. Jaggies FTL.

Folkore seems to have a soft lens affect, if you know what I mean. I didn't see much jaggies there.

Lair, which I like, has a shimmering affect. But I'm on a tube TV. I dunno how it looks at 1080p.

Resistance, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, NG: Sigma, Motorstorm, Dirt. All great games. Good job getting ahold of a 60GB, has all the features plus the hardware for BC \o/

Lol @ PS3 hating 360 owners in a PS3 thread. Douchenozzles.

The PS3 blows goats. It's hard to program games for it, that is why you are seeing such few games for it. It's expensive as ****. You need to buy better cables and a better TV to enjoy it, LOL.

It's an overpriced, hyped, piece of ****, just like the iPhone.

Clearly, you've got a Ph.D in video games. You should steer the industry, friend. We would all be better for it.

I'm sorry. I guess I didn't realize the PS3 was overselling everything out there and getting good reviews.



Gameplay and third party support > good graphics

Here are some popular responses:

Return it!

Get a 360!

Consoles suck, get a PC.

PS3 sucks! Xbox is so much better! Once I get mine back from microsoft, Halo 3 will PWN the PS3!
-------------------------------------------------------------

Being serious though, Warhawk is a great game if you have a broadband connection. 32 people online with 4 player split screen, also online.

I haven't tried LAIR, but it from what I hear it's not that bad.

As of next week, this week's PS store update will have happened, and Ratchet and Clank's demo will be up, as well as whatever else is going up plus whatever goes up next week as well.

Rainbow six vegas is still being played, and if you want a good FPS with teamwork online, you can pick that up.

Oblivion, Game of the year comes out within the next week or two I believe as well.

for all you ps3 haters, tell me why you think 360 is better? i've played 360 in HD and didn't think it was that special, besides, im used to playstation, i like the simple controls and what not, xbox is always so complicated, and they dont have it at all here in israel so if something happened, i.e it broke or something i'd be ***** out of luck, at least they have ps3 here. idk, im going to go for it, i'm not a HUGE fan of 360. besides, i've already got a SICK tv- sorry to all you 360ers wtih ****ty tvs.
