Is it that good or would we be wasting our time?

The only reason to buy a PS3 is if you want a cheap Blu-Ray player. Other than that, do yourself a huge favor and get an Xbox 360.

Well, not everyone has a setup where they can connect their pc to their 50 inch LCD TV.

Huh? If you have the TV to use it with a console then it costs $10 to connect a PC. Sure if the rig is ancient you might have problems, but you aren't going to play any of the best new games on a rig that old anyway.

C'mon man, it's not that bad. Dudes acting like it's the hardest thing in the world is to play a FPS with a controller.

Yeah it really is. Maybe not the hardest thing, I imagine a trackball or touchpad would be worse, but compared to mouse and keyboard a controller is inprecise(which is everything), clunky and awkward. Racing or Sports games Ill take it every time, but to try and play FPS with it is to minimize your chances.

Mutant League Ice Hockey was sooo much better :)

Also, to whoever said it, you don't need a 2500 rig to play Crysis. I play it very comfortably on a rig that cost about 1500AU which is like a 1000 rig in the US with the way we get extorted on PC stuff. Not running it absolutely maxed out resolution wise, but everything else is. Just need to know how to configure a PC to run it.

I was in San Diego and was adamant on getting the $299 ps3. I went to the gamestop downtown and they didn't have the $299 one. Only the $399. Then the fat guy over there went on saying why I should just save up my extra $100 and buy the 60gb one. Since I wasn't buying what he said I just wnet back to the hotel.

I did some research on the two ps3's and after 3 hours of thinking I decided to buy thr $399 one. I went to the nearest gamestop and they didn't have any ps3s in stock.


The next day I went to a Sony store and they both had the $299 and $399 one. I was about to buy the $399 but they did not have nba 2k8.

I ended up buying nothing at all.

Yesterday I was in Miami and they didn't have any Wiis.

Lol...Im sure that helped a lot...

You can get a 40g version of the PS3 for 399 now. It comes with free internet and your choice of 5 Blue Ray DVD's.

The comparable XBOX 360 setup comes with a 20g HD and 2 ok games for 349. The internet is 49 a year bringing the total to 398.


I'de go with the PS3. You get a Blue Ray player, larger HD, free online, and a stronger overall system (in my opinion).

Why in god would it ghost on a PC if it doesn't ghost on a less powerful PS3 or 360? Some people really have their heads buried in the sand when it comes to PC gaming, looks like Sony has really won that battle if it has everyone as ignorant as they seem.

For a straight out answer, my 46" inch LCD doesn't ghost at all.
