I have the MW3 edition Xbox and a PS3 but on hand I do prefer the PS3 although, you can't beat pc gaming :D


Indeed. Far better using a keyboard and mouse to play.

I use the Xbox for gaming, and the PS3 for bluray and streaming media.

if your not playing COD online get a ps3, if you are get an xbox. since ps3 got hacked its never been the same constant lag coz theyve had to put a silly amount of firewalls up!

I'm one of these rare people that doesn't own any form of game console and I don't play anything on pc either. Last thing I played was a ps2 :o many many years ago

Really contemplating a ps3. Where would be the best place to purchase one?

Right gents my sneaky Missus surprised me with a 500gb ps3 for xmas

Now I need to catch up on all the games I ain't played over the years from not having a ps3. Think gta4 might be first on the list.

Can anyone recommend me any decent games?

Having not owned or played a ps3 before, and the last thing I did play was a ps2 many years ago, I must say so far I am just finding my ps3 experience very annoying to the extent it's putting me off using it.


Every single thing needs numerous software updates before I can use it.

For example, 4 on demand, only wanted to have a mooch but had to update first, started watching a program, watched 3 adverts, first part of the program, 3 more adverts then the !Removed! thing froze on the last advert. Couldn't press any buttons not even the round ps button, had to turn the thing off by holding in the power button on the console.

When I turned it back on it said I didn't turn it off properly and had to do a system recovery.


Then every time I put a new cd in to play a game, it has to install even more software before I can play it. never had that on ps2


Also, is there a way off turning off the epilepsy warning that comes on every time i turn it on?

I'm a PS3 user thinking of getting a EggBox. I only play GT5 really.

As for constant updates, you'd better get used to it! Software is getting ever more complex and none more so than in gaming. The console sofware needs to be patched relatively often too, although I'm lead to believe there are more frequent updates on the Xbox360 (so the guys at work tell me). The next gen consoles (probably out next year) are going to be even more complex, so that's more patching, and very much larger patches! If you're a frequent gamer, you'd better make sure you have at least a 10Mb/sec connection to the Internet.
