    I have finally gotten a PS3. I have heard that there are not many good games around at the moment. Does anybody have any recommendations of any games they have tried and liked.

    for the real games, you're going to have to wait till christmas unfortunately.

    In the meantime, get a copy of motorstorm (till colin mcrae:dirt comes out) and then your fave fps (resistance:FOM is good, map packs can be bought on line too now) and maybe a copy of oblivion for those rainy days on the sofa...

    And lets not get into crying about who's console is better than who's... leave that to the rest of the internet...

    Thanks for your advice guys. I got Motorstorm and Genji with the console. Also bought Sonic for the kids. Might need to get an FPS though.
    Console looks good and am enjoying the picture quality. This is the first device I have had which makes use of the HD TV.

    Tony Hawks Project 8 is pretty cool!

    COD3 - I thought was pretty lame

    BUT Motorstorm and FightNight is worth looking at - you can pick them up for about 25 now off of fleabay!

Been playing PES and motorstorm so much Ive not opened the others yet... maybe I should claim the bravia back off the kids! Also tho, download Gauntlet (old school gaming) and Tekken Online for some button thrashing action...

    apparently....and dont hold me to this.....they are bringing out a right good game called 'how to buy a decent gaming system in 3 simple steps' with different controllers to the previous version and doesnt require a blue ray player to make it appealing:moa:

    just kidding fellas...... a ps3 salesman in meadowhall pissed me off, stopped to have a look at the graphics on the big HD tvs they had set up, asked me if im interested in it, told him missus had bought me xbox 360 to which he replied ,so when you gonna upgrade....the cock..... theres hardly any difference....xbox can do things the ps3 cant and vice versa. All most probably unoticeable to the average consumer....like me.... the ******* retard.....

    anyway, rant over :eek:)

    If the salesman said that to me I wouldnt hesitate in giving a 2 hour lecture in fanyboyism and how the best gaming platforms are at least a grand and come with Windows

    Sony messed up with the PS3, it was a year late, its to expensive, the 360 versions of the same games run better and Sony have to pay off publishers to get exclusive bluray films to push sales of the console.

    Fortunately for owners they have a decent line up of exclusive games this year but it still wont sway me to buy one and I have been a gamer for 16 years

    Sorry to rant in this thread, I dont blame people for buying one simply on the back of the success of the PS2, I just feel sorry for you guys!

    well yeah, the PS3 has had a hard birth... came late, cost a packet, didnt have many friends, and still waiting on the major quality releases. No doubt Xbox has the more outstanding library for new gen, but IF and its an IF the developers can utilise the power of the PS3, it will be worthwhile for its owners, and go over what the xbox is capable of.

    BUT, by that time, no doubt BillG will have brought something new out...

    The Live service is great, and over and above Playstation Network... but now network capabilites are better than the PS2, we will see an increase in numbers.

    Either way though, there will always be fanboys... its what makes the conversations all the more fun! LOL... /times change... different needs for different gamers....

    as a multi format owner, Im a little pissed that the biggest expense doesnt get me the best games... though I still have a good PS2 library guess I gotta wait till summer :tocktock:

    Thats true I was expecting some jumped up replies TBH! I hope that developers do bring some decent games to the system and GT5 does look very good but the lack of in game footage runing on an actual PS3 is scarce, I dont think the PS3 has as much power as some people would let you believe, take Kill Zone two, it looks good whilst running but little things like shoddy AI make them selves obvious whilst watching vids of it running. Fanboys are amusing, especially on gamers forums. I own a PC primarily for gaming, I recently bought an Xbox for games such as Forza and other games that are pick and play typical console style games, also all of my mates own an Xbox and I was missing out!

    Having both in my house..

    The xbox is good.. but the thing that lets it down. is that bloody awful "disc is unreadble message" this isn't just this console as i know plenty of people with them.. also. the three red lights.. that was a bit of a major cock up.. microsoft even knew it, having to extend everyones warrantys..
    Another thing about the xbox is that they keep on ripping off their customers: they release one xbox.. ok. then now there is the elite.. and this year yet ANOTHER 360 is being released.. not to mention the variations inbetween the models.. you can't trust a early second hand one, it may not have enough fans, it may well have three red lights.. it will not read discs.

    so How long exactly has it taken microsoft to get it right..? about the same time it's taken for the ps3 to come out..?

    not a bad console other than that.. and in my personal opinion the controllers on an xbox is a block of plastic with some colourful buttons on, and just isn't ergonomic in the slightest.

    but yeh when it works, not bad..

    but for reasons above. and gran turismo. i got the ps3..

    *waits for backlash..?*

    no backlash here... this is a car forum! ;) Go say that on the xbox site tho! ;) AHAHAH.

    The red ring of death, yeah... a cock up... but its been recified (at least to me) satisfactorily.

    Bong Water, yeah I agree... theres no excuse for shoddy AI... just a waste of game time, and they have struggled with ingame footage but looks like that could be why they are giving us it bit by bit, until maybe they 'can' get some game footage??

    Sony shop on Eccy road is just up from Nonnas on the next block by the bus stop, but its called Hewitts. Nice fella and his daughter running it last time I was in, but they always try to do well on price. Although, Ive not seen a PS3 in there, the rest of the shop is all sony. :think:

    Call of duty 4, nfs pro street, colin mcrae dirt, tony hawks proving ground and motorstrom.

    Not long had a PS3 and never really been into that type of thing but thought I'd give it a go. Loving Resistance FoM online and have just bought CoD4 so I shall send some buddy requests soon. Also have; Motorstorm, Fight Night and F1 for online gaming if anyone else has them.
