Windows 7: PlayStation 3 Owners?

I have a PS3; but it resides in the home theater rig. I only play Blu Rays with it and occasionally browse the Internet with it.

I installed pinall 3D into Windows 7 yesterday. That satisfies my 47 year old butt's gaming needs. LOL.

Simply amazing how the PlayStation 3 turned out this generation, people shoved their way into game stores to get the PS1 and PS2 and could give a flying F about the Xbox or Dreamcast, yet they were both far superior game consoles of the time. Xbox 360 comes along, EVERYONE must get it, yet then the RROD and E74 Errors pop up. Gamers never really learn from their mistakes, keep buying 360 knowing of its 54% failure rating and time wasted waiting for it to be fixed. PlayStation 3 comes along, everyone ignores it... Yet it's FAR cheaper, and FAR superior in EVERYWAY compared to Xbox 360. I don't get it.

Oh yea, PSN Online is now way better than Xbox LIVE, Firmware 3.00 has enabled many things that LIVE can do...and then some. Plus...it's FREE.

I actually have all the consoles and hand-helds. Before someone makes a comment, no I am not rich (far from it) but I am very good at finding a bargain and budgeting...eventhough video games are a losing investment. Anyhow my favorites of all of them would have to be the PSP as a hand-held (when it is hacked and because of Dissidia FF) and the PS3 as a console. I will admit though that the only time I turn on either the 360 or the PS3 is just for an update as of late. The Wii would be the same if I hadn't hacked it also. All in all my PSP gets the most mileage (the DS gets as much when I play a new game on my R4 for it)

Honestly, I feel there is absolutely no difference whatsoever between 720p and 1080p when it comes to the display. It's only the source material that matters. Here is a nice forum post on the AVS forums more or less backing up what I am saying;
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...t=767929&pp=30

I recently upgraded my television and cost was not a factor really in my decision and I went into the store and bought the Panasonic 720p plasma display. The guy at the store didn't even try to recommend anything else because it was obvious that I knew my stuff. I used the money saved on my tv to buy a blu-ray player, an HDMI cable and some movies. Still had money left over.

I've hung around in the AV world and on various forums and am pretty well read on the subject. Most people who try to convince you otherwise base it strictly on "more has to equal better". But the limitations of human vision don't necessarily mean that you will be able to actually see this difference.

The only time I recommend a higher resolution will be if you are hooking up a computer to the display. That is really the only time I would recommend going higher than 720p. If it's just for HDTV and movies....paying more for 1080p is wasting money.

i've had mine for awhile, its a 40gb that my dad won at a show. I've played it to the point that, with just save data and game extensions that my 40 gigs is filled. Im looking into buying a better hard drive.

As far as I know all laptop drives up to 320GB will suffice (correct me if I am wrong somebody)

Another 360 owner here, although I've only used it a handful of times in the last 9 months.

On the plus side, there less chance of it getting RRoD

@ Zidane - sounds about right. (keep the receipt j.i.c)

i think the only reason i dont own any consoles is that the fact of buy one, foe just one game (ps3 - metal gear 4, 360 - ...idk) is kinda dumb. most of the 'good' ones make their way to PC anyway. plus i still dont understand what these 'achievements' and 'trophies' are for... someone tried to explain it to me, but he was unclear of what you actually 'win' (which im assuming is nothing).

but if i do get a console, it'll probably be a 360, despite the 54% fail ratio.

lmao...just last week a good friend of mine had his 360 RRoD. I decided to let him borrow mine since he is an avid 360 player. If mine RRoDs in the process than oh well...I won't cry over it. I like the 360 just fine but not enough to be fanatical about it. The only thing I am a little bit fanatical about would be the PSP. If you happen to get one and you like to venture onto the dark side of things...hack it and see truly the beast that lies within
