Hell has frozen over

    Newer Older

    I've been trash talking the PS3 console ever since it came out. Mostly because it lacked a proper online presence and I still think its not quite there compared to the XBOX Live experience. Also the PS3 lineup just didn't seem all that attractive to me.

    But the PS3 is almost another year older, the system is more mature and there seems to be a few more interesting titles coming out. Namely Little Big Planet.

    If you want to show me the reigns a bit or slap me around in LBP, feel free to hook up.

      I like the PS3 controllers better than the XBox ones :) But then I'm used to PS system more.

      I still don't have a PS3... :(

      I'm waiting for GT5, then I'll finally make the plunge.

      I totally want to play Little Big Planet! Almost thinking of getting a PS3 just for that purpose. :) I love this shot - very clean. I want to make one of these with my NES controllers, don't mind if I do, okay? ^__^

      Eric Flexyourhead Yeah that GT Prologue thing really doesn't hold water, its pretty and all but in terms of overall experience I found Forza Motosport 2 much better. Hopefully GT5 will have a better feel to it.

      melissa_sucks LBP was pretty much the tipping point for me getting a PS3. Plus the fact that it was on sale at Superstore for $350. I always get suckered by sales. I don't mind here, a class NES controller shot would be cool.

      Get Tversity to stream your video podcasts. (my favs are diggnation and the totally rad show)

      get playon to stream your netflix, hulu, CBS, ESPN (I'm super close to canceling the cable tv!).

      Most of the time I'm not even using my playstaion to play games. (You probably do all this with your xbox but just in case you didn't :)

      Alright alright, I completed it but it's not as epic as your smooth blacks with the PS3 controller:

      pospressure : Thanks for the tips, but unfortunately I don't really have a Windows machine at my disposal, my laptop is a Mac and my other machine is Ubuntu :/, will have to dig around for linux equivalents.

      bmhc.photography I can't get enough of LittleBigPlanet, its just been so long since there's been a good side scroller and this is just so much more than that even.

      FlorinC Ah I wish I had that kind of gaming time...

      I can't believe the PS3 was on sale for $350. What bundle is this? I thought the systems were going for like $600+?

      melissa_sucks I got the 80GB with DS3 controller. It was a two day sale at Superstore. HOWEVER, starting today (Friday, Nov. 21) EB is having a special (which an even better deal than what I got). The same package (80GB, with DS3) PLUS 1 game for $399. A good game too: LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, MSG4, NHL09 or a couple of other ones. Just confirmed, went with friend to the EB at Queensborough Landing to get his package.

      That's hilarious! I just came to view this photo because it was featured on this article, and I find you live in the same city as me, and there's a comment from someone who I've exchanged comments with as well! Small world. :)
