Soon, v.soon.

Oh I had to pick up a token game + Bluray flick, they had sweet FA in the shop (and I didn't have time to go to a real shop - got a wedding to get to) so I grabbed the original Motorstorm, and Die Hard on Bluray.

I may also be waiting for a new controller. >.< I'll leave it on charge for a bit and see if it starts responding.

Hang on, I'm supposed to be on my way to a wedding. Goddamn lousy weddings.

First 'serious' bluray purchase, I recommend Bladerunner: The Final Cut - It is beyond awesome, the transfer and remastering are ridiculously well done.

If you are going to use it for movies etc too, the remote is a worthwhile addition.

The magic of the manufacturer or 'japanese' Gigabyte. where 1,000,000,000 bytes = 1 Gigabyte (10^9)

Whereas in software terms or formatted capacity we get the binary gigabyte or gigbibyte being 1,073,741,824 bytes (2^30)

The ratio of this is 0.9313

So 500x0.9313=465.65

It's a bit shit.

Another vote for Bladerunner: The Final Cut - it's a must have on Blu-ray

Such titles weren't mentioned because they were either PSN or too recent, Gruso asked for older titles that tend to be ubiquitous at pawn shops.

Indefinitely at that. Which means it could be cancelled eventually. Someone on kotaku commented that it was still possible for artists and designers to work on the DLC, with the programmers filling in the Move functionality i.e. the postponement is a cop out by Quantic Dream and the DLC was never happening in the first place.

Might be pre 3.15 firmware too if you need another box with linux on it but you'll miss out on the online stuff and psn so prob not worth the bother

Does anyone have more insight on the PS Plus thing? If I were to buy a 1month or 3 month (whatever it comes in) subscription and download the free games, then don't renew my membership do the games stay on my PS3 and playable even though I don't have a Plus account anymore?

no the 1 year sub gives you LBP for free to keep (2gb download) but wipeout and the other one's it's "free" in the fact you can access them for free while on PSN+ but when your subscription lapses you can't anymore - so more of a leasing arrangement to try out stuff - and you could always buy them at a discount if you don't want PSN+ anymore but want to keep the game.

yeah prob gonna sign up next pay as LBP on the hard drive would be good and get a boot up more often - though hanging to check out all the new functions on LBP2 ...
Also with PSN+ any avatars and themes and stuff they give you are free to keep too ... and no doubt with the discounts and "free" stuff I'll get value out of it.

Also have u checked out the Fat Princess patch for local co-op which works on and off-line? Sounds pretty cool... There's also DLC with new classes

Yeah 3 new classes looks pretty cool, pirate, ninja and giant. I'm probably going to get the DLC content soon. I'm not getting PSN+ because I'm going to live overseas for 6 months in december so it seems like a bit of a waste at the moment

This PS3 was previously owned by a full bogan. It was full of urban music, jpegs like "fuck off we're full" and lots of bikini girls, and ultra low quality divxs like Scarface. Formatted, quickly. I had older firmware (inc OtherOS) but I figured getting into some gaming & blu-ray would be more rewarding than a weekend dicking with YLD, so I'm updating now. Alas, I never knew ye.

Dropped into JB and ignored all your recommendations by picking up 3D Dot Heroes. I had Uncharted in hand, but decided to allocate monies to some flicks instead. Grabbed District 9 and Alice in Wonderland, and a media remote. No Bladerunner there. :'(

Uncharted isn't some marvel of innovation. It's just an extemely polished action adventure game with a half decent story. Like playing through an interactive version of a good action flick. Great fun the first time through, probably won't play it again for quite a while.
