    Playstation 3 Review...

    This is just a small quote from a Playstation 3 review that I found on CNN.com...It's some of the only negative things that were said about it, but they bring a smile to my face...

    "Controlling games is pretty close to what PlayStation veterans are used to. The major shift this time is Sony has included a motion sensor in its controller (which has been redubbed the Sixaxis). In "NBA 07," for instance, twisting the controller will let you juke around an opposing player.

    The problem is that the motion doesn't feel natural here, as it does with the Nintendo Wii. Perhaps as developers get more used to the feature, they'll be better able to incorporate it into their games. Initially, though, you get the impression they were caught off guard when the feature was announced -- and rushed to find some way to include it.

    Gone also is the rumble effect from the controller -- an omission that has upset many Sony loyalists. Personally, I miss the shaking. The feeling of a slight rumble in your hands as you fired a virtual weapon added to the fun."


    PS3 is a powerful video game system, but far from perfect - Nov. 16, 2006

    Once you've plugged in and configured your PS3, you'll have to update the system software. Some (but not all) launch games will include that system update, which means the process will take 5 minutes or so. If not, you'll download and install the upgrade from the internet (as I did). This method takes more than 10 minutes. It's frustrating, especially having spent this much.
    Regardless of how humorous this is, what a great idea! I just hope they don't get stupid with updates and end up with a crapload of problems. I think the PS3 should do well... it looks promising. But, more importantly to me, when can I pick up my Wii
    WiiSports (obviously) / Redsteel / Excite Truck / TC:SO / Rayman RR / Wii Play / Sonic and the Secret Rings / Mad Catz Skinz

    just can't rip motion sensing and have it work with rumble in less than 2 months... Nintendo spent years with the concept and still hasn't perfected it as much as I'd like but made a huge leap from previous tries at it, it should be awesome none-the-less
    Yes a text sig

    My Wii is small...

    ROFLMFAO rummble is definetly NOT needed. I play nintendo super smash bros. and other gamecube games with a wave bird (that means no rumble) and i dont notice anything in the diference of "fun" when i use a normal controller. Really, rummble is not needed to make a game fun. I find it funny how you find the bad stuff for a console that is not made by nintendo and good stuff for nintendo products. Why not post both good and bad for all consoles? Il start by saying that "RedSteel" was way too over rated. The graphics are horible and the controls are no better. just my 2 cents.

    The Wiimotes rumble I think helps a lot!
    I turned it off and just couldnt go without it! Games like COD3 and Zelda feel much much better with it! So this time around I say that the rumble feature helps alot and is very necceasry!
