Does anyone have The Orange Box, and plays it online? How many servers does it have going? Is it hard to find a game to join? What are the pings like? Or if you have any other experience playing any online FPS on the PS network, regarding community size or quality of play, I'd be interested to hear about it.
The recent win for Blu-Ray, the ability to use a keyboard and mouse - and it seems to function exactly like a PC mouse - and the ability to upgrade the HDD with ease (I can safely buy the $399 version and upgrade the HDD later), made it a relatively easy decision to make. The only thing it doesn't have - yet - that I really wanted is the ability to install a Windows based OS, but I can live with that... for now
I have a few games on my list already:
Orange Box - have for PC, but want a 'portable' version (more portable than a PC tower, heh)
Drake's Fortune - looks adventure-y
Ratchet and Clank
Burnout Paradise - haven't played a good racing game in a few years
Rock Band - probably the first game I'll be buying
UT3 - possibly buy this; never been a big fan of the Unreal series though (Quake for me)
Army of Two - if the gameplay is good, I'll definitely be buying it this week
I'm just listing games that are currently out; I have a bunch more on my buy/check-out list when released. The only big disappointment I have, is that Left 4 Dead hasn't been announced yet for the PS3. I'd rather buy it on the PS3 now that I know I can use a mouse, as opposed to buying it for my PC.
