    That is the question

    will the console be upgraded soon ? if so should i wait ?
    will the blu ray format survive ?

    im thinking about taking the ps2 down and trading it and some games in on a ps3 for Christmas, but there seems to be a lot of uncertainty across many areas in relation to the ps3

    xbox 360 is out, cause i dont like it or the feel of the controllers, never have

    when is this online virtual world supposed to come out

    i can come up with the bananas by Christmas to get one, just not sure if i should yet or if i should wait.

    and whats the most popular ps3 forum ? cause theres heaps :yesnod:

    It's already been recently updated so it will be a while before the next PS3 update. They now have the 80gb version of the console. The virtual world is called Home, and so far, it looks like it could be a success, but it will cost money. Some games that you'd want to get for the PS3:

    Resistance: Fall of Man
    Motorstorm

    A good PS3 forum would be PS3Chat or PS3Network.

    They have launched 3 different PS3 versions in less than a year. Hold off until they pick a stable version to stick with. Those who wait are rewarded greatly.

    Welcome to WiiChat. Like FR mentioned above, there was recently an update, so you should be fine for the next few months or so. Enjoy your stay here and your future PS3. :)

    Well, right now the only game I really like for the PS3 is resistance, other games are just ok, but I pop resistance in every night and it keeps me entertained. I just wish it were 2 player online like gears of war. Alot of great titles coming to the PS3 though, So I think you should definitely think about PS3 this holiday season

    Blu-ray as a format will definitely survive but I'd say wait on the PS3 until all the developmental kinks of whatevers going to happen with PSN and online home are worked out. Then, you'll know your getting your true moneys worth.

    ps3fourms.com

    and as for the update, it should be around beggining of september and it will also release with HOME (the online community)

    as for games

    warhawk (FTW ^^)
    heavenly sword (almost out but good reviews from places)
    haze (this year ps3 exclusive ow, xbox version got cancelled)
    killzone 2 (the graphics just got more awesome)
    im to lazy to post more

    oh and dont trust PSM magazine, the editer for psm is a xbox lover, he sent a hate mail to sony, which sony released to the public =P

    If you want a $600 PS3, odds are you know the definition of patience. It takes time to save up that kind of cash for entertainment. Unless you're rich/uppermiddleclass. You lucky SOB.

    and have it blow up?


    i just got the ps3 yesterday. and my reaction so far is that it's great. maybe the fact that i got it for $400 is part of that, but still. i love it.

    i only have oblivion, but warhawk will join my library soon.

    If you do get a ps3, you better have it locked up or something.

    My cousin had his stolen about a month+ ago, what's worse is it was most likely by one of our cousins (go figure :mad5: ) So you can't trust anyone ._.

    HD DVD is not dead. In fact last week, Universal and Dreamworks signed exclusive 18 month deal with HD DVD. transformers, shrek 3 and transformers will only be available on HD DVD. The heads of Universal and Dreamworks feel that consumers will side with price if they choose a new video format. So for the near future at least, Blu ray has not won.

    In fact, if it were not for the PS3, HD DVD has sold more stand alone players than Blu ray

    You must be on crack, Harry Potter has just been giving a release date on Blu-Ray, along with a a box set of 1-5 of all the Harry Potters. As for Transformers, they've hardly made any impact at all on Blu-Ray sales, that and Heroes scratched the Blu-Ray sales, nothing more. Paramount has cost themselves millions by not putting Transformers on Blu-ray and im sure their regretting it now. That said, im pretty gutted i can't get Transformers and Heroes season 1 on Blu-Ray, il make due with an upscaled Dvd version, Hd-dvd is just digging its grave at the moment, 1 shovel of dirt every day.

    Oh, and dont double post, thats rule breaking.
