Tomb Raider was on PS1 and Sega Saturn as well, and I have it for the PS1.

Ratchet and Clank is good but I still like Insomniac's Spyro series. Besides, they practically have the same jokes. :blink:

I don't like the Spyro series.. I find them a bit childish to be honest. My brother has two of them and from what I've seen so far it's not my thing.

I plan to get Jade Empire SE for the PC someday.

I want a PS3 so I can play that New R&C game, I've seen the teaser trailer and I want to play it.

Background process. Has something to do with some activity going on somewhere. Sorting junkmail, I think. No value or interest. Doesn't do much except hog resource.

I've seen it as well, it looks good but I want to see more of it first. Aside from that I'm not sure I want to pay 600 euros for a console just so I can play two games (R&C and FFXIII). Or 300 in case my little brother wants to pay half.

There are other games I want you know, like Armored Core 4 and Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.

I don't even care if they are for 360 also, I want a PS3 cause I do.

Pah, you Sony fanbots and your George Foreman grill wannabes. :huh: Go back to mercs2.com. [/sarcasm]

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.
Razgriz intrerpretation

I got a PS3 on the release day


There's the problem.

Buying consoles on release day is nigh-on pointless. There's barely any games out for it, and those that are out have normally been rushed to meet the release date.
Makes alot more sense to at least wait for the console to build up a good base of games, if not wait for a price cut aswell.

I'm the have all the main competitors sort (PS1 and N64 - Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox - and now Wii and Xbox 360). Always preferred Ninty, but things seem a bit slow with the Wii at the moment so I'm off onto Xbox 360 for now (What the hell is the big deal about GoW by the way? It's so generic its laughable, the AI is utterly terrible and it takes stupid amounts of ammo to kill an enemy, who all appear to be made of concrete and don't feel the need to take cover or twitch when shot. That taking cover thing is cool for a while but all the bad things overcome that.).

Long live Halo 2 and BF2 online.

Halo 2? Once you've played it once, that's it.

And multiplayer's a joke. Just a race to the sword.

Halo 1 was, and is, the far superior game.

Halo 2 online is absolutely not just a race to the sword. The sword, unsurprisingly, is useless at range.
A race to the sword and the sniper maybe, but even then its not too hard to take someone out. One person doesn't mean alot in Team Slayer anyway.

Sticky grenades for the win.

And yeh, Halo 1 single player is far better. But no online.

I agree with Ash here, Halo 1 was far superior not only because thats the only one I have but also because of the reason he pointed out. :p

@ Verrückt
There are about 1-2 million Xbox 360's that damage discs. MS has acknowledged the problem but is not going to give refunds. That's what the newspaper this morning said.

meh, got a wii a month ago, still no uber games for it even though its been out here for 5 months soon. it will be nice once i get my hands on party and kart.

ps3? a biiig waste of money, even though i could have waited longer bying my wii, zelda TP was better than any of the release games for the ps3 imo, and it was probably the worst zelda game i've played. i won't even consider getting a ps3 before metal gear solid 4 comes out, and that should save me like 150euro.

I don't know why people don't just take my advice that I always give, and stop being such fools buying stuff on/close to release day.

No offence intended to Mig but when first read first post in this thread I couldn't help thinking "There's one born every minute..."

If everyone'd refrain from buying for a few months then they'd be FORCED to lower the price just to sell em. Same goes for brand-new games. I am not ever prepared to pay 35+ quid for a game (which is why I always get off play.com now - shit's cheaper, and I usually wait 6 months anyroad).

Besides, by then there might be some games out for the consoles... :mad2:

I got a Wii about a month before the PS3 & I got to agree with ya, Zelda:TP wasn't all that but is a hell of a lot better then any of the current PS3 games atm.

I also feel need to point out the initial cost of the PS3 when it came out in America. It will have been about $500 dollarsish.

Given that it's currently 2bucks to the pound (and was prolly 1.8something-1.9something back then), that's about £250something quid.


Am I the ONLY one who notices how fucked up that is? Like...is nobody else seeing how much we in Europe (and Britain in particular) are getting buttfucked? Especially given how much FASTER the USA got it...
