Farewell Xbox... PS3 ordered!

Just placed my order for a new 160GB PS3. Going to trade in the xbox to the local game store and pick up COD Black Ops and Gran Turismo 5. Should be the only two games I need for a long time.

I am tired of paying $50 a year for online play. Also most of my friends are now on the PS network. The xbox is too damn loud too. Thing sounds like it's going to vibrate off my shelf when it's running.

So, if anyone is interested my User Name is going to be the same as my name here if it is available.

Looking forward to it! Hopefully I will have it by Friday!

Hahaha jist kidding man. I personally love the feel of the xbox controller and iys just what im used to.

I also just got the new 250gb xbox. But hey, if you have more friends on ps3. Go for it. Playing with friends is the only way i can play black ops now.

I do prefer the xbox controller as well. But the cons are outweighing the benefits right now.

I really am not a fan of Microsoft trying to nickel and dime their users for every little thing from online play to accessories for their system that it should have came with.

This is true... However for that one month of patience from ps3 users, they get the maps for free. At least I think so.

You need to get the new 360 video game play is so much better on the xbox, I own both and the xbox is better to me, it does suck that you have to pay for online play though. PS3 online market is way better

I love my PS3. Its a great console. The only thing that blew me away when I bought it was the lack of Hi-Def cables. It only comes with the crappy RCA cables so you have to go and buy the component or HDMI cables. The component ones are made by Sony, but the HDMI's you can get anywhere. The HDMI's are a lot cheaper especially if you get them online.

I have my xbox connected via an HDMI cable, so I'll just use that for my ps3.

Expected delivery date is tomorrow! Pretty stoked about it. As soon as I get it I am going to go trade in my 360 and see what kind of deals they will work out for games and what not.

As soon as I get my PSN account all lined up I'll post up in here and get some of your gamertags!

You also need Uncharted 2 and Little Big Planet, then you'll be set for awhile! PS3 is the bomb-diggy (own both consoles, but the PS3 all around is way better IMO).

Oh, I guess they must have done that with the new ones then. I've had mine for a while. But my parents got one recently and it only had the RCA's. I guess it doesn't really matter since he already has HDMI though.

Anyways, some must play games that are PS3 only are:
- Uncharted 1 & 2
- Metal Gear Solid 4

mines about a couple years old already (fat ps3).
But now that i think about it, it might have been because it was the MGS4 bundle that included it.

I cant wait for SSD prices to go down. These loading times for both cod and gt5 are rough.

My PS3 collects dust... The 360 has a much more fun set up for me. PS3 has a few great games but Xbox outclasses it.

Funny thing- my Xbox, after installing the game, is quieter than my PS3 running GT5.

Question

I bought a bluetooth earpiece. Do I have to pair it to the console? I haven't tried it yet.

SCREW MICROSOFT AND THEIR 360!

I had a 360 recently and it had 3 hardware issues. The last time they couldn't repair it and sent me a refurbished unit as a replacement which came with a 90 day warranty. 10 days after that 90 day warranty it was acting funny. It would just turn off shortly after turning it on and made some crazy noises. So I called them and they diagnosed it as a disc drive issue which I would have to pay $100 to get it fixed and it was a 100 day old refurbished unit, 10 days out of warranty. Come on what the hell kind of BS customer service was that? I didn't go through with it. I wrote to Microsoft consumer affairs and no one got back to me.

So I threw the crap away and bought a 320GB PS3 with black ops. NEVER going back to Microsoft and their pitiful hardware issues. Yea people say "oh well Microsoft will repair it under warranty". Maybe, but do you constantly want to go through 2 weeks of no playing? I've had to send my XBOX to them 3x and there's just no excuse for that.

Is there any way to copy a game to my PS3 hard drive in order to cut down loading times? GT5 is horrible! haha

Well GT5 asked me to save the game. SO I figured out the answer to my question.

But now it has stalled trying to save twice and I've had to restart my system. Kind of pissing me off. wtf

there is a way but you risk getting banned off PSN lol

look up PS3 key jailbreak...

I almost got one before they banned the 1st import batch from Australia a few months back but after hearing of people getting their PS3's locked out by Sony (even after resetting) i decided to tough out the loading times...

im telling you, solid state...
Just a lil while longer before they become "somewhat" more reasonably priced.

It's all good. Got it figured out. The game actually prompted me to save about 10GBs worth of info to my HD. There was an error the first time around and it didn't copy which is why my loading times were so bad. It runs much quicker now.

I am pretty much hooked on Gran Turismo. I'd say I put in a solid 6 hours yesterday. lol

The Nascar section SUCKS though. I hate it.

A quick tip for the NASCAR races, turn the ABS setting to zero. If it's even at 1 it slows the car down for some reason, even if you never touch the brake and have the accelerator to the floor. It's weird.

Add me on PSN tofadeisastart. Ill show you how its done in Black ops.
It would be impossible to jailbreak a new PS3, IT requires an older firmware, Sony combats copying games with mandatory firmware updates on newer games to play them.

the people making the key have been hiring devs to constantly alter the exploit regardless of firmwares updates. You run a higher chance of them blocking your PS3 from psn if the unit sends back one of a handful of "red flag" error codes which lets sony know you're up to no good lol.
Still possible... just not worth the risk.
