Get it. Now.

I thought everything about Rainbow Six 2 was really good, even the single player, it just wasn't as epic as the first.

Dare I also recommend Project Sylpheed for space flight sim enthusiasts? <_<

I got it July of '07 and hadn't really played it until a couple of days ago. When I did start playing I grew to really enjoy it. Good plot, likable characters (for the most part), vast vast arsenal of weapons, and good art design and graphics.

Blimey, I can get a new 360 off eBay for £160/$320. I think that'll be a present to myself after exams :)

HALO 3.

I cannot stress that fact enough. Call of Duty 4 is good, but you MUST get Halo 3.

Well, from what I've heard it's pretty good. Haven't played it myself.

GET HALO 3. GET HEROIC MAP PACK. GET LEGENDARY MAP PACK.

You get a single player story mode that feels like a complete afterthought and is beaten by most of the recent Tom Clancy titles (GRAW 2 for example), and a multiplayer matchmaking system that pits you up with anyone...and I mean anyone...

"Anyone" may not sound like a bad thing at first, but if you factor in that you have to rank up and unlock all the other weapons and perks...you won't find it all that fun when you start a match and find yourself against a whole team of Lvl. 50+ players with a mix of Barrett .50 cal sniper rifles that can shoot through just about any wall and M249 machine guns with near sniper accuracy. On top of that, these high ranked players get the option of adding camo to not only themselves, but their weapons as well making them near impossible to spot.

Aside from that, the rampant camping, spawn killing, and teammates that never have mics it's not all that bad. :P

Ouch. I thought that Halo 3's social playlist was brutal. My friend and I joined a random game and ended up on a team of four privates vs a Brigadier, two Commanders, and three Gunnery Sergeants, whereas he was a guest on my Xbox and I was merely a Gunnery Sergeant.

It didn't end well. :P

Hooray.

My frakking 360 frakking died again. Damn you and your shitty hardware MS. Damn you.

Good news exists that the system was still under extended warranty and the repair / shipping costs are free.

Still...damn you MS. :|

Ah. I have a question for anyone who has it. It dawned on me while I was playing Vice City:

Mine's collecting dust due to the piss poor selection of PS3 exclusive titles out.

The epic failure of Haze didn't help things either. :?



And Ams...yes...yes you can swim now.

I've been playing my PS2 games on it while I save up for GTA-IV. The lack of titles doesn't really bother me, because with the exception of a few bad eggs the games are usually awesome.

It bothers the hell out of me when I spend $400+ on a gaming system only to find that more than a year later there's only 4-5 games I've actually enjoyed on it. :|

I think the European PS3 marketing fits nicely, "The PS3 Blu-Ray Player...also plays video games!"

I would mind if I bought it now, being a poor student and all, but when I bought it 3 days after it came out for AU$1000, I had a disposable weekly income of about 1200 so I was stoked with Fight Night and couldn't care less that there are hardly any other titles.

I own maybe 8 games, 6 of them I enjoy, but its Bluray playing capabilities keep it at the forefront of this generation's consoles, in my opinion. Especially now that Bluray prices are slinking more towards the cost of a special edition DVD, they're getting way more affordable. I'll come right out and say it wasn't bought for the games (it was one of the first, which a friend of mine got in line and my dad bought off of him for a nice price for Christmas... he bought maybe 5 Blurays to start with and no games, so I had to go out and buy my own games. :p).

Heh, I will say it is a pretty decent Blu-Ray player...but I bought it for the same reason the other 2 Playstation systems were even made, the games. I hope you can understand my frustrations, I mean that's a lot of cash to throw out there...


Though since my Xbox broke, I have been getting some time in on Uncharted - Drake's Fortune. I was also able to snag one of those new DualShock 3 controllers, a great improvement over that cheap little featherweight the Sixaxis. It actually feels like a controller now.

So...I guess there was an upside to my system crapping out. :lol:

What is so good about Bluray? I haven't been keeping up with technology, so I am legitimately curious.

It has more storage space; 25, 50, and 200GB discs compared to 8.5GB DVDs.
Better possible resolution as well since it can display video up to 1080p...but really it's only a big thing if you have a TV capable of displaying high definition video. Otherwise it'll look no different than a plain old DVD.
