i'm in the process of buying one from yesasia.com - new members get $5 off and then through quidco too...works out to be around £31 and delivery is free because they import from japan to their warehouse (so you dont get hit with import tax), then from their warehouse they send onto you....

but one problem.....

my expected delivery date is around the 27th of Jan.... dunno why its taking so long...i ordered on the 3rd of Jan

I've got one but it doesn't rumble... Am I missing something? Does it need to be fully charged or something?
#5
Could a Mod move this to misc please?

Edit : It now rumbles on uncharted but still doesn't on Resistance or Motorstorm!?!?!
#6
yeah only some games are compatible with rumble, i think its only the newer games that have this feature i saw a list of all compatible games will try and find it for you.

List of "DUALSHOCK 3" supported game titles available if you look for it (scroll to bottom).

I believe you need to download a patch ("software update") to get "Resistance: Fall of Man" & "MotorStorm" to function as expected.

(Waiting on my "DUALSHOCK 3" to be delivered then I can assist further)

sussed it... my ps3 doesn't connect automatically to the net (it's set up this way on purpose) so doesn't pick up updates - you have to connect to a multiplayer game and it'll then prompt for the download... you then restart the console and voila...

Got one from yesasia.com! Excellent servce delivered within 2 days!!!! Funny thing is it was shipped from somewhere in the UK!! Not all games are compatible, i was told the rumble programme is getting written into all new PS3 games and the older ones require a patch. Works best on drakes fortune (best ps3 game at the moment!!!) Anyone know any new toys comeing to the PS3??

PLAYTV UNLOCKS FREE DIGITAL TV ON PLAYSTATION 3


Leipzig, 22 August 2007. At Games Convention today, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) announced the introduction of PlayTV, a combined TV tuner and Personal Video Recorder (PVR) for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™). PlayTV will be available in UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain early in 2008, with other PAL territories to follow in due course.

Designed to reinforce PS3’s rightful place in the Living Room at the heart of the home entertainment needs, the twin channel TV tuner peripheral and PVR software turns PS3 into a state of the art TV recorder, allowing users to watch, pause and record live TV. PlayTV will also record individual programmes or whole series1 to the PS3 hard drive for viewing later on the family TV, or for transferring to the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) for remote viewing outside of the home.

Operating on the widely available Digital Video Broadcasting – Terrestrial (DVB-T) format, PlayTV uses an incredibly quick and easy to use 7-day Electronic Programme Guide EPG2. that provides the navigation for programming the PVR features of PlayTV.

In line with PlayStation’s focus on advanced technology made easy, PlayTV provides a host of added value features seldom seen on anything but the highest cost standalone PVRs:

· PlayTV’s two TV tuners are High Definition ready and are able to view, record and play back High Definition signals in full HD1080P to fully complement PS3’s already impressive High Definition credentials.

· Unlike the electronic programme guides found on conventional satellite and cable services, PlayTV’s EPG is lightning fast, and simple to use with either PS3’s SIXAXIS™ wireless controller or the BD remote control to really enhance viewing pleasure.

· Intuitive controls, single button help features, tutorial videos and simple navigation make PlayTV a positive joy to use compared with the complexity of some standalone PVR models

· Seamless connectivity with PSP allows you to set recordings, watch Live TV and recorded TV programmes remotely on PSP via a Wi-Fi connection (using Remote Play feature). Alternatively, quickly transcode recorded TV shows for high quality viewing to PSP by USB cable for remote viewing away from the home.

· Optional on-screen graphical display provides a wealth of information about the status of PlayTV and provides quick access to programme information, stored TV programmes and the controls to pause or record live TV. PlayTV will also set the correct interface for either Standard Definition or High Definition displays, maximising the viewing experience.

· PlayTV will evolve with time, with great added value functionality being updated via PLAYSTATION®Network; a feature that sets it above all other set top boxes. PlayTV will never be out of date.

“The introduction of PlayTV really will extend the already broad entertainment credentials of PS3, and makes it an exceptionally attractive proposition for the whole family,” said David Reeves, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “PS3 already provides High Definition gaming, Blu-ray Disc movies, music, video, photo album, web browsing and PLAYSTATION Network support. With the introduction of PlayTV’s state of the art TV tuner and PVR functionality, PS3 is now the best choice of home entertainment hub for the whole family.

Have tried my "DUALSHOCK 3" with both "Resistance: Fall of Man" & "MotorStorm" now.

"MotorStorm" needed to download a (free) update (patch), whereas "Resistance..." worked straight off (but then I have updated this with two Map Packs since the original purchase).

PS. CD-WOW.com are selling both the black & the white "DUALSHOCK 3" for £35.99 delivered!
