    Unless you have CFW(Google it), ripping games to the HDD isn't an option.

    With regards to your AVR, I would visit AVForums for more info, but giving the details about your equipment will be beneficial if you're asking for help.

    as already mentioned .. but a reminder ... a must buy game is Battlefield Bad Company 2 ultimate edition as for my money its one of the best games around and there is a thriving community on here of regular gamers/clan who I am sure can answer some of the more technical set up quires you have, I have cut and pasted the link for ease of finding the thread.

    As for how I run my ps3 .. 50inch pioneer hd plasma, pioneer amp, and a set of turtle beach pz21 and the jobs a fish ..

    As for other games played on a regualr basis.. Killzone 3 , MAG ( even though my machine seems to hate it) but have a look in the Battlefield thread and come say hello and add your details to the psn id list, fanpages ( who is the font of all things Ps wise ) or fp will add your details in the thread..

    Surely you should remember how bad the wages are down here, Saturday overtime helps top them up.

    lol True, I don't get any overtime until the summer

    If your playing with friends and want to chat, I'd recommend a wired headset (depending how close to your screen you play).

    Solves problems of having to charge mid game and connection/ sound issues.

    He's an idiot. You have some good games there.
    Play them before spending money that you don't need to.

    You do need to get Heavy Rain though.

    It's one of the best games I've ever played, although I haven't finished it yet. Totally unlike any other game I have seen and the storyline is gripping.

    I am enjoying GT5 atm, Thanks

    Not got Crysis, and wouldn't touch Black Ops with a 40 foot pole.
    But GT5 is fantastic, A-Spec, B-Spec, remote races, wait till you get the Red Bull car.

    Really enjoying GT5 myself, its better than i thought after reading a few bad reviews.

    Yeah, menu navigation is a pain, and there are problems, but it's the deepest racing game available, you can lose hours and hours just doing the B-spec races. After the recent update you can now start remote races from your computer.

    Should of added you now, buddy.

    Was playing a bit of Crysis last night, graphics to make you weep. I'm sure the PC version looks better but console version still looks sublime.

    Finding Bulletstorm to be very enjoyable also.
