    Why would I want to play a MMORPG. PAy monthly to play a game rofl. … Why would I want to play a MMORPG. PAy monthly to play a game rofl. Sorry, but you can't call it a games machine, when you have to use a clumsy analogue jostick to control it.



    Which you also have to do on the 360?:whistling:

    Exactly, I was just pointing out the PC is a much better gaming platform.



    Which needs to be updated every few months.

    The PS3 can accept keyboards/mice anyway.
    It's only a matter of time before we get an update allowing us to use them for gaming control.

    not palyed Devil May Cry. But yeah I love GTA with the keyboard and … not palyed Devil May Cry. But yeah I love GTA with the keyboard and mouse. Vice City and San Andreas. And yes I tried it on a PS2 and on a PC with a microsoft control pad, both were awful with controllers, you coudn't aim accurately, and when you could it was slow to respond.


    I used to argue the same about PC gaming being superior to consoles.....

    until I took the plunge and bought a ps3. No more having to upgrade everything every year so cheaper in the long run.

    Would never go back to a pc for gaming again. Only takes a short while to master aiming with the stick too.

    Not many PC's have a 50" screen either and there's something rather nice about crashing out on the sofa having a game of fifa/cod4 :thumbsup:

    A PC isnt exactly fun when all your mates come around either!

    Also, theres a patch that needs to be installed [i know, a patch before its even released right??]
    Recommended you install it as soon as it downloads because it will take the **** to install on monday, especially when you're losing out on quality gaming time!

    quicker if i stopped utorrent lol

    Already here?! Quick question, I haven't played MGS3, should I play that before the beta? Thanks

    Downloading the update now. You can choose between Torrent or HTTP; it recommended torrent so I picked that, went incredibly slow and now it saying a network error occurred! I think I'm picking HTTP on a restart.

    on the plus side, this is on my xmb now: tinyurl.com/55ygra

    Hang on, there's torrent on PS3?

    Anyone else having trouble with the update? Both via HTTP and torrent?

    Im still trying to get the patch..

    Me too. I wonder what the traffic will be like early morning to try again?

    Has anyone had any luck with the patch ?
    I've tried to download it but the progress bar never moves off 0% .

    Yep keep trying and trying, no luck at all. I think this is Sony faffing us over!

    Mines going for via the torrent download. However, with Virgin screwing us all over this bandwidth throttle, it's gonna take a while.
