    Ah yes, I'd completely forgotten about them! Thanks for the reminder bowser123.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    Where's the best place to get US eShop gift cards these days? Wanting to take advantage of a couple of USA deals that don't seem to be on the UK store.
  3. Thanks for the info AMC. With what you said plus more reading I have taken the plunge and just stuck a UK kettle plug into it ...... all absolutely fine! The step down transformer has gone back into retirement!
  4. That's what I thought when I looked at the sticker. I'm playing it safe for now with a step down, but some say there are multi-voltage PSU's (ie: 110v - 240v) in these original PS3s despite what the sticker says. Either way, I've had a fun afternoon installing all the "extras". PS1 / PS2 / PSP ..... here I come!
  5. Hi folks, I hope that somebody here could help me. I recently acquired a launch 60gb Japanese PS3 (model no. CECHA00). I'm currently using it with a step down transformer but would prefer to get rid of the step down & use a UK 3 pin plug with no step down transformer. I've read conflicting articles about simply plugging the machine into the UK mains using a UK lead with a Japanese PS3 in that some say it works & others say it doesn't. Obviously I don't want to blow this machine up by bypassing the step down transformer & plugging the machine directly into the wall with a 3-pin UK plug. The sticker on the back of the PS3 says "100V-3.8A 50/60hz". Can I plug this PS3 staright into the UK mains with a 3-pin plug? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Sea of Thieves - Pirates > Ninjas

    Same here, just getting the same message about not connecting and "Lavanderbeard"(??). I've just seen this tweet, that explains why we can't connect. In order to resolve the issues players are seeing with the servers, we will be temporarily suspending new players joining the game. We'll get everyone back in and playing as quickly as we can!

    Yep, I've been getting that for the last 20 minutes or so.

    Sea of Thieves - Pirates > Ninjas

    I have to admit that I'm not really feeling this at the moment. My experience so far is with two sessions. The first earlier today with a few "random players" who seemed to know what they were doing while I felt like a spare part fumbling around while not contributing anything to the session. As I hadn't played the beta tests I thought it was my lack of experience. So I then fired up the solo player game hoping to learn what I'm supposed to be doing. So far, I've managed to capture a couple of chickens but managed to sink the boat somehow while returning to sell said chickens. Maybe it's tiredness on my part but I'm just not feeling this at the moment. If anyone here is in the same boat (no pun intended!) and wants to play around with this with no pressure then feel free to add me. Xbox GT = shiffy uk

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    Thanks guys, that has sorted the issue. I must have previously played the rally expansion though as I already have some achievements for this DLC. I don't recall playing it on the 360 ..... oh well, no matter! It looks glorious with these One X enhancements.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    I know there's probably been a huge discussion on this elsewhere, but as Forza Horizon is "hot" again I thought I' ask here. Basically, can't get the "Horizon Rally" to work. It's downloaded (as part of a season pass) and installed on the Xbox One. Yet selecting the option in game presents me with the message "The Rally expansion will be available for download on December 18th". Has anyone else got or had this issue with the Rally DLC? If so, how did you get it to work?

    Your gaming resolutions 2018

    Like many here I aim to cull my spending on new games. I have enough of a backlog to see me through 2018 & probably well beyond that. It's very much a case of play what I've got & try not to get suckered into purchasing all that is "new & shiny"! I think my only expenditure will be & RDR2 which I've promised myself as a very late birthday present, and an XBLive subscription because I nearly always find there's something among the "freebies" that is of value to me that I haven't owned or played before.

    SNES Mini

    If anyone still has the patience with the Game website it's still worth persevering with. Personally, I managed to add 1 to my basket at what must have shortly after 6:00pm, then battled with the Game website that constantly gave error messages (constantly hitting F5) before I was finally successful with the order being completed & having received confirmation emails at about 10:20pm.

    Bioshock the Collection | Big Daddy 1,2,3

    Thanks for the opinions. I think I'll have a look in Cex tomorrow for the collection.

    Bioshock the Collection | Big Daddy 1,2,3

    Argh .... what to do! I had always intended to play Bioshock on the 360 but never got around to it. Then obviously the collection came out for Xbox One. I very nearly bought it, but didn't because folks said there were a few "issues". Now that the Xbox 360 versions are backwards compatible (and on sale on the Xbox store) I really don't know which way to go .... "Bioshock Collection" on XB One or the individual games on 360 via backwards compatibility. Has anybody played both versions recently? If so, which option would you go for and why?
