A thread for PS3 owners here 2011


Recommended Posts

Finally caved and got a PS3. Tried the move demo of Tumble as I heard that's good. It has to install ok.... 10 mins later.... there's an update? For a demo? Ok.... 15 mins later... PS3 firmware has to update?

Got it with Move starter pack, another wand, and sports champions for £265, can't wait to finally play!

edit: Now the update has to install, what the fuck!

You should check out Home.

Glad I bought this, now the updates are finished. The move just works so well, the 'constant calibrating' I've heard people moan about with sports champions is simply non-existent, it takes about 2 seconds to do (infinitely less annoying than the Wii equivalent of putting the remote on a flat surface). Table tennis is outstanding but I can see myself enjoying them all quite a lot.

Are there any more sports compilation games coming? Racket sports looks shit, and then there are loads of specialist stuff like Virtua Tennis and John Boring's Mind-Numbing Golf or whatever that was called.

Are there problems with PSN today? I keep getting an error when I try to sign in.

I've had problems for the past few days with media go and the psp. The problems have vanished on my main account, but I can't access my US or JP accounts via the PSP or media Go

I've not tried the ps3 as I need to keep the firmware low ;)

Just checked and I can't log-in to my profile on the web either, getting a timed out message.

EDIT: Solved, now its displaying this message.

PlayStation Network is not available as it is currently undergoing maintenance. We apologise for the inconvenience caused while we carry out these essential updates. In the meantime, you can continue to explore the world of PlayStation at eu.playstation.com, and keep an eye on the PlayStation Network bar at the top of the PC version of the site to find out when the service is back up and running.

I know, I know... :)

I always thought Konami's beat-em-ups were crap (apart from Crime Fighters/Vendetta).

They were never the most awesome of games, but as an experience with a whole bunch of mates (or even randoms) in the arcade, great days!

I think that's a bit wrong. See http://www.lovefilm.com/browse/film/watch-online/subscription/ - almost 4000 films free to subscribers, and many of them are superb. Sure, there's a lot of dross in there, but there is in the full film selection too (or on the flicks, or wherever).

The real problem is that the quality of the streams is dreadful, and that's not going to improve on PS3.

I'm trying the full version of LittleBigPlanet for the first time. All I can do is play a Story mode on my own. I thought you were supposed to be able to play co-op online, make your own levels and download others?

Co-op is totally seamless, just turn on another controller when you are in the pod and a new character will appear. All levels can be played co-op. As for making your own levels, you need to go to the "moon" to be able to do that.

All sorts of other options have appeared after doing a few levels. Really bad interface design there.

I'll rephrase:

A few months ago when I looked, most of the films were crappy b movies with the occasional film that is probably good but just not my taste. Or I'd prefer to rent the BD.

It could well be that the selection on the player was limited or an early range. Milage will probably vary.

Really bad interface design there.

LBP doesn't "do" bad interface design. The whole system is geared towards making it accessible to all

So...once I buy my PS3, how long will it take, roughly, until I can actually play the damn thing? I didn't know about all this update and installation malarky!

If it's a game that doesn't require installation, then you can be playing immediately.

If you choose to update the game or the system, then longer. But that's your choice.

You can usually play all games immediately... if you are not connected to the internet (I think).

Really? God. I used my girlfriend's Netflix account before it blocked non-US IPs, and it was amazing. It streamed 720p pretty well. Why can't we get Netflix?

I hope the indie film service (I keep forgetting the name) hasn't been canned.
