thats your loss for the xbox 360. it has its problems i suppose but its a first class gaming machine and if it was a) quieter b) less prone to break down and c) have built in blu ray, it would be the obvious choice to my mind.

xbox live is a simply awesome platform for online gaming, and for downloading demos etc. the playstation version is good and slowly catching up, but whatever. as i own both i think im qualified to write my opinions without being flamed, hopefully! i actually find many of the games on the ps3 "tired rehashes".

may be worth pointing out that xbox live costs like chf 90 per year. playstation version is free. thats a good thing, but since many are aware of sonys ability to charge for the slightest thing, then its obviously a tacit admission that they are not yet up to speed compared to M$.


im sorry but i cant stand the controllers, and i have never liked the feel of the games.

Firstly my friend remove the double line spacing haha

You'll need it, HDMI is the way to go

Prologue is 6 tracks, 50+ cars and 3 classes (+ manafacturers races) pretty much the same as the previous format (talking off the top of my head here I can check later for you if you want specifics when I get in!)

Yes I expect a lot more tracks car's + damage! From rumours

Check www.threespeech.com for GT5 stuff

I have no idea if you can transfer but I have seen it discussed.

Be warned some tracks are amazingly difficult to gold, but I'm 90% through A class with all golds, in A+B+C and it took me maybe 1 days playtime. (Some of us just have the skills haha! I blame r/l driving and french motorways personally)

Getting all the cars is a completely different matter and will take a lot of time!

P.s the Eigerwand reverse is a biatch in a high powered car coming through the tunnel to slam on the brakes into the left hander. Timing is required and a lot of patience

Totally agree, im glad that i did not purchase a ps3, i borrowed a friends for a week with AC and was bored after 4 days.

Also he has various racing games, flying shootemups etc.... all below average...........im sure the games will come soon enough, but until then i wont be making a purchase.

I am still very happy with my ps2........Prince of Persia (sands of time) is just amazing!!! (same people that made AC)

The more i think about it though, the more i want to play AC!!!!!


Am i going mad???

It feels like it, I suggest 3rd ignoring advice on that corner with the handbrake tapped a couple of times, tends to slide. However some motors have a annoying habit of digging in when using the handbrake at speed just like a real car

Looks like a 5 year olds game (well it probably is) but i can promise you it will be the best gaming experiance you will ever have. I have been a serious gamer (monkey island style) for donkeys years, but this game blew me away!!!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

fair enough. i havent played the game much, i just remember that the "last" gt had a photo mode where when you paused a replay and took a photo, it would digitally touch up, sharpen, and do some little tricks to the image to make it look even better.

maybe gt5 does the same, or maybe im wrong.

Katamari is fun

Been playing GT5 on the PS3 and Condemned 2 on the 360 most recently but yesterday I grabbed the new Wii Mario Kart and all other games have now been put to one side
