..of course such cool services are avaliable in US only.

I think it is time we all chip in for our own exclusive EF VPN to US?
Hehe, apparently Netflix has an exclusivity deal with Microsoft, but they were able to find a loophole in the contract by making the access to Netflix on the PS3 be through a disc. I can't imagine Microsoft is very happy about this.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I downloaded the Operation Anchorage pack for Fallout 3 over the weekend, and the sodding thing doesn't work. I' walked around for 5 minutes, I walked around for an hour, it's not starting.

I checked the Bethesda website and they say you can't mix and match the regions for the DLC, I think I bought F3 from the UK, is that really a different region to the rest of Europe?

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Were there several similar download packages with different codes? Same as for COD you had to match the download with the code on the back of your DVD case of the original game.....
Maybe that's it... otherwise you may have to get the compilated version they sell in the stores nowadays.. you should be able to trade it maybe for the old one plus some bucks....

Weird, UK should be the same region. I've never heard of country-specific DLC before. Maybe with the language localizations they had no choice. I'd call or e-mail Bethesda.

Yep, but the download doesn't appear in my downloads screen on F3, I hadn't realised that was significant (although thinking about it now, it is.....)

Time to get hold of Bethesda, I'll let you know what happens.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

If I were to get a PS3, would it be worth going for the Slim or the older, chubbier model? Aesthetically the older one does look better, and it seems to offer more e.g. ability to install linux and backward compatibility with PS2 games. In addition I have a spare 2.5" 160GB SATA drive doing nothing, so I would definitely upgrade the standard 60/80GB drive.

You won't find a backwards compatible PS3 anymore. That was all phased out with the 60gig model back in early 2008. So that's the bad news. The newer older 80gig model still supports Linux though. Plus, if you have a 160gig harddrive, it's a no-brainer. Get the chubby one. It's going for around 350 CHF, check toppreise:

That's kind of a spoiler, but yeah. You have a choice to either participate in it or not, since you're a CIA agent undercover in a terrorist cell. You see glimpses of the mission in this trailer (awesome music by Hans Zimmer by the way):

Anyway, I'm gonna go to London next weekend, so I'm getting special HMV Prestige Edition: http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=219720

Woot.

The original 60GB model is backward compatible (I thought even with the first PS. I'll have to start mine up and put in a Ps game to make sure.), has the smart/flash/SD/CF card reader, and upgradable hard drive slot, and plays Blu-ray. The newer "slim" model is not backwards compatible, no Flash card slots, no hard drive expansion (I think), but does play Blue-ray,

If you just want to play PS3 games and Blue-rays, then the newer model would probably be the best bet, and cheaper for the most part. If you want any of the extras, then go with the original.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I don't have a PS3 (yet), but can any owners out there confirm whether its true that the latest firmware allows you to watch UK Freeview channels???
=Firmware update allows HD recording on Sony PS3=Posted by Khidr Suleman on Fri 6 Nov 2009
PS3 owners get an early Christmas present from Sony

Sony PS3 owners can rejoice; it’s now possible to watch and record channels in HD. The PlayTV add on and the newly released 1.21 firmware update is all that’s required to jump aboard the HD bandwagon.

The good news is that PS3 owners across Europe will be able to watch Freeview channels broadcast via DVB-T standard for free. Unfortunately that privilege will not extend to UK users as Freeview’s upcoming HD channels will be broadcast in the DVB-T2 standard.

However, fret not, PlayTV will still be able to bring joy into your life by upscaling the picture on channels to near-HD quality, helping justify that shiny new plasma screen in your living room. You can also record one channel while viewing another at the same time. Nice.

Further good news is that picture quality beamed to mobile phones will also be optimised for folks who can’t do without shows on the go. It’s undoubtedly the upscaling that we’re most excited about, though; HD Cheryl Cole on a Saturday night? Thank you, Sony.

edit: Doh, I completely misuderstood. I thought it was streamed over t'internet

I didn't think freeview was available outside of the UK. Will have to look into it.

Well Bethesda got back to regarding the DLC for Fallout 3, worth bearing in mind, here's the text of their email.

Quote:
Hello,

I believe you may have confirmed the issue. In general with the PS3 different region games and DLC do not work together.

You could try creating a new save(keep your current ones) and then get outside as quickly as possible. If the DLC were to work with your game then the 'alert' should appear almost immediately at this point.

If it doesn't then you would be best to consider speaking with Sony about possibly having your purchase 'swapped' to the UK DLC.
I think I've already tried their suggestion to get it to work, so I think it's time to get hold of Sony.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Get a FIFA 10... always fun battling ur mates on it..... the new version of slim line ps3 is a steal!!!! bloody sony people, i ended up shelling more for the rather humongous PS3 with lower GB...

Comparatively i think PS3 is still a great deal, with the blu ray embedded...
