They officially lost me with the last delay. I got Forza 3 for the 360 soon after.

As far as driving games go, I enjoyed Race Driver :GRID on the 360. I have been a codemasters fan ever since 1nsane on the PC, and GRID lives up to the legacy. And with the recent stuff that other companies are putting out, I am sticking with this one, for the time being.
I don't think PS3's come with a free X-Box yet do they?

Yeah...GTA4:Liberty City Stories is great. I like it a lot. Both Lost and the Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Better than the stock GTA4, IMHO.
I just bought GTA4 LCS on your recommendation, so if it's no good I'll send round Gay Tony to give you a good fisting

Thanks for the tip though (plus it got 4.5/5 on Amazon so it should be a safe bet), I hope there's a bit more fun than the original GTA4.

Heh, good one mate. I am sure you will have fun.

It is really more fun than the original GTA4, more things to do...better weapons...and more interesting characters and storyline...

And there are times when the storylines cross and you get to see events from the other person's perspective. Like one of the GTA4 missions for Elizabeta...where you get set up during a drug deal and Playboy X and Johnny Klebitz from the biker gang is with you...

Now you get to play from Johnny's perspective...

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Anyone play Final Fantasy 13?

I am on chapter 11 and am kind of loving this game. It's way too linear (though Chapter 11 opens up), but the story gets much better after a few hours and the new battle system, with Paradigm Shifts and all, is excellent. I like that you're rewarded for fast-paced battles. Random battles in previous got to be tedious, not so here.

Never really been interested in the FF series.


I am quite annoyed with play.com at the moment. I ordered Gay Tony on Monday 10th......they sent an email next day informing me that it has been sent. Now its a week later and still nothing.

Last time i ordered from them it was a tuesday (sent wednesday) and i got my game on saturday.

I might start getting my games from amazon.de instead.....more expensive but at least delivery is much quicker.

Its a shame i have already pre-ordered COD:Black Ops and ACII(full version).

Anyone else experiance this extreme delivery times with play.com???


cheers

I'd be careful ordering from Germany, I heard some games are censored, and you'd still be getting the german language versions. I always found Amazon.co.uk to be pretty good.

I just got TBOGT and The lost and the damned from the playstation store, no issues with language.

I would not say it was noticably loud........well at least its not an xbox, which acually sounds like the main runway at Heathrow (no joke).

Oh! Come on now. I know ps3 users are supposed to hate xbox, but its not so bad.
The disc-drive makes a sound sometimes while spinning, but even that doesn't really qualify as a "noise".

Can't we all just be gamers and get along ?

Not got the same model, but mine gets really hot and loud if it doesn't have enough ventilation, like if I shut the door of the cabinet it's in while it's on.

Well, it is loud enough to be fatiguing, I can not leave it idling when I take a break...
