Mine dispatched yesterday from amazon with an estimated delivery date of the 25th November.

I'm pretty certain it will come quicker

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Quick Update:

Backup Utility worked a charm, all saves and game data transferred between old and new PS3 perfectly. Is surprisingly quick to restore, but took about 2 hours to backup.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

A quick question for those of you making the HD transfer

My current PS3 drive is almost full (I think it's the 80gb). Is it possible to transfer all the data to a new internal HD without the use of a third HD to temporarily store the data?

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Cyrus, I believe it is possible with the use of an ethernet cable - look under

settings-->system settings-->data transfer utility

Not tried it, but i'm sure if you have two PS3s running, it'll work fine.

Ah.... I was hoping to just change the HD. I was pretty sure I needed an intermediary device of some sort. Always worth checking though.

Yeah, you'll need an intermediate drive if you want to transfer your demos, saved games, and such. Make sure it's formatted FAT32, pretty much all new drives are. I swapped my 80GB drive for a 160GB 7200rpm drive a while ago. I backed up all my stuff on an external hard drive, swapped drives on the PS3, and transferred everything back to the new one from the external drive.

Here's a tutorial: http://uk.gamespot.com/features/6176090/index.html

OMG, just seen the price for Quantum of Solace....EURO 11.37!!!!!!

http://www.play.com/Search.html?sear...urce=0&cur=258


Ordered

You had better be right monkeynut!!

cheers
SC


It arrived yesterday. It is quite good.........will defo get the new one once the price comes down.

Only bad thing i would say is that its too easy. I ploughed through half the game in one sitting.

Trophies will not be an issue.........except the online ones, they will take a while.

Will keep me busy till ACB and COD arrives.

cheers Monkeynutter

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Black Ops is great so far. I'm not an FPS expert, but I am enjoying the multiplayer mode. And yes there are people who are past level 50 already. Being a newbie I'm only on level 8, but I guess I spend less time on it than the average gamer.

BTW the current release is a bit buggy. The PS3 completely froze on at least three occasions. They need to release another software update soon.

I could only find English versions on the game on toppreise. In Italy and Ticino only the italian version is available in shops (I found out it's actually spanish and italian when I started the game from my english-set PS3, probably a southern european version of the game).

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Ah, glad I found the cult of PS3... About to head out and buy one today - Interdiscount deal looks good.

I'm supposed to be a grown up and I am ridiculously excited. Sigh.

Wheeee!

I think GT5 will be the first game I buy in Zurich!
I just wish I had the whole setup with the G25...
