c) why can i see the backup but cant make it go on my new ps3?

what i did then was to connect the 2two systems via an ethernet cable. it always says the two stations are not connected, no ethernet connection.

a) do i need to have a special ethernet cable? b) how else can i transfer my data?

thx!
Connect the ethernet cable with both PS3s switched on, this is opposite to what the instructions say, but it works.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

My loving wife gave me a PS3 320GB for my birthday (more the fool her ), it came with Uncharted 2 and Ratchet & Klank, but what else is worth playing? Looking for some decent shooters, but already got MW2 and Black Ops on the PC, what about the new MoH? Is GT5 going to be worth it and any thoughts on FIFA 11?
Cheers,
Paddy

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

If you're into sim racers, GT5 looks like it's going to be the ultimate one. It even has a track creator. And FIFA 11 is awesome.

Also, play Uncharted 1 before you play Uncharted 2. It makes the second one even better, but they have to be played in order. And can be found used for mere pennies now: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-lis...condition=used

It's always too bad when people start the Uncharted series with the second one, because it's hard to go back to the first one, and you're missing out on a great game.

Too late, already halfway through Uncharted 2. It's OK, but I'm not a huge fan of adventure-type games. I have a problem loading it at the moment, getting a spinning dagger and think it might be update related . Thanks for the heads up on GT and FIFA though, will deffo consider them.

The single campaign of MoH is EXTREMELY short!! I was very disappointed and I traded it as soon as I finished...

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Black Ops: A little Different, but I enjoy it. The surprising thing is the quality decline in Graphics on Multiplayer. I mean the Auto turret does not even spin when firing!

But it has one very redeeming feature. the Zombies! Got to level 16 solo so far, its damn addictive!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Had flu last week and completed one ending of Fallout New Vegas. It's got some amazingly annoying bugs, my companions dissapeared somewhere, yet characters kept referring to them and I couldn't recruit new ones. It freezes regularly, requiring a hard reset. Despite these annoyances, the game was still great, will prob play it through again, taking some different approaches.

Started playing God of War III, the graphics are incredible, it's also incredibly brutal and gory in places, not one for kids I guess. It's got annoying sequences requiring you to tap the right buttons in time, sometimes it's not too clear what the hell you should be doing as there's so much going on you don't have time to read the hints, which only flash up briefly and never return. It gets incredibly frustrating at times, but I still keep going back for more.

What about Multiplayer, did you try it?
I'm a little wary about heading into the whole PS3 MP scene, I'm barely proficient using a mouse and keyboard and my experience of trying to aim with a controller in Uncharted 2 leaves a LOT to be desired, which would make me pure cannon fodder for experienced FPSers.

Edit: Oh yeah Black Ops is over 100 chuffs in ym local FNAC, looks like I'll be getting it from Play, if at all.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Doesn't anyone know a company that stocks the Fanatec Steering Wheel in Switzerland as I don't want to order from Germany and get hit with a massive import tax bill? Really want one to play GT5!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Uncharted 2 was ace. Have not played the first one though. Love the multi player mode takes a while to get proficient though.
