Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Right, been hammering GT5 the last couple of days:


Pro's:

Cool new courses (my favourite being the CapeRing or whatever its called.......the one with the multi-storey carpark loop thingy)

Nice to be able to switch cars in the garage and also see what you can and cannot use for each race.




Con's:

Cannot get cockpit view on alot of cars.......lame.

Even when you do get cockpit view......its sh*t.

Tunning car section

While racing, they display alot of useless info.....

B-Spec Drivers are sh*t until about lvl-15

Most b-spec races are twice the amount of laps as a-spec.......lame

The driving line is crap and non-responsive, and just shows eith red or blue, and sometimes pink-ish. Did none of the developers play NFS1??? the driving line constantly changes green/yellow/red and responds perfectly in time with your driving to help you achieve maximum speed potential.

Menu navigation is so long winded.

Hitting other cars has hardly any effect on them. But when they hit you.......its spin out time

would of liked the option to have R2 as accelation instead of X, and like-wize L2 for brakes.........or at least the option to customize.





Overall, considering it took 5+ years to make, its a bit waste.......

NFS 1 is still the best driving game imo.

NFS 2 is the best for cockpit view.



I did manage to get a very hard trophy.....'Human stopclock'.

cheers

It's more of a guide in Gran turismo, to teach the racing line, you're supposed to work out how to get the best lap times yourself.

B-spec is a bit rubbish though, and the menu navigation is crap as well.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Of the free games in the Welcome back package can anyone tell me if Dead Nation is a better game (for whatever reasons) than Infamous.
I can't find any reviews of Dead Nation on Amazon so I guess it's a download only game.
Any tips would be appreciated.

Cheers,
HB2

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Hmm, can't seem to get access to the free games reward. I can navigate to the option, but can't select it. Is it an either/or option? I went to get one of them, had to dl something else, then was just clicking and got the 30 day free PSN plus option. Am I now buggered for the free games?

I had the same problem, this worked for me:

1. On your PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable navigate to the PlayStation Network icon on the XMB
2. Log into your PlayStation Network account and choose Account Management > Transaction Management > Services List
3. Choose “PlayStation Network Promotions” from the list of services displayed
4. Select either “PS3 Free Games” or “PSP Free Games” and then choose “Select Content”

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Alert, rant below.

Why on earth does it take forever to install demos on the PS3 ?
On the 360 its instant. Download and Play.

But on the PS3, first download. Then install (which takes longer than the download itself). And by the time its done, I have already lost interest.

Is it like this or am I missing something here ?

Okay, rant over.

So, nice weather huh ?

best thing to do is go to the store, choose like 10-15 demos and start downloading. then choose 'download in background'. exit the store and go to turn the system off. it will give you an option to 'finish downloading and install before turning off'. choose that, plug in your controller for charging and just leave it and go to bed.





I downloaded the new maps for BO. I am on lvl14 so i have crap guns and no 'pro' perks. I got rapped for about 2 hours. I need to learn these maps. So far Hotel is my fav.......the lifts are funny.

Normally, the time when I want to play something else is when I go looking into the store.
Except in this case, I cannot play it right then...I have to wait and be patient, which I'm afraid is not one of my strong points.
