I imagine there's a lot of truth in that you know. The 360 version might not look as good in places (hopefully thats not the case though) but the online will be better and as this game is mostly online focused, thats going to be a major selling point.

Can't wait for this one personally.

I've played the Ps3 numerous times online and I dont find anything that different than the 360 apart from the in-game XBM, which the PS3 is too getting in a few weeks!

Lack of chat due to headset not coming with the console, can't invite people to games from your friends list etc...

Was at my local Wal-Mart a few minutes ago and they have 40gb PS3 for 399.us, and you get a 100.00 dollar gift card with purchase. Also they have 100 free gift cards with a purchase of any Blu Ray player.

Be nice if they had the 80gb Metal Gear bundle for 499. with a free 100 dollar gift card, I asked the lady at the front counter if they were going to offer it, and she told me doesn't think they will carry that SKU.

It's all about the achievements Sam. Plus all my friends have a 360 and I think that the 360 pad will be more suited to UT3 than the PS3 is.... I know you can use a keyboard and mouse for the PS3 version, but I don't have a keyboard and mouse in my front room. Don't want to either at least until I have my HTPC sorted out.

Dont wanna make a topic about this so I'll put it here. I'm in a big dillema here. I will probably have enough money for a Ps3 come August, but dunno whether or not to buy it. The only exclusives interesting me are Resistance 2 and Motorstorm 2. I did buy a Wii 2 weeks ago and the 360 is happily keeping me fulfilled. So should I waste the money on a PS3 or not???

^^^ Well if your into Metal Gear then yes I would buy it just for that, also if you are wanting to get into Blu-ray then the PS3 is the way to go.

But the thing is I hate MGS 4. Blur-ray might be the only factor as to why I might buy a PS3.

Never heard of 'Blur-ray'

Blu-Ray though is the shit. If you ever want to get into Hi-Def, then the PS3 is the way to go where films are concerned on Blu-Ray. Although if you are wanting to get into the films only (ie not interested in games so much) then you might want to have a look at a standalone player which I have seen some for 199-250.

At the end of the day if your going for it for Blu-Ray, your getting a player and a games console thrown in for nothing !

I just don't get it, how can exclusives like Uncharted, Ratchet, MGS and Little Big Planet not interested you? Plus it's a Blu Ray player. PS3 is an awsome purchase, you're foolish to even question it.

Even if you just use the PS3 as a Blu Ray player, it's worth the coin. Just got done watching Rambo, and it totally rocks on Blu Ray visually and the sound is just fantastic. It makes regular dvds look better too if you have a nice HD screen.
The games other than Haze ( I said that one for Bax, so I can go back up that cool ladder thingie.) are pretty good. Ratchet, Unreal, GT5 Prologue, COD4, Warhawk, Motorstorm are favs.

Had mine for over a year now, no regrets at all other than I wish I would of bought it sooner.

You went back up the cool ladder for a second, until you forgot to mention Uncharted, and therefore you fell back down a few steps.

You really need to stop asking us about getting a PS3. You've played one round your friends, you know what the games and Blu Rays are like, you should be able to make the decision yourself now.

Why would you buy one for COD4 when you probably already own it for the 360?

I have one excuse actually... I'm looking for a new job at the moment, so I'm trying to be a bit careful with what I'm spending money on.

Good find though Wild Dog ! If I have some money left at the end of the month, then I'll dip into the funds and buy it.

On the Guitar Hero Aerosmith, Target an Best Buy and giving free Aerosmith Greatest hits CD with either the game or bundle, and CircuitCity is giving out free guitar straps with purchase of either the game or bundle purchase.

I like Aerosmith, I picked this up for the PS3, my first GH game for PS3, and its the same as the Xbox version minus achieves. Was wondering if this game will have the trophys when the update comes out soon.

If anyone else gets this on PS3 drop a line and we'll do some co-op.

I tried out Guitar Hero 3 on the 360 and was hooked by it almost immediately, but the game was so damn hard that it's put me right off of any of the other games in the series now.

I sold the 360 version of it in the end. Saved me smashing it in some sort of semi-rock tribute type thing when I get too frustrated at not beating the first 'boss' again !

Tell me about it. Seems like I've been playing the game for ages now, and I still suck at the Hard difficulty level. The jump between difficulty levels is ridiculous. Camo you fool, shoulda got it on the 360 then we could have co-oped it up!

Get the PS3 version Bax. GHIII in general is difficult, I think it causes arthritis, or at least bone deterioration.

Here is a pretty good deal for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.

When you buy Gran Turismo 5: Prologue you get a $15 Amazon gift card once you purchase the game, pretty good deal in my opinion. The offer ends on July 22nd, I don't know if this is for the UK people or not.
