Dude, they look tight, but I never got one.

In my opinion, the best PS commercials were the "Ratchet and Clank" ones.

One of the best IMO was the "Gravity Bomb" one.
You can see it here.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkuZlxJw34Y


Not sure how to post the direct file here, but maybe thats for the best anyhow. :D


If you weren't expecting it, and the sound was up a bit, it was a real treat the first time.
I was like WTF??? :wtf:

I got my PS3 originally because it was the first to have a second generation Blu-Ray player--at least, that's what I told the wife! Ten games later, I absolutely love it! I got the mac-daddy version, the one with the 80 gig hard drive that allows you to play all PS1 and PS2 games. Guitar Hero III kicks ass!

I have several female friends that I bring out with me on the weekends, and one has mentioned the same damn thing.

She is a decent girl,(although taken), and really not this gaming type. She says the "Guitar Hero" rules the f@%king world.


She doesn't look like the type, but its funny when she talks about her and her fiancee playing it.

I've been thinking about getting a PS3, but I have a HD DVD player. I keep telling myself that when I go Blu-Ray, it will be with a PS3. But a couple of guys I know that own a Game Stop store claim the PS3 is going nowhere because no one is developing games for it (compared to the Wii and the 360). I don't necessarily believe them. To me the PS3 seems, technically, the game machine that I want (Hi-Def is a must). I want the PS3 for gaming anyway, I just don't know if I want my kids playing PS3 games and tying up my big screen all the time.

My son has Guitar Hero 3 for the PS2 and it is a lot of fun!

If I bought in now, there would be nothing left for Christmas. Besides, I spoil her enough as it is. Even if I get it for her, I won't get to play it until she falls asleep.

It actually could be a lot worse. She could be a fan of The Bachelor.

My cousin got PS3 for Christmas, but we didn't set it up at all. However, my brother, who has XBox360, got 'Rock Band', and man is that addicting. I never played Guitar Hero, but if you guys enjoy that, you'd love this too. It's not just the guitar, you add in a mic for a singer and a drum set too. That shite was so awesome!! I wish I didn't have to leave! I'm heading back in to Brooklyn for my birthday, so I'm gettin' me some Rock Band sessions in before the Giants-Patriots game (and some drinkin').

Sounds like he used and abused that system. I've had a PS2 since it was released and never got a blue screen or error message. It may have locked up once or twice, but never an error.

I've finally got a PS3 and its under the tree. I bought it for my son with the terms that I may use it for Blu-Ray, Netflix, streaming...I am looking forward to playing games on it as well.

The thing appears to be a Swiss Army knife. I bought the 250GB Slim model. Bought the new Ratchet and Clank, Madden 2010 and Bioshock (a classic from what I've been told). Should be fun hooked up to the home theater.

I'm probably going to be getting a PS3 in the next week myself, I already have a XBOX 360 but I sure as hell wont refuse a PS3. The good thing about XBOX360 is you can stream the netflix instantly....which with the PS3 you have to send away for a Netflix/PS3 compatible disc...which basically means you have to use it like its just another video game, putting the disc in every time you want netflix, where as xbox you just turn it on play.

I am looking forward to trying out blu-ray for the first time though.

Netflix - copy the exe to the hard drive and that whole disc swap thing goes away. Same can be said for most PS3 games. ;)
