And it'll be obsolete in a year and a half.   ;)

I vastly prefer keyboard and mouse for FPS games.  Before Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 come out for the PS3 I'll probably end up investing in a Bluetooth keyboard & mouse.

Check out what you get if you buy the DELUXE Metal Gear Solid bundle...



Limited edition gun metal gray finish.  It makes me wish I didn't already own one.

That's the same photo I put up there 10 years ago, and I don't think it was all that new even back then.   ;)

My shame:  http://www.theusedcarfactory.com/

I designed that site EXACTLY like the guy wanted back in 1998.  They've made some changes (mostly for the worse), but it's still essentially just how I delivered it back then.  The facts that it hasn't changed at all and that he still keeps it updated at least prove he was happy with the results.

If you have an HDTV then the PS3 is a no-brainer.  Once you watch a movie on Blu-ray in 1080p, you'll never want to watch anything else.  And the games in HD are just stunning.

If you don't have an HDTV yet, then the PS3 is in a lot of ways wasted on your system.  The graphics are a lot nicer than the PS2 or Xbox, but you're only seeing about 25% of what it can do.

God of War 3 is slated for 2009.

This year's big exclusive titles are:

Metal Gear Solid 4
Killzone 2
Resistance 2
Little Big Planet
Final Fantasy XIII
SOCOM: Confrontation

There's a bunch more, including some racing titles I don't know all that well, but those are the biggies.

BTW, the first review of Grand Theft Auto IV has popped up.

The Wii is the king of kiddie games, no question there.  But my daughter (6 years old) has gotten a lot of play on the PS3 out of Lego Star Wars, Ratchet & Clank, Burnout, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

Uncharted is one of the best, if not the best game of this generation so far.  And Ratchet & Clank Future is the best game in a very strong series.  Those two games alone were worth the price of admission to me.  If you don't think there's anything worth playing, you must have a very narrow interpretation of what makes a good game.

Here you go, fence sitters:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0014WJ78E

When you consider you get $70 in games (MGS4 + PAIN), a Dualshock3 controller, and a high-end Blu-ray player, it's the bargain of the century!   ;)

BTW, PAIN is the best $10 game I've ever purchased.  I couldn't tell you how many hours I've wasted playing that thing.

I picked up Burnout: Paradise this week off eBay, and it's every bit as fun as it ever was.  The graphics are insane.  I'm still learning the map, but so far it's great.  And my daughter loves driving around and wrecking into stuff.

I've also been playing Stranglehold.  I'm not all that impressed by the graphics, and there are some bad framerate drops when things are destructing, but it's still an blast to play.

So does anybody else here even own a PS3?  Feels like I'm talking to myself.   ;)

I saw The Bank Job a couple weeks ago and was thoroughly impressed by the whole thing.  It was just a really solid piece of work.  And very smart.

Let's just hope that doesn't happen until after Chinese Democracy comes out... otherwise Axl will want to re-record the whole damn thing with the new line-up...   :P

Metal Gear Solid 4 already sold out in Japan!

That's almost 3 months before the game is even released!   ;D

The merger was just approved in the last day or so by the US government.
