Ok, set my 60gb US jobby up and all is well, after a bit of messing around yesterday and not being able to sign up due to the servers being overloaded all is well now. I like the Sony store stuff, not gonna do much with the backward compatibility stuff, just PS3 games and BR movies. I have NFS Carbon and in all honesty its pants, only got it as it came with the package I bought, good for a few mins fun though, nothing special. I downloaded GTHD demo and thought it was complete pants, although to be fair GT has never been my thing, i'll stick with PGR3 for my fill of this stuff. Motorstorm demo, WOW. How good is this, gonna grab the full game asap, anyone know when its out in US, dont fancy a JAP copy. RFOM, not bad, played it once before quickly but in all honesty after playing GOW alot recently then this aint much different. F1 demo, loved it, for some reason this just agrees with me, I liked the handling and the overall way the game plays, nice. As for the hardware itself, bit bigger than I thought it would be, although very very good looking, its not silent and anyone that says it is are lying, its silent until the fans come on and then it still quiter than my 360. I'm not one for moaning about noise anyway, I just turn up the 5.1 !!! I like the layout on the dashboard, very easy and very configurable in terms of audio and display etc. I have mine set for 480p/720p/1080i and it displays 1080i in the dash but most games display at 720p, is this right? not that it matters a great deal. I'm gonna try and install Linux at some point after Chrimbo, see if I can play with some emulators etc. I got Talladega Nights BR with it and tbh its the first BR ive seen running and I thought it was very poor, ive been spoiled with HDDVD on my 360 for a few weeks now and they just seem sharper and more vibrant, maybe TN is just a poor transfer. So, very happy with my Chrimbo pressie (even though I should have got it tomorrow!! ), cant wait for more good games.
