    Hi Folk,

    Just got into the Network thing last night on the PS.
    So forgive me when I ask what might be a daft question.

    Can i only play an online game ... of the disc I have in the machine?
    Or can I visit some Lobby and pick and chose which game i could join in on?

    Get my drift??
    cheers in advance guys..

    Load up the game you want to play and there are usually options in the games own menu for "single player" and "multiplayer" (sometimes may say something like "play online" instead)

    So choose multiplayer if you want to play against others online

    At the moment you can only play an online game of whatever you have loaded up ie the disc in the machine or something you have bought off the PS Store like Warhawk.

    As i understand it this will change when Home come out - then you will be able to meet up with others and decide what game you want to play and all jump into it together - assuming of course you all have the disc/downloaded game.

    Also in Home there will be old style arcade games (not sure if there is any online element to them) or games such as pool and 10 tin bowling which i believe you will play against other people online in Home.

    Cheers Derek,

    Thats what I wanted to know. Have been online again tonight playing Sega rally, which I got witht the PS. Good game.

    Are the other people that drop in on the games from UK only, I was wondering or do people from all over the world play?
    And does anyone use the chat thing whilst playing or in the mid of playing....

    Questions, questions, questions....

    Cheers

    Not sure about Sega rally - don't have it. But many of the games use worldwide servers.

    On the chat front some people do but certainly seems less than on Xbox live at the moment
