    probably going to geta PS3 but wondered what the online part of it is like. I used to have 360 and that was awesome.

    Cheers

    It's not as polished or easy as the 360 but Resistance is an absolute treat on line.

    It's developer dependant so while some games are superb on line, others have no on line functionality at all.

    It's ok. Will be improved over time. Be even better if people didn't go on just to cheat their way to the best stats possible.

    Fustrating at times!
    I usually play against my mates on Saturday night when we play RFoM.
    We are all as bad as each other but it's annoying when someone who sits at home all day playing his PS3 whips our arses in about 5 minutes :D

    It's good but it can get better with time. The same can be said for Xbox Live. Resistance is probably one of the best console online games ever created and Motorstorm and Ridge Racer are mostly good online too.

    I think it's possible. It may at least equal it. It all depends on what Sony do with the whole "Home" thing.

    Well lets face it Daerve was a possibility in text only. It came from the way people say Dave round these parts, unfortunately I also had it as my live gamertag and got fed up of yanks calling me Daarrrrv and began to hate it.

    I changed my tag to Sticky Flinger ages ago, may as well have a change here too.:)

    This is my first experience of ONline gaming and its brilliant. I was very disappointed at first as i couldn't download the updates for RFOM but then found out it was because of my signal strength, moved the router problem sorted. I only have 1mb and there doesn't seem to be any problems so far. Really enjoying it at the moment.
