    ... and got a PS3.
    [​IMG]

    Traded in my old XBox 360, got a not bad price for it and then picked up a PS£ with Metal Gear Solid 4, Ratchet and Clank: Tool of Destruction and it was the choice of either Beowulf or Hitman.
    I took the path of least resistance.

    Still have to set it up and get my PSN ID sorted.

    Now everything under my TV will be black :D

    If you have an HDTV, get a good connector (HDMI can be had super cheap, even in the UK). Ratchet and Clank is really fun. Welcome to the party brother.

    Thanks.
    And I have a HDTV already (the model up from Twist which annoys him since I have 2 HDMI sockets :p ) Already got a HDMI cable for the PS3, so that will take one socket, upconverting DVD in the other and Elite on component.

    I will add once I set it up.
    Still need to get a mic for it as well.

    I might get one eventually. MGS4 is tempting. But the price has to come down some, and they need to ad backwards compatibility back in. I'm not giving up my 360 either.

    *plays Another One Bites the Dust*

    Eh..hope you enjoy it. Just not near enough to justify purchasing one myself right now. Maybe once GoW 3 is out, and we get some new info on Ueda's next project.

    Well, congrats. Though it'll be hard missing you on Xbox Live...I too have been having thoughts about getting a PS3, but only for Metal Gear Solid 4. I do know that the 40GB version doesn't have the PS2 compatibility, but can it play old Playstation 1 games and have it saved onto the hard drive? Or do I need that PS2 memory card adaptor thingy?

    Welcome to the club! I hear once you go black, you never go back... or something like that.

    Your system is gone again? Didn't you just get it back?

    Why do you need an upconverting DVD player when the PS3 will do it for you? And do it well. Just make sure you upgrade the firmware, set the upconverting to your desired setting, and you're good to go.

    I got the upconverting DVD player when I got my TV, though I have heard the PS3 does it just as well as a stand along system.
    However, the upconverting player I have is multi-region so it'll play the Region 1 DVD's I have.
    Firmware will be updated as soon as I get it plugged in (went to see Hulk today so not had time)

    Apparently people can't read posts well.
    Re-read my second post :p  :wink:
