    Sweet. I just got my PS3 on Thurs and immediately downloaded the last firmware update. I didn't realize another one would be coming so soon.

    If they would release some on the PS3, I'm sure people would.

    Next month the beginning of the floodgates will open. I'm looking forward to Warkhawk and Lair, and then Heavenly Sword in September. Speaking of Heavenly Sword, the demo should be out on PSN this week.

    I'm not too worried, I had the same dry spell with my 360 until Oblivion came out the following year. Same thing with my PS2 back in the days, and PSP (though Twisted Metal, Ridge Racer and Wipeout were a good start). Played Zelda: Twilight on GC, so I still don't have a reason to own a WII-WII. There will be dry spells at the beginning of a launch, aside from some moderately good games (though I hardly consider Resistance and Motorstorm moderately good.

    Still it's good to see the potentially great games coming. Ratchet And Clank should be excellent.

    I saw that, the special edition will have Hard Boiled on the disc with the game. Pretty cool.

    And I hope the Heavenly Sword demo does come out this week. I think it is confirmed for the EU store so even if the states doesn't get it, I'll download it from there. :D

    I think you all know I was just joking. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a fan of the PS3 and will be getting one when I see that games come out that I want.

    If you get one around the time that Warhawk comes out, we should hook up and form a clan. That game is a buttload of fun. The air combat is phenomenal because of the physics of the warkhawk and the ability to perform some crazy manuvers, it's also a very pretty game and supports 4 people on the same machine, online.

    Me too. Chow Yun Fat is awesome and my bootleg DVD version from Chinatown really needs to be updated.

    Also, a special edition remaster DVD of Hard Boiled came out today too. So for those of you without a Blu Ray player or PS3, jump on that because anything from the late 80/early 90 featuring the names John Woo and Chow Yun Fat in the credits is definitely worth the time and money.
