People who own or have owned a PS3 please come in here

Well I got drunk last night and thought that after spending so much money on everyone else for Christmas that it would be a good idea to spend even more money that I don't need to on myself and bought a 80GB PS3.
Amazon.com: PlayStation 3 80GB Motorstorm Pack: Video Games

So anyway afterwards I decide to look up some games(aka GT5 which as a really ****ty car and track list http://www.gran-turismo.com/gt5p/cars.swf ) and read up on it a little bit, and it apparently has a problem playing certain PS and PS2 games and on the ones it will play it has poor imagen quality do to a crappy emulator or something. Has anyone here had a problem with this on their PS3, or is this just fanboys of other systems hating. I still have my PS2, but it suck that I will need to use it to get good imagen quality. I also need to get a HDTV to work good with it.



I'm also reading that the PS3 has gone from 1080p to 720p. Is this true? Wouldn't that mean a lesser quality image?

Re: People who own or have owned a PS3 please come in here

it's true that the emulator will only play some of the newer psx/ps2 games. and the new 40gig sku is supposed to lack the emulation engine completely, though that may just be rumor

the 720p thing depends soley on your TV. if your tv can output at 1080p, then the ps3 will send it a 1080p signal. assuming that you have everything set up right

Some games are only in 720p

Re: People who own or have owned a PS3 please come in here

I get mine today. Madden 08 is a 720P game and I got that one. I got the 40GB version because I don't need it to play my older games. I already have a PS2. I plan on picking up Assasins Creed and NCAA Football 08 tomorrow.

The PS3 will output 1080P if the media you are using supports it. All Bluray movies are 1080P

As of the 1.80 firmware version, upscales games and DVDs to 1080p as well. So your old games will actually look better on a PS3.

I know this for a fact because I occasionally play GTA3. It looks much better since 1.80. It's truly a noticeable difference in image quality.

Thanks for the replies ya'll.

Hey bbunt can't you download the updates that Sony comes out with? I looked up the 1.80 firmware version you are talking about and it looks like Sony has just released a newer 2.10 version.

Yes, if you have your PS3 hooked up to the internet (mine is on my wireless home network), you will automatically be notified of updates whenever they are released. It's just like how Microsoft does their updates for Windows.

Re: People who own or have owned a PS3 please come in here

If you have it hooked up to the internet like I do, when updates come out you have to download it before you can do anything else.

The 60 gig is the most backwards compatible. And the PS2 games I have played on it have looked just fine.

Best console IMO.

What is your reasoning for that?

I have my PS3 and Wii, room mate has his 360. 360 gets used next to never besides to play Scene it. That is why he is giving it to his brother. Besides Halo and Scene it, there havent been any 360 exclusives that have just drawn my attention to it. What Gears of War is the other big one.

So the 360, get the Elite, and you dont have to spend the 90 bucks for the HDMI conversion kit.

So that is $449.99

So I want to hook it up wirelessly...Well Wireless Network Adapter is $99.99

Total of $549.98

Now I want to watch HD-DVDs...since that is what Microsoft is pushing..So HD-DVD Player for the 360, Price $179.99

Total of $729.97

Or If I want all that wrapped in one package and get Blu-Ray.
PS3 80 Gig Price $499.99

Total $499.99 and it comes with a game.

Which is overpriced now.

And lets not forget online play. Lets see pay 8ish bucks a month. or get an awesome network that works great for free. And before the argument you dont get annoying 12 year olds on Live since you have to pay...just call BS on yourselves because I know annoying 12 year olds on live. Parents will pay for it, or parents will make their kids work for it. You get them on the PS3, but I really havent had a problem with it.


and lets see, the other arguement. kinda said this at first..Games. Oh the 360 has a ton of games. Helps having the year jump, but after walking around gamestop for the majority it was the same old crap games that fill the market with little substance. Wii games are more exciting then those. Yes the PS3 has few games but they have alot of them that are good quality games. All those 360 games I will just play the PS2 version if I wanted to.

Someone please give me a good reason why the Red Ring of Death machine is better then the rest.


and since I am looking into this...straight from the XBOX website

Game Compatability is aparently across the board. Arcade version doesn't support Xbox games and it looks like not all will work for the Normal and elite. And does the 360 have Bluetooth...from the way it looks people are jerry rigging headsets to work. Where the PS3 is Bluetooth, infact the controllers are bluetooth too.

hahahahaha that is funny.

Honestly it is the 360 that is the joke.

Don't worry SrATEX, the 80GB PS3 will skeet all over import boy and his 360. :yank:

The only thing I don't like about the PS3 is I can't find any games that appeal to me. PS and PS2 games FTW. FF VII looks great on the PS3 and so does Hitman - Silent Assassin.

PS3 games are great if you like repetition.

ports, sequels, and other various mind drivel based games.

pc games ftw... none of the new generation of consoles have impressed me much. the only thing that intrigued me so far is the wii's ability to get the whole family (aka girlfriends) involved into gaming.

How do you download game demo's? Theres "Start Download" or anything like that on the PS site.
PlayStation.com

Can't you download them to a USB card and then add it to the PS3? My computer is to far from my TV to use the Ethernet cord they supplied.

Re: People who own or have owned a PS3 please come in here

Many good games on PS3. Yes there are sequals and the such, but others that arent.

Resistance Fall of Man is a good shooter. Warhawk is a good multiplayer games, Kane and Lynch, Lair, and Skate. Those are just a couple of mine I can see from where I am on the couch.


You can download trailers, videos, demos, add-ons, and games all from the Playstation Store on the PS3.

I enjoy gaming on my PC. But that is dependant on the game. Typically FPS games on PC, but COD4 plays very well on the PS3, same with UT3. Now a days about the main type of games I play on PC is Age of Empires and Civilization type games along with WoW occasionally.
