Heavenly Sword deserves a much higher score IMHO - I don't get what's not to like, except its brevity

If you click on individual titles and scroll down you can see the reviews that have contributed to the score (with links where there the resource is online).

I use it as a resource before buying my games - I don't feel that it is particularly biased to any one console and is all the better for it.

Until then, unless you are obsessed with HD films, it remains an investment in hope that the games situation will improve.

God knows what drove your mates to convert at this stage. There is really no compelling argument (HD films aside).
I've got a 360 and a Wii as well so its no big issue

It is about the films too though, I have a dedicated HD-DVD so to have the BluRay under the TV completes the home cinema.

I will get Mario Galaxy too hopefully. Drakes whatever its called looks pretty good.

Key thing as I've always said is that most of my mates now have traded the 360 in for one (apart from the BBSers of course)

Personally I don't think any of the new formats will really win this war but if I had to bet on one for longevity it would be HD-DVD. Cheap PC drives already and the studios are starting to move. Sony can't subsidise the movie industry and the games industry for too long without the shareholders getting pissed off.

First couple of levels are a bit boring, but once you get into it, it's not a bad game.

Not a touch on COD4 though, now that is an amazing game.

Ha ha that is very very true. It is quite big and heavy, but I havent tried cooking steak on it yet? Should i?

Apart from the controls. would be much better suited to PC keyboard.

Has anyone played COD4 on PS3 and XBOX360? Are they the same?

I've not seen a ps3 in real life, I just don't like the colour of the 360.
Black is best.

We was going to get a silver facia (i think) for ours so it goes with the telly, but the Wii is white and the V+ box is black so t'is pointless now.

I could not give a toss which is better or which is worse in all honesty. I have a 360 and a Wii, I know how good they both are, I know I got them before the ps3 was out so now there is no need for a ps3, ever. Who's fault is that? Me as the consumer or Sony for not releasing their product? Basically with the other 2 consoles out there offering what they do I dont honestly see the ps3 getting to the level of the other 2.

if they do, then all credit to Sony for that.
Thats a fair point, I have a PS3 and Xbox 360 and have not really been that impressed with the games list on PS3, but interface-wise I think its good, and I mainly bought it as a blu ray player, and also for hopefully future games that might be exclusive.

Xbox 360 games are better and have a bigger exclusive list, but wasnt impressed with the hardware, and noise factor. Still waiting my replacement.

I should clarify further; cheap for a blu-ray player. The 40gb PS3 is still the cheapest blu-ray player on the market although Samsung have recently released one for around 330.

wifi is rubbish for gaming and streaming, I have my house network hard wired. I have used the USB port once on the 360, see above. I use my hard drive for games saves, will run out in about 2023, for storage, see above. Mines broken once in 2 years, I can live with those odds. Sadly mine doesn't make healthy bacon sandwiches, but I have a real Geroge Foreman grill for that.

get bent.
