:) Thanks for sharing TombRaiderLover. :tmb:

I wonder if you can save your old PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games directly to the PlayStation 3's hard drive instead of using Memory Cards? :confused:

I hate to say this, but i dont think we will be getting a PoP game for some time, and i dont think the next one will feature the sands.

I'm going to pre-order one soon, BUT--And this is important--I might cancel my pre-order when the price is announced! I can't wait to see what magic Sony has to pull out of their :cen: to try to sell this at a competitive price!

And what in hell is "4 D gaming?" What spin-meisters they have at Sony, LOL!

LOL, the real answer to that is any system can provide that--it's up to the developers! Blinx on the Xbox had that "feature" and, to an extent, I guess you could say POP: Sands of Time did too.

that was X-II
so basically its 10-part 2...which was crap as i always liked the fact that FF's were never linkd to eachother (i dont know where FFXI went though if its XII???)...i did not buy X-II as i didnt like the thought that it was the same old people...

Re 4D:

Ypu sit down at your console, play a game, then you look at a clock and somehow notice that a few hours passed by - hence, 4D gaming :p

Thanks for this TombRaiderLover :)

You mean X-2 or 10-2. FFXI is an online game only. XII has been released in Japan already, afaik.

Square Enix recently went on FF-compilation frenzy. Among all those FFX-2 (and rumor about X-3), Dirge of Cerberus, Snowboard, Crisis Core, Before Crisis, Advent Children and Last Order I'm not surprised someone gets confused as to what's happening to the main series :p Yep, we're at XII now (Japan has it, we wait for August afair), the last FF for PS2. XI was MMORPG. There's rumor flying about XIII as well, and of course, the one about PS3 FFVII remake. There hasn't been anything but a single movie on E3 2005 that could support the latter, though. That was just a tech demo. And big fish from Square say it's impossible in the upcoming years.

But still, I wonder. TombRaiderLover - why did you include Advent Children as a game for PS3? Did I miss something or you've just mistaken it for FFVII remake?

OOPS, I think the 'Advent Children' at the end is incorrect.

I'll definitely get a PS3, opening day, even if I have to wait in line for hours and hours!

One thing I don't understand though. What the heck do they mean by adding 4-D? How is that even possible?

Well,a japanese fan asked recently Square Enix president Youichi Wada if a FFVII release for PS3 is possible and Wada answered that "it is extremelly difficult,but we will look into it."
I don't know if i want to see a remake of FFVII although it's one of my all time favourite games.We already have Dirge of Cerberus and Advent Children(although it's a movie.)Square Enix made enough money out of VII's success,i think it's better they focus on new things...

Well until they do that you have to be a little sceptical! Sony has done this before... they greatly exagerated the graphical power of the PS2 and now it's evident they are doing all they can to undercut the XBox 360. Making incredible promises is all part of that. A lot of people are like "forget the 360--the PS3 will blow it away!" But we don't really know that!!! It's a smart business strategy but I just wish people would see that that is what's happening here!

I've supported Sony heavily through their PS1 and PS2 incarnations, but all I want now is something tangible about the PS3. I want to see if the specs remain the same and the games are truly as awesome as they claim they will be. And I don't want to have to go broke to enjoy it either! :)

well if it's 400€ I'm sure ppl can save that amount of money if the y wan't to.. can.. I just said my opinion about sceptics and pessimistics.. I'm always optimistic.. well almost.. it's a nice way to live and gives you hope.. Even though it might be false hope... ( what is it lately that everyone's been on me lately... I'm a big trouble maker... )

I'm prepared to spend $400.00 (american) on the PS3, same as I paid for the 360... and I'll be happy even if it's just equivalent to the 360 under those circumstances! I really don't want to pay more though (not that I can't it's just that I don't think it should be more than that). So I might wait if it's higher... unless they really blow me away in the coming months and convince me that it's significantly better than the 360--then I may consider spending more than I did on the 360.

well if it's 400 dollars as it says in some mags that means that its scheaper than the xbox 360 here.. though taxes might get it 22% higher prize here in finland :hea: .... anyways with those specs wou would not get a pc with 3000€ or even more...

I might get this console. I'm not 100% sure but, it does look amazing and I've always trusted Sony.

I might also if I get the money preorder it so, It might come on the day of release with a game.

Does anyone no how much the games will cost? I say £40 - 55!

22-03-06, 18:17
I am waiting for the PS3 to release before I buy it or the 360....though I am positive Sony will wipe the floor...again:D. With 360 games being $59.99, I would assume the PS3 games will follow suite, and maybe cost a bit more!

Lara Lover
22-03-06, 18:19
Yes, I think so too. Although, I'm not going to get the 360 though. I'll probably get the console with 1 game to start. The game I would choose would be Resident Evil 5. If it's not out on the release date (PS3 date) then, I'll just wait and get it whenever I can. :tmb:

lol, my thoughts exactly! I am also sure they will re-release TRL on the PS3, seeing how they are releasing it on every available platform (except the nintendo consoles, for their obvious reasons).

22-03-06, 18:37
Yes, that's exactly what I'm thinking a re-release of PS3 and if it is. I'll be getting it.

Thanks! though it sucks being a sony fan at work, because EVERYTHING electonic in our office is Dell. I hate dell! My personal laptop is a Sony Vaio, and my head phones (can't think of the real term, lol) are also Sony. Since sony doesn't make notebook cases (that I know of) I have a Targus bag and charger adapter.

By the way, I love chinese:D :tea:

I'm not a fanboy for anyone... I like whatever brings enjoyment to my life... in this case all 3 current systems and, soon, all 3 next gen systems! I'll eventually have them all once PS3 and Revolution are released, LOL! :D

As for Legend, I just think you all are grasping at straws for a PS3 version... now TR8 certainly will be on it, but Legend is XBox 360's day in the sun! :tea:
