    Yep, you can use any image you want for the XMB background, and I have about 280 high-res wallpapers on my PS3 that are essentially just professional photographs. When you get a PS3 of your own I'll e-mail a zip file with all of them. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    And I think I highlighted this feature in the now-classic PS3 tutorial video...
  2. It's definitely superior in some respects (eg, personal communication) and the PS3 is superior in others (eg, multimedia).

    I just wish people could play all games on all systems. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  3. The 360 was here first, the PS3 was created just to create conflict. I don't understand how you can as a christian support something like that.
  4. Did any of you buy Dead Space?

    One of my PSN friends in playing it right now and I was just curious if anybody else picked it up. I'd love to hear if the developer managed to succeed in freaky people out with the sound effects like they've been touting.
  5. So ya the 360 is superior for games and online multiplayer and the ps3 is superior for playing blue ray
  6. There are many things they're both superior at (price for the 360, reliability for the PS3, number of games for the 360, included hardware features for the PS3, etc). But I disagree with your comment about games because that's entirely subjective.
  7. Anyone getting Saints Row 2?
  8. After what I saw of it at PAX, not a chance.
  9. Dead Space comes with two demos on the disc

    Eager horror fans who just picked up Dead Space will find a couple of extra goodies when they pop the disc into their system. At least on the PS3 version, you get two Blu-ray disc icons under the Game XMB -- one for Dead Space of course, but surprisingly also one for 'EA Demos'.

    Included on the disc are demos for Battlefield: Bad Company and Burnout Paradise. One of the interesting parts of this is that they are install packages not ready-to-go demos. This means you can install them off the disc and play them regardless of whether Dead Space is in your PS3.

    At this time it is unknown if the Xbox 360 version has the demos as well (they take up an additional 1.2GB of space), but this would be an interesting way to utilize the extra space that Blu-ray discs provide.

    [that's a pretty clever way for EA to get additional exposure for their games, and I doubt it costs them anything]
  10. yeah it looks hella jacked.

    its lol to see how desperately they're clinging onto marketing hope with the fistfulls of cash they've thrown at random b-list celebrities to make commercials with

    gameplay videos look sooooo zZz
  11. They really should have made the game less...ethnic. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/confused.gif"></A>

  13. Actually, yes. It's almost like watching BET.
  14. wow
  15. why would they even bother putting 2 old demo's on the disc, that you can just download or get out of a magazine? just seems like a waste of effort.
  16. Not everybody has internet access.

    I'm just surprised there aren't more demos on the disc because it can't be that hard to do.
  17. getting demo discs is crazy easy.

    i dont know, if they are going to put them on a game i'd just expect them to be something interesting.
  18. I haven't seen a demo disc since last gen.
  19. pick up a magazine, look online, ask retailers, they are everywhere.
  20. i want to try out the shawn white snowboarding game, back in the day i used to have a lot of fun with skateboard/snowboard games.
  21. niggers sell

    GT5 Prologue - View your rankings online

    Amar212 of the GTPlanet forums recently discovered an online GT5 Prologue ranking system, where users can view their progress stats and compare themselves to other players. Unfortunately it is only available in Japanese. It's still very useful because the rankings list all players around the globe, and you can use the images and few English phrases to guide yourself around the panel. You can see that the table headings are in English, as well as a few titles such as Drift and Time Trail. Also the last time I checked, the usernames are now in English. Also when browsing through the different tracks, you will see the track logo, so you can just reference back to GT5 and you should easily get accustomed. Times, are also in English form, and I think that is one of the most important things really. Also, a few of the cars have English tid-bits such as the BMWs and some GTRs.

    You can check it out here -->

  25. Since everyone has been asking about Dead Space I just picked it up tonight for the 360. I don't play a lot of survival/horror games but I think it's pretty damn scary.

    The controls are the same as RE4 basically. The sound is certainly excellent. Gameplay is pretty tight. It's a little slow and methodical, but intentionally. Zero g is a little confusing but pretty cool.

    And wait till the first time a monster attacks you in open space. It's as eerily quiet as you would expect it to be.

    One interesting thing is that you can't access any menus (except display and controls) from the pause. That means reading your map and managing your inventory are in real time. So imagine being in open space changing an air can so you can breath and then being attacked.

    So far I like it. It'll be worth beating.
