    Well the PS3 and the router are on the same floor, but there's a hallway and a couple of walls seperating them, so the cable would have to go up and over, down into my closet, snake around the room, to the PS3.

    Well, you can run that with cat6, which is cheap and good to 200 feet or so?

    Or another idea is, if there is a phone plug and/or cable tv (if you use DSL/cable for internet) in the room where the PS3 is, put the router there, and use wireless for the PC instead.

    Dudes I read the FAQ and I'm totally picking up warhawk.

    Also I am terrible at setting up networks and was having enough trouble doing so with a hardline that I gave up and went back to wireless.

    When MGS4 comes out I am likely going to have to get one. Hopefully at Christmas there will be another price drop. Then it will be relatively painless.

    I watched the shaky cam video that was released before the direct feed one. it had a small resolution and terrible picture quality. I did not see any boobs anywhere

    I still hate buying large single player games on steam. its not like Im saving any money. its like they save a bunch of money and pass the savings onto not me. lame

    But you don't have to go to a store, so that's nice.

    More importantly, the low-cost delivery may not pass savings to you, but it may enable more indie developers to get games out there, which may greatly improve the pool of games that you can play.

    I don't know, the bigger games are getting and with my connection not getting any faster, it'll get to the point where I might as well go to the store.

    and I have no problem with it being great for indie gamers. thats totally cool. I mean, I haven't played any indie games besides free mods for games, but plenty of other people seem to like them.

    its just like, at least charge 5 dollars less maybe, you huge money hungry corporations you?

    bloody fucking hell I have that classic bug where it fucks with my desktop's gamma after quitting a game.

    what the hell is wrong with nvidia... every card and every driver of their's that I've used in the last 8-9 goddamn years gets this bug.... christ fix it already. have to f'ing reboot to fix it.. no amount of fucking with the color controls gets it back to normal...

    I think that might be the game's fault.

    I like NV way better than ATI, though. Because I do a lot of OpenGL programming, and ATI sucks for that.

    good thing it's a blu-ray player too

    yes I am talking about bioshock.. for the PC.

    and now my computer goes into a loop of BSODs. Thank you Nvidia "nTune"... made the mistake of installing that again, when I knew it fucked up my system HARD last time... then I had to totally re-install Windows to get it to work again... Thank god this time I just had to reboot in safe mode and do a sysytem restore roll back.

    woo I forgot how much FUN PC gaming is!

    blaurgh Bioshock is still BSODing. i guess it could be heat related, the last time I checked the GPU temp it was 75. but I've never had any problems before. until I updated my nvidia drivers. dammit, why did I even do that?? might have to rollll it back.. fuck.

    I totally have one of these, Network ID or whatever it's called is TxdoHawk. Hopefully Eye of Judgment gets a worldwide simultaneous release in October as planned, because right now my PS3 is helping me finish MGS3, and that's about it.

    From what I have seen and played of Folklore so far I am very impressed with this game. From a technical stand point the graphics are unimpressive, but they have an amazing art team working on the game.

    Right now, my only beef with the game is mainly GUI related.

    PlayStation have just issued the following announcement

    “We have just received information that the next PS Store update, which will contain Warhawk, will be Thursday 30th August and not Tuesday 28th August as previously announced. As you know Thursday is the usual day for our PS Store refresh. We are sorry for any inconvenience that the extra 48 hours wait may cause.”

    I'm considering getting Warhawk, since the trailer looks pretty great, and the version with the headset is only £33, which isn't bad. On the other hand, my history of buying multiplayer focused games then forgetting them after about 2 weeks is pretty extensive.

    I am another one who emptied half a bank account to get a PS3, but it is oh so worth it. Warhawk + Folklore + MGS4 + Blu-ray = win.

    I'm RenegadeGuardian on PSN. Guardian452 was taken :(

    And about the Warhawk thing... if the NA store isn't getting it till the 30th, can I get it from the UK store? I really don't want the headset...

    Oh man the Folklore demo is so much fun. I'v only played with Keats so far. I'v got to say the moving the controller around aspect is actually quite fun. If there was only dualshock so you could feel yourself smashing the soul on the ground...

    Folklore has some really great art, and the feeling of Irish lore is just awesome. The motion controls feel kinda needless and tacked-on, but then again it does free up a button, it doesn't need to be activated terribly quickly, and it is really easy to activate. It's the kind of thing that would be better on a button, but at the same time, it might be a waste to have a special button just for that.

    So, PS3...

    ...has anyone played around with slow-mo/fast-forward (1.5) buttons when watching videos?

    Makes trailers sound hilarious.

    Really liking the console's media capablities otherwise too, beats 360 easily on that area at least.

    Oh, that's...cool...I guess kinda seems useless unless you want to slow-mo an action film that isn't already slow-mo'd for you. Or I guess something off of just any video you might have downloaded. So does it make the sound go lower/higher as well, or does it maintain pitch?

    1.5x forward keeps the audio (speeds it up).
