    That's amazing, I didn't know they were compatible with all PS1 games....
    I expected the opposite, actually. Thanks for the info.

    yes, the discontinued 40 GB PS3 doesn't play PS2 games and all PS3's play PS1 games.

    i think the ps3 is cool

    we know that bluray is the best for movies
    but games work different

    the only thing i have against it is the price
    but their was a nice price drop recently and i am hoping for a few more

    seeing as i dont own a 360 or ps3 i don't know the top 10

    but gta looked pretty sweet at play n trade

    I have GT5 prologue, motorstorm, and resistance. They're pretty good but you'll probably want to get the 2nd motorstorm and resistance, and GT5 is the prologue of the upcoming full version ;).

    I hope 2009 will be a great year for the PS3, as there are many good titles coming out. What do you think about the upcoming Heavy Rain?

    Well I liked Fahrenheit, so hopefully I'll like Heavy Rain. The visuals look quite impressive, I haven't really seen all that much gameplay. I'll look into it more as more information is released.

    Killzone 2 and Resi 5 demos downloaded, woo, impressions when I get back from work. I wish it was 4:30 now :'(

    Okay, home now and played both.

    Resident Evil 5
    If you love Resident Evil 4, you will most likely love this. The controls annoyed me in a few situations but other than that this game seems great. The visuals are quite good, a few odd things happen when you kill zombies, mainly clipping issues, but this is a demo which upon starting reminds you that it has not been taken from the final build, so these things may not be apparent in the final build.

    Killzone 2
    My oh my, this game is truly amazing. Everything ,the visuals, the gameplay, the visuals, the sound, the everything. Even the half arsed voice acting is good, in a macho-violent-bad **** kind of way. The visuals really are truly amazing, something you have to experience yourself.
    If you consider yourself a fan of the original or a fan of FPS games in general I shouldn't have to tell you to download this. My only complaints are that the demo seemed way too short and I would have liked it to include at least one section where you use the SIXAXIS (apart from the loading screen) as I find the ways they've been implemented rather intruiging. Good work Guerilla, have a beer on me, you deserve it.

    I'm downloading Resident Evil 5 and Killzone 2. But killzone is pending because RE5 is first on the list. When is Heavy Rain going to be released???

    Thanks. :)

    I would like it to come soon, but if they need time to make a GREAT GAME, no problem

    Have you guys seen the official God of War III trailer, it looks jaw droping, seriously I wish they haven't moved the release date until 1q 2010, but that game is going to be awesome, in the meanwhile RE5 and Killzone2 will keep me busy until Uncharted 2 is released, then GOW 3

    God of War and Killzone 2 both look pretty unreal. God of War on the PSP was great, so lets hope the game play on the PS3 is as good or better.

    This game is AMAZING! Forget Killzone 2 and Gran Turismo, $%#^ Crysis, this game looks awesome and plays like a dream. It's like being slowly embraced into a heaven of tranquility and bliss where not a care in the world waits you, only an aura of pleasure... buy it. -.-

    I am in the same boat as you,i bought my PS3 for GT5,and to the guy that said it's expensive it's only about $100 more than when the PS2 came out and it's a much better machine than the PS2.

    I think he's meaning it's better comparably... but anyway, I agree, it's better. ><

    Yes its better I'm just curious how we can buy a blue ray player for less than 200usd. And the other parts for the ps3 cost almost 150 usd total.

    Its a good system, dont get me wrong, but mine is sittin her collecting dust.

    You could say the same for the PS2(DVD) and the PS1(CD).

    I know a bit about flower, you tilt the sixaxis & collect petals. So hows killzone's multiplayer?

    I like PS3, its more reliable than my 360, (that just destroyed my HALO 3, I just got the new Maps,) I think this weill be the year for the PS3, but recently I have clocked more time playing Gears and Halo pn my 360. I only really play House of the dead 1+2 on the WII and have been playing COD4 and GTA4 on PS3. (MS got the exclusive DLC for GTA4 thats another think that has bugged me)

    If you are really into gaming then you need all 3 consoles for the exclusives. Xbox: gears +Halo, WII: Well all nintendo games. PS3: Killzone ETC.
    And of cource PC: you got services Like Steam. Also The Sims, flight similators, and games that just won't run/work on consoles.

    All in all, you could easily spend £1000+ Gaming each year, my most recent PC upgrade cost £500. If you want budget, go 360, if you want family go WII if you want handheld: DSi/ PSP if you want to be able to play all games, or want a blueray player go PS3. Its simple. (I don't own a HDTV Yet but still have a PS3) +My PS3 was free with my mobile (cell phone) contract.

    This is my opinion.
