    true but you have commercials on hulu. and the movie limitations on hulu are kinda lame. or are you talking about the user interface?

    both. commercials dont bother me. and i think if you pay (cheaper then netflix?) you dont get them. not to mention I perosnally (notice personally) think the content is the same if not better. granted they dont have some movies. but I like the quality of hulu better and most of the movies they dont have are ones that dont intrest me anyway.

    i find netflix a lot better even though we pay $18 a month for it. thats for streaming how ever much you need too and 2 disks out a time which you can get about 4-6 a week with blu ray included..

    And like Hulu you can watch it on a bunch of systems at the same time although i'm not to sure about the payed version of hulu and if you can watch 2+ different programs at the same time on different systems.

    Tell ya what it's hell load cheaper than paying Comcast\Verizon thats for sure which ever you pick.

    So true did not mind them for some time on hulu then i noticed it started to get like the TV for example watching a action movie and a commercial would start and it be twice as loud but it's been months since i watched hulu so that may of stopped. And they did not like me blocking most of there ads either hehe... Get away with it with Netflix although only ones i noticed there are google but still they are blocked lol.

    I prefer Netflix over Hulu.

    Now the question is, how do you get Netflix on a non-updated PS3?

    We've been patient enough... look at the X360 with how easy it is to back up your games wherever you want (or dwnld them if you'd like xD hate stupid console exclusives...)

    Stupid console exclusives... even non-exclusives like Fifa 11 PC isn't the same as the console one... its basically Fifa 10 Console = Fifa 11 PC

    No PGA Tour or NHL since '07... games coming out months before on consoles... I HATE THAT :(

    Google is no help, and my patience is wearing thin. I'm still on 3.15, as I refuse to lose the Linux feature I paid for. I've been without usable Netflix for months now, and it's getting quite old. When AsbestOS becomes more stable, I'll update to 3.41, so at least that solves a small portion of my problems, but I need to be able to access PSN to use Netflix. I don't even want to pirate games, I just want better media playback/format support, and to keep all the features I payed for.

    I feel for ya, but what else can we do aside from buying another PS3?

    Can't you get online with Linux and then go to netflix from there?

    Playstation move. was thinking about asking for it for xmas. Not sure I should though. I have found wii sports fun from time to time. For the most part though Ill play shooters/rpgs with the controller. Though if shooting can be fun with it, id certainly use that. Any opinions from move owners here? Or even those who have considered purchasing it.

    Well the Move as far as the hardware goes is in fact really good and you will soon be able to use the Move on your PC. So motion control on your PC bonus.

    Now as far as games go (my experience)

    Resident Evil 5 was a whole other experience with the move. It was definitely fun to play using the move although my friend did prefer the controller cause he was more comfortable with it. Doing the action sequences with the move was much easier all you have to do is wave it around. Looking at the stat results at the end of each chapter it was safe to say that the Move vs the controller was pretty even. Our accuracy and kills would pretty much come even with me exceeding his grade from time time, overall performance is roughly the same Move vs Controller.

    Start the Party Really fun move game something everyone in the family can enjoy. I could see families getting bored of this fast but every time someone new comes along its resets the fun meter on this game.

    Time Crisis Razing Storm successfully brings the arcade shooter to your home. Its basicly some good MP killing fun. Again move works just like it shoot but the game isn't amazing as far as story line goes but then again I have barely played this. Only time I do play it is when friends come over.

    Get fit with mel B. Something my mom plays have yet to see it.

    Sports Champions Excellent game, really fun solo or multi and the move like always performance exceptionally. Games that I didn't find to interesting or lame were Volleyball and Disc Golf. However Disc Golf can get pretty competitive and my lil cousin likes volleyball a lot.

    Black Friday is a terrible day for GT5 release. A lot of people are out of town, and people with sanity avoid shopping that day because of the crazy crowd. Best is the 23rd, so we can enjoy the game over the extra long weekend.

    My guess it the game is gonna come out on the 30th.
