    Took my unit a apart and cleaned it all out! Made it througha whole game. Will continue on and see if it works out!

    On another note. To switch out the HDD, does one have to somehow load the OS back on to the ps 3 or is that a part of the firmware or what? And what HDD's are compatible? Besidesbeing SATA does the speed matter or brand? It has a seagate 40gig in it right now. Im guessing its 5400rpm.

    The OS is in the flash. You do lose all of your data tho, so back up to an external before you swap it out.

    And all you need is any 2.5" SATA drive 9.5mm or shorter. Even SSDs will work.

    Nah if you put any money down on it then it should be pre-ordered and they'll hold you one when it comes in.

    but ya know, the thing is it took 4 years to crack. Thats pretty good really. I mean heck, look at the Wii....they even have an emulator for it and you can play all the Wii games on your PC...how cracked is that? dont even need their dam system. At least Sony still gets the sale of the system and likely some peripherals.

    if PC games could even last 1 year without being cracked, we would see much better titles and exclusives.

    *edit: i just realized that many such hackers, like in the article say repeadetly its about homebrew, not piracy. IF its true and is why hackers hack....then why didnt they just do so using Linux...i'm pretty sure thats why Sony made "other OS" available. they can program whatever homebrew they wanted. the cell can do simple games too, no need of RSX but next time SOny should include a simple integrated graphics for that purpose
    so no, it has to be all about piracy and recognition for hacking it

    Have you ever tried otherOS on the PS3? It really is only good for the very basics. No access to RSX really, REALLY hurts performance. GameOS has full functionality, and runs much better. Not to mention how much more user friendly it is. Besides, those same hackers already have linux running on the GameOS portion of Hypervisor, so I actually do think homebrew and development were their primary concerns, not piracy.

    I have recently bought Bayonetta for my ps3 and i have to say the gameplay is nice since its just like DMC,but you get to play as some sexy teacher(stereotypical because of the glasses i know lol) shooting at "angels?"
    But my only problem i have is the stupid load time why can't it be a normal load screen instead of allowing you to do tricks/training/combos?
    Maybe it saves time but i think it makes the normal load time to go into the game slow,but then theirs the difficultie of getting money to just buy items etc and i know the game requires patience and dodging but damn its tough game that i can't really get into like i can with DMC. =/

    see kuro I didn't like bayonetta - I didn't like GoW much either, but i liked Dantes Inferno.
    I'm thinking it's story more than gameplay(for me) in regards to the QTE games.

    In term of gameplay, GoW III > Dante Inferno.

    I guess different people like different story.

    yeah i bought it because you kept saying that! lol not really, but you did keep hyping it :)
    i just didn't enjoy it, i don't know what else to say. the graphics were great.
    the gameplay was not that innovative imo - and that only left the story, which i have never liked.

    so i guess that's why i choose dantes. again no innovation, but at least i like the story.

    i did enjoy KZ2, though i doubt i even got halfway through.
    I am interested in the move integration, which is the main reason i will get 3.

    as for your list, all of them please :)

    I was never too into twisted metal,
    but this new one looks pretty good imo...

    gonna be a great year for PS3 I think :)
