    Its a brilliant blu ray player, trouble is there's bugger all BD movies to hire at block buster:mad:, tell me, has anyone had problems with the online racing since the last update, (i don't know if it was the update 4 GT5 or burnout paradise city, but i can get online OK, its just when i try to enter a race in GT5, i get a Fail:1100000 message during matching. It was fine before the 15th of April, and I've done nothing to my network, seems the only way around it is to port forward. Time to go and test it again, F#$&%$g pain in the arse piece of shit network lol:banghead:

    Yeah I saw that as well, and it wasn't just any 10 out of 10. It was a straight flush, it got 10 for Presentation, Graphics, Sound, Game play, Lasting appeal and overall score (which isn't an average). UK IGN gave it 10 also.

    I live like 45 minutes from the shop I pre-ordered it at so I have to get my sister to pick it up and bring it home the following weekend.. ohh the agony lol.

    I been reading all the reviews for GTA4, and I am quite surprised and happy that the game runs BETTER (and looks better) on the PS3!!! I thought that we might get the short end of the stick, for this game did start PS3 development a little later than the 360.

    JB HiFi are releasing it at a great price, $84.87 on either PS3 or Xbox 360, I'm heading 2 EB Games at 12.00 midnight for the big release. Hopefully they'll price match JB, if not i,ll be awaiting opening time outside JB 2morrow morning. This should be absolutely shit hot.:D

    Major, Isn't JB Hifi only Australian? $84.87 isn't cheap in U.S. lol. Big-W has it for $84. Too bad I already pre-ordered mine at Target for $99.95, that was the cheapest I could find at the time.
    calvary1980 says thanks.
  12. Major_Bunghole Guest

    Yep, as far as I know JB is only Aus, but even tho we get ripped off for games compared to the U.S, the majority of outlets will be charging AU$119.00, so really, 84 bucks oz is bloody good. could you imajine the upraor if our freinds in the good ole US of A had to pay what we pay for games, remember that the exchange rate is around 92c at the moment, so we pay a hell of a lot more than 8c in the dollar (the difference between $1 us and $1 Oz) than those in the U.S. It stinks doesn't it.

    Not long now. 7 hours till it comes out here (although I don't get it for a few days :().

    @Australians(major), IGN just had an article saying that they couldn't find out what was cut out of the Australian one compared to the rest so it wasn't noticeable, but TBH I would have preferred it if they had cut out some of the types of stuff that's in it, anyway it'll still be fun :).

    Or go to walmart/best buy/etc and only support the big companies :roll:

    What a joke...either way, I'll take the $600 and run thats for sure...

    Maybe I'll grab a dual shock, a blu-ray, and NCAA '08....

    Any other decent racing games?

    My bud is gonna bring his PS2 Logitech wheel over and we might try the 2P battle...I can just see him reaching over and turning my wheel so I spin out LOL I'd probably be me though, he's a much better racer...

    :cry: NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :banghead:

    so i call gamestop tonight and ask them if i can buy gta4 tonight during the midnight sale. they said no, it is only for people who preordered it. so i drive to the store and ask them if i can preorder it and they tell me, "sorry but the deadline for preorders was 6PM" :cry:

    it was 7:15 PM !!!!!!!! and then they said that if i come back tomorrow morning at 10Am they may have copies. that doesnt make any sense. why would they have copies at 10AM tomorrow but not have one i could buy right now? regardless, i will have to buy it tomorrow morning.
