    I've gota go mow a lawn or 2 (thats how I get money), I'll be back in 2-4 hours so I'll probably miss it. I'll accept ur friend invite whenever I get it and then I'll know when ur online so maybe I can play another time.

    They did. On the older models it has the PS2 processor physically in it. The newer ones use emulation.

    The 40gb won't play ps2 games at all. The 60gb (if you can find it) has hardware for PS2 games (therefore has most games that work), the 80 gb uses emulation (has fewer games that work), I also think you can play on the 20gb model (again if you can find it)

    What sucks about using it on a 22" monitor. Works great on mine. Does your monitor have HDCP or do you use a transcoder, if so which one?



    Which multiplayer modes do people like best? I've only played free play and it seems really fun.

    Man somethings gone bad. Me and my friend both with 40gb consoles and my brother with 60gb console can't get past loading screen with GTA4 unless we unplug it from the network. Must be coz it's weekend or something so heaps of ppl wld be on. Hopefully they beef up their servers asap.

    The best one will be the discontinued 60GB, for it has the physical hardware to play PS2 games. The next choice will then be the 80GB, which is gonna come back soon in the MGS4 bundle next month. The 20GB also has the physical hardware, but it lack some many other features such as wireless.

    60%!!!!! wooooooooooot on GTA4!!!!


    on a side note: I wish they would stop bringing out killzone2 trailers I almost don't even want the game sometimes not that its teasing its that they said they were gonna release it last year and the year before that and they are just getting annoying and if it doesnt come out looks like x360 won this year again

    Yeah the thing is pretty awesome.
    You won't find those kinda details in a pc game normaly.
    But like i said before i am on 720p on my 22'' monitor and the screen is kinda jagged, like when having no aa in pc game. At first i was pretty dissapointed with the ps3 because i played Dirt and it looked way better on my pc. But a friend plays it on Full HD and he says it lookes much better on his screen.

    Also downloaded lots of demos and i am now also hooked on Fifa street.:D
