    I'd imagine you could as long as it fits the DL disc, Ive dl'd 1080p bluRay before as a single file, it looks excellent Im not sure if its just as good as the original Bluray as I dont have any Bluray discs to compare them to on my 37" tv but it looks fantastic even 720p is good enough for my smaller tv.

    I dont think she would have done it on purpose though. hope things work out.

    I cant wait for the video download service though, should be very interesting.

    North America is the only region that already has the video service. Everyone else is being forced to wait.

    well it sounds like the HD movie downloads are x264 which is generally a really good rip. i download movies from usenet that are generally between 5-9 gigs and they are very nice playing back on the hdtv using the ps3 to stream te media.

    Just brought myself MGS4. What an amazing game.



    I ''attempted'' to sign up for the online game play last night. Boy - That was a struggle.

    First off, the download (Update patch) took nearly TWO hours to download. I have a fairly good internet connection, but I had to download peer to peer. It was the only option it allowed...!!

    Then they need you to fill out:

    MGS4 User ID: (Your username, lock caps - 8 characters or least). It must be alphanumeric.
    Password: 8 Characters long
    Reapeat the PW:
    Email address:
    Repeat Email:

    Game ID: Enter yet another username, It must be diffrent to the one above
    Password: 6 characters, must involve only numbers
    Repeat Password:
    Email:
    Repeat email:

    The only problem is. It doesn't tell you that it needs to be alphanumeric, it doesnt tell you that your two user names have to be diffrent, it doesnt tell you that your password has to only include numbers, until you click next and it says theres an error. You then have to go back and start again.

    After attempting this 3 times, I wasn't a happy bunny. I finally got through and then had to wait half hour for a email to come through to confirm everything.

    Why can't they make it more simple.

    To right its crazy. I forgot to mention, after the two hour download - It wanted to take another half an hour of my time to install.

    I'm pretty sure its the game, not my PS3 playing up. I've only played on it a couple of times !

    Hey ho - I'm going to try and get my hands on a copy of GTA IV over the weekend.

    Well I cant help it that the TPU Forums dont support the code that I Got from PSN underground. It works on other things I got (like myspace.com) but not here. Its actually my avatar from my PSN account on my ps3 :)
