    Anyone in the SOCOM Beta? How is it. I'm planning on pre-ordering it, but this will be my first venture into the SOCOM universe.

    My nephew and my nephew in law :roll: have been playing the 09 on the 360 and they say its awesome. I think it may be the better buy, personally.

    Id like to post all the things I would do to megan fox, but its a bannable offense :roll:

    needless to say, she is super hot and even more so on the bd edition. One question, who is the Megan Fox look alike chick when Megatron is slow mo flying over head and the chick (hot looking) is screaming?

    Madden 09 on the 360 is very impressive. Im sure the PS3 version will be just as good.

    I can now call myself a member of the PS3 club. I bought mine, however, primarily for Bluray playback.

    It matters not why you bought it, only that you did. Be sure to leave your info so we can add you to our lists :D

    eh the games just look the same and it just comes down to personal preference for which console you wanna play it on I usually choose playstation cause some games like gta are more comfortable to me when I play it on the ps3 rather than the 360...kinda like asking why would you play mario on a sega console I guess iunno

    Very true. Both systems have pro's & con's. Its each to their own really. I personally like both and if I was loaded I would own both :D

    ....speaking of sega.........I miss sega consoles I don't think I ever bought a sega console that didnt own.....wish there were 4 consoles to choose from other than x360 ps3 and wii
    I miss you sega.... :(


    I have a question for all the ps3 owners:
    Do the installs for the games you buy bother you?(be honest)
    I think, that if it actually does load faster then I guess its worth it otherwise I hate it.... when I wanna play the damn game I wanna play the damn game

    I admit SEGA were good but they were always outdone by Nintendo (ie NES>MasterSystem, SNES>MegaDrive/Genesis) The only SEGA console that was 'technically' better than or as good as its rivals (Nintendo GameCube / Sony PS2) was the 'Dreamcast' (and the only thing that saved that from being phased out even earlier then it was was 'piracy').

    And to answer your question. When I had a PS3 the whole 'installing the game to the HDD' business really annoyed me!

    @hookeystreet haha :roll: personal preferences aside it turns out to look a tad better, but you are right.

    I do own both consoles and besides a nice collection of games, the 360 has the mod kits going for it. PLaying games for free is the shiznet (I havent modded mine not sure if I want to). Personally I dont care for multiplayer but Xbox live is good in that regards.

    Sega Genesis was a nice system and they had some exclusives, Altered Beast was my all time fave for that system.

    Altered Beast is a classic m8 :rockout: another was 'Golden Axe'. I wasnt really into the whole console 'multiplayer' thing, but once I got a gold LIVE account I loved it (Mercenaries 2 in Co-Op mode is great fun)

    PS: come and join the 360 clubhouse :)

    I love it, but I also played socom 1-3 online a LOT. So it brings back a lot of fond memories =)

    I would say give it a chance, you will probably like it also =)

    Does anyone record their gameplay onto their pc? what do you use? dazzle? hava?

    those are the only 2 options I really noticed but don't want to spend that much to get it to work in HD with hava =\

    any suggestions?
