    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is awesome so far. I never would have thought it was this good. The demo didn't do this game justice. I am 65% done, and have loved each and every minute.

    i finally got myself a second six axis controller. now i need to get a blue tooth headset for when r6v2 comes out next month. i noticed they have an official PS3 headset for about 50 bucks. is there a reliable list of headsets that work with the ps3 out there?

    I second that, buy a Jabra they are good Blue Tooth headsets. Also, there isn't an official Blue Tooth headset made by Sony, the one you are thinking of is made by Mad Catz. Never buy a Mad Catz product.

    My headset is a Jabra as well, but at BT135. I deliberately got the one that comes with Warhawk so it would most likely work. It was AUD$30.30 brand new on eBay.

    Seems like the DS3 is finally dated for a April 15th release date (to coincide with the GT5: P release) with a price tag around $55.

    Also, MGS4 may have a release data of June 12th, and the word is that there is gonna be a MGS4, 80gb PS3, and DS3 bundle.

    All this info is coming from a retailers only Sony conference.

    Its been confirmed that a new 80GB (with BC) bundled with MGS4 and DS3 is coming, hopefully around June 12th. It will cost $500.

    Also, MGS: Online beta is coming for peeps who pre-order the game.

    I was just playing Guitar Hero 3 online and for some reason my console just completely randomly turned off. The screen just went black and I looked and the light on it was red like it is when it's on standby. I turned it back on and used it for a few minutes and it worked pretty much the same. I wonder why it would do that?

    I'm pretty sure it has plenty of ventilation, about 10cm on one side, 6cm till my wii on the other side, about 15-20cm at the back and 30-40cm above.

    I hope it was just a tiny power blackout of something because there was something weird happening with the power yesterday, but I don't think anything else done anything.
