    As far as i know you can't disable it, only take out the "whats new" section.

    Larger Font's suck but i guess thats cause a lot of people were saying that the fonts were too small on there large LCD tv's.

    hey guys, I think they got the font the wrong way around, for eg. the XMB font is to big now and when u use the internet browser it still has crappy small font, and I got it on the highest font settings and still didnt do shit! and one more thing sony, can you finally release some damn new music visualizations, i mean come on seriously, im sick of starring at the earth, lol.

    Yeah I thought they would have added some new visualization with this update but no nothing. I mean the PSP has more variety then the 3 the PS3 has.

    Just beat Batman: AA, got all the Riddles and such,

    Game is great, gonna play through it again, still have to do all the challenge maps

    One thing that upset me was i thought i had awhile to go in the game cause when i left off it was at 46% complete, than i finshed the game and it came up as 76% complete :(.
    So i excepted it to be longer than it was, after i got all the Riddles it now says 84% complete, and im hoping in order to get 100% i just have to do the challenge maps...

    Currently Looking Forward To: Pure
    Blu-Rays Purchased:LittleBigPlanet

    Got mine for a bunch of things but why i picked it over the XBox was due the failure rate and playing movies and being free to play online. My kid likes it too which is another +.

    Not all that much into them and was happy to see so many options and just being able to just plug in any USB keyboard.

    But as you know you pay to play online with the 360 and i guess thats why it's better to some. To me it was another negitive towards the xbox.

    Thanks but i don't play 1st type games on any console as it still feels primitive (targeting). The whole reason i have a PC as a mouse is MUCH more involving.

    there is only a few games ill play on it as most are on the PC. Thinking of getting Pure for the PS3 although i can get it for the PC 1/2 the price but it will not look all that better on PC and this dam thing takes much more electric to run so.

    I am shocked that there is so many games that don't use the analog controls how they should ( on \ off ).

    Although games were only part of the reason we got it as we watch a lot of movies too and at the time were thinking of getting a upscaling DVD player anyways. So now will be able to play BD's too.

    Our electric bill dropped at least 5KWh too lol.. And yes it does matter to us even if it's a fraction of most people on this forum use as we try to keep it as low as 15KWh a day ^^.

    So for us the the PS3 been a win win win so far although would like to pick up a laptop cooler for it lol..

    MGS4 is a 3rd person shooter man and it's just phenomenal i will promise you metal gear fan or not you play that game you'll be impacted in some way, It is seriously one of the best game i've ever played and defenitly the best game of this generation, I mean as of now, until heavy rain comes out which looks very promising but still the game is like 25 dollars now and if you can even rent it. It is worth it, also MGS online is fun times!

    Also about the pointing out reasons to get a PS3 vs 360 if its based on a "point system" yeah ps3 wins

    PS3

    Free Online +
    BD player +
    DVD Upscaler +
    Internal WiFi +
    Blue tooth (so much better than 2.4ghz wireless) +
    Good Exclusives +
    Great Streaming Media Center +
    More mature audience in the online world +
    can use 3rd party controllers without a problem (i mean like a 20 dollar PC gamepad works) +
    Can use 3rd party wireless headsets+
    Can use keyboard and mouse for some games (i know you can with Unreal tournament 3) +
    Has chargeable battery already built in +
    Has a buttload of exclusives still coming out +
    EDIT
    Also forgot the interchangable hard drive to your hearts desire +

    You know what i find hilarious? is that people "complain" about the PS3 online, but the only problem i ever have with it is starting up a room it takes a while to get going but once your in your good, Considering most of the PS3's servers are actual servers and require no host console. You hardly ever get lag. I've been playing the MAG beta, and they aren't lying i was playing with 256 people and saw minimal to no lag, it was amazing.

    360
    Online only 4$ a month +
    good exclusives +
    plays dvd +
    decent media center +
    XNE is pretty user friendly +
    Better Online connecting than PS3 +
    has a few good exclusives still coming out +

    That's all i got.
