    There would be a chance that a shop would do a pre order deal later on or something wouldn't there? But I would probably just pre order it now if I was you and I was worried about it selling out.



    It only done it once in that one game, but I haven't played it much since (homework, tests to study for etc...). I suppose it was just random, my Xbox 360 used to freeze quit often before I got rid of it.

    Sounds like it's probably just that game.

    So who else is excited about Twisted Metal coming to PS3? Plus another PS3 exclusive from David?

    David Jaffee, the creator of Twisted Metal and God of War. When you do this combination of things in Twisted Metal: Head On for the PS2, a message pops up saying he is making Twisted Metal for the PS3. Rumored to kinda be the scale of GTA, game land wise.

    I dont think you should pre-order.
    It is kinda pointless to do this these days.
    Most games never outsell anymore since there are soooo many stores that carry them now.
    Plus, they usual have specials on games the first week they come out (like something free or $5 off).
    So if you pre-order you usually wind up paying more.

    well i just ordered a bluetooth headset "plantronics" for 25 bucks that got a high rating on new egg. that should come in the mail by monday. and i preordered r6v2 from amazon and that should arrive the day it gets released in stores. amazon has a price protection thing that if the price goes lower they will deduct the difference. anyway, i dont feel like driving around to all sorts of stores to just buy a game so this will be the best way i guess.

    I'm the same way, if I could buy everything from online retailers I would be happy.

    My PS3 automaticaly turned off again, :(. This time it was in the Resistance: Fall of Man Demo. I rang customer support and they said if it does it again within the next few days I can get a replacement. I hope it doesn't not do it before it's 30 days old and then start doing it after, because then they will just fix it or something rather then giving me a new one.

    ..My PS3 turned itself off again in Gran Turismo HD Concept, and then shortly after in Formula 1 Championship Edition Demo. I guess that means I get it replaced. I must be so unlucky, I sold my Xbox 360 with a high failure rate incase it broke and got a PS3 with a low failure rate, then my PS3 breaks, and my Wii is broken too, and they have a low failure rate as well. My computer is also broken at the moment (i think it's my hard disk (I think I don't have receipt and it's under warranty)).

    I would recommend that you invest in a nice surge protector.

    I don't think it would be something to do with the power, because with the PS3, it's only it that is affected, nothing else so far as I know, and with my wii, it's something to do with the disc drive, I have to eject the disk until it says "please re-insert disc" and then put it back in for it to work. My little brother has a Wii coming from the same power point and so far as I know it doesn't have anything wrong with it.

    Thats pretty cool of Amazon.com I never knew they did a thing like that. Odds of it being cheaper when it comes out though, probably not great.


    As far as Twisted Metal, the first two or three games were alright, but I wasnt a huge fan of them. They are fun though in short bursts, so Im assuming it will stay the same fun level but with alot sweeter graphics. I like the clown though (sweet tooth or whatever) He rocked.

    I might look into that headset Easyrhino, seeing as my plantronics isnt synching up. Ill go check it out now in fact.

    MGS4 and FFXIII FTW!!!

    yea so....i think something is wrong with my new six axis controller. so if im using it with the other controller turned off it is fine. but when i turn on the other controller then the new controller starts freaking out! like it keeps scrolling up and down in the XMB menu and in games it keeps moving up. any ideas?

    so i got my headset and it works great! its the plantronics 350 or whatever the mid range headset is. decent range at about 20 feet of solid reception and then it breaks up after that. that doesnt matter to me tho since im using it mainly in the same room. also, it only cost 25 bucks so im not complaining. everyone i played with online said it sounded good. now im just waiting for r6v2 to come out so i can play team based stuff with a headset finally!

    Awesome man! The blue tooth headsets are awesome, I love playing an all wireless console.

    How's that controller working for you? I've never had that problem with my controller so I don't know what it could be. Maybe you dropped it? :confused:

    well i did drop it but it was like a 2 foot fall. i highly doubt that broke it. so it works ok most of the time but its like the left analog stick is super sensitive.

    is it really worth the added cost to get a 7200 RPM drive over a 5400 RPM drive for the PS3 ?

    Sure. Mainly because your games will load faster.
