LennonNZ: I got a PS3 a month or so ago and loving it.. Picks up all my videos from XBMC and mythtv servers and plays most of them ok. I've borrowed a few games from people and its great.
Just waiting another 1.5 weeks for the delivery of Beatles Rock band Limited Edition Bundle. Trying to find the extra 2 guitars in NZ but no one seems to have it.. vgn.co.nz have a 2 guitar pack but have no idea yet what guitars they are (looking at the price they are probably RB1 guitars which aren't very good and I want the 2 extra beatles ones).
If anyone is interested in swapping games for a while I would be interested..
BioNz: it looks rather nice. i have the old 40G version. what else is there different from the old one apart from the hdd and the new shap?
Jaxson: Also this new one can send out the compressed bluray hd audio (bitstream) which allows for a receiver to do the uncompressing. This was not possible in the original PS3, which had to uncompress the audio and send out the raw LPCM, meaning a receiver never did the uncompressing, and never showed the relevant audio format lights.
I personally don't see that it makes any difference, but some people will be happy their expensive receiver shows the format light now.
It irks me just the smallest bit, I know it's doing it but to see it on the receiver confirmed would be nice. Not nice enough to get rid of my first release 60gb one though and get a new slim one.
halfbaked: The Warehouse has the best deal ive seen so far:
549$ !!! plus a free game from a limited selection. from the mailer on their website it looks like a
choice between Ironman, Assassins Creed, Ghost Recon 2 and one other title i cant quite make out.
Harvey Norman were only offering 595$ plus a controller charging cradle last i heard.
Interests: HTPC, Web App authoring.
