    PS3

    We've decided to get a PS3. I don't know if anyone who isn't me cares, but having heavily researched the subject, I thought I'd post my findings concerning the differences between the 40, 60 and 80 GB models.

    Now, the 60 GB is going to be gone soon. The most notable difference between it and the 40 and 80 gig models is that it's equipped with a chip that makes it 100% backwards compatible. This is the only difference (aside from 20 gigs) between it and the 80 GB. The 80 GB is supposed to be about 75% backwards compatable using a software emulation program. From my understanding, though, the 75% figure is a bit optimistic. The 60 and 80 GB are the same price.

    Next comes the 40 GB. This model also uses a software emulation program but it is inferior to the one used in the 80 GB. While the 80 GB is supposed to be 75% backwards compatible, the 40 is supposed to be 50%. However, everyone I've talked to tells me they haven't been able to get ANY PS2 games to play on it. Other differences between the 40 compared to the 60 and 80 GB; less gigs, two less USB ports, no flash card slots and $100.

    We decided to hurry and get the 60 GB before they're all gone as they're the only models that come with 100% backwards compatilbility.
    "Every noble impulse, every unselfish expression of love; every brave suffering for the right; every surrender of self to something higher than self; every loyalty to an ideal; every unselfish devotion to principle; every helpfulness to humanity; every act of self-control; every fine courage of the soul, undefeated by pretense or policy, but by being, doing, and living of good for the very good’s sake—that is spirituality." -David O. McKay

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

    See Kim, you do like your gadgets. I don't know why you want to go backwards.

    PS3 is something my boys want and it is pretty cool. It plays via broadband Internet and can play all PS games and DVDs. So I have learnt before owning one.

    From the words of others I have heard it is a headache. You need to download software and once you start doing this there are problems as far as I am concerned. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon to make money.

    Plus you need more gadgets (hardware). It is never ending to keep on top once you play games on the Internet. That is just my opinion.

    My kids have all as far as I am concerned and if I keep them in this life style they will never leave home. And I will never be a grandmother. Mind you the way males and females are going their own way I will be an old grandma. But I tell you, I am NOT taking care of their kids. (so I say) F**k, I hope they don't get into state care for then I will be doomed like the Grandparents of today. That sucks.

    I don't work for no return you know.

    When I left home with child and man I had nothing. Not even a washing machine. And I remember a girlfriends child saying to me, "You haven't got a video and your TV is black and white." We worked hard for what we got.

    Oh, I wouldn't want to necessarily go backwards. I think we live in an amazing age as far as science and technology goes...I just don't consider what we've done with families, marriage and gender relations as 'advancement'.

    I have a Wii and 360 at the moment, along with loads of other last gen systems. I'll get a PS3 eventually though.

    Hard drives are harddrives - they can be replaced with any size.

    A friend of mine has a 360 and he dropped a stupidly gigantic drive in his, filled it with films and games... and barely ever uses cd's anymore lol
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    It was a 65 year old lady who got me hooked. I don't play much because when I do, I have to clock the game. It becomes an obsession.

    You should see when I show up at midnight to get latest Final Fantasy game...keeping in mind that I most distictly do NOT look the part.

    I have a Wii and 360 at the moment, along with loads of other last gen systems. I'll get a PS3 eventually though.
    We have a PS2 right now (kind of a given with my Final Fantasy thing ) so we considered picking up an XBox 360 instead, but after comparing, decided to go with the PS3....although I'll admit to being a little biased.

    Re: PS3

    Haven't played on my PS2 in aaaaaaaaages. Had it for about 6 years, but barely bought any games for it really. Got my 360 hooked up to my new 40 inch 1080p HD TV at the moment, and I'm loving it.
