    I play Blur. Its a great game. Feel free to add me if you want a game but be aware taht I am in Australia so lag and timezones may not make it very easy to play. Gamertag is Edgedancer91.

    weren't you the one I recommended to get Blur during a topic about what game to get?
    In any case, I don't mind playing with people from different areas as long as they don't lag horribly (example, I can play against some Euro players, but there are quite a few other euro players that have TOO LOW bandwidth that they end up jumping around in game). I'll add ya anyways.

    You must be thinking of someone else. I always wanted to get Blur. No question about it.

    Hmm.....I might look into the PC version. I have an Intel Q6700 with a Radeon 4850 hooked up to a 52" HDTV. That should be enough to play it, right?

    Goes to look up PC requirements......

    I wouldn't even with a powerful system. Reasons:
    - Hackers are apparently rampent on the PC version
    - It was apparently a quick port so its sluggish on systems that otherwise should handle it

    PS3 version has more issues:
    - Freezing issue
    - dropped connections
    - Sometimes invalid saving thus restart is needed (SP only)

    So if you want, go ahead for the PC version, but I'd wait or get it for 360 if possible. If I had a PS3 as well, I'd look further into what they are talking about.

    ah... so either you didn't grab the $10 coupon for Rewards Zone OR they actually looked at the $20 coupon closely because some people were apparently getting away with getting the game at $10 new from best buy [​IMG]
