    I said I would ease up and not buy all the consoles of this generation, but at approx. 5:30 after the swipe of my debit card I realized one thing. I lied. MGS4 80GB $500 PS3 Bundle. Just thought I'd share that I am indeed not strong enough to resist Metal Gear.

    PS. $500 and no HDMI or component cables?! Cheap bastards. (P.P.S. But MGS4 and Dual Shock 3... I guess that makes up for it)

    Congrats, welcome to the PSN community!
    I'm about to get a 360 too myself. I'm just waiting for a price drop to grab an Arcade bundle.

    But I wouldn't get a Wii even if somebody would pay me to do it.

    Long response to postscript

    Are any of the consoles modded? I found buying games for PS3 and 360 alone costs me too much.
    So I modded my 360 but still buy retail copies. There aren't too many good games coming out in Summer compared to Christmas season.

    Remember, if you want to mod your Arcade 360 you'll have to solder a chip inside since Arcades have a different drive [​IMG]

    Just a little update and thought it wasn't worth a new topic.

    Finished MGS4. Of course the cutscenes drew on a tad long, but it didn't really bother me as I love the Metal Gear story. In other words, the game was fucking awesome.

    BTW, I don't need an HDMI cable because I don't have a monitor that can be hooked up with it in my room. It's a no-namish one so an HDMI-DVI cable does not work.
    But on the bright side, I use that HDMI-DVI cable downstairs on a 51'' rear projection TV... so horay! [​IMG]

    So.... Topic shift!

    I'm done MGS4, I can play online and will probably do so later. But besides that, any cool things I can do with the PS3 for now? And yes, I do plan on installing a linux distribution onto it sometime in the future.

    upgrade your hard drive, you will need to sooner or later as game installs demand a lot of space.
    get a usb or wireless keyboard (typing messages and browsing the PSN store with the controller WILL get tiresome also get a mouse if you want to use the internet browser or play unreal tournament 3)
    get a wireless bluetooth headset if you like online gaming.
    get a DS3 if you haven't already.
    if you want to use your PS3 for media capabilities such as watching dvd movies (upscaled), divx, music and so on get the official sony blu ray remote.
    oh and get a duster or lint cloth for your PS3 it's a huge dust magnet unfortunately.

    Second the HD upgrade, and start filling it up. Download Linux on it (then delete only to find out it sucks atm), try movies, PSN games and whatnot. MGO should keep you busy, it's my favorite PS3 online game right now, even better than CoD4! Be careful about cleaning your PS3, using regular clothing scratches it up. Use something like velvet.

    Oh yeah, and get Planet Earth.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Hmmm, I'm still thinking about getting a PS3, but I just can't afford it. Even if I scraped up the money, I'd have to buy all the games, it's too much. [​IMG]
    I so want to play R&C Future as well, it looks awesome.

    HAHA no HD on a PS3/X360 should be a SIN to all man kind. My K/D goes down the **** hole when I play on my friends X360 with composite hook ups.

    @ All the SD users. Yes I'm being an elitist prick. I know it so you don't have to point it out. kthx
