    I don't use the browser either...other than the rare google searches or if I need to look something up on youtube.

    They eventually got one again for Netflix...I didn't stop them then...their new one is a slim and they got it when it went down to $299.

    Point is, I think it's donkey balls $#@!ass, I'm sure everyone else here does too but that doesn't stop people from looking at it as a feature.

    I told them that they should get a laptop instead...but they don't want the hassle to hook it up to their TV every time they wanna watch something and they don't wanna dedicate it just for their TV...funnily enough they only wanted their PS3 for one feature, go figure.
    We have DirecTV, which has Youtube built in, so we use it on there. We never turn the receiver off, so it's always ready to go when I turn the TV on.

    Yea they have a set top box now that offers that and they also have another blu ray player that has a built in youtube (I'm not sure about the second one) but this was back in 2009 when these things weren't mainstream yet.

    ^^ I totally agree !

    It's great to see positivity, especially on the Sony side of things because lets make it clear, Sony hating is the trend this gen.

    Sony have done many things wrong this gen, but they also done a lot of things right and GAMES is one of them.

    Sony didn't do anything that great in regarding to gaming from my perspective. The motion control is just borrowed from Nintendo, and Xbox has all the good exclusives this generation like Mistwalker, etc.

    lol Sony were playing with motion control prototypes while the Wii was JUST being conceived. They had come up with the webcam and wand using a sphere before the time that Nintendo came up with their motion controller.

    Their drive of 3D has made the industry take notice, and now the quality and excellence is awesome and studios and publishers are seeing it and following suit (Ubisoft, Rocksteady, Irrational Games etc). They are releasing more exclusives this side of the generation which is the best side to be owning on as game engines and programming skills are at their best (Uncharted 3).

    While some people $#@! all over it, I think it's great what Sony and Valve are doing with Steam and PSN, and while PSN isn't the online service that XBL is, its open nature gives us MMOs and other benefits.

    Nintendo beat both Xbox and Playstation to the punch in motion gaming, regardless of how long their never-to-release prototypes were sitting in te R&D labs. Motion gaming is nothing to enjoyable aside from Resident Evil 5, imo. Sony never introduced anything to gaming that wasn't already here.

    Sooo..the inovations that you like the PS3 for came about about 2 years ago?
    What did you like about the PS3 pre-3d?

    And you make it sounds like 3d is exclusive to Sony somehow.
    Despite all the BS about "Xbox cant do it" its just as capable, and in fact has done it without as much fanfare.

    While Sony might have been bold enough to push 3d (and we all know why -which was silly really given how bad thier LCD's are doing at the moment, but hay its a niice idea prop one money loosin gbusiness iwht another), you really have these guys to thank for your decent 3d gaming these days...

    Pre 3D it was the Move, and then Sharpshooter. These two products are what got me into the FPS genre, the level of immersion was awesome, to actually hold a rifle like device, and to pull a trigger to fire is awesome.

    Of course 3D isn't exclusive to Sony, but no one really gave a $#@! about it until Sony picked up the ball. MS doesn't care, and they are just leaving it up devs to implement it, but xbox owners with 3DTVs will be treated to awesome 3D gaming from the likes of Batman and AC thanks to Sonys drive, and will likely get Bioshock and other titles in 3D too.

    And whatīs your point ? He prefer the ps3 so do I and therefor we are members of a ps3 forum. You donīt even own a ps3 but still posts like a rabid dog in the ps3 sections. All you seem to do is to trying to downplay anything that has to do with the ps3.

    I still dont think the masses give a $#@! about to be honest, I know its leading edge stuff etc, and its most definatly a bonus for those who have 3DTV's, but as with most leaidng edge stuff, it affects few.I mean thats not to say I wouldnt mind a 3DTV, but we purchased a LCD TV just on 3 years ago, and I really aint going to invest in another one for some time.
    I definatly give Sony props for pushing it, even if it was really to sell TV's, thats thier perogative, even if its kinda backfired on them somewhat.

    As for the sharpshooter, if you think that great you should have been around for the old light guns.....

    Downplaying it by quesitonging what he found attractive about the PS3 prior to a very recent introduciton? Hardly "downplaying it". Just curious.
    Itīs getting old Mynd, drop it !
    I didnt downplay anything, I didnt attack him for his choice, at most merely pointed out that 3d isnt an exclusive to Sony.
    I didnt say anything about more excluisive this end of the generaiton because I agree with him.

    I can't even play Uncharted or Batman in 2D anymore. These games are arousing a LOT of interest in gamers though, I have been seeing people wanting 3DTVs left right and center across different forums and youtube. I don't really care for wide scale adoption of 3D right now, as long as Sony and others are making 3D content I will have my need satiated.

    The glasses are such a non issue for me. I wear headphones when I play BF3, I wear glasses when I play 3D. When you play U3 or Batman 3D, glasses are the last thing on my mind. It is such a non issue and it's a shame that people let glasses deter them from this tech. Also, $#@!ty graphics and textures are a thing of the past, as clearly proven by 2 of the 3 games in my sig.

    Junkie is an understatement haha. It's not the POP OUT IN YO FACE aspect of 3D (which we don't really get in games) but the depth perception between the character, the level and its objects etc, and cutscenes have an added pop that looks really nice.

    And as I mentioned above, the days of quality loss in 3D is seemingly over, at least when done correctly. If AC pulls of U3 and BM quality I'm gonna be in heaven.

    noone called you out, i just think you need some perspective.

    you're welcome to be enthusiastic. just as i am welcome to tell you your descriptions consist more of meaningless PR bull$#@! than actual substance.

    watch:

    "With more sales worldwide than any other HD console the Xbox 360 is the industries premier games machine delivering fun and exciting gaming experiences and industry leading graphics while pioneering game enhancing features like 3D and motion controls, as well as being your all in one media player, allowing you to view all your favorite movies and stream a whole host of digital content right into your home!"

    sound familiar? like i said before, its fundamentally the same console but without a browser and bluray capabilities. two features, one more sigificant than the other. all the superfluous adjectives and exclamation marks in the world aren't going to make your points any more grounded in reality.

    let me skip the bull for you:

    "the ps3: better games, a better media player"

    express your love and enjoyment of the console by all means, but if you could tone down the unnecessary cliches and platitudes it would be appreciated.

    he may well be insulted, but i wasn't calling him out as a fanboy.

    and there's nothing wrong with saying that his description of the PS3 and its position in the industry was closer to meaningless PR bull$#@! than actual reality. i'm not saying he doesn't have a point, or isn't right, i'm saying he phrases it in a way that sounds like meaningless PR bull$#@!. i get through the first sentance with it's 17 adjectives and exclamation marks and it wears a little thin.

    i agree, sony has the best games and offers the best features - i do most of my gaming on the ps3. but rehashed excitment doesn't exactly help the discussion of any topic. if you like something, get to the point. if i wanted PR speak i'd be emailing sony.
