    Linear PCM vs. Bitstream Audio Questions (of sorts)

    I hope to God I am in the right place here..... I have been doing a bit of research and find that the general consensus is that Linear PCM (LPCM) audio is the way to go when it comes to playing BR movies and games in my PS3. From what I understand, if the PS3 is set to LPCM in its audio...

    Quick Question: 40GB PS3 and Backwards Compatibility

    Since there is a big uproar about the 40 GB unit and the BC issues, I am still a bit confused. Is there no BC whatsoever on the 40 gigger, or is it just VERY limited? And why is it that important? I never had BC on my old Nintendo systems and that was never an issue. Or is basically the uproar...

    Dual Shock 3 - No Haptic Feedback

    Looks like the new DualShock controller will be the same as the old tech. Nothing new. So i wonder if we will need to but a new controller again down the road if/when the new haptic feedback from Immersion is put into a controller.

    Why are people still making the 'In Game XMB' threads?

    It seems like everyone is freaking out like they arent going to make this feature. Its already in HOME and I believe they implemented it in the Resistance update, if I am not mistaken. Currently it allows access only to your friends list, but thats a start and it proves that it is already a...

This is due in part to sexyness and the immense popularity of the Tomb Raider series through gameplay and scope of the adventures. With Heavenly Sword about to land in the next number...
