It always irks me when people can't appreciate something new because it differs too muchfromtradition. I've never understood it. Yeah, X was a beautiful game, butthe characters still had to take turns slapping eachother around...just like every other game in the series thats come before it. If that's what you love, then by all means play the old familiar games. You should know though: If the series continues withthis newgameplay model, it will survive... with orwithout you.

If you're having reservations about it, you might want to wait for it to come down in price. In-store price is $59.99, and I think the download price is $39.99. Buying it in a store will get youa bluetooth headset. There is no single-player to the game at all. If you're not big on multiplayer, then there's no reason to rush out and get it. Even at $40,it's stillpretty steep for an online only game.

On the other hand, if all you play is multiplayer, then there's no reason for you to wait. You won't find a better multiplayer experience on the PS3. If you've played the Battlefield series, or even the Battlefront series for that matter, you'll know what to expect from this game.

I think they're fun. So far I haven't gone back to a game I've already beaten just to get an achievement, but if I happen to hit a milestone while I'm playing through the first time it's kinda nice to know it. I do agree some of them are kind of lame. "Congratulations, you've made a player profile!" Achievements like those are half-hearted and thrown in just for the heck of it. But when someone sets a real challenge in the game, it's nice to have something to show for it.

I've got 22 games for my PS2... which is kind of funny because I have 30 for my PSP.

I've got an original PSP, and I've been thinking of trading it in for the new slim design. I was wondering if there have been any durability issues like buttons falling off or the screen cracking easily. I haven't heard anything bad, but I'd just like to know if I do end up switching that I am going to get my moneys worth. Also, am I correct in assuming that the Logitech hard case and the Nyko portable theater system are not compatible with the new design?

I'd save up and buy a new one. Honestly, I wouldn't trust anyone on the internet with the kind of money you're talking about. It'llbe so much better for you in the long run if you just wait.

It's all a matter of personal opinion. For me... I finished both of them, so from my point of view thats really saying something about both games. Both titles are hugely popular, and it really doesn't make sense to choose one over the other. Picking just one would deny you the awesome experience the other provides. Besides, they're both on the same console so share the love!

I've got all three systems, and I chose that answer for the poll. Including Heavenly Sword which came out last week, my PS3 library went to five games (Heavenly Sword, Warhawk, NBA 2k7, Virtua Fighter 5 and Resistance). They're all good games, but five isn't a lot. Considering I payed+$600 to get my PS3, and I use it more as a glorified PS2/DVD player, I'm a little dissapointed with it. If I had known Sony was going to drop the price on a the 60gig, I wouldn't have had a problem waiting to buy mine. Add the fact that Sony can't seem to make up it's mind as to what the PS3 is supposed to be (20gig and 60gig models nixed, new rumble controllers announced) and my confidence in Sony gets shaken a bit.

On top of all that, developers are having trouble optimizing games for the PS3. I've been trying to buy just PS3 games for a while now.Whenevera newgame comes out there seems to be a framerate issue (madden. the darkness), or a glitch (lair) or some delay (stranglehold)that makes it not worth my time or makes the 360 version the better choice. These problems aren't uncommon in a new console, but when Sony is trying to go head to head with another console that has been out for a year longer, it only makes their problems stand out. Instead of rallying behind it's deveolpers to iron out every wrinkle possible before a games launch, they bring out new rumble controllers...which makes it seem like Sony doesn't have its priorities in order.

Given more time the console will get better. In the mean time, early adopters like myself are going to feel a little burned when we have to invest more money, in what wasalready asteep investment, just to keep up with Sonys changes.

Also, lets stop the "gs biased" topics please. I can find topics in every board on this site that scream gs is in someones pocket (Nintendo, Microsoft, even Sony). Lets grow up please and not scream bloody murder when you think gs is doingyour consolea disservice.
