[QUOTE="spiderliam"]Too expensive to maintain mate. Plus, i'm on tour most of the time, so PC is not a viable option. PS3 is small and tourable, PC is not! I see what you mean about finding the glitched code, but surely there should be a directory where certain bits of code can be found??Frag_Maniac

Common myth, only upgradaholics get into the too expensive habit. There's also the fact that the PS3 needs a display, so you have to bounce from TV to TV, or carry a small monitor or something. There's a couple ways you can go small with PC. The first obvviously is more expensive, a gaming capable laptop and portable mouse.

The 2nd option however can be done quite affordably, a micro atx pc case with reasonable but not expensive gaming hardware. The same scenario applies display wise, bounce from TV to TV or carry a small monitor.

Today's PC gaming parts facilitate micro builds better than ever. There are a lot of small die, cool running low power consumption CPUs and GPUS available. I'm betting the GTX 660 will be a popular micro build GPU. Sneak peeks show it as being no longer than the GTX 670's PCB, which is very small.

I've even seen guys custom build gaming PCs using aluminum briefcases for shells, and it doesn't cost as much as you might think.

whoa! that's some handy info there, but still, i've got a limited amount of room for what i can carry, and i've only got space for one laptop, and being a long time mac user (for professional musical reasons), i've fell out with windows. It asks too many questions and is annoying. Plus, you can't get all the games you can get on PS3 on PC. All of my friends from home are on PS3, and not all of them could actually afford to upgrade to a PC, so playing with them online would be impossible. All in all, a PC is way more expensive than a PS3, so i think i'll stick with that for now. Thanks for the info though, might come in handy eventually!

Yeh, the latest skyrim update freezes the game if you're in water and your cross hair goes below the surface of the water!! Ridiculous!

Might i point out, before anyone comments that i'm being uncivilised, that i've been trying to get a proper answer from them for a month now, and the first time they offered nothing except "we're looking into it". The second time, they sent this; Hi, We sincerely apologize for the frustration and inconvenience. Please let us know the following information so we can look into the issue for you: -Gamertag/PSN ID -Gamertag/PSN email & password (voluntary, with consent) -Social Club Nickname -Social Club email -Link to your account (if possible) -Brief summary of the problem (disregards if already explained in your ticket) We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience. Kind regards, Brian Which i found to be rather dodgy...

The reason i'm posting this is because i don't think i'm the only one who is getting extremely angry at the fact that after a month, rockstar have STILL not released a fix for the bugs and glitches found in all copies max payne 3 on both PS3 and 360 (achievements such as 'unlimited bullet time' and 'bullet cam on every kill' not unlocking after completing certain requirements.) Basically, i want to rally as many people together as possible, if they are interested in publicly demanding either; A - an update on their progress on the fix B - The actual patch to fix the game to be released. I have posted the following message on their support website: "This is a disgrace. I know i'm not the only person bringing this up, and i know i'm not the only person who is pissed of at Rockstars futile attempts at trying to tell CUSTOMERS WHO SPENT A LOT OF F*****G MONEY ON YOUR BROKEN GAME that they're "looking into it." It does not take a month look for and to fix a piece of code which allows the game determine that a collection of all golds and platinum medals should unlock the unlimited bullet time, instead of just golds. It's a f*****g joke. I spent a lot of money on this game, money which i could have used for more useful things, but no. I spent a long time waiting and looking forward to the game, and then £50 to having a bit of fun with some unlimited bullet time and it doesn't work. It's annoying enough that developers find it acceptable to release games that need to be updated fixed as soon as you put it into your playstation, but to release a game full of bugs and glitches and then to not have made a patch for it after a month is a is a total discredit to the developers, and I hope they are ashamed of their failures. This message is being posted to as many gaming forums as possible to rally support for this unacceptable situation, and I will be keeping them updated of any responses that are sent this way. Yes the tone of this message is very angry. That's why there is swearing in it, and if you don't like swearing, why are you working for a company that makes games which contain such content? Get over it and give us an answer, since we are the ones wasting out hard earned money on YOUR wage/salary by buying your company's faulty products. We are entitled to a proper answer. A better answer than 'We're looking into it." What do you guys think? am I being too offensive and angry? I think i probably might be, but i think i and everyone else who is experiencing these bugs have a right to be pissed off. Especially since they patched the PC version within a week, yet there are still no updates for console owners.
