It varies quite some. Game save are nothing even on a 40GB system, but some game have an initial install that helps reduce loading times after the first time you run the game. These also vary.

Videos can be downloaded in multiple resolutions. 1080p 720p or SD so obviously this will factor in.

Game demos really depend on the game. On average around 1GB. Some have gone to 2 and some less than 1.

Choosing between the 40 and 80GB really come down to if your planning to keep these download of a long time. Videos of game trailer and movie clips have no real need to be saved forever. Saved games takes up very little and I personnally haven deleted any save. A game demo will only be on your system until you decide you like it (full purchase) or not. You will want to hang on to download games though. Warhawk, Super Stardust HD etc. Even though when you purchase these they get added to a list that allows you to re-download them without paying again. So removing them to make space is no real big deal. This sometimes leads to downloading a newer verision of a game too.

With more time and extra downloadable content being made available, also services like PlayStation Home I thing it would be best to get a big HDD. Bare in mind that you can upgrade the HDD at a later time so your not really limited to 40 or 80GB.

Warhawk can be fun but is easily out done but Call of Duty 4. I too am getting Uncharted for Christmas, the demo was fantastic. Haze for me is a hit or miss. With alot of shooters around it need something new. You should still try some of the original launch titles. MotorStorm and Resistance: Fall of Man are still fun. Especially with the new DLC released. Burnout Pardise should be on your list too.

I strongly suggest you hook you PS3 up to the net and download some free demos first. There are also some cool little downloadable games. Super Stardust HD is one of the best.

The answer is yes. Any computer store should supply this cable. You can also connect to the net from your PS3 via Wi-Fi without having to purchase additional hardware for the PS3. Just a Wi-Fi enabled router.

Same problem. Unable to send any invites. Im also suspecting nobody can join themselves. I did hear about the new and improved Unions. I swear the admin said the end of the year. Im guessing they have decided to leave all problems alone then just replace the system.

I would like to know how so many bugs keep popping up. I ran a site for quite a while and know that the only reason somthing goes bad is if you mess the code up at some point. So surly you have been fideling arround with the union system for it to bust.

If you read my post you would have read that GameSpot will supply the emblem to the people I request it be sent to as opposed to jest allowing it to any Union Leader. I am indeed asking for some sort of system and permission and also doubt they will accept but you never know until you ask. Im sure flooded is a bit of an exaduration. For a start many unions dont need emblems. Common Wordage is User Submited unlike any other GS Union. Just thought there should be a drive to get people submitting new and fresh content at a higher quality than they usually would. A half hearted review or sloppy video is the last thing you want to see. If people aim for a position on CW then perhaps they will put in a little more effort. I'm trying to improve the quality of iser content.

Hey GameSpot. I have recently set up Common Wordage. It's a Sony / PlayStation brand orientated union driven by GameSpot user submited content. Sort of like a 'by the user for the user' GameSpot SoapBox.

With this all being driven by user submistions I thought they ought to be rewarded. I was wondering if there was a way I could reward contibuters with an official GameSpot Emblem for their profiles. Of course this is no small matter and I don't expect you to give me the control over the thing. Perhaps I could send the appropriate username(s) of contributers to whoever is in control of emblems. Not every submition will get on Common Wordage so it will definatly be used sparingly. Similar to the SoapBox you run.

I know doing this for a union will probably be the first time and surly everyone else will want to follow suit, but is you look over thee union hopefully you will see I have put considerably more time and effort into making it.

Any help or official reply from GameSpot is appriciated.

Nice idea. I did try to implement something-like that using div tags in my blog header box but it does not allow divs so i could not place the images where i wanted.

I like the option in the prefs. Cant stand it when people go all overboard. Perhaps expand it a little though. So instead of a total ban of seeing side art there could be multiple options. Like Only show friends side art or allow gamespot to post the advertisement art they run from time to time on the home page.

EDIT: Apologies for bumping this. I found a link in a recent post and failed to notice the last posted date. Sorry.

Union Leader Chosen Emblem.
The Leader of unions should be able to upload an image to use as an emblem for all its members. So if you join a union that unions' emblem is shown on your vitals tab in your profile.
