PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

Recommended Posts

I picked up Ratchet and Clank for £12 at Cex (exchanged Tiger Woods and Stranglehold for £15).

 

So far it brings back great memories of the first R&C I owned on the PS2, quality game although I never got round to the others, probably just as well because it's pretty damn similar. Cool stuff though, hopefully it's as lengthy as the first.

What a bastard the PS3 is for connecting wireless, apparently the PS3 doesn't like WPA2 security. Just wouldn't connect no matter how many times I tried it. Had to reset the network and then downgrade it to WEP to get it connected. After a bit of googling, it seems like an error quite a lot have had.

 

Alright mate,

 

You could try turning off the DHCP server and assigning the IP, DNS etc... manually.

 

That's what I did and it works better than before.

 

Don't know if it would make any difference, but you could try it.

 

The only problem is, you would need to put these settings in manually for all wi-fi devices you currently use.

 

Just ask me if you need any help.

I got on, just had to make a few network changes. It's a pretty widespread problem the one I encountered, just suprised Sony haven't sorted it yet.

Is there no way to get your PS3 original theme to stay black? Just seems weird that black isn't on there as a colour.

You could keep changing the time on ur console so it is constantly set at night, lol.

 

I found that weird as well but as far as i'm aware u can't. Sorry.

Incase anyone is interested there is an Alone in the Dark: Inferno demo up on the US PSN store. Can't really see all the supposed 'improvements' that have been made for the PS3 port, but I do think the graphics look slightly better (if a little jaggy).

Here!

 

FFS what a bargain. This is why I should wait a few weeks around this time of year when buying games. Everyone is competing for your christmas dinero.

I'm not even into football and I've picked it up. I enjoy messing about on the demo enough to justify £20 for it!

Come on PS3 owners, buy Guitar Hero: World Tour off me! It's annoying me just sitting here on my desk. £20. Can;t say fairer than that!

 

In other news, got my first play on Resistance 2 today. Not very far yet but it already seems to have lost that spark it had. I can't put my finger on it, it just doesn't feel as polished (and review code should be near enough final product). Plus i had to change the control setup because it was awful. I cant remember if the first one was the same, but i hate games where you shoot and zoom with R1 and L1 not R2 and L2.

 

Will give it the benefit of the doubt for now.

Jav, the game is infinitely better than the first, and the controls are also better. It is immense.

Surprised no one has mentioned this but there seems to be a new firmware out, and curiously it's 2.52. I swear we just got 2.50 (which going back a few pages, seems to prove me right) so have i missed something? Was there an invisible update? And damn its taking its sweet time. I want to play Dead Space!
