So has anyone got the new slim PSP yet? Is there a noticeable/worth getting difference between the old and the new one?

I keep going backwards and forwards on whether to get another PS3 and to add more confusion I dont know whenther to get a black console so I can play UK Blu-Ray dvds or go for the better looking white version but then I will have to import my Blu-Rays. I hate it when I have to make these kinds of decisions.

Don't import, you will regret it.

 

Well the console itself is in the UK and its slightly cheaper than the UK models.

I thought Blu-Ray was region free?

 

Games are region free (I think), movies aren't.

HD-DVD is not Blu Ray.

 

Where are the white ones Adam, Maughn Micro's?

 

Nah although there could be in stock there. There are people selling them on ebay in the uk. Has Rob decided if hes getting one yet?

 

Any of you importing Unreal Tourny III? Its out this week in yankee land.

I've got interested in the PS3 all of a sudden (The Wii isn't really doing everythign i want) and have decided to get one for Christmas :D

 

I was thinking Uncharted, COD4 and Ratchet for the games, but i don't really know.

 

Anyway to my question. Which would be better to use, component (I only have one and the Wii uses it) or HDMI-DVI cabled thing. I just don't know how the audio works with the HDMI-DVI though.

HDMI-DVI

 

You'd either need separate audio cables or a cable that splits the HDMI in to Video and Sound

Does anyone know if the White PS3 will ever get released in Europe?

 

As that would be the day I purchase one, all my other consoles are white, 360, Wii, DS and my soon to be White PSP.

 

Would just go well together!

I preordered this a few weeks back from VGP!

 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for offline multiplayer and BOTS! Will it have them?

 

I really want Uncharted now! I'm counting down the days till Christmas where i can start this exceptional game! :yay:

Yeah I think it has BOTS in it. Some guy on G-Faqs was on about how they trash talk to you or something like that.

 

Heres a preview.
