Need a HDMI cable to use the new upscaling feature. I ordered one off Ebay when I bought the console back in March. Don't spose any of you guys have seen it? cos I havn't.

They have been very good with the PSP, and I assume they will be equally as good with the PS3 WRT firmware updates. Just, please, for the love of god, release some good games. Virtua Tennis had the potential to be great, but the realism isn't there. I mean.. as if Maria Sharapova wears knickers...

Where's Gran Turismo 5?!? Not the 10 cars 1 track rubbish... the real thing. I've been waiting for GT4 Mobile on the PSP for years, and then they said they had postponed it for GT5 on PS3. So where the hell is it?!?

Where's Metal Gear? Where's Final Fantasy? Where's Resident Evil?

Instead were stuck with Madden NFL, as if anyone in this country is interested in that, some rapper/pimp game about black people killing eachother, and all the games I played on the PC a year ago.

I'm disapointed with how long GTs taking. It's ridiculous. Christmas 2008? For the love of god....

These are the games that made the Playstation, that made the PS2. Seriously, people don't buy a console because its specced to hell (except me), they buy it because of the games it can play.

GT, FF, and MGS have some of the biggest cult followings in history. Most movies don't even compare to these franchises.

GT isn't just another driving game, its THE driving game. Its the benchmark that every other driving game is compared to.

And if it comes out without an E30 M3, 2002 Turbo, and 335i in it, I'm going postal. I DONT WANT 400 different Nissan Skyrines and crapvias.

Of the games that are available for both portals, how does game play compare between PS3 and PC?

The new firmware is much improved on the old one and has just about made up for the lack of hardware scaler chip, as not only does it upscale it also downscales as i can now play casino royal blu-ray disc at 720p

The networked media player works ok with wmp11 but could do with some work as a) its slow b) you can only play one thing at a time, you have to go back to xmb to select the next and when you do that playback stops.


As for regards with GT, i was led to believe that the mini game we've got so far was going to be expanded over time as they wrote more content for it so extra tracks / cars etc. generally filling the gap between now and the new one.
GT4 started working with version 1.7 though its slightly worse peformance wise with 1.8 (more sound jitter at times) it does look better in 720p

Dsio, im running via hdmi cable, and have the full scaling now

it depends on the game, if its a ps3 title then no there wont be any difference. its older ps1/2 games which see the benefit from upscaling
