Are you wanting game recommendations or movie recommendations?

I felt the same way about Resistance and GT. I really missed the rumble in GT though.

BTW, how's the PQ on Layer Cake?

Well I see you already have Casino Royale and The Prestige and you have Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Departed on HD DVD. From the 15 or so that I own Stranger than Fiction and Kingdom of Heaven along with those other four are my favorites. Crank gets extremely high marks in PQ, but I only recommend it if you like movies that are fast paced non stop action, but really weak in plot and very weak in acting.

As for games, PS3 is still kinda weak. I enjoy Resistance every once in a while. I never thought it was a 5 star game, but still a pretty nice game. The single player is pretty challenging and the multiplayer can get pretty insane. Other than that I have Fight Night R3 which is pretty fun and MLB 2k7 which I am most likely trading in when MLB 07: The Show comes out next month. I rented Motorstorm and was not all too impressed. Some people rave about it, but I don't know how you can put out a racing game without 2 player split screen and the constant exploding gets annoying. For the time being, I am playing God of War 2....very nice game.

edit: Oh yea, and for $19.99, Tekken 5: DR is pretty damn good.

It is very good although not the most amazing....but not much grain except the beginning but that is for style points

Default aww I did better...

I got my PS3 for $390.00. That included shipping to an APO Address. I believe the system was $370 or $380 and the shipping was $10 or $20. This is the 60GIG version. I am very happy with the PS3, infact it has been my determing factor in the HD war. I have the 360 add on as well, but I find myself buying Blu over HD discs if the movie is released on both formats. I rarely buy HD DVD movies anymore, Blu-ray has been the format for me, not that I hate or dislike HD DVD, its just obvious there are more titles for Blu-ray and the PS3 supports HDMI 1.3, where the 360 supports no HDMI, I refuse to buy the new 360 that will be comming with HDMI, I would rather just buy a stand alone HD player (which I will hold off on, I see Blu-ray leading the fight right now) I do have both versions, I will support both versions, but Blu-ray has more titles on my shelf then the HD DVD titles (and I had the HD addon before the PS3)
