Then I remembered the annoying file structure that your MemoryStick had to use for the PSP to recognise anything on it. Sure enough, when I put my photos in a folder called Picture and my music in a folder called Music, the PS3 miraculously found all my media. Surely Sony could just convince the PS3 to search the whole of an external drive, rather than implement this annoying and tedious file structure on us again? Perhaps in the next firmware update.

So basically it's a matter of what game devs can eek out of each console, which will be interesting and certainly pretty cool for us :D
Although PlayStation 3 hardware will be region locked for Blu-ray discs, none of the discs currently available are region coded -- so you should be able to play any disc on any PS3, for the time being at least.
Originally Posted by devdevil85Well, I know, but it's kind of hard to compare when Gears of War is exclusive and I've never had a chance to play Las Vegas on the PS3, so I don't know about that, but all I was saying was that those games I metioned looked pretty much the same or better on the PS3, so I feel there is head-room for the PS3.
Originally Posted by devdevil85I disagree. I think integrating Blu-Ray into the PS3 was the catalyst in terms of getting the ball rolling on the format, and with PS3's outselling HD-DVD players, I would expect Blu-Ray to only get a bigger audience through the console in the next few months/year.
Originally Posted by devdevil85On the other hand, Sony has integrated the Blu-Ray drive into the PS3 along with having movies already out in-stores and the net and many more on the way, giving the public trust in the format and the knowledge that a company like Sony is backing it. Considering Sony is THE home entertainment company of the world I feel Blu-Ray has better odds.

Originally Posted by devdevil85I don't know how to compare the consoles in terms of raw power, just because anything on the internet is scewed or biased in some fashion, but I do think the PS3 will be able to match the 360 and even surpass it in the future. To go against your statement kempez, even in PC's you can have the fastest GPU, but with a slower CPU, the GPU will be somewhat crippled. I don't know if that statement is relative to the 360 or even to the PS3, but it is possible. Now I may be wrong in my statements, but you will have to prove me wrong through some form of justification/evidence, not just in terms of GPU architecture but everything else including the CPU, Harddrive, RAM, etc.

There is a list of the Blu-Ray titles which are region locked.
From the looks of that list the region restrictions are a mess.

However, it suffers from a huge flaw in that it doesn't play HD DVD's properly, and hence isn't certified by the HD DVD forum. The problem it has is that it can't show any of the disc's interactive menus or content, instead relying on the player's own internal menus.

An a Blu-ray drive for my computer so I can rip my Blu-ray disks and re-encode them to 700MB AVIs. :D

What was that, sony say we can't import, I didn't post any links...

I rip DVDs to 1.4 or 2.1 GB. I don't know yet what a good size for HD content is.
