Congratulate me on my new PS3 (13)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-01-09 16:01 ID:mW2gw3C4

Hey everyone, I was at Costco the other day, and I saw a ps3 with Spiderman 3, and extra controller, and an extra game for 500 CAD, so I though, what the heck, and bought it! I already have a Wii (I lolled at the giant stack of PS3's). I was torn between Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, and Folklore, but I settled on Folklore b\c my friends already had the other 2.

So far, I'm pretty impressed with it. the internet is in some ways better and in some ways worse than the Wii's. I like being able to switch through multiple pages, for example, but i was a little dissapointed at not being able to zoom in and out in small increments. I DO however LARGELY appreciate the capability to download movies, demos, etc and save them. It used to be kinda annoying when i wanted to stream a video on the wii, only to have the file format not supported...

oh, btw, i got the 40 gb. I was more than a little miffed that PS2 compatability got nixed in the 40 gig version, (my friend got the 60 gig) because it seemed silly to me, but at least I still have my ps2 (i lolled at being able to play PS1 but not PS2).

One final thing I noticed (and perhaps this is only in the folklore game) is that text is REALLY SMALL on a regular tv. I mean, i have better than perfect vision and even I had a hard time distinguishing some of the letters! not to mention the dark purple important words on a darker purple background... anyway, that's just nit-picking: I'll have to see what the text is like in other games. I was just wondering if maybe sony was trying to push their LCD's and Plasmas?

Anyway, those were my first thoughts, thanks for listenin, hope to play some of you soon on like warhawk or something!

Brown, Sepia, Dark, Bloom, Gaussian Blur, and VGCats.

It looks that way because the games are designed for 720p or above. Says so on the back of the games. The higher the res the more illegible the the text but the sharper on a HDTV. I have a PS3. I love it.

small text

Usually, the higher the res, the smoother you can make the text. I am yet to see a valid reason to make it smaller.

This is a videogame tradition. You have a new technology, you are supposed to use it, no matter what.

Right, so let's use it to make smoother text.
