ITWire (Australia) has posted an article asking wether gamers should buy a PAL Playstation 3 even with inferior backwards compatibilty. They believe many will purchase it but looking at facts why perhaps they shouldn't.
on the PS3 at or around it's release date. Otherwise just look at the game list and decide if it's okay for you.
I admire your optimism mate. Although as I see it, BC's only part of the problem. It's being a test pilot for the new hardware that's the real bugbear. Personally, I think that Sony are making a really big mistake changing the hardware specs half way through the global launch cycle. It could easily prove to be a total disaster come launch day!
We have a saying in Australia. Ken Oath !
I'm having the console hat trick. BC. = DON'T CARE, They will make sure the big games are covered. We have a lot of good games at release + the new features of the 2.0 firmware, things are starting to look good on the PS3 front. Now I just have to get readjusted to the analogue stick placement.. @Bathyj: Ken Oath !???? WTF??? - I'm Australian and i've never heard of that saying?
Really? You never heard it? Its short for F**ken Oath, as in "F**ken Oath I'm getting a PS3". I apoligise for the language to the younger readers joining us tonight.
but sounds like something an aussie would say. Just to set one thing straight with americans we do not say "shrimp on the barbie" we call them prawns. Also Fosters is not very popular (but that depends on which state your in)
prawns on the barbie, then. Interesting.
Updates with sort any problems that BC might have.
Europe should boycot the PS3, for getting a retarded version and pay more. All buy a 360 + a Wii, spend the same as the PS3 and have triple the fun! That would be hitting Sony's arrogance hard. So "Should you buy a PAL PS3?". The answer is no. If it is a failure, they might be pushed to include the PS2 hardware again for full BC
BC will not make or break the PS3, just as it didn't with the 360
Hehe themart and his little campaign. I bet he's got a tshirt saying "die Sony die" on it...and carry's around his 360 at his boosom. All I can say is stop being a mardy c*nt
After all these new positive announcement for PS3 (PAL), Im still getting it. - at least 1000 games BC with PS3 - PS1 and PS2 HD upscaled - DVD HD upscaled - cheaper than USA - download Tekken 5: dark resurrection - free GTHD downloads And so much more ;)
Great games to be released...new features for the ps3 like backgrounds. New online service with avatars, movies. More announcements for new games, new trailers. Cheap next-gen games in the UK (I'm so surprised they are the same price as some ps2 games! That's crazy). Lots to be excited about. Lots to use my student loan on...
