E4G: When you are arriving early at the Hong Kong International airport, there is a good way to pass the time.
Only 14 stations? Not going to amuse a lot is it :P
Especially with the population of Hong Kong.
Ohhh please, I went to Hong Kong several times in the past three years, this is two years old lol, actually, I believe the first system was put in on the launch. A few of them behind the elevators don't get turned on anymore though, it created too much of a group where they didn't want it. Safety rules and all. Anyway, when I first saw it, I shat bricks too. lol
I remember getting stranded in HK Airport for 7 hours to get back to the US. Anyway, HK airport is great. It's basically a mall and a ton of people shopping. I'm guessing the PS3s are in like an arcade section?
Now I have an excuse for the Chinese Officials when I miss my flight the next time I'm in Hong Kong.
I spent a few hours in HK airport when heading back from New Zealand to the UK. i really could have done with a bit of entertainment on that stop over.
PS3 it only does... delay your flight because the pilots are busy playing it.:P
It will be a good flight delay if the pilots are willing to do 2 player :P
or some LAN so everybody can join in :P
Or having it set on the PSN and then versing the whole population of Hong Kong. If only there were a game to fit that population lol.
I don't think it will be Mag 3, maybe Mag 8. Just Imagine 256 players in the MW2 map RUST, LMAO. That would be epic.
Good way to vent your air rage.
The pilots should rape in Warhawk lmfao.
Tower: "American Airlines AA-234-0215, you don't have landing clearance! I repeat, you DON'T have landing clearance!" Pilot: "Screw this, I'm going down NOW! I gotta get my fourth Platinum Trophy!!!"
has two booths with Motorstorm Pacific Rift (i think) it was 7 am but there were people on them constantly =P smarrt
Yup saw it in Paris. There were a lot of systems and a lot of people were using it pretty early in the morning.
They have PS3 stations. But they are demo consoles and they're VERY limited. At least they can play the installed demos.
WHAT!!!!!!!!!!! The new Hong Kong airport? WTF!!!!!!!!!!! That airport is an empty piece of sh!te!!!!! The last time I went to New Zealand (11 times when I'm 13!!!!) we had to stop of there! And it was empty! NOTHING WAS THERE!!!!!! It was HUGE and it had pretty impressive arcitecture but it was empty!!!!! Japanese people are such nerds that they would prefer to put a PS3 in an empty airport rather than fill it with normal stuff!
Empty Airport = Tons of time for you to play. If it was full, you would just have like 2 mins of playing. I live in England, Birmingham and when NFS undercover was being showed at our city centre, PACKED, i only had like 1 minute of playing before a person said, 'ok you had enough, let me play'.
HK airport was full when i was there. People seem to treat it like a mall.
Japanese people aren't from Hong Kong!
LOL i was about to say that, wow Hong Kong is in China or more exact China Tapai.. i think thats how you spell it.
HK in Japan? .......DO'H! http://www.freewebs.com/sim...
what exactly do Japanese have to do with filling an airport in Hong Kong? anyway, it's an awesome space to be in and anyone who is interested in architecture should visit at least once. I wish the PS3s were there when I stopped through a few years ago.
Japanese people and Hong Kong airports??? oh dear... i worry about the quality and intelligence of our posters these days. :S
um.... Taipei is a whole different country (depends on who you listen to) that's on a completely different island. HK became part of China again in 1997, and it was a "British Colony" before then for about 100 years. Just for your info. Geesh... what are they teaching at the schools now-a-days?? LOL I know, I'm old..... @5 HK is the central hub for business transactions in Southeast Asia for a looooong time, so the people that go through there daily probably rivals New York City. So, I'm not sure what you're talking about it being empty? Maybe it was just a late night or early morning while you were there?
I had to register to N4G just to correct you... Actually Taipei is the capital of Taiwan which theoretically part of China but that depends on who you listen to, just as you said.
you're right, it was a typo on my part.
you registered JUST to correct him? Bubbles for the effort =P
there known to explode all over the place. they cant afford that in a airport
I wonder how many people got arrested for carrying an Xbox 360 into an airport. :P
Ah man that is just so damn cool. I just wish our U.S. Airports would put PlayStation Consoles at airlines or any other one so we can all play it. Cause I'm usually tired of carrying my portable PSP, or Ds Lite.
Isn't the whole point of having a portable system the portability :P
Apparently somepeople are terrified of flying thus after spending 10 minutes playing the goofstation3 you would rather face a plane than hold an ergonomically designed knightmare of a control pad in your hands any longer....... The BluRay station3 - it only sends you to sleep
you try too hard.
and maybe i'm reading it wrong but, the article said..."International Airport has 14 free-of-charge PlayStation 3 game poles that are preloaded with Final Fantasy XIII, Avatar, Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed 2, etc." ey word it PRELOADED!!! Does that mean the games are all on the HDD and you choose one like a demo? If so, this just means that with a hack, we may be able to save out PURCHASED games right to the HDD. I have a 500gb in mine so it might fit 1/3 of my games on it. Quote taken from www.engadget.com
Just playing Tekken in my spare time. Then watching neverending ads for Gran Turismo 5 and LittleBigPlanet. -End statement
