Does anyone still play the wii? lol

neofury* 08-16-2011 11:29 AM

Regarding the guy who had streaming problems on the 360 I had problems too hence why I just gave up and decided to move my ps3 to the other room anytime I want to stream rather than have the convenience of my 360 do it.

It just pisses me off that I can setup any number of media servers on my PC and not only does the PS3 pick them up instantly, it streams from them flawlessly and never really has any issues. Then I go on my 360 find the same media servers except it won't work properly. Music works perfectly but videos just refuse to work for some reason.

I don't see why Tversity works for my PS3 but not 360. Even my friends PC's can pick it up and stream but the 360 can't and I can't figure out why.

I had one bought for me last xmas and I think used it maybe a total of 5 times up to this point.

I'm thinking about just selling it or trading the whole system in and using the credit towards PS3 games coming out this fall.

My Wii will be used once Xenoblade Chronicles comes out this Friday. Hurray for region unlocking!

Sony Gamescom (European E3) conference is on right now.

Yes. It gets more use than my PS3.

SolidSnakeUS 08-16-2011 02:25 PM

Via Gamescom, PS3 is now $249. Immediate effect.

Just finished a 100% run-through of Majora's Mask on the Wii Virtual Console.

Might as well put the NPD stats for July here:

Quote:

3. Call of Duty: Black Ops - Activision Blizzard (360, PS3, NDS, Wii, PC)
4. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game - Disney Interactive Studios (Wii, NDS, 360, PS3, 3DS, PSP, PC)
5. Just Dance 2 - Ubisoft (Wii)
6. Major League Baseball 2K11 - Take-Two Interactive (360, Wii NDS, PS3, PS2, PSP, PC)

Great price. No reason to not get one now.

The better deal is the 320GB model with Infamous 2 for only 50 dollars more

Zodiac 08-16-2011 03:53 PM

$199 would have been newsworthy, imo.

i guess so ...but i'm just saying that at $250 it does little to blow the doors off for me.

Jussi 08-16-2011 05:11 PM

MS will probably counter the pricedrop with a small drop themselves before the end of the year.

I think well before the holiday shopping season. They really need to ditch the 4GB SKU

Hizaki 08-16-2011 09:53 PM

Yeah, $250 for the PS3 isn't bad at all.

However, it's been essentially $200 in the past 8 months multiple times with a $100 gift card with the purchase of the 160GB slim.

I got mine from Amazon with $100 credit (actually $125 due to their error), but they were matching Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target offers of $100 gift cards with purchase.

Zelda: Skyward Sword gets a release date.

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-...e-november-20/

Will be released on November 20th. Almost five years to the day since the launch of the Wii console (Nov. 19th, 2006), and looks to be its last major software release.

El Dandy* 08-17-2011 06:46 PM

If I can find a deal to where the PS3 would end up being 200 or less, then I would get it.

There is only 1 reason and 1 reason only I covet a PS3: MLB The Show. I cannot justify paying more than 200 for a system I will most likely only play 1 game on.

How is the online on the PS3? I've contemplated switching from the 360 to PS3 since online is free. :dunno:

Main advantages for Live: cross game chat, easier to invite people to games, sending messages to people, there's probably more but those are the most common I hear from friends who have both systems.

D Fresh 08-18-2011 10:56 PM

I'd pick up a 360 if it was 50 bucks cheaper.
