I don't know if this is the right place but I just purchased a 160 GB PS3 with Uncharted 3 to go with my slim 360...any game recommendations for my PS3?I mainly only want exclusives for it, as my 360 is still my main console.I waited 30 minutes just to get inside Best Buy and then 3 hours in line for it !

I would get the Uncharted1/2 combo pack that like 40 bucks or something, can't go wrong with that. If you like God of War, there's the remastered PS2 games, the remastered PSP games, and the third game...so five in total. If you haven't played GoW yet, DL one of the demos (I think all five have demos up in the store)

What's the point if all the games or lack of suck for Kinect? Make all the peripherals they want but it's a useless invention without a reason to turn it on.

You do know that just because you don't like them doesn't mean other people don't? Meaning, see review scores for Dance Central games, Kinect Sports games or The Gunstringer or Child of Eden.

Infamous is another one to add.
Gran Turismo 5 if you enjoy racing simulations.

Is that what I was saying? I don't care about review scores because there's an audience for every idiotic genre out there. The fact is they barely make anything for it, I got it on day one and it's maybe gotten 2 total hours of use because there's just nothing on the market for it.

What's the point of reading lips? You can talk to the damn thing and it still sucks. Who is going to mouth words and suddenly think it's a good purchase?

My kids got a kinect for christmas last year and a few games. I think I've seen them use it once.

Waste of money.

Oh come now, you know that when you're not watching, they're playing Kinect Sports. Naked.

I'd consider pick up a 360 if the games it had RPG games on it that were exclusive. But I don't think there is any, at least any good ones.

I played Kinect once at Best Buy. Major waste of money. Not very responsive, limited in terms of game play, and not very responsive. Great work out tool though.

Never used the PS3 motion device but it looks like it's just as reponsive as the Wii-mote, and thus, much better than the Kinect.

There are a few JRPGs exclusive, like Tales of Vesperia, Lost Odyessy and Blue Dragon

It's actually getting more responsive as time goes on, they're able to update the software rather than the hardware. Kinect Sports Season 2 is supposedly (in some of the sports in it) surprisingly accurate.

Microsoft and Nintendo have released information on their Black Friday week sales. Microsoft had their best week ever: http://majornelson.com/2011/11/29/xb...-xbox-history/

Xbox 360 sold more than 960,000 consoles in the U.S. alone, of which more than 800,000 were sold within a period of 24 hours the biggest week of sales in Xbox history. (Source: Internal data)
More than 750,000 Kinect for Xbox 360 sensors were sold in the U.S. standalone and bundled. (Source: Internal data)
Wii sold 500K last week as did Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Super Mario 3D Land.

Wii had its best Black Friday ever in terms of sales, which is kind of crazy considering its basically a dead platform at this point with only two major releases this entire year (Zelda and Kirby).

Vesperia is worth getting and I think there's a PS3 version too.

Well that sucks. It's just as good as Symphonia too. Shame some people won't get to play it because of fanboyism. They just announced localization of Graces f I think which I am happy about.

Gears of war is the only snd i mean ONLY reason i have a 360. I wish it would just go to ps3 so i coild sell my xbox and not have to pay every year to play it online. It would be nice to trim my entertainment unit by only owning one console.

The only reason I wanted to use an X-Box in the past year and half was to play Alan Wake. For a game of that length, I just borrowed my buddy's 360.

PS3's have the Uncharted series and the Demon Soul series, that's enough for me to stay with Sony.

No they don't. The sequel Dark Souls in multiplatform, Sony doesn't own the franchise.

After a week with my PS3, while it is a great console I still prefer my 360, but if you can afford it, then having both consoles is the best bet and well worth it.
