I picked up a PS3 over the weekend. The money came in the wife gave her blessing and James isn't sure what all the fuss is about but he loves my glow in the dark controller and he likes to push them.
I've been wanting to get one of these for a long time and the new job made it all happen. The setup was a little involved, Verizon wasn't sure it wanted to talk to the PS3 so tech calls had to be placed but now it is happy on our wireless network and I was playing Heavenly Sword last night and then we took a break and watched Spiderman 3 in the Blu-Ray format.
A few qualifiers :
1) My TV is a 50 inch Samsung DLP 1080P.
2) I have the PS3 hooked up to my Home Theater System
So when I say that the movie looked and sounds better then it did in the movie theater, you can understand why I am so excited.
There is no comparison between Blu-Ray and the HD format. Blu-Ray is so very much better. I had no fraking idea there where so many shards of glass. I had no idea Venom could look that cool. I had no idea that they animated very single tiny piece of Sandman. I had no idea that lens flares could flare to pretty.
What I am saying is that I am a movie fan and the PS3 makes me very, very, very, VERY happy. And now I can't wait to pop open my Blade Runner Final Cut and the Blu-Ray edition of Close Encounters. Holy CRAP.
What about the games? Well I haven;t done to much with it yet but I played a few levels of Heavenly Sword but I did get to witness the motion sensors in action and flew a connonball from a castle to right between a guys eyes. Wow again!
The system is just amazing and everything I hopped for. I would be happy to keep visiting this thread if folks have questions. Just give me time to get back here. James is very happy with my new toy. No kiddo it's DADDY'S turn!
