Sony just seems to continuously dig they're own grave by constantly changing the system specs and compatibility issues.

Sure, they want you to buy the new PS3 titles, but most of them are also available on 360. There are not many exclusives that shine among other systems. Most of them failed. Lair...failure. Warhawk....online only....failure. Heavenly sword...good but too short...another failure. Little Big Planet was recalled once, and a great deal of customers gave up on that title too. Next year you got God of War 3, and Killzone 2 which keeps me going because I HAVE played it and it is really great. Other than that, you got a whole lot of nothing, and it is nobody's fault but Sony. I keep my 60GB PS3, but honestly, it is mostly a blu-ray movie player for me. Recently I acquired a copy of Silent Hill, the first game that genuinely freaked me the hell out. What Sony does not realize, is that backwards compatibility is VERY important, because the current catalog is too shallow. True, most people are trading in the PS2 and all games, but many of them are going 360. Sony is failing. It is sad, but I have to say they are doing it to themselves. They have sequels to already popular games long before they have original titles. I have had my PS3 since January, and only have about 2 games...sad. This system has a great deal of potential, but they are loosing big time to original titles. I know a lot of Sony fan boys who purchased a 360, just for fable. Do the math. Sony once had a great system, but they have abandoned the fan base, and lost touch of what sells. I mean from where I am standing, they have lost all interest in the status of supply and demand. What the hell Sony?
Well, at least they still have Final Fant--- oh, wait...

At 19.99, it's worth it. And it has rubber tips on the bottom so it won't scratch my wood floors. After employee discount, it makes it only 16.99. Even sweeter!!

$163.49 - I feel violated...

Oh, but there is a prominent aftermarket for the transfer kit that comes with it... and I'll probably offload my 20GB HDD, too. In fact I just got finished listing the transfer kit on eBay here.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=250328004459

Oh, and the description...

Quote:

Well, that's great, cause I made one! (Move eyes in downward gaze to see it)

Trying to save money and got a super cheap Elite Black 120GB hard drive (or that 60GB one) off eBay only to realize it was just the unit itself and was useless until you got one of these?
-or-
Decided it would be cost effective to buy them both separately rather than go to BestBuy and plop down $163.49 like I did just an hour ago?
-and-
Want more space to put all that RockBand DLC (like me) and the game installs you've been hearing is all the rage for the NXE (again, like me)?
-and-
You want to help a guy (me) who just dropped a week's paycheck ($8.65 and hour, woot!) for a hard drive he may never fill up, ever, and help recoup some of his costs?
-you do?-
All right! Then bid on this thing! I'll promise to get it shipped out the next day (maybe the day after that, I'm only human) via USPS
in one of those sweet manila colored bubble mailers that are all the rage these days.

"What's included" you ask? Well, I'll tell you in bullet points no less!
  • That super sweet Hard Drive Transfer Cable that you'll use once then resell on eBay yourself next week.
  • The super awesome Printed-on-Toilet Paper Instruction Manual that tells you how to do it... in FOUR different languages!
  • The all important epic Data Transfer DVD that makes you stare at a nice purple screen for an hour and 15 minutes (use that time to write up your own eBay page, like I'm doing right now)!
  • Includes free DVD sleeve with awesome artwork printed on it.
From one gamer to another, thanks for your business... I really am poor now. Seriously...


Oh, and "legal" stuffs:
Paypal ONLY
Ships to US ONLY
Return Policy: There is none, this thing works, if it doesn't for you maybe you shouldn't have had that elective lobotomy back in '93. Besides, you savy cons out there (not you, of course) would just love sending it back to me for a refund after using it that one time you needed it for and I'll have none of that.

Disclaimer:
I'm not crazy, I'm just having fun with eBay. If you think I'm some sort of irresponsible nut who will never send it to you, you're mistaken. I'm all buisness and I'm honest (maybe a little too honest), don't take my nonchalance too seriously.
Edit:

SOLD! For $42... Yay!

Now selling 20GB HDD. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:X:AAQ:US:1123

4 hours left at time of writing and it's still only a $13.37, but it looks like they quickly go up to the $30-40 range a half an hour before closing. Lets see how this thing does...

Did some stop watch tests on Skate load times with and without the game installed on the hard drive. Really nice since you'll hit the "session loads" constantly, depending on what you're doing you'll trigger it purposefully every 60 seconds to every 4 minutes to never.

Well, two things happened to me the other day.

1) I realized I had only 1.3 gigs free on my 360's Hard Drive (too much Rock Band DLC)
2) My DVD drive gave me disc read errors on games with few scratches.

So, I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone. I bought a 120gb 360 hard drive. I now have more space than I know what to do with, and thanks to the NXE, I installed my most played games to the hard drive. I don't care about the loading times, what I care about is it only uses the DVD drive to make sure you still have the game. Other than that, it doesn't use the DVD drive at all.

Now the thing that sucks about it, is it cost me 161 bucks with tax. I bought a 320gb hard drive for my laptop the other day for 150. So the price sucks. However, it turns out there's a huge market for the included Hard Drive Transfer Kit on ebay. TiE sold his for 42 bucks, so I am hoping to get near the same amount. If I sell that and my old 20gb hard drive, it will make the price a little more bearable.

Okay.

How the HELL did I not start listening to Jeff Buckley sooner? I've known about him since I was in the 4th or 5th grade and I'm just now discovering how epic his music is?

This is a problem.

Either way, Jeff Buckley is a VERY VERY VERY good thing.

Whoa. I was listening to that song as I read your post.

Not even kidding. That's some crazy omen right there.


As for the cover, that's pretty good. Unfortunately it doesn't boast the angelic voice that makes Jeff Buckley so god-awesome for me, but it's still pretty sweet.

I love that song.

Soooo much.

That was one of the two or so that I've known since I was little.

Went on a stupid shopping spree today.



Coheed & Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow - $10 at Target

For as much as I love Coheed & Cambria, I never actually bought any of their cds. I'm looking to rectify that, but unfortunately Target only had No World For Tomorrow.



steelseries Wrath of the Lich King Mousepad - $15 at Gamestop.

Say what you will, but I needed a mouse pad, and I like Arthas. It's also actually pretty nice.



Rock Band AC/DC Live Track Pack - $40 at Wal-Mart.

Unlike what I thought, it's actually it's own stand alone game. It's basically Rock Bands version of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. Pretty good, but I still wish they would have released it as DLC instead.

Drawing on a combination of boredom and an ADD moment, I decided to check up on the status of the Amory Wars comics, the literal form of the story told through Coheed and Cambrias four CDs. Last I checked, they were on hiatus after issue #4. After randomly checking, I found out they released issue #10, the last of the story told by their first cd "The Second Stage Turbine Blade" on October 22nd, and that they had made a compilation of the first five issues that are sold at Hot Topic stores. As much as it pained me to step inside that horrid store of fail, I ventured to one and snagged a copy of the first 5 issues.



I just finished reading the whole thing, and not only is it actually good on it's own, it's shining a new perspective on their first cd for me.

It really is a nerdgasm for me :x

Now I gotta track down the second volume...

EDIT: After finally tracking down the 5th issue of the second volume, I ordered them all online. Hopefully they'll all be here friday

If only more comics were based of music...

Painkiller the Song the Comic...
Painkiller, half man and half machine, He's faster than a lazer bullet, louder than an atom bomb, made from Chromium plated boiling metal, and brighter than a thousand suns...
He comes to earth to save humanity. Then with mankind resurrected, they are forever to survive...

Acer 24" 1080P Monitor w/Dual HDMI inputs

Me + Credit Card + Early Black Friday Sales = Bad Combination >:3

See, here's my setup. Right now I have my computer hooked up to 2 Compaq 17" CRT monitors at 2560x1024 dualview resolution. However, I also have my 360 which I unplug a monitor from the computer and use it with it at 1280x1024 resolution. This is nice, but a huge pain, seeing as every time I want to play 360, I have to unplug the monitor from the computer, and plug it into the 360's VGA wire, then when done replug it back into the computer.

This monitor has 2 HDMI inputs, meaning that I will be able to hook my 360 up to it via HDMI (at full 1080P) and then hook up my computer to it via a DVI->HDMI cable, and switch between the two inputs at my leisure.

Only thing that sucks, is that Neweggs normally extremely fast shipping (ordered headphones from them sunday night, arrived tuesday afternoon a day early) is being hindered by the holiday weekend.

I want it now ;_;

EDIT: I also plan on getting a TV Tunder Card soon and pop it into my computer, so I can watch TV on it also

decided to check out amazon.com, cause $60 is a bit much for me, found it new for like $40. I should receive it by December 8th.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

So this holiday, I am hosting new years eve at my place. We are not big drinkers in my family but we like to play games. Last year we just watched T.V. at my parents house---boring! When ever I have parties at my place, I like to make grand use of my video game consoles to fund the entertainment. I been playing a lot of Rock Band 2 the last couple of nights. I like to do vocals. My brother in law, can't sing, but I did hear that he likes to play Rock Band drums at a friend's house. Now I bought a used guitar several months ago, even though I rarely use it. The only thing I lacked was drums...aka the most expensive item in the full set. At first decided to get the portable drum set from Mad Catz, so we could have a complete rock band, and then it occurred to me that I have no furniture to sit the make shift drum set on! I had my eye on the wireless drum set for some time, only because it looks spiffy. Even though wireless 360 Rock Band 2 drum sets are back ordered in my company, my neighbor store had one left. So I returned the portable set, traded in a few games, and had enough to pay for the wireless drum kit, and a couple of symbol expansions. I have only messed with it briefly, but it is fun. It is actually something I would not mind practicing at. And I have to admit, it looks kinda sexy in my living room!

Go for it grooves! It's actually not too bad of a way to learn how to play drums. No, you're not playing real drums, but you're getting as close as you can

Yeah, I'm sure it helps. You really gain a mastery of rhythm. And your forearms/endurance get trained like no other.
