    I've done it 4 times now. The tech forum moderator seems to not have taken notice. Illusionary is on the case though, I think.
    There's not much more that I can do. Repeated reporting won't really help; if Vlad's not in a position to deal with the reports at the moment, he'll just end up with more to wade through when he comes online.

    If there are any additional posts with unspoilered spoilers (if you see what I mean), link them here and I can add them to my AAM thread.

    Blur - cross platform gaming?

    :gah:
    So basically what it would be is a mass online game with the 360 players glitching all over the place & the PS3 ones not even there because the clock in their PS3 is broken.. :ahee:

    Nah seriously, would be a great idea. I wish they'd do this with GTA IV & The Episodes.. (when it comes out), would be superb.

    Why they don't anyway is beyond me. Imagine COD:MW2 cross platform. Would be superb! (if they had the proper servers etc...).

    Hope this can be a thing of the future.

    Lol at Rooney!

    That Blur thing is not actually cross-platform though. It seems that it's simply a messaging service on Twitter or whatever that challenges you to complete a time trial or whatever and the scores are all collated and posted up onto the Internet.

    I never read the news stories properly, if i am to be honest, i have a short attention span & the title is enough for me.. :lol:

    So basically it's aload of crap.

    Still, i think Cross platform gaming online should be introduced. What harm would it do.. Infact it would do both consoles some good. Obviously apart from exclusive online modes on whatever console... Would be interesting to hear the fanboys on GTA instead of the gimps talking & singing.

    I am the same!

    If we had cross platform, what about the Wii? :puppyeyes: :p: Or are they in a league of their own.? :p:

    There will probably be too many fanboys arguing for cross-platform gaming to work properly! :p:

    With all those cheating *******s on the xbox? Nah you're alright! I don't wanna join a game and leave being on level 1 or join a game where the opposition have god mode enabled and we don't. Also MW2 is pretty **** compared to cod4 so if they do make a new one they should consider at least trying to see if cross gaming is possible.

    I'm not too annoyed, I suppose, as I got them for about £3 more combined from eBay.

    I'm pretty sure that Heavy Rain will start to fall in price on eBay before too long, as I'd expect lots of people to sell it after playing it though once or twice.

    It's like a guarantee that the person on eBay is selling a disk that is not scratched. Even though people say they've only played it once and nothing's wrong with it, I wouldn't take the risk.

    Plus, unwrapping a game is :awesome: since you know that no-one else has had the honour of using that disk! :ninja:

    Fair enough! :lol:

    You can get new copies at bargain prices on eBay as well, though, if you're lucky. My copy of Bioshock2 wasn't in it's cellophane, but the game disc and manual were still in a sealed bag inside the box.

    Yep I've snagged a couple of great new copies on eBay too. :jive:

    Also been trying to find a cheap copy of Tekken 6 - it's still £25! :dry:
