    yeh i know, but its simple in terms of refunds etc.

    I dont wanna send someone a link to buy something to some obscure website to save a fiver(i didnt mean the fiver literally either before you get all :fyi: up on my ass ) and this way he knows the model number and the version etc so he can look for himself.

    Temptation got the better of me today. There I was home alone and so I...

    signed up to PSN


    :ninja:

    I unplugged the desktop from the router (damn lack of wirelessness) found a 20m ethernet cable (inheriting stuff from family is rather useful :woo:) and got myself signed upto PSN and then had about 4 hours on MW2 online, annoying that I had start again rather than use the offline profile that was upto Lv 25ish. Got it upto Lv 12 or 13 though.

    How much does PS3/MW2 online gaming use of a download limit? I know this house has a limit but I don't think it is that high so I don't want to go over that...

    Thanks to both of you, I bought it off Amazon cos it was cheaper. I was surprised at PC worlds spec information though, it was virtually non existent! Either way I should get it by the end of the week and as long as it doesn't reset itself I'll be so happy :woo:

    Hope the Amazon one works out ok, should do! :grin:

    Oh, do you think it's possible to dismantle the PS3 controller to replace the battery pack thing inside? :holmes:

    Edit:
    You can, even though Sony say you can't. :rofl:

    Saves money buying a new controller tbh, I think one of my controllers isn't holding charge well.
