    hey guys, i'm hopefully going to be starting uni in september and i was wondering if it was worth taking my ps3 for the first year? i mainly play online but i don't know if most uni's block certain ports to prevent gaming as i guess they don't want a ton of bandwidth being used by ps3 and xbox users. does this happen?

    Dunno which Uni you're going to so it depends on your Universities policy but so many of my friends brought up their X360's and PS3's during Xmas cos they were so bored. I'm surprised they lasted that long tbh :p:

    TV's aren't all that bad. On the Ps3 front though, I did read that if you used your PS3 2 hours per day for a year it would cost you about £20 per year (this was when there were no Slim Ps3's) so it can't be that bad surely

    Guys, is there anyway to stop downloads from pausing when you start a game? Even when the game itself doesn't go online. For example, Dragon Age. It's rather annoying.

    I'm bored of the old PSTriple. Need a new game. Finished FFXIII, kinda meh, not all that tbh. Heavy Rain was the last game I ADORED. Platinumed Uncharted 1 and 2 and got the Big Boss Emblem on MGS4 (as well as FINALLY getting Foxhound on MGS3).

    Now I need something new to play. Suggest people!

    I have:

    COD: MW
    COD: [email protected]
    FFXIII
    Heavy Rain
    Little Big Planet
    MGS4
    Ratchet and Clank: TOD
    Resi 5
    Soul Calibur IV
    Uncharted
    Uncharted 2
    Virtua Tennis 3

    Hi PinkPenguin :hello:

    I finished FFXIII not too long ago, and thought it was a bit rubbish tbh! Usually i feel quite sad to finish the story, but I was just happy to never see Hope and Vanille again!

    As for a new game suggestion, I recently bought "Fat Princess" on the Playstation Network. I thought it might of been lame, but its really fun and has got some good reviews. The game has recently got a price drop to £7.99 which is a bargain in my opinion.

    Or...if you like RPG's and want a challenge, I highly recommend Demon's Souls. An exclusive PS3 game, that wouldnt have got to Europe if it wasnt so popular.

    :hi: Yes it is.

    - If you enjoyed R&C: ToD, then get R&C: Crack in Time!
    - CoD: MW2
    - CoD: Black Ops in Nov
    - LBP2 in Nov

    Gran Turismo 5? One of the most anticipated game of all time is due to release... you guessed it, November. :p:

    Some more game recommendations are in the OP including PSN games.

    I always seem to get stuck with idiots in Zombies. I went to cover some guy's window after he moved, cos there were zombies starting to spawn, so he started throwing grenades at me to get me to move ffs...
