    Everybody happy?

    The question still includes the bit about Asian territory consoles not supporting online, with nothing about it in the answer. Seems fine otherwise.

    Perfect.

    Holy shit, I was just looking at the pricing chart and Denmark has to pay $930 for the 60gb one.

    What the...?

    Are they normally this shafted?

    The first post in that thread would be absolutely superb, Barton, if it was up to date. Could be a useful template for someone to adjust as we get closer to the UK launch.
    You're my shining beacon of hope for the PS3 mentality, being the only person I know who owns one, has some sense and a grasp of a human language.

    I hope you're going to help me out with this thread once it all kicks off.

    Of course! My 'I've got a PS3' thread was great while it was keeping itself going, but it's snaked all over the place now so this thread will hopefully become something nice, concise and useful for the mods to link to once all the stupid question threads start (carry on?) popping up.

    Q: What can I do with my PSP once it's connected?
    A: You can use it as a browser and some games use it for extra functionality such as GT Hi-def which allows you to use it as a rear view mirror.
    Didn't know you could rear view mirror in GT HD, might give that a bash, for the sake of curiosity. Though why you need a rear view mirror on a time trail based game I don't know.

    The PSP connects to the 60gbs wireless adapter, and let's you use some of the dashboard features like music, video files(not Blue Ray/DVD) and the friends list.

    How to do this as well as most other PS3 functions is detailed in the quite handy online PS3 user guide

    I'll add that lot, Trip - cheers! I didn't know about the rear view until I looked into more stuff to add for the guide, i've just spent the last couple of hours searching for random stuff and came across the E3 lampoonery and the GT thing was on that. I've got no idea if they kept it in though. Let me know :)

    Thanks, Ilmeister!

    Sorry, my wording of the online guide was a little off. It's actually the manual for the system software (which you can see online).

    Doesn't matter, it gets the point across.

    I'll put it right.

    Has anyone actually done this on GTHD?!

    At E3 they demoed it on F1... Does this work on the demo I have at home.

    Plugged the US PS3 in to Europe power last night. 120V 50Hz plugged into 230/240V. Works great, except for slight electric discharge off of the metal disc loader included with the 60G version. Not sure what this means, something to worry about? The fact that it turned on without frying the power supply immediately and is still running is a positive sign.

    i also heard about this being in f1, it was on gamespots "on the spot" show last week or the week before that, i also heard it was now only a feature included in the jap version and not the rest!!! (also on the gamespot show) it is a mega cool feature though the psp triggers are a bit gay if you control racers that way

    I HAVE A JAP ONE AND IT CENSORS ALL THE BLOOD OUT, NOTE THAT HONKG KONG IS A DIFFERENT REIGON TO JAPAN AND SO MAY NOT BE CENSORED

    and the makers of resistance confirmed this was the case to another forum member and gave him a special save game to get around it why would they bother if it wasnt true

    Edited by dudewheresmybrain at 22:20:21 18-01-2007


    ..... The japanese model is no different to any model of ps3 out there.......

    The difference lies in the software version of the code you are running.....

    IE if its a japanese game there is no blood, if its a yank version there is blood.

    Its in the software itself, not the console......... It would be impossible to make a console that knows what blood is and handles it differently to any other form non discript graphic....


    The parental control in the Jap, EU, Hong Kong and American versions are all the same, do the same things and are applied the same way. The problem with no blood lies as previously stated in the regional software code.

    Christ...... I just dont get how people can think that the Japanese model is built to a different specification than any of the others to include the "no blood chip"


    retarded.

    oh and before anyone starts banging on about how I am wrong.... let me reiterate....

    I have a Japanese Model bought from a supplier in Hong kong

    I have a Resistance fall of man - US VERSION

    I have Blood in game

    I am online using a jap console with a US home address with a UK billing address.


    edit - Added the US version part

    Actually, no it isn't impossible. The blood and gore code can be tagged so it doesn't work if say, parental control is activated.

    But yeah, I'm more inclined to agree it's the software, even though any version can be forced to show blood if you use the US save.

    Japanese Model PS3 is Region 1 same as US and Canada

    EU is region 2


    and beyond that I dont care......


    There is NO NTSC / PAL coding on High Definition (HD OR BR) DVD disks regardless of whether it is region 1, 2 ,3 etc

    NTSC and PAL refers to the display format of the DISK. NTSC being 30 FPS (more or less) with X resolution lines

    PAL being 25 FPS (5 or so less than NTSC) with X (note: more than NTSC) resolution lines


    The Jap PS3 plays NTSC - J Region 2 DVD
    The Yank version plays NTSC - U Region 1 DVD

    what do you mean MORE inclined to agree....... either you think its hardware restricted or software incoded.....


    if you think its hardware restricted I reiterate.... you are an idiot

    when I say hardare restricted I mean the no blood chip not parental setting which just refers to the tagging of certain graphical files.

    Used in the same way that parental controls on a DVD or satellite receiver work..... the broadcaster sets out tagging the individual programs and the reciever blocks the content depending on what the control is set too.....


    but 1 box in comparison to another box is no different in the physical hardware design........

    As previously stated before the bypass occurs because the US save file overrides the japanese software code. Its all in the regional software coding


    Germany for example has different software regional coding compared to the UK.

    In germany the same thing applies as to japan. No blood in games and the use of the NAZI symbols are to be restricted also.

    This doesnt mean that a German bought PS3 is in any way different to a UK bought PS3.

    *heh, the no blood chip* - retarded.

    dude I wasnt calling you an idiot..... I was calling people that thought there was a magical device an idiot.....



    heres an extract from the article



    Germany is amongst the most draconian of countries when it comes to video game censorship laws already. In 2003, following another school shooting, the law was amended to ensure that games published in Germany had a lower level of violence than European or American versions.

    Indeed, Counter Strike itself falls under this law and unlike the game that I have played here in the UK, if you play within German borders there is no blood to be seen gushing from bullet holes when wounded, there are no victims collapsing – they fade away instead.
    So the whole immersion in graphic representations of violence drives real world action theory would seem to be, if you will excuse the analogy, blown away before we start. Quite how banning first person shooters, beat ‘em ups and the like will solve the problem of an increasingly violent culture is beyond me.

    We know all about that artical, it bears no relation to the problem that was raised. I don't own a PS3, nor do I want to so I can only go by what people have told me.

    Several people told me to change it to what it currently is, so the entry will remain as is unless someone can find an official word on the situation.

    because that's probably more his speciality.

    As ALREADY MENTIONED in the first post, the PSP does several things if you link it with the PS3, none of which are really worth bothering with.

    Regarding which to get out of the 360 and the PS3, I would have to say neither.
