Default Re: Playstation 3 Price cut rumor

OK, I am really going to show m,y ignorance of the PS3, but is it a standard HDMI cable connection (on both ends, really the PS3 end) or do I need something proprietary?

Standard HDMI 1.3 buddy. No proprietary cables needed. You may want to get the $25 Bluetooth PS3 Blu-ray remote though. Otherwise you need to control the Blu-ray movies with the PS3 controller. You might find it a little clunky.

OK, I have a launch 60G, it is fully backwards compatible with PS1 & PS2 games, the 80G is not, but since you are not a big gamer this is probably not going to be a problem.

Motorstorm is a nice looking game as is F1 Championship edition & DiRT ( I put up links in the other post you made)
So with your $100 coupon the 80G is probably the way to go since I would imagine you will probably download a bunch of HD movie trailers like I did!
The PS3 uses a standard laptop hard drive & is very easy to upgrade if you ever need more room.

This is the HDMI cable I'm using right now.

It's cheap but it works, & yes you use a standard cable, only if you go Composite (it's included), component or S-Video do you need a proprietary cable.

I put a list of current & future games on your other post too.

Absolutely get the Bluetooth remote it's much better than using the controller for movie playback.

Also I wouldn't get any extra controllers just yet, the Dual Shock 3 controllers with the rumble features will be out next year.

This is the wheel/pedal combination I use, if you like driving games get a force feedback wheel, it's much better driving with the wheel instead of the controller.

You are the man Moose!

Thank God you don't live near me or we'd be building a 500 hp beetle convertible for a toy or something equally sick!

I am trying to decide if I really need one, and looking at cheap laptops as well today...... Being that immediate gratification type of guy (who am I kidding, all guys are like me!) I might just go to BB and get one if they have the motorstorm one....
