On sale at PC WOrld for £199

Just to let you know that PC World are now selling them at £199. If you can pick up the bigger battery, flog the old one, then it's not that bad a price. Linky here: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/705895#productInformationSection

UK boffins roll out video periodic table

Hehehe, I remember...

When we found out about this in school... Cue nicking large amounts of sodium over time, making small holes in a model boat, filling said model with said nicked sodium, covering the holes with filter paper, then sailing the model out on to a nearby lake filled with un-knowing folk on pedal boats...

Oh, how we laughed that day. :)

Sony details PS3 DVR pricing, launch date

@ myself

Sort of answered my own questions... Here's the Sony press release, oh and it's operating on DVB-T.

@ HD questions

There are some pics of the GUI up at the official PS website, looks like the tuners will support HD of some sort...


Well, I'm judging that on the fact that there's a little HD logo next to some of the programmes, anyone got any links to tech specs?

Sony delays PS3 virtual world Home - again

I wish they'd get over it...

<Quote>Even the Wii has a better online system than the PS3!!!<endQuote>

Owning a Wii, 360, and a PS3 I'd have to disagree. The revamped PSN store and the browser on the PS3 are both excellent (and free). The 360 doesn't offer a web experience, but their store has more content than the PS one. The Wii does well in both departments too, and it's free too.

<Quote>game after game release is delayed (of which "home" is just one example), and when they do come out, they aren't even in high definition!! 720p is the best the vast majority of games can manage!<endQuote>

Not true. Us PS3 owners are all playing CoD4 in 1080p. We don't play anything else... :)

<Quote>the dreadful matchmaking / friend system / voice chat online system that Sony has attempted with the PS3<endQuote>

As I said, we all only play CoD4 which has tidy enough match-making. A few seconds to find a game. I am only comparing this to Halo 3 though (which I thought took ages to find a game - it may be better on other titles).

The friends system on a PS3 is fine. It's pretty much the same across the 360, Wii and PS3. Send an invite, then accept or reject. That's about it. What more do you want from it?

And voice chat is fine too! I love abusing people in CoD4 (again, the only game us PS3 users play!).

There's always going to be a number of people who slag off the consoles, always was, always will be. Some of us just buy them all to enjoy the benefits each has over the other! :)
