Woah. Thought you had a problem with your new PS4. Good to know you don't.
My own PS3 is also running smoothly after setting it up yesterday. I put Red Dead on and thought, mmm, ok. Played it for a few hours, had a (overly long) game of poker and made a couple of bucks then put on GTAV, the real reason for owning a PS3.
And my oh my - GTA5 is lovely. All I've been doing is driving around in super nice sportscars at top speeds and admiring the way they handle with the dual shock controller. You don't get any feedback with a keyboard and mouse and something about pressing the right shoulder button down to accelerate just feels so good! And graphically, the game has got to be close to the best I've seen so far, PC or not.
You can tell the overall lack of definition though that's to be expected, 720p and the limitations of 7 or so year old hardware but to think what they've gotten out of the PS3 is nothing short of amazing. My only gripe is not being able to read road signs well as I'm bombing around but then I could just slow down I guess but who wants to do that?
Luverly! Should say thanks to Father Timey for sending it to me all wrapped up in his gf's favourite purple cushion too. Something tells me it's not a cheap cushion either so perhaps I should send it back? But then I'd be cushionless again with nothing to rest on when playing.
It's hard work using the controllers to shoot at the shooting gallery mind. I spent ages tweaking things and had to go southpaw, which worked for me. Then switch it back for real life. Haven't gotten very far in the main story yet but I'm going back in.
I don't know how the PSN stuff works but my user ID is spooktooth so feel free to add me - I need some friends! I won't likely go online for a bit tho as I am pretty handicapped as a newbie console player and would likely be ridiculously easy meat!
Gotta do some training up first!
Arsenal! No I don't support them but know someone who will appreciate the sentiment.
Hahaha. Cheers mate! No wonder you were so quiet last night.
