all the updates on the PS3 are starting to slightly get on my nerves, system updates, game updates, store updates. I feel sorry for those who have a slow connection.

These updates are exciting and beneficial. Every morning I wake up early to watch a loading bar fill up, skip breakfast and go to work. By the time I get home 10 hours later, the download is 50% done and im ready to take a power nap with some incense candles and the sound of kaz hirai's voice from the 2006 E3 press conference. After that I eat dinner while watching it idile at 99%. When it finishes I turn the PS3 off from all the excitement and go to bed hoping I get to do it again tomorrow.
That or play Lair with Six-Axis enabled.

Dorian would tell you how wrong you are.


But yes the PS3's patching/updating system is a bad joke and when it comes to the dash i would rather they just do 1 big update a year like MS. But seeing as how crap the system is a big update could take 5 hours to download.

Is the PSN inherently slower than XBL? 'cos I'm on a fairly shit connection, yet XBL seems to always be pretty solid and speedy. Out of the people I know with PS3s, only a few seem to get stuff to download quickly from PSN...

The main stumbling block is Xbox supports N wireless and PS3 only has G wireless built-in..

I think you guys are right, 360 is quicker, PS3 is slower to download things off. The connections aren't stable either, I always get dropped out of online games on PS3, whereas 360 is far more stable. Hopefully with the PS4 and Gaikai thing, they will improve their connections.

This is what I lament when people insist on how PSN is every bit the equal of Xbox Gold, but for free. On paper it could appear that way. In reality, there is little question who does it better. That isn't to say having a shabbier service for free isn't going to be a better value to some than a premium service from Microsoft with a fee, but it does eliminate the debate as being a strictly apples to apples comparison. In any event, I just keep exploiting the 2 months of gold for $2 deal on cheap ass gamer. For $1 a month, I can't really argue with the reliability and speed of Xbox Gold.

I always heard about and wanted to play Skies of Arcadia, and that is what I am doing right now (playing it), but I never thought it was such a great game!

I wish I had played it back then (2001-2003), when I had more free time ...or maybe not, maybe it is better that I am playing it now... Aye, aye! It is a whole new experience!

(Some improvements that I would want it to have: better player control, more detailed directions about where you must go with your ship so to proceed in the game, a better camera A.I.)

And I heard lately about a Grandia II...

^ Snag Grandia II on DC. Best version. Great game. Well both are fantastic RPG's. Couple overlooked RPG's on DC is EGG and Timestalkers(Climax Landers) not as good as the other 2 but good games still.
