    Uncharted is a definate buy, so is the GoW series. Own them, love them. Can't go wrong with Assassins Creed, and Mortal Kombat either. GT5 also great on PS3.

    Hell yeah the PS3 blu-ray is better! One key consideration is that the PS3 allows for easy firmware updates. You can buy the blu-ray remote additionally, if you want.

    I can't give you any insight into L.A. Noire, but if you're looking for some great PS3 only titles, here are a few recommendations:


    • God of War 3: Probably one of the best games ever put out for any system. You may want to invest in the GoW Collection, which includes GoW 1&2, but these are only ports from PS2. Still makes for a great story arc.


    • MAG: USMG used to play this religiously, as it allowed for 256 player combat at the same time. We don't play it collectively as much and it's popularity has kind of died down, but once in a while you can find huge games going on.
    • Killzone 3: A personal favorite. Killzone 2 was more a more challenging SP campaign, IMO, but KZ3 has a better multiplayer.
    • Little Big Planet: I can only comment on the first one, as I don't have LBP2 yet. But I understand it's even better than the first.

    There are plenty more out there that are good, but I can't attest to them all. The only other PS3 exclusive I'm playing at the moment is SOCOM 4, which is a third person shooter. It's good.

    Indecision may or may not be my problem.

    I would say this is pretty accurate of my thoughts. Actually, Tracker and I were tearing up some MAG last night. We had some great games too! Teams actually working together make for some epic moments in MAG! Still one of my all time favorites!

    I guess the rest answered your questions. I just want to say that I have never owned a Blu Ray player. I have always used my PS3.... I also dont have a DVD player. So, yeah... PS3 is the bigger bang for your buck.

    let me know when you get it and i'll hook you up with one of my fake accounts i used for free cars in gran turismo 5. They may be fake accounts but they were made prior to the cut off date so they're eligible for the 2 free games and 30 days of playstation plus and all the free stuff that comes with it. even if your internet connection sucks out there, so long as you activate the downloads in the next 30 days you're good. You could then do the actual downloading once you got back stateside and have 2 new games as a welcome home gift

    Gaming is staying up 'til 3am to earn a trophy that isn't real.......BUT IS
