On top of the fact that the Nyko is $10 less than the Sony.
Okay. The PS3 is on order (got it through Dell, actually, at a 15% discount through my company's corporate discount program).
Here's my next difficulty...I need to connect it (and a PC that'll be in the entertainment center) to the 'net. Will a USB wifi adapter work half way decently?
How many USB ports does the PS3 have? Will I be able to use one of those Nyko remotes at the same time?
The ideal situation would be to run a network cable under my house and up into the built-in entertainment cabinet (that I won't be using because it won't fit a flat panel). But I don't think that's an option for me to do myself, because both my attic and underfloor crawlspaces are too small for my wide ass to fit into.
I use the WiFi for updates etc... and it works great.
Arright. Built-in wifi. Didn't know that.
Now I've just gotta get a wireless router.
The 80gb is the one that's on its way.
Need to get a copy of NHL 09, too. ;)
I have a 40gb with WiFi in it. I think you're confusing that with the initial 20gb model.
Now that we have a decent group of BR PS3 users, I'm curious what your settings are on the PS3 for movie playback as well as your calibrated settings for your TV. I know it differs per TV, but I'm curious to see what you folks leave your TV settings at for PS3 movies / games.
The wife and I just watched 10,000BC bluray with our PS3 on our 50 inch Panasonic plasma TV. I got no complaints. Its like PPV'ing it in HD. Oh, and NHL 09 is both exciting and frustrating. Sometimes at the same time.
I bought teh 80gb for BluRay, but am VERY happy it plays games too!!
