You should visit Palika more often and that Shocked smiley won't be there for long!

According to some reports, the Asian stock was sold out too!!
But then, Palika is always Palika, naa!!!!

Don't buy those, they are pre-production prototypes with buggy software. They are probably given out free to 'test' and these people want to make a killing out of it.

Zak - The Palika guys never cease to amaze me!! Anyways these units are from either SE Asia or Japan and are not pre-production types. Availability is also limited but if you have the cash they have the goods with a small goodwill warranty thrown in if you know the owner well!

Yes. I know that part. Knowing a shop owner in PALIKA is much better than the authorised warranty sometimes.

I've never returned from Delhi without visiting PALIKA atleast once.

BTW, Does anybody in the forum own a PS3? Owning will tell the realities of the hype and hoopla.

iraghava, It looks like (from screenshots on gaming sites) I was playing Minna no Golf 5 on the PS3 and that I was watching Genji: Days of the Blade on the Bravia. Both these games are for the PS3. But I agree with your point. My take is that the games that can fully exploit the potential of the PS3 may not even be in the market yet.

While on the topic, its interesting to note that while a good chunk of the processing power on the PS3 and the XBox360 go towards the visuals, a significant amount is available for bots AI. These are not immediately noticable unless you play the game for a while. Games like Call of Duty 2 that make use of these facets soon become the reason for addiction

Man I'm lucky to have a friend who owns a Ps3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii with a 42" plasma... anyways have tried out all consoles... all rock but I have picked XBOX 360 premium and installed the crack that allows you to play pirated games... 300-350 a game... Xbox 360 is awesome and most practical for us Indians.. Ps3 is brilliant... the bluetooth controllers and stuff are sweet but not practical in India.. The games as of now dont make full use of the ps3's capabilities... Bluray games will be very expensive to buy in India. Nintendo Wii is brilliant... graphics arent that good but the motion sensor remote controls are awesome!! playing golf, bowling etc Rocks
