Default Re: The big fight: Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 ?

I am getting myself a new Xbox S 4Gb with Kinect from the US. Just wondering how much would it cost to get it modded/hacked in Delhi NCR and from where?

Also, since it is a US shipped piece (NTSC), would I have trouble finding games?

Thanks!

Its been almost 3 days since my PS 3 was delivered and what an experience its been! I was pleasantly surprised when the PS 3 (from letsbuy.com) and the games (flipkart) were delivered in 3 working days flat!

I placed the order on monday and by wednesday evening i had it delivered. Superb service by both letsbuy.com and flipkart.

As for the console itself just finished NFS Run, and the overall experience was superb! Not so very happy with how Move works. You need the wireless controller+Move controller to play Top Spin 4 on the PS 3. So basically 2 people are needed to play, a tad bit disappointing this. Not sure if this is how it works for other games too.

Kinect

Wiout even a second thought move is only a mere gimmic where little of novelty factor exists, Wii is better, when it comes to kinetic you become the controller and a lot of games also support the add on in innovative ways and will only get better in coming time,

Hello

I use a US console myself and since years have never managed to have an issue with games, you just need to check the region free lists and those that are locked you can use eBay or ask someone to get it.

Btw just got back to online gaming add me if someone here wants my I'd on psn and Xbox live is " Babyzelda "


Regards,

Thanks.
I havent used the move yet but have experienced kinect a few times and its quiet good.
However it does requires some space to play it.
Will check out PS3 move also in the showroom and will get back with further queries.

my colleague is interested in buying a console for his kid (as well as for him ).

Although he is open for ps3 and xbox-kinect, i think kinect would be good for kid as there are no physical controllers.

Also how about this deal?
Brand New Seal Pack Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect (Bundle) | eBay

As usual, He also wants to know if backed up games can be played on this.
Please PM me details on this.

It's a wonderful deal, for playing backed up games you need to get it modded, something which I do not get into as it does not let you play online,

Been using the move for a month now with Sports Champions.
I find it really good, somehow just couldnt feel comfortable with the Kinect (though its brilliant) without any controller to hold. Just didnt give me the "feel" if you know what i mean

Uncharted 1 2 and 3 are perhaps the most important games on the system best is since all were made for the PS3 you will loose little in terms of story,

Then there is Metal Gear Solid 4, and now mgs hd which includes the previous games as well,

If you like RPGS get Skyrim or Dark Souls or both,

Regards,

Try Dirt 3. Varieties of rally events with high precision controls. You'll definitely like ghymkhana events. Also give Mass Effect 3 a try if you are a fan of that series. Haven't played it yet but has got very good reviews.

You will be fine but will miss a few past connections get UC 1, 2 and 3

And if you got MGS HD it comes with all past games,

These will be enough to keep you occupied and thrilled for some time,

Sony has ruined my mood, again.
After my worst vaio experience i vowed not to get a sony again. But still got the Ps3.
Got it on 14th. Didnt even played as my games hadnt arrived.
On 15th came back from office excited as games have come and the PS3 wont start!!
Gave it to sony service center today who have given me an estimate of 7-10 days atleast for repair/replacement. Not happy at all.

When i called the customer care the guy told me ps3 in india is not repaired and only replaced under warranty, is this true?
Can i do anything to expedite the matter?
