according to Vgcharts, Uncharted is over the 400k mark in a month time frame.. at that rate it should hit 800k in two months(which is still good), however i personally would have thought at least over 500k in a month. still makes me wonder what are most playing.. i think maybe most are just renting PS3 games like uncharted... hmmm

Just bought a PS3 Sunday after my 360 went dead again.

I'm sending the 360 back to M$ and the PS3 has been growing on me big time. I am dying to get mass effect but for just about everything else I think I will be getting the PS3 version.

After hearing all the anti PS3 stuff in here I was sceptical but I have been pleasantly surprised. I thought I would never do it but I actually boiught a couple of BD disks, it fellt kinda weird being the BD sectrion.

I just started Drake's Fortune and the graphics look awesome. I don't think facial expressions are recreated as well on the 360. COlors seemed very rich and deep. Only game so far though so I'll really tell when I try some others.

naughty dog made the game look that way on purpose(very high vibrant colors) the game wasnt meant to look "photorealistic" but more over saturated instead.. works awesome indeed. this and heavenly sword have the best character and facial animations i've seen.

SHOSHO....After another couple weeks let us all know how you like the 360 compared to the PS3. Is it really as bad as so many people on here say it is? (I won't name names) Or better yet, in your opinion is it BETTER than the 360. (ALL YOUR OWN OPINION)

Thanks SHO.

For now, Mass Effect is an X360 exclusive. Just wait till you get your X360 back as i'm sure it will just grow back on you. As for facial expressions, I would have to imagine that is upto each individual developer and how they choose to program their game engines. Same deal with colors as well. I wil probably break down and get a PS3 at some point if they drop the price anymore. I would probably be more interested in it's BDP capabilities since most of the BDP stand alones just arn't a good value. I would probably say that GT5 is going to be the game that pushes me over though, since I love racing sims.

GT5Prologue has already been released.. though only in japan(for now?).. though prologue is not the 100% final full game. i remember they did the same thing with GT3 and GT4 but releaseing these "prologue" and "concept" titles and charging a small price. i dont knwo the details of GT5 prologue but its suppose to include a few tracks and a number of vehicles, but im sure your probably more interested in the full final version. hopfully xmas 2008

I'll probably catch a lot of flak, but I really wish someone would make a PS3 controller that looked exactly like the X360's controller. I play the PS3 at my buddy's apartment every now and then, and I just can't get used to the location of those thumbsticks. Maybe it also has to do with my small hands.

Either way, i'm also curious when Forza 3 will come out...........

GT5 and another $100 price drop on the PS3 would definately make me commit to one though...........

i know what you mean. when i play my ps3 it's hard to get used to that controller again. i hated the older xbox controller and that's why i only owned a xbox for about a week before trading it in for ps2 games.

I'm glad i'm not the only one. My buddy claims that he can't ever get used to my X360 controller when he comes over, but I definately give kudos to Microsoft for designing one incredibly ergonomic controller. The original Xbox controller was a bit hard for me as my hands are rather small, and my fingers are sort of stubby.

Well, My wife got me Drakes fortune for my Birthday and I have to say that graphics wise, I think Heavenly sword is better. The Character animations in Drakes are very good, maybe a touch better than Sword. The facial expressions in Sword are better. Drake's faces have the annoying white after effects (terminology?) in the mouths and around the eyes. Swords faces are perfect. I prefer the more photo realistic backgrounds is Sword also.
