What The PS3 Can Do - Page 5

post #41 of 242
Mike looks like a good list, seeing as in how I have a PS3 (the $599 one). The lists looks like what I have. Well Done

How about the tilt functionality of the controller? And the maximum number of controllers? (7, I believe).

Maybe you should also add PSHome, because it's free.

If anyone is willing to start up a 360 faq ill be more then happy to help. I wish i could help with the PS3 but i do not have one at the time.
Youre right, you don't need a Media Center on your PC, only Media Center Extender I believe it is, which you can download. I've streamed stuff from XP Pro to the 360 before. But it's through Media Center on the 360. If there's a way around MC on the 360 I'm all ears!

I think the 360 is going to be around for quite a while, at least into 2010. Look how long the PS2 has lasted. It remains to be seen how the PS3 and 360 will compete in the years ahead but I think both consoles will be around for quite a while...I wouldnt worry.

Good idea with the controllers. I'll add that in there. And I'll add Home once it comes out. I think that's going to be a big deal for PS3 owners.

And thanks for the comments guys!

Nice job man, I call for sticky

In my opinion PS3 is the most elegant system of all. With a small HDD upgrade & it would be the best media hub for the money.

Some great movie utilities: PS3 Video 9, PS3 Media Center X.

All you need to do is use Windows Media Player 11 or the Zune software and you can access all your shares from the Media blade in the 360's dashboard.

Didn't know that. I'll have to play around with it!

got a little typo...it says "Charged vis USB". Am I being a nag or what?

Might want to add "can be used in a cluster (~150 consoles) as the servers for an entire game's online players", or something like that.

I've been thinking of picking on up and now I think I might. I can get a 60g one for 350ish, so that helps.

You act like Sony creates hundreds of games a day or should...It doesn't happen like that. It takes up to and sometimes multiple Years to make a single game, and they require a nice chunk of dough, so just be happy that it has good games coming out in the future instead of lackluster unoriginals like the other 2 consoles.

That's Matroska right there, but it still might be unable to understand the MKV index.
