New 40GB PlayStation 3s' Firmware Improves DVD Playback

playstation-31.jpgIf you’re looking for a new DVD player, apparently a PlayStation 3 is looking like a better option. That is, if you want to spend hundreds, instead of dozens, of dollars.

Kotaku brings us a post relayed from a Spanish video gaming site which revealed that the new 40 GB PS3s are going to be shipped with new firmware. This firmware enhances DVD playback, generally making the viewer happy, or so I assume.

Something needs to be a draw for the PS3 right now, because the games don’t seem to be doing it.

“because the games don’t seem to be doing it.”

Still its selling faster than the PS1 and PS2 did and outside of the US its selling faster than the 360 did as well.

Weird how some people keep ignoring that.

Too bad they couldnt include what people would want, like a Dualshock controller and backwards compatibility. Some real options, im waiting for some stats norbit, keep up the stats. you waste alot of time it appears.

PS3 games are starting to leave all others in the dust. It is impossible to compare an xbox 360 game to PS3 games anymore. I played Rachet and Clank last night and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. Its game play is awesome and its graphics are at a level I have never seen before on any console. It seems right before our eyes that the Sony PS3 is morping into a masterpiece of gaming hardware and making the Wii and Xbox 360 look like last gen consoles. Before anyone slams these comments you must have played the PS3 games to know what I am talking about. Play at a minimum Resistance Fall of Man, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Super Stardust HD, and now Rachet & Clank. Then you can qualify to assess my comments. Yes I have played both Wii and Xbox 360 games most recently Gears of War, Bioshock, and Halo 3.

Also the newest versions of COD4 and Smackdown are being rated as the better versions for cross platform. Most notably COD4 which is supposed to look absolutely gorgeous when compared to the xbox 360 version.

Dunn Wenger is a scam artist, conned us out of a lot of money and even tried to squeeze more money out of us (luckily we found out it was a scam before we sent more money). Its sad to see we weren’t the only ones screwed.
