3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing blu-ray quality, 19 Nov 2012
Beautifully shot and edited film, but the blu-ray quality is very poor - grainy and pixelated in the Paris Stade De France parts which form the bulk of the live concert. I thought it might be a deliberate stylistic device but in comparison the couple of songs filmed in Montreal are pin sharp. Apparently the whole of the latter concert was filmed - a shame it wasn't all used.

A missed opportunity - just not the perfect bluray experience you would expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time, and they're excellent!, 25 Mar 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
At last wireless microphones have arrived, and they're worth the wait. Never bothered trying my PS2 wired ones with my PS3, so as soon as these were released I bought them. Nicely designed, really good chunky feel (definitely not too big) - more like professional mikes?! Natty bag to store them in. USB adaptor plugs into PS3 and in no time you're using these to sing through. No crackling on my ones - got them about 2 metres from the PS3 and they work perfect, picking up every note (good or bad!).

No negatives whatsoever. A must-have for any Singstar fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comeback, 26 Oct 2007
This review is from: Love Made Visible Ep (Audio CD)
Wonderful slice of indie pop from Southampton's The Delays. Really catchy - was humming it within minutes of hearing it. Glad they've returned with such a poppy catchy song. They should be massive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than what others have said!, 12 Jan 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I had ordered this game before reading the negative reviews, and feared receiving it! It's a lot better than I expected. Yes, it's not a super fast way of surfing the net, and will never replace a laptop or home computer, but the DS was never designed for that sort of application.

I've hooked it up to my home wi-fi and the speed is quite good - you can disable pictures which quickens things up considerably, whilst text only sites such as the optional BBC News one work a treat. Some pages loaded in 5-10 seconds. Google works well, as does Hotmail and Yahoo Mail. You soon get use to using both screens to navigate web pages, and can even save your favorite links.

I bought it so I would have a portable way of accessing the internet when I'm on holiday or traveling, and for that it's perfect. After all, the DS is primarily a games machine, so having this is a bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars They work brilliantly!, 6 Jan 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
A perfect solution if you worry about scratching your DS Lite screen. Easy to apply (with clear instructions) - just take your time to avoid air bubbles. Once on you would not know they are then - if anything the screens both look more vivid and sharp. The Touch Screen works perfectly with the stylus.

A must have accessory for any DS owner.
