4.0 out of 5 stars burn LA burn!, 20 Nov 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
now, i have to admit that i was never a fan of Midnight Club before i got my hands on this latest release, i really wasn't sure what to expect but seeing as it looked liked it used the same engine as GTA i decided to give it a go. damn. it is soo addictive!! the first couple of hours are a bit of a grind until you get some cash together (and change the default control set-up!!) to buy new cars, upgrades, body parts but after that it is pure foot to the floor racing all the way. you can tweak the cars to suit your driving style so handling isn't an issue at all, what is there not to love about power sliding around bends at 120mph+?? you can drive where you like, take what routes you like (unlike the recently released NFS!) and go exploring, the ramps and collectibles are fun to find. you can even set-up races/variables in arcade mode, whose rep points/cash still contribute to your main game score. a nice touch. online races are in several modes, you can race with other vehicles of the same tuning/performance class in tier, go for a straight all in race of mixed classes, take part in open cruises and show off your ride, make custom race routes.. there is a hell of a lot to this game for the money. sure, the cars are not as pretty as others such as GRiD or Gran Turismo, but you get an unlocked LA from the start, hundreds of races to take part in and a vague story mode which doesn't feel like it intrudes or limits your way of playing. This is how an open sandbox street racer should be made. thank you R* top job!!

5.0 out of 5 stars little big console fail, 22 Sep 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LittleBigPlanet (PS3) (Video Game)
we've been playing this in the office recently and you are not going to be disappointed.

after two months here is my new review:-

for all the hype, at the end of the day LBP is a fun offline platformer with a very broken online mode, and seeing as the whole selling point was supposed to be the online play/create/share concept it fails badly. the servers suffer from constant lag, your scores are never updated, often the game will freeze due to issues copying/uploading levels to/from your own moon, any levels you do 'create' run the very real risk of being moderated, sometimes just due to one other user 'griefing' it, so it gets pulled. and even then most of the levels online now are pathetic, poorly put together shabby efforts that are usually nothing more than a cheap vehicle race, trophy whoring, or heart me/heart you pleading. i thank grud at least i have the memories of being in the beta with fellow creative types who actually produced quality levels and had working servers, since it went on full public release it has gone all to hell. nice concept but let down by a pathetic online experience. you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars no transfer, no sale, 29 Aug 2008
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Play TV (PS3) (Accessory)
Sony promised this product would allow us to move recorded files to other devices, PSP etc. but pulled it at the last minute. this was really the ONLY reason anyone would buy this unit over a cheap stand alone freeview pvr with in built 80Gb for the same money. this now has less use than a pc USB DVB which allows me to move recorded files and can be picked up on amazon for £20!! IMHO people who buy this have more money than sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST BE CAREFUL, 6 Oct 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
hi, this is a PS3, what more needs to be said about it? well, first off you have to remember this is a cut down version of the original 60Gb version, not too much to concern yourselves with, BUT, this is not backwards compatable with the old ps2/ps1 titles like the 60 model is, this is due to some motherboard modifications and removal of the GF chip. other things missing are the flash/memory card slots but if you really need these you can us a standard usb card reader, just plug it into the console. the other thing is it only has 2 usb ports on the front, these can also be expanded using a standard usb hub if you need more ports too. it still has wi-fi, blue tooth, and everything else the full 60Gb model has.

4.0 out of 5 stars supercharger or cooler?, 18 Jun 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
fitted this unit and the internal temp dropped by 10*C easy, the external case is cool to the touch now. a great bit of kit for keeping everything running at speed inside. not the quitest of units but the heat it blows out the back is amazing. fits to a usb port via a wire, clips to the casing very well, a nice well designed unit. even has a little flap to cover your rear ports when moving it around.

4.0 out of 5 stars intercooled - the way to go, 18 Jun 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
unlike the others i have actually bought an intercooler for my ps3 (joytech), i have a vinal wrapped beast with additional neon 7 port usb hub running, charging dock, joypad adaptor, iMac pro keyboard.. one of the things i noticed is that after 15 minutes of use the PS3 does get warm to the touch and the big internal fan really kicks in. i rigged it up with industry standard temp gauges and it was running at 36*C, after i fitted the intercooler it dropped down to 28*C. ok so it was hardly going to explode into flames before but a cooler system is a faster system and will last longer. the case is now always cool to touch and the heat those fans kick out is quite remarkable. plus the joytech version looks sweet. (i wired a blue led into the bay housing the rear ports) ps, it runs off one of the PS3's built in usb ports and uses very small amounts of power.
