well, the wiimote is design to detect pretty sensitive motions~ unless your batters were low. It happened to me once when my battery started to die and i was waving my arm and was getting tired, but felt nice lol. Even if little motion is required i still find my self waving pretty hard time to time(when i get into the heat of things!). I wish they would change the "pound A button like a madman" for recovery to "wave the wiimoote for recovery!"... it be so much easier on my poor thumb!

Weeeeell, I think I'm leaning more on playing fighting games the old fashioned way if ever on a wii-mote since actually doing or a move or something close, might not be such a good idea. 30 second, 1 point battles cos' nobody's is gonna last longer than that xD In addition, reacting to mixups is easier on a pad. Like, you can block high with just a flick of the thumb.

Is there anybody in Japan who could help me buy Mainichi Issho cosplay packs?

I'd buy it myself, but who knows when they'll actually release the PSN cards

I'm just wondering, is the net browsing really as sluggish as I've heard? Or has it been improved via updates since then? How reliable is the wifi in general?

Just the ps3 network, it changes at random times, sometimes fast sometimes sluggish.

The wifi is good, it all depends on your isp and router. My wifi is 100% signal but lags during gameplay. Then again my dsl is slow so I'm changing my isp.

Net browsing isn't exactly speedy but it's not terribly slow either. But really that's more of a "Wow look at what I can do, isn't that neat" kind of feature, no real use for it.
The WiFi is perfect, I love it. Running an ethernet cable into my room would have been a huge pain. Speeds are fast. As long as you have a good router you shouldn't see much of a difference between ethernet and WiFi.
Not being able to transfer files to your PS3 from computers on the same network is very annoying though. Having to transfer files with flash based media isn't fun.

I actually think the Wii's internet brower is a lot better than the PS3's. Just from my experience of course.

Now the Wifi when playing games, is pretty good for the most part. Few lag sessions on our side. Kayos is an exception, because he has crappy DSL :P

Who really cares about the internet browser. You bought a system to play games online not surf the web. That's why you have your pc and what not. Game consoles for gaming and computers for non-mentionable things.

The only online you should be doing with a ps3 is online gaming or browsing ps3 network store. If your off checking your emails or looking at non-mentionable sites, you're wrong.

Yes my dsl is crappy, I'm with earthlink and the tech support are all in India. I called them to upgrade my service, the guy said 15 days it'll be up. 3 months go by and nothing. Funk earthlink and their tech support.

I haven't used it very much, but I would never be able to think of a browser as "good" unless there is keyboard support for it. Wii's point-and-click keyboard is just too slow and clunky (really bad for somebody with shaky hands).

Internet Browsing from your TV is the next big thing. *remembers back to the time of WebTV....sigh...*

Wow Earthlink eh? I had them way back in the day, hated it, but it was like a free trial, so wasn't that bad. All computer related CS lines are like in India. I remember I had to call Microsoft and HP, when i was trying to install my new PC and Vista. What gear grinding experience that was....

let me redirect you, oh ok let me redirect you, oh really let me redirect you, hi what is your problem? Oh ok let me redirect you...never ending cycle

Now that's pretty bad, that's like double my dsl cost for dialup speed.

VF5 should be out today for those that care. (U.S. I mean)

I should be picking up VF5 either today or tomorrow. Have to finish my English paper before I get it. They ticking me off though, I can't seem to find a Horistick with VF5 included pack, like the Japanese got. Owellz just will have to buy them together then, $110 spent :/

It's not all bad[/sarcasm] I also get little treats like, my internet going out at random intervals, poor custmor service, horrible internet blackouts, and (My favorite) "Well it's not our fault, let me redriect you"-quest 'professional'.

I checked around the game shops (including gamestop), none had VF5. I asked the people there and they all said the same thing, "well it's suppose to be here already, I don't know."

Oh well, one, two days, or a week delay, I could wait.

Often the games are shipped on their release date, so you can only find them one day later, if not later.

Then shouldn't it be called shipped date if all it's doing is shipping from manufacturers to retailers.

Release date should be reserved for the release to the public... nvm

How much is the combo? All games are region-free (and the big ones seem to have English options), so you could always get the import if it's cheaper.

Technically yeah, but Sega recalled the High Grade Stick's in Japan, so they're like impossible to find right now. I hear they started shipping the new updated ones back to retailers and consumers this week in Japan, so still, I think it will be hard to find. Play-Asia has had them on backorder for a while.

The arcade stick they have over here in America, which is the $50 Hori one, is pretty basic. I have like 5 others that look just like it, really don't want to have to buy it
I hope Sega will ship the High Grade Sticks to NA around next week or the following. Then I'll be able to hold off for the time being, and just tough it out with the PS3 pad--which sucks nuts for playing VF
