Gamespot gave VF5 an 8.1, citing "poor singleplayer options."
http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/v...;picks;title;5

Masterful review by our lovable Jeff Gerstmann.

I'm not going to comment much on how ridiculously stupid this review is, but it's pretty damned stupid.

It's ok, thats the lame duck in the pond. All others have mostly been solid, and 8.1 isn't a bad score, but for VF it is, thats DOA worthy scores :P

The amount of SP options, can get kind of dull to the non-hardcore, and the lack of any Online features is a let down. I don't care if they didn't want to put online play in, they could added some online integration, like leader boards, replay shares, or something. Come on Sega

Question.

Why is it that the import VF5 is 1080p while the domestic version is 720p?

Because 720p in English is spelt as "High Definition" and 1080p in Japanese is spelt as "Hi-Vision"?



lol. who knows?
maybe Japanese market users have more 1080p HV displays.

meh, why care? 720p is still HD, not like your eyes can tell the difference anyway

well in the DS case, Nintendo actually couldn't ship enough to meet demand, which is why the numbers are on the low side--for DS numbers. The DS actually sold out during Late November-January....it's a evil demon

Glad we agree

Anyways, heres some new Tekken 6 info
Quote:
*Leo has been confirmed to female by the director. Hmmm....Not sure? We'll see. The very idea that this has been a hot topic all over the net is a tad perturbing.

*Leo's martial art style is similar to Akira's in VF but with her own original style added.

*Leo is also similar to Paul(Paul's daughter??) and was made to attract people who are new to the franchise.

*There will be more than 2 new characters. I think I saw one of them in the promotional trailer and it appears to be another girl who has a fighting style that resembles Lion from Virtua Fighter.

*Was that Lei in the trailer? Sure looked like it to me.

*Stages will be very different from previous tekken and will have lots of strategic usage.

*Customization is going to be a huge part of the game.

*Characters will obviously receive new moves and new motions to make the game feel fresh.

*I've heard the game is right now only 15% which I think is somewhat believable
and an extended video interview with the director(in Japanese) shows more footage and what not
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mby6w5qCKVk

*Ninja Edit achieved*

VF, tekken, all MEH.

don't like fighting games, they are all the same, just looks pretty thats all.

isn't there ANY games to perk my interest in the PS3?

I saw the F1 screen shots and i must admit it looks nice, but I hate F1 its boring, if they did a Rally version, well, I'll be interested.

I'll be even more interested if they bring on a light gun style game, i got so used to the Wii FPS point-shoot-and-scoot method, where is it on the PS3? or for that matter he Xbox360? where are those FPS games? I liked Halo but after all that dual joystick compared to wii controls im having doubts getting a xbox360 for it.

I have to wait, maybe PS3 will bring something out, but come on, at leased throw me something?

you're doing too much thinking, just enjoy your Wii for now :P

As for Rally games, there is the Collin McRae game coming out on PS3/360/PC sometime this year, or next.
http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/driv...om_clk=gsimage

Or maybe GT5? That will have a good mix, rally included.

What are you guys talking about I'm still rocking RFOM and RR7. I already ended both the games but the online play is still good. I'm still raising my ranks in RFOM, halfway up there but once I've reached the highest ranks then I can call it quits.

For RR7, it's always fun to race others...

too bad VF5 doesn't have any online tournament though.

Who would of thought that one of the PS3 best looking titles, and best looking games period this gen, would be Hot Shots Golf 5....

http://www.playsyde.com/news_4038_en.html

The environments look amazing, but the characters seem out of place with the realistic environments.

The hell you say. The game looks amazing who cares if the characters are out of place, it's like throwing a pirate in barbies world... it'll only add flavor to it.

Sadly to say I'm not much into golf but it looks fun though.

lol can't help it. They remind me of those old Christmas TV specials with the clay looking people. I'm not a big fan of golf either, well playing it as a video game, but I may just give this a play just to look at the peeerty graphics.

Hey y'all...I've got a problem, and maybe some of you might have an idea as to the answer?

I've been hooking up my PS3 to my 22" Westinghouse monitor. The path goes from my PS3 to PS2 component cables to a Psyclone signal chooser to my quality component cables to my monitor.

I started out hooking up directly to the monitor via multi-av and never had the problem I'm about to describe.

Now, when I play a game or watch the movie, the screen will randomly go blank for a second or so and then come back- this is in the middle of gameplay or the film, itself, so it's quite distracting. Sometimes it only happens once every hour. Other times- like yesterday when I was playin flOw- it will happen four times in the span of 5 minutes. Has anybody heard of anything like this?

My best guess would be the PS2 component cable. I'm not sure whether it was new, and I don't know what brand it is- bought it online and the packaging was sparse. But it could be something entirely different. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: OH...and I should add that I haven't had this problem with the 360, which is also hooked up to the same signal chooser and uses the same normal component cables.

Don't worry that's just some white noise from the dead spirit trying to communicate with you. No biggie. That happens to me all the time, especially in the middle of the night when I'm trying to sleep. The tv would just turn itself on.

But on the more serious side for your case why not just go back to your old settings if the new settings are causing problems. Can't say I have that problem, my ps3 is hooked up straight to my tv.

My old setting were through the the COMPOSITE cable that came with the PS3. That means the highest setting is 480 (can't remember whether I or P). It's unacceptable to run your PS3 in 480i. The only thing I did beyond switch from composite to component is run it through the signal switcher, but like I said, I haven't had any problems with the 360, which is also hooked up to the switcher.
