havent really been hardcore into gaming for ages, but trying to play a bit more lately.
just started playing F.E.A.R extraction point, and will then move onto Perseus Mandate. mostly racing games in my rack though. and cricket of course.

They are ridiculously overpriced.. I got lucky cos I went to brisbane modchips in marsden and he was keen to make a sale so I somehow got up the nerve to talk him down in price. (still can't believe I did that lol)

Even then it was still over $100 but it has proven to be a very useful accessory so you could almost argue that it is worth it... almost

Definately Call of Duty 4....CoD World at War just doesn't do it for me the same way. They are bringing out a Modern Warfare 2 (sort of CoD4.5) and the short look v.good.

BTW I have a Xbox 360 wireless dongle for sale if your interested... ;)

When I bought CoD [email protected], the guy said he overclock (or something like that) his Xbox live connection and now has such a good connection that he can host games, even the Americans. Is this true? Can it be done? and if so, how do I do it? I Cable and a Netgear Modem/Router and I still only get an avg. of 2 bars connection on CoD4.

Is it possible to increase this? or was the dude F of S?

Not sure about overclocking your connection. The speed you have with your ISP is what ever they allow and the wiring will allow.

Mine here in HK is very quick and I usually end up host for games from teh US, Europe and Oz...

Sometimes it sucks as the Xbox slows a bit, but its usually not a prob till you get whinging Yanks on there with yellow connections.

If your the host and the only green connection they whinge and whine. Even had a "clan" all report me to xbox live. They call and I told them. The other guys got some sort of ban.. :)

He is F of S , No matter how fast your connection is , latency will always exist because of the time it takes your signal to go to half way around the world and back. ( bout 200 - 300 ms )

You can always host a game with people from any country , But they will have a severe lag disadvantage in comparison to people that are closer to your local connection/country.

Yeah, sometimes I get all green bars. But usually I will have around 2 bars of connection with a peak of three at times.

I was just curious to see if there was any way of increasing my speed to a consistant 3 bar connection with a peak of four bars.

Amazing how I'd posted something a while ago about Xbox live and got a few comments like 'couldn't you afford a PS3?'. And look now, MORE xbox gamers on here with feedback an Q's and nothing to do with PS3 in the nerd section.

Where did they all go? I guess the PS3 was TOO expensive and there were only a couple of playstation people here :p.

I've got both a PS3 and XBOX 360. I bought the PS3 for GT5 & to play Blu rays. All good but GT5 still isn't out yet!!!!

As a general rule I find for PS3, games are always more expensive to buy and very few are actually any better than on XBOX.

PS3 is undoubtedly a more powerful console. I know of a few companies that have stripped them down and reprogrammed them to be used as brute force machines for transcoding, calculations and algorithims.

I have seen (in the flesh) a bank of 24 PS3's all hooked up & brute forcing a machine code key. Aparently its cheaper and quicker than any other system they can get their hands on.

Anyways, if the games are the same on both systems, I'll use the XBOX because they are cheaper and there are more online players.

PS3's biggest problem it that the game designers are having trouble writing games for the way the PS3 works to take full advantage of all the extra power it has. Even converting games over takes forever.

That's why only 5 or 6 games are really able to show off how good it is. Killzone 2 and one other that I can;t remember the name of (some Adventures of ......) are the best examples of the power of the PS3.

I've got CoD4 on both PS3 and XBOX, but I only play it in XBOX as there is now where near as many online players in PS3 and it looks exactly the same.

Besides, I like the XBOX controller better now I'm used to it and haev been able to mod it for rapid fire... :)

Yeah I thought it may have been temporary so I left it overnight and tried it again and it still served me a hot cup of fail...

All I can say is thank God for warranty... still 3 weeks without it while MS tinkers though and I'm pretty sure my xbl subscription is coming to an end within that time :mad:

MS normally send a one month live subscription for the troubles. At least they did for me. The only down side to warranty repair is mine came back and was noisier than before, but I just deal with it now.

Good luck with the repair.

Thanks mate

Yeah I don't care about the noise, everyone that whinges about it must be playing solitaire or something because so far I haven't played a single game that doesn't drown out the noise of the box with its music/sound sound effects...

Well oops...He he he...

I just got an email from XBOX Live...I was playing CoD4 online the other night and someones lodged a compliant against me for Cheating and Harassment...

I think it might have been when i was playing Headquarters with a bunch of guys from the US and this tool joined in...He ended up getting something like 4 & 38!!!!

We were all mucking around so I cooked a grenade, held on to it and ran into our Headquarters chanting something over Arabic the mic (you get the idea) and blew 5 of the 6 other team as well as myself up...We all though it was funny....Even the other guys from the other team did. One had Eavesdrop perk and they were all p*ssing themselves at the end of the game...

XBOX have given me a warning...Seriously...Some people need to get over themselves and get a sense of humour....I still think its funny...But I suppose that should be a warning to everyone...Don;t drink to excess and play FPS games on line with humourless Americans....
