New Ps3 Owners Hints And Tips

Did you know you can play games from any country as PS3 games are region free, so if you are on holiday in the states or Hong Kong, you can take advantage of the weak dollar and stock up on some games to keep you going for a while and some games are released in other countries first so you could be one of a few people playing that game in the UK. But remember Blu-rays are region encoded so don’t buy any from abroad because they won’t work!

There is also a secret video reset button, which comes in handy when you are moving your playstation 3 around and connecting to different sets, maybe you are moving it to your bedroom or taking it round to your friends house, but when you connect it the screen is blank! This is because the new TV you are connecting to is a different resolution to the last one or maybe using a different cable and because you can’t see anything on the screen there is nothing you can do about it! Well now you can do something about it, turn off your PS3 and restart it but this time hold the power button for about 10 seconds, this will reset the PS3 to its most basic 480p graphics mode so now you should be able to see enough to choose HDMI, component, RGB SCART or whatever from the screen.

Is there anything worse than playing  Call Of duty 4 online (or any other online game for that matter that you can’t pause) and you are in the lead only for your controller to run out of charge! As the pad itself doesn’t tell you how much charge is left, how do you know? Well you can check your charge by pressing and holding the PS button a screen will appear and show you how much charge you have left in the pad as a battery type icon , 3 blocks = full charge, 1 block = nearly empty.

Upgrade your hard drive! Not satisfied with the space on your hard drive? You can upgrade your hard drive to 500gb with ease, and what’s more Sony support this, we upgraded ours to 250gb in less than 30 minutes and you only need a screwdriver to remove 5 screws, we have written a full detailed article with pictures to show you how to do this on our website, and you can buy a 250gb hard drive for less than 26 ($50) so it won’t break the bank!

Free video calls with your PS3? Yes it can be done quite easily and all you need is an eye toy (and the person you are making a call to needs one as well!) simply plug the eye toy in and go to ‘Friends’ on your PS3 menu highlight the friend you want to talk to and press triangle. Now choose ‘start new chat’ and type a message to your friend (who must be online on their PS3!) it might be worthwhile texting your friend before you start this to make sure they are go online. Once they receive the message they have to accept your video chat. Once this is done two windows will then open on your screen, one screen will show yourself and the other will show your friend and away you go. You can invite more friends if you want, because the PS3 supports up to 6 video chats at once. This is an excellent way of keeping in touch with friends and family members, especially if you live some distance away, and the best thing is it’s free!

Is there a game that you just keep getting stuck on? Well you can find game saves on the internet with ease to help you out and get past the tricky bit, go to google and type ‘PS3 game saves’ and it will bring up loads of sites that contain half completed and completed games. Simply save the game save that you want to your pc, then transfer to a memory stick, put the memory stick in your PS3 then go to the game section on your menu, go to ‘game saves ‘ and highlight the memory stick and you should see the game save that you saved, select it and press triangle to copy to your PS3 and hey presto you can start from were you want. I personally don’t like this method as I think it’s cheating, but there is another option, there are plenty of walkthroughs on the net, e.g search for ‘MGS4 walkthrough’ on google and loads of sites will come up with full game walkthroughs where you can find the info you need to beat that boss or get past where you are stuck, and if that doesn’t work go to the official PS3 forum and ask for help, someone is bound to have done the bit you are stuck on and help you out.

You can also turn your ps3 on by using your control pad. When the PS3 has been shut down and left on standby if you are feeling lazy grab hold your  PS3 controller and turn your controller on by pressing the PS button, keep the button pressed down for a couple of seconds and your PS3 will magically spring into life. You can also turn off the PS3 using the controller by pressing the PS3 button for a couple of seconds while your PS3 is on, this will bring up a screen where you can select ‘turn of system’ if used this will put your system into standby, so there’s no need to get up off the couch after you have exhausted yourself playing your favourite game.

Give your mates your downloads, have you downloaded any games off the playstation network, like tekken 5, war hawk, gran turismo etc… then you can also let your mates download them, and even charge them a small fee to cover your own costs. This is because the playstation network allows you to download your downloads 5 times, in case you change your hard drive or have to get your PS3 repaired, all you have to do is go on your mates PS3 and create a new user, once logged on as the new user sign into the playstation network with your login details and go to ‘downloads’ there will be a list of all the content you have previously downloaded off the network, select the game you want and download it to your mates PS3. Always keep one download for yourself though in case your PS3 should breakdown, as you will have to pay for the game again if you have used up your 5 downloads!

Halo 3 Xbox 360 Video Game

The much awaited third part of the Halo series has it’s release date set. Here are a few facts about the new features in the game.

The ‘Halo’ series is said to be a turning point in the ‘first person shooter’ genres of games. Not since ‘Quake’ has a game received such adulation from gamers from all walks of life. ‘Halo’ was instrumental in getting ‘first person shooter’ gamers who were straying the ‘third person shooter’ path, particularly with games like ‘Max Payne’ being much more entertaining than other ‘first person shooter’ games – before the Halo series was launched.

The series has two games released and one to be released very soon. The game, titled ‘Halo 3′ for now will be released for the Xbox. The first game in the series, ‘Halo: Combat Evolved’ was the launch title for Microsoft’s XBox. While the game will surely have numerous enhancements, the gaming world is rife with rumors and facts about the game.

One official announcement has said that Halo 3 will end the story line that had been started in Halo 1. This may be an end of the Halo trilogy. The game will be released in late- 2007. Beta testing of the multi player features of the game are expected to be launched on May 16.

Bungie Studios has always given gamers feature and graphics rich games. It had made ‘Oni’ while ‘third person shooters’ were just testing the tides of gaming waters. For it’s latest offering, Bungie Studios, now bought over by Microsoft Game Studios, will offer HDR lighting for Halo 3. Also,the draw distance in the game will be more than 10 miles. It remains to be seen whether the draw distance will make a difference to the AI and the interactivity in the game. Halo 3 will also incorporate real time reflections on certain surfaces.

Much of the atmosphere, like the foliage and other kinds will have physics enabled and will therefore react to player’s presence, bullet shots and throw real time shadows and effects. Other atmospheric effects, like dust, water and wind will be physics enabled. Simply put, nothing in the game will be mere eye candy. Everything will be a moving and working effect in the game.The final game may also see seagulls, cockatoos and other fauna.

The game play of the game is also said to be extensively revamped. The Artificial Intelligence in the game will be enhanced. The enhancements include ‘Brute Mentality’, the Marine’s shootingskills on Warthogs, and other maneuvers during battle. Even the controller of the game will be seeing a change, with the right bumper used as the action button, while the X button will be used for a as yet undisclosed action in the game. Players will further be able to record in game audio and video and transfer it through the XBox live.

Along with futuristic gameplay, Halo 3 has more than eleven human weapons and around twelve covenant weapons. The weapons range from the MA53 assault rifle to the W/AV M6 Grindell/Galileian Nonlinear Rifle (Spartan Laser). The covenant weapons range from Particle Beam Rifle to Covenant Plasma Cannon. There is a undisclosed new weapon in the Covenant range of weapons.

‘Halo 3′ also sees a flurry of human as well as covenant vehicles. The human vehicles range from M12 LRV Warthog to the M808B Scorpion tank, while the Covenant vehicles start from the Banshee to the Chopper.Therefore, Halo 3 weapons and vehicles should keep the average gamer quite content for a while.

The game will be released in three versions, Standard, which will comprise of only the game, Limited edition, which will have a Metal Collector’s Edition Case, The Making of Halo 3 and a Halo Collector’s Source Guide. The Legendary Edition will have MJOLNIR battle armor game case,

The Making of Halo 3, Halo Collector’s Source Guide, an exclusive disc of cut scenes, commentary and a featurette on a day at Bungie along with Key Moments Story art by Lee Wilson.A multiplayer beta will be released in the Spring of 2007. The beta will have two new Halo Maps.

Ps3 Birds Of Prey – This Is Unbelievable!

Ps3 Birds of Prey is a World War II era video game focused on fighter-plane battles over major famous European war areas of the time period-Stalingrad, Sicily, Korsun, Berlin and Britain. It is based on real and famous battles and strives to be accurate and exciting at once. It includes fighter planes and aerial battles as well as heavy bombing.
The graphics in the game are extremely well-done. When your plane or planes are damaged, the game updates the image to reflect this. It is a real-time damage effects engine. Aerial fights result in damage to the proper parts of the planes; planes leave behind real-world like effects. Birds of Prey is especially adept at large-scale missions-often times including many planes at once launching air battles as well as some ground missions based on historical battles that actually occured.
Also especially realistic are the aircraft featured in Ps3 Birds of Prey-this is definitely a game that a World War II enthusiast or even survivor [not that many of these types of people are buying video games, but you never know] could enjoy without decrying inaccuracies that often infiltrate new Ps3 games. Sure, it’s not perfect, but the creators of Ps3 Birds of Prey have obviously attempted to create a game that is well-researched and crafted.

This realism includes everything from extremely accurate aircraft actually used during WWII to targets based on real historical events from World War Two era Eastern and Western Europe, not battles that are only tangentially related to history. It also extends into gameplay simulation, great music and many visual details. The sound in Birds of Prey is great and also very realistic.
Perhaps the greatest advantage is the extent to which you can customize things while you’re playing. It’s up to you to decide how hard it is, what colors and styles you see, even how the planes look. It’s fun to control and change the game at will, making it turn out the way you wish, at least somewhat. You can pick your own personal game-playing approach, your firearms, your airplanes, etc.
Taking everything into account, its attention to detail makes Birds of Prey stand out. A wonderful historical World War Two period game, Birds of Prey incorporates numerous engaging features. Birds of Prey is a fantastic selection for those who look for rapid-fire game with a real-world tale.

Rockband Wii – Have You Tried This Video Game Yet?

Guitar Hero Wii has given countless non-rockers the chance to feel like a rock star over and over again. This game and other music-game playing gadgetry have become so overwhelmingly popular of late. If you have not played before, you may be wondering why they are so popular. If you are one of the lucky ones who have played before, then you already understand why.

Guitar Hero Wii and its long time competitor, Rockband Wii, allow us to pick a guitar and pretend that we are rocking out like Slash fro Guns N Roses. We get to play hard, rock out with friends, and enjoy the adulation of a simulated audience, all without the years of study, practice and devotion of real rock stars.

These games have grown increasingly popular while all the guitar-game franchises compete to beat the rest and have the most awesome game. With the multitude of bonus features, today you can play not just the guitar, but percussion as well, in addition to being the lead singer, creating your own rock star persona, modifying instruments, downloading extra tunes, and even recording your own songs.

Reviews are mixed about which franchise is the most awesome, but it seems that Guitar Hero Wii has the edge. Most people seem to prefer the bigger list of songs that are shipped with Guitar Hero. The Guitar Hero playlist has over 80 song titles from stars like Billy Idol, Coldplay, Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, and Van Halen.

Guitar Hero has guitars and drums that are more realistic. While they may not look the best, they are heavier and therefore feel more like a real guitar than what is offered by Rockband. Reportedly the accessories the come with Guitar Hero are much sturdier and do not break as easily.

Overall, it seems that better reviews have been given to the games in the Guitar Hero franchise, like Guitar Hero Wii and Guitar Hero Xbox 360. That is because it possesses the features to make the everyday guy feel like he is truly a rock and roll star. It is great for any group of friends to gather around the big screen and have fun rocking out together.

Top Rated Ps3 Games: Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed is certainly one of the most impressive and exciting PS3 Games ever developed by Ubisoft. The same team, which created the outstanding and popular Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, spent two years in order to produce this visually stunning, stylish, and very original game. Assassin’s Creed offers a whole new level of gaming adventure with its awesome lifelike animation, freer movement of the characters, good graphics and sound, and other special features like you’ve never seen before in other PS3 Games.

A quick look at Assassin’s Creed might remind you of other recent and top rating PS3 Games. For, this game boasts of an incredibly controllable hero and an almost lifelike animation just like the Prince of Persia. Moreover, the game has an astounding medieval setting, a visually stunning lifelike cityscapes, and an open-ended game play that is very similar to that of Oblivion. The ps3 game also reminds us of the Thief series for its resourceful, independent, and inconspicuous hero as well as the anti-medieval-establishment background. Then, the open-ended sandbox world of Assassin’s Creed is also comparably with Grand Theft Auto. Amidst certain similarities with other games, Assassin’s Creed is still a standout with its surprising twists and it’s creative and beautifully designed visual style. All these features add to the uniqueness of the game.

"Nothing is true. Everything is permitted." And so goes the creed of the assassin. These words suggest that anything is possible during the entire game. This exciting and action-packed adventure is set in the late 12th century during the Third Crusade under the leadership of Richard Lionheart. Here, you play as Altair, the fearless and powerful assassin armed with a sword, a wrist blade, and crossbows. The hero is surrounded by aggressive threats in all places and yet he can destroy them all instantly with his fast and cunning counterattacks to his enemies. Assassin’s Creed, indeed, is one of the PS3 Games worth playing.

The people’s reaction to Altair is another thing, which sets apart Assassin’s Creed from the rest of the PS3 Games. While the hero is busy fighting or demonstrating his skills and tactics, you could see the people around visibly frowning or raising their eyebrows as they watch him. A perfect example for this is the scene where Altair attacks a random civilian. As the victim drops to the ground, the villagers stand in shock while others run away from the place screaming.

You might be wondering where the hero’s name comes from. Altair is an Arabic word, which means "the flying eagle." Indeed, the developers of the game made sure that the character would really live up to his name. If you want to find out why, just watch Altair’s rapid and swift movements each time he faces his opponents. He projects a cool attitude even in the middle of a big fight. Altair is distinct from other heroes in PS3 games with the fact that his movements look so real and good to the players. The game’s animation is simply visually stunning and lifelike. Assassin’s Creed is truly one of the best PS3 Games ever created by Ubisoft. The whole adventure is worth checking out.

The Sims 2: Pets Cheats and Cheat Codes for PS2

The Sims is the game which singlehandedly changed the way the world looked at games. Here are some cheats for it’s expansion pack, The Sims 2: Pets. 

The Sims 2: Pets Cheats and Cheat Codes for PS2
Enlarge Image
The Sims may be the only product in the entire world which has had such a huge effect on the way the entire industry is seen. While a few years ago, gaming enthusiasts would be speechless when questioned about what else did games provide other than instant gratification and violent entertainment, The Sims quickly proved that computer video games were much more than walk, shoot and kill.

The Sims was different from almost every other game available in the market at that time, and catered to the intellectual as well as the person on the street. It may also be the first game in gaming history which never had any violence.

The Sims allowed the player to run the lives of their designed characters. Once the players prepared their character, they would have to see that their seven basic needs were fulfilled – hunger, energy, comfort, fun, hygiene, social, bladder and room. Along with these needs, the player also had to maintain the living standards, personal and professional lives of the characters created.

The game was an immediate, runaway hit. Game fans soon developed their own language, and with the advent of online gaming, started creating their own families. The Sims had seven expansion packs, with each expansion pack adding another concept of life to the characters.

The Sims had a total revamp in the form of the The Sims 2. Like it’s predecessor The Sims 2 was a colossal hit and has had a few expansion packs already. In The Sims: Pets the Sims could own pets like cats and dogs, and wormrats. This expansion pack concentrates on the pets, and the Sims have to make sure that the pets live their lives to the fullest.

Here are the Sims 2 Pets cheats for the PS2. These are the cheats for the Sims 2 Pets for the PS2, which will enable the players to play the game easily.

To get the Cheat Gnome in the Sims2 : Pets, press L1, L1, R1, X, X and D Pad Up.

The 3 Top-rated Video Game Consoles

Selecting the right gaming console is a big consideration which requires study of different features offered by different leading brands and the selecting the right unit according to one`s requirements and needs.

There are three top companies in the gaming industry; Sony, which developed the PS3 and the PSP. Then you have possibly one of the oldest names in gaming of the three with the Nintendo Wii. Finally you have the Xbox360 engineered by computer giant Microsoft Inc. These can all be exciting decisions but each have their own particular advantages.

By discussing the major features and the corresponding advantages and disadvantages of these leading models, we will be in a position to decide upon selecting the right video game console for ourselves. There are several factors such as the price of the console, graphics capability, games selection and other features such as touch screen, portability and online features which guides in the selection of right type of video game console.


Nintendo Wii Remote

The Wii is a seventh generation video game console invented by Nintendo, a Japanese company. The Wii remote is the most distinguishing part of this gaming console. The remote controls the console instead of a joystick. It uses a sensor bar to point at the LEDs on the console. The player is free to gesticulate or use the buttons provided on the remote. The remote is connected wirelessly via Bluetooth. An optional remote jacket is provided to prevent accidental falling and breaking of the remote. A Nunchuk unit, replete with two trigger buttons is an additional feature of Wii.

The Wii menu provides six main channels and other additional channels can be downloaded via the internet. The Wii is compatible with all its other predecessors. The Wii has been showered with many technological awards for its breakthrough efforts in gaming consoles.

Xbox 360

Microsoft XBOX360 Control

Microsoft came up with Xbox 360 to add variety to the already exciting range of video game consoles. Three different options are available as far as the Xbox 360 consoles are concerned. They are `Arcade`, `Premium` and `Elite`. The three variants are very different in configuration, games and also price.

The Xbox 360 integrates chatting and exercises with its gaming console to provide additional interest. Users can display pictures and play music while playing games on the console. Xbox 360 provides several online features on Xbox Live which enable the user to access a variety of other games. In fact, one of the major attractions of Xbox 360 is the number of games available. About 1000 games are available in Xbox 360.

PlayStation 3

Sony Playstation 3 Control

The PS3 is a home video game console by Sony. It is also a seventh generation video game console like Wii and Xbox 360. Online download of games and various other forms of interaction is achieved through PlayStation Network. A multitude of accessories can be wired into PS3 which include camera and remote. Photographs can be viewed; and music and movies played with ease. High-definition graphics are the major attraction in PS3.

PlayStation 3 also provides a wireless controller charged with a USB cable. Due to difficulties in manufacturing the Blu-ray format, production of the 20, 40 and 60 GB PS3s have been discontinued. High price is serving as a deterrent for PS3`s sales.

Wii Mario Kart – Addictive Family Fun

I haven’t purchased many games for my Wii. The truth is I don’t have a lot of time or money to spend on video games. But one day I got an email from my brother letting me know that he had purchased Mario Kart and suggested the rest of the family get it so we can play together online.

Mario video game

So that started my Mario Kart envy.

I went out and purchased the game along with a couple of steering wheels. It turned out to be some great family fun.

My kids love it. Granted, they don’t win many races, they still have fun.

My six-year-old daughter plays by herself and generally takes last place. It is quite easy to pick up. She just has to hold the gas and turn the wheel.

My 3 year-old son on the other hand has a more difficult time. I generally help him steer and together we can win some races.

If I just want to let them play together, there are some courses that let them just drive around and collect coins or try to pop other racers balloons. This is generally more enjoyable for them.

My wife, who is not a video game fanatic also enjoys Mario Kart. I can still hear her telling me that our family will never have video games. Her tune has certainly changed! She can get quite competitive in her little go-kart!

For me, I enjoy playing on my own and unlocking new vehicles, players and stages. It can be a nice stress reliever – unless its a close race, then it can get stressful!

The steering wheel controls are much more responsive than I expected them to be. I wondered how well it would work. We have Wii Play and the cow racing can be a little hectic with the controls. The steering wheel actually performs quite nicely.

That being said, if I am playing by myself, I will generally use the numchuck controller. Why? It gives me more precise handling and I find I can usually win by a greater margin. We currently only have one numchuck control and I hate to use it playing against my family because I think it gives me an unfair advantage. Besides, I’m just too darn good, even with the steering wheel!

To be honest, I have never video came console since the original Nintendo, so I can speak to how the game compares to past versions of Mario Kart. While I have played the game in the past with others who owned it, I never did know much about it and generally lost every race. Now, after only a couple of weeks worth of practice, I think I would feel comfortable challenging my old friends to a game of Mario Kart!

And on that note, I think I could. They may live miles away, but all it would take is a phone call and we could get online and play each other if they also have a Wii and a copy of Mario Kart. How cool is that?

The Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360) has been remodeled to look like New York city, which is much better than the earlier edition. The total game area is immensely designed with graphics and illustrations; as such there is no wasted space like desert or country side. This free style crime series has been introduced to the new generation of electronic gaming consoles for the first time. This adventurous crime series elaborates the story of Nicko Bellic, who arrives in America after receiving invitation from his cousin Roman. Nicko comes to America to fulfill his sublime desire of earning easy money and women. But everything turns wrong and he gets overburdened with debt.
