If anyone wants to make some money off that toys r us deal buy portal 2 and la noire and then return them to walmart without a receipt. Even though you won't get cash you'll still get a walmart giftcard for about $120.


such an infamous thing to do.

I stream HD fine, with no transcoding, through a wired connection. If there is any issue or if I happen to be using wifi, I just wait the few minutes by opting to copy the file onto the PS3 from the media server.

how big are the files you are playing
Jun 21, 2011 @ 10:42
Have any of you ran into a movie torrent that has that new marking or something that doesnt allow the file to be played back on certain hardware, like the PS3??
Some new movies were made with some kind of protection and it cant be burned or copied over to anything, you have to watch it with certain codecs on your pc.. I forget what its called.

Typically <10GB 720p rips

I don't normally download 1080p.

there you go, that.
I downloaded a Kung-Fu Panda 2 file and when I transferred over to my thumb drive to watch on the PS3, I get that stupid fuckin message!! Is there way to watch it aside from the PC??!

On a side note, I finally started to play Infamous from that free download deal and it seems pretty cool. I like that whole freeworld-exploration vibe, like Grand Theft Auto. I just started, so I have tons to learn.

There are a few posted workarounds to Cinavia, but I haven't tried them.

wowwww, for the toys r us coupon,

i went to two different locations and both had signs stating that the "2 for $50 ps3/xbox games" was incorrect on sunday's ad, and that the correct one is "purchase 2 of those titles @ reg price, THEN a $50 gift card"

so pissed. . whack. wasted my time and ink, that deal was too good to be true
Jun 22, 2011 @ 16:02
That is bullshit
Jun 22, 2011 @ 16:08
That is bullshit


i know, i drove like 30 miles to the other toys r us today AND i got lost for like 20 mins, went to the closer one yesterday.

either they really did make a mistake, or they just realized what a deal this was for us and changed it last min, bullshit big time ?)
Jun 22, 2011 @ 17:45
theyre forced by law to give you the deal if its been printed.


not if they put out a sign that says there was a misprint in the advertisement.

:p

I want to see the world burn

Jun 30, 2011 @ 00:05
Wtf, lmfao. I purchased the ps3 when that shit first came out for $600, got yellow light after 2 years, sent it in to be refurbished for $149.00 +tax, got yellow light again a year and a half later, sent it in again for a 120 slim version for $149.00 +tax.

No free games or even a controller for their faulty hardware.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sour as fuck.
Jun 30, 2011 @ 00:37
you should have gone off at their customer support line, and gotten something free...

I lol'd at this.

Nikkas act like we don't get discounts or free shit.

but we don't have to pay to get discounts or free shit. It's already included in our membership. We even get to vote for the shit we want to get a discount on smokeyface.

Not sure but I think the author of the article forgot to mention that you also gotta spend money regardless of the fact that you're getting a discount.

How many of those nikkas are actually going to get their moneys worth? Isn't the subscription $50? I doubt many will even spend over that.

But you have to spend money.

What if a nikka paid 50 for the subscription and only ended up buying 1 thing from the marketplace.

That nikka dropped 50+ which he could've used for supreme or a game.

My xbox live ran out smh

Im really considering a ps3 but the only thing

+, the hacks on the ps3 are ridiculous.
Jul 02, 2011 @ 16:41
Fuck your friends, buy a ps3 and enjoy that shit son. You won't be disappointed

You pay for the membership though, how is that different?
