Hey guys,

I am also a PS3 owner and actually just looking around for some local players, since Singapore internet really sucks in terms of lag/ping to oversea servers (you might know it from playing COD4 online lol).

So if you're sick of shooting a guy in the head for 5 times, just o see him turn around and kill you with one shot, lets set up some local gaming groups.

Add me, my PS name is kamflas

Lets set up some private matches! 3 of my friends also have COD4 already or buying soon! Let's do this!

Currently I am playing COD & Dirt.

Just added logitech G25 Steering wheel to my setup.

Bought Dragon War at $59 from Funan ...its so expensive but quality is :lol:

Will be getting blu-ray disc from Amazon US so much cheaper. 8-)

I bought a blue-ray DVD (memoirs of a Geisha) and watched it on the PS3 last night - I was not too impressed, seemed like no better picture/sound quality than a standard DVD with DTS/THX enhancement, am I missing something, my expectations were for much better picture quality

I'm also a bit disappointed with the Blueray movie. I bought Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Will get the movie "300" this week. Somehow it is not like in the stores...
Although I don't have a full HD TV, only HD-ready, I expected more...

@sillingw & warcraft2003: share ur PSN names or add me 'kamflas' so we can play online!

believe it or not, my online name is sillingw :D , but we just moved house so I'm involved in setting everything up again, PS3 was running last night with 7.1 surround sound and 50inch plasma - it's awsome, but my wife is insisting that I need to get the rest of the house sorted out - sigh :?

Whats the size of your LCD TV? Mine is 40" Full HD and I seat 2 meter from it. I can see big difference between Blu-ray and DVD. Every inch of the screen is so clear and sharp whereas DVD you will notice some area a bit blur.

Cant wait to get my 8 Blu-Ray from Amazon hopefully by this week. :lol:
