Diana - the warrior princess

No no... This isn't a post about how ironical it is that Princess 'Diana was named after the Goddess of War and yet she was the most hunted person on the earth' as quoted by her brother Earl Spencer at her eulogy. Instead its about something far more trivial - PlayStation 3!!

S and I got a PS3 to go with our fabulous TV and we've been hooked ever since. We've been playing this game called 'Drake's Fortune' which for all its dramatic intros and interspersed dialogue boils down to a simple point n shoot with your gun game. It does have splendid graphics though. So all through my free time, I get to hear dialogues like "He's over here" and then bang bang of the guns and a "Son of a bitch.." or a "You've got to be kidding me" as our hero catches sight of the villains he needs to overcome. So to cut a long story short, my overimaginative brain decided to create its own night-time entertainment for me... in my dreams! And so I was Diana, this bimboistically realistic heroine who is hunting for her crown which gives her the authority to rule La-La Land... Whatever! If it wasn't enough that I hear everything through the day... I had to be fighting people all night and assuring my 'subjects' of 'good times to come'. Considering the amount of money that the papparazzi and newspapers have reeled in from the poor Princess Diana, I bet such a game probably exists in some other form in the market. As for me.. I should probably try to read and then fall asleep so that I can fuel my dreams in a different direction.

Welcome to the PS3 world! Hope you watch some movies on Blu-Ray and use some of the code I've written :) What other games have you got? I'm pretty sure S would have purchased Gran Turismo 5 Prologue too.

Hi Rats -> I am looking forward to using the Blu-Ray player as I hear its one of the best in the market. But they also say its one of the worst DVD playerS? I haven't been able to tell any difference. But is there? And no, we got this game and some car racing game. But I think till we find the fortune, we are hooked to this one. :)

Reading and falling asleep is better or else your over-imaginative brain will work wonders and God knows what you are going to think of yourself next.he..he..he..

Sangeeta-> You should get into my head on a normal night and see what I do - Its ranged from saving the world's puppy dogs to a 3 tier train about to explode and what not... This was lighter in comparison. Lol.

It's not the best DVD upscaler, but I don't think it is the worst either.

Don't know whether URLs work in comments. If not search google for "PS3 DVD upscaling" and read the first article.
From my personal experience, the PS3 plays a lot of scratched DVDs that got stuck when played using my Sony DVD player.
