Resistance 2 Features for PS3

Platform: PS3 Check Price

With Microsoft's move to cut the price of all Xbox 360 models in the UK the automatic reaction by everyone is to ask when Sony will cut the price of the PlayStation 3. Sony isn't in the same position as Microsoft though and a price cut might not be as necessary as it's being made out to be. We put our heads together and came up with the Top 10: Reasons why the PS3 doesn't need a price cut.

10. Free online play

Don't want to pay £40 a year to play online games? On the PlayStation 3 all your online gaming is free. While some of the functionality seen in Xbox LIVE isn't currently present, Sony is continuing to improve the PSN service. With network-wide friends lists access starting to appear in more and more PS3 games, Xbox LIVE is slowly being caught up.

9. Home

This online virtual network where you'll be able to meet up with friends, share content and organise online game is unlike anything available on the Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE. With Sony working on new content for their games accessible via Home, it's certainly looking like more than a novelty virtual chat room. Being able to head over to a mate's online apartment, chat to the gathered friends and then seamlessly head off into a game sounds good to us.

I think these are basically all valid points. Although tbh I wouldn't mind paying a bit for psn every year if they made it really amazing. Although I doubt it would go down very well.

What on Earth? Some of these reasons aren't even relevant to price and you used 'games' twice.

Well honestly game data that is installed on the ps3 when inserting a game for the first time can be as big as 1.5 - 2gb! I have 2 albums 50 photos and 4 reg films on my HDD with game saves and data, and i only have 15gb left! Karlius has filled his HDD with simlair stuff but i am thinking that Sony will release future content etc like pain that will need alot of space.

Be around 2gb each High Def and 800MB per regular film. I currently have 620gb on my 360 and most of that is movies and music stored on my external 500gb hdd. It has no problems addressing it. I don't think you can save games to it though? I haven't tried anyone know if you can?

There's no way you're going to use up 320GBs of memory with that. Not unless you have almost every game on the console and 100s of song, etc. (although I'm not sure how much the movies will use up)

Sorry had to point that out! Im going to be upgrading my HDD to 320gb and then not have to worry for a long long time :D

po3mone stop take a breath and read what your writing! Pure and utter fanboyism. Nothing you say makes sense and is full of rumour, speculation with no fact. Please go join a playboyism site.

Have you gone around all 120 million of the PS2 owners and asked them their intentions? Statistics are nothing if you pluck them out of your bum! 79.6% of people know that! lol.

As for 360 games on the PC some of the games can appear on PC mainly the ones that also appear on the PS3 but you get some exclusives such as Halo appear on PCs as Microsoft (World Leading OS Distributer) Gets money from it. But there are plenty of games not on PC for example Project Gothem and Crack Down.
