Well if this generation of Sony is any indication, the PS4 will not be able to play PS3 games. So if you want to enjoy all the masterpieces of the PS3 you might want to pick one up.

i'd say this would be a major concern for me re: the next-gen Playstation...

and anyway, even if the PS4 does hit soon, it won't have any non-launch amazing games for it until at least a year in, so you're not only looking at a wait until the PS4 is announced (much less released), you're waiting for that lead-in time for really good games to start cropping up, too. same problem with the Wii U; no matter when it finally hits you're still going to be waiting, waiting, waiting. there's always something better around the corner, true, but where do you personally draw the line and start enjoying what's available now that you want to play? that's probably what you should be asking yourself :3

@Syf: i suppose everyone's experience with the game is different, but i've never had a problem with people picking Maka Wuhu constantly — or with being able to drop out and match up with a new group of randoms with ease, for that matter.

Yes. Using the glitch makes you a jerk. Especially you, TJ — you're first-ranked in the NL racing community, you've probably got astronomical VR atm; what do you need to cheat for? it's one race out of how many? if you're with a big group of randoms picking it over and over, just drop out and rejoin to get a new group of randoms.

idk how many times i've raced Maka Wuhu in WW (never picked it myself, a few times other people picked it and it comes up random sometimes too), and I can count on one hand how many times during those races someone's used the glitch. It's not cool that you're using it, and I definitely think you're a jerk for doing it with other NLers in the same race. I know you've been busted by one of us multiple times, and if you keep it up, none of us are going to want to race with you.

And it sucks because Maka Wuhu is an amazing track. I hope like hell Nintendo manages to come up with a patch or something soon, because I'd love to honestly be able to race it in WW without having to worry if someone's gonna glitch or not.

actually, your character does turn its head to look behind him or herself if you hold down B to back up, so if you want to get technical, the answer was correct. for a practical answer, though, there is no way — just keep an eye on the lower screen. :3

it does support WPA2. it apparently does not fully support extra security methods appended to networks using WPA2. for the third and final time, I'm not saying it's not an issue or that Nintendo shouldn't look into it, i'm saying that the problem is not on Nintendo's side at the moment — they haven't lied (as StarDust suggested by c/p-ing manual text and bolding the relevant parts) when they printed in their manuals that the 3DS works with WPA2, because it does. it's the extra stuff the universities/big corporations are apparently using that is not (yet) supported.

More like "Hey lets give Platinum Games a try with our AAA franchise! They can make it into a hardcore hack 'n slash game and have as little Metal Gear resemblance as possible." Mario works for other genres because he's Mario. Metal Gear is no Mario.

That's like taking Zelda and making it into a hack 'n slash. Ditch the puzzles, the exploration, the variety, and lets make a linear, repetitive, button mashing adventure! :D

Before I forget, Metal Gear was once a card based game like YuGiOh. It was called Metal Gear Acid. Remember how well that did?

last i checked it wasn't 'your' Metal Gear to do (or not do) anything with. If you feel it was perfectly wrapped up and ended already, don't buy it. problem solved? :3

I played and beat Mario Kart 7 and tried to get into it, but I realized how horribly flawed this whole game is: you are bombarded with car-stopping items, and Wi-fi is the biggest load of crap: players literally WARP to the end of the track. The more I play it, the more I hate it.

it's one track with the warping glitch (and it wouldn't surprise me if Nintendo were able to fix it somehow). you can easily avoid it by playing in trusted communities, with friends, or by making sure to not pick Maka Wuhu while playing Worldwide (as opposed to randomizing). if it still comes up, you can either play it through (it's a great track) or force a d/c by going the wrong way; whichever floats your boat. Also, idk what MK games you've been playing, but Mario Kart has always been about bombarding other players with car-stopping items. learning to avoid them takes practice. if you prefer Pokemon to Mario Kart, that's fine, but don't blame the game for your own hangups.

the good news for you is that MK7 will probably trade in for a fat chunk of store credit if you want to go that route, or you can probably eBay it for full retail price if you prefer. Pokemon games, not so much :3
