Costs for the starting, complete virtual reality package that includes the headset, audio, 2 motion controllers, and the platform:

(Complete here means full headset tracking, motion controllers for hand tracking, and some sort of headphone solution for audio)

|Oculus Rift | HTC Vive | Playstation VR
Platform | $850 PC | $850 PC | $350 PS4
Headset | $600 | $800 | $400
Controllers | $??? | $0 | $60 ($30x2)
Tracking | $0 | $0 | $45
Audio | $0 | $0 | $0
Total | $1450+++ | $1650+ | $875+

* For HTC Vive and PSVR earbud alternatives, headphones have a lot of price variation. Depending on the brands you get, generally the more you pay for your audio, the better your virtual reality audio experience will be. My virtual reality headphone-type (open, closed, in-ear, etc.) breakdown can be found here. I also highly recommend looking at Head-Fi's price recommendation list for good ideas on headphones to consider purchasing.


Quick, cheap PC with minimum Rift/Vive specifications that includes everything as if you're starting from absolutely nothing.

CPU | Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor | $189.99
Motherboard | Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard | $56.99
Memory | Crucial 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory | $28.99
Storage | Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive | $49.89
Video Card | XFX Radeon R9 290 4GB Double Dissipation Video Card | $282.14
Case | Thermaltake Versa H21 ATX Mid Tower Case | $35.12
Power Supply | EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply | $49.99
Operating System | Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit) | $89.92

Keyboard | Fellowes 9892901 Wired Standard Keyboard | $5.37
Mouse | V7 M30P20-7N Wired Optical Mouse | $4.71
| Total | $863.10


You can cut costs further by removing keyboard, mouse, monitor, and perhaps finding a way to get a discount on the operating system. You can also change the case, or the storage for something cheaper. You may be able to lower the power supply, but I don't recommend it. If you remove the OS, monitor, keyboard, and mouse, you can cut about $160 off.

There are a few free VR games on the PSN store I believe.!/en-ca/free-on-ps-vr/cid=STORE-MSF77008-PSVRFREEG

You need PS Move controllers to go with the PS VR. Don't think they come with them. Here's an example:

You can get Little Big Planet online from the PSN store, and in pretty much any gaming store. It's kinda old, so im sure you can find used copies at say a EBGames easily.

Your new PS4 may have also come with a PS+ trial in the box. Start with that to see if you'd like to pick up a year membership. PS+ gives you 6 free games each month (2 PS4, 2 PS3, 2 Vita games), but you need to keep your PS+ membership to play them. If you stop the membership, you do not loose the games, you just cant play them until you re-subscribe. You also get extra sale prices on games.

u/Non_Causa_Pro_Causa · 66 pointsr/Games

I love Metal Gear... and I already have two collections:

Metal Gear: The Essential Collection released in 2008 (this one was criticized by some for not including the Gamecube remake, but rather including a PS1 disk)

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection released 2011 (again avoids any remake of MGS1 or GCN port, also leaves out Portable Ops: is basically MSG2, 3, and Peace Walker)

Is this a new thing? Release a random collection of MG games every 3 years? If there's an HD remake of the original Metal Gear (a la, the project they shut down) and MG2.. along with a port/remake of the GCN version - that would be worthwhile I guess.

If it's HD-collection redux with slightly "more HD" versions of the previous games....? I can't see them having done proper remakes in this time frame. Previous HD collection + Ground Zeroes? Same issue.

u/brosenfeld · 47 pointsr/gaming

Read the words above the price.


Google tells me that it means "Playstation Move Navigation Controller"

Amazon has it for $22.88

u/Ryan3395 · 45 pointsr/gaming

There's the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection. Includes MG, MG2, MGS1, MGS1:VR, MGS2, MGS3, MGS:PW, and MGS4.
> Edit: $75 on Amazon

u/OZONE_TempuS · 41 pointsr/patientgamers

Metal Gear Solid has six mainline canon installments (technically eight but I'm disregarding the NES games since I don't think they're worth playing and they're both covered in Metal Gear Solid) that spans fifty years and covers the arcs of many characters.

Most the games have some sort of deep narrative that run throughout the entire game but the stories for the most part are very good, albeit a bit convoluted on your first play through. The games sort of flop between very serious story telling and self parody, meaning they never taken themselves too seriously and they're full of little quirks and complete fiction.

The gameplay is fantastic too, the only one I'd say that has aged noticeably is the first one but the second Solid game made massive improvements to gameplay that stayed with the series and was added onto.

It's one of my favorite franchises and Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater are two of my all time favorite games, definitely worth a shot if you haven't already played them. If you have a PS3 then you can get the Legacy Collection which contains all the canon entries except for Phantom Pain but it's on PS3 as well.

u/F00LY · 29 pointsr/Overwatch

Just use a controller in the left hand and a mouse in the right.

Edit :

This is what I use in my left hand, and a Logitech G602 in my right.

Fine movement controller; Precision aiming.

u/amdrag20 · 27 pointsr/GameDeals

So Target has done this promotion before where you pre-buy a game and get $20 off a certain title, and, while some say is dishonest, you can probably get some of these titles for cheaper than the $30-40 that they advertise for. While I'm not here to tell you what's right or not, I am here to post game deals, and, well, this is part of it.

Without knowing what the "& more" titles are, I'll start with the ones that Target has listed in the ad. In order to get them cheaper, you ask for one of the games that's listed and tell them that you want to price match to a competitor's price. Target policy is that they have to escort you to the customer service desk to do the promotion where they have to look the price up on one of their iPads. Bring the pre-order card with you as they can check you out at the CS desk. I advise that you also have a few other items with you as this is where it gets kind of grey. Some team members will do the price match and promotion no problem, others won't claiming that you can't combine promotions (which is true according to Target's employee handbook). The issue in question, however, is if price matching is considered a promotion. It does not clearly define price matching as a promotions, so, really, it's up to the regional area if they will do it or not. I've found that having other items doesn't really raise any red flags when I did this promotion back about a year ago (you can then return said items at a later date for a full refund of those items making your final cost the sale sale price). Up to you. Anyway, here are the games that are in the promotion and their "better" prices at other stores (Current as of this posting):

  • GAME, console [Store with link] - The price at the store - promotion = total price at Target

  • CoD: Ghosts, PS3 [ Walmart ] $23.53 - $20 = $3.53

  • CoD: Ghosts, PS4 [ Walmart ] $37.79 - $20 = $17.79

  • CoD: Ghosts, Xbox 360 [ Walmart / Amazon ] $22.28 - $20 = $2.28

  • CoD: Ghosts, Xbox One [ Amazon ] $21.69 - $20 = $1.69

  • GTAV, PS3 [ Amazon ] $35.13 - $20 = $15.13

  • GTAV, Xbox 360 [ Amazon ] $34.91 - $20 = $14.91

  • Watch Dogs, PS3 [ Walmart ] $39.71 - $20 = $19.71

  • Watch Dogs, PS4 [ Walmart / Amazon ] $37.70 - $20 = $17.70

  • Watch Dogs, Xbox 360 [ Walmart ] $38.96 - $20 = $18.96

  • Watch Dogs, Xbox One [ Walmart / Amazon ] $37.22 - $20 = $17.22

  • Titanfall, Xbox 360 [ Walmart / Amazon ] $36.92 - $20 = $16.92

  • Titanfall, Xbox One [ Walmart ] $34.87 - $20 = $14.87

    It should be noted, that if you try to price match against Amazon, they will do the price of the product that is both SHIPPED and SOLD by Amazon. The "Fulfilled by Amazon" won't count! The prices listed above for Amazon are those prices current as of this comment. Some games are the same price at Walmart and Amazon, both links have been provided just in case one changes

    I'll update it if I/you guys find out any other games.
u/social_gamer · 27 pointsr/GameDeals

I was about to purchase this as "The Definitive Experience" sounded more like the PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection with Ground Zeroes + MGS:V and then was let down with it only being 2 games an their dlc.

u/[deleted] · 25 pointsr/truegaming

The Legacy Collection comes out next month (July 9th). I'd wait and get that if I was you.

It includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition.

And you should play all of them in order. Maybe skip the first 2 if you're not big on retro games.

Edit: Just noticed it doesn't come with the first MGS. You can pick that up on PSN like you planned and play it while you're waiting for the Legacy Collection to come out.

Edit 2: Actually, it comes with a voucher for MGS1. So it's up to you if you want to wait or not.

u/HandHeldPlague · 22 pointsr/PSVR

Sony just needs to update this controller by giving it motion tracking.

Ooh, just found this. Looks very easy to make it work.

u/OscarExplosion · 17 pointsr/patientgamers

Get the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection

it has every major Metal Gear Solid (1-4) game you would need to play besides Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Otherwise if you can't find the Legacy Collection get the HD Collection. Keep in mind though if you do get the HD collection instead you will have to seperatly get the original Metal Gear Solid (It's on PSN for PS3) and Metal Gear Solid 4.

Play them in order:

  • Metal Gear Solid

  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
u/Blue2501 · 17 pointsr/PS3

Demon's Souls is pretty cool if you're into the Dark Souls thing. I wanna recommend Vanquish, but I've heard that the 360 release is better. I'd highly recommend you get a remote. With the remote, a PS3 makes a damn fine Blu-Ray player with all the usual streaming services too. Also, the PS3 supports HDMI-CEC so if your TV also supports it, you can turn the TV on with the PS3, turn the PS3 off with the TV, use some of your TV's remote functions on the PS3, etc.

u/Odusei · 17 pointsr/gaming

Problem solved.

u/C4m3r0n18 · 13 pointsr/GameDeals

Its goes down to 19.99 all the time on Amazon, same with GTA IV Complete Edition :

u/sec713 · 13 pointsr/xbox360

Nope. 1 and 4 are not included on the 360 HD MGS Collection. You can only get those on Playstation. If you want the full comprehensive collection, and you own a PS3, this is the one you want.

u/jupiterkansas · 13 pointsr/PS3

Yes, but you'll also want to get the media remote to have better control over playback.

u/themcs · 13 pointsr/gaming

This would be better, and there are drivers for it.

u/bojanged · 12 pointsr/darksouls

Here's a pretty cheap copy on Amazon

u/lordskelzor · 12 pointsr/gaming

If you haven't played the games already pick up the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection when it becomes available

Some of the best games ever made

u/trappedmouse · 11 pointsr/pics

Actually, the PS3 has a bluray remote that uses bluetooth. It uses 2AAs and in my experience lasts for months.

u/GossamerSolid · 11 pointsr/Rockband

$300 USD for a used ION kit? I'd just get an Alesis Nitro Kit instead.

You'll want the MPA if you do go that route as well as a small MIDI to MIDI cable.

u/fireofaerys · 11 pointsr/gaming

Oh boy. There's a large list of games I believe a worth completing or otherwise sinking hours in to.


Borderlands: GOTY - I enjoyed this more than 2, but I also feel like it's more grindy than BL2

Borderlands 2

Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm - Gather a few friends and RO2: Rising Storm is a blast. It tries hard to pretend it's realistic, but don't take it too seriously. It's a WW2 shooter, but damn it if it isn't satisfying.

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series - I linked CoP as it's the newest game, but also the best in my opinion. It's an open world, apocalyptic shooter with RPG elements. This game needs the Misery mod to go along with it. It's free and adds a legendary amount of content and replayability. In particular, fans of roguelikes and games like Dark Souls would probably like this game.

Spec Ops: The Line - No game in 2012 touched this game's story. I won't spoil much, but the action and gunplay is enough to keep you involved with the story line. If you're a fan of plots, you need to play this.

Saint's Row 2 - Arguably the best SR game, the amount of pure content and hilarious combat isn't to be missed.

Red Faction: Guerilla - This is $1.99 right now on Steam, so there's no excuse to not play this. Open world, everything is destructible and fun to blow up. I've put 120 hours in to this. There are a couple mods out there that make it even more fun, but this is the best Red Faction game to date.

Just Cause 2 - While the singleplayer is moddable and not to be missed, the recent JC2 Multiplayer mod is absolute madness. It's Red Faction: Guerilla on a hefty amount of crack.

Hitman - While Absolution is regarded as the low point by some, it's still a fun game. Killing people has never been more fun. Definitely worth a look.

Far Cry 3 - This game is nuts. Do not skip this.

PAYDAY 2 - The first game was awesome, the second one is just generous. While I often argue they were lazy with the first one, the second one is absolutely FILLED with things to spend your (ingame) money on. It's a very large game with a generous helping of content that is even further expanded upon if you play with friends.

Sleeping Dogs - For some reason, this game demands your attention. There is not a crazy, Skyrim-level amount of stuff to do, but for some odd reason it grabs and keeps your attention for hours on end. Definitely a fun open world game, the story isn't bad either.


LEGO Lord of the Rings - LEGO games are great, but I found LotR to be particularly satisfying. Easy to drop in and play with friends, as well.

The Guild 2 - If you've ever wanted to own your own bakery, start a family, run an Assassin organization,
or become mayor of a city then this game is for you. Multiplayer adds an extra level of fun.

Crusader Kings 2 While the DLC is a bit pricey, there is a lot to choose from. If you enjoy history, or alternative history, you will definitely enjoy this. Establish your own kingdom or conquer a current one, with a large focus on continuing your family line.

Fallout - I found Fallout 3 to be more enjoyable than New Vegas, but there isn't a bad Fallout game and you can't go wrong.

Deus Ex: HR - While it wasn't everyone's cup of tea, the visuals and RPG elements make this game a winner in my book.

XCOM: EU/EW - XCOM: EW is one of the better strategy games to come out as of late, and it's expansion -- Enemy Within -- only makes it better.

KOTOR 2 - If you can tolerate older games, you shouldn't miss out on KOTOR 2. While KOTOR 1 is awesome, 2 just blew me away when it first came out. Even if you don't like Star Wars or know anything about it, the feeling of becoming a Jedi is so awesome. And there is hours and hours and HOURS of content, the mods alone have the potential to add upwards to 100 hours of replayability.

The Elder Scrolls - Even if you've played Skyrim or Oblivion, try out some you've never played or perhaps revisit older games like Morrowind. If you have never touched an ES game, now's the time.

Anno 2070 - I'm not so sure this is worth $30, but if you wait for a sale you have a pretty sweet strategy game. It's different, but in a good way. I can only recommend you try it to see if you like it.


Assassin's Creed - You would find quickly that AC is one of the most time-consuming, visually-stunning, heart-racing franchises of it's time. While it had it's low points, it could very well be my favorite franchise of all time. If you aren't interested in all of the games, AC4: Black Flag is a fresh start. You don't need prior knowledge of the other games to play it. But not playing the entire series would be unfortunate.

Binary Domain - This is a very underrated game with a very awesome story. Worth a look. It's on sale right now!

Game Dev Tycoon - Not an entirely original idea, but perhaps the most well executed. With a growing list of mods and a new multiplayer mod that adds a lot to the experience, it can easily take up hours of your life.

Hotline Miami - This game is like... I don't know. It's awesome. It's bloody murder wrapped in to an LSD-tripping pig mask. Just play it, you won't be disappointed.

The Wolf Among Us - If you enjoy story-packed games with a wild amount of replayability, you can't go wrong with Telltale. The Wolf Among Us is their most recent new endeavor and even if you haven't read the comics, it's an amazing, heartfelt story. 10/10 would wolf again.

POSTAL 2 - If there was ever a game to channel your inner psychopath, it's this.

Brutal Legend - I went in to this game not knowing what to expect, having no prior knowledge of it. It has a surprising amount of content and more to unlock. Awesome soundtrack and great voice acting and a pretty large open world make this a great experience.

Metal Gear Solid - This is up there with AC. I absolutely love Metal Gear Solid. You can pick up MGS4 for cheap, also.

Sims 3 - This game can be very stupid fun, or very serious fun. It depends on how you want to play it. Which is fun to me.

EDIT: Fixed some stuff, added some games

u/cocobandicoot · 10 pointsr/PS3

A bit of a novel, but I hope you find this helpful, OP.

First, to comment on what happened on your call with Microsoft: maybe it's possible you just got one of the really bad reps? But then again, they got a supervisor involved and they still wouldn't just fix the situation for you? Especially seeing as you hadn't even used your subscription... that is pretty ridiculous. Well, I'm confident that you'll find the PlayStation experience an enjoyable one.


Honestly, this is probably the best time to try out a PS3. We're closing out on this generation of consoles and some of the best games of the last few years have been PlayStation exclusives. Especially if you've been using an Xbox 360 this whole time, you're about ready to meet a whole new world of incredible titles.

Quick edit: Just wanted to clarify... I'm including links to Amazon just as an easy way for you to learn more about individual titles. But just as /u/undeadwolfy mentioned:

>You can buy most of these pre-owned at a decent price. Some are digital so they're not much cheaper but still great.

So first and foremost, I highly recommend anything by Naughty Dog -- they are arguably the best developer in the entire industry right now. They released four titles on the PS3: Uncharted 1, 2 & 3 (each game is a must-play), and the absolute masterpiece that is The Last of Us. You've probably heard plenty of praise for The Last of Us (and it is well deserved), but I would recommend saving the best for last. It's such an awesome game that, after completing it, nothing else I played interested me anymore. It took like a month to get back into the gaming groove, so I'd save that 'til after you beat the Uncharted trilogy. It's that good.

Aside from that, there are some other great titles I'd highly recommend. I don't know what kind of games you're into, so I'll just list all those that I've liked, personally:

  • Metal Gear Solid saga (MGS 1-3 were released on PS1 & PS2, but they've since been rereleased in HD for PS3, alongside MGS 4).

  • Heavy Rain (A very story driven game, where the choices you make can drastically affect the storyline. Plus... boobs.)

  • Beyond Two Souls (Brand new, just came out. Similar to Heavy Rain in its execution -- story driven.)

  • God of War trilogy (Awesome, mature platformer. The first two games were for PS2, but were released in HD alongside GOW3 on PS3. Also has boobs.)

  • Little Big Planet 1 or 2 (A great couch multiplayer side scroller. Lots of fun, more of a kids game... or a game to play with drunk adults.)

  • Infamous 1 & 2 (An interactive comic book. An "open world" platformer that lets you shoot lightning from your hands. Has a cool element where you can choose to be good or evil.)

    Not to mention plenty of other great exclusives (Rachet & Clank series, Resistance trilogy, Valkyria Chronicles and more) and the tons of PS1 and PS2 games on the PlayStation Store for cheap, playable on your PS3 if you want to go old school. (Not to mention the many PS2 games being rereleased for PS3 in HD glory... I'd recommend Shadow of the Colossus, which happens to be free for PlayStation Plus members this month... hint hint.) Of course, all the multiplatform games are also here (Battlefield, Bioshock, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, etc.).

  • Oh, did I mention the PS3's online multiplayer is free?
  • And if you've got Netflix, you don't need to pay Sony a cent to watch it (unlike a certain other console's "Gold" requirement).

    That said, however, if you really want to jump in the game, PlayStation Plus is worth every penny -- a ton of free games each month (and we're talking major titles, in addition to a handful of indies), plus a large variety of other system-enhancing features and discounts. And if you're looking at getting a PS4, getting PS+ is a no-brainer. For one, it is required for online multiplayer on the PS4 (no such requirement on the PS3, but hey, they've got to make their money somehow). But what's awesome is that one PS+ account will work across both the PS3 & PS4, and enable you to get free games for each console for as long as you are a subscriber, with free games on the PS4 appearing on day one.

    Welcome to the new age. Now cue up some Imagine Dragons and get ready for a freaking awesome experience. We're glad to have you.

The same promotion applies to Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix as well:

u/erikb42 · 10 pointsr/Games

No, because there is more to it than story. Over the series Kojima has done a ton of 4th wall breaking and the games are quite self-aware. Honestly, you should pick up the Legacy Pack and give them all a quick run through. The games aren't terribly long, but do have a decent amount of replay ability.

u/villanx1 · 10 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I'm not going to recommend multiplatform games as I'm unsure of whether or not you have a 360/Wii/etc.

  1. Valkyria Chronicles - (Mostly) Turn-based strategy game, with RPG elements. Gets pretty hard (at least for me) decently long.

  2. Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection - Pretty much every canon Metal Gear game. Stealth-Action at it's finest with an insane story and cast of characters. Includes the HD remasters of MGS2 and 3.

  3. Yakuza 4 - RPG/Brawler set in a fictionalized Kabukichō (a well known Red light district in Tokyo). You can spend your time cracking skulls, doing random favors for people, playing mahjong, or chatting it up with a hostess.
u/NO_Its_My_Juice · 9 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Play then in release order:

Metal Gear

Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (It’s debatable whether you need to play MG 1 and 2, but if you don’t, you need to watch some gameplay)

Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (some consider this non-canon as it wasn’t directed by HK but it doesn’t affect the overall story if you consider it canon)

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (same situation as Portable Ops, it’s amazing though so play it)

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The best way to play the entire series is to pick up a PlayStation 3, as you can play every
main series game on that beautiful console.

Metal Gear 1-2, MGS 1-4 and MGS: Peace Walker are in the Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection:

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance:

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes:

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain:

Portable Ops is only on PSP and hasn’t been ported to consoles which kind of tells you how Konami and HK see that game...

Aside from the mainline canon games there’s:

Metal Gear (NES)

Snake’s Revenge (NES)

Metal Gear: Ghost Babel (GameBoy Color)

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GameCube) [This is actually canon, it’s just a remake of MGS1]

Metal Gear Ac!d (PSP)

Metal Gear Ac!d 2 (PSP)

Metal Gear Survive (PS4/Xbox One)

Play the games in the order I stated. Don’t read anything about them. Don’t read reviews. Don’t look at the wiki to try to make sense of confusing things like I did. Just experience the twists and revelations as they happen. Enjoy. ✌️

You could get MGS Collection and Uncharted 3 for about the price of BF3 Premium.

MGS is $30 new, $29 used:

so I say go with that!

u/nohpex · 9 pointsr/patientgamers

I was going to say Final Fantasy 10 or 12, but it's hilarious how much MGS takes the cake.

Hey, OP. Get the Legacy Collection for
so you can play most of the series for cheap!

u/dangersandwich · 8 pointsr/Games

You can either play them chronologically in the order in which the games were released (I recommend this), or play them chronologically in the order in which the story occurs. Either is fine but definitely do not skip the original Metal Gear Solid.

My recommendation is to buy either:

  • Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection for PS2, which contains MGS1, MGS2, and MGS3, then buy MGS4 for the PS3, or

  • The original PS1 Metal Gear Solid + Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection for PS3 which contains MGS2, MGS3, and MGS:PW, then buy MGS4 for the PS3.

    I don't know about you, but I find it difficult to start from newer games going into older games because you get "spoiled" by the updated combat mechanics of the newer games, which could make playing the older games more tedious. If you play the older ones first, you'll appreciate the better combat mechanics of the newer games. Having said that, I think that Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for Gamecube isn't as clunky as the original since it's a remake. TBQH with you, though, it's probably not as bad as you might think.

I've said to this every newbie and I will say it to you as well: just play the games. Reading wikis or other peoples' plot summaries just doesn't work with Metal Gear games -- it really doesn't. You just have to experience it by yourself.

If you want the easy but not as effective way to learn what's going on - sure - you can watch the Digital Graphic Novels or cutscenes from YouTube, but I'd personally just lock you in a bunker with the Legacy Collection and let you out once you've finished the whole series.

I don't know if i understood correctly but if you don't know wich games are for each console

On the PS1 you can only play MSG1

On the PS2 you can play MGS2 and 3, and if you have the "Subsistence" version of 3 it also includes the original Metal Gear 1 and 2.

Or you can sell everything and get a PS3 with the Legacy collection wich includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition. It also includes Metal Gear Solid 1 and VR Missions voucher codes.

Amazon has similar deals (a little higher, unfortunately, but I bet you'd save money on the gas.)

u/grumbel · 7 pointsr/oculus

A PS Move has neither sticks nor Dpad. The Nav Controller has a stick and a Dpad, but it lacks positional tracking, so it's pretty useless for VR.

u/Synteka · 6 pointsr/PSVR

They did have a move controller with a thumbstick for PS3 but it didn't have tracking.

it would be nice for them to integrate the navigation controller into the move with a better battery life for a later product.

u/jimbonics · 6 pointsr/Rockband

Let's hope you're on PS4. XB1 uses are left in the wind atm.

If so, pick up a MIDI Pro Adapter NOW.

The Alesis Nitro kit is a very nice entry-level ekit for 300. Works like a champ on both consoles.

Only other thing you'd need is a MIDI cable.

This enhances your rock band experience 1000%

u/CheesecakeMilitia · 6 pointsr/Rockband

Any ekit with a midi-out port on the brain will work with the Midi Pro Adapter. The hitch is that many of the more inexpensive ekits have "midi-via-usb" ports that require a program running on a computer to convert the ekit's output to an input the Midi Pro Adapter can accept. If your midi-out port looks like this, you're good.

Once you have an ekit plugged into the MPA, it's as simple as setting the corresponding midi notes for a Rock Band config.

Also, if you're on Xbox One, you need the ridiculously expensive out-of-print legacy wired controller adapter to play with RB4. PS4 doesn't have this issue and can use the PS3 MPA just fine.

u/BaddDadd2010 · 6 pointsr/Rockband

> will it recognise the difference between toms snare and kick?


Your best bet is to get the Roll Limitless Adapter, an adapter made by a Rock Bad player who posts here. That's a little cheaper than the Official MIDI Pro Adapter, works better, and works whether your E-kit has standard MIDI or USB MIDI.

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection


-Metal Gear (1995)
-Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (1999)
-Metal Gear Solid (2005)
-Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Substance Edition / HD) (2007 - 2009)
-Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Subsistence Edition / HD) (1964)
-Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3 Exclusive) (2014)
-Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (1974)

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes / The Phantom Pain are sold separately but aren't PS3 exclusive.

The games here range from 1987 to 2010, sorted by release order. Guns of the Patriots is the finale to the franchise even though Revengeance takes place in 2018 but that title isn't canon.

It took me roughly ~2 weeks to get through all of them. On average, a Metal Gear Solid game takes ~8-12 hours to beat on your first ever run. The first 2 are a bit shorter.


The franchise is a must play. These games started, revolutionized, and essentially built the stealth franchise, with Ground Zeroes being the closest thing we have to a stealth simulator. Also Kojima wrote one of the greatest stories in gaming history.

u/frickendevil · 6 pointsr/StreetFighter

I have about 300 hours in this one:

I've heard about plenty of issues with the Hori FC4, but not so much the Hori FC for PS4. Works great for both PC and PS4 (if you play PC but want to go to tourneys on PS4). I play Zangief and the Dpad has been churned hard but still works fine (it was stiff to start with). I pulled it apart to clean once and no issues since.

9.5/10 would recommend.

Ratchet and Clank. The entire series. I love these games, they're completely awesome. Definitely check them out, you won't regret it.

No, I measure it in buying power. The reason to buy silver is to protect that buying power. We say a silver quarter will buy you a gallon of gas now just as it did in 1964. However, it's possible to lose buying power with silver just as with assets. In the last 9 months or so, silver fell from >$30/oz to <$20/oz. CPI was small (<1.5%), so let's call it zero. You can buy only 2/3 of the goods now with your silver as you could have then. 9 months ago, you could use 2 oz of silver to buy a [brand new video game] (, but now it would take three ounces. This loss of buying power is a loss of wealth.

If you don't care much for Metal Gear, get the HD collection; if you want the full experience, pick up the Legacy one.

u/azrael6947 · 5 pointsr/gaming

Okay, I'll keep this brief.

You started out good. MGS 3 is the earliest game in the series story wise. On console Ground Zeroes is it's sequel, there is a few handheld titles in between MGS 3 and Ground Zeroes.

In short the story is and SPOILERS-SOMEWHAT in short, about two key groups who endevour to fulfil The Boss' final wish, to have a untied world. The Patriots seek to create this world through control, their enemies seek to create it through freedom.

The Patriots are an example of a shadow government, as they run the USA and control pretty much everything, add WMDs, nanomachines, AI and supersolders as plot points to the entire story, and it makes for one very enjoyable ride.

In their attempts to create the perfect world they embark on a complex cloning program to create the perfect soldier to fullfiil this goal. This is where Solid Snake comes from. Very few characters work directly for The Patriots, many are unknowing agents and the rest are usually unwilling, and are held hostage by some means.

The Metal Gear are a series of bipedial tanks, caipable of launching WMDs from any terrain or fullfilling some over goal such as recon or targeted strikes. In most games the Metal Gear serves as the final boss or close to being the final boss.

In buying Ground Zeroes now you wont miss a hell of a lot, Ocelot appears in it along with Snake. Most of the other characters are from the two handheld games in between MGS3 and MGS5:GZ, those two games are Peace Walker and Portable Ops. You can get every MGS game to date (aside from Portable Ops) in the Legacy Collection:

u/Musika13 · 5 pointsr/Games

Fortunately for you, they're releasing the MGS Legacy collection soon, which includes every major game in the series. You could probably pick it up and finish it by the time MGSV hits. Check it out.

Make a head tracker. Super easy to build and a fun little project.

  1. Build the circuit as shown in the second pic (with USB). The IR leds can be bought from ebay in packs of 5 or from mouser etc

  2. Use this guide for building the headpiece.

  3. Get a ps3eye and remove the ir filter. Video here. Make sure you get the good version of the camera. If you buy from Amazon (or any other place where you can see buyers' comments) people will usually say if it can be modded. You can also use it without removing the filter but it tracks much better if you remove it.

    Or buy a ready made trackir. The headpiece of the trackir is so shit though that some people actually build this to use with the track ir they bought.

I don't know if this is of interest to you, but I play on PC with Mouse + PS3 Move Navigation controller. There are a couple of ways to get the controller to work but the easiest is to simply buy the Mayflash PS3 to USB adapter.

The Move controller is one handed, so you hold it in your off hand that would normally be placed on the WASD keys. For me, it's mainly a comfort thing.

u/graesen · 5 pointsr/PSVR

The PS3 had a PS Move Navigation controller. I have one. I kept my Move controllers when I hears they were compatible with the PS4. I didn't know how I'd use them, but thought there was a reason. Then 1 day, PSVR was announced and released. The move controllers were compatible, but I've yet to see an example or compatibility for the Navigation controller with the PSVR... Just saying...

Splitfish Dual SFX Evolution Wireless Controller for just $23. I own one and it works pretty good, no dead zones but the button layouts feels awkward. Rapidfire was fun to use, only tried it on Mass Effect 3 though. It feels like a monster when you hold it btw. Here's the video review of it.

HKS Racing Controller for $36.09. This is strictly for racing games and I've never really tried it. HKS Racing Controller Review.

PS3 Eagle Eye Mouse and Keyboard Converter which is $49.88. I know you don't want to shell out too much money but if you want to play the PS3 with a keyboard + mouse, then here ya go. You can also check out the Tactical Assault Commander 3 but I wouldn't recommend it. Eagle Eye PS3 Review. Btw, if you do get the Eagle Eye, expect playing it like this. A better demonstration of Eagle Eye.

Play n Type Wireless Controller with Keypad for $38.03. I seriously don't like this controller, it looks terrible. Just get the official wireless keypad. It's like, what, $21 on Amazon? Here's the review of it, no such video demonstrating the actual typing though.

You can also check the third party controllers in Gamestop or Bestbuy like afterglow but I totally wouldn't recommend it. Like seriously. Shit's so bright even in daylight.

  • E-Kit with a MIDI-out

  • MIDI Cable

  • Plug one end of a MIDI cable into the MIDI-out of an e-kit and plug the other end into the MIDI Pro Adapter.

  • Plug the MIDI Pro Adapter into your PS4.

u/subverxion · 5 pointsr/Tekken

Buying a cheap stick is not always a bad idea. Usually what sucks about cheap sticks is the actual buttons and joystick parts - these are fairly easily replaceable with high quality parts. You used to be able to buy buttons from but apparently they've gone out of business so you'd need to use something like Focus Attack.

So you can buy a cheap stick, order some Sanwa or Seimitsu buttons and joystick, and spend less for basically the same quality stick as the high end ones. It does take the effort of ordering and changing out the parts though (really not too hard) so the savings will have to justify the effort for you. It does let you customize your stick more though, and it will give you some experience if you want to mess with the stick in the future to deck it out or change out parts.

You can also dual mod them yourself or pay people to. Haven't looked into this so not sure if it would be cheaper to get a cheap stick + high quality parts + dual mod than just buying an already dual modded high end stick.

For example, my friend did all of this with this stick as a start. And yet he still hasn't changed the panel art...

u/Cynfidel · 5 pointsr/Skullgirls

I've been recommending (and probably always will) the MadCatz WWE Brawl Stick to anyone looking for a cheaper stick. As of time of this comment, its $45 on Amazon with free shipping if you use Prime. Its WWE branded, which isn't really that popular, I guess, so they're a little cheaper than the exact same (mechanically) Street Fighter IV stick.

The actual stick isn't perfect, and the buttons are a little iffy. Everything on it is standard, however, meaning you can drop the money a month or two down the road to upgrade the hardware to something a bit higher quality (Sanwa OBSF-30 buttons and Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK stick come to mind).

Edit: PS3 version is what I'm using. Works on PC with no third-party drivers or hacks. PC simply sees it as a generic USB controller.

Got mine about a month ago, really good. I used to run a Saturn pad through a Mayflash adapter and x360ce. Even though the purported lag through Mayflash is low, I IMMEDIATELY noticed a difference in input accuracy. It actually blew my mind because for the first month of SFV, I thought I just sucked in my input execution and had difficulty landing some combos. Turns out it was just adapter lag.

This would be my gift one choice. I love all things Kindgom Hearts, and I still have the first game, but my PS2 was lost when my house burned down so I have no way to play it anymore. I almost peed myself when I found out this game was coming out.

For the second gift, C'mon...gimme. This books sounds so interesting!!

u/ArmyDude956 · 4 pointsr/smashbros

There are actually PC ports of both MGS1 and MGS2, but they are pretty dang old.



However, here's how I recommend doing it.

Get The Twin Snakes for Gamecube. It's a remake of the first one with totally redone cutscenes, redone voice acting, and different music. The music is nowhere near the level of the first one, it just doesn't sound right. But other than the music, I think it's the best version.

Then get the HD collection, if you have a 360 or PS3. This includes HD remakes of MGS2, MGS3, and MGS Peace Walker. Peace Walker was a PSP exclusive before and it's 100x better on console.

I also recommend getting MGS3 on 3DS. It's the best version in my opinion. Use the Circle Pad Pro, though.

You can get MGS4 on PS3 or on PS4 with Sony's PSNow thing, but that's only a rental.

MGS5 Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are both coming out on PC.

Or you can just get the Legacy collection which has literally every Metal Gear game to 2012, and it includes the HD editions. It doesn't have The Twin Snakes though.

I believe OP only has the MGS HD collection so he only has MGS 2, 3 and Peace Walker. OP if you're reading this and have a PS3 i highly recommend the MGS legacy Collection.

It has all the games you could possibly need, including the MSX games but they're not required for a playthrough, but just as UsoInSpace said, best play it in release order: 1->2->3->4 and then peace walker since it's the latest one.

From my own perspective, I could not dream of using Photoshop without having the keyboard within easy reach. I live and die by keyboard shortcuts. As you've found out, using Photoshop with only the pen can feel very inefficient when drawing or editing.

Some Surface and tablet owners use game controllers as a secondary input device in Photoshop. Different tools are mapped to the controller buttons.

A popular controller is the Playstation Move Navigation Controller

So for example, you could set it up like this.

The controller is wireless so it should be pretty convenient to use. But personally, I think it's just better to keep the keyboard attached.

u/idkmybffjoe · 4 pointsr/PS3

It would likely be this one. I don't own one myself, and it's no MadCatz TE, but they make decent products in general, and if you're down to do an art mod, it could easily be a solid casual stick. It all depends on how seriously you want to take it-- no sense dropping $150+ on a stick if you're just going to play online at home for six months and then drop the game forever. If you're looking into playing competitively at tournaments? I'd recommend just saving up for a bit longer and buying the best stick you can. Most tournament players use either Hori or (most commonly) the MadCatz TE, but it's your call. Some even use pad successfully (see: Fanatiq). Good luck!

The safest thing is a properly-sized resistor on the 5V rail. If you don't do that, the PSU may appear to run fine without it initially and then randomly shut down, reset, etc., potentially ruining prints. You need to keep drawing 1-2 amps at 5V to keep things happy. If you really want ideas for things to put on 5V that are actually useful:

  • 5V LEDs
  • Raspberry Pi
  • a powered USB hub
  • USB webcam
  • 5V fan(s) to cool stepper drivers/control board

Siden Wii controller fungerer greit - Her er kanskje noe inspirasjon:
[Bruke Wii controller som mus] (
System for å bruke kontrollere på tvers av konsoller/PC.
Enhåndskontroller beregnet på Playstation

Husk at et keyboard kun er en samling knapper, og en knapp er kun en metode for å midlertidig lage en krets mellom to punkter.
Dersom han kan bevege andre armen/fingre/tær/fot whatever på en kontrollert måte, er det mulig å lage til trykknapper som igjen er koblet til kontaktpunktene for knapper på et tastatur/numpad man ofrer.

Er ikke noe problem å ha flere tastatur og/eller mus på samme PC utenom at det kan bli kaotisk om man bruker dem samtidig.

Man kan kjøpe ferdige knapper, (finnes også store knapper å få kjøpt) eller lage selv med f.eks en fjæret plate og to små metallplater.

Har man laget til knapper som kan brukes, kan man så sette dem opp med macroer etc.

u/rougegoat · 3 pointsr/Games

> Why the hell are they not using the "nunchuck" in the left hand to control movement? I think the game would be a lot less sluggish with proper analog movement.

The nunchuck(I'm assuming you mean the Navigation Controller) isn't trackable, so Sony likely telling developers to not rely on it.

As for sluggish controls...I feel like that's kind of the point. Golems aren't known for being super smooth and swift.

u/mneptok · 3 pointsr/PS3

Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 are platform exclusive shooters with 3D support. I have played both, and both are worth their current non-release day price.

I have not played either of these games with the Playstation Move/Eye, Playstation Nav controller and/or the Playstation Sharpshooter. But you can. For a most un-desktop computer experience.

u/shoehaunted · 3 pointsr/Steam

Maybe getting a Playstation Move Navigation Controller or just using half of a regular gamepad would open up a few different games you can play. Use Steams controller binding software to bind eveything you need to the right side. Could work for racing games or platformers.

Microsoft is also coming out with their own Adaptive Controller which should allow lots of customization to use a foot pedal and other things.

Edit: Another option would be a flight stick

u/bushrod · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I've been saying that since the Move controller came out for PS3, when you needed a special "Navigation controller" for the thumbstick. Why not just put a thumbstick on all Move controllers? Mind-bogglingly stupid decision.

u/jbigboote · 3 pointsr/PS3

right now you can get a 160GB PS3 on Amazon for $250 with a $50 credit. If you count the $50 credit as a cash equivalent, you are effectively paying $200. there are undoubtedly better deals on Black Friday (Walmart for sure), but this is available now, and does not involve fighting crowds (or paying sales tax, in most states).

You'd just need the PS3 Rock Band MIDI Pro Adapter. I'd also recommend the Nitro kit, btw. I use that one myself. If you wind up getting it and have any questions on using it with RB, let me know!

u/moneyman12q · 3 pointsr/Games

im pretty sure you could use this to plug in a real fender through midi

u/Easy_fan · 3 pointsr/Rockband
u/mystakin · 3 pointsr/Rockband

If your kit has midi out, you're playing on PS4, and you have this thing you should be all set as far as I know.

If you're on XBOX, you can still do midi out into an old Guitar Hero kit but you won't get access to Pro drums.

u/EvilTrovis · 3 pointsr/Rockband

MIDI output refers to the electronic drum kit's ability to output signals via a MIDI cable. It's a standard in the music industry and really has nothing to do with video game consoles, but you'll need it for this scenario.

The connection looks like this:

Ideally, any e-kit you choose would have that connection (technically there are workarounds, but if you're buying an e-kit anyway, just buy one that supports it). While most modern e-kits offer this form of output, some kits only offer it via a USB cable (which is not what you want).

Now, since video game consoles don't use MIDI connections for anything, that's where the RB3 MIDI Pro Adapter comes into play. Since you're on PS4, you'd need the adapter for PS3, which is here:

In addition to that adapter, you'd need a standard MIDI to MIDI cable, which can usually be purchased for a few bucks. The end result would be your e-kit -> MIDI cable -> RB3 MIDI Pro Adapter -> connected to the PS4.

Going back to you mentioning drum brains, that refers to the module that essentially ties an e-kit together. It's the computer (if you will) that processes all of the signals and sounds, and all of the pads and cymbals of your e-kit connect to it. Every e-kit will have a brain; generally, the more you pay for an e-kit, the nicer the module is and the more features it offers.

With the exception of the ION Drum Rocker (which was a specialized, stripped-down e-kit for use with Rock Band), no e-kits will natively support Rock Band, which is why you need the RB3 MIDI Pro Adapter.

If you want to be able to simulate playing with the hi-hat open and closed, be sure to buy an e-kit that will allow you to modify the MIDI triggers for such a scenario. You'd need one that allows you to map the MIDI trigger for the hi-hat when the pedal is up to match whatever you're using as the blue cymbal, and at the same time it needs to allow you to have a different MIDI trigger when the pedal is down to match the yellow cymbal. Furthermore, you'd need to have the pedal itself not act as a bass pedal, or it would break your combo every time.

u/Brodusa · 3 pointsr/Fighters

You can start on this one

It's not the best thing out there but it's not bad either, buddy of mine got this stick changed the artwork on it and replaced the stick with a balltop quicklink and the buttons with Crown buttons. (he wanted to try them out)

It will get the job done for getting used to using a fight stick and will last long enough for you to save up money for something better.

u/AfroMH · 3 pointsr/Games

A few good places to look for information:

  1. SRK is a good place to go to see all the latest news; there are forums there and one is called the Newbie Saikyo Dojo made specifically for new players to learn stuff about the genre. SRK also has a lot of resources on finding people near you to play games with. Online play is a good way to practice, but there's nothing like playing against someone in person when it comes to getting better.

  2. As another person suggested, the David Sirlin tutorials for Super Turbo focus on fundamentals that you can apply in most any fighting game.

  3. Eventhubs also has a lot of good information as well.

  4. If you're looking to buy a stick, but don't know if you want to make a heavy initial investment, look for the WWE All-Stars Brawl Stick. It's cheaper than buying a TE, and easily moddable if you want to upgrade the parts in it. Once you're ready for a bigger investment (especially if you decide to get into tournaments), the MadCatz TEs are really good, but I would suggest (especially if you don't have a modder in your area) getting a Qanba or an Eightarc stick, because they work on both 360 and PS3 and are quality products.

    As for a game, Super Street Fighter IV AE would probably be your best bet. Find a character (I usually recommend Ryu to new players because you can learn all the basics like footsies, zoning, anti-airing, spacing, and so on and so forth) and play around a little bit. If you decide to step into the online arena, you're going to lose. A lot. Stick with it.

    If you want to try out UMvC3, go for it. It is easy to learn, yet hard to master, and not as hard as it looks. To beginners, the game looks and seems extremely fast, but the game slows down as you get used to it.
u/redthunder15 · 3 pointsr/Skullgirls

I'd get this: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection by Konami

u/bananaslughippie · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

Or if they have a 360/PS3, they could get the HD Collection.

u/xxdofxx · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

Just to clear up any confusion (because when I went to buy these games 6 months ago I got it messed and up wasted $10.) The Legacy Collection includes The HD Collection, MGS IV, and a PSN code for MGS1 (note this ISN'T the Twin Snakes version, which is Gamecube exclusive and is much better in almost every way. So much so, that IMO you should just watch a long play on youtube instead of playing the original PS1 version.)

So if you DON'T have MGSIV and want to play/experience the whole series, absolutely get the more complete Legacy Collection. Only buy the stand alone HD Collection if you already have a copy of MGSIV and are going to watch Twin Snakes (MGS1)on youtube (which I recommend either way.)

u/KyuubiReddit · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

for Metal Gear Solid, you can start with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes on GameCube (will also play on a Wii), then get the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection on PS3 to play MGS 2, 3 and 4.

EDIT: Oh I just noticed you only have the PS3 and PS2. You'll have to get the PS1 version of MGS on the PSN.

u/Bopsybops · 3 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Lots of nanomachines and badass battle tanks. Philosophy and shit. Buy a PS3 and the Legacy Collection + Metal Gear Rising, and that's everything.

Edit: I forgot to mention Ground Zeroes. You'll need that, too.

u/gotta_ban_them_all · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

u/BlazyNights · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

I recommend release order and staying away from the botched NES release and it's 500% non-canon non-Kojima sequel.

The way I recommend playing Metal Gear (not solid) 1 & 2 is disc 2 of MGS3 Subsistence, it has both of them on there and iirc, it's the first official English release of MG2. I was able to emulate the two of them fine on a PS2 emulator, even taking advantage of save states (MG1 has some pretty terrible one way elevators). I'm not 100% sure, but I think the HD versions of MGS 3 have this included.

You're going to need a PS3 and you might as well pick up the Legacy Collection (not the HD collection), it's got most of the games including MGS1 and MGS4 and it sells for about $25, it's an amazing value for some of the best games ever made. The canon PSP games that it leaves out aren't really worth it.

Peace Walker is one of my favorites, make sure to play the PS3 version over the PSP version, you'll get better controls and a much better framerate.

If you liked Metal Gear 1 & 2 and want more 2D action, Ghost Babel (released as "Metal Gear Solid" in the US) is a Game Boy Color game that is visually stunning in motion for the platform, it's non-canon

u/Timeworm · 3 pointsr/PS3

It's like $25 on Amazon US. If you're on some other country the price may be different.

This Fighting Commander is great too. It's symmetrical unlike the FC4 and doesn't have the rotating D-pad (which I read people saying it wears out). I've got it and its nice.

u/ant_blottuh · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

No this controller is pretty bad and horribly designed, I promise you will hate it. Get one of the Hori Fighting Commanders, either the one with the rotating dpad or the one without if you aren't interested in that.

I have the one without the rotating dpad and its made my inputs so clean, I can definitely vouch for it.

Ill link them both if you wanna check them out. You may be able to find them cheaper on other sites but I prefer to just use amazon.

I'd look for games like Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter, or Rachet and Clank.

There's a Sly Cooper Collection that has three games. There's also a Jak and Daxter Collection as well as a Rachet and Clank Collection. Each collection has three games, and they're running for about $15 each. These would keep them busy for a very long time. :)

To answer your question, yes, you need to pick it up at the Walmart you pre-ordered it at. Why don't you order it online at Amazon? You can get it the day it comes out if you choose 2 day shipping and get it delivered straight to your door.

u/snowbell55 · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

You could still save a bit of money if you can cancel the ps3. Get the super slim (500 gb) for $220, then get gta v which should be $30 or so. That'll save you $50 you can use for games.

If you go to Glyde and are not afraid to wait a week or 2 you can get games often for $8-$12 or less...

Congrats on getting a ps3 and welcome to the PS family. It's a great great system. Oh - one more thing: if you can get a Playstation Plus subscription. 2 (sometimes more) free games each month, for $50 a year, less if you can find a deal.

I've only played the demo, but Fuse was pretty fun.

A third-person shooter with up to 4 player co-op where each of the 4 characters has a signature technologically advanced weapon to use.

I have the game for PS3, just haven't started it up yet is all.

Others that come to mind, that I have in fact played, include:

Enslaved which goes on sale for really cheap pretty often and is a decent enough game. Post apocalyptic beat 'em up with great characters and a decent story. Stars Gollum himself, Andy Serkis.

Red Dead Redemption plus the Undead Nightmare DLC which is the worth the money at twice the price but goes on sale fairly often. Rockstar's Wild West epic with an amazing ending that hopefully hasn't been spoiled for you.

The Saboteur is a stylized World War II game where you take the role of an Irish revolutionary in Nazi occupied Paris. Probably worth a $10 price tag.

If I think of anymore I'll update the list.

2.5 has not been officially announced, but there have been screenshots that were clearly from KH2 in the KH1.5 promotion materials, and it would make sense to release 2.5 to help people get caught up before KH3 finally releases. It's presumed that 2.5 will include KH2:FM and BBS:FM and the videos from 358/2 Days, but probably not KH:3D since it's fairly new. None of that is officially confirmed, it's just speculation based on what we know about 1.5 and what would "make sense" before 3 comes out.

u/StNowhere · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

If you have a PS3, grab the Legacy Collection. It has MG1 & 2 (the old MSX games), MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, and Peace Walker. Also if you buy a new copy, it should come with a download code for MGS1.

From there, all you're missing is Ground Zeroes, and Phantom Pain.

u/tremens · 3 pointsr/PS3

Hey mate. I posted this over in another thread, but it's just up your alley. Also of note right now, is that Target has a 2 for $25 sale right now - Of that list I'd recommend Ico/Colossus HD, Twisted Metal, Little Big Planet, and GT5 - I'm not going to include inFAMOUS 2, solely because you can grab the Collection for around $20 if you look for it, but that's the only reason. Also, Target was doing a Buy 2 Get 1 on many titles online (and all titles in-store) but I'm not sure that's still going on.

>In the same boat. Here's the list I've compiled so far, targeting bang-for-buck and PS3/console exclusives mostly, since I already have an extensive PC collection. In no particular order:

Last of Us (this is a no brainer, buy it immediately.)

God of War Saga Collection, God of War Ascension

Uncharted Greatest Hits Dual Pack, Uncharted 3

>Everything listed here can be had for less than $30, most around $20, and many of them are 2-5 games per purchase and set you into a franchise.

>If you find Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection for around $50, BUY IT. Otherwise, probably best to skip it. Tough series to jump into around 5.

>And whatever you do, get PlayStation Plus immediately. If you buy a year it works out to a few dollars per month (newegg had a year for $40 recently on eBay) and you get 2-3 PS3 games every month, AND you get Vita, PS4, and PSP games. "BUY" THESE TOO! They are free and accessible as long as you have a PS+ account once you "tag" them to your account. If you every buy a PSP, Vita, or PS4 on the cheap you will have an instant and extensive back catalog of games ready to go.

>Oh, and Uncharted 3 is currently free on PS+ but expiring soon!

EDIT: Amazon has the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection for $55 ($60 shipped) currently. I thought I had a deal on it for $45, but the reseller cancelled it after I posted it on here saying that had an "inventory error" (they showed they had numerous copies in three of their brick and mortar stores and were out of stock at one, so I find that hard to believe they didn't have at least the copy I ordered - more like they got flooded with 30-40+ orders at once and realized they were selling it pretty far below the going rate.)

u/OneRFeris · 3 pointsr/thelastofus
u/oiskaio · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

I'd recommend the Legacy Collection if you can find it for fairly cheap. It keeps going in and out of print it seems.


u/Sketti_Snake · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Yes. There are a few other games like Portable Ops, and Metal Gear 1 and 2 (Not Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2, Metal Gear 1 and 2, the ones for the MSX2 console). But it's not 100% vital you play those and besides they aren't made for the PS3 or PS4. And you'll need a PS2 to play

Getting the Metal Gear Solid HD collection for PS3 gets you everything except MGS4.

u/jordanlund · 2 pointsr/vita

I think it depends on if you played the 2 remastered games or not and if you have a PS3 or 360 or not.

If you have a PS3 or 360 then get the HD collection for that instead, because it's $40 but includes all three games.

For whatever reason (space?) the Vita version only has 2 games instead of 3.

u/mxwlln · 2 pointsr/PS4

As stated before, your best bet if you don't have a PS3 is to check if the HD collection is available for PS Now, and if you're willing to pay the price and if your connection is good, you're set.

There are two collections available for the PS3, though.

  • HD Collection: Includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, MGS2 HD, MGS3 HD, MGS Peace Walker HD
  • Legacy Collection: Includes all the above + MGS4 + download code for MGS1 and MGS VR Missions if you buy it new + some artwork that I don't care for but a lot of people do so you might like it.

    For anyone else reading who had a similar question, my choice would be Legacy Collection since it's $43 on Amazon right now. I personally don't care for MGS4 or the Ashley Wood artbook that's included but for everything that you get, it's a good deal.

    EDIT: A word or two.

I've been partial to the Far Cry series and have put countless hours into it.

In terms of fun, creative gameplay in a colorful world that can suck you in, other have suggest Bioshock... I would add the Ratchet & Clank Collection.

I would also add: Just Cause 2 and 3.. it's an open sandbox world with tons of creative ways to dispatch enemies (you have rocket boosters to attach to anything and grappling hooks that allow you to link & manipulate yourself/people/vehicles/buildings/statues/objects/explosives/etc.)

You're in luck, in light of the new console generation most the greatest hits available for the PS3 are available for half their original price or less some even available in combo packs.

u/iwantedacoolname · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/matt_0295 · 2 pointsr/PS3

I'm assuming it's this one:

I tried to order one myself, but it won't ship to the UK.

u/spicycurry1 · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/wazzuper1 · 2 pointsr/PS3

I think the previous users that have asked about this product were met with these general responses:

  • They seem to have a high failure rate. You can check some of the comments on Amazon or Google it yourself.
  • Some people get headaches from using the two-player, one view mode in certain games. It depends on how sensitive you are. There is some slight ghosting effect (where you can still faintly see your friend's portion of the screen).
  • Cannot mount onto a wall as it is meant for a desk.
  • Speakers are so-so.

    If you do decide to get it, make sure to get the extended warranty. You're likely going to need it.
u/i_saw_nothing · 2 pointsr/ronandfez

You can hear them here:

Red Dead Redemption


Seriously though, in RDR, Ron was a blacksmith, if I recall. As he said yesterday, it sounds like Ron Bennington, if he was voicing a video game character.

I don't recall him being in GTA. I know one of the radio stations has a talk show, featuring Fez & Patrice. I need to go back and play that just to hear two people who used to be great on the radio, but for whatever reason, you can't hear them anymore.


u/Youthsonic · 2 pointsr/GameDeals

Base game tho; undead nightmare is the standout and it's 10 bucks.

Should be like 22 bucks if you pick up both, so you might as well snatch it from amazon for 21 bucks and get the rest of the dlc

u/pre-alpha · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

Except they do afaik?. There's clearly a buy new option.

u/detrick4 · 2 pointsr/gaming

Buy it right now. 360, PS3. Also, the Undead Nightmare expansion is also fantastic. It is one of my favorite DLCs of all time. It is up there with Old World Blues (F:NV) and The Ballad of Gay Tony (GTAIV)

u/bbernett · 2 pointsr/hardware

Here's an Amazon link for a PS2 to USB adapter. This doesn't answer your question (I'm not sure if soldering alone could produce the same effect), but it's an easy and cheap option.

u/Shadowreaper666 · 2 pointsr/CasualConversation

For the controller I would recommend getting one of these bad boys. For the slow laptop problem I really can't say anything. You might be able to do some testing with the emulator and see what you can run. If you really like playing all the old games it might be better to invest in a gaming computer so you can run all the amazing emulators out there.
Here is a list of the emulators they have and yes they even go as far as the last gen consoles and current gen nintendo console (x360, ps3 and wiiU). If you want any help with getting started just toss me a message or comment reply(either for emulators you might be able to run or building a pc I'm down for either.
Also on another note I got my install of Ubuntu done up all nice and pretty :D

u/Elranzer · 2 pointsr/retrogaming

Well, the setup is basically two pieces...

  • Sony DualShock 2 controller (I have plenty of my old ones from PS2, still mint condition, that I use. Probably hard to find these new, but possible with eBay and Amazon. If you have some of your own of these, you're halfway there.)

  • DualShock2-to-USB Adapter (Amazon Examples: [1], [2], [3].. these create a DirectInput gamepad on your PC, not Xinput (Xbox 360/One gamepad), so while great for emulators and PC games that have customizable controls, they won't work for newer PC/Steam games that assume you're using a 360 gamepad.

    The adapter will also work with the Sony PlayStation 1 original gamepad and DualShock 1.

    Also... if you have a SNES gamepad, here's an adapter for that. (But I find the extra L2/R2, analog sticks and their L3/R3 buttons are useful for other emulation buttons such as speed-up, save state, load state, etc).
u/Expand-O-Dongo · 2 pointsr/THPS
  1. or
  2. No, we don't know. Rumor has it they're working on THAW at the moment, but I can't confirm.
  3. Pick up an adapter. Here's one I found. Then download a mapping tool, like Xpadder and set it up to how you want it to be.
u/comrad5055 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Here is an amazon listing for a product that does that. You may to read the reviews and look at similar products to find the best one. I have no personal experience using these.

u/aquabluesharpie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Alrighty, here's my entry. Went with a maroon-ish color, hope that counts as red. :3

Edit: Forgot to put what I'd like if I win. If shipping isn't included, I would like this(cutting it kinda close price wise, I know).

u/Qu1nlan · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My items - $50 Xbox hard drive and a $40 Kingdom Hearts preorder, which it is possible to gift since it's a physical item!

My favorite person and the person I love most, without a doubt, is my girlfriend /u/MeghanAM. She is smart, talented, funny, loyal, dedicated, devoted, and every positive adjective in between. She adores me with such a sincere tenacity that I never even thought possible, and I adore her just as much. She is so amazing at talking through issues about me, issues about herself, issues about others and the world. She is supportive and loyal in every situation, even ones where she has no stake or doesn't agree for some reason. I don't have any secrets from her which is incredibly liberating and wonderful. She makes me feel worth something, a feeling I've never had before. I love you, honey. You're the best.

I tried to draw her, but I'm a terrible artist. Now the love of my life looks like an awkward transvestite potato :(


u/Harry3799 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If you have a ps3 id grab the legacy collection its pretty cheap. its the way to play every game (And if your new i might just recommend playing 3 and peace walker then wait for MGS V then play the rest. Because 3 and peace walker are the complete beginning of metal gear) If you have any timeline questions i can help. But id say the legacy collection is the best

u/infestedjoker · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I wish we would get this Collection instead since the 360 never got mgs4 and was the reason why i owned a ps3 last gen cause i am a huge MGS fan.

u/input_cords · 2 pointsr/Games

Perhaps, I'm simply pointing but that starting off in MGS5 would be like reading A Dance with Dragons without reading the first 4 Game of Thrones books.

If you own a PS3 you can get all the games (except AC!D and Portable Ops, both of which aren't really important) in a single package.

u/ShoemakerSteve · 2 pointsr/gaming
u/pikec21 · 2 pointsr/gaming

Probably should have been clearer.

"The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition
Also includes Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions via included voucher codes"

u/SaltTheSnail · 2 pointsr/PS3

I'm planning on getting into the MGS series but I'm just waiting for this, it will be cheaper. :)

u/believingunbeliever · 2 pointsr/Games

There's actually 2 games before Metal Gear Solid itself, titled Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2.

I assume that what you're saying is you can source for the other metal gear titles individually and haven't actually bought or played them yet.

You can still find the original PC game on amazon used here

However you're in luck that the legacy edition for PS3 has been announced and is coming in July which collects the original Metal Gear up to Peacewalker Here

There's more in the series that you can find under the metal gear wikipedia article (metal gear acid, rising and some versions that came out on handheld devices)

u/VladimirZ · 2 pointsr/PS3

Or, if you want to wait a month, you can pick up the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection and have everything Metal Gear you need in one pack, including Metal Gear Solid.

u/pleasesendhelpto · 2 pointsr/Megaten

just like da-man said, grab the Legacy Collection and play the games in chronological order, that'll get you up to speed. Even if you don't have much time, the games themselves are relatively short so you can probably beat each of them in two days if you sit down and really play them. I highly recommend it, it's a great franchise, and the spin-off is great too.

u/TheFrag · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I recommend you to start with this, if you have access to a PS3: Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection

The story is a huge part of MGS and starting with 5 could be quite confusing. I suggest that you play at least MGS3 and Peacewalker first. The events from MGS Ground Zeroes and therefore MGS 5 connect directly to these two games.

If you want to play all games in the chronological order: MGS 3, MGS Peacewalker, MGS Ground Zeroes, MGS 5, Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, MGS, MGS 2, MGS 4 (There are more games in the series, but these are the main ones. Also, I'm not saying, that this is the best way to play the games, but one possible way.)

u/philbertagain · 2 pointsr/PS3

Just order off amazon...

Then buy revengance... maybe ground demo if you i to that and wait for 5 to be cheap.

u/cavemancolton · 2 pointsr/patientgamers

While they are still available, you should really grab the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection ($23.99 USD) which includes Metal Gear 1 and 2, as well as Metal Gear Solid, MGS2 HD, MGS3 HD, MGS: Peace Walker HD, and MGS4. If you want to go digital, you could get the HD collection and you would only be losing out on MGS4, which fine since it's easily the worst Metal Gear game.

u/Crowssb · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Don't worry we get this one every few hours.
Technically you can play all of them on ps3 but I'd recommend getting V (Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain) on ps4. The others (mg1, mg2, mgs, mgs2, mgs3, mgs4 and mpw) you can find bundled in metal gear solid legacy collection on ps3 (

And as a side note portable ops isn't necessary since it's only kinda sorta canon but you can find it in the vita store. Mg rising is an optional spinoff as well.

u/KingHenryVofEngland · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

What's the best way to play MGS 1 in 2014? I don't own an original PlayStation so it's not like I'm about to buy an old copy of that off ebay or something.

I did find this collection though it seems overpriced and isn't sold directly by amazon.

u/TheyCallMeSuperChunk · 2 pointsr/gaming

> There was one were two of those for the PS3


u/t0ny7 · 2 pointsr/apple

Yes you can do that. Also PVR = "Personal Video Recorder" just FYI.

There are tons of ways of getting content over the internet like Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, youtube, pirating, etc.

Also I would suggest checkout out XBMC which is a great media playback program. Also I really like this remove and you can use it with Remote Buddy.

u/S1ocky · 2 pointsr/gaming

There is. It's Bluetooth and awesome.

Sony PlayStation 3 Blu-ray Disc Remote

There are probably third party options too.

u/Ph33rDensetsu · 2 pointsr/gaming

My PS3 remote doesn't have this issue.

u/TheOneThatFailed · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Logitech C270 gets 1280x720 @ 30 FPS source while a PS3 camera gets 640x480 @ 60FPS, and 320x240 @ 120 FPS source.

So it depends on whether you want high FPS or high res.

u/Nixflyn · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Playstation Eye. Good sound quality and excellent noise canceling so others don't hear noises in the room. No mic in your face or additional cords. $7 and prime shipping.

Trust me.

u/Doc_Ok · 2 pointsr/oculus

You can buy a new PS Move controller from Amazon for USD 29.99.

Throw in the original PS3 Eye camera for USD 6.49.

u/preliator · 2 pointsr/gaming

This looks really cool. How does it play without a headtracker? Is it a necessity? And would the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick be good enough? I don't want to drop a lot of money on it. Also, can you still be decent without buying planes?

edit: looks like there's a free program for head tracking, facetrackernoir, and you can get a webcam for under 20 dollars, so it's not too bad in terms of the cost for face tracking.
edit 2: PS3 Eye works on PC and it's 60fps, so that might be the best since it's only 17 dollars.

u/ThatOtherGuy435 · 2 pointsr/starcitizen

Yes, it is.

I use FaceTrackNoIR, and while I've had very mediocre results with the face tracking (mostly with regards to input lag), I've had great success with using its IR tracking module.

What I currently use:

  • PS3Eye @ Amazon (I've ordered two from this page - both have been the 'good' version of the PS3Eye, though I have not actually removed the IR filter from either, and it works fine.)
  • Visible Light Filter (Cut out and stack Red, Green, Blue)
  • DIY IR LED Clip with SFH485P LEDs (I followed the 'serial' build with a 6.8ohm resistor)

    I cut my clip frame out on the CNC router I happen to have, but it is a simple enough shape there is no reason you couldn't cut it out by hand or even make something out of cardboard, as my prototypes were. DXFs are available here, if you happen to have access to one and want something fancy.

    I run the Eye at [email protected], but that is mostly out of habit - I've heard very good results can be had at 320x240, and higher FPS capture is almost always going to result in smoother response. I use the Accela curves for input smoothing straight from the PointTracker project page here. For movement curves, I'd share mine but I'm not really happy with them yet. Much playing around and personal preference there.

    I can run this with no problems with a window at my back. It can sometimes get a little wonky with direct sunlight coming straight through the window, but that really only happens first thing after sunrise - once the sunlight is indirect, no problems.

    All this being said, I don't actually use it in Star Citizen (until they provide TrackIR hooks), but I do use the hell out of it in War Thunder.

u/Sharkeelol · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Playstation Eye

Nice refresh rate, FoV and quality. Buy the mount for $3 so you can place it on your monitor.

It also looks visually pleasing.

u/1093i3511 · 2 pointsr/coins

Just as an idea. You can actually disassemble an old webcam to create a digital microscope on a budget. As seen here

Edit: Or demonstrated here

In general the Playstation Eye might be a good platform / camera to tinker around with. Maybe not the best in resolution. But it's drivers are broadly used by the hacking community, in multitouch setups for instance, as it's relatively cheap ($8.88 on amazon currently for a new one, < $2.00 for a used one) .

Also, it might be an solution just to attach a camera to the ocular of a conventional microscope.

u/imoblivioustothis · 2 pointsr/demonssouls

11$ less if you have amazon prime.

u/Fr_Time · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Dat is a nice canvas. I mean a really nice Canvas. 6 yards?! You could literally paint allll the the things!

Both of these are on my randoms list:

  • My current high priority item is the fitbit flex! I had been given a Force without the charger which was cool for a few days until it died and they no longer sell them anymore. I had really been wanting one for a while. Give me that little extra motivation to be more active.

  • Also on my random list is the PS Move Controller which also goes along with the more active bit. I figure if I am going to play games then I want to be active while doing so. Some games require the second controller, such as this one.

    From my Doctor Who list is this badass FOB watch. Why do I want it? Because it is a badass FOB watch lol.

    Excellent contes... question to ask! Thanks for doing so!
u/Dixonian89 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Do it! I'd buy the moves separately though to save $40 vs the Move combo pack.

u/LukeLC · 2 pointsr/playstation

Playstation Camera, two Move controllers, and games that support them. The last bit is where you'll run into issues, as really there aren't any. PSVR will use them, Dreams will use them, and LittleBigPlanet 3 has limited uses for them, but other than that I honestly can't think of anything.

EDIT: And in case you're wondering, you do NOT need this.

u/abbrasive_tool · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

> I've wanted an analog stick on the left and a mouse for my right hand for years now but sadly nothing :(

I've been using my old PSMove Navigation Controller with my mouse. Works beautifully.

Edit: I'm also using a Madcatz MMO7 mouse due to lack of buttons on the half controller.

u/Ninja_Wallace · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

Ah, I don't personally use a SC, I've just heard from people on Blizz forums that do that they have the same issue. I'm actually using one of these and a mouse, it is how I play every shooter on PC.

u/WreckerCrew · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Glad to hear. I think you made a great move. With the established base of PS4/PS4 Pros out there and the number of PSVR that have been sold already I can see how this wouldn't be a great platform for you to release on next.

If I can ask anything, see if you can get it to run with the Move Navigation Controler. At least as an option. I don't think enough games are using this device and I really think it would help with nausea during movement.

u/ncarson9 · 2 pointsr/oculus

Ya, that doesn't exist.

Not sure where the picture's from, but may be some sort of mock-up.

You can see on the Amazon page it has no tracking ball.

u/Maxeylico · 2 pointsr/Surface

It's the one for the PS3. It remaps a few buttons from the controller (everything on the left side) onto a one-handed wand. It is one half of a pair of devices.

u/shakajumbo · 2 pointsr/OWConsole

Thing is, not all console users adapt to using the keyboard portion of kbm. The PS move controller is a natural substitute for people who don't WASD, and works just as well with a mouse.

u/dumpsta_baby · 2 pointsr/gaming

Could see if there's any guides in how to link a ps move navigation controller to pc (never tried myself but might work). It's got an analogue stick, a trigger and six buttons that could be mapped with xpadder...

edit; can definitely be done here's some instructions:

u/AlphaAxiom · 2 pointsr/playstationvr

This would work well and is part of the Playstation Move system.

I could see having one motion controlled move in one hand, and this in the other.

u/Xtreme2k2 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Like the Playstation Move Navigation Controller? But with a tracking light.

u/lipplog · 2 pointsr/oculus

YOU SIR, need to get your hands on either a Razer Hydra or STEM, a playstation move navigator, then download and install the Half-Life VR mod, so you can have your mind blown the fuck away.

u/Hugashe · 2 pointsr/Blackops4

after much help from the guys/gals here it looks like this may be the winner

u/Vexingly_Perplexed · 2 pointsr/Competitiveoverwatch

I believe it was called a "PS4 Navigation Controller" I highly recommend learning to use a Keyboard as you cannot do things with the controller that you can do with a keyboard (ADAD Strafeing, etc).

Edit: Here it is

There are other input methods you can use as well. Do your research!

Glad I could help, there really wasn't anyone there to help with the transition.

u/Moos3_ · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

he uses one of these:
to move around, and like normally a mouse to shoot.
so becuase he uses a 3rd party controller he can bind his whole keyboard to sounds

u/Britton120 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

Well they did.

Its the navigation controller that you could buy when the move was on ps3

u/MultiMedic · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I'm kinda the same way. Keyboard is still just a bit awkward for me, but I found an amazing solution:

For my mouse i have a great Logitech 700. Just great all around. Lots of buttons, which means left left hand work.

For the left hand however, I bought a Playststion Navigstion controller. It is basically the left half of a console controller with stick, DPad, 2 trigger buttons and a few other gen buttons. It is just IDEAL for me. All you need is the USB charging cable and/or Bluetooth. Just link it up and set a profile. It's super easy once it's set up!



As a bonus, the Move Controller and the 700s can also be programmed to emulate some keyboard buttons, meaning you can play older games that do not have joystick/controller capabilities.

u/Lieutenant_Lit · 2 pointsr/gaming

I use a playstation navigation controller instead of a keyboard for most shooters.

u/AnimatesThings · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

You should try doing a ps3 move controller with mouse combo. It works really well, the only problem I had with it is that the ps3 control drivers eat your bluetooth so i had to do a system restore after every session. Other than that though it combines the best of both worlds

u/TheUncleShow · 2 pointsr/PSVR
u/rm999 · 2 pointsr/PS3

There's a good deal going on at Amazon right now. 300 dollars with a 50 dollar amazon credit (which you can use for an extra controller)

u/Variability · 2 pointsr/patientgamers

IMO you should try and avoid a Super Slim model. It's still possible for you to buy a brand new Slim model PS3. The old Fat ones are just that, old, so reliability is an issue and considering that income is slower for you (assumption) I'd avoid it.

The Super Slim cannot stand on it's side, and it looks pretty awful. I do own one but because I got a deal at Gamestop for trade-ins and my old Slim model I gave to my brother when he left for Uni. The Slim has a great build quality, sleek disc loading tray and is quiet and long lasting; I've had the 320GB since release (3 years?) and it's running smoothly. However, the Super Slim model is noticeably louder.

Now, for size. 160GB models are still in stock at some retailers (Futureshop (CAN)/ Best Buy has had sales for $150), and usually they're on sale since this is an older model that they're pushing out for the new Super Slim model. If you need more hard drive space you can buy another and install it yourself (google for help regarding this matter).

As for games, FAQ has some listed but search game review websites for your preference. Anyone here will just list the typical games that everyone pushes.

Oh, and get PS+ (I'm sure a BNIB PS3 you buy will be bundled with at least 30 days).

u/SG-17 · 2 pointsr/gamecollecting

Every so often Sony will release a system bundle that includes a PS3 with a new game, like the upcoming ACIII bundle.

Amazon will also occasionally have sales, like right now with the systems.

u/NeoHumpty · 2 pointsr/truegaming

Since we are talking game systems, lets compare this to this. Or this to this. Oh. You want to discuss the cost of flash? What about just buying one of these? At least that comes out to be about $1 for every extra GB. Nintendo knows a thing or two about making cartridges, I don't see how they can justify the markup for what is basically a circuit board. I'm not hating on them, and like I said, I didn't realize that the cheaper one doesn't include NintendoLand. So, that was my fault. But the above example with the PS3 includes a game and 160GB more than the one that is only $50 less. I'm just not that impressed.

u/Captain_Midnight · 2 pointsr/buildapc

This is $335 before rebates, as low as I could get it while meeting your request.

I'd also consider the fact that you can pick up a PS3 and a copy of the upcoming "Premium" release and stay within budget. And the PS3 can act as a media hub, playing Blu-rays and streaming videos.

u/LogicalSpider · 2 pointsr/battlefield3

Most people, and using here as an example, are hardened to answer this question with an immediate "no." Conversely, there are several mouse/keyboard converters for the PS3; here is the best one: Eagle Eye Converter
Plenty of videos on how to install, operate, and how it functions are available on Youtube. The advantage of using this in comparison to a controller is valid, but a great number of people are using it.

u/Tupandactylus · 2 pointsr/gaming

You could use this if you really wanted to.

u/xenophobe51 · 2 pointsr/ps3bf3

You can get a converter box. There are also PS3 mouse controllers like the Splitfish and Aimon brands. I tried the Aimon one and it works well once you configure it, but I hated the button layout on the left hand 'nunchuk' and the responsiveness of the shape buttons on the mouse, so I returned it.

Edited for spelling and added links.

u/Rakudjo · 2 pointsr/Rockband

Unfortunately, no. You will need:

  • Alesis Nitro kit (or any other kit you see fit)

  • Rock Band Midi converter (labeled for RB3, but still works for RB4) for the correct console

  • Midi cable (you may be able to find one cheaper)

    Overall it's about an extra $35 on top of the kit.
u/sons_of_mothers · 2 pointsr/Rockband

PS4 Adapter: PlayStation 3 Rock Band 3 MIDI PRO - Adapter - $39.95

If you have an Xbox bad news is those are much harder to come by, but good news is you have rock band on an Xbox so your calibration should be top notch

u/qspec02 · 2 pointsr/Fighters

It depends on your use case, but I find the place I am most likely to spend money first is on the board. I want/need something that easily plays all modern consoles.

That said, I think starting cheap can be perfectly viable. My first stick was this monstrosity. Which over time turned into this little cutie. I ended up paying an art commission, upgrading to Seimitsu parts, and though I've since moved on, I loved that thing.

I'd make sure the one you want has room in the case as not all fightsticks are easily moddable, but yeah... start cheap if you want and build up over a few months or so.

u/natiahs · 2 pointsr/WWEGames

I still have a couple of the arcade sticks!

(Just to clarify, I mean in my personal collection. The ones on Amazon are not mine.)

u/DaymanMaster0fKarate · 2 pointsr/SF4

Don't spend your money on that.

If you play on PC or PS3 get this, it's $40 right now. thats the best stick you can get that's not Sanwa or Semitsu parts.

Otherwise get this pad.

u/elentrepreneur · 2 pointsr/Skullgirls

When I was researching sticks, I attempted to calculated out how much money and effort was required to build my own stick, compared to buying a TE, or other premade. When you talk about buttons being roughly $25, joystick being around the same, and PCB's ranging from $30-$60, it does add up quickly. On top of the wiring/soldering you have to do, it was more than worthwhile to purchase an arcade stick from a company that specializes in that very thing.

There are cheaper options, though. The Mayflash USB Arcade Fight Stick and the WWE All-Stars Brawl Stick are both decent sticks in the $30-$40 price range.

u/Dropkick715 · 2 pointsr/PS3

If you are not sure if playing games with a stick is something you are going to like, an okay choice for a starter stick would be the WWE Brawl Stick. If you decide to become more serious about fighting games these sticks are fully compatible to swap in Sanwa brand stick and buttons no soldering required, which are what most players prefer and the same parts most expensive sticks use.

The arcade stick on the left is custom made and is compatible with 360, PS3, and PC. I got that one used on eBay for $80 shipped. So it is possible to get a good stick with full Sanwa parts used. These parts were designed for use in arcades and they can take some real abuse.

The second one is limited out of 300 and I got that for $150 with a book bag carrying case. It looks like Amazon has this model for $137 right now. Usually when there is a major fighting game tournament going on these sticks get discounted even more on the official Madcatz store.

1st, none of the features are in any particular order. They don't have levels yet.

2nd, I was just trying to write down as many things as I could about the Cobras' abilities and how they might translate into 5e mechanics, so there are bound to be overlaps.

I suppose actually knowing what the Cobras can do would be the critical factor, so I highly recommend you purchase yourself a copy of MGS3 (or the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection).

MGS3 is a great place to start, because that is game that is the earliest in the chronological order of the game history, set in time prior to all the other game settings!

u/Ptylerdactyl · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

>There's not a single disclaimer on the packaging or any online listing stating that MGS1 and the VR missions were a one-time only download code.



u/TheWanderingSpirit · 2 pointsr/truegaming

Go buy this:

And get ready for some awesome gaming. Highly advise in playing the order the games were released due era of gaming each iteration came from. This helps you appreciate the games a bit more as they change control wise.

I just recently purchased the Legacy Collection for 44 dollars on Amazon with the digital graphic novels. Excellent deal.

u/Rumptiddliey · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

You can get a used PS3 pretty cheap now and the MGS legacy collection is under $45 on Amazon

  1. Metal Gear Series: 3rd Person tatical espionage series where you go behind enemy lines to sabotage/defeat the enemy. The Legacy Collection is a steal for 49$ and includes 8 games (the later games reward no kill play throughs). Instead of killing choose to use tranq gun and tranq sniper rifle, the game even rewards you for completing it without killing anyone. Even more bonus if you do it unseen. (If you own a PS3 and have never played this you missing out)

  2. Batman Arkham Asylum/City: I downloaded the demo of Asylum before the game came out not expecting anything and being completely blown away by the engaging controls and excellent story. Batman does not kill enemies but rather disables them and stealth is key to survival. There is a reason people talk about this game and it has such high reviews. It is a Super Hero/Comic book game done RIGHT!

u/smarteepantz · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A PS3 bundle. I just clicked the GTA bundle because it's my brother's favorite game.

The reason I want this item is that I love video games but I have not owned a console since I got a Gameboy color for Christmas as a child. It would also be something awesome to do with my brother.

If I never got this item, I would be sad, but I'm sure I would eventually buy myself a video game console, but it wouldn't be for another fiveish years, once I have enough money for something like that.

There's the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection on the ps3


"The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition
Also includes Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions via included voucher codes "

u/TheREELPIXLman · 2 pointsr/whowouldwin

Just start with this guy right here and you'll know what the hype is about.

u/snoogaloo · 2 pointsr/gaming

I just played the first MGS for the first time ever about 6 months ago. The graphics aren't the greatest but I still thought it was a lot of fun and has aged decently well.

All of the MGS series is heavy on story. If you skip MGS1 I would at least watch a let's play on youtube or a story synopsis.

I would recommend getting the legacy collection and if you find you don't like the first game you can always skip it.

Edit: Just found this in my saved links. This is an awesome resource if you're just starting. Have fun!

u/criticalchocolate · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

> no problem, i also played melee for about a year and then transitioned to this game, this is my first sf game. I love melee but i can honestly say i haven't looked back

buy a fight commander 4, aside the default ps4 controller imo its the best pad to play on, good features , good quality and the 6 button layout is perfect for SF games. also the controller is not TOO expensive

heres a less feature filled on, but equally good

If you want a quick lowdown on whats not on the cheaper model is, its missing the repositional d-pad as well as the dpad diagonal sensitivity adjuster (this helps for more rigid controls or looser controls for easier circular motions). The shape is also slightly different but thats not a biggy :)

u/insanityper · 2 pointsr/Fighters
u/IronBadger9 · 2 pointsr/Fighters

you CAN use DS4Windows which is great you can set everything on the controller

or you can get the alternate Fighting Commander that Hori sells which has an XInput switch the problem with this controller is that the home button doesn't work in XInput, which makes it worthless to me lol

personally I don't like tinkering with programs to run controllers so I just stick with my 360 Fightpad

u/pika9000 · 1 pointr/PS3
  1. Depends on which model you got but the online/store bundles are generally the same

  2. I believe that Final Fantasy 13 is considered to run better (I think). There might be other games, but I don't really know.

  3. The inFamous Collection has downloadable DLC and an extra downloadable 'game.' Metal Gear Solid Legacy Edition has the original PS1 game (MGS 1) as a downloadable code off of PSN. Those are the 2 cases I know where the DLC is downloadable, but I'm pretty sure this applies to all GOTY verssions of games.

  4. It depends on which state you live in (if you live in the US). Do a Google search for your state with 'PSN tax' or something similar.

  5. If you end up buying PS+, you'll find yourself downloading a ton of games pretty quickly. If thats the case, you would probably need to get a new hard drive (a 1TB drive off of Amazon would be most convenient). If you don't get PS+, and don't plan to store music/movies/photos on the machine, of course you won't need it.

  6. If you buy a PS2 game off of the PSN store, it will handle saves on its own. However, if you insert a PS1 disc that you may have, or if you bought a PS1 game off of the PSN store, you'll have to manually install a 'Virtual Memory Card' in the Game Menu on the XMB. Side note, every PS3 is backwards compatible with PS1 discs so if you have a PS1 disc that you want to play put it in.

  7. PS3s are mostly region free (except for a handful of Japanese games). If you want DLC, the PSN account that you use has to match the region the game is from.
    For example, I live in the US. If I were to buy a game from England, and I want to buy DLC for it, I would have to create an EU or British account just for the DLC for that game despite the fact that my PS3 and the IP address for my internet is American. Since you said you live in Australia (at least thats what it seems), and the bundle is off of the US Amazon site, you would have to buy the DLC for infamous and uncharted 1+2 off of the US PSN.

  8. If you want to get good deals, go to /r/GameDeals for good discounts. Generally, that subreddit focuses on PC games, but occasionally they'll have some good deals on console games as well.

You're probably thinking of this collection. The MGS HD collection is the same as the 360, it's got 2, 3, and peace walker.

u/denbowski · 1 pointr/PS4

Strictly PS4, Nathan Drake Collection.

Across all of PlayStation? MGS Legacy Collection.

u/halcyoncmdr · 1 pointr/metalgearsolid

>legacy of snake version

The Legacy Collection

It's only $26 on Amazon now. It also comes with digital codes to get MGS1 and VR Missions.

And MGS V is only $16 on PS3 for the Day One version or $25 for PS4.

On that same note, Metal Gear Rising is less than $10, Ground Zeroes is less than $10 on PS3 and less than $17 on PS4.

Basically you can have the entire Metal Gear saga on PS3 for only about $60, the price of
one* brand new game.

For OP and anyone else looking for more Metal Gear, this is upcoming: Metal Gear Solid Legacy
> From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, metal gear solid: the legacy collection offers the most complete metal gear solid experience ever. Featuring eight complete games, metal gear, metal gear 2, metal gear solid 1, metal gear solid 2: HD edition, metal gear solid 3: HD edition metal gear solid 4: trophy edition, metal gear solid: peace walker HD edition, and metal gear solid: VR missions along with two Ashley wood digital graphic, the legacy collection offers metal gear and stealth action fans a chance to experience all the heroic game play, compelling design and immersive storytelling of the mgs franchise in one complete package.

u/LunchpaiI · 1 pointr/halo

MGS HD collection is pretty much textbook on how not to make an HD collection. It comes with 2+3 and then a remaster of a handheld game. While Peacewalker is great, the reasons behind why they chose that and not MGS1 are forever a mystery. For a series with such an unorganized chronology, the MGS: HD Collection isn't exactly the most ideal way to get into the series.

The Legacy Collection coming out in July comes with all the titles. However only the ones included in the original HD collection are remade for HD. They give you a redeemable code for MGS 1 on the PSN Marketplace and it's just the game from 1998. I really don't know why they didn't remake every single game in HD. There is most definitely a demand for it, and they know there is too; otherwise they wouldn't be coming out with this collection.

Sorry if I'm ranting here, I'm just a little pissed at how Kojima did his Metal Gear collections.

The GTA 5 500GB PS3 bundle might be a good option if you're planning on getting that game. and its only $269.99

u/scooter1265 · 1 pointr/PS3

I don't think it includes the headset. If that's the case, that's a hell of a deal. Over $210 (MSRP) worth of extras and a PS3 for only $299.

I think that's too good to be true.

Edit: [Here's]( the listing.

u/neyuh · 1 pointr/PS3

I actually want to buy a PS3 to play GTA V. I find a lot of great deals (like this one), but if you add the import fees, I'd end up paying more than if I would just buy the PS3 from my friend and pre-ordering GTA V separately.

u/krillingt75961 · 1 pointr/gaming

Best bet would be to by a new one honestly. You can get the GTAV bundle for less than $300 so you get a game with it. Also the ps3 has a 500gb HDD which is great if you decide to buy PS+. There is also an Uncharted 3 bundle that has a 250gb hdd and a year of PS+ for $250 on amazon and im sure other places as well. Basically paying $170 for the ps3, $30 for the GOTY of Uncharted 3, and $50 for the PS+ subscription which will pay for itself in the games and discounts you can get. Here's the link for the bundles that let you choose which one you want.

u/bandit2 · 1 pointr/wiiu

If you are a potential PS3 buyer you should check out this.

u/famouself · 1 pointr/patientgamers

This is not a sale, but it's still a fantastic bang for the buck. If your son is mature enough and into the series, I would highly recommend the Grand Theft Auto V 500 GB PS3 bundle:
After applying the value of GTA 5 and the 30 day PlayStation Plus membership, you are getting the console for around $200. In comparison Sony has recently released a 12 GB version going for $200 as well. For the same price you will have access to a significantly larger storage capacity. One of the greatest values to be found on the PS3 is PlayStation Plus, featuring tons of fantastic discounts for members and up to 64 free digital games per year! If your son continues down that road, he will definitely need the extra space.

P.S. sorry for the poor formatting, I am using my phone

u/watsoned · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The disc drive/optical drive or whatever has gone out. It was reading games, but not BluRay movies (idk, it didn't make sense) but now it's not reading anything. Just making some horrible clanking/grinding noise when I put a disc in and then sitting there doing nothing. I don't have the technical aptitude to be able to tackle it myself, and best I can tell it'd cost about $170 to send it off to Sony to get fixed since it's out of warranty (I bough it second-hand). So I decided I'll just save up $130 additional and buy this combo pack, either with AC3 or GTA V. It'd be a major upgrade as far as the hard drive goes, which is a plus since I've been using my PS3 a lot for movies lately.

u/mikeyseed · 1 pointr/PS3

I'd recommend the Legacy Collection new off Amazon. I got the one without the artbook for $29.99. I wanted the codes for MGS1 and MGS VR Missions so I could download them to my Vita (MGS1 needs a PS3 to transfer in NA, FYI). Even at that price for the amount of games you're getting, this is a steal. I've only ever beat MGS 1 & 2. MGS1 for PS1 may be hard for someone who's never played it before to get into. If you played action games from the PS1/N64/Dreamcast era though you should be able to pick up and play. Easy mode is pretty damn easy for MGS games (MGS2 even has a "very easy" mode if I'm not mistaken) so if you just want to play and catch up on the story for those games, you can do so with minimal frustration. If you like a challenge, start on Normal and work your way up.

EDIT: $29.99 Canadian, FYI. Looks like it's down to $27.50 now too

u/YGOnewguy · 1 pointr/PS3
u/nest5900 · 1 pointr/PS3

amazon is $25 and the ebay one is $23 but slightly slower shipping

make sure you buy it sealed! do not buy it used, MGS1 and vr missions come in voucher codes and you need them unused

This will be the release order for the game and the recommended order to view them. I started playing them from MGS1 and will play MG1 and MG2 at a later date.

Metal Gear 1

Metal Gear 2

Metal Gear Solid 1

Metal Gear Solid 2

Metal Gear Solid 3

Metal Gear Solid 4 with no gameplay

Metal Gear Solid 4 with gameplay

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker short

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker long

Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero

Chronologically it goes MG3, MGSPW, MGSGZ, MG1, MG2, MGS1, MGS2, MGS4.

Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain will Happen After Ground Zero.

You could jump into Phantom Pain from what I heard,

"I guess I tried to use what we did in Peace Walker to bring this motivation to Ground Zeroes. Then you might ask, will the people who didn't play Peace Walker be able to understand what is going on in the game. Well because there are 9 years between Ground Zeroes and the beginning of Phantom Pain.

So when the Phantom Pain starts, Snake is in a similar position to the player that is playing Metal Gear Solid for the first time - there is a huge blank that he need to fill in, and he has to figure out what happened during those 9 years as he completes missions. I'm trying to make the game in way that people who are playing MGS for the first time will at some point have a similar understanding and level of motivation to those who have played Peace Walker."


If you'll like to play the games, Metal Gear Solid Legacy comes with all the games I mentiond exept for Ground Zero.

Have Fun

u/xSavag3x · 1 pointr/metalgearsolid

It will depend heavily on if you get a used copy or not, the download codes are most likely one time use.

That is where I bought my copy, still sealed.

u/deceptaconsoundwave · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

Same here. I use this because I heard about the d-pads and FC3 rotating after awhile.

The shoulder buttons can be very very sensitive which can work against you depending on who you are.

The d-pads and the buttons are initially very very stiff. I took to the controller like a duck to water honestly. Combos are a little easier, sometimes I find that I'm getting ahead of the inputs though.

u/Supahfree · 1 pointr/BattleForTheGrid

Any controller you're comfortable with will work. Especially a console controller. I almost exclusively play fighting games. When i was using a pad it was similar to this.

Personally i use an arcade stick but that's just cause it's how i learned to play fighting games.

u/minimalisto · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

Unfortunately the fighting commander 4 is the older version.

The 4 and 3 toggle on the front lets you switch from PS4 to PS3 modes, but there is no PC mode.

This is the newer one with 4/3/PC switch.

The fighting commander 4 you ordered is still good though, and Capcom has plans to support the game with X-input eventually.

In the meantime, I hear x360ce works really well.

u/BerenKaneda · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

It has the same price in all European Amazons, but here you have:

But its a reseller and also from Japan, so in the end it doesnt matter where you buy it.

u/jessewaste · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

There's a new version out too, I've had it for like a week and it's pretty good. I'm kinda new to street fighter and played with a xbox360 controller before, this certainly feels better.

This one is actually cheaper than the fc4 here in Europe though.

u/ImperiousStout · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

The new one has xinput support. Maybe you can return it for that?

It's just called the Hori Fighting Commander.

u/Killit_Witfya · 1 pointr/MortalKombat

you gotta get a different controller. would be 100x better

u/amanohyo · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

No stick is fine, especially for SFV, since it is very forgiving. I'm a Gief/Guile main that started on SNES/arcades, and use a pad because the 360 motions are easier for me. I've used a Hori Fighting Commander for two years now and it's held up well. It feels a little cheap (especially the shoulder buttons), but the d-pad is smooth and responsive and 360s/720s are a piece of cake. Assuming you are on PC, I think this one should work:

Maybe once every couple years, they go on sale for $19.99 at Amazon, but anything under $40 is a good price. If you've ever used a SNES or Japanese Saturn pad, it's a good choice that will be easy to get used to.

u/MNSTRMKK · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I'm looking for a fightpad for the PS4. The Dualshock 4 is great, but I think six face buttons would really improve my game, as I sometimes find using the bumpers and the triggers a bit confusing.

It seems that there are two options:

Hori Fighting Commander

Mad Catz Fightpad Pro

The Hori has gotten great reviews and it looks amazing (my first SF experiences were on the Sega Genesis, so I love the design), but I've heard that the d-pad breaks after a short period of time. I also would have to import it from Japan, which isn't that convenient.

The Mad Catz, on the other hand, has gotten very negative reviews, but the one I'm interested in is the new improved version. The revised fightpad seems to be well received, but there's not much information about it. And many people online seem to say that everything Mad Catz does, besides the sticks, is garbage.

So, any opinions / experiences on either of these?

There's collections for all 3 series. Sly Cooper Collection, Ratchet & Clank Collection, and Jak & Daxter Collection.

The only thing is that the R&C collection is missing Deadlocked, my third favorite one. Good thing I still have it on PS2, though. Other than that, those are pretty much the entire series. All of Sly Cooper is on PS3 now, all main series Jak & Daxter are on PS3, and all Ratchet & Clank minus Deadlocked are on PS3.

u/BigSHug825 · 1 pointr/gaming
u/LazarusRizen · 1 pointr/RatchetAndClank

If you have a PS3, definitely grab the original trilogy first, as it's a scant 30 bucks on Amazon and has what fans call 2 of the best games in the series.

In terms of order, go for 2 (Going Commando), then 3 (Up Your Arsenal), then 1 (Original), as the second game does a very good job summing up the first game while having much more enjoyable gameplay to start off with.

u/Duckman0121 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Ratchet and Clank

The reason I pick Ratchet and Clank is because when I was younger, I remember my cousin playing it on his ps2. He let me pick a game for him and I chose it for the cool character on the box. So we go home and play it for like a day straight. Next time I'm leaving his house, he hands me fat PS2 with the game that he bought for me becuase I liked it so much. Ratchet and Clank is still my favourite game to date, but I dont have the HD collection for my PS3.

Playstation 3 games are sold both as discs and as codes.


You can see in the above example, one of the versions of Grand Theft Auto V is PS3 Digital Code. If someone bought that and sent the code to OP in a personal message, he could download it on his PS3.

Unfortunately they tend to be quite expensive. They may or may not be region-locked (code from a North American site only working on North American PS3s). I'm not sure. Most physical games aren't region locked, but downloadable content often is.

u/silvercorona · 1 pointr/GrandTheftAutoV

Not sure who told you it's not available for launch day delivery, it says so right on the site in grreen text for me:

Do you have Amazon Prime?

If you have Amazon Prime you can get Release Date Delivery for free, and if you pre-ordered before it was listed on site you will still get it on release day.

if you are not prime I think you have to go back into you order and select the right shipping speed.

u/Thisnameiswaytoolong · 1 pointr/GTA

u/Big_Fish79 · 1 pointr/gaming

Yes, for both. It's listed right on Amazons product page. It's in bold right under the Pre-order bonus info.

u/vetyu · 1 pointr/gaming

I agree this is an extreme example, but i find it infuriating retail stores charge almost double what the US pay and then complain the retail sector is losing business to the internet and are demanding taxes for goods bought on the internet under $1000, atm there is no tax.

With your example you linked Max Payne 3 on PS3 game at JB HI-FI and the same game on PC at Amazon there's not much of a difference in price, but if you want the game just for PS3 it is $29 at JB HI-FI and $15.34 on Amazon almost double at JB HI-FI

Also pre-order GTA V at JB HI-FI for $99 or $59.99 at Amazon

And you're right i am shocked EB games are still in business as well

That depends entirely on what those two screens are doing, could you put a map up on screen two and keep it relatively stably displayed. Probably, but I doubt you could relive your golden eye couch battling with 1 system and two screens.

However, that said, there's precedence for it on the PS3. They released a screen with a technology called Simulview that allowed 2 players with polarized 3D glasses to view separate views on the same screen.

u/protopersona · 1 pointr/PS4

u/GambitsEnd · 1 pointr/PS4Deals

I always get it confused the other Playstation TV (technically PS 3D Display) and got super excited.

u/teemoore · 1 pointr/reddeadredemption

I sold my stand alone copy & bought the GOTY edition.
$21 on Amazon!

I'm not from the Canada, so here's something sub-$20 from my WL.

WiFi will give you a shit experience. Wire it or don't let people use it while you play. Quality is adjusted base on your internet and also depend on the game. Some games look like hot garbage while others look amazing. Sadly Red is a PS3 game and cannot be download for max quality. If you have a ps3 20 dollars year edition. Also try to look for a gaming cafe and ask if they have the game.

u/insomniatica · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Welcome back!

Here's my list of suggestions, why, and links to where to get them. A few are only available on computer, but you'll see which ones:

  • Thomas Was Alone (Meta. A cute puzzle game about AIs, and their relationship to the game and developers. It's simple in graphics and big on heart. = computer - itunes - android
  • The Stanley Parable (another meta game. About the players role in games itself and their relationship to the developers. This is a MUST HAVE for anyone who is really into games. It's fantastic, hilarious and oddly artsy) = computer -
  • Telltale's "The Walking Dead" seasons 1 & 2. (These are some of the best games I've played. Point and Click adventure games that everyone loves, even those who don't like point and click games. They are extremely emotional and heart-pounding. I recommend it highly, especially if you want a game that you can watch him play, or vice versa, and really get a fantastic story. Storyline continues based on your decisions in the previous game) = SEASON ONE: computer - PS3 - XBOX360 - PSVITA - iPhone/iPad (first episode free, others are in-game purchases, same with all the mobile games) - Android === SEASON 2: computer - PS3 - XBOX360 - iPhone/iPad - Android
  • To The Moon (sweet looking 16 bit game that is more of an interactive story. It routinely makes people cry because it's so darned sweet. Love is a central theme.) = computer
  • Borderlands 2 and/or Borderlands the PreSequel (both fun and funny FPS games that you can run coop if you like) = BORDERLANDS 2: computer - XBOX360 - PS3 === BORDERLANDS PRESEQUEL: computer - XBOX360 - PS3
  • Portal (fun and funny puzzle game - but he MAY have already played this if the Half-Life 2 he got was the full "The Orange Box")
  • Portal 2 (also fun and funny, but with a coop mode as well) = computer - XBOX360 - PS3
  • Fallout 3 and/or Fallout: New Vegas (Post apocolypic games that are fun and often funny. They are open world RPGs with FPS playing style, although you can switch to 3rd person. Fallout 3 is more epic, grand and is more metropolitan, and Fallout New Vegas is more like a spaghetti western, intimate, and has better writing/storyline in my opinion) = FALLOUT 3: computer - XBOX360 - PS3 == FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS: computer - XBOX360 - PS3
  • Mass Effect 1, 2, & 3 (RPG/FPS set the future, in space, where the storyline continues, using your decisions from the previous games) = computer - XBOX360 - PS3
  • Red Dead Redemption (an open world RPG/FPS that takes pages from both spaghetti westerns and film noir. If you get this, be sure to get the add on called "Undead Nightmare", where you fight Zombies and meet mythical creatures. The base game is more artsy, and Undead Nightmare is just a squat load of fun.) The links that follow have both thenormal game, and Undead Nightmare in one. = XBOX360 - PS3

  • A different idea is to actually get him a wireless controller for his phone! If he has an Andriod, I would suggest the Power A Moga Hero Power It's portable, holds the phone, and I just am in love with mine. And because I have an Andriod, I can download ROMs to play older games like Zelda: Ocarina of Time, etc etc. But the controller works with SO many games! If he has an iPhone or iPad, or if you want another option for Android, I would go with the iPega. I don't have one, but it has the highest reviews.

    As for if you should give 1 or 2 gifts, I think 2 might be a lot of fun! But it might depend on what the "1st place" person has on their list and what you want to give them! I'd say make the decision based off of what you want to give the main winner! =)


    EDIT - 3DS Games to consider:

  • Fire Emblem: Awakening - it's one of the best RPGs out for the 3DS. It's immersive and epic. Top reviews across the board.
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf because everyone loves it so much and it's just adorable.
  • Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney because anything Phoenix Wright related is flipping amazing and totally fun.
  • Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance A great option if he's played other Kingdom Hearts games.
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Especially if he's into Zelda, I agree with others that this is a nice option. Top-down action that returns to Zelda's roots.

    edit 2: P.S: I'm new. I'll be making an intro post hopefully tonight! So hopefully it's alright that I posted here first. I was just excited, as I'm a gamer and love helping people with what to play next. In any event... HI!!

    edit 3: I just made my [INTRO] post. It's here if you/anyone's interested.
u/suace · 1 pointr/GirlGamers

When you do pick it up, go for the game of the year edition, they have one which comes with all the expansions and you'll definitely want those!

u/chickenpie233 · 1 pointr/KingdomHearts

You can make your problem 999x easier if you go with the PC route. Also, if you miss the nostalgia and really want to play with a ps2 controller buy this, it's what I use and it's compatible with ps1, ps2, and ps3 controllers. I'm using a PS1 right now on it and it works flawlessly. This way, you can use a ps controller on your PC while playing kh2fm. I'm pretty nostalgic myself, but I believe you only need 60 fps on the game to run which isn't much firepower required for most pcs these days.

u/DemacianKnight · 1 pointr/osugame

Did you get this one by any chance? As far as I can tell, none of the PS2 connectors seem to work.

u/EczyEclipse · 1 pointr/CloneHero

This is the one I got:

Low latency, and whammy works. I haven't been able to get star power tilt to work with it though.

u/gratarian · 1 pointr/DanceDanceRevolution

I'm wondering if you could use a coupler to a PS2 adapter.

USB Type A Female to Female then
PS2 to USB Adapater

Not sure if this wouldn't work since it is expecting the connection to go from PS2 to USB rather than from USB to PS2.

u/ClassyClassic76 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap
u/StarPupil · 1 pointr/KingdomHearts

Well, there are plenty of converters from the PS2 controllers to USB, so try taking a look at amazon for those. They seem to be pretty cheap, all things considered, and then you don't have to buy a new controller or anything.

u/OurEyesArentReal · 1 pointr/NeverBeGameOver
u/witty-original-name · 1 pointr/emulation

Looks nice, but damn, I could get a new Logitech Gamepad for like $10 less! Trying to spend as little as possible :/

I was thinking of trying some cheap janky-looking thing like this or this. Is there a catch with these cheapo models? Reviews seem pretty inconsistent! Thanks for the reply.

u/tomkatt · 1 pointr/emulation

Something like this should do it. I'd do a bit of research though, as it's been years since I used a PS2-to-USB adapter, so I don't know if some are better than others.

u/MadmanAmadeus · 1 pointr/emulator

Hey there! I've been shopping for one myself. I've just ordered the following adapter:

I ordered this one last week and it was a bunch of cheap rubbish:

New one should be here on Tuesday. I'll try to remember this thread and let you know how it works.

By the way, do you use any sort of emulators?

u/VanWesley · 1 pointr/PS3

There's always those PSOne classics on PSN.

Also 2 high profile JRPGs from the PS2 era are getting HD re-releases soon. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix is coming out early Sept and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD is due out before the end of the year. If you pre-order them now you get a free upgrade to the limited edition too!

u/nahcabmA · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix
It doesn't even come out till next month, so I have plenty of patience.

u/ChaosZeroX · 1 pointr/KingdomHearts

On that page it says you will. Maybe its your location? Not sure.

u/Pulse761 · 1 pointr/gaming

Ever play the original Bioshock or Bioshock 2? I enjoyed those two just as much as Infinite.

As for digging out your PS2, you can wait until September if you want to play the KH HD 1.5 ReMix. Basically you get to play KH1 and Re:CoM with new abilities, commands, enemies, and new KeyBlades (iirc). Best of all it's been remastered and it's in HD! But it's also worth mentioning that you can watch 358/2 days as a movie which has also been remastered (and given additional cutscenes I believe). Oh and there's Trophy support. They're doing this for KH 2 as well and it's been hinted at somewhere, but I'm too lazy to find it. They're going to release a KH 2.5 HD ReMix with KH 2, Re:Coded, and Birth By Sleep. Unfortunately Dream Drop Distance will still have to be purchased for the 3DS if you intend on playing it as it's not expected to be part of the 2.5 bundle. After this is released, KH 3 is expected next.

u/ThisPostIsPillar · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Garry's Mod, holy flapdads, it's amazing. You just walk around and do whatever the hell you want, and there are so many mods. I currently can swing around like spiderman, have shootouts with Batman and the monsters from Amnesia, dance with Hitler in the Ed Edd and Eddy Cul-de-sac, run from Teletubbies in a haunted hotel, all while dressed as Hatsune Miku. And if that doesn't sound fun enough, there's up to 12 player multiplayer, and you can leave sandbox mode and have a really for real gun fight. Or lightsaber fight. Or Iron man suit fight. Or kill each other dramatically with the gun from the Dear Sister SNL skit.

You can do near everything you want, I can't stop playing.

If you do pre-orders, I'd love this.

If not, A PSN card will be perfect!
Then I could get Katamari for my Vita, along with Rayman origins and some other goodies :D

Thanks for the awesome contest, man. You ROCK.

u/NJBilbo · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well you can't go wrong with any of the LEGO games. I've recently been replaying LEGO Star Wars: the Complete Saga on my PS3 (even if its about to be "incomplete"!!!!). I've also really loved playing Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey 2 since it not only let's you play as Mickey Mouse, but I love the idea of a shattered, dystopian vision of everything Disney...something hardcore Disney nuts like me should hate! It's the same feeling I had when I played Kingdom Hearts once upon a time, which is why I can't wait for this to com out since I can't play the originals on my busted PS2 and won't be getting a PS4 anytime soon either :(

u/ranatalus · 1 pointr/news

It's definitely a good game, and belongs in the series. Purists feel like it's a far departure from the others, though. I enjoyed it.

Your best bet would probably be to get MGS Legacy Collection, which includes HD remakes of MGS 2 and 3, plus MGS4. If you can find an unopened one, it also includes PSN codes for downloads of MGS 1 and MGS 1: VR Missions

u/fieldstudies · 1 pointr/patientgamers

I picked up MGS:V at a pawn shop for 20 bucks recently and instead of playing it I shelved it for now because I have never completed a MGS game before (had a brief experience with MGS3 when someone sold it to me with my first PS2 many many years ago) So I picked up the MGS Legacy collection on amazon for 23 bucks (Link) and played the very first Metal Gear! It was extremely frustrating but surprisingly addicting and fun! I never want to hear the soundtrack again but now I'm on to Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake and excited to start Metal Gear Solid finally and be able to play the first one on the Vita!

(if someone decides to pick this up because of this post let me save you some frustration, the two MSX Metal Gear games are inside Metal Gear 3 on Disc 2 of the legacy edition)

u/hughmadphaggot · 1 pointr/smashbros

haha no worries here's the amazon link, here's the wiki

it's got extra cool shit in it as well, the only thing that's missing is twin snakes which is a bummer but you still get great value with it.

u/CharioteerVacuole · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Major Mayhem
Party Of Sin
Shattered Haven
Vanguard Princess

I'll take any of them, but if I must choose, Party of Sin

I just dont have the time to play these

u/solidmixer · 1 pointr/metalgearsolid

Shouldn't the text be evenly in the center? It looks... off. I bought the JPN region one so I'm not sure how this one should look (US/PAL?)

EDIT: Centered text... What region is it?

u/PaintedOnGenes · 1 pointr/gaming

$49.96 preorder on right now. That's a great deal.

u/cosmictrain · 1 pointr/gaming
u/TheBeardedDen · 1 pointr/gaming

HD edition for PS3/360 as well. 2, 3 and peace walker. Vita edition doesn't have peace walker.

Also next month on PS3.... A 50$ pack with 1, 2HD, 3HD, VR missions, 4 and peace walker. with the MSX games on the 2HD menu.

Amazon info here

u/markherrington5 · 1 pointr/metalgearsolid

Is this a good way to start, or what!?

u/TriplePlay2425 · 1 pointr/gaming

It's MGS2, 3, 4, and Peace Walker bundled on the disc. It is the same HD remakes as the ones on the MGS HD Collection that they released a while back, but this includes MGS4 (which is the same as the normal version of MGS4). They also give you a PSN download code for MGS1 (and the MGS VR Missions), which is not an HD remake or anything. It also has Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 that you may access from MGS3's menu. I think it comes with some bonus material like an art book and stuff like that.

Note: this is available for PS3-only though, since MGS4 has not been re-made for any other platforms.

u/ArstanNeckbeard · 1 pointr/Games

Well you're in luck, in ~30 days!

Seriously, play them all.

u/Stevied1991 · 1 pointr/gaming
u/signofthenine · 1 pointr/PS4

I'm in the same boat. Didn't jump to the PS camp until last June or so, and while I picked up the last huge MGS collection for ps3, I've not had a chance to play any of it.

u/AutoModerator · 1 pointr/GameDeals

Charity links:

u/StealthBlade98 · 1 pointr/gaming

was meryl in MGSIV? I know of MGS but i never gotten around to playing it since i never played the originals. Looking at the legacy addition though seems it's priced pretty well on amazon at the moment

u/hcazdub · 1 pointr/GameDeals

This is what you are looking for. Unfortunately it is not on PC and Konami will probably never make a collection including GZ and TPP. Your best option is emulators at the moment. MGS was ported to PC but only exists in a physical format unless you look real hARRRGHd for it lol.

u/dave_gotstufftodo · 1 pointr/NYYankees

Not for PS4, just on PS3: Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection

u/Rc2124 · 1 pointr/starcraft

They released a collection of a bunch of MGS games on the PS3. Not sure if they've done the same for newer consoles. Could be worth looking into. Emulators will always be there if you'd like, of course.

u/Anergos · 1 pointr/buildapc

>Nice tip on the PS3 remote. I assume you mean the official PS3 DVD remote, and not the game controller right?

Yeah, the bluray/dvd remote (this one) Find a bluetooth dongle that supports toshiba bluetooth stack (maybe all work but that is 100% tested) and you're good to go.

>This HTPC would ideally stream videos to more than just the TV it's connected to. Right now i'm using my main PC to stream to a couple TVs using PS3 Media Server. That PC is meant for gaming though, and I don't like it being on 24/7 because it is an energy hog.

Oh, ok then. I do wander if it will be powerful enough to transcode more than one 1080p stream though. Well, you'll soon find out.

u/Zilveari · 1 pointr/gaming

I prefer mine

u/MainCranium · 1 pointr/gaming

Who wants to wait for a fucking video game controller to turn on and connect when I want to pause a program right now? Or I could leave an unsightly cable hanging out of my PS4 all the time for charging. My media center is pristine, I don't want dangling cables up in my shit. Not to mention I'm on my third PS4. Boo that. Roku is awesome. Way more convenient, very reliable, and super cheap. The remote for the PS3 Blu Ray remote was so awesome. I was so bummed when they didn't have something similar for the PS4.

u/Tyrien · 1 pointr/gaming

$20 "blu-ray" Remote, best investment you can get if you're anywhere close to serious about watching movies on your PS3.

u/mixmasterbru · 1 pointr/hometheater

I have an st60, whats the issue with the usb not working for files? Side note, that's a great tv for people with seemingly no technical knowledge.

From what you've said, I think your best option is buy a new hard drive and swap out the old one in that ps3 and buy a remote like this for your parents. Its quite easy to use, my folks used that for a long time, with MKVs becoming more and more prevalent, it became more annoying, they use their iphones to send it to the apple tv now (wasn't easy to teach them but they got the hang of it)

What else do they have, a computer? phones?

u/Tweakedenigma · 1 pointr/gaming

If you intend to use Netflix/Crunchyroll then you should get a the PS3 remote makes it a lot easier.

Games will mostly depend on what you like to play, Infamous & Infamous II are probably my favourite PS3 games. There is also a huge selection of Classic PSone and Some PS2 game available as you are new to gaming this is a good way to play some classics and build a decent size collection for cheap.

u/Bboy486 · 1 pointr/AndroidTV

Yes but that won't be wife friendly. I was looking to this PlayStation Eye

u/darklynx4 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

ive heard those mics, they are god awful. (i mute people who use them lol)

currently the best mic for the money oddly enough is

its just not one which would attach to your headset, but its 10x better then any clip on mic for the same price.

EDIT: <- recording of the mic quality of this headtset. (i have PC360, but it has identical mic as 350 SE).
compare to your mic lol (likely lots more dead air noise, and probably picks up literally every little sound in the background while talking)

u/CrackersAndMilk · 1 pointr/arma

Yes. The best solution is a high-framerate camera (PS3Eye, does not need to be high resolution) with the IR filter removed (though honestly high-framerate is not required, but the PS3Eye is just super cheap), and making your own 3-point IR-LED or reflector clip, usually done cheapest with a baseball cap (so, buying 3 IR-LEDs either connected via battery power supply, or building a USB one (though this has strict voltage), and attaching them to 3 static points on the hat, or building something to attach them to your headset), then use a program like Freetrack or Opentrack (Opentrack is my fav) which already have software built for tracking those 3 points and translating it to movement in ARMA.
It's just as good as the TrackIR system, but way cheaper if you buy and build it all yourself.. Just takes a bit of setup time and a bit of work. There are good guides online, however, so as long as you can buy the parts and follow the guide you want to follow, you can build a setup very easily.

Or if you're both really lazy and frugal, you can go with someone like these guys who pretty much do all the work for you with removing the IR filter off of PS3Eye camera, plus 3d-printing a pretty nice clip for the LEDs. They also have a modified version of opentrack to work specifically with their builds, though I'm not sure what's different about it. Still ends up being a lot cheaper than the TrackIR that does the same thing, but I would still recommend building your own if you're up for it. It's really not a hard process at all.

It works stupidly well, and makes things like flying and landing choppers and planes 100x less risky. You get a whole lot less blind spots. It's also pretty neat to be able to keep your crosshairs at one target, while looking in a different direction to watch another target.

u/hipstersloth908 · 1 pointr/oculus

At $5 per camera it's a steal at twice the price:

u/_Keo_ · 1 pointr/starcitizen

This is the current favourite due to the high frequency at which it can record.

I've used TrackNoIR with a MS Lifecam before (cheap, nasty, basic, webcam) and it worked ok'ish.

u/brocollocalypse · 1 pointr/Warthunder
u/h76CH36 · 1 pointr/hoggit

Agreed. This is the right ps3eyetoy too!

u/bbaker6212 · 1 pointr/homeautomation

The PS3 eye as he mentions below is very inexpensive and well reviewed. I just bought it for less than $10...

u/brenbread · 1 pointr/Twitch

Like others said, the C920 is a fantastic camera and a lot of streamers (myself included) use it and it everything looks great. There were some instances where it went down to $40 USD (around Black Friday).

If you want a cheap 60fps webcam the PS Eye ($10 + $2 CL Eye drivers). It looks decent for a 480p camera assuming you have good lighting.

I honestly wouldn't recommend the PS Eye unless you plan on streaming games with handcam action (rhythm games, maybe fighting?).

u/incizion · 1 pointr/EliteDangerous

Also, you can buy a used PS3 Eye for quite cheap, along with the drivers for it from Code Labratories for $3. The PS3 Eye is just about one of the best webcams you can purchase for a DIY FaceTrackNoIR rig.

u/nonSexyMexican · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I use the PSeye with this driver (the driver costs $1.99, but it's the only one I know of) and it works flawlessly for voice coms in games. I don't think you can get a better setup for $11.

u/MajorNoodles · 1 pointr/ShieldAndroidTV

I already have the remotes (Got them for $15 each). Is this the mic?

u/ObstinateHarlequin · 1 pointr/il2sturmovik

You can build your own IR headtracker for cheap (less than $50 total). You can find hardware plans here (if you don't have access to a 3d printer directly you can find people online to print it for you, or you can google around for other home built options), you can buy a PS3Eye camera on Amazon along with an IR Filter, and the OpenTrack software is free. The hardware assembly is simple enough to do with no soldering (I recommend you do solder if you know how) and the OpenTrack software is very easy to configure.

u/Nate1492 · 1 pointr/funny

29th May: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
29th May: ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection
29th May: Demon’s Souls
5th June: Rayman Origins
5th June: Coconut Dodge Revitalised

You'd pay $150 for that? I've got a used car I'd like to sell you!

$13 for Amalur

$18 for ICO+Shadows

$18 for demon souls

$16 for rayman, cheating on xbox

And coconut dodge is 99p.

And hell, if you'd buy those games at that price, I still call BS. Amalur bombed so hard it brought down a company, ICO/Shadows is very old, though good games, and Demon souls is ancient. And rayman? That's 2 + years old too. This is the type of game pack you see on Humble Bundle for $5.

And that's not even mentioning the fact you don't own these games, you are loaning them.

u/AnnieLeo · 1 pointr/rpcs3

You'll need a Blu-Ray driver that reads PS3 discs to rip the disc. There's a list on our quickstart guide.

Provided you have one, you can buy a copy at the game at or some used store you may have near you.

u/EightSix · 1 pointr/gaming

Well, I'd say that Red Dead has a better single player campaign, for sure. Actually, it has a pretty epic story. But Battlefield has a more fun online component. Red Dead's gets maybe a little boring after a few hours.

If you believe your brother is pretty hard-core, you could always turn to Demon's Souls.

u/worff · 1 pointr/gaming

Amazon is the only place that has Red Dead Redemption for 45. You can't judge any other stores based on Amazon because Amazon deals with such quantities that they can offer prices that are so retardedly low that not even distributors can match them. (Case in point: Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks has been $18 at Amazon for several months and all the main distributors to retail chains are still selling it at over $20.)

You'll also find that Amazon puts stuff on sale every single day. Something can be $23 one day and back up to $39.99 the next. For instance, Demon's Souls is now $38.95 on Amazon, and used copies, at eStarland are from $19.50 to $32.50.

But that's not really my point. Point is--eStarland offers trade-in values that blow the others out of the water, especially where classic games are concerned. And as for selection (related to gaming), eStarland has Amazon, Walmart, and Gamestop beat.

u/da_homonculus · 1 pointr/gaming

No need to import Demon's Souls. Its out today.

u/JGowan · 1 pointr/demonssouls

Check ebay for used -- best I saw was $11 but with $6 shipping, you're better off getting it NEW from Amazon for $17. If you have Amazon Prime (or you have an a friend or relative that would buy it for you that does, shipping is free. If prices are the same or slightly higher for new, I still go new every time. Best of luck in your hunt.

I have my phone with VR games and Steam with VR games on it, i have a regular controller, and I just bought the google headset. I'm just wondering which controller would be best for me to play games with while sitting at home that will allow me to reach out and grab things in the game or swing my arms or what have you.

Which also isn't true. There was the dual analog controller they released before N64 came out. The 2 dual analog controllers for PS1 that came out before dual shock. The PS2 one stayed the same as dual shock, but every button was made analog. The PS3 boomerang they tried but everyone hated, so PS3's looked the same as dualshock. Sony gets far less credit than they deserve. Move is still used thanks to PSVR

I haven't tried it in Overwatch yet (I'm still playing on PS4) but for other FPS games I use the PS3 nunchuck and rebind the keys since I much prefer an analog stick (even if it's actually digital input in this case) to WASD. Since you came from a console this might feel more comfortable for you too.

u/djaeveloplyse · 1 pointr/gaming

I've tried doing this with the Playstation 3 Move Navigation controller, never really got it to work though.

u/mfshadow · 1 pointr/PSVR

Makes you wonder why they didn't implement the move "navigation" controller along with the PS3 moves:

u/pocketmnky · 1 pointr/PSVR

I think until Sony releases a more reliable move controller solution (one that doesn't get obscured by your head/body/chair whenever you turn around or reach down) I'm fine with controller support only.

After playing RE7 and overcoming VR sickness from smooth locomotion (RE7 does a great job darkening your peripheral vision when you turn and move quickly so that helps a lot) I'm feeling like more controller based FPS games are possible without the need for janky teleportation mechanisms.

I can almost see a future game that uses both the move controller and the DS4 controller, but not necessarily at the same time; although I can't figure out the logistics of having to set down one controller and pick up the other unless the PS4 is actively tracking the position of both so it can show you where you left them in the real world.

Didn't Sony come out with a nunchuck-like move controller attachment to give you the ability to have a navigation option along with one hand to swing a sword or something? Why can't we do that?

u/angry_spooky · 1 pointr/playstation

It’s controller from PS move generation called “PlayStation Move Navigation Controller”. I bet you can buy them everywhere. Here’s amazon link:

u/morphinapg · 1 pointr/PS4

> A requirement just means a huge waste of resources since you can't always guarantee 60fps everywhere unless you lower the graphics to the lowest capable of running 60fps in the hardest area.

Again, you're speaking from PC experience. Console development is vastly different. It's extremely easy to hit a frame rate lock goal when developing for console. Just don't ever add anything to your game that drops you below that goal. Since you know the hardware, it's incredibly easy to achieve this.

>You also misunderstand my criticism of the Move. The tracking is indeed quality, but there's no movement options on it. No d-pad, no analog stick, you have to hold a DS4 in one hand that defeats the point of immersive tracking wands. It also only has one button on the rear making grip mechanics like on the Touch very difficult.

The PS Move has navigation controllers.

u/dnekuen · 1 pointr/PSVR

There is a Playstation Move Nav controller. I'm not sure if it's used, but i'm guessing devs can support it if they want.

u/comicidiot · 1 pointr/PSVR

With the navigation controller? Maybe one illuminated bubble wand and in the other hand the navigation controller. Back when PS Move was released on PS3 this is how you moved, some accessories like the Sharpshooter had a space for it as well.

I however haven't heard any news on whether or not Sony is reviving the Navigation controller. I have two of each, two bubbles and two nav-cons. The sharpshooter and the pistol. Really looking forward to bringing my PS Move accessories out of storage.

^^^And ^^^my ^^^mom ^^^wanted ^^^to ^^^get ^^^rid ^^^of ^^^them ^^^years ^^^ago.

u/ilmale · 1 pointr/PSVR

> split DS4 is what we really need

You mean the Ps3 navigator controller ?

u/yellow_trash · 1 pointr/SteamController

The ps3 has a navigation controller that connects via Bluetooth and is programmable on steam. I'd imagine it would be a good set up with mouse that you're looking for.

u/checo70x7 · 1 pointr/Borderlands

Nice, I've heard of people using a playstation move nav controller and mouse before and that has always intrigued me.

u/DrakonLitshed · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

You can use it on all games that don't require motion controls like ARMS. As long as it uses traditional controls like Zelda you can use the pro controller.

For me i know i'm going to find the joy-cons very comfortable, when i tried the PS Move i didn't like the motion control features but i immediately thought it would be really comfortable if i had just 2 of those navigation controllers i could let my arms rest comfortably at my sides/on chair arms to play.

u/djpokeboy · 1 pointr/emulation

Not that crazy, but I put a fair amount of effort into Trauma Center. It's played with the Nunchuck's analogue stick to select tools, with the pointer to control everything else. Digital keyboard felt awkward, and you can't do anything accurately with pointer on analogue.

So I bought a Bluetooth dongle and spent a day setting up SCPToolkit to connect my PSMove Navigation Controller. It worked well, until I found that the game was damn near impossible with the wiimote rotate movement bound to buttons, as it'd constantly rotate when the button was held, then rotate back when released.

So I then had to spend another day getting the controller working through Steam's controller configurator, with a toggleable control set swapping the analogue stick to control rotation, all for just two games.

I'm still unsure if the game was worth all the effort put in, but it was still damn fun!

u/chuiu · 1 pointr/pcgaming

You might want to try the PS move controller.

I was able to pair it with my PC using bluetooth. It works well but I don't use it with most games because it doesn't have enough buttons to cover what I need. But since you're getting a mouse with more buttons also it might workout for you. (my mouse only has a couple extra)

Edit: I don't know why the listed price is so ridiculously high, you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere. I only paid $18 for mine.

u/EmpoleonNorton · 1 pointr/Overwatch

If he is like me he is using the left hand of the move controller, the one with the analog stick on it. I use that + mouse. FInd it much better than KB and mouse.

u/BumbleDJ · 1 pointr/Overwatch

lol I think you're thinking about the move motion, i'm using the [move navigation] ( I use an analog stick to move around but I still aim with my mouse. I know this is unconventional but it's really comfortable. and I can press keys on my keyboard while still holding it. That's how I make it look like I'm doing both things at once

u/makeshift_euphoria · 1 pointr/HiTMAN

I use a controller for everything but aiming, since you just can't beat a mouse for accuracy.

Generally, I find 3rd person games play better with a controller (analog stick/triggers), while 1st person games play better with a keyboard and mouse (easier to look around/aim).

You can also have the best of both worlds by pairing a PS3 Navigation Controller with a mouse, like this. Use the analog stick on the navigation controller for movement, and use the mouse to look around/aim.

A gaming mouse with lots of extra buttons (e.g. Logitech G600) would be ideal for this kind of setup.

u/few23 · 1 pointr/PSVR
u/VortexPlays · 1 pointr/oculus

My guess would be: Optical handtracking combined with a PS Move Navigation-Controller-like device for movement.

Wouldn't it be much more effective to spend the money on malaria nets or something instead? Let's just assume that a PlayStation 3 costs $250, a malaria net costs $5, and 1 in every 400 malaria nets saves a life. Then with a $2,000 donation, you could either buy eight PS3s, or save one life.

Is the choice obvious?

160 GB PS3 slim is $250.

u/Hear_That_TM05 · 1 pointr/CFB

It was actually slightly higher than 100, but not by much.

I bought a used version of this PS3 (the $110 dollar one that is fufilled by Amazon). It had some holiday deal thing automatically applied that took like 27 or 28 dollars off of it. Since it is fufilled by Amazon, I got free shipping with Amazon Prime.

Then, I got a used copy of NCAA 14 that was listed at 25 dollars and cheap shipping.

With taxes and whatnot it ended up being somewhere around 115 dollars.

It's not fucking false. You're telling me that every single person in the 90s had one? That's idiotic. 200 us dollars back then is the same as 350 now. Right now, you can get the most expensive console for $250 which leaves $100 for 3 games, easy. It's not like $150 is a trivial amount of money for a kid's toy even today.

Pick one and use that instead of a pc, just kidding, but seriously listen servers are awful for any kind of pvp game especially fps games, I have no problem with matchmaking on dedis like csgo, but fuck me if I have to play cod again on listen servers. (Oh and I know you said dedis+ matchmaking, but separating an already small userbase is never a good idea)

I'm curious though, why do you want matchmaking? It can't be the party system because that works on dedis as well, it can't be that it's easier because it's not, you can easily find a server with whatever gamemode you want if you don't care about the connection which you obviously don't since you want to play on listen servers. Afraid of getting kicked by admins? True, that is a problem, but that can easily get fixed by actually using the favorites feature that every good server browser have.

u/el_fuego91 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Well I got mine from a friend so I didn't pay much, but I've seen some on CL for for around 200 to 230. If you feel more comfortable with Amazon, their warehouse is selling some for $231 like-new. Most likely the box was dented, but no damage done to anything inside. I've bought a ton of stuff from Amazon Warehouse and everything was always in great condition. On the off chance it isn't, returns are easy.

u/ChrisF79 · 1 pointr/PS3

Amazon has the base system for $249 with free shipping. I'm in a 6% sales tax state so for me, that would save $15 versus buying it locally at Wal Mart or somewhere like that.

u/yaktoast · 1 pointr/playstation

Most games don't support Keyboard and Mouse on PS3 natively, Unreal Tournament 3 does but not many do. You can get converters and specially made controllers to make things easier though.

u/elo228 · 1 pointr/gaming

there is adaptors that you can buy, most people don't like them, and the truth is that it only takes a few days to start getting good with a controller.

I was never as good with a K/M when I used to play CS 1.6, and i played it for a long time.

But Check this adapter out it has some pretty good reviews and for the price of a controller it might be the thing just for you.

u/benesgarage · 1 pointr/PS4

This specifically would have to be supported by the game developers. There are also PS3 keyboard and mouse adapters that work pretty well, allowing you to use it on any game.

Here's an example:

No news on PS4 yet though.

u/IronOxide42 · 1 pointr/truegaming

In regards to the keyboard/mouse, I'll just leave this here

u/lisabadcat · 1 pointr/gaming

I bought one of these for the PS3. It works well, but I still prefer the controller on the PS3. Plus, you can't switch between this and a regular controller without pausing, disconnecting, reconnecting the other device like you can on PC.

u/IAmA_Kitty_AMA · 1 pointr/gaming

There are third party accessories that allow keyboard and mouse control over consoles. I don't know if they're banned at the competitive level, but I imagine that people use them.

OMG.. yes it does :

u/chupchap · 1 pointr/truegaming

The debate shouldn't be about console vs PC as PS3 does support keyboard and mouse combo provided the developer has added the code for the same. I think Unreal Tournament and CS:GO support them from what I have heard and then there are peripherals like this and this for people who are more comfortable with a mouse.

u/loldongslol · 1 pointr/tf2

Have you seen this or this? I haven't tried them personally, but have actually heard some good things about both. Obviously it's not a perfect substitute, though.

u/Meallus · 1 pointr/gaming

I know for a fact there is a way to do this though iirc the article about it said you would probably get better results with a controller since the PS3 version is designed for use with a gamepad. I'll see if I can dig up that article, if I can I'll edit this and post the link.

Edit: Found a couple of threads about it on COD forums and most of them agree that the "best" way to do this is use one of these. Heres hoping that helps!

u/BMOIAM · 1 pointr/AskGames
u/TwoScoopsofDestroyer · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Not officially, anyway. still has the limitations of controller, but you can set the joystick sensitivity up to full at least, for the fastest 360 possible without losing all aiming capability.

u/Shock900 · 1 pointr/gaming

I highly doubt (in fact I'm almost positive) that next-gen console owners won't be able to play games with them without 3rd party hardware and software. Adding a feature like accepting a keyboard and mouse as a controller would make it unfair for the other console players who use and are used to controllers. It would be a terrible move by either Microsoft or Sony, therefore they won't do it.

u/PhlyDaily · 1 pointr/Warthunder

Does anyone know how this will work? Will ps4 players be able to play with pc players. One of my main concerns is that ps4 players won't be able to keep up with mouse users with the ps4 controller. The only way possible if the ps4 has something like this
Or what about FRB? Any thoughts guys?

Edit- After re reading the article, this quote makes me feel like they will be separate, "PC-version."

u/SkorcherX · 1 pointr/PS3

u/temnota · 1 pointr/gaming

They purposely don't want you to do it because it would unbalance the game. You can buy a converter like this though

u/DankidyDan2521 · 1 pointr/metalgearsolid

There exists a gaming mouse for PS3, pretty sure it has a gamepad too, and is compatible with any FPS/TPS.

u/DGPantherX · 1 pointr/Rockband

IIRC, you can always find a cheap MIDI kit and use the RB3 MIDI Pro Adapter. I managed to find a kit all too similar to the ION Drum Rocker for only $50! And although it didn't have a bass pedal, I managed to create my own using a cymbal pad as well as the structure used to hold up the Guitar Hero drum kit absolutely free. If the kit doesn't work at first, you can make it work for sure using Bome's MIDI Translator too.

u/aGooseChase · 1 pointr/Rockband
u/Pandos636 · 1 pointr/Rockband

I'm not on RB4 yet, so someone correct me if my info is outdated. That drum should work just fine. The connector you need is the Rockband MIDI Pro-Adapter found Here for X-box and Here for Playstation. It's pretty much impossible to find the adapter other than online. In addition you will need to purchase a short MIDI to MIDI cable as seen here (these are pretty easy to find at any music store, but you'll pay the usual 400% markup). Total cost is somewhere around $25-$45 to get you up and running.

u/sofawall · 1 pointr/Music

Any midi kit will work. I got one preowned for about 400 CAD, new is obviously much more expensive. Honestly, I got it for practicing drums quietly (or at least more quietly than acoustic), it working with Rock Band was a bonus. PS3 and PS4 both work using the PS3 Pro Midi adapter.

Llama is a pain in the ass, but I've always been a glutton for punishment in rhythm games. Again, I'm "that guy" who prefers playing for challenge and mechanical proficiency over simply songs that are good to listen to. Songs that are good and fun are definitely my most played, though, with Rush and Iron Maiden being easily my most played artists on Rock Band.

I've also been fooling around with a PC game by the name of Phase Shift lately. The aforementioned Midi Adapter and my PS3 GH guitar worked out of the box with it, and Custom Creators Collective has a ton of good customs for Rock Band, plus a tool for converting from RB format to Phase Shift format. I've been having a ton of fun with Domino the Destitute by Coheed and Cambria, for an example of an easier song that I enjoy playing..

u/hwill_hweeton · 1 pointr/Rockband

Thanks, your reply is super helpful.

So would you say that the gameplay on ps4 is actually worse due to the roll limit (Seems many users have issues with other bugs as well)?

>there's also a user-made adapter that doesn't suffer from the roll limit. Another $50 if you end up needing it.

I assume you are talking about this. Would that be a replacement for the adapter I would need anyway? Meaning I should buy that even if I go with a ps3, to give me the option to roll limitless on a ps4 in the future.

Since the DM6 only has a USB port, you'd have to connect it first to a computer. Then use a usb to midi converter to go from your computer to the midi pro adapter: Then plug the pro adapter into the PS4.

Not sure what the software you need for the computer. Some sort of basic midi conversion thing, I guess.

I spent $40 on a bottom of the line Madcatz stick and then I hit up Paradise Arcade for a Seimitsu stick and buttons for about $60. It was super easy to put together and I ended up with the rough equivalent of a TE with custom colors for the same price.

u/Liquid_Otacon · 1 pointr/FLCL

What kind of fight stick do you have? I was doing the same thing not too long ago and found some templates for sticks. I still have the raw templates saved for this one. I gutted the stock parts and replaced them all with Sanwas

u/Yarcofin · 1 pointr/Skullgirls

Most people say anything under $60 isn't worth considering because some component will break within the first couple months. The only exception is the WWE All Stars Brawl stick (I don't know what makes it different and it doesn't seem to have Sanwa parts, which is the main thing you're looking for in a stick.)

If you can't drop $100 on a fightstick or not sure if you will be playing fighting games in a month or two, I would stick with a wired Xbox 360 controller. I upgraded from an Xbox controller to a fightstick 2 weeks ago and honestly it hasn't upped my game or made anything easier, in fact I am probably still a bit worse.

u/Ozymil · 1 pointr/Games

If you're looking for a reliable, cheap fightstick check out this stick on Amazon. It's $45 if you've got Prime. A decent stick for a good price, and you can change the faceplate.

u/AmuseDeath · 1 pointr/SF4

And you can get an even cheaper deal on certain sticks as well.

The point here is that yes, you can dual mod, but there are factors to look at: cost of the mod, knowing how to do it, having soldering equipment, time, etc. Or you can probably pay less to get a simple stick or some more to get a quality one.

u/Tierehl · 1 pointr/Fighters

Your other option is what I did, buy a MadCatz Brawlstick, and swap it Sanwa buttons and a joystick from FocusAttack and it will end up costing you around $80 depending on what system you buy it for and when you buy it (I assumed for PS3) and you will have a tournament ready fightstick.
PS: I changed the artwork for it, I didn't want The Rock and Triple H looking at me when I'm trying to mash DPs.

u/rockstarfruitpunch · 1 pointr/Games

I've got both a 360 and a PS3 Madcatz stick, and both work fine on my PC's. They're standard USB connections that windows recognises straight away. Hell, my Raspberry Pi recognised my PS3 stick straight away!

The reason why you're no longer seeing cheap SE sticks is because they are no longer manufactured, making them rare items.

Cheap SE sticks that can still be found for cheap (unless people have caught on) are the WWE Brawl sticks. Same as the Street Fighter SE sticks, but with WWE branding.

There is a difference between TE and SE sticks. SE sticks do not come with Sanwa parts by default - you will have to swap them out (easy to do, thank god!). TE sticks are bigger, heavier and come with the quality Sanwa parts. Saying that, it took a year for my SE stick buttons to die - your mileage may vary as I racked up about 300 hours on SF4 by then.

Qanba also do great sticks.

Also, whenever there is a big tournament happening, there will usually be a discount code advertised on the streams for cheaper sticks.

Here's the PS3 Brawl stick I have (I'm assuming you're american - I'm british):

Notice the PS3 one is cheaper - if you're only playing on PC, get the PS3 version.
Also do a google on the WWE Brawl stick, and see what the folks on youtube and are saying about it. (ignore the folk who don't know that it's a better SF4 SE Stick).

If you do go for the stick, I would recommend swapping out the buttons for Sanwa parts.

Apparently some older PC's/Laptops might need motioninjoy for ps3 sticks to work. If you're using windows xp, and you get the 360 version, you will need to download the xbox 360 controller drivers. Windows Vista and up, you're fine.

u/RelentlessNoodle · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

That kind of control scheme sounds pretty awkward to me, but if it works why not go with it? The reason people buy those controllers I linked you is because they can't stand the D-Pad/analogue stick of the xbox controller, and $20 is a pretty cheap investment.

The cheapest stick I could find is this:

You could always replace the faceplate to make it more appealing. That's essentially the same one I bought when I started, but a newer version (and with WWE art instead of street fighter). Make sure to do some research and make sure that it works on PC before you pull the trigger.

u/GeoffPortnoy · 1 pointr/3DS

If you have no other method of playing it, go for it. If you have a 360 or PS3, it'd be better to go for the HD Collection, which is probably the best overall (and only $24 on amazon right now!)

u/urbanplowboy · 1 pointr/PS3

Here are my favorites:

  • Metal Gear Solid 4 (I'd recommend playing all the MGS games before playing 4, though. The first one is available in the PS Store, and the others are available in the HD collection.
  • Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas (If I had to choose between the two, I'd go with Fallout 3)
  • Uncharted 2 (All of them are great, but this one is the best, imo)
  • The Last of Us (obligatory)
  • GTA 5 (GTA4 is good too, but 5 blows it away)
  • Bioshock (All of them. Some people don't like 2, but I enjoyed it)

    And I'm really enjoying Spec Ops: The Line right now.

This, Rlaxoxo is correct. With CL-Eye Test you can adjust the brightness and contrast wayyyyy down. You can also push the colour into the red spectrum while bring down green and blue. I play in a room with south facing glass doors leading to a balcony and an east facing window. I rarely have external light issues.

By the way, I picked up one of the old PS 3 EYE (this exact model):*Version*=1&*entries*=0

I didn't have to remove the IR filter (don't know if it even has one). I tested with IR diodes before meddling with it and it works. Now I have a webcam if required and an IR tracking solution that works like a dream. Unless you're sitting in the Sun, you shouldn't have too much trouble.

By the way, if your IR diodes are a little patchy (not too bright and easily lost in Opentrack (don't use the other programs -they're wank by comparison - I've tried them), then switch out the diode(s) which seem weaker with other diodes. There's a myth that you need a specific diode, as long as it's an IR diode it will work. The easiest solution is to get them from old IR TV/DVD/CD remote controls. Some people will have you jump through a whole ritual to get this working, my advice - test at every stage to see if a step is skipable. Example:

1: Get diodes & wire in series to USB
2: Run camera with CL-Eye Test program
Can you see the lights brightly and adjust everything else until it's in shadow? If yes then you only have to set up Opentrack and you're done

u/P2PosTeD · 0 pointsr/gaming

Did you forget the Eye, sure it wasn't HD but lets be real the Kinnect was no ground breaker or innovation. Cable TV integration has also been done for awhile with cable cards you can buy for a PC. I don't consider it innovation that they just added that to the Xbox. Not trying to bash your post and I certainly don't look down on anyone you prefers X1 over PS4 but lets be real, innovation isn't something you can claim on X1.

Mobile devices already have cameras, so it's much easier to integrate.

maybe this adapter

Entirely worth the cost if you wanna play seriously and competitively. I'd consider one, but I'd rather save up for a PC because consoles kinda lost their allure for me.

It's supposed to be compatible with this Playstation Move Navigation Controller as well so you can keep analog foot movement, if you want.

It's no different than investing in a steering wheel for a racing game. Analog sticks just aren't very good for precision. Consoles are so similar to PCs now, they should just support M&KB by default to give players more options.

Yes without a doubt or you will lose out on a lot of the rich history of metal gear.

I mean yes it is its own storyline and all but all the characters and such bleed from one to other. You will lose a lot by not knowing them.

I would buy this baby right here and you can get them all in one shot.

MGS has always come out on PlayStation platforms first. I know the first one is on PC, and there is a remake made specifically for the GameCube but it started first on PlayStation. Xbox didn't get a version of MGS2 until the Substance releases a year or so later. Until the HD collection 3 was also exclusive to PlayStation I believe.

Back when MGS4 was announced, there were technical reasons why the game was exclusive to the PS3, and I think that still holds true today considering there is an "ultimate" HD collection for PS3 that includes MGS4 and just the normal HD collection for 360 and Vita.

Edit: For those of you curious about what collection I'm talking about, it's this one:

Its a Playstation 4 Camera, not a PS Eye.

This is a PS Eye:

I got mine on amazon. I bought two used from resellers. Even came with prime shipping. $19.99 each.

My current HTPC is my old desktop, but lets pretend its not.

My last HTPC was a Compaq CQ2024 I bought in an online auction for $150

It uses a peak of 65 watts, and thats including running the 2 harddrives that I doubt you are including in your wattage, since you would need to use an external harddrive with an additional wall wart to power it.

But just for shits and grins, lets calculate the cost of using my current HTPC. It has a 350 watt power supply. So I'm using 350 watts if I max it out.

350 watts is 8.4 kilowatts a day. Price per a kilowatt in my area is 12 cents. So it costs me roughly a $1 a day to run if I'm tweaking the tits off this thing. Which I'm not. But I digress.

Some quick googling tells me the raspberry pi uses .2 amps at 12.5 volts

This works out to 2.5 watts, 60 watts a day, or roughly 2 kilowatts a month.

I would take about 35 days and a few hours to pay for a raspberryPi, at my electric usage.

But wait, you said gaming PC didn't you? Thats RIGHT! I can game with this thing, and you can't with a raspberryPi.

PC games are on par with PS3 games, right? Most titles are transferred over nowadays.

How much wattage do one of those use?

Looks like some use as much as 380 (MORE than my HTPC), and the lowest (the super slim) uses 180 watts max.

350 (my PC) - 180 (super slim PS3) = +170 delta in wattage.

Looks like a new one is going for $275

At 170 watt/hour difference in usage (at a cost of $00.0204 per hour), I would have to game for 561 days to make up the difference in cost between my free PC that was destined for the parts bin and a PS3 Super Slim.

And thats just using nice big round numbers. Its not using a full 350 watts. Its a 65 watt CPU + another 100ish for the 2 harddrives and the video card. It might ramp to a full 200-250 if I'm actually playing a game.

I agree. But check this out.

You can try this but I prefer a controller, so I couldn't tell you if it's any good. The reviews are pretty solid though.

I was able to get a stick for cheap ( ) and added sanwa parts to it (and new artwork ). Kinda happy with it, even though I was not able to do it perfectly. But man, cheap and works well. Obviously I'm back at playing with a fightpad now.

I've been using a keyboard and mouse to pwn PS3 controller players for years now. I couldn't help myself.

I'm a PC gamer that just did this for the sake of doing it.

The madcatz Brawlstick would be a great choice for about 70$

At the moment the GTA5 500GB bundle starts at $360 (on Amazon). I'd say $269 is a price drop. 12GB systems go for $199 without a game (at Walmart). For $20 more and the price of a game you get much more storage.

So yeah, you could technically just go ahead and spend $199 on a 12GB system... but you'd eventually want to upgrade the HDD.
