The only reason I haven't been on lately is because of my new setup. I dedicated a room in our apartment for games, but it's too far from the router to connect directly, and I refuse to pay $100 for M$'s wireless adapter. I might break down and do it anyway, because I miss playing NHL 09 against/with you guys.

I figured out the PS3 setup problem afterall. Apparently my TV has issues with the HDMI handshake with the ps3, so I got the HD component cables, and it works without a hitch...and looks just as good.

You can get a third party wireless ethernet bridge for your xbox. I think they are only like $30 or so.

Glad to see you're on PSN now. My name is 'STLJA' on the network, shocking, I know... Shoot me an add.

...also, now that you are a PS3 owner, you're required to own the following amazing games...

Killzone 2
MLB 09: The Show
Little Big PLanet
MGS
Street Fighter IV
Uncharted

One of the reasons I bought the PS3 was for MLB 09...that game is amazing. Plus, my girlfriend wanted a BluRay player, so that was my excuse. Actually, even better, she funded the whole operation. :lol: She picked up Little Big Planet, but I haven't messed with it yet.

I'll add you! Do you have MLB 09?

Wow! if you can recommend one, let me know. I have tried a two other usb wireless bridges, but on one the USB plug wasn't long enough to fit in the back port. On the other, it just didn't work.

Little Big Planet is one of the best games ever.

Yes, I have MLB 09... We should play sometime.

It doesn't connect via USB at all, it's a wireless ethernet bridge. It basically acts as a wireless cord. One end plugs into the ethernet jack on your 360 and the other end plugs into your wireless router and it just shoots the data between the two points.

I don't actually use one so I'm not sure which is the best, but do a search and you should be able to find something.
