hmmmmm the blame game, devs giving up, sully something doesn't smell right, this could lead to a big treasure.......
i dunno if i could speak for the people that silently watches from the side that appreciates all the devs work and test it all out to make it better, but i can speak for myself.
I am a loyal .....firmware user, play games i always wanted and most of all have allot of fun playing (that's what we all want, to play good fun beautiful games at little or no expense, right!!), so lets lay low and see what it coming out for Christmas, okay people :-).
Games i recommend playing (if they work):
-Uncharted 1, 2 and 3
-Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City
-Final Fantasy 7 (psx burnt game, use multiman to play)
-Call of Duty 3 (don't like fps games much, but its ok)
-Bionic Commando + both PSN versions :-)
-Hokuto No Ken (Fist of The North Star)
-Castlevania lord of shadows (also play the nes, genesis and snes versions)
-Metal Gear Solid 4 (also try the ps1 version) this is the game i bought my ps3 for, i got it original :-))))))))
-Cursed Crusade (please someone get this to work
-Dark Souls (same as above)
I think that's a hand full and if you like old skool rpg's try Suikoden 2, the first game is a bit of a drag but 2 is better.
Good luck and happy playin guys :-))))
Remember, there are allot of good games that work that you can play in the meantime :-))
God bless y'all
