    It's a nice adapter. Well.. now, anyways. When it first came out a couple years ago it wasn't (utter crap), but over time the firmware has gotten really good.

    The great thing is that they've come out with a way that allows you to flash the adapter to whatever console you are going to use it on: PS3 or 360, so, one adapter to rule them both.

    I finally managed to buy the game. It arrived with a delay, but anyway.
    I inserted it in the PS3 and was asked to update it.. I said yes and the PS3 kept freezing.
    Solution? I said no to update the game, installed it, and then I chose yes to the update.

    Anyway, I haven't played it yet, will wait till a bit later today. :)

    I played an hour or two. It's amazing what they managed to do with a PS3. The game so far is solid. What has impressed me more in terms of gameplay is the driving part. It's more solid than the best of arcade driving games out there.
    As a game, even leaving aside the technical aspects, it appears (heh) to be miles ahead of all previous GTA games.

    I sold my copy of this game along with my PS3 and my other games with the PS3 I had, looking forward to a PC release. I didn't finish it on the PS3.

    So 5 years later and I just finished watching the credits of GTA V. Wonderful game, absolutely sublime. The ending made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I loved it. For anyone that hasn't finished it please do, it only took me a few days. Maybe a week playing lightly at first then just digging in for the last two days once I was closer to the finish line. I was doing a lot of the side quests at first but then realized I wouldn't finish the game in a timely manner if I kept on trying to do everything in one go, also the assassination missions with Lester should be saved until the end and then you can make billions (via the stock market). :)

    Will be playing GTA Online after this, but for now it's on to Battlefield V, it's story looked good, I just played the Intro but I'm going to play the game to completion starting tomorrow. I've heard it's very very short.

    Then afterward I'm thinking it's racing time with Forza Horizon 5.
