I have 4 WU's on my PC's and my PS3 doing WU'S, the 4 show up on my stats, where does the PS3 show up at? The PS3 is super fast and does several WU's a day. I would hate to not get credit for those.

I'm not sure you get credit for those. At least I couldn't find a way to sign up so I switched it to GPU Grid. Right now I'm running Yoyo@home on it. The credit isn't as good as GPU Grid, though.

The PS3 has run WU's with credits of 750 each, my PC's credit scores aren't so good. I do allow WU's with results greater than 10MB. I know in the past 7 days I should have 5 instead of 4.

GPU Grid should average 3.5-4k per day on the PS3. Yoyo does 2-2.3k.

Good question. Call of Duty is good if you like that sort of thing, but I have to admit I originally bought mine because of the Blu-Ray capability. It was the same price as a player at the time and seemed like a better deal. I rarely play games on it.

Isn't a PS3 backwards compatable? (Plays PS2 games as well)

My understanding is that the first systems out the gate were BC, but then Sony changed the rules a bit and that's no longer the case. Mine definitely isn't.

What PS3 video game should I get my husband for Christmas?
I got my husband a PS3 for Christmas and I want to get him a game to go with it. I don't know which game, though! He has like all the Madden NFL games and several basketball games and lots of other random games, but they are all for PS2. So I am really stuck. Should I get him a game that he already has for PS2 or should I take a gamble and pick out a totally new one that he doesn't have? And if so, what game? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.


If he likes racing games Motor Storm Pacific Drift is a pretty good one, it is a blast to play online. DiRT is also not too bad, if he likes realistic rally car racing.

The NCAA Football series is always a good choice if he likes College Football, I would recommend the 2010 version (which will be out before Christmas). Of course Madden is a all time great Pro Football game and looks pretty awesome on the PS3, again I would wait for the 2010 version.

Tiger Woods is a great golfing series, there is a new version coming out Tiger Woods 10 (2010), I would wait for that version if you are going to get it. I have yet to be disappointed in a Tiger Woods game.

As for other types of games for the PS3, you could try Grand Theft Auto IV, it was pretty darn fun to play. As mentioned before the Call of Duty 4 was really fun, but you need to like WW2/First Person Shoorters to really get into it.

If he liked comics as a kid and enjoys superhero movies (superman, spiderman, fantastic 4, etc...) then Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is coming out soon. If it is even 1/2 as good as the first then it should be very fun.

To get an idea of what all is available or what will be available in the future, check out EB Games <<link>>.
