PS3 Time Killer

So I’ve just started playing Rock Band against people online, and it’s tons of fun… Makes me look like a bit of a crazy yelling at the TV when the other person can’t even hear me, haha. It does a pretty good job of finding someone of the same skill level, or better, which is a little humbling. I have to improve my strategy I think — as you can see, on this most recent game, I played the song perfectly on expert, but lost because I timed my overdrive in the wrong places I guess.

Question for PS3 owners: If I were to get a webcam/eyetoy for it, can the video chat features talk to people other than other PS3 owners? That is, could one chat to someone who has a PC or Mac?

Anyway, I’m going to take advantage of the free evening and Caitlin and I finally have a date night after being homebound for so long, woo woo!

PS. Another question of lesser importance: If anyone reading this is a CSS expert and can tell me why my kit car site doesn’t render right in IE (I noticed it because it doesn’t render right on the PS3 either), please do… I’m terrible at that sort of thing.

    I’ve been considering buying this game but i think its just a rip off of guitar hero.
    Not quite sure whether i should wait for the new guitar hero or get this, what would you recommend?

    And to the question of whether or not a ps3 can chat to a pc or a mac: I have a ps3 and there is no way to talk to a pc/mac via the ps3 unless you use ebuddy or something similar through the ps3 browser. I know some sites like ebuddy support webcam for computers but i am yet to try it myself with my ps3.

    I like the play on Rock Band on the whole, although it’s quite a bit easier than Guitar Hero…

    The new GH sounds really good though, because I think it lets you create songs, which I expect will be a goldmine of free content — I’m definitely looking forward to it.

    Rock Band is not a ripoff of GH. Rock Band has drums and a microphone… GH is ripping off RB in the near future actually.

    Err…I hate to point this out (and perpetuate the argument), but Rock Band was developed by the team that did GHI&II, while GHIII and foreward were developed by a new team.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
