Played COD MW2, and man its just awesome. Without doubt the best in the series. Well, couldn't play online but will try it soon.
T.D.A are you Brich45 on youtube?
ohh and tnx for the vid.
Played Assassins Creed 2 yesterday for an hour. The game has more to offer than its predecessor. It was fun running on rooftops and killing guards. By the way, the story this time seems to have more mature-like contents.
I feel lonely...I finally hit over 100 games in my possession...haha.
is this really true?
I mean, PS2 officially being launched in Brazil is odd in and of itself(at least from the viewpoint of someone in the US), but the prices are crazy. R$799 or USD$465 for the console and R$199 or USD$115 for games?!?!
It would probably be cheaper to fly to Miami, buy a PS2 and some games, fly back than it is to buy the equivalent amount there.

Yup, it is. ^^ Although you can find it everywhere for r$400 (less than $200) now, modded.
We do have a high import tax for videogames - 70% over the price + shipping, but well, not even if the tax was over 200% it would cost that much in the end. Sony is greedy, ridiculous, and is just saying "ok, now you have the official console and an official reason to pirate stuff and prove we were right.".

yeah, that's the sad reality.
The main problem are the taxes, which are extremely high here, something about 60% of the full price plus 18% from others minor taxes.
But Sony isn't exactly using the brain about it: nowadays you can get a PS2 for about R$ 399(USD$230) with ease. Granted, this is far from a good price, but when compared with the official price, it's a bliss.
As for the games, well, many people I know will keep buying them on international shops like www.estarland.com, including myself. By buying on these shops, at least we can get a reasonable price(almost all of my PS3 games were bought on estarland), there's no point on buying them here on Brazil...
Any PS3 Tekken 6 players here? I'd like to take some time out of ranking matches where people insist on spamming and rushing me down with low hits and nailing me to the wall.
To those that have played Modern Warfare 2, what's your highest kill streak?
Also have anyone cleared the whole Spec Ops campaign on veteran? It's quite a challenge.
