NEWS: sounds like Sony's discontinuing the 80GB soon, which would be the last one with backwards compability. And GTA IV is pushed to April due to PS3 issues.

on the shelves

01/22: Burnout Paradise (The W at Amazon) (Stats): 9.0ish reviews everywhere. The big advancement is open-world layout; instead of going menu to menu to choose races, you drive to the intersections where they're happening. 120 events are accessible from the world go. The races themselves don't follow tracks or paths - you start in point A, the finish line is point B, and you zoom thru town anyway you want in between. Downside is you can't immediately retry a race if you've failed (because you've got to drive back to the start and you're at the finish), a map of the city only appears on the pause screen and it takes a little longer to get a race going when you have to drive around town to get to it. PS3 has slightly better visuals (!) though only X360 allows you to put your own songs in the game.

I got to play some of Ratchet and Clank the other day at a friend's house, and it looked so visually stunning to me. The gameplay was deriviative but still engaging. It really made me want a PS3 something fierce I must admit.

That Oasis set for Rock Band would be a hard thing to pass up...if I had a PS3 and Rock Band.

Finally. Watched an Epic Mickey playthrough on gamespot and they said you need 3 run throughs to get everything.
