    its probably a PC monitor rather then an actual TV, as far as i know benq makes only pc monitors but i could be wrong too.

    That's right. It's an lcd monitor with hdmi, vga, & dvi inputs w/ hdcp built in. The only other options for the $350 price range were ~19"-22" 720p lcd tv's. The 2nd reason I bought a PS3 was for blu-ray, and since the ps3 apparently has an issue with displaying 1080p on 720p (effectively turning it into 480p), I decided 1080p was the only way to go if I didn't want to have to deal with all that bs. I think I made the right decision though.

    And it's not a good port, grab the PC version which should run well on the specs listed in your profile Kyle, it is the best of the lot and should be the cheapest right now.

    As for games, I'll just echo what everyone else has said prety much:

    - Burnout Paradise
    - Devil May Cry 4
    - Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction
    - Uncharted Drake's Fortune

    Those are the recent "must haves" imo and make sure you pick up Super Stardust HD from the PS Store as well. ;)

    I might get it end of the month, but the demo is ace.
    As it has been said, its the male version of Tomb Raider.

    It's in 3rd person view.

    Are there any games in the works that arn't extremely mainstream and we might have not heard about?

    Basically, beyond MGS4, FFXIII, GT5, Haze, and a handful of very sought after games, what are you most excited about?

    If you want killzone, you should try resistance fall of man 1 and 2 when it comes out. Im sure those will keep you satisfied untill Killzone2. :banana:

    Also give Heavenly Sword a rent...i bought the game i like it so much short but sweet.

    Kyle, I was curious about how you were hooking up your ps3 to a monitor.

    I bought one the other day and it should arrive soon, I know you can get a HDMI to DVI converter and plug it into your monitor, but where would the audio go?

    I have my choice between HDMI and HDMI to DVI with this monitor. I don't see any difference between either. As far the the sound goes, it has cheap speakers built in and I'm sure I could use a stereo to headphone adapter to use them, but fortunately I don't have do. I just hooked it up to my Z-5500's through the optical input. Sounds great :).

    Oh, damn, so if I was wanting to use analogue 3.5mm jacks i'd be screwed?

    Surround sound is so immersive. I enjoy my PS3 games even more with this set.

    I'm sure you could find a converter of some sort.
