I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Drat! And I Thought I Had Solved The Console War

Posted on Wednesday, January 2 @ 15:59:42 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
As a number of readers have pointed out to me, the PS3 can indeed stream video from your computer almost as well as the 360 can.

Setting it up is exactly as easy as it is on the 360, although it registers as "unknown device". The reason I thought it originally didn't work was because I was getting a permission error. When I refreshed the list of media servers, however, the error went away.

It functions almost as well as the 360 video support with the following small drawbacks:

- The fast forward function doesn't work as well.

- It ignores my folder structure, so I can't organize my media the way I want.

- About 10% of my videos that play on the 360 will not play on the PS3. If the interwebs are to be believed, it's particular Xvid formats.

Of course, all this could be fixed in a future system update, and even as is, is still a very cool feature. I'm glad to be proven wrong in this instance.
