quote: I have discs that I have treated like they are made of SOLID PLATINUM (not overstating there) and they still get scratched! The fact is that DVD's, CD's, and even Blu-Ray's are EXTREMELY SCRATCH PRONE and the drives sometimes scratch them for no reason.

quote: So apparently you've never heard of a little game called Metal Gear Solid 4? You do have to install parts of some games to the hard drive. Fortunately, not for Uncharted 2 or Crack in Time (despite the load times). And nearly every damn download (demos, updates, some videos) needs to be installed. Maybe the "experts" here should stick to established facts unless they can actually quote more than a personal opinion regarding access times and HD resolutions.
quote: I'm not exactly sure how they're going to get it unbanned.
quote: The problem is that if either of these consoles were ever to get banned, both are toast
