Sweet. MS and Nintendo must love this news. Cutting costs by making the European PS3 use software emulation instead of a PS2-equivalent chip for playing PS2 games, thus reducing backward compatibility.

It would have been better if none of the models had the PS2-equivalent chip. Instead, they're singling out Europe and pissing them off. Just out of principle as a European I wouldn't buy it.

If they wanted to cut costs, they should have left out the Blu-Ray from the PS3. That's at least $200 right there. Then sell an add-on for those who actually want Blu-Ray.

I'm about 15 hours into Zelda and it's getting better and better every time I play it. If you have a Wii, then I definitely recommend picking Zelda up.

I'm about 8 hours into it and I concur. At first I hated swiping my sword to attack...(still not a HUGE fan of it)...but it's become "habit" now - so I don't mind. Everything else is superb! Dare I say best Zelda yet? LTTP is close so far...I probably shouldn't say anything until I finish this...

Yeah, the controls were a little iffy at first, but now I actually feel more comfortable than I do with a regular controller.

When you get to the room with the big cannon (probably for a while), don't save and quit.

So you can go back and do side quests without having to start over? Thanks for the tip.

Is there any other reason? I'm assuming this is the "end of the game with no turning back" point?

I remember reading there was a pretty big glitch in the game...where you can get "stuck" - something like "you need to complete task X before doing task Y, but for some reason you're allowed to do Y before X, but since you didn't do X, you can't progress any further." Anyone familiar with this?

I remember when I read it (~2 months ago , before i owned the game...or a Wii...) the author said it wasn't "common" but it always wasn't "impossible" to do either...

Where I ended yesterday could have some trouble. I need an arrow to beat this guy I'm out of arrows. After it said game over do you want to try again? I said yes, but it took me straight back to the guy and you can't exit and get arrows. I had to quit playing so hopefully when I start back up I'll be able to get arrows before fighting him.

There weren't any jars or anything in the boss' lair that you could crack to re-up? Historically in (3D) Zelda games that was always the case (although in OOT, you needed special arrows to kill Ganon and there was nothing in the room to replenish them).

It's not a boss' lair. It's a bridge and shit I hope I didn't save b/c they talk about that glitch here too.

Quote:
Quite late in the game, you come to a room with a big cannon in it. You'll know it when you see it. It's not at snowpeak. If you save the game in this room and restart there, you become stuck and can never leave the room.
There's also a glitch after you cross the bridge of Eldin (after the Goron Dungeon). If you save in the area with the bridge you can also get stuck.
