Is the PS3 version better for DAII? I don't see why they would run out of PS3 versions while there seems to be a lot of XBOX versions left.


IDK if there is one that is better, I just noticed that they have a lower stock of PS3 at most stores.

For what it's worth, Lens of Truth's Head2Head compared the two versions and concluded that overall its a tie between them:

This makes me want to not even play it.


Same here. Although there are fixes out there and plenty of people can play the game, I don't feel like even going through possibly getting this issue. Plus I don't think I have the HDD space for it.

It's actually an old known issue, just uninstall when you can leave it on for an hour or two

You guys are only good so far because you haven't tried to uninstall the game. When you try to uninstall, the system will hang and the uninstall process will corrupt your hard drive. I am certain of this because I bought the game for $20 during Amazon's black friday sales.

However, you can still luck out like me and not have to completely reformat your hard drive. If you go into maintenance mode and choose one of the "clean up options" then it will just clean up all of the corrupted files and the rest of your hard drive will be fine.

Update: It is Safe Mode, then Option 3


Thanks for the heads up. Fortunately I'm still sitting on close to 400gb free as I plopped a 640 Scorpio Blue in my PS3 a couple years back, so I'll probably just let the data sit and not even touch it and risk any issues. But I will copy this down in a note to myself in the unlikely event I do ever need to reclaim that space.

I did the gamer unlock deal since I am tired of buying the individual mags. I got my free copy and used the coupons out of it today
Grabbed R3, Dragon age II, deadliest warrior, and SSX. Came to 54.96(not including the unlock) out the door. My family has been wanting SSX since it came out so I did not feel like waiting.

YMMW word of warning. I got Resistance 3 (and DA2 even though I may never play it) and as I was checking out, someone came by and told the cashier to make sure that I was Unlocked because the coupons wouldn't work without that. I don't believe she was right, but it might be a manager override. Luckily, I am Unlocked so it makes no difference to me, but just for anyone else who is not.

Don't push bad info please, check back of coupons.

I am well aware of what the coupon says. I even told the cashier I didn't think that person (a BB employee in the Games section) was right either and pointed out the wording on the coupon. He shrugged and said that was the first he heard of it too. I had no reason to push the issue because I was Unlocked and I wanted to go other places too. If you don't want to believe me, feel free, but what happened was real and may easily happen to anyone else.

Btw, you do know what YMMV means, right? I'm going to assume you do.

She's not right. You can buy the magazine in store and use the coupons whether you're unlocked or not. You apparently just got a misinformed employee.

I picked up resistance 3 this week. Should I play resistance 1 and 2 before I play the third?

You dont need to but I would say yes! Theres alot of backstory in the first 2 games in terms of Chimera and the world that Id reccommend playing through but I think R3 made things accessible enough that you could still understand things w/o playing them. If you ever want to play R1 though you need to play it first as it will appear like a terrible game if you play them backwards. Its a launch PS3 game and really shows its age now. The sequels improved upon it immensely in terms of graphics and controls

tried to play the first 2 again, and good lord have they aged poorly. resistance 1 is nigh unplayable to me, just boring as can be. it almost seems like a last gen game given an HD makeover. resistance 2 was better, but i definitely see why so many fans dislike it. I got bored a couple hours in as well, and just stopped playing. Resistance 3 is fun, albeit glitchy, dated, and certainly not AAA. I find it odd how most of it's problems aren't really gameplay related. it has mediocre graphics, horrid sound delay that makes using a headset worthless, and the install alone took at least 40 minutes, not to mention the headache that i am sure to get when i try to uninstall it. Also, there were quite a few times where i had to quit a level because it broke itself and wouldn't continue the game :/ . all in all, worth no more than 10$, if only for an entertaining and relatively lengthy campaign.

Interesting take on the game,i thought i'd heard its actually a short campaign,but i just started so i really don't know.

R3 is worth 10 bucks, but I agree that the first Resistance is garbage now. 2 is kind of cartoony graphics wise. Was considering the new Vita Resistance game, but think I'll wait until it hits 20 bucks.

Strangely enough, at my preferred store, they had a handful of PS3 copies, but none for the 360. Kinda upsetting as it was the 360 version I wanted, but I didnt (dont) have the time to go to a different store so I got the PS3 version; even though I have Origins and Awakenings for the 360 (but in true CAG fashion, I *just* got these from Kmart).


Ya but the thing is the PS3 version is literally not in the system anymore. It doesn't come up when they do a search at all. The only way he could do a look up was when i brought the tag over for him to manually type the SKU number in. searching by name only brought up the 360 version. Thanks @ Kimb22 for putting the sku locator up since looking on the site gives no results. I find it strange. Makes me wonder if theyre doing a GOTY version soon

BTW i had a question kinda related to this. For the original Dragon age. That GOTY version they released with all the DLC: does that come with it on the disk, or a stupid code? I remember when i bougth the regular game the stone prisoner was a code. If they have all the DLC on just a disc i may buy that since i hate dealing with DLC junk. Im asking for the 360 version, but im curious about the PS3 as well.

all the dlc on the DA Ultimate Edition is on the disk. Its been a while since I opened mine but I cant recall if the armor was included as a code.(or if it was even offered at all with the UE). BTW its on disk for both versions

Well you could have bought them for $10 and $5, then sold them for 20 and 15. Might as well make use of your coupons and make a little profit for the cause.

I had no problems with R3, sure it wasn't as polished as MW3 or Gears but it was more fun than all three of them. There were some minor issues but nothing game breaking. I played through it a few times and played through the co-op as well.

Can somebody help me out here. I know this isnt the place to ask but I am confused and I need help. I was able to get in contact with @Gamer (Keep in mind I signed up in MARCH!) After I signed up they said it would be about 4 - 6 weeks for them to send me my magazine and coupons. (This was in March.) I waited and waited I didnt get anything. So I question them about it. What do they do? Suspend my account because they thought I wanted to cancel. WRONG! I wanted my magazine. I finally get my subscription changed from digital copy to an actual magazine. Now they are telling me I can't get a magazine until mid-late July because it is going to take another 4-6 weeks to send me a magazine. Really? I signed up in March it is almost July and I have not recieved a single coupon or magazine. To compensate they add an extra 2 months to mu subscription. March, April, May, June. That is almost 4 months. Now I am going to miss out on Resistance 3 and Soul Calibur 5 because of their screw up and our Best Buy doesn't carry their own magazine so no luck their either. Can somebody help me out here or give me some advice. Thanks.
