    LOL

    Thanks mate. Be happy to buy you a few rounds at the next TOG get together :D (I hope there will be an interstate one soon!)

    As for the Sig I would be more than happy with one that had the TOG logo on it, a dog theme (got any cool pictures of a dog holding a game controller? :) ) and my name / quote.

    Many thanks in advance for this!

    Hey just as another aside, I noticed that on Click's Sig he has various "Squad" names for the games he plays. Anyone think a "squad" name for us TOG console junkies would be a good idea?


    ($10 says that if Click wants a squad name it will be "The Burnouts" or something Burnout related ;) )

    We need a countdown to Cadders return. Then we must celebrate on that day with a Burnout marathon! :D

    George, you got a copy yet?

    Done! I just pasted a link to a countdown script I found on the 'net. (it'll probably violate .sig size guidelines...)
    Based on "20-25 working days from receipt", I've gone conservative and worked on 25 working days. I based it on me getting it about 10am (a guess).
    Anyone else know a better script that will put the countdown in my sig? :D

    You're on! :bigthumbsup:

    No. I still haven't finished GTA4 yet. Work and kids seem to be getting in the way. One will have to go :)

    But, for the sake of the team i'll go and get it tonight. At least i'll can say i've got it.

    Who says peer pressure is dead :)

    /cheer George

    Cheapest I have found it is $20 (But I think that is only Harvey Norman South East QLD stores.)

    JB Hi Fi has it for $49 in latest catalogue I think.

    18 days + to go Cadder! Damn dude I am as edgey as you about your console.

    Brought it and i'm on 6% with 1 race left to finish the D licence. It was $59 in JB-HI or $54 for a pre-owned one.

    Now here's a thing. I seen a pre-owned copy of rainbow six vegas for $34, so i picked up a copy, only to find it was a 360 version. When I looked for the PS3 version it was $54. Now I did a bit of price checking and all the 360 pre-owned games were cheaper than the PS3 ones.

    This was in the J B-HIFI in pitt street Sydney. Are the others like that?


    Apart from all that. Pretty nifty game. :)

    Will have to wait for internet at home. I'm moving all the family to Abu Dhabi in a few months so I didn't want to get into a contract.
    Hopefully the ping isn't too high from there :)
