I've been disappointed with the build quality of the N95, it feels a bit cheap and plasticy, doesn't feel like it will last long - the N81 (a lower spec phone) is much much better IMO.

Here is my 2p. I had all the games at one time BITD (including a NEO GEO!!! still make them in Japan)
The game I played the most was 'Medal of Honor' for the Mac. But I only played on-line games. Just sweet. Untill the kids started plying and then the cheats :roll: Just play for fun. Its not life or death. Like here with BOTM A bit off fun :D
HD is nearly dead Blue is 'soon' to be King. If i was lucky to have a spare £££ to 'waste' then a PS3 would be my choice.
But I've got a Trimble to build so no wasting money on computer/console games.
Any body want to buy a Mac with out a harddrive or RAM :? :shock:


You might also want to know that NEO GEO games are going to become available on the PS3, they are releasing 10 games including my fave Art of Fighting 2. Spent many a pound playing that, much better than Streetfighter IMO.

Its not about the build quality of the phone, just simply the fact that
discs will be gone soon, compare what you can get on disc to say
a 8gb sd card, its only a matter of time :wink:

Given that the theoretical limit of blu-ray is 200gig a disk and tdk are currently testing 100gig disks its going to be a long time before we see and end to disks and also if they pull off the research into holographic data storage then that will be the next big thing.

Solid State is to expensive to ever replace Mechanical disks due to the manufacturing costs
