Aha,new version smile.gif

Just wondering,how much of a difference will it make if i connect to the net wirelessly compared to if i use a cable?

Coz ive been using wireless connection all my PS3 life,and playing games like NBA 2K9,its really tough to shoot coz there's like a 1-2 sec delay...

Using cable won't make much of a difference, if at all really.
It's just the way our glorious ISP is.

Okay,i know i might get flamed for this question but after reading the first page and also googling it,im still not too sure about lag when playing online in relation to the games region.

From what i understand,region 1 is USA, R2 is Europe and R3 is Asia.
Region type doesn't matter when it comes to running a game in single player mode as it runs on all PS3's.

But what about the issue of playing online...?
Say I want to buy the new NBA2k10 and based on previous experience with the 2k9 version,which is R2,i encountered lag issues.Would buying the game of another region help?

I know lag and stuff is because of our ISP but will buying a game of a different region aid in the lag issues?
If so,which region is recommended? Asian?

Thanks.

don't worry, i was confused also. until i kena from one of the members, haha.

the only difference the region makes is the download content.

for example, if PSN Store USA has some downloadable content for NBA2K, you will only be able to get it
IF the NBA2K you bought is R1.
for playing online, no matter which region your game is, you will still be able to connect to the country of choice.

for example, if you have LBP R3, you can choose to play on US servers or Europe servers, or even Asian servers.
correct me if i'm wrong.  blink.gif

Ohhh,okay.Thanks bro smile.gif. But then I really don't understand the big fuss about the games region if its only for downloaded content tongue.gif

I think you mean the NBA2K10: Draft Combine.

It was a hypothetical situation. ( Even though i will be getting NBA2k10 tongue.gif)
I dont think the Draft combine is worth it though...
Either way,i cant get it. No PS store account or credit ,hahaha.
