MKV files currently will not play on the PlayStation3, hopefully this feature will be added in the future, but for now, there’s a simple (and free) application called mkv2vob that will convert your MKV file to an MPG2 file that will play on the PS3. You can download mkv2vob here. Just run your mkv files through mkv2vob, then copy them to a USB stick, and they should play on your PS3 just like any other compatible video file.
If you’re looking for a good quality fighting stick, but aren’t ready to take the plunge and buy anything too expensive, then this little baby is ideal. The Mayflash USB/Universal fighting stick is super responsive, supports button re-mapping and macro functions, and has a solid metal base with big rubber feet. It’s compatible with PS2, PS3, and PC (MAME anyone?), but the main thing going for it is the ridiculously low price. The only bad thing about it is that it can be a little bit noisy – but at this price, I think that’s forgivable. Even if you already own a fighting stick, then it’s probably not a bad idea to pick up a Mayflash USB Fighting Stick to use as a backup, or for when your clumsy ham fisted friends want to play. Buy one now. At this price they’ll be all gone soon.
Hori’s wonderful new arcade style fighting stick is getting insanely good reviews over at Play-Asia – and so it should. I used one on the weekend for a few hours, and am having trouble finding a reason not to buy one! It’s one of the best fighting sticks I’ve ever used.
Now this is something I didn’t expect. Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition includes a set of fully operational night vision goggles. Priced at around $150, it’s not exactly cheap – but if you look at it as buying a set of $150 night vision goggles, and getting a limited edition of Modern Warfare 2 thrown in for free, then it’s actually a pretty good deal.
