Haha, I love it!

Where's the "Every faceplate collector needs these as part of their collection!" or other flagrant claims? The listing reads as if you're seething. Hehe!

Ban shampoo, demand real poo.

The COD2 faceplates are official, they just aren't made by Microsoft. Still waiting for mine, as long as it's structurally strong, I might buy a couple of them and paint them.

They're really not Tach, how can they be 'official' yet not made by MS? Surely that's the point of 'official'?

I looked at pictures of the official ones that were handed out as promo items, and they are infinitely better quality than these. Also, on the official ones, the picture on the front has been printed at a very high quality and at some ridiculous resolution. These ones may as well have been scribbled on by a 3 year old.

Maybe i'm just being a snob, who knows, it's all objective in the end.

My Fake E305 faceplate is kind of like that, it looks like a big water transfer like you used to get on Airfix kits, so it's not quite straight and skuffed on the edge, but from a distance it looks fine!

SNOB!

I removed the 'not official...' bit on the listing anyway, in the hope of duping some poor schmoe into buying it! Hehehe!

Well it can't be any worse than the HK fake COD2 faceplates, they must have been cheap mass produced promo items seperate to the "nice" promo faceplates.

Ahhhhh, the seedy underbelly of faceplate production.

It still amazes me that no one has managed to make or retail a good looking faceplate. The MS ones are shite, as are the Joytech ones. It seems the only decent ones are the promo's. God knows why they don't just sell them...

You can buy the Halo 3 one in a few weeks for a tenner from the Bungie website.

Sorry didn't see this first time.

They are licenced by Microsoft, not made by them, the E3 ones were made by Madcatz I believe but for Microsoft.

I got mine this morning from the post office, I thought they were alright, yeah the print quality is a bit shit on the COD2 one, but from a distance it look alright.

Game are doing Oblivion (PC) for 19.99 and King Kong (360) for 14.99 pre-owned this week, online and in-store.

I might pick up King Kong seeing as it's so cheap, I'm not expecting much though.

I kinda enjoyed King Kong to be honest (it came bundled with my 360). Some of the set-pieces are fantastic plus it's cheap and easy gamerpoints for those interested!

Ooops... replying to my own posts here!

Anyway, if you register your PSP here or just update your details if you are already a member, you get a free UMD holder thingy from those *cough* lovely people at Sony!

Yeah, I registered so I could download the Wipeout stuff and Loco Roco demo, and they sent me one (plus a strap, woo!). Wasn't even aware they would, but its bloody handy and quite sturdy.

Cool! I need one of those!

In the King Kong instruction manual I love the way everyone gets their character model displayed except Jack, the main character, who just gets a picture of a hand and a gun!

By the by, if you have a japanese PSP you can still register for the freebies and downloads by substituting the SF/FJ at the start of the serial number with SB and choosing model number PSP-1003.

Gameplay have a sale on this weekend, starting from today.

I just had a look and it's rather a underwhelming sale really. The selection of games they have are mostly games that haven't sold very well anyway and they've only really slashed the prices of a couple of Xbox games really. Far Cry Instincts 4.99? Meh, i'll leave it thanks. They don't even have any GC games in the Nintendo section!

Here's a couple of others people might be interested in:

Me & My Katamari - PSP - 19.99

Oblivion - PC - 14.99

Koloom - PSP - 9.99
