Colin McRae: Dirt Movie Clips and Screenshots (PS3, 360)

Playsyde and Xboxyde have both posted movie clips and screenshots from Colin McRae: Dirt.
"Codemasters unveils the first gameplay trailer of Colin McRae: Dirt on the 360 Marketplace. The game is several months from its June release but it already looks quite good, if not as spectacular as some of the screenshots."


Other Stuff...

Something that I've always wanted to know, but never asked. What is the Cactus League and Grapefruit League? I mean why can't they just keep it National and American leagues in Spring training?

What's up with you?
  • QOTD: Which is better, the PSP or DS?


Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!

Cactus league is teams that play in Arizona which are teams for the west and mid west. And Grapefruit are teams that play in Florida and those teams are from the east and some central teams.I think the Cubs play in Arizona this year for the first time

The Cubs have been in Mesa, AZ for spring training since 1979. It doesn't really matter where a team's from as to where it will train for the spring, as the Dodgers have trained in Florida since at least the '50's (though they're moving to AZ in a few years). Teams from the West prefer to train in AZ because it's closer for their fans and vice versa with teams from the east. The Indians are also moving to AZ in 2009 because they got a sweet stadium deal from Goodyear, AZ.
Here's an article on the history of spring training:

I used to have both, DS and PSP. I heavily prefer the PSP. But let me compare:

DS Pros: Good programming, fun platformers, innovative stylus use
DS Cons: Too small for my hands to be comfortable. Sports games suck. As do FPS.

PSP Pros: Great graphics. Customization. Amazing ability to handle music, photos, movies, internet. Great FPSs. Great sports games.
PSP Cons: Little things can break easy. Seems like most developers are putting out half-assed games for PSP. Short battery life.


PSP wins out in a major way in my book. I actually sold my DS for $120 a couple of weeks ago. I guess that's another pro for DS...the resale value.

Not a PS3 "Elite"! Gaah!

QOTD: The DS, period. Is this even a question? Any game system that can get my non-gaming wife interested is a huge plus. The fact that her grade in 'Big Brain Academy' is an A while mine is an A- keeps the competetion strong, and if all else fails there's the gloating over how my 'Brain Age' is a decade younger (21 to 31 ). I'm also a big fan of other DS games like the platformers and 'Advance Wars'. Hell, I'm even enjoying my old Final Fantasy classics on the thing from the GBA slot!

That being said, my interest in the PSP has been piqued by 'Daxter' and 'Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops'. At the price point though, I just can't fathom buying one yet.

PSP, only becuase thats what i have. There are some amazing games on it, Race Driver 2006, Winning Eleven, MLB the Show, Tiger Woods, and so forth. Since this is a sports gaming website, I would think the majority on here would think the psp is hands down winner. Add in internet (great for surfing while in bed), movies and songs (great for setting on the treadmill and watching) and downloads, the psp does it all. For the price, its an unbelievable bargain.

The Dodgers are moving from Dodgertown, in Florida, to Arizona next year.

QOTD: Tie on both imo.
