    ps3s are in some proprietary format, not readable in pcs.

    To make it worse, it apparently encrypts the drive based on the specific console key. You cannot even put it in another PS3. Your only hope was to use ftp to transfer all of the stuff off it before it broke.

    Fucking dirty

    It's pretty good, actually. I got the hang of it and scored about three in a row. I can see how you would be able to add extra levels/maps with obstacles or holes, etc.

    It is well cool. It comes out the end of this month on steam, not sure how much it will be, though.

    I've just read that. I kind of feel bad for Goldhawk Interactive who are making Xenonauts, a spiritual successor to XCOM. This will really take away the shine of what they're doing.

    Fletchedit: While we're on the subject of XCOM, the entire franchise is available on Steam today for £3.05.
