So my birthday is sort of fast approaching (June 10th) and my mom has to get me a PS3 for it, cause I won a bet. Heres what I need to know; WHat do I need to know? lol. What do I need to buy with it? What comes with it? What couple of games do I HAVE To HAVE right away? Of course, I'll be getting the slim model, cause I think they only sell that now. Just throw out some things that I need to know.

If you have a HDtv you need an HDMI cable. Do Not buy one at a store the mark up is insane. Go to mycablemart.com a cable that cost 75 bucks at Best Buy will run you 6 bucks on mycablemart.

Games to get are
God of War 3
Uncharted 1 and 2
Little Big Plant

Do yourself a favor if you're going to use it for Blu-Ray and DVD play as well and pop for the $20 remote that makes it much easier to use the controls. There are things you can buy that will convert an IR signal from a Universal Remote, but frankly, it's not that much hassle to use a second remote when you want to watch a movie.

If you plan on any online gaming, a headset. If not, an HDMI cable like Matt mentioned.

As for must have games, if you like GOW, Heavenly Sword was awesome, though short.

^ yes

Games to get are
God of War 3 (Though, the first two are a must beforehand, I'd say.)
Uncharted 1 and 2
Little Big Plant
Heavenly Sword (It's really cheap now and really awesome.)
Dante's Inferno
Bioshock (Can't vouch for the 2nd one, I've heard good things.)

^^Ours was $20 at Best Buy, and we've had it for...three years? Something like that, and we've never had to change the batteries in it.

Metal gear 4 is a must, as is GTA4. I also want Batman really bad, and Little Big Planet, and tons of other things, but I'm trying to decide what two or three games will keep me entertained the longest right out front. Also, ugh they don't give you a HDMI cable? Lame. I may go to Time Warner and tell them I need another one for the DVR lol. THey just give them out willy nilly.

Why not get a HDMI cable for 3 bucks at monoprice.com? They're good.

You must get Batman:AA! God of War 3 probably as well, along with like you said MGS4 and GTA4. Good thing is you could find all of these used for cheap (except GOW3)

Damn, that's great. I may go look for one, now that I'm starting to dig into Blu Ray format more.

If you're on netflix make sure you get the PS3 DVD and activate your account so you can watch movies from your PS3. Also, you could very well use a bluetooth device if you already have one and you dont want to spend the cash on a headset.

Games to get at the moment

Batman: AA
GTA4
Raw vs Smackdown 2010
God of War 3
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

And remember to add your name to the other thread of PS3 Screen Names.

Also Game Stop is selling new releases at 50% off from now til the middle of April, so if your not getting the PS3 until June, then I suggest you start buying your games now.

lol, i'm bad at asking people for advice, cause im going against it all, but i totally don't buy anything from Gamestop. I think they suck and I'm passionate about voicing it with my dollar. I boycotted Mcdonalds for like a year and a half when they had that ad on their website where it said "A quarter Pounder? I'd hit that."

I'm not a big fan of Gamestop, either. That 50% has me pretty interested, though.

^ Allegedly, the 50% off games are limited to whats on a list of certain games, otherwise i'd be getting Halo ODST or some other game for half off. And yes, Gamestop does indeed suck. yes

Hrm. It says 50%, but they seemed to have just lowered the prices to their liking. For instance, Bayonetta for $40 and Heavenly Sword seems more costly. That things $20 everywhere here. don't know

If you enjoyed the loot hunting of Diablo back in the day, then you will LOVE Borderlands. I mean, it's got acidic revolvers and rocket launching shotguns, for Christ's sake.
