    buying PS3 december 26th

    so after a lot of debate and whatever i decided to get a PS3. im not just thinking about it or whatever, its 100%-im buying it.

    i was just wondering, because i dont keep up on any PS3 news (i should probably start though) what should i know as far as all the major games-what are must haves, when are all the good games like Killzone 2 being released, has home been givin a release date yet? what type of things can i buy from the PSN (playstation network, is that what its called?) are there downloadable movies yet? how do you buy things offline? point system like wii/360? credit card? both?

    jsut anything like what i mentioned above or anything you think i should know to take full advantage of my PS3. oh, do the controllers come with rechareable batteries or is that an aftermarket thing like with wii/360? what all does the ps3 come with? 1 controller?

    just so you all know, im planning on buying the 40gb model with no backwards compatiblity. im not interested in PS2 games, great system but i owned one for many years, and i just dont feel the need to re-buy old games.


    edit: btw, i enjoy repping people who earn it lol

    It's been a day so you might have learned info to some of the questions you asked but I know that PS3 batteries are rechargeable, and it comes with a free charger.

    If I were you, I'd look into Heavenly Sword and Resistance. I'd also look at multiplatform titles like Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty 4. And there isn't a point system. You enter your credit care online and it doesn't force you to pay extra money or anything for your content. You can use exact change.

    I heard Home is set for Q2 but not completely positive there.

    That's all I got! I don't own one, so someone who does might be more useful, but I hope I helped!


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    The controllers have a built in rechargeable battery that charges via mini-usb cable (included)

    You sign up through the PSN with a username and you can attach a credit card to it. Then you can purchase mini-games, etc. right onto your credit card.

    Their online content is solid. They have TOOONNNS of game demo's, mini games, and High-Def movie trailers. I was quite impressed.

    Resistance is a solid game...COD 4 is INSANE. There are tons of great games.

    there's a great place to start!

    Take a look at Resistance, Rachet and Clank, Uncharted, Warhawk. Heavenly Sword is a renter IMO. I think Killzone 2 comes out march or so. Also Haze looks like its going to be good(1stQ)

    You plug you PS3 controller straight into the PS3 to charge it.

    On PSN you can get add-ons for PS3 games, purchase original games available only on PSN, watch game and movie trailers, download wallpapers and themes.

    I have a 60gb and I love it.

    Or you could just get a bank account with a debit card w/ a visa or mastercard logo...

    Much easier. And, legal.

    I will say this. If you are getting bored of the Wii this quickly, the PS3 will probably do the same. Just a warning.
