    Ok im doing the unthinkable!

    Ok i have decided to get a PS3.

    What do i need?

    I know the online is ganna be fine with free WiFi.
    What about connecting to the TV, i need an HDMI cable correct?
    Do the wireless controllers need a charging station? or do they recharge with whatever comes with the system?

    Also does anyone know of another controller i could buy that has the left analog stick up more on the controller? Like the 360 one.

    Thanks for any info you have.

    only if your TV is HD and it comes with one. you can play without the HD but the graphic quality sucks then so if your TV is HD then use the HD.

    it comes with a cord to hook the controllers to the PS3. so long as they're plugged in and the PS3 is on or on stand-by, the controllers charge themselves.
    Also does anyone know of another controller i could buy that has the left analog stick up more on the controller? Like the 360 one.

    the PS3 does not gave any controllers like that.

    I was looking at some PS3 controllers on Amazon that are like the 360 ones but there not made by Sony. I was hoping someone had some reviews about them. I have read some and they seem pretty good so idk well see.

    The $299 PS3 Slim comes with an HDMI cable? Are you sure? If so that rocks!

    It's not that they come packaged into the box with the console, but more that stores are selling the two separate items together as a bundle.

    really? i was expecting them to come with the HD cable but not included the other ones. i mean wouldn't that make more sense considering practically everybody has an HD TV?

    But you see, Analog and Component (more so Analog) can be used for SD and HD TVs, where as HDMI cables can't be plugged into SD TVs, not to mention the cost.

    If you're plannig on playing shooters like Call of Duty online, then definitely get a headset. I hate when people on my team don't have them so it's near impossible to communicate with them.

    But great, decision, the PS3 is a fantastic media machine. Enjoy blu-ray, and the tons of great games that are already released. (There's a huge list of great titles upcoming too)
