    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.
    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)

    i seriously think they should include the HD cables and not the other ones. i mean practically everybody has an HD tv so it just makes more sense and it would make a bit more money too in my opinion.

    Ya know whats funny? Im ganna praise sony here. God i cant believe im ganna do this, I HATE SONY! But i have to do it.

    I dont mind getting the HDMI cables seprate. I went into this thinking i want an HD console. So i was ganna go get the one with the, arguably but my opinion non the less, best software library. So i was ganna go get me a 360.

    Then i started really looking into it. $100 for a god damn wireless adapter? Um PS3 has it for free. Put that on top of the $50 a year for Live, even though i already knew this. Oh and the incredable failure rate and i was all like **** M$.

    I dont care about Blue ray, i wont use it. I get a gaming machine to ya know, play games. But its free so no biggy lol.

    About the Library. I HATE console FPS's. Well kinda. I like anything with good RPG elements, even an FPS so well see what its got to offer. I dont do console FPS online against other players because i needs my mouse and keyboard. So i play those on my PC.

    My first 2 games im looking at are Infamous and Marvel Ultamite Alliance 2.

    What are some other good Action RPG's? I already got Fallout 3 on PC. I also like Co-op online stuff. Like Left 4 Dead. Already got that on PC too. Part of the reason i didnt mind not getting a 360, i get most of the games on PC anyways.

    Thanks again. Im really trying to like PS3 fans now that im ganna be getting one lol. being a Wii fan its been tough but im trying. I really am...:yesnod:

    Valkryia Chronices and Folklore are two very good RPGs. Valkyria is more of a tactical RPG, whereas Folkore is more of a traditional type. I honestly just purchased Valkyria and haven't really gotten too far into it yet, but I'm impressed with the battle system and the backstory.

    Action RPG? I know a great one. A little game by the name of the Elder Scrolls Oblivion. In fact, it's one of the best RPG's I've ever played. If you're really a fan of the genre, it would suit you perfectly.

    the best strategy RPG with a funny as all hell storyline is Disgaea 3. and you don't need to play the first 2 to understand the plot either.(though you won't know some characters during the afterstory)

    and a good co-op game is RE5. you mentioned you like L4D so its definately worth getting.

    oh and a must for the PS3 is LBP. you won't be disappointed

    Well i got my PS3. So far im diggin it.

    I got Marv UA2. And i didnt have enough $ for Infamous so i got the Demo for free lol.

    Not too much time to play tonight so i just messed with Inf and messed around in Home. Home is a lot of fun i must say.

    I love the internet on the system. And the hard drive...These 2 things are things i really with Nintendo would have, or at least have on there next system. Graphics r a plus too although im not a huge graphics guy.

    Anyways if anyone ever wants to play Marvel Ultimate Alliance hit me up.

    They come with a cable that plugs into the controller and any powered USB port to charge it... HDMI cable is needed if your TV has that input... Logitech make a PS3 controller like you are looking for...

    Congrats on the new PS3. I doubt you will be dissappointed.

    UNCHARTED 2 is a MUST buy.

    Yea i feel bad about Uncharted 2. I played the first on the demo and hated it soo much. I was never a fan of the Tomb Raider games and this game just dont seem like its for me.

    I like games where you char gets stronger. Like lvlin up and picking new skills and stuff. Diablo 2 is prob the best example of a perfect game for me.
