    Got the 60GB edition with the four USB ports and hardware-based backwards compatibility (emulation), FTW! :coold:

    Paid $400 for the following:
    • PS3 60GB
    • 2 Synaxis Wireless Controllers & Recharge Cable
    • HDMI Cable
    • Power Cable
    • Madden '07
    • Carrying Case
    Here are the games I'm definitely considering buying or at least renting (for now):
    • Pure
    • Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
    • Motorstorm: Pacific Rim
    • Pro Evolution Soccer 2009
    • BioShock
    • CoD 4
    • CoD: World at War
    • Rock Band 2
    • Assassin's Creed
    • Heavenly Sword
    • GTA IV
    Do y'all have any advice for a new PS3 owner?

    Can I have this thing insured having not purchased it from a Sony store?

    What about modding?

    get a dual shock controller and those list of games will tide you over nicely. mgs 4 should be given a try for sure

    What's the difference between a Dual Shock and the Synaxis wireless controllers?

    Vibration?

    :werd: get a ds3

    no modding for the ps3 yet, though, unless you want to add l.e.d.'s to it or something.

    If it wasn't for BluRay I probably would've grabbed a 360. It's insane how easily moddable the 360 is. :eek3:

    Ahh I see. I'll have to pick up a couple. Do they have wireless dual shocks?

    Where did you get a 60 GB PS3? I can't find them anywhere here in southwest OH for that kind of price.

    It does...

    Anyway you should get Dead Space too if you don't already have it on the 360. Also you should do what I did and take out the 60GB HDD and swap it with a 320GB one =) Also partition it for the "other OS" and find a linux OS to put on there. I used to like PSUbuntu but a lot of the updates of the PS3 would screw with it so I'm looking for other OS's

    the SixAxis is a glitchy POS... the Dual Shock isn't (or so i'm told)

    :cool: Hope your Blu Ray drive doesn't fail, make sure to keep your receipt just in case. (its not near as bad as RRoD but it happens)
