    Just traded my 360 for a backwards compatible ps3 with upgraded HDD :bowdown::bowdown:

    So I havent owned a PS3 and I know I have missed a lot of good titles, I put up a craigslist add lookin for cheap stuff already... but what else am i missing?

    I don't play shooters on consoles keep in mind...

    My list:

    Uncharted 1 and 2
    Motostorm 1 and 2
    MGS4
    Little Big Planet
    Heavenly Sword
    God of War Series (any)

    anything else I'm missing? Doesn't have to be exclusive, I hadn't purchased a 360 game in at least a year (thats why I did the trade). But no shooters (Ie not interested in Infamous and crap).

    Also, can I seriously just plug and play any usb mouse and keyboard into this thing? cuz that MAY change my mind about FPS games to some extent.

    Also what do you guys think of the deal I did... I think I got a fair deal, only now I gotta spend $ on good games...

    My 60gb Pro, wireless adapter, 2 controllers, 1 play n charge, 11 games

    (fight night 3 &4, madden 08 &09, marvel ult alliance, forza 2, skate 2, guitar hero 3 w/ controller, nba2k9, ncaa football 08', GTA4)

    FOR

    60gb backwards compatible ps3 w/ upgraded 160gb HDD, 2 controllers (1 offbrand), 6 games (timeshift, tiger woods 08, gundam crossfire, madden 09, fight night 4, uncharted 1)

    everything works great :big grin:

    edit: I have thought about maybe trying to sell the PS3 directly on craigslist for $$ to buy a new in box 120gb slim model... I won't use the backwards compatibility really and I know they are worth a bit more to some people, but do I lose anything else by doing this? Digital Optical out still on the slims?

    Must haves for me are:
    Uncharted 1 and 2
    MGS4
    LBP
    Heavy Rain
    FFXIII (although not exclusive you got rid of your 360 so...)

    Other decent games:
    Motorstorm 1 if it's cheap, not sure about 2.
    Infamous
    Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction
    Valkria Chronicles

    I also hear good things about White Knight Chronicles, Disgaea 3 and Demon Souls.

    no you cant just plug in a mouse and keyboard for games. games have to have the support built into them for it to register.

    if you arent gonna use the BC on it, if you can get the money for a slim, it wouldnt hurt to have a newer model just in case :dunno:

    and infamous is far from a shooter. uncharted is more of a shooter than infamous. regardless, infamous is an awesome game. worth picking up.

    theres a number of fps' on ps3 that are well worth playing through. the crying about no mouse and keyboard is tired and boring. if you want to play console games, you use a controller, been like that for years.

    I just play my FPS on PC.

    But Uncharted games, GOW series, MGS4 (buy essentials collection which is 1-3 for 19.99 if you haven't played any since you have a BC PS3), Demon Souls, Saints Row 2, Just Cause 2 are all awesome.
    Uncharted 2 is the most amazing action/adventure game I've ever played, but play the first 1 first which is still awesome, but you'll see what an improvement U2 is after playing it.

    Heavy Rain is a rental (I rented Uncharted 1&2 also since they're pretty short).

    And I'm into RPGs so Valkyria Chonicles, Star Ocean International, FF13, Eternal Sonata, and Resonance of Fate are buys for me.

    I love my 60gb for playing through all my PS2 RPGs since I have a backlog :o Digital Memory card ftw.
