What should I do with my new PS3?

    So a girl I know said she wanted to play the new Ratchet and Clank with me when it comes out and she would go in on a PS3 with me and we could keep it at my place and she would come over and hang out... :)

    Knowing I make way more than her I just bought the thing, but I can't think of a damn thing to do with it other than that. All the games that look good I already have on my PC, which plays them better and at higher resolution anyway. Some of the little downloadable games look fun, 10 bucks a piece though for something I'll probably play for an hour tops. I already set up a media server on my PC to stream videos and music to it, which is kind of nice but nothing I couldn't do without it. I tried hanging out in "home" and hate it.

    I mean, the thing is cool as shit I just can't think of anything to do with it, are there any downloadable games worth the 10 bucks or can anyone recommend some PS3 exclusives that I couldn't get on my PC? I like Adventure/RPG/Racing/FPS (non-realistic, no ultra realistic war sims), not so much sports or strategy or puzzle or any of that shit.

    and get to playing through the exclusives, if you're picky you won't like the selection, but there are plenty of great PS3 games (Uncharted, Uncharted 2, Resistance, Resistance 2, Red Faction, etc) out there if you look.

    I downloaded the demo, its kind of weird and not really what I expected.

    So games to check out include uncharted, killzone, infamous, and demons soul? I already got ratchet and clank, and I finished red faction guerrilla on my PC.

    Oh, one more thing, is there any way to find out if it is one that can play PS2 games? I bought this used, its a 40gb, I know only some can play the PS2 discs but don't know if this can.

    40GBs do not have backwards compatability.

    :werd: you need a 20, 60, or original 80 gig.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_3

    There's a table about halfway down that has all the PS3 models every made and lists what the model can do.

    All PS3's can play PS1 games though.

    Use it to play games, dawg.

    Tons of good downloadable ones, but it depends what you are into. There is something for everyone. My GF loves playing Puzzle Fighter HD Remix on the PS3, and I just got her started on her own Uncharted 2 save file (on Very Easy :mamoru:). Best bet it to search online for videos of some of the digital-only games and see which look interesting to you.

    First thing you should do is stop trolling about it, then maybe we'll suggest good games.

    :-X didnt see that

    umm... but seriously the PlayOn things is really nice.

    I dont have a lot of exclusives for the PS3. but Valkyrie Chronicles + Little Big Planet are a lot of fun.

    MGS is a must play game/movie if you have a weekend to have fun.

    everyone will say Uncharted 2, but I havn't played it yet.

    Resistance 1 and 2 are epic titles as well.

    as for PSN

    Wipeout is a must have
    War Hawk
    Tekken5 is also on PSN
    i cant remember all my games...

    one sec

    Edit: there ya go. some ideas... just what I own...
