Any one play demon's souls on the ps3? Effin loved that game. Far and away the best, and most difficult, game I've ever played. I'm hoping there is a sequel in the making.

I just bought a new tv, so it will be a while before I have any money for a new gaming console, but if it's not really needed I'd rather spend the extra $50 on a new game!
Oh, Bonnie? DLCs are downloaded content. You will be downloading some.

If you get a Wii, however, you and Charla can beat each other up.

Ahhh, so do I need the bigger PS3 then? Will I be downloading that much? Or by the time I fill up 160gb's will they come out with PS4 and I'll just want that one?

no. Not even with DLC's will you need the bigger hard drive.
Get the smaller one. I'm guessing adding memory to the playstation is as easy as the xbox? I was convinced I needed the big hard drive, and when I went to buy it, they only had the small one in stock. All they did is throw in the 120gb add on hard drive for the price difference between the two. I'm nowhere near needing it.

ps3 must haves gta5, resident evil 5,metal gear, dead space 2. online play battlefield2. Dont worry about backward compatable, once you see the graphics ps2 games wont interest you. My ps3 is a 40g and is 4 years old and never a problem.

Here's how to upgrade your HDD. Keep in mind the PS3 uses a laptop HDD.

Looks like my PS3, Bluray remote, and Red Dead Redemption should show up today. I wanted something to play with my girlfriend so I used my bonus credit to order the Dualshock3+Little Big Planet pack.

Reminds me... Should I be ordering another charging cable for an extra controller? It appears that the extra ones don't come with them...

Get the second controller but don't get the charge cable. It's a standard USB to mini USB cable hat comes with just about every digital camera these days. So you'll probably have a few. The PS3 cable is no longer then my other cables either.

LBP requires two players at times to get 100%.

Me and my ex used to have a blast on little big planet.

You guys will enjoy it.

OK. I'm going to go back to mass effect. I think I'll skip 1 and go right in to ME2 with a new character. My helper at work says it's worth it to have the cerberus network. Since I bought it used, I didn't get a code. Is it worth it to pay $15 for it through xbox, or is it too late to worry about?
Does anybody have an extra code they didn't use laying around?

Broke down and got Red Dead Redemption last weekend. I so suck at 3rd person games ( can never seem to master the controller ) almost gave up a couple of times, but damn I'm starting to really enjoy this game, it's got some interesting characters in it, and a good plot developing. Can't wait to play it some more.

Your point about hard drive space is my biggest beaf with the PS3... Why is it an XBOX 360 update is 5 MB, but a PS3 Update is a fucking Gig... you are probably still correct that you wont need a huge HD, but jesus F'n Christ, whats with the gigs and gigs of updates for games that arent even that great... I have both, but if I could only have 1 it wouldnt be the PS3...
