Brand New PS3 owner

7 replies 168 views Edited Nov 4, 2012

So I joined the ranks 2 days ago and purchased a PS3.  Its the first real console I've purchased since I purchased the PSone back in the day (no, the Wii is not a real console, its like the Tiger Handheld of the current generation lol).  Fridays purchase was dead out of the box, so I was issued a replacement, been loving it.  I've been a PC gamer for so long, I forgot what console gaming has been about.

 

Been getting a heavy dose of Red Dead Redemption, FF XIII, and NHL 13.

 

Aside from netflix, gaming, and using the PS3 as a media server, any other cool features I should know about?

Let's see....PS3 has Playstation Home. It is a virtual chat room that is free to enter. You can meet and talk to people there. Or you could make an account for different counties and visit different Playstation Home's around the world (Europe, Hong Kong, Japan). All for free.

 

It is very easy to download photos, music and video into your PS3.

 

PS3 is virus proof. The browser is not very good. But you can go to sites without worrying about getting a virus that could destroy a PC.

 

For $50 dollars a year you can get Playstation Plus and get a ton of  games from the Playstation Store.

Return it while you can. Sony PS3 is a scam, they will update your firmware and then it gets bricked and try to scam you into paying a 99.00 service to repair it.

 

Luckly I purchased this crap at Costco in 2010 and they allowed me to return it. At this point, Im without a PS3 and bunch accessories for PS3 Move, Camera, over 20 games that are now useless. Thanks Sony for messing up my weekened with the BS update you call 4.31.
