The new bundle out on the 28th with Little Big Planet

First one bought was £550, this was £306 with 4 games, a HDMI cable and 21 on blu ray

Console working out about £190 delivered (cheaper than my 300 quid blu ray player which will go straight on ebay me thinks)

Can I have some starter help please guys

I own all 3 consoles now so this is a neutral post hopefully

- If something goes wrong how long is the warranty and is it courriered or do amazon give you a new one

- does it upscale blu ray? the first ones didn't

- how do you get online and what do you need for it

- can you talk online like the 360? and do you need to buy a mic then

-anyone had any problems or is it noisey etc

Thanks guys, any help would be greatly appreciated

to get online you can use wireless internet or ethernet connection... when you first turn on your ps3 jus follow the intruction..

to talk on line you can use a blutooth head set....or you could buy the ps3 eye that has both a camera and mic that plus usb....looking at getting one myself.

Are your questions for the non-English members seeing as you believe the English are educationally backward? ;)

Anyway:-

If something goes wrong how long is the warranty and is it courriered or do amazon give you a new one
1 year warranty and contact amazon if a fault develops. Outside of 1 year, contact Sony as rumours suggest they replace even out of warranty for a while afterthe initial year

- does it upscale blu ray? the first ones didn't
blu-ray is FULL HD resolution so it would not get upscaled from what I recall. it might get downscaled.

- how do you get online and what do you need for it
already has wifi so just connect using cat5e cable to a router or scan automatically for a wireless router

- can you talk online like the 360? and do you need to buy a mic then
yes, but you need a bluetooth headset and then scan for the device under system settings

-anyone had any problems or is it noisey etc
never had any problem and is practically silent and mine is the 60gb model. The 40/80gb models should be even quieter as less power used.

Decent sites:-

My PS3 revs like crazy after a good hour of gameplay when the fans kick in. Should i be worried then and arrange a replacement?

While it's still in warranty (if it is), it may be worth a phone call to get it checked over... I have 2 and both are practically silent, even after prolonged use.

You do have it in a well-ventilated area, don't you?

The PS3 should come with a USB charger cable for your controllers

It DOES upscale DVD, yeah - all of them do now... it was introduced by a firmware update :thumbsup:

The original PS3 upscales DVDs to 1080p! I use it every day almost, maybe it had to be updated first though.....

Either that or I've had a mental aberration for the last year lol.
