Hi can someone tell me what i need to do with a new ps3 please? I have it all set up and working but i want to get it online now to use iplayer etc. Do i need to create an account on the console or on the net before doing this? I know with my 360 i lost about 2000 xp when i put it online as i cocked it up so would like to do this one right. thanks for any help / links etc

i had the same when i went from offline xbox account to a xbox live accoutn, lost quite a bit of achievments etc since i had played for half a year without live :(

on ps3 though all you do is go to the playstation network tab and it will have sign into psn account then from there ask you if you want to create a new one or log into an existing one, just mae a new one on the console and then your stuff will all still be linked to that account when it is online and you shouldnt lose anything

You will also have to set up your wireless in settings.

yer, the problem you may have when it is set up, is to check that you have set the internet connection to whichever you are using (wireless or wired) as the ps3 wont detect which of the 2 you are using you have to tell it from the settings screen.

Setting up an account takes a few mins as long as you can think of a username that hasnt been taken :D

iplayer, itv, 4od all start to pop up automatically on the media bar after you've been on the net/ in the psn store a few times.

But check this too:

Thanks for all you help everyone. I am going to hard wire it into my router along with the xbox so won't have to worry about the wireless settings. I shall have a go in the next day or two and find the network tab part which i am guessing is on the console screen itself and i can do it all through that.

Just go to the Playstation store whether it be via the Game, network, music tab, it's the 1st page you see.
