    Console

    Extra pad, maybe a blu ray remote - games really depends on the genre he likes, shooty games or sports?

    You don't really NEED a 80gb hdd though, I have a 40gb model and i've never filled my hdd so you could look for a cheaper model now and if he feels like upgrading the hdd he can pay for a new one himself (They are easily upgradeable)

    As for games I can personally recommend inFamous, Red Faction: Guerilla, Little Big Planet, Devil May Cry 4. Have a look at metacritic.com/gam…s3/ and see which one's you think he will like.

    You should get atleast 1 wirless controller with it (Dualshock controllers are better)

    Does upgrading them cause the warranty not to be valid?

    Think 40GB is enough,we got a 60GB and it's nowhere near full.

    80gb is best bet

    games u should wait till u get closer but OH said GTA 4 is a must and modern warfare but dont come out till november

    OH just said they may b bringing out a slim n lite, but there is a planned price drop so wait a while

    Def, 80GB PS3.

    As for games Id say:
    Metal gear solid 4 (Get cheap now)
    Grand theft auto 4 (cheap as well)
    Street fighter 4 (now 17.99 other post)
    Kill zone 2.

    Also if his birthday is oct he would prob DEF want Call of duty modern warfare 2 and if he likes footie fifa 2010 comes out sep 21 09.

    Nope it doesn't, the hdd is easily accesible and you don't have to open up the console itself.
