Managed to get a slim ps3 for £160 from tesco.

As above whats needed for a ps3? any recommended games(offline only as i use my 360 for all online gaming)

Also regarding custom firmware can you go online if putting this on?

just get a memory stick put the custom pup on there and use the update via usb memory stick on the PS3
You can use the MFW Builder, or use Kmeaw's CFW (Think thats how it spelt) to get the custom .pup

Can't go online easily at the moment, requires messing with SSL certificates


Would recommend looking on PSX-Scene or PSGroove

Games:
Gran Turismo 5
Uncharted 1 & 2 (3 coming out later this year)

You get get online using the v3.55 kmeaw custom firmware *at the moment* but it's a cat and mouse game between the hackers and Sony, to find ways around Sony's mandatory firmware upgrades which are needed to get online. If you're going to install CFW, i'd advise staying offline as you wouldn't want that nice new console to end up banned right away!

Yes works
most likely under 3.56 so should be fine for CFW.
