Ok so i am looking to buy a PS3 Slim but i dont know much about what i will need exactly. I have a Xbox 360 and have had it for 2 yeras now and im happy with it but im looking to try something new now.

What am i looking at paying for a brand new Ps3 Slim 320GB with Fifa 11 and also what do i get with it in the box if i was to buy from Gamestation and Argos etc.

Als what else would i need to buy for it? Thanks.

You'd need a HDMI cable, 1m for £1 from poundland or 1.8m for £5 at Asda or £20 at Currys!

Cheers. I meant like with the Xbox 360 i had to buy Xbox live Gold subscription, a rechargeable battery charger, Headset, etc.

How many pads do you get with the PS3 when bought from say Sainsburys or Gamestation and also what about the batteries? Are they rechargeable and do you get a charger with the bundle or do you have to buy seperatley Also do you get a headset?

And whats with this PS3 Move i keep reading about? Is it worth getting?

One of my minor gripes with the PS3 is that you have to charge the controller while the PS3 is turned on but the cable you get with the system is about a foot long, so playing and charging is out. If you can I would see if you can find a really long USB to mini USB cable or you will be sitting with your nose pressed up against the screen to finish that last level after the pad drops out on you.

^^^ You can get 3m USB leads from Ebay for around £1.50.

If you intend to use the bluray or media player functions then a bluray remote may be worth a look.

You don't need to charge the controller on the PS3.
I've used my laptop to play and charge my controller for years. So i can be as far away from the screen as i want, while playing and charging.

Thank you so much for all the replies really appreciate it. So im hearing from quite a few people not to bother with the Ps3 move so il probably leave that.
