    you shoud'nt.

    get an sata internal hard drive, it doesnt void your warranty if you change it. also get gta iv for it

    is it easy to put a sata internal drive=im not that good at putting that in

    i would definately reccomend you get call of duty 4 and GRID. Imho i thought GTA IV was boring and the same again!

    I agree. I don't think you can play files over 4GB from an external drive. You'll need a HDMI cable (if using a HDTV) as you don't get one in the box. And if you're going to watch Blu Rays, buy on of the BR Remotes,as they are much better to use then the controller.

    In terms of games, it depends what you like. Post the sort of games you like, and I'm sure you'll get some good suggestions.

    how long until the PS3 vs 360 debate starts?

    ^ just then

    may get a sata internal do u think 750 gig is enough?
    i have lots of hdmi cables somewhere
    the remote is it good?

    If using an external HDD it needs to be fat 32 so no high def movies but if you watch HDdvd rips or bluray rips like me then you just burn them to disc and you can watch them like any other burnt movies nice big 8 gig rips and HD Rips in Avi look great really do they look just as good as on my HTPC. In terms of divx stuff any HDD will do the ps3 compatibility is excellent.

    Games pick up any of these: Uncharted, Motorstorm, Ratchet and clank, Burnout Paradise, GTA4, MGS4, GT5P, Folklore, Assasins Creed. There are alot available now.

    You will need an HDMI cable if using with a hDTV and you eed to go into video settings and set RGB Full to ON.

    Same as me then really. :thumbsup:

    FIFA 08 and Euro 2008 are both good (Pro Evo is pretty awful though, especially online). Motorstorm can be had pretty cheap (got a copy I'd be willing to part with, if you're interested) and GT5 Prologue is worth buying for the price (about £18). I'd also recommend Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank (from the PS3 exclusive stuff) and Guitar Hero.

    Well if you read the post its obvious why hes buying a ps3.

    He only wants to watch blu ray films and play the odd game:p

    I'd check on the drive size if I were you, as a 750GB 2.5" SATA drive is going to be ridiculously expensive, and last time I checked I don't think you could fit more than 250.

    And I definitely recommend the remote :thumbsup:

    hey thanks for everyone for inputting so much info
    well here goes -the console is £275 at cex-which it probably cost me around £130-i traded in lots of hd films-(thanks to hukd)!
    so a remote is £15 thats £290
    gt5-which is £15 so £305 so far
    fifa 08 il wait till cex reduces it!

    forget the hard drive nonsense. you wont need it unless you want to store lots of movies etc on it. cam always put one in later if needed.

    defo fifa08, grid, gta4, cod4, uncharted, resistence.

    join lovefilm with the 3 months free code and rent before you buy. Saved me a fortune in unecessary purchases. (Just got mario kart and grid sent to me

    what?:?

    If you're buying from CEX expect the cost to be so close to retail that you may as well buy it new. I imagine it's too late now.

    I hope you're happy with someone else's console.

    CEX are a bloody ripoff. Not even close to Gamestation in exchange and deals.
