    Lol say bye to your college/school/Uni work, also the consoles are not very good I'd recommed pc gaming, you can have a medium build for 300 quid .
    But if you ain't got the money for a proper 1000 then I'd PS3 is good even though Xbox 360 is much better :P

    Farcry 3 sold out across my home city over christmas, I think it's doing fairly well

    Gran Turismo is also good if you enjoy racing games.
    I second this, Gran Turismo is one of the best racing games out there on the PS3, in fact it is, can't think of other good ones.

    It requires good skill to post fast laps consistently, but it's really fun online, try getting in a group of friends that race clean. There's so much fun to be had!

    Uncharted 2
    Red Dead Redemption
    Assassin's Creed (I didn't like it but if you're in to that sort of thing, plus the graphics are good)

    I have just started to play Heavy Rain so can't make a fair judgement of it

    It could also be worth considering Playstation Plus; for an annual fee of around £40 you can download full games as part of the "Instant Game Collection".

    Some current titles you can get are:

    - Bioshock 2
    - Vanquish
    - Ratchet & Clank 4
    - Little Big Planet 2
    - Infamous 2
    - Lego Batman
    - Motorstorm Apocalypse
    - Mortal Kombat

    Once a member, you can download all of these games completely for free, and you can play them as long as you're a PS+ member. There are also new games added every couple of weeks.

    This might depend on how much hard drive space you've got on your PS3, but it's a great way to (for the price of one normal game!) get stuck in with a load of great titles, with new ones to download every couple of weeks!
    For a new PS3 owner, I'd definitely agree with this :yep: A one-year Playstation Plus subscription is currently discounted, so you can get it for £29.99 - but only until 9 January.

    I would recommend a majority of the exclusive games such as GoW, Killzone etc, you can pick them up dirt cheap brand new or at CEX so no excuse not to play some amazing games!

    Also let's not forget MGS4 that is my personal favorite!

    p.s. I also love some of the retro collections you can get, it's nice to revive that nostalgia
    Thanks dude. Lol, I'll get some "amazing games" no problem dude

    Hi there fellow students, I have just purchased the PS3, it is to arrive on Monday.
    I would like to ask what games would you recommend on one getting?

    Thanks in advance.
    Well if you wanna play online then the good games are quite obvious: Call of duty, Fifa, Battlefield, etc.

    But some PS3 games are even better to play in story mode and a prime example is metal gear solid 4: guns of the patriots.

    luckily for you that game is now a lot cheaper than it was during its release, I remember paying 60 dollars for mine lol. However the online mode for that has been taken down to prepare for the release of the new metal gear game coming out this summer.

    Other noteworthy single player games are:
    Uncharted
    Batman: Arkham city
    Little big planet
    Heavenly sword
    God of War 3
    Killzone 3
    Resistance: burning skies

    Thanks for the list bud. Oh, didn't know there'll be another MGS game...
    Would you say Heavenly Sword is the female version of GOW?
    That's what I remember thinking back when it was first introduced

    Lol yea I'd say that analogy is quite accurate although the lead protagonist is like the only female in that game, It was also one of those '07 titles that came out soon after the PS3 debut so developers put a lot of work in it to show customers the capabilities of the seventh generation. Games released a few years later (mostly in 2009) lost the incentive to try as hard which is why the best PS3 games are either quite new or very old.

    Red Dead Redemption is one of the only games worth getting a console for. Get it. Also Uncharted, that's worth it. An when it comes out, GTA V. You should only get PS3/console exclusive games on the PS3, for the rest get them on PC.

    Whilst it is really down to what you want to play, I really would recommend the Uncharted series. It's a brilliant, possibly the best, example of what can be done with the PS3 when game developers are actually willing to put a bit of effort in. The gameplay is actually interesting, the graphics are stunning, the characters are well thought out...
