Unwrapped a PS3? Start With These 10 Tips and Tools

Now that the holiday gift-giving time is over, we're sure many of our readers unwrapped some new consoles. Despite its long life on the market, the Sony PlayStation 3 is still converting gamers everywhere, and many people were bound to receive one for the first time.

If you're one of those lucky people and you aren't sure what to do with your console right out of the box, we're here to help. We compiled the important things you should set up before getting started, as well as some great games you can download right away or should purchase the next time you're shopping. (PS3)

1st thing that you should do is get plus because thats a great way to build a library from scratch (although a temporary digital one if the subscription runs out).

I recommended my cousin to get a PS3 with plus and so far he hasn´t bought a game yet due to the amount of content that plus gave him.

I agree with you 100%

Agreed, PSN+ is definately worth the money. Early Beta access to some titles is a sweet bonus on top of free/discounted games.

not sure about tip 10, get some peripherals and it has Move pictured *shudders*

I'm ok with not owning the games that you get with PS Plus . Once I've finished a game I rarely go back and play them again. At least I get to play some great games all the way to the finish. Plus is a great deal for sure.

go to ps3-themes.com and install some kick ass themes, then fill your hdd with pictures, music and videos; create your own slide shows and playlists to go along with them.Another tip is to buy some clips for R2 and L2 buttons, they make a huge difference. Do i have to mention PS+?

Props for mentioning the free theme site(s). Always loved the support for user customised icons/themes/sounds...even dynamic themes. Just one click downloads.

I love theme sites too.
But lets not forget ps3youtube(dot)com for those who like collecting HD music videos and other such stuff.

If you have a year old or more plus account then you might need more than 500gb. (trust me it goes fast with ps3youtube & plus)
