Yahoo's Essential Accessories for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii

"A new game console is just the tip of the iceberg. Every system has essential (and not so essential) accessories.

Years ago, buying electronics as a gift wasn't too complicated. Pick up some batteries to go along with the new toy and everything would work come delivery time. Game consoles are a little more complicated. All come with one controller, but you'll certainly want to pick up at least one more. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Essentials include network adaptors and charging stands, and each console is served by an aftermarket catalog that features everything from steering wheels to colored controller sleeves."

If the other accessories are made by aftermarket then there might be a slight chance that it wont last too long depends on how you take care of it and same goes to original manufacturers (SONY, Microsoft and Nintendo) but they usually are more durable than the other counterparts. All in all i think that it doesnt really matter where you buy them because they where all made the same but its nice to give another addition to the consumers where to buy their products. I just go buy at the closest store. I dont want to wait or pay for shipping personally

Sony doesn't really do accessories as pretty much everything comes in the PS3 already. If you get a good bundle online with two controllers, a game and a HDMI cable, you do not *NEED* anything extra to get started. If Sony included HDMI cables in the retail box, you'd be set up for everything from the off without bundles.

This article says "Essential" accessories, but I'd disagree with the PS3 selection as you don't need a blu-ray remote (as your controller can do that already), the memory card adapter is only needed if you had a PS2 and want to carry on any saved games, the HDMI cable comes with most bundles these days and the last one - were they running out of things to include? lol

One of the reasons I chose the PS3 over the Xbox 360 is due to everything I wanted was already included in the PS3. It also worked out cheaper (surprisingly) because of that.

I see what you mean and i totally forgot to mention that. I agree, that too is the same reason of many reasons i bought a Ps3. Buy a car with all the options you want in it rather have it installed later. Check! Saves time
