As the title says, I got a PS3. Picked it up yesterday whilst in Tesco, 320gb slim model. Looking for some advice as to which games I should pick up. I got Little Big Planet 2 bundled with it and I bought Uncharted 2 because it was cheap.

Haven't tried out LBP2, doesn't really look like it will appeal to me, I'm thinking of selling it. Is Heavy Rain good? Looked nice when I seen it advertised on the TV ages ago. What about DC Universe? More interested in the exclusives.

Edit - Whats your PSN IDs? I'm quite lonely on it just now! Oh and is there any benefit of paying for the PSN? Am I still able to play online if I'm not a paying member?

Edit 2 - I remember hearing about MAG, is it pay to play?

I'll also say that I concur with pb's recommendation of the PixelJunk games, they're generally quite nicely done, and Eden's a little different to most things available at the moment (Racers is one that I'm not so sure on, the demo has me completely unconvinced on the gameplay side). PJShooter 2 came out today, incidentally, but i'll probably wait until at least I've finished the first one before getting that (although I too have 20 in my account waiting to be spent).

More in line with Xbox 360 updates was one of the reasons Sony didn't give.

I really can't fault it, although I am struggling to get to grips with the shooting as it's reversed from the 360 (R1 is fire opposed to the trigger) I could probably change it but I'm too lazy.[/i]

Know what you mean, was so dissapointed to find that out. I actually prefer the triggers on the PS3 controller, but they're grenades usually :(

Get it. It's really enjoyable and the multiplayer side of things is still fairly popular. Probably my favourite PS3 title so far.

Ah, yes, Motorstorm and Pacific Rift are both great. Heavenly Sword is worth a play through and is cheap now. God of War Collection and God Of War III are a good choice too.[/i]

The motorstorm games have been on my list for a long time. I need to scrape up the money to buy them.
