    Default Getting a PS3 ... need some suggestions on what to get.

    I've got a 160GB PS3 "fat" on layaway with Warhawks ... need a suggestion on what to get that isn't the obvious "Uncharted" style of answer because those games hold no interest to me whatsoever right now. Maybe when I see them cheap ...

    I just want some suggestions for PS3 exclusives that aren't the typical answer that one hears from everyone. I don't have any interest in the third party stuff, because in most cases they're done better on the 360 anyway.

    It can be anything. Retail, PSN store, whatever. :)

    Give Valkyria Chronicles a try. It's a great game, cheap now, and exclusive to PS3.

    I know this is an obvious one too, but you have to get Little Big Planet

    Oh, definitely. That'll probably be the first retail game I get.

    And as far as Valkyria Chronicles goes, if there's a demo I'll give that a try. But from what I've heard it's a strategy RPG and ... well ... I'm not that smart. :P

    If you take a look at my Xbox 360 games I've played and the games I have on Steam (Dhalamar is the handle for both) you'll see I generally like to shoot people in face. :P

    For the PlayStation Network Flower, High Velocity Bowling, and Super Stardust HD. Also some fairly cheap games you may like Folklore, Heavenly Sword, and if you like online shooters Socom Confrontation is an okay game if you can find for a bargin.

    The other games I'm thinking about getting eventually, but Socom games are out of the question because I'm pretty particular about my shooters. They've got to be extremely fast paced or else I just end up getting bored. heh

    And no, Call of Duty isn't fast paced before someone brings it up. :P

    That and I have issues playing shooters with Sony's controller anyway. For just about everything else it works great (especially Katamari games) ... but for shooters I don't like having the analogs right next to each other.

    Of course Razr is either releasing or has released a PS3 controller that is basically a 360 controller. So I definitely plan on getting that if I can find it. If I'm going to be forced to use a controller in a shooter, it's got to at least work.

    Hey Dhalamar! Have you played Dead Space 2 yet? The PS3 version gives you some exclusives over the 360 version. For example you get dead space extraction for free.

    I played a little bit of the first one and couldn't really get into it.
