Finally caved, got a PS3

Got some extra cash, and finally found someone auctioning one off for around 214 USD here. That is 1200 NOK, when this particular one (Slim 320Gb) usually costs around 2000 NOK (357 USD).

Now, my main reason for wanting one has been two-fold. Journey and finally having a Blu-ray player. But only getting it for that would be kind of a waste, even though most decent Blu-ray players cost the same as what I paid for this PS3.

So before it arrives I need something more to use on it. I got lots of work the next three days, so I won't be able to really dive in until Sunday, which means I got time to get more stuff. Already ordered a copy of the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD collection, as I have always wanted to play those. But then I am at a loss...

I already own a 360, do most my gaming these days on PC. I don't care much for Metal Gear or Final Fantasy, and I don't like sport or racing games (unless it's Burnout). So... what should I get?

I know this question pop up way to much, so I am not going to share it on the forum. Hopefully one of you, my fine followers, will have some good ideas!

I got one as a present this christmas - so I am in the same boat as you are!

I got red dead redemption - been playing it as my first ps3 game - it's pretty awesome. Don't forget to check out uncharted series also.

Eventually going to try to pick up Heavy Rain.

I recommend the inFamous collection and Heavy Rain to start.

@JCTango: Awesome!

Already beaten RDR on 360, one of the best games of the generation for me. Should probably check out Uncharted and Heavy Rain.

@DarthOrange: inFamous! That was one of the games I really wanted to try. Thank you kindly.
