    Rather than hijack the current Xbox360 thread of a similar name, anyone care to point out the must have PS3 games?

    I've just picked it up today with MGS4 and will get Wipeout HD from PSN, and have most of the big 360 games that were released across platforms ...

    I'd say Motorstorm is well worth a go, especially as it's so cheap second hand.

    I'd also download Siren and Stardust.

    I really like Gran Turismo 5 prologue. You may not, or you can wait for the 'full' game whenever it gets here.

    You obviously want someone to ask, so: don't say what?

    Ha ha! Nice try, I'm not going to say it.

    Let's just say it wouldn't be helpful or infact even funny, just distruptive.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Anyway, on topic, I've been meaning to get a current-gen console for feckin' ages, but could never really afford/justify it. I have just had the idea to get one as a free gift with a new mobile phone contract, which is due for renewal in less than a month. I have decided on the PS3 (I think; a lot will depend on how much I enjoy Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 at E2 later this month), and once I have one intend to buy the following exclusives:

    Uncharted
    Heavenly Sword
    Resistance (?)
    MGS4
    Wipeout HD
    Warhawk (?)
    Siren (probably the disc edition, whenever it's out)
    LBP
    Motorstorm 2 (?)
    Super Stardust HD

    And perhaps some more, none of which I can think of right now (stuff on PSN, methinks). Also really looking forward to Infamous and White Knight some time next year.

    I like loads, but some are cross platform:

    * Warhawk (by far my most played game... it is awesome. Not for showing off to friends and saying look at my cell graphics powah, but for playing)
    * Ratchet & Clank
    * Uncharted
    Burnout Paradise
    * Wipeout HD
    * Super Stardust HD
    * Siren
    Bioshock (heh!)
    * Metal Gear Solid 4 (epic)
    Oblivion
    * LittleBigPlanet (I was a betaboy)
    * Motorstorm (cheap now innit)

    hoping to add Valkyria Chronicles & Motorstorm Pacific Rift to this list once it comes in.

    Could be worth keeping an eye out for the PS3 Mirrors Edge too, stick to the 360 for the Fallout 3 one I guess.

    Heavenly Sword is not an essential title.

    Now these. Heavenly Sword is a great experience but it lacks the fighting finesse of any of its mass brawling competitors. Which is a shame as that is the crux of the game in places. Chapter 3 is awesome though.

    Resistance plays well. If you can play HL2 and get on ok, you will get on fine with RFOM. What you have to take into account is the DRAG which is the opening of the game. Once you hit Manchester, it gets a lot better (and harder).

    Motorstorm is just pure racing FUN. More pure than Pure bizarrely.

    I think it's £5 preowned in Gamestation. Doesn't make it essential but same price as a KFC boneless box. Actually, that's a tough choice.

    Triggerhappy - I just got this as a phone upgrade freebie, which is pretty much insane - how the hell are Carphone Warehouse making any money when they're giving away PS3/360/Wiis like crazy?

    Thanks for all the tips. Looks like Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, Motorstorm, Super Stardust and Siren are must haves.

    Anybody have any love for Echochrome? I remember seeing that a while back and thinking it looked amazing!

    In retrospect, I would take the chicken.

    Oh and to get the most out of your media playing. Investigate Tversity (stream or copy stuff wirelessly to your HD) and mkv2vob (for a 10 second conversion of HD .mkv files into tasty PS3 mp4ness).

    If you have a missus, Buzz is well worth a look in, but best to wait for the chrimbo edition.

    Lovely to look at, not so much to play.
    It's just kinda aggrivating.

    If you have 7 quid to spare and already bought SSDHD, I'd go for Dark Mist or Pixeljunk Eden, or The Last Guy - all of which are cheaper at a fiver each.

    Warhawk is easily the PS3 game I played the most, it's not very expensive either.
    However like someone already mentioned it's not the greatest looking game, but the gameplay is very addictive.
    WipeOut HD is great and cheap too.
    Uncharted is a very good looking game, fun to play, a little short though.

    Launch titles like Motorstorm, Resistance etc. can be picked up cheap from amazon.
    I bought Resistance for 7 £ pre-owned from amazon, decent shooter, single player isn't that great but multiplayer and coop are fun.

    Have I got you on my list RS? Always good to have a load of hawkers on there....

    I had no problems with Uncharted's length... took me about 8 months to get through!

    MGS4

    I think if you have the slightest interest in Resistance 2 you should pick up the first just to get acquainted. Seems to be a Marmite game, but I liked it more than COD4 in some regards.

    Motorstorm I wouldn't bother as the sequel will be out soon and will be the game the original should have been.

    Definitely Uncharted and Warhawk though. Loved those games. There's a demo of Warhawk on the US store if you want to try it (make a US account).
