So you've finally decided to plunk down $299 on the new smaller, cheaper Sony PlayStation 3. Welcome to the neighborhood, friend! However, with several years worth of games already on store shelves, it can be a bit overwhelming to choose solid titles to play. Allow Kombo to steer you in the proper direction with a list of essential PS3 games (both on Blu-ray disc and downloadable from the PlayStation Network) and important accessories.
The list features only PS3-exclusives, but just in case you're joining the PS3 club after only owning a Nintendo Wii this generation, here are some PS3 games you have to play that also appear on the Microsoft Xbox 360 and, in some cases, PC: Bionic Commando (and Bionic Commando Rearmed), Batman: Arkham Asylum, Burnout Paradise , Marvel vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter IV, The Godfather II, and Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty. Once again, welcome!
