There is the PlayStation Store, where you can buy a variety of things, including PS1 games, they have been made available for the PS3 so you just buy them, download them onto your hard drive and play them. This is brilliant news for anyone that loves the old PS1 games but no longer has a working PS1, or cannot get hold of the games they like. Not all PS1 games are available, but there are a lot that are. You can also buy add-ons for some games, as well as things like themes and avatars to customise your actual console.There is also a friends list where you can add friends and send them messages, in your friends list you can see who is online, what game they are playing and what trophies they have.
Trophies are another new PS3 feature, not all games have trophies but a lot of them do. There are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum trophies in each game, the Bronze ones being the easiest to get. You get a Platinum trophy for completing every other trophy in the game. Some trophies are very easy, for example in Fifa 11 you get a trophy simply for going into the EA store. Other trophies are harder, such as in Assassins Creed II you get a trophy for collecting all one hundred feathers in the game, and they can be very hard to find and acquire. Most trophies you get simply by playing the game, others you need to specifically work on to receive them.The PS3 also streams from a media server, for example if you have your laptop set up to share files then you can connect the PS3 to it and watch a movie that is on your laptop, if your internet connection is a bit slow for streaming then with the click of a button on the PS3 controller you can copy the film onto your PS3, then if you want you can delete it once you have watched it. You can also access photos and music in this manner.
The PS3 is very easy to use and doesn’t take very long to figure out. The menus are laid out nicely and everything is clear to understand.
