New PS3 owner in need of advice…
Just sold my old Xbox 360 and bought a PS3 (because of the blu-ray factor). A couple of questions for any PS3 owners out there;
1. Does the PS3 also ‘upscale’ standard dvd’s and if so how is the quality?
2. It is worth buying the remote control?
3. I was a Call of Duty player on the Xbox what is MW3 like on the PS3?

My remote has got a lot more use since they changed iPlayer so that it doesn’t need the analogue stick any more. It lived in the drawer for a long time because I’d always need a controller handy anyway, just for that.
£13 is probably fair value if you’ll be using it for watching things as much as gaming.
Upscaling of DVDs is as good as any other DVD player I’ve used and at least the slim ones aren’t so noisy either.Posted 6 years agoskeetsgbMember
if you are going to use the bluray alot then its probally worth the buy, also your missus ( if you have one) may struggle to use the pad if not used before, upscaler is fine and personally bf3 is far better , but its a different type of shooter. mw3 for me hasnt moved on. its to easy and gets boring to quickly. woth a purchase but at only at half price !Posted 6 years agobirdl123Member
Blu ray does up scale to i beleive ‘near HD quality’ – whatever that is.Posted 6 years ago
I dont have a seperate remote once you get used to using the controller that is all you need.
COD is the future, just brought Battlefield 3 because i fancied a change but played it online a handful of times and went back to the latest COD.

One worthy addition is PlayTv. Basically a little box which your aerial plugs into, and then connects to the PS3 via one of the USB ports. You then install the PlayTV software (it comes on a dvd), and your PS3 is now a PVR. It upscales standard definition TV, and is really slick. You can’t get them new anymore, but I got mine 2nd hand in Game for £12.99 – there are plenty on Ebay too.
Absolutely fantastic bit of kit, the only downside is that you have to download a software plug in to get series link functionality, which costs £6.Posted 6 years ago
