    I know its not under your catergories, but...I'd recommended Uncharted to anyone

    And obviously get CoD4, that game is pure quality

    If you can wait a few days, import Unreal Tournament 3. That game's a blast and with all the content (31 DM Maps alone released so far) from users, it just gets better.

    There's Warhawk too and Super Stardust HD (A shooter kind of I guess).

    Whatever you get, I think the PS3's time is coming so good choice and enjoy your new purchase! :thumbsup:

    I'm looking at doing the same thing today but getting 3 games instead.

    I'll have to get Singstar for the missus but looking to get Uncharted too but was wondering what other game. Is Fifa08 any good?

    I've got COD4 on the 360 so I doubt it's worth me getting that for the PS3, even though the 360 will be in the 2nd reception room.

    1) Racing - wait for Burnout Paradise next Friday. If you can't wait then get Motorstorm.
    2) Beat-em-up - Virtua Fighter 5
    3) Shoot-em-up - Call Of Duty 4
    4) Puzzle games - there are none to buy in retail but several to choose from on the PSN stor for £5-10.

    Try this thread for puzzle game suggestions. Uncharted has a few puzzle elements, but I wouldn't call it a puzzle game.

    Not sure if you are getting a bundle deal but, if not, I would highly recommend Guitar Hero III. :smashin:

    These would be my first choices

    I can also reccomend MOH Airbourne, not as good as COD4 but a good game, FEAR is a good shooter worth a play.

    Cant believe nobody has mentioned Dirt as this is awesome, motorstorm just doesnt appeal to me at all.

    Call Of Duty 4 or MOH Airborne, COD4 is defo the best game on PS3 at mo tho!

    I've had my PS3 since Thursday bought Resistance and Uncharted with it.

    Burnout Paradise and Call of Duty 4 are coming next.

    I would definitely recommend Uncharted, been playing it today for a few hours and it blew me away, graphically and game play wise :)

    IMHO Tekken is just a high resolution version of a PS2 game whilst VF5 has been developed specifically for the current gen consoles. Also VF5 is a much deeper game with a lot more to offer then Tekken. Tekken is a good game but I personally think VF5 is the better game. It is more technical then Tekken though.
