    Is there such a thread?

    Also can you download games? How much is it?

    I have registered and logged on but despite following download links in the store I can't see how it works.

    Anyone help?

    Have logged onto PS3 shop and followed download links but they don't show any to download. Also how do you play games with anyone else? How do you add a sub member?

    Have you downloaded games? How much?

    Yes I have. They vary in price and will be listed as such before you buy.

    Once downloaded you install the game under the 'game' option on the XMB. Once installed, if a game supports 'online' you select it and play online.

    You are looking at the store through the PS3 I assume and not through a PC browser?

    Yes via PS3. When I have followed the download links It just shows similar to this http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/games/ and with no download link. I was expecting it to take me to a link asking for credit card details. Any links to examples of games you can download.

    There is no concept of 'linking' for downloads on the PS store. Just use the 'Playstion store' icon on the XMB, then go to to the games tab. There will 3 options of 'full games', 'demos' & 'classic games'. Click on the one you want within those tabs and add to your basket - then proceed to the checkout. Once paid for, you'll be able to download it.

    After downloading 1.92 I managed to download games etc. Thanks.

    Just as an aside...........I have a 32 " Toshiba LCD TV and the PS3 looks stunning.....but I'm convinced it will look better on a bigger screen......however since 99% of my viewing is with SD I don't think it warrants me buying a bigger TV.:thumbsdow
