Hi, Ive been considering buying a PS3 for a while, but after researching its features, I find that I'm left a bit confused, so if someone could answer my question it'd be ace.
Firstly, can it connect wirelessly to the internet? Because my computer is on a wireless network, and it'd be so handy because there isnt an internet connection in the walls anywhere near my TV.
Is there anything else that's good to know before buying one?

Yes, indeed.

Metal Gear Solid 4. :yay: :up:
 
Oh, I should clarify that the 20GB console does NOT feature Wi-Fi. But if you're going to spend a fortune anyway, you might as well do it up royal and go with the 60GB or 80GB.

true, but the 20GB would be very difficult to find at this point, and the 60GB is increasingly becoming tougher as well. The new 40 GB (no backwards play) also has wi-fi
 
Yeah, I heard you cant play PS2 games on the 40GB PS3 :( I suppose I could just pawn my PS2 to get the extra money.
 
Sony and Microsoft are adding too much variety(imagine that) to their console models this gen. Colors are one thing, but in terms of the guts; 20GB, 40GB, 60GB, 80GB, flash card readers, no flash card readers, Wi-Fi, no Wi-Fi, Core, Premium, Elite, etc. etc. etc. ...Just give me one option, two at the most. I have more than enough difficult choices to make already, I don't need this extra pain in my life.

But then, of course, if they did that, they'll get you with the accessories later. You just can't win.
