no i have broadband and use my wireless router to run our "home" network, the printer, PS3, Wii, and 3 laptops,

any of the laptops can access mine for music / videos as i am the main downloader..... so its like a communal store

Yup. Argos, for once, seem to be as competitive on price as others. Think they had an offer with a couple of free games with it too, unless they've altered it.

They sometimes have good deals! High street is probably the best place to score a decent bundle as you can pick and choose games you want!

check out www.gamespot.com for decent reviews on all PS3 titles.

If you want a copy of Little Big Planet, you can have the one that came free with my PS3.  I played it once and no-one exploded so it just went back in the box.  I have Need for Speed Shift too.  I could probably be talked into parting with that for a little bit of cash as I've kind of finished it and playing online just doesn't do it for me.  I can post the both of them to you for twenty quid if you want.
