PS3 Accessories? Games? - August 17, 2010, 11:12 AM

My son, Tyler (13) may be getting a PS3 for his birthday later this month. Any suggestions on 'have to have' accessories or games appropriate for this age? Thanks in advance!

No, he has a PS2 and a Wii (although I play the Wii more than he does)

for a 13 year old? Dragon Age Origins/Awakening would be good. Little Big World. Avatar seems to be good for the kids.

If he's into skateboarding type games, EA skate 1, 2, or 3 are all excellent

Mostly racing games and drifting games (Need for Speed series); and games like the Ratchet and Clank series. He is allowed to play Grandtheft games 'elsewhere' which I don't agree with, but he seems to like those type games as well.

if he's into racing games he will like that split/second one. Also gran turismo and he might enjoy MotoGP 09/10 (i'm sure he is not too picky with mechanics of games). There are also a bunch of rally games that are fun dirt and dirt 2. Need for speed is still one of my favourite car games.
Joey enjoys the Skate series and he looks 13 so your son might enjoy them as well. Shawn White also has a snowboarding one...Joey what you say about that one?

he will definitely enjoy the entire EA skate series. keep him busy and away from homework for hours at a time.

in reference to your earlier comment about ps3 vs xbox: did you already buy the ps3? if you end up getting xbox360 I'll give you skate 1 and probly a few other games. just let me know

No purchase has been made 'yet' but will be making the decision in the next few days. On my FB the response to the question of accessories the response was "TRASH THE PS3 and get an XBOX". I don't know much about these video game things (gosh saying that makes me feel old!).
