  • Okay, I admit it
  • If you are in the market for a controller definitely get one of the actual Sony DualShock 3's. If they did not include it with your system, you will also need to get a USB cable with A-to-mini B connection (same as most digital cameras use) for charging up on the PS3 as well as giving the controller an initial sync to the system. You can get these any place with electronics for sale. Compare the charge port on your controller to the cable to find the right one.

    Syncing this up won't require the system update so you'd be able to set that up first and then do the system update. To do this update just head to the Settings menu to System Update at the top, select to update via internet and scroll right a bit until you get to the start download button. The system will take care of the rest with downloading. When it restarts, just hit the PS button on the controller and it will install.
  • Thank you! I'll give it a try.
