I accidentally found this page by making a typo in the address bar - seems like quite the beneficial mistake that was!
I'm fairly new as a PS3 gamer, as well. I've had my system about 8 or 9 months now. Before my PS3 purchase I tended to be a retro-gamer; the SNES was my system of choice. RPGs is my preferred genre but I'll play action/adventures and platformers when I get burnt out.
I'm going for my first three platinums now; I'm extremely close to achieving them for FFXIII and FFXIII-2 as well as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
