That's the only way to play online if you dont have a wireless connection. Pretty much the same thing like any other machine that can connect to the internet with out a wireless connection..

its pretty straight forward, u can chat, use mics, have voice conversations, IM/Create messages, video chat etc...

U can add friends from the Recent players meet list
I never played the xbox360 version so i don't know the features on the Xbox live compared to PSN

Basically the same as LIVE

You'll find out as you go along.

Just go to the "Sign up for PSN" option, and take it from there. Multiplayer will be an option IN the game. There's nothing hard to understand about the PS3; it's just as easy to use as any other game console.

...unless you're a 40-year old soccer mom.

And my 60GB PS3 at Nov launch came with an ethernet cable.

Yeah, just plug in the cable, make a PSN id. And as for the mics, since the PS3 has bluetooth, you can connect basically any mobile phone mic, thats what my friends and I do, and its perfect! Or you can connect a USB mic into one of the USB ports.
