Decided to buy a PS3, was hoping for a price cut on Feb 20 but it didn't happen.

- what is the best deal right now on a console? Is 500gb worth it?
- I think I want to get PS+, but the EU version. How can I pay for that in the US. I tried looking for prepaid PSN cards but didn't find any.

And I need some game recommendations. I'm not a hardcore gamer, I use my Xbox mostly for Forza and Netflix. For PS3 I want to get games that are special and unique. After doing some reading, I've decided on following -

Journey, flow, flower, as part of the collection. All 3 look wonderful.
Heavy Rain
Ico and SOTC collection

What else? I'm not very good at shooters, which is why I don't really play halo. Is Uncharted worth getting?

Most definitely, YES. At least 2 and 3.

Don't skip Uncharted 1. It is very solid gameplay wise with above average visuals (though tearing is an issue. The main reason to play it though is that you are introduced to the main characters for the first time, which is a huge part of the charm of the series. The rest of your games on your list look good, but I'd add

- God of War megaton collection to it as well (five games excellent games)
- Valkyrie Chronicles
- The Pinball Arcade (PSN title recreates actual pinball games)
- a good fighting game for online competition (Tekken Tag 2, Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, etc.)

As for Euro PS+, you would have to make a Euro sub account on your PS3 and somehow get a PS+ code from that region to input since your American credit card won't work. Maybe Amazon will sell you a Euro PS+ card, I dunno. Another option is try and buy a Euro PS+ subscription directly from the Euro PSN store using PayPal. Again, I don't know if it works.

InFamous 1 & 2 are excellent open world games with a superhero twist.

Looks like Amazon UK has instant euro PSN cards:

At least their are a ton of demos to download like the first 2 Uncharted games.
I can see why you'd want the European Plus. Next month's update is pretty sweet for Europe.

The US gets completely screwed on PS Plus. I hate that I bought a year subscription.

500 gigs FTL.
