Wink Just bought a PS3, what are the best demos?

Didn't buy any games, as its main use is as a Blu-ray player, but what demos do you suggest I try out first? I had a PS3 at launch, but sold it shortly thereafter and bought a Wii.

But anyway, what demos?

In addition to the good suggestions Marvel made, also Check out Heavinly Sword Demo and MotorStorm Demo, oldies but still great games to own

Oh and of course Ratchet and Clank TOD

Well, I am downloading the Turok demo, but will try the Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank demos then.

Resistance! Oh and skate is a fun demo if you don't already have it on 360. Conan is a fun demo, the full game is meh, but the demo is fun.

I used to own Resistance (the only game I bought for the PS3 before).

Skate sounds cool, as I have always enjoyed skating games, since I don't skate anymore.

(Birdhouse board, Willy Santos Singing Frogs edition, Grind King trucks, etc.) At least in games you don't get hurt.

Have fun with Uncharted. If you've never seen it in action before the visuals will slap your face pretty hard the first time you play. ::

Yes, it's VERY pretty, but the gun fights take too long! (in the demo that is)

What? What is all that? I had a Santa Cruz Rob Roscopp board, Indy Trucks, and Santa Cruz Slime Balls (wheels). My other favorite board was my Hosoi Hammerhead (with the same brand trucks and wheeles)...

**PONDERS**

DAMN IT...I DATED MYSELF AGAIN...ARRRRGGGG...

Beyond all that, SKATE is a good demo (and a damn good game!)...Rachet is great as well...
