I might sound a bit ignorant, but I dont know much about computers. The last system I owned was a PS1 and I'm going to get a PS3 when more come out. Anyways, I still don't really understand how the internet connection works. So when I first plug in my PS3 to a TV, will I instintaniously be connected to the internet and is it free? And if I do connect to the internet, does that mean that I'll be able to play with other people online? Also, what exactly is broadband? Told that I'm clueless about technology.
If I dont have a HDTV, will it make my PS3 graphics seem like PS2? Also, if I don't have a widescreen, will some of the screen be cut out or will the PS3 adjust accordingly to the TV size? Thanks
