    Im wanting to be able to record some of my online gameplay. I have done some reading on forums about capture cards, but I have no idea what I need and what will work on my ps3.

    I found this on ebay, will something like this work?

    Any info or advise would be greatly helpful. Thanks in advance.

    I thought about that too, but I was just afraid that the battery would go dead waiting on me to do something good.:cool:

    Honestly as long as the PC has decent spec's to keep up the FPS I dont see why it wouldnt work, my only question would whats the quality going to be like cause you either are going into a Composite RCA or SVIDEO connection. I dont have a PS3 so not sure if that type of connection comes out of the box. I know some people I think use a Dazzle which does the same thing, they may make one that does component. Otherwise if you got a desktop you could always get some type of tuner card with inputs.

    Thanks for the info....I think im gonna give it a try. At least if I dont like it im out less than $20, and I will know what to look for when I buy a better one.

    I have done some looking around on forums and as you suspected the quality seems to be a little lackluster on this particular cap card. but again I guess you cant expect alot for that price.

    So im guessing that you can edit your videos in windows movie maker?

    yeah you can edit video's with movie maker, cut, add titles, audio track etc... as long as whatever you use saves it in a format compatible with movie maker.
