In game chat, messaging people outside of the game, web surfing and online text entry.

Some people have installed an additional operating system namely a linux based one and are using their PS3's like computers. All rounder.

You will need in game chat to really enjoy multiplayer.

No big expense required here, just get a decent PC headset. That keypad makes a big difference though for messaging ... I must pick one up today!

Grabbed one a couple days ago... and it just clips onto the gamepad. It has its own power switch so you can turn it off when not needed & a button you can press that makes it act in a way similiar to the touchpad on any modern notebook pc. It doesnt block the R1/2 or L1/2 buttons either. Typing with it is a hell of a lot easier then the old gamepad method.

@Bloodwrych spot on with that, 100%.

The keypad is an extremely cool thing to have for PS3 users, especially if you want to msg someone from your list - it takes ages with the system's on-screen-keyboard whereas this one by Sony is a pure magic. Picked one up last weekend, very good purchase.
