So long story short I've just been thinking about skipping the next video game generation and waiting a good couple of years while the prices drop and the consoles get solidified. I'm already well integrated into the Xbox ecosystem. But, there are some great exclusives on the PlayStation 3 that I've been wanting to try for some time. I've seen the 250 GB console for only $269 which is pretty low, and have contemplated enjoying the best of both systems. However, I have literally close to no exposure to the PlayStation universe other than I've occasionally played it. Should I get the 250 GB console or 500 GB console, what should I know about the PlayStation and the PSN network to fully get integrated? Hit me with all the goods and information about how to enjoy the experience.

Go for the 500gb model trust me. If you get PS Plus you'll soon eat that disk space up!!
I too got a PS3 as I'm not getting a PS4 until Sep next year. Best choice ever. Second hand games only set you back about £5-10!!!
I've found the PS3 games to be better gfx wise to the Xbox 360 I had before...

As the above user mentioned, you definitely want to pick up the larger HDD model - PS Plus Membership (which you should definitely invest into!!) will eat your harddrive space alive! Quality games are easily 10+GB each - and that's not considering additional DLC for those games. For $50/year, PS Plus will stack you with games right off the bat and will continue to do so, and ultimately pay for itself in no time- buy it!
I think you are making a smart move by holding off until next-gen consoles drop in prices- in the mean while there are plenty of amazing PS3 games that will keep you busy - franchises such as Killzone, Infamous, Resistance, Little Big Planet, Heavy Rain, God of War, and of course the amazing Uncharted series- on top of those you have all those amazing indie games such as Journey, Flower, etc for under $10
You're going to love the PS3 system- and to start feel free to add me to your friends list- Res215dg

Only reason I got a PS3 was for exclusives, they're soo good! I'll stick to Xbox for multi platform games, LIVE I feel is a little tighter service than PSN and the achievements hook me in.
Biggest downfall with PS3 is that the PS store is about as slow and buggy as they come, and how they handle updates is plain horrible. Sometimes it will take me 30min from the power on to game play if there's an update.
Other than that though its a great system.

The franchises I would personally recommend to start playing from the beginning are Resistance, Infamous, and God of War. You can get away with playing Uncharted in the middle as there is no real connection between the games in the series aside from reoccurring characters. Killzone is meant for it's gameplay (tons of weapons and action, TONS!), the story is secondary to the gameplay and as a result, you can play Killzone in any order without really missing anything from the story.
Also for racing games, be sure you look into WipeOut HD and Motorstorm - 2 great, unique racers - a nice change from games like Forza/Need for Speed/Grand Turismo
