    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 116/81/D=1433) You should have mentioned that what types of programme (games etc) does the playstation3 video games contain. However, if there is no nudity in it and there is not complete picture of living beings and music then its business is lawful without any doubt; otherwise it is better to avoid.
