NFL fans have held their collective breath waiting for the football season to start—for more than one reason—but there is plenty to look forward to this year, especially if you own a PlayStation 3. Sony has teamed up with satellite television provider DirecTV to bring its NFL Sunday Ticket package to the PlayStation 3.

NFL Sunday Ticket is exclusive to DirecTV and includes up to 14 NFL games every Sunday, full HD for every game, and DirecTV’s Red Zone Channel. If you like football, this probably sounds great. But the price tag may put some PS3 owners off a bit, seeing as a season is more than a brand spanking new PS3. The season price will cost $339.95 USD for those who do not have access to DirecTV. If you do have access, the service will cost $50 and your PS3 will serve as an additional receiver.

Sports fans should also check out MLB.TV and NHL GameCenter on the PS3.
