Thinking about uploading gameplays to Youtube

I've been a big gamer for quite a few years, have played countless days on CoD, NHL, Battlefield, etc. and subscribe to a number of gamers on Youtube (Tmartn, 2BC, Ozerec to name a few). I've always been curious about uploading gameplays to Youtube but never curios enough to actually do it. Well, with Black Ops 2 coming out and being a long time CoD player, I think it's about time I finally start doing it but I don't really know exactly what I need to do so.

I've uploaded a few RCT3 videos to Youtube a couple years ago and I've also uploaded a few NHL 13 clips but both of those I was able to do right from my laptop or computer, not from my PS3. I was wondering if you fine folks have had any experience running a Youtube channel and posting gameplays and if you could tell me what I need to get started?

A few questions I have are as follows:

What do I need to record gameplays from my PS3 and which one(s) would you recommend?

My laptop is only capable of viewing 720p videos, can I still upload videos in 1080p?

I'm considering doing commentaries as well, do I need a special kind of microphone or can I just use my Sony Bluetooth headset that I use to talk online?

Anything else I should know or need?

I plan on doing Black Ops 2 stuff along with some NHL 13 stuff like HUT pack openings. My laptop is a Dell Vostro 3550 if that helps at all.

All feedback is welcome.

Might need some sort of TV tuner card on your computer to do that

Get a video capture card

Everything is there for setting up PS3 recording

For the recording of the video, you'd need a PVR of some type.

As for talking, I think most people who record their stuff usually add the voice over after recording and handling the video on their computer. Any type of mic that works for your computer would work for that.. As for the program to record your audio, no idea

If/when you decide to do this, you're going to have to spring for an HD capture device. No one will watch standard def videos. Hauppage seems to be the way to go in that regard.
