    Do I need it? and if I do where does it go? I have a multimeter if that helps.

    No-one is going to be able to help with that pic. It just looks like a black blur.

    I think I would first try to develop your photography skills before attempting soldering :rofl2:

    No, you don't need it, it's just a spare part Sony ships loose inside the case :P

    In all seriousness, that definitely looks like an electronic part that came off from somewhere, but unless you've had PS3s apart before and recognize the part as being in a few specific spots, you'll just have to check the entire board for some pads with solder on them but no component which looks to have the same shape as the part.

    That part is also upside down in the picture. If there were any markings to recognize what type of component it is, they would be on the other side.

    Just for reference it's tiny. Here it is next to an AA battery battery.png

    It looks like a capacitor. It's not absolutely vital if the other ones pick up the slack. Worst case: something doesn't power on.
