    you could go on youtube and look at general soldering tips, you should do fine because you wont need to work with wires but you might want to find an old board and mess around with it first

    I wouldn't want to have my first soldering experience on a £100 console...... get some practice first

    agreed.. practice on an old pcb of some sort, whether its from a camera, motherboard, whatever... practice melting contacts, cleaning solder and re-soldering contacts...

    if you've never soldered before, take it to an electronics store and get someone to do it for you for 10 bucks...
