Convince me to buy a Playstation 3.

22 replies 273 views Edited Apr 28, 2013
I've been pondering buying one, but I am concerned it would be a bad purchase. I've owned a PS3 back in 08 and I was not impressed. I have been exclusively playing my Xbox 360, console-wise. I am an avid PC gamer.

One reason I've been considering it is because of all the classic games that came out earlier this generation can be picked up for cheap.

Convince me.

I know about PS+, free online, etc.

And please do not bash Microsoft. I just want a mature conversation about this.

Welcome to the PlayStation Communtiy.

 

I'm not going to convince you, if you can I'd wait for the PS4 come Christmas!

 

Having said that you'd be missing out on some rather good games like The Last of Us, the decision is yours, not ours!

The highlighted ones were in my opinion especially good, so yes, if you haven't played those you should.

 

There are also some great PSN titles that like Journey that are well worth getting too.

 

Decisions decisions huh!

If you want to play those games, then by all means purchase a PlayStation 3 and those games with it. I can vouch for Uncharted and MGS4 and tell you that they are phenomenal games. :smileyhappy:

 

Also, the PS4 will have an online service call Gaikai. With Gaikai, you will be able to stream games directly to your PS4 console. It is rumored that PS3 games will be available via the Gaikai service, so I'd plan on buying a PS4 if those rumors turn out to be true once more information about the console is released.

 

Also, welcome to the forums. :smileyhappy:

you can buy the GoW bundle, get 6 god of war games, a red, 500gb superslim ps3.  uncharted series is amazing (reason i bought my ps3).  Infamous, and other first party games.  has BluRay.

depends on what community. if your talking CoD, then itll be the same on xbox. if your talking resistance, killzone, or uncharted. it will be mature people smacking talking, and not little boys raging.
