Re: PS3 or PS4

Apr 3, 2013

I never had a PS3, and with the thought that I'd have to repurchase digitally any of my PS/PS2 games to play on PS3, I'm going to just wait for PS4. I'm sure they'll have a way to play PS, PS2, and PS3 games (probably using Gaikai), just won't be able to use your disks. So I'll just hold out. 

 

Add to that, that the PS4 will add to my PS Vita's functionality.

 

So yeah, no PS3 even with it's vast library for me. PS4 and I'll wait for the Sony exclusives to be playable on it, as I've probably played every other game worth playing on the 360.

 

Hope that made sense.

Not the case with PS3.

 

The 60GB Phat is still the best version of PS3 and has more features and functions and ports then any other.

 

The launch PS4 may very well go the same route and have more then any future versions.

 

Also my 60GB PS3 was the most stable of any I have had since, and one of the 3 60Gb PS3's I have owned was quiter then any other PS3 out there.  Gotta love the disc slot sliding the disc straight in, not spinning it in like the cheaper ones do.

Love that sexy chrome trim, 4 USB ports, and the Phat PS3 actually takes up less room then the "Slim" version.

The slim is lighter and slightly skinnier but it is wider and deeper!!

 

All the slim PS3's I have owned have frozen within the first few days of use at least once.  My first 60GB PS3 didnt freeze for months after purchase.  (I think they had more usable memory back then though).

 

Even my current 60GB phat runs like a champ and has yet to freeze on me one time, fingers crossed.

 

60GB FTW!!!

Glad to see new members of the PS family, but its sad you missed all the incredible games on PS3 that can not be played on any other console out there.

 

Hopefully one day you can play them on PS4, way off in some theoretical future.

 

Just dont play the sequels until you play the originals!!!

Can't read your mind, don't know what you like. Shouldn't be up to me to tell you what to do with your money.
I get what I want, that should help.

I'd hardly say I'm new to the PS family. Thanks though.

 

Been playing since PS didn't have an analog controller and they had DVD like cases. Had an arcade stick for PS and GT3 race wheel. I just never got around to getting a PS3, since I got a launch 360 (didn't feel like paying the high launch price for PS3 with having 5 kids).

This is the reason you can still find BROKEN 60 gigs selling for over 150 bucks on ebay.

It really depends on what you want. I'm pretty sure the PS4 at launch will be the PS4 a few years from now. I don't think it will shed features as time goes on like the PS3 did. That said, I'd go with the PS3. Tons of games, good price and lots of potential friends to meet online.

Assuming you don't have the money for both, then get the PS3 first. There's more games for it and the PS4 will likey not as many launch titles available. So for the amount of games that are avaialble and will be available, the PS3 is the better choice. Yes the PS4 looks awsome, but it will likely take some time to get a good line-up of games. It always does with launch games. So yeah, get the PS3 now. Get into it and decide later if you want the PS4.

Also until we know for sure that you can play Starhawk on PS4, you must get a PS3 and this game.

 

I'll let you know when I approve of your PS4 ownership.
