Playstation 4, or Playstation 3 and Vita?

12 replies 178 views Edited Oct 23, 2013
I have a dilemma. 

My sons birthday is around the corner and I have a PS4 paid off through Gamestop, and a few dollars extra in store credits. I already own a PS3, Vita and a slew of games for both. Most of the games we own are physical but we also have quite an extensive digital selection as well. 

Should I hold off on buying the PS4 and get another PS3/Vita for my boy, or just stick with my original plan and get a PS4? What would YOU do?

Sound off with you're opinion.

PS4 and a Vita just like Amnalehu said and give it to your boy for a late birthday present or something. Plus if anything you can get the Vita now and he can have that to play with until the PS4 comes out, and when the PS4 comes out he can still play the Vita, so its win win situation

Hello fellow Father! Quite the problem you have there.

Buy your son a Vita, give him your existing PS3. Keep the PS4 pre-order. There will be very little for Junior to play in PS4 if you give that to him right away and the Vita alone as a new gift with the PS3 as a kind of ritualistic hand off should be more than enough.

Agreed.  Your son will love the PS3 and Vita, you will love the PS4.  Everyone is happy!

Permanently left the PS Forums because of a trolling MVP and poor moderation.

That's genius.  Then, the PS4 can be "Playing with Dad Time", and giving him the PS3 allows for, "Dad, I can't get through ___.  Can you help me?"

 

Great idea!

I would say the Vita and ps3.  If you think his habit will be to play the vita away from home a decent amount.  If he plays the vast majority of his time at home I would say the ps4.  Obviously the ideal solution is the ps4 and Vita but your original post doesnt have that as an option as it would be about 200 more dollars plus games.  His habits should dictate the best option for you.
