Should I buy a PS3? Too late? Or right on time? - Page 2

post #11 of 38
Sure you wouldn't want a PC? I bet some ocn members here can put together a decent rig for $400~ or so... Then you can fold 24/7 on that. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Otherwise, it's mostly up to you, wait a year, or get it now. If you're asking for my personal opinion on this, I'd get it now if I was you. wink.gif

Get one. PS4 should be out around this time next year. Get a slim off Craigslist and enjoy. Lots of good games.

Plus good gaming comps aren't THAT expensive, and you can upgrade every month or 2 with a better component which extends your pc performance.

And when you want to play Madden? Or NHL? Or GT5? Or Halo? Or Uncharted?

There are still exclusives, they are the only games I buy for consoles, and those alone still make it worth owning one or both if you are a gamer.

Nothing like Madden for a few hours with buddies before the game kicks off on a sunday afternoon.

Also to add if you get one, you also have about 6 years of great games to play and I also believe that it is backwards compatible with some PS2 games.

I still keep my xbox for late nights with nhl and halo. All of my friends are still pretty dedicated to their consoles so it makes it worth it to even just hop on and screw around in a party while playing a game. I wont however try to convert anyone else from consoles to computers. I had a good friend of mine talked into building a computer, but he was short money, so I gave him some parts about 3 months ago and haven't heard from him since. mad.gif

On a PC you have over 20 years of great games to play, just saying. lachen.gif

Well obviously. I too am contemplating on getting a PS3 real soon. Everytime I think about it though, I end up dumping more and more money into my rig redface.gif

If I got a PS3, I wouldn't be doing that as often. Just pay for games, no hardware.

Hahaha, I already have a pretty expensive gaming pc rig. Don't get me wrong, I still mainly game on PC, but these exclusives are hard to pass up, and that bundle deal was just too tempting...

If I was to buy a console mainly for the exlusives, I'd have to buy a 360. I just love Halo, and with the upcoming release of Halo 4, i mean, c'mon biggrin.gif

GT5 is pretty awesome, only reason to get a PS3 IMO.
