So after 6 years, thinking of getting a PS3 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
You strike me as being a cautious chap, 6 yrs! Give it another 6yrs biggrin.gif

For the sake of our sanity, buy a used one.

As a side note, I bought a PS3 1&1/2 yrs back, and let me point out how the graphics really are truly **** if you for example compare PS3 Skyrim to PC, and not only that, but it LAGS. It's in the 30-40 FPS range all the time, so far from smooth. Some glitches were fixed with Skyrim patches, but I didn't play anything else too much on it.

Heavy Rain, Uncharted, and MGS are worth the cost of a PS3. Heavy Rain is more of an experience you will never forget than a game. Most if not all of the games I played on my 360 were available on the PS3 and the PS3 had some exclusives that I could not play on the 360. I think the only games I played on my 360 that was not available for play on the PS3 was a couple HALO games and Too Human.

Man I am So glad that I spotted this thread.. I'm in the same boat. I was thinking of getting a PS3 especially since: The price is low, 165€ from Amazon for the Extra Slim one, the Exclusive titles... and I would only get it for the exclusives... , ohh.. who can forget... the upcoming GTA:V thumb.gif

I must admit I think sometimes, it would be easier getting a console every 8 years then keep my pc upgraded and cheaper in the long run.

  • Journey
  • Metal Gear Solid 4
  • Yakuza series

and as you already mentioned, the Uncharted series.

Great choices here. If you don't have an xbox 360, add red dead redemption to that list. Also you'll want to play your ps3 on an lcd tv, every pc monitor I've played mine on has made the xbox 360 or ps3 image look horrible.

And games like god of war 3, uncharted 2 and 3, they still look great period.
