Thread Starter 
I got 8 PS3 and 360 games for about $70... some were only $4. Two were $7.

The list off the top of my head is

(360) Borderlands 1 and Borderlands 2, Gears of War 3
(PS3) Front Mission Evolved, Crysis 2 Complete, GTAV, Uncharted Drake's Fortune, Destiny Legendary Edition (has all expansions and DLC).

Since I mostly play JRPGs I wanted some more Western style action games. I tried Killzone 3 for PS3 that I got for $5 and really liked it. I think the graphics in Killzone 3 actually hold up really well now. I have all Gears of War games for my 360 now too. I only played maybe 10 hours of the first one but I did enjoy it. It's just really different from what I usually play.

I really like my PS3 and 360... and since I didn't have them when they were current there's a lot of games I missed. Those games are all dirt cheap now. There's so much to play. It's like there's really no point in the PS4 or Xbox One for me since brand new games I can usually play on my PC in Eyefinity at higher fps. And slightly older games I can play on my PS3 or 360. There still aren't very many exclusives for PS4 that appeal to me (I'm not interested in the Xbox One...) The majority of (Japanese) games I usually play generally come out for the Vita too so I can play them that way.

Essentially what it is, i still need to go back sometime and mess around with it more after i beat it. You can do things like lasso a person and drag them behind your horse and tie them up on the train tracks and wait for a train, those weird things you have always wanted to try that are really only normal to do in GTA. There would also be random bobcat attacks, think that is what animal it was. I played it on the 360 but don't think there is any difference between the two, 360 might look nicer? While i'm thinking of it the Ballad of Gay Tony was also a great game.

360 version it is. Apparently the PS3 renders it at a slightly lower resolution.

I'll have to read that article later. I thought the 360 had better graphics anyways, or at least a more powerful GPU.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSX_%27Reality_Synthesizer%27

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenos_(graphics_chip)

The PS3 GPU is basically a Nvidia 7800 GTX and the Xbox 360 GPU is basically an ATI Radeon X1800. (Both of these are so ancient lol).

The RSX and Cell does 778 million polygons/sec (peak) and the Xenos and Xenon (CPU) does 500 million polygons/sec (peak).

RSX is 242 GFLOPS and Xenos was around 212 GFLOPS (GPU only for each of these)

So, actually the PS3 is generally more powerful. However, the problem with this is obviously the wonky, arcane PowerPC architecture of the Cell processor. The PS3 also has a hypervisor, not sure if the 360 does or not, and the PS3 has many more complicated chips to program for in addition to the Cell. So in practice, this is why the games looked more or less the same even though the PS3 was more powerful. Because coding them to run on Cell was so much more difficult, this explains why a lot of games ran better on the 360. Either way, since I have both and a lot of games, it doesn't much matter to me. And of course you probably know all this stuff already, except maybe the specifics of the GPUs, so don't think I'm trying to patronize you. smile.gif

If you want my personal opinion, I'd take the PS3 over the 360 any day if I had to choose. It acts as my Blu Ray player and a damn good one at that. (I just got into buying used Blu Ray movies and have started a small collection.) Moreover, I use Plex Media Server for my anime and the PS3 is nothing short of an incredible streaming media box. I can even stretch old 4:3 anime out to 16:9 (sacrilege I know) on the PS3 and I can't do that on my Chromecast with Plex on my phone. I can also use the PS3 to get games on my PSPs, and for some functions of the PSP (like my PSP Go) I have to use the PS3 to sync a controller to the PSP Go to use it with Bluetooth. Aside from that, all the JRPGs are on PS3... but honestly it gets used as a streaming media player more than anything. thumb.gif

I prefer the ps3 more then the 360, never wanted to pay for online at the time also helped. The 360 had some nicer features but again they didn't really matter to me. I forgot the ps3 is a powerpc, didn't know they were that close though. The ps3 is so much easier to open compared to the 360, just redid my thermal paste in it. I have the first or second model slim, think I bought it with mw2. The 360 is nicer with the whole flashing thing. I actually got it a few years ago with rrod and my fix seems to have been permanent. I've done the most hardware mods on that one out of all my consoles. It is the ugly phat white one, painted it black. Upgraded the heatsinks on it to later model ones. Also removed the fan grill from the metal sheild which has made a huge difference, or at least it feels so.

I love my PS3...I use it nearly as much as my PC. I have the Youtube app paired with my TV, and also use it for Netflix a bit...but I play lots of games cause they are just so cheap...Microplay has "3-packs" of decent common games, for as little as $5.99 (Canadian of course) to $12.99...Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, LA Noir, Red Dead Redemtpion, etc...that kind of stuff. Plus, average price for PS3 stuff there is $5...don't have many cause I haven't had my PS3 all that long, but I think I have about 15 games or so, including Killzone 3 (and 2) which I am also giving a playthrough right now. It's OK...it's really tough playing shooters on console, honestly. But since it's single player I've been tolerating the controls and getting some enjoyment out of it. I play Gran Turismo 6 a lot still (have 5 too)...play some of my PS1 games on the PS3. One of the best gaming purchases I've made since I got it for $60 in the box. I haven't picked anything up for it recently though because I've just tied up some money in another PC (Kijiji buying / selling) and other things...but I plan to grab a lot of PS3 / 360 stuff over the next year or so while everything is so cheap. Not really retro, but grabbed 7 retail box PC games today for < $15...only retro one was Starsiege Tribes...for $0.50 lol Then a couple of the newer Sam and Max releases, Painkiller (the first one), Godfather II...Warhammer Space Marine...

If you think Killzone 3 is bad for you because of the controls, imagine how it is for me, Mr. JRPG and 2d fighting game player. The only games I know how to play well are old Final Fantasy style games and ancient Capcom/SNK fighters. The last FPS I was really really into on PC was Unreal Tournament 2004 and before that, Quake 3 Arena. I never played them competitively, always just single player or LAN play with my brother in UT. So suffice to say I'm absolutely awful at Killzone 3 biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif I'm playing on easy mode and still die and take huge amounts of damage lol. I was actually just playing it and turned it off at this part with snipers in buildings, I had the hardest time finding them and killing them, almost killed them all and one behind me got me right in the head before I could turn around mad.gif

I really do like the game though, the gameplay is solid and well designed, the controls aren't bad and the graphics still look pretty good. Just not a genre I'm used to.

I got the Destiny thing that has all the expansions and stuff and I wanna try it but it's updating first and the updates are 8.6GB. The game better damn well be good if that's the case.
