    I've been contemplating buying a PS3 lately, and I need to know the oppinions of people that actually own the game.

    I'd like to get the games for War for Cybertron, Modern Warfare 2, and for the Blu-Ray DVDs, but is it worth the 300 bucks?

    Is there other great games that I could buy so I wouldn't just be dropping 300 bucks on two game? Is there any severe technical problems? I did a fair amount of research on my own and it sounds promising, but I could use advise on the matter from people who actually own the console and a fair amount of games.

    In the end, is it worth the 300 bucks?

    i just recently had to replace my laser on the ps3. it's the first console that has ever failed on me and i've owned pretty much every console. my atari 7800 still works. despite that, i'd get it over xbox (i have that too). the 360's been unplugged for months.

    the fact that it plays blu rays and online play is free is what sold me. it's worth it.

    if you have an extra $50, i think gamestop is selling the 250gb version for $350 with 2 games until sunday.

    ..oh and don't forget god of war

    Eww, do the industry a favor and skip Modern Warfare 2.

    As for whether or not you should get a PS3. Well its certainly worth getting over a 360, by far.

    Has several really solid exclusive titles, from Uncharted 1 and 2 to inFamous, LittleBigPlanet, Demon's Souls (best game on the system), Heavy Rain, to upcoming releases such as Twisted Metal and the inevitable Uncharted 3.

    Not to mention if you're interested in bluray discs (they aren't dvds or bluray dvds) its a pretty cheap and solid player.

    Free online play is also a plus.

    And Move actually looks like a decent add-on (if a bit overpriced).

    It is worth it. Go forth and buy one!

    Hell, a 360 is also a pretty good buy, so really, it's all win-win anyway.

    Well, the only games you'll be missing out are the microsoft published games, and maybe a few others, but it evens out with the mentioned exclusive games above. So, it's really up to you.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    Another thing I'm worried about is whats going to happen when Sony releases it's next gaming console and the PS3 is made obsolete. I already have two gaming consoles that I have spent money on, and I'm thinking about getting a third. I was wondering because the PS3's already been out for 4 years, should I just wait for the PS4 or whatever to come out?

    Sony's got at least a 10 year plan for the PS3 (hell the PS2 is still alive and kicking), so you've another 6 or so years ahead of ya with it.

    Worth it without a doubt. You'd be doing yourself down to only but it for Modern Warfare and Transformers. The PS3 has an extensive library of fantastic titles and brilliant exclusives well worth checking out and even more on the way!
    Plus bluray and free online and netflix streaming!

    If you were going to buy a new console you could do so much worse than a PS3. So so much worse.

    I know that sounded really sarcastic, but it was meant honestly :( 

    If you arent already on the way to go buy one, what are you waiting for?


    :lol 

    Come on, not even in the top 5.

    Sold

    Thanks everybody. Sounds like I'm gettin' a PS3. The great games, Blu-Ray, the one year warranty and the PSN all sound promising.

    Oh I base mine on metacritic, since I dont get to play on a PS3 all that often.
    Personally, I thought to call something like Demons Souls the best PS3 title is short-selling the rest of the quality line up.

    You seem to have taken that as a knock against the game, not what I intended. Poorly worded as it may have been, I actually meant that to pick a metacritic 90 game like Demons Souls and put it above things like MGS4, Uncharted 1 & 2, LBP, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, inFamous and more is a bit insulting to them.
    Among them yes, very easily, but not at the top of them all.

    Maybe Im just a big ol' hater for Atlus games, but either way my post was worded poorly, and I apologise.

    Uncharted 2 is the only correct answer.

    Don't worreh about a PS4 or anything. Many improvements will probably come in updates on your PS3 when you get it. It's probably a PS3.5 by now :lol
