    Even though I just bought a Wii U only in November.
    And now all of my Xbox friends are gonna see this and cry.

    So all of you long time PS3 players/owners, what games can you recommend?
    Uncharted and Super Sony Bros/PlayStation All-Stars are at the top of my list, but are other games like Little Big Planet worth it?

    How could you recommend MGS4 but not recommend the MGS HD collection?

    Arkham City
    Heavy Rain
    MGS4
    King of Fighters 13
    War For Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron
    Mortal Kombat vs DC


    And lots of Blu Ray movies. If you have an HDTV, you won't believe the difference between dvd and BD. The jump in quality is as big or bigger than VHS to dvd.

    ... Wait, I've contemplated getting MGS HD Collection on my Xbox, or is better to just have all four of those games on the one console?

    Also, I'm getting the 12GB.

    What type of genre do you enjoy? Anyway, for exclusives I'd recommend:


    Tales of Graces F
    Ni No Kuni (coming the 22nd--assuming you live in NA)
    Metal Gear Solid 4
    Journey
    Unfinished Swan
    Ratchet @ Clank HD Collection
    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
    InFAMOUS 1 & 2
    Resistance


    And I'd definitely recommend looking into The Last of Us! I'll post more later...

    I pretty much enjoy any genre. Games I already own though I probably won't go near.

    I don't have one myself, but got plenty of friends with em. Not a bad system. One thing I can suggest, is if you buy anything off of PSN, DO NOT use a credit card. Buy a prepaid PSN card at Gamestop. PSN's security is a joke.

    You're gonna buy a PS3!? What a terrible way to start the new year aha jk

    I don't know how important it is to you, but new consoles are expected to be announced. You got MS doing a countdown to E3 already even though its 158 days away. New 720 could be out by the end of the year. Maybe Sony will announced the PS4 as well at E3 and be released next year, IDK. Read PS4 Dev kits were sent out though.

    Anyways, if you do go and get the PS3, you'll at least have a PS3 library to play with while waiting for PS4 games to be released post launch.... but then again, those games will be cheaper later and you'll have that $200+ you spent on the PS3 to go towards the PS4.

    As for what games to get, just stick with exclusives. Looking at the exclusive games listed above, most of them are quite old. If you've been thinking about getting MGS HD, then maybe just get it for the PS3 so you can have all 4 on one console. Especially with the new MGS coming. For sure it'll be on a PS, just can't say for sure if it'll also be released on the next xbox.

    Also, I would recommend getting PS+. Just try it out for a month, you can get a 30 Day Trial off eBay for $5. You'll be able to play full title games for free. That doesn't mean that you'll own them (like gamefly), but at least you can get all the trophies without having to resell the game afterwards.

    That's funny, because I've had a PS3 since launch and a credit card on account, no problems.

    ANYWAY, any MGS games or God of War games. Infamous is decent. LittleBigPlanet is amazing.

    Fair enough, here's some more personally recommended ones:


    Ico Collection
    Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix (if it ever gets released outside of Japan)
    Heavy Rain
    Valkyria Chronicles (MUST HAVE)

    It is a joke, PROOF. Beside having my CC info stolen after 2 years of me deleting it from my account because Sony had backed it up, I recently got an automatic renewal charge. I paid $5 for a 30 Day Trial off of eBay. I went to redeem it, but it wouldn't let me redeem the code unless I had a CC. This had to do with automatic renewal. So I typed it in, redeemed my code, and immediately went into my account to turn off the automatic renewal. 30 days later, I get an email from PayPal saying that I was charged $17.99 for 3 months of PS+. I called them up about, but they said it'll take at least 15 days to hear anything back.

    Little Big Planet and LBP Karting are a lot of fun especially if you're playing with friends.

    And I suppose just any of the HD remakes? And hell no would I give Sony my credit card info, not after the hack.

    And yes.. I'm getting a 12GB console. But it's extremely cheap, about $170 US.
