thinking about a PS3
    #8898520 - 09/08/08 10:31 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'm thinking about picking up a PS3 but I'm unsure if I should shell out the extra money for the larger HD.

opinions?

I have an 80 gig. It's top notch. Ive never heard any relevant complaints about the ps3. Just do it, you'll love it.

at this point your actually better off just wanting 6months-1year.  it won't be to much longer before they release a new sku thats actually better not worse...well i hope so anyway.  plus most of the good games are still a freakin year away almost.  there's some good games coming no doubt, but you might as well wait till next chrismas and get it all at discount

i dont buy anything but quality games. I have like 8 games, and have plans to buy more soon. There are more than enough GREAT ps3 titles to keep you interested.

i thought that too a few months ago but then i realized i was sadly mistaken :frown:  maybe my attention span is smaller than most peoples :shrug:  tho im mostly talking about exclusives here

ive already played and beat most of the triple A titles...which sux.  there's still a few i havn't played tho because they are such short games the video stores won't even rent them...not worth there time and money because people beat them so fast:(

I love my PS3.  Buy the 60gig model if you can find it.  It has hardware emulation for PS2 games, not software emulation.  I've yet to find a PS2 game that my 60gig won't run flawlessly where I've heard them having issues with the software emulation.  But maybe somebody else knows more about it then me.

Anyway, I say again...I love my PS3.

PS3 doesnt have that much more in graphics then a 360. if you have the HDMI cables for 360 the HD is MAD nice too. And 360 is cheaper, has a wider variety oh games, its more spacelly, less heavy. The only thing PS3 has on 360 is free online... but thats y 360's online is better.

:lol: it's the price it should have been all along. Im sure you'll end up spending more than you ever would on a ps3. Buying replacement consoles and what not :lol:

why?

it's all about the games anyways.  and like somebody else pointed out PS3 just doesn't have the games.

sony shot themselves in the foot with their arrogance and lost all of their exclusive developers.  seems most of 'em have found their way to xbox.  there are quite a few great games already out on the xbox, and it seems there are many more on the horizon.

Everyone always talks about these exclusive titles like theyre actually worth a shit. Leave it up to microsoft to buy a license and run it into the goddamn ground. It was the same situation with the original xbox.

what are you talking about?

a console is really only as good as it's first and second party developers.

what licenses has microsoft run into the ground?

and it wasn't really the same situation with the original xbox at all... the original box struggled to get exclusives.. especially from the japanese developers because they didn't think this new console would last...

but now the 360 has picked up quite a few of those japenese developers and they have jumped ship directly from sony.

eh.. i guess it's a silly argument because it's a matter of taste.

but i'm not gonna let that stop me! :rofl:

because personally, i do see a lot of awesome games on that list...

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Beautiful Katamari
Blue Dragon
Blue Dragon 2
Fable II
Gears of War 2
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
Halo 3
Halo Wars
Halo: Chronicles
Lost Odyssey
Star Ocean: The Last Hope
Tales of Vesperia
Viva Piñata: Party Animals
Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise

plus there are some on that list that aren't mentioned.

no.. not all of the games on the list are good... there are plenty of crap games... i never said exclusive = good.

but, take a look at sony's exclusives, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_3_games

i was tough pressed to find 2 or 3 exclusive games i'd be interested in playing.

it's no secret though that when sony decided to charge 600 bucks for a console and nobody bought it, that their exclusive developers migrated towards the 360.

the ps2 thrived on their exclusive titles like final fantasy, grand theft auto, star ocean, etc... sony lost all of that.

maybe you are just one of the bitter ps3 users that bought a 600 dollar console and fight nail and teeth to justify your poorly thought out purchase?

Hahaha poorly thought out purchase eh? You get what you pay for. Ps3 is just a superior system, and sony has always has superior titles. Im so bitter that i havent had to replace my console. Im so bitter about my blu ray player. Im so bitter that my system is more powerful. The games you picked out of that list are a bunch of repeats. And halo is a joke of a franchise. You just keep paying to play online, clearly you can see that in the long run youre paying more for an inferior system. Bill Gates is laughing at you, and so am i. :ilold:

XBOX to me has never stood out. It seems like Microsoft does the bare minimum to get by without bringing anything new to the table.

While Nintendo and Sony are trying new things Microsoft gives us more of the same. They took the two things they were already good at (online and graphics) and focused on that.

Right now they have the biggest game library but it's at the cost of quality and it was the same last generation. And as far as exclusives go I don't even care about XBOX. I can name 4 I was interested in; Halo, Perfect Dark, Ninja Giaden, Fable and they've already ruined the first 2.

Shoulda stopped right there. :tongue:

Personally, I think it will always be just a mater of personal preference.  Myself, I have always hated the x-box controller.  It is clunky and unmanageable and never felt right to me.  As far as games go, theres plenty of great games for either system to justify a purchase.  Theres a few xbox exclusives I'd like to  have access to, but nothing I can't live without.  And the one game that has had the most replay value for me of any game I have ever owned on any console is a PS3 exclusive.  I'm sure thats just a coincidence, but it is a fact.

Oh, and Blu-ray won the hi-def battle.  Thats a point in the PS3 corner, as is free on-line play.

Perfect dark was a TRAVESTY. I'd play the n64 version for the rest of my life, as long as i never had to play that sequal. Microsoft are a bunch of thieves, they came out with that terrible controller which was a frankenstein of stolen ideas. Only to make the controller s, a BLATENT dual shock rip off.

you're speaking nonsense.

every generation of consoles is different.  sony DID have superior titles, but now they just have 360's hand-me-downs and a handful of mediocre exclusives. 

yes the PS3 has more graphical power than the 360, but if graphics are the deciding factor in what is a quality game and what isn't, then you have been mislead.

blu-ray is nonsense as well, you probably don't even own a television that is capable of an output of 1080p.  blu-ray is just some gimmicky BS they used to sell their console and sony's movies.  1080p is hardly a step up from 1080i and not worthy of an entirely new medium.  they made suckers out of of the lot of ya.  plus if the ability to watch MOVIES is what attracts you to a particular VIDEO GAME CONSOLE then that alone should be evidence of a lackluster console with lackluster titles.

as far as online play goes... i have no problem paying 12 bucks a month for it, because it seems i get what i pay for.  xbox's online infrastructure is much more established and solid and i never have trouble finding a game.

and still you have yet to name a SINGLE game on the PS3 that makes it worthy of purchase!

and i repeat... it's all about the games anyways.  all of this console loyalty is silly.  i'm giving my objective opinion here and what i look for are fun games.  i love my ps2... but sony just fucked up on the ps3 and all of the games i loved on my ps2 have found their way to xbox.  with this particular generation of consoles it seems to me that the 360 came out on top.

it seems your opinions are based on mostly nothing.

i'd agree with nintendo attempting to bring some innovation to console gaming... but exactly what innovation has the PS3 brought to console gaming?

the sixaxis controller that they poorly ripped off from nintendo?

online console gameplay that xbox live virtually created or at the very least revolutionized?

ok, yeah i didn't really dig the new perfect dark either.  i get the feeling is was rushed to make out for the consoles launch.

but i disagree with the controller bit...

360 has a much more comfortable controller.  the joysticks are in practical locations  (rather than with the dual shock how you have to reach over the d-pad that nobody uses to get to the left joystick), the triggers are much more intuitively placed.  i don't know... the dual shock feels archaic... i guess probably because it is.

I honestly that you knew what you were talking about. And being the true gamer that i am of course i have a tv that is up to par. Youre hella jealous right now, and it's showing. HD DVD is the gimmick. Blu ray has already proven superior.

It's so archaic that they brought it over to next gen? C'mon dude, it's jsut a perfect example of getting it right the 1st time. Something microsoft has NEVER experienced.

hd-dvd AND blu-ray are both gimmicky for reasons i've already stated.

i can't believe you bought a 2 to 3 thousand dollar 1080p television to play your ps3 and watch your petty blu-ray movies. :rofl:

developers don't even know how to take advantage of the PS3s graphical capabilities because i guess it is a bitch to program for.

note the ugly interface and bland background and all of the detail being in the forefront (what little detail there is anyway, i mean)

Chill!  Both systems are pretty sweet, no reason to be belligerent. My brother bought the xbox, which has a whole lot to bring to the table, and I just recently bought a ps3, for which you can say the same.  The PS3 definitely had some launch issues, but it's future has been looking up lately.  All I'm going to say is... GOD OF WAR.

This was fun when you were making sense, now it's just pathetic. Youre a fanboy as are most 360 owners. You have no real reason why you think your system is better so you just make up things to make you feel better about wasting your money. My tv is awesome, and it was 1700 bucks. Im not gonna continue this "discussion" with you b/c you have no clue what youre talking about. Have fun flushing money down the toilet.

I also have the proper TV to get the most out of my PS3.  In fact, I bought them on the same day.  And watching one of the new effects-heavy blockbuster movies on blu-ray is phenomenal.  Sure, it wasn't the primary reason to buy the console, but its a nice touch.  And of course the games look nice also.

and still you have yet to name a SINGLE game on the PS3 that makes it worthy of purchase!



A couple nice exclusives...
Resistance:Fall of man (and hopefully the sequel will live up to its lineage in November)
MGS4

But buying a consloe just for some exclusive games would be retarded.  Again, as I said before, it really comes down to personal preference.  And all this arguing is really a waste of time.  Just go play your <insert console of choice here> and have fun.

There is no argument. You purchase a system based on personal preference. But when comparing the facts, ps3 is superior, and im not just saying that b/c i own one. It was the reason i bought one.

hmm.. say what you will... but i'm the only one who gave any facts throughout this entire discussion, while you gave opinions.  i tried to get you to talk about games because the bottom line is that's what matters.  whoever has the best games has my loyalty.. so in my opinion, if anybody comes off as a fanboi, i think it'd be you.

but...

i was still having some fun just so you know... :wink:

i get a kick outta these kinds of debates.

I have a PS3 and a Wii, only reason I am currently looking at a 360 is if Epic renews their contract with Microsoft for Gears of War.
Personally, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, and InFamous look far more appealing.

YO I HAD A PS3 BREAK SO INSTEAD OF WAITING I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT A XBOX PRO. WELL LET ME TELL YOU I FUCKING HATED IT. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, THE GRAPHICS ARE NOT AS GOOD IM SORRY TO THOSE WHO THINK THEY DO BUT PUT THE SAME TV AND HDMI CORD PLUGED INTO A PS3 AND XBOX AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.

XBOX SUCKS AND SO DOES THEIR CONSOLE. I BOUGHT 3 WIRELESS ADAPTERS BEFORE I SAID FUCK THIS. I KEPT CALLING MICROSOFT AND THEY KEPT TELLING ME TO REPLACE THEM SO I SAID " IF YOUR TELLING ME TO GET A NEW ONE AFTER I HAVE ALREADY GOT TWO NEW ONES WITH NO LUCK, ARE YOU SAYING YOU PUT OUT A SHITTY FAULTY PRODUCT?" THEIR ANSWER WAS SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF "OCCASIONLY PRODUCTS NOT UP TO OUR STANDARDS MAKE IT OUT OF THE FACTORY." LOL WHAT A CROCK.

GET THE BLU-RAY PLAYER, FREE WIRELESS ETHERNET ADAPTER, AND FREE INTERNET CONNECTION, AND YOU WILL BE WAYYYYY ,MORE HAPPY. THE 100 WIRELESS CARD AND THE 20 FOR 3 MONTHS OF ONLINE PLAY (NOT INTERNET JUST ONLINE GAMES) JUST DONT DO IT FOR ME.


TO GET A XBOX OF EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE YOU WILL PAY ABOUT AS MUCH AS A 40GB PS3. DONT WASTE MONEY NOW WHEN XBOX 720 IS GONNA BE OUT WAY BEFORE THE NEXT PS.

Only games that really made me want a 360 were Bioshock and Ninja Gaiden 2. Well one will be here next month and the other is kinda-sorta confirmed for next spring so I'm good. The 360 does have a good holiday lineup with Gears and Fable 2, but Resistance 2 is the game I want.

When the PS3 first came out I wasn't impressed and talked a lot of bad shit about it. At first it had overheating problems to the point where a PS3 interactive at my job caught on fire. So the 360 I always talked strongly about...this was before I owned my own PS3 and had both systems together. The Ps3 I believe is the better system.

The 360 has a LOT of issues. Everyone knows the famous 'red ring of death' and all the hell it causes from talking to Microsoft to shipping out your system only to be left without anything to do as your friends gain a higher gamer score than you. Also Microsoft advertises the XBOX to be standing up when you should never have your system upright. If your system is shaken in any way while a disk is being played the laser will get real close to the disk and leave a ring. This is not a scratch but burned data off your disk. Its the same as snapping it in half, non fixable. Also the system is clunky and is poorly designed. Having said this, the system does provide hours of fun and though you have to pay for internet use the saying 'you get what you pay for' is true. The service is great and not much lag which the PS3 does get from time to time which is due to the fact that its free.

The PS3 is heavy and at first had high overheating issues. Other than that the system is amazing! Besides the blue-ray the system is more powerful than a 360. The game 'Uncharted: Drakes Fortune' Sony says is there way of saying "this is what a 360 cant handle", which is true. Also the new 'God of War 3' is so high in graphics that if you were to put the new and improved Kratos on a black screen and nothing more, the PS2 can not handle it. I own both systems, including a Wii, if I had to choose between the two I would recommend the PS3, not to mention the fact that all most all of the 360 games require you to have multiple TV's and systems to play multiplayer
