Anyone got a Playstation 3?

I'm still debating......

£425 (around $800) for just the console is a bit absurd....but it looks amazing

Anyone got one? Worth it?

I got a Xbox 360, the graphics on it are nearly the same as the PS3, I have never played a PS3, but I would recommend a 360.

Re: Anyone got a Playstation 3?

There's no point in buying PS3 now - it doesn't close to its potential and its abilities
I think that 360 is better for now, jsut wait that the PS3 price will get down and then buy it, for now it's not worth buying it

Re: Anyone got a Playstation 3?

I was in ToysR'Us this weekend and saw a basketball game on PS3 there, the graphics was amazing, the game itself, not so much.

If you're looking for something cheaper, I would go with Wii, it gets much better reviews everywhere I look and the price is about 1/2 or less of a PS3....

Re: Anyone got a Playstation 3?

I think 360 is much better, and people have proved that, since 360, PS3 and Wii came out, more 360's have been sold than other 2 combained.

Re: Anyone got a Playstation 3?

it really cost $800 , I bought it and right now there is no games that I particularly like out their so I have not even opened it, lol, but I will be buying virtua tennis 3...

The list of games coming out will get better in the coming months, I usually just play sport games (fifa and madden) and GTA, sometimes a FPS, so if you dont see a game out their that you are intersted in playing I would say hold off, the people who I know that have bough it, seem to like it alot, but they have found games they are intersted in. The problem is also availability, I bought mine cause I had the chance and considering how hard they are to get I got one, if you know you will be buying one now or in 3 months I would just go ahead and buy one, the ps3 price will not be coming down anytime soon(some say it may go down $100 this october, but its just rumor) so youll have to pay for it now or in 3 months.
You can also justify your buying a ps3 by saying your helping to cure alzheimer's lol http://ps3.ign.com/articles/772/772947p1.html

PS3 has stepped up its online support and will start rolling out new features, it already has, so its fixing its bugs fast, like I said if the availability in the UK is going to be scarce the next 4-6 months, just go ahead and get one when you can, in the US you still cant get a ps3 in most places and it came out in september or october...

The PS3 prices probably won't be going down for 2 years.

that was thanks to the timing of when it came out, when there was nothing else good.

360 sells= 10million, Wii= 4.6 PS3- 1.65

but its safe to say thats Nintendo has sold the most systems. with 500,000,000 consoles sold

The stats are a bit meaningless considering the 360 has been out a lot longer

Not really PS3 sucks
and 360 is the 2nd console from Microsoft where PS3 is 3 from Sony, so Microsolf has better system already with 1 in hand

Re: Anyone got a Playstation 3?

ps3 will kick xbox360's ass, just like the ps2 mopped the floor with the xbox despite having an inferior system(in terms of power), xbox360 has the advantage now because they came out first, but that will change...

Re: Anyone got a Playstation 3?

Will they be available in the shops tomorrow or will only people with a pre-order get one?
