I'm still debating......

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

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.

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

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....

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.

it really cost $800 :eek: , 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 :lol:

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

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 :lol:

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...

All 3 of these consoles are amazing but definately wait because sooner or later they will all be sitting on a shelf for you.

The PS3 does have gorgeous graphics, but you have to buy a really good high def tv to actually see any difference.

My little brother got one, that a**hole :rolleyes:

I have a PS3 and I can tell you, it's okay, but so far no game has gone out exclusivley for this console that makes it a must.

The only reason I bought a PS3 was because I thought Virtua Tennis 3 was an exclusive title for this system. Turns out it's also on the 360....

Anyway, the actual system itself is okay, there are no games that have made me go "wow" on the PS3, and the actual system is bulky and a bit uncomfortable. I am not a fan of wireless cotrollers, dont ask me why, and I am uncertain wether I like the tray-less feature in the PS3.

Again, maybe when a few exclusive titles come out, it will be worth it, but so far, game wise and graphic wise, I'd go for the 360, no doubt about it...

Yesterday, there was a news item on playstation 3:

The PS3's chip is the same one IBM is using in a supercomputer it's building for the Department of Energy. That computer is expected to reach speeds of one petaflop, or 1,000 trillion calculations per second.

"It has so much horsepower and, of course, when you're playing a game all that horsepower will be used for the game. But there are a lot of times during the day when somebody's not playing the game," said Sony's Richard Marks. "It seemed like a good idea to be able to use that horsepower for something else that is, in this case, good for mankind."
