  • Too late for PS3?

    I've been thinking about picking up a PS3 to play some of the exclusives I've been missing. At this point do you think it's better to just wait for PS4?

    I'll probably double up on Zen Pinball & TPA. Little Big Planet always looked fun. Are there any other PS3 games you'd recommend?

    Thanks for your input.

    Nope! It's never too late to buy a PS3. One thing I like about Sony is their continuous support of their older hardware. Just look at the PS2, it was supported several years after the PS3 released. It'll be the same thing when the PS4 releases. The PS3 will continue to be supported for several more years.

    As for other PS3 exclusives, the Ratchet & Clank series, Uncharted series and Heavy Rain are really good.

      I think PS3 still has time before PS4. The original Zen pinball will be removed from the store when ZP2 arrives. This means that ZP1 will be a rare game in the future. You still could play it with old physics. If you buy ZP1 before ZP2 you will get all the tables for free to ZP2.

      Also, Gran turismo 5 is a great game too!

        I will agree with the above posts. Uncharted series, gran turismo 5, Ratchet and Clank series (except the last one). You should also consider the God of War series, Metal Gear Solid 4 (hard to follow story without all the previous games but it is still a fun stealth game), Infamous series, and the motorstorm series.

          Might I suggest Borderlands?

            Yeah, like Shogun said, there are still several years left of the PS3, even if a new console comes out, it will still be supported.

              It depends. If you already have an xbox 360, I would probably hold off on getting a ps3 and wait for the next generation unless you have plenty of disposable income or need a blu ray player. If you are just buying it for exclusive ps titles, there are just a handful of great exclusives like the Uncharted series or Gran Turismo 5 (if you like racing sims). There have been rumors that the ps4 will not be backwards compatible with ps3 games, however, I am sure the great titles like the Uncharted series will eventually get the upgrade treatment for the ps4 just like classic ps2 classics have gotten the update treatment on the ps3 (though launch ps3s were completely backwards compatible with the ps2). Of course, the next generation consoles won't be out for another 1-2 years and like others have said 1st and 3rd party studios will most likely continue to publish games for both the new and previous generation consoles for a few years after the release of the new console.

                i doubt there will be a PS4 any time soon, maybe a new model of ps3 with the more ram at best
                but is still a pretty good time to buy one anyway
                a lot of great exclusives like Infamous 1 and 2, Little big Planet 1 and 2, the sly collection, all the God Of War series is available for PS3, Journey and Wipeout HD and more
                besides PSN is free

                  Thanks for the replies... I've been putting money aside for a pinball machine but it's just been frustrating seeing a bunch of overpriced junk and prices are rising quickly (likely from others like me who's favorite games are PFX2 and TPA).

                  I'll probably pull the trigger on that PS3 this weekend. I had no idea ZP2 was this close to release, but that is a great incentive.

                    Another nice incentive is that there are a few other pinball games available on the PSN Store. One is called Pinballistik by Creat Studios. I personally had a blast with it. It has a unique two player (battle table) mode, along with a classic mode. There are only three themes available (Western, Space and Party), but it's not bad for $10 ($4 for main program with one theme, $3 each for the two themes).

                    In the Minis section (compatible with PS3 and PSP), they have the classic Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies available for $7 each.

                      To keep you bros updated on my cool story, I did get the PS3 and can finally play the Zen Pinball exclusives and TPA dlc. Always nice to play some new tables, but wow... felt like a timewarp going back to PFX. Guess I've been spoiled by PFX2. Looking forward to the update. While my xbox account is nearly maxed out I have no PS friends yet, so feel free to add me. pinbot-76

                      Now I just need to get used to that controller.

                          I hear ya! That's why I usually stick to 360, just because the controller is more comfortable for me. Add me on PSN!

                            Feel free to add me. PSN name is the same as my user name. Just let me know who you are in the FR.

                            I'm personally so used to the DualShock controller that it doesn't bother me anymore, but I wish that the hand grips were a little longer like they were on the original PS (non-analog) controller.

                            BTW, Barbie do you have any trophies on your PSN account? If yes, then please click on the "trophy collection" section when you are signed into the PSN, so you can sync your trophies. Currently, you look like a total noob with no trophies and no avatar on your profile.
