Hi..So I`ve been itching to buy this console for more then a year now..and I just didn`t have enough money or to put it rather bluntly...reasons..cause don`t get me wrong..it has a lot of games that I like or would like to play..like Little Big Planet..but I kinda caught some rumours that it may get a bit cheaper `cause of more affordable ways of production and such..well the price is in euros here..so the ps is 399..which isn`t actually that bad..but the games cost like 70 euros..so wait or buy now..actually I would like to buy a copy with LBP with it..good deal?

here`s the link:

get a 360. ps3 is boring
Quote by Marshmelllow
graphs. graphs always work. my old work place had an awesome printer, so i was constantly making graphs.

that was until i made a graph of how much my boss pissed me off. but seriously dude, graphs.

The PS3 is due a price cut mate. I'd wait one more month, because you'll be kicking yourself if you waste 1/4 of your money
#4
Sorry man..More constructive comment than that..I don`t have anything against it..my friend has it..but I`m just more into the PS=)
So a little advice on that please

EDIT: I hope you are right..but Sony just keeps negating it..They probably fear people will stop buying it and just wait it out a little untill the price is right haha..but I really wanna play LBP and get it for free with it and am kinda scared if it will stop coming in that bundle:P

i dont think the game that TS wants is out on the 360

on topic: the longer you wait, the cheaper it should get. especially if you buy the console second hand [ebay etc...]

i frikkin knew it. as soon as i read the title of the thread i said to myself 'i bet some douche bag is gonna say 'buy a 360' or 'ps3 sucks''

the 360 and ps3 are fine consoles and it depends which console you think will offer games you would enjoy more. if you're a huge halo fan or something then you should probably go with 360. if you want LBP or the ps3 exclusive games then yea..stick with ps3. also the ps3 has a blue ray player so if you're big on movies then you may want to consider that aswell

edit: wow i totally forgot you asked WHEN to buy the system. uhh yea id wait a little while, prices usually go down every season.

True..just for the game alone I would buy this console..let alone other reasons..It`s just that it`s kinda frustrating to just wait and see what happens=)

EDIT:Thx for adding the point regarding the console fanboy wars Weseem..it`s just up to the person which games and what kind of experience he wants from the console
And yeah..I love movies in HD..and am very optimistic in blu-ray..so it is another plus for me..and yeah..it is advice regarding the right time to purchase it..If I buy it now I will be very pleased..but If I wait I may save a lot of money:P

Yeah - I was TOTALLY stoked when mine red ringed. It was so much EXTREME fun.


Wait for a couple months - the ps3 is going to drop another hundred bucks.

but If you've saved for a while.. surely you can save a bit longer so that when the price goes down, you:
a)are buying it for cheaper
b) have more money left over since you've saved for an extra month, and because you have saved

wait my friend

It seems like I should really choose the second option and just wait it out a little and see what happens
I`m just not sure if it will come in bundle then..and with LBP or some other great game=)

EDIT: I think the XBOX 360 is a great console..more then 1 friend had one..but more then 1 broke too..rrod and stuff..one got it replaced and gave it to his sister..while buying the elite version..my other friend got it replaced too..and sold it to another person..he regrets it a little now

360 > ps3

there I said it.

Flame me I don't care.

The blue ray player in the ps3 is pointless since HD is taking over blue ray. Not to mention there is only like three good games for the ps3.

Isn't there a 160GB version on the horizon?

When that comes out the current versions will probably be a lot cheaper.

get guitar or bass stuff, screw video games


Maybe you should follow your own advice- that Behringer amp you own isn't even fit for smashing up. Now not to be mean- if he wants to buy a console, he should buy a console. There's no need to spend all your cash on guitar and bass stuff.

Yup. HD-DVD has taken over Blu-Ray. In fact, it whooped Blu-Ray SO hard it LOST THE FORMAT WAR.

Look, I respect your opinion..but HD is in simple words just higher resolution while the BLU-RAY is a storage device which has a lot of space for this higher resolution to be put in use
I hope I made some sense

EDIT AGAIN: Oh and I AM saving for a new amp..cause my old one is in "repair" for about a month now..but I want this topic to be focused on just this one thing=)

and thx freedoms_stain, for you have explained it better than myself

blu-ray is HD, HD-DVD is dead, if you want to watch movies in HD you need a blu-ray player, simple as.

So anway..thx guys..I`ll just try and fight the temptation and wait a bit more..but if in at least 2 months no more new rumours on the price cut thing..I think I`m gonna give in to it and buy it for what it`s worth
Cheers and thanks!=)

plus it cost nothing to sign up so whats to lose plus they explain everything on there
#25
well.. i'd say to just go w/ a 360: cheaper, and better IMO.
but if you really want a PS3 i'd wait a little for a price cut.

Blu-ray IS the definition of High Definition in terms of movies lol.

HDDVD isnt being produced because it lost.


PS3 also seems to have a more powerful core so I'd definately buy a ps3, heck we have 2 here.

to the TS I'd say wait a bit untill the prices drop ofc depending on your desperation level. But when games like Assassin's Creed 2 and Uncharted: Among Thieves comes out (it's not out yet, is it?) I enjoyed playing the prequels VERY much on ps3.

it's still not acceptable mate. A console should work flawlessly being as popular as the 360 is. You don't pay for something that you aren't sure will work when you need it to. The margin of error on the ps3 is not even noticable compared to the 360. I can't speak for the newer 360 models though, some say they've fixed RRoD some say they havent

Dude, that's not the point. If you buy a games console with your hard saved cash then it should work and not break because of bad design.

Defo buy a PS3, I bought one and I'm in love with it. It's got a gd library of games, exclusive features and there are some seriously cool games coming out for it soon, such a gd line-up of exclusives it's unreal.

Wait for the Killzone 2 bundle perhaps?

edit: doesn't this belong in the gaming thread, really?

I'd say wait for the inevitable price cut. It's starting to look good for game makers finally using the full power of the next-gen consoles and PS3s getting a better line-up.

Ive had a 360 since 2005 and a PS3 since Summer 08.

I can confidently say the PS3 rapes the **** out of 360

You should consider the Wii.

Not now, I own one and the game library is bad. But they are coming out with an extension that offers a true 1:1 motion control, which means that there will be lightsaber battles that actually work like you think. The extension will come with Wii Sports 2, and in that there is kendo (sword fighting) and other things.

This really gives me hope for a game light KOTOR, where you can lightsaber with one hand, and do force effects and move with the nunchuck. It seriously sounds awesome, and it comes out in a few months.

Go to 00:50 to skip the intro, it really is going to be the wii saver.

just wait for the price cut, its slowly but surely getting better, and well, i always favored PS's First Party titles over 360 which is why i chose PS3 over 360, just a personal preferrence....although i'm considering getting a cheap 360 for Banjo and Kazzooee however ya spell that...

You "sir" need to get out more. HD dvd "has" been dead and gone for more then a few months "sir". And Only three good games for ps3?? Wow. I'll list "a" few of my personal favorites. Heavenly Sword, Little Big Planet (full of WIN), Resistance one and two...there are more then 3 "good" games.

The "__" were to confuse you all MUHAHAHAHA.
