Default Is it too late for a PS3?

I'm in college, I've been busy with my girlfriend, most of my time is being spent with her or just going to the gym, once again, with her. My social life has taken a turn and being occupied, busy, is increasing. It's been like this for 6 months now, while my XBOX is collecting dust. This is coming from someone who played it most likely every day. I use it to play COD only, like BO2.

I'm interested in selling this XBOX for about $150+ and getting or trading for a PS3 because the online is free. I am also interested in Killzone 3. I dislike the controller but I feel like the PS3 would best suite me. Should I pull the trigger, PS3 fans, what do you think? Is it worth getting a used PS3? I can only get a used one, don't want to go all out on a new console.

Sidenote: I will be playing NBA 2K13.

It's up to what you want really.

I have a PS3 and I will most likely keep it for the next couple years even if the next generation hits. I really like it and I dig it's exclusives better than the 360 exclusives.

So if you just want a console that you can just spend hours playing some sick backlogs you'll be good for a while. If you have to have the latest and greatest it might be wise to wait for a bit and see if you wanna get the new systems.

They will be far more expensive than 150 though...

Default Re: Is it too late for a PS3?

might as well get it...from what i heard the new consoles aint supposed to drop till like 2014-2015...and even then...u know when they first hit they gonna be like 600+ which is too damn high.

ps3 is pretty much an entertainment system...play blu rays etc. so its good to go even if u just need a blu ray player.its a pretty good investment....better exclusives.....waaaaay better controller far as the dpad goes for like fighting games.

online gaming is free.

basically it comes down to one thing when it comes to online play....are u friendly gamer or a rogue...if u rogue get the ps3....if u like conversing with everybody and talkin to the persons ass u beatin get the xbox 360 or keep it but keep in mind no blu-ray player

im considering it too. I have a 360 but I don't want to miss out on playing all the great PS3 exclusives. Trading in my 360, buying one this week.

It's hard telling. It's a quality system, and has some great games on it, like Uncharted, inFamous, etc. But if you're already this far, I'd wait until this years E3 to see what they announce. Save up for the new console if you want, either way would be fine.

I hope not. I just bought one last month. I'm a big PC Gamer but 199 for the 250GB including Uncharted 1/2 and Infamous 1/2 was worth it. Been playing old games, but they're still fun.

I mean, if you're in to cutting edge graphics and stuff you wouldn't get a console anyway so just enjoy the exclusives, good game-play, and yearly sports games that suck on a PC.
