    okay guys i really need help deciding on which console to get, i get my first pay check today and ill have enough for the 3ds or the ps3, okay but for the ps3 i have a coupon for 100$ off any 160 or 320 gb ps3 console and it expires this month on the 28 i believe, so in the end im gonna end up spending about 260$ for either console n i dont know what to get i really cant make up my mind [​IMG]

    PS3 has a lot of great games you would expect on a console, plus bluray support.

    3DS has nothing really for now, but later a lot of fabulous games will be coming together with a revamped browser and app store.

    I got myself the 3DS cuz I'm always out (the whole afternoon almost everyday) and my PS3 is now there sorta collecting dust (seriously no time to play but I love the games). So, yeah it depends on what you like and your 'situation'. [​IMG]

    Well my PS3 has gone unused for a while, but it has a fair amount of good games.
    It's worth getting a PS3 just to play Valkyria Chronicles.
    Demon's souls is great too, though.
    Probably some other games you could find you'd like.

    3DS doesn't have any games right now (it's pulling a launch-PS3). It'd be more wise to get the PS3 with the coupon, and then eventually get a 3DS when, probably, more games are out.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Get the Ps3, don't let that coupon waste [​IMG]
    You can get the 3DS later on when there are more game's and maybe a price drop [​IMG]

    The 3DS has no awesome games ATM.
    The PS3 has a big library of good games.

    I say go for the PS3 while the price is still good for it. It has some pretty fun RPGs if your that kind of person. Plus think of all the PS1 games you could catch up on if you missed out on them before! Besides the game playing aspect the Ps3 is a pretty good media player [​IMG] and it upscales things nicely!

    The 3DS at the moment doesn't really have anything going for it at the moment and is pretty costly but if your really willing to spend the money you have a great line up to look forward to for the year!

    If you do go for the PS3 option some of the great exclusives are

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If you go 3DS... Buy megaman legends 3 prototype :|

    PS3.

    You should wait for the better games to come out for the 3DS. The PS3 already has a nice library of games and such.
