Hey guys.

Yesterday I went on YouTube and watched some PS3 trailers for games, and it was totally SICK!!!

I've got a Playstation 2 though, and I was just wondering if it's worth the money to get a PS3 or just stick with my PS2.

Or...I could wait for PS4 to come out (If there is going to be one). Right now I'm tossing between the 'waiting for new console' idea, or just going ahead and buying a PS3 for Christmas.

What are your suggestions?



Thanks,
Jandy999

I don't think I do. Is it just a slight difference though? yeah...PS3 games look pretty awesome online, especially the graphics of the games. And do multiplayer online games lag much? LOTRC lags so much on the computer, and my broadband is pretty fast.

Build a PC. I did and I never went back to consoles.

I do, however, have a PS2 that I got when I was 9 years old. I still sometimes play it to relive the old days (Jak and Daxter ftw!!). I am currently in the process of installing my PS2 in my car. I just need money to buy a head unit with an AV input...

Wow awesome dude! PS2 in a car...
Anywayz...sounds like a PS3 is good. Building a PC...would it cost more? I've got an ATI Radeon (I think) something something video card. But yeah...I'm most probably getting a PS3.

And do ps3 slims have wi-fi or internet cable? I'd rather have an internet cable, cuz wi-fi would be slow for online games
EDIT: With SICK GRAPHICS!!!

Well not the best since no one has hack it yet so you cant pirate games of it. but if you don't care about that, then I will say yes. the graphics are SICK if you have a good HDTV.

If you're playing Tekken 6 then you won't be happy playing online be it PSN or Live, unless you find a person who's like a walking or cycling distance away from you AND using a ISP that's very compatible to yours.
Games like Soul Calibur 4 aren't as bad but I can only pull off like 1/10 of Impacts I do against my friends offline because of lag.

But games like Gundam Senki, I had absolutely no problem with lag even when I join Asian rooms. Vancouver and Hong Kong are almost on the opposite side of the globe (more extreme opposite side would be somewhere in west Australia)

I used to use wireless but changed to cable because it makes lag even less significant (except tournament class Fighting games where every frame is oh so important).


quick edit: it looks like Tekken 6 has a scheduled update to fix (I was gonna say "improve" but "fix" seems more appropriate) online play.

i do a agree that the ps3 rocks but really in my opinion the 360 trumps it, it has a better games catalog you have to pay for online but the online on the 360 pwns the ps3 so it equals out, and the RROD is a good thing sure it might break and you'll lose it for a week to get repaired but because of RROD microsoft has extended the warranty on all 360's to 3 years so if my 360 breaks after 2 years im covered but the ps3 only has a 1 year basic manufacturers warranty besides, when microsoft take it for repairs they fit it with the newest disc drive

PS3 SUX
PS3 HAZ NO GAEMZ
It's a good console with a decent library of games. To be honest, even with the 14 games I have for the PS3 (More than half are exclusives) theres nothing really impressive, besides Demons souls and Uncharted 2 (I play Blazblue and Tekken 6 far more than those though). The online service is decent, but still lacking in a few areas. But then again, it's hard to complain especially when it's free. It has a promising future, with games like GoW collection, GoW 3, Last Guardian, a bunch of JRPGs, MAG, etc. It finally started getting good games, and I think it's a good time to buy it. Oh, and one major "disadvantage" of the PS3 is that you can't pirate the games. For me, I've always bought games for any home consoles, so doesn't really bother me. However, if you're the type that does care, go with the 360.

The reason I'm siding with ps3 is cuz my friend has one. But also...did COD: MW2 put out a beta only for playstation users? I heard it on the trailer yesterday lol. And...the only thing im worried about is if the online modes are crappy. Does the slim had an internet cable?
