Now is a great time for gamers to pick up a PS3. As this console generation comes to an end the PS3 is looking to have a strong finish with games like Last of Us, God of War Ascension, and Beyond: Two Souls. Outside of the exclusive games there are many other reasons to break down and finally pick up a PS3. Who knows maybe gamers will see a price drop in the next 6 months.

Is this a question or a statement. BOOM, see what I did there, with the slyly sarcastic punctuation? Yeeeeaaaaahhhh.....seriously though, everyone should own every console AND a PC because they're all good in some way.

I was just about to put what you have put. If your a true gamer then you tend to own them all and don't take sides.

It was perfect five years ago Turkish.

Why miss years of gaming to save a couple hundred bucks?

It was a good time to get the console in 2009. Three years later, if you don't own it then you can do with out. If you haven't already fallen for the first party titles in the last four years, it's unlikely the latest offerings will be enough for you now. It's more than likely that you're more into third-party titles and if you cared about those you likely already own a 360 and/or PC that has been giving you what you need/want.

Honestly, the only people who don't own the consoles now aren't core gamers who might see a need in it. It's people who wouldn't buy games for it. That is, of course, just my idiotic opinion.

There are new gamers, casual and core buying consoles every day. It can be an 8 year old getting his first console, a middle aged man getting into gaming for the first time or a casual whos brothers PS3 was good enough for occasional play but is now looking into getting his own for some deeper core titles.

All examples I used are with people connected to me in some way. Every day a new gamer is born, so while these "why it's a good time to buy a xxx" may not pertain to us, it DOES pertain to someone else.

And, more than likely, and statistics on older consoles prove it, that the majority of those people aren't going to buy many games for the system. This late into the game, they may dip their foot into the waters, but they're not going to be imbibing of the greatness that the console has to offer let alone buying all the 'great' games mentioned in the article just because they are there.

As I said, your core gamers aren't buying the console now. It's other people. People who don't buy the console to play all the games, but just buy it to test it out.

You'll see more new gamers introduced to console gaming in the first two years of a new generation of games than you will in the last four years of this generation.

because its the console with the best games out right now and it will continue to put out the best quality games in compassion to the other two consoles till the end of this generation.

there ya go. just saved you guys a read.

It's. Not its. I have a hard time taking an article seriously that doesn't even get the title right.

Then again, this is IGN-level fan-wankery.

"Gamescom belongs to Sony, as does my heart."

Never forget.
