GameSpot - Before the PlayStation 4 enters our lives, take a look back at some of our fondest and darkest memories of the PS3.
The huge quantity of quality Exclusives.
idont know why people are disagreeing with you. uncharted the last of us killzone infamous resistance gran turismo god of war demon souls off the dome list. im sure theres more im missing.
There are hundreds more, but a couple of serious omissions are MGS4 and Journey :D I love my PS3's, my favorite console of this gen, and I have them all. There are so many amazing PS3 exclusives. I've met a lot of gamers on PSN who have the same likes, wants, etc and have made some friendships. I can honestly say that the PS3 is my favorite gaming platform to date, and I'm one of them older gamers. Can't wait to see what Sony does next gen.
Agreed... Also considering the fact they didn't scrap some of the huge games for PS3 just to try and fluff up their launch lineup for PS4. But actually stayed and supported their current console... Could you imagine if God Of War Ascension, The Last Of Us, Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6, Until Dawn, and Puppeteer were for PS4 and were shown at E3 ONLY FOR PS4??? lol
The PS2 IMO had a much larger quantity of quality exclusives. There were platforming and RPGs, something relatively lacking on the PS3. Hopefully the PS4 will deliver at least half of the PS2-like variety of games given the cheaper than XOne price, lower development costs, and a friendly architecture. That being said the PS3 is a very nice system. Definitely better than 360 and Wii, IMO anyway.
xbox 360 is better than ps3 overall imo 90% of games look/run better on 360 with superior online features and better controller the best thing with the ps3 by far is naughty dog, phenomenal developers, absolutely phenomenal anyways the ps4 with its games, features and price look almost perfect, it is the return of the ps2, perhaps better than ps2 since it's the most powerful (based on rumors)
... straight out the slums of Shaolin, swingin' swords like hammers from blacksmiths. If ya didn't know, well now ya know kid, The PS3 ain't nothin' to **** with. SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
1 Things We'll Never Forget about the PlayStation 3; 1. PS3
thanks to the devs who actually supported and developed for that slow, hard to develop for, awful piece of machine.. although most of it's exclusives are overrated especially from their first party studios. can't wait for PS4! that's a real gaming console
true that the machine itself could've been easier to develop for but it definitely produced some of the best exclusives this gen. not overrated at all in my honest opinion. but to each his own
You are a really bad troll.
CELL architecture still is amazing, and most people can admit to that. What most people can't deny is that it was hard to develop for. Sony were selfish and wanted the very best developers to come to develop for CELL. Yet we all know you're still gonna be trolling on the Sony games regardless of the hardware, so you're troll status just dropped massively. Poor, poor trolling there mate.
demons souls, best ps3 game ever!! amazing game!!
One of my personal highlights this gen was getting my hands on Demons Souls for the first time. While it isn't my favourite PS3 game it's definitely in my top 10.
I loved demons souls. I think a lot of people diss this game because of how hard it was.
I seriously wanted to have one of those!
Well with the ps3 im able to turn off the ds3 but in a recent article u cant turn of the led light bar thats probably the only complain i have
you can turn off the dualshock 4 controller as well. in the article you read it was just saying that when your dualshock 4 is on, you dont have the option of turning off the LED light. so i dont know what you are complaining about. both controllers can be turned on and off except when you turn on the dualshock 4 the light bar will stay on as long as the controller is on.
Oh ok well thats better :)
i'll never the moment i played mgs4 for the first time, phenomenal
Correction: i'll never FORGET :)
MGS4 was pure fan service (in a good way) you could tell it was made for everyone that stuck with the series from the PSOne days. So many inside jokes and nods to the old games with a heck of a lot of new crazy things added to the MGS universe. I'll always remember the Shadow Mosses level where we actually got to control Metal Gear Rex Vs Ray! awwww man so cool just thinking about it!
Well out of that 36 things, I only remember 5 lol. 1. the 599 price 2. Cell architecture 3. Boomerang controller 4. Rubber duck demo on E3 5. Weaker GPU, a GTX 7800 based RSX
I will never forget Kaz Hirai's 599 US dollars.... And my first game with PS3 MOTORSTORM, never completed that game. DAMN HARD!!!
People remember $599. Why does nobody remember $499? That's how much the 20 Gb was. I had one.
Ill remember a little from PS3: 1. E3 PS3 Launch http://www.youtube.com/watc... 1.1 RIDGE RACER!!! 1.2 $599 USD! 1.3 Giant enemy crab... real historic battles. 1.4 "I will work more hours to buy one" Ken Kutaragi 2. The removal of Backwards compatibility and Linux 3. THE POWER OF THE CELL!! ... is junk! 4. The arrogance of Sony at the beginning. 5. 2005-2008 SONY HAZ NO GAMES!!! 6. Every year is the year of Sony... sure it is. 7. Sixaxis is the future, rumble is so last gen. BS! http://www.1up.com/news/son... Well I could go on for a nice long time. The arrogance of Sony at the beginning killed it for me. I hope to god they learned their lesson this time. I want a very strong competition this gen. Keep all three console makers on their toes. Make things better for all of us!
Well here's hoping they change your mind with next gen. Sony seem to have learned their lessons and you can tell that just by looking at their new console. They had to eat a lot of humble pie this gen and it seems it's worked out for the best.
