Sony Update ‘The time to own a PlayStation 3 is now’ Campaign

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) recently launched an inspired marketing campaign for their aging PlayStation 3 console, pushing the system as an established platform in the face of the impending PlayStation 4 release. Aimed at families and audiences who like their gaming on a budget, the campaign has today ramped-up a gear by adding new titles to an existing trailer. (Beyond: Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, The Last Of Us)

"PS4 can't run PS3 games , but now is the best time to own a PS3" sony's logic
ArchangelMike  +   521d ago
Well not everyone will be able to afford a PS4 right away, and I guess Sony don't want current PS3 adopters to trade-in their PS3 console for a PS4. Consumbers having both consoles is a win for Sony, the fact that the PS3 line-up is the best and strongest it's ever been is a fact that can't be denied.

I for one won't be trading in my PS3, but I will still be getting a PS4. I agree with Sony on their statement, now is the best time to own a PS3.

i cant believe people would trade in their ps3s. Considering i havent played a dozen gems this generation, as 60 dollar ps4 games are coming out, best believe all ps3 games will fall in price drastically.

Cant wait to catch up
vishmarx  +   521d ago
its not even about being able to afford.
rnow ps3 is getting every game that i care about.
be it the late return of jrpg(tales of,ff,ni no kuni,atelier,hyperdimesion neptunia,disgaea,fairy fencer,and a lot more that i find hard to pronounce or write)surprising ain it?!)
or indies like rain,journey,unfinished swan,
theres just a TON of exclusives especially if you care about japanese games
Bolts  +   521d ago
Lol now is the worst time to buy a PS3. At this point launching a marketing campaign to boost PS3 sales amount to nothing more than a scam. The console most people should buy right now is the PS4, and in the unlikely event that you can't afford that then you should wait for the PS3 price drop or buy it used.
serratos27  +   521d ago
Definitely. Having stepped away from gaming after the PS2 (my favorite console thus far) I've found myself completely lost in the gaming world but as the PS4 is being released I'll be catching up. My body is ready for this next gen console ;)
Ezz2013  +   520d ago
get to play all the awesome ps3 exclusives and then dat gem the last of us (one of the best games this gen if not the best)

and soon beyond two souls ,GT6 and more
and the best version of most multiplat games this year like GTA5,Bioshock,tomb raider,Metro last light,splinter cell etc
and soon batman AQ,Lord of shadows 2,MGSV etc

yeah, it's the best time to get ps3

Gaikai baby.
LOGICWINS  +   521d ago
Yes trywizardo, everyone has $399 laying around to buy a next-gen console console /s
trywizardo  +   521d ago
if they have it then buy PS4 not PS3 and if they don't then save that money for PS4 and get over current gen , that's what i said to my friends that consider buying 360 and that what i will tell everyone
Ashlen  +   521d ago
Why not?

Unlike some other companies who abandoned there console years ago. Sony has had a strong line up all year and has great games lined up for well past the release of the PS4.

Ash I am assuming you are talking about exclusive games.Could you tell me the names of the great games coming out for the PS3 well past the release of the PS4,I want to check them out.
LOGICWINS  +   521d ago
^^There will still be TONS of multiplatform games, indies, and exclusives coming out for the PS3 during the next 2-3 years. On the exclusive front, Tales of Xillia 2 and Tales of Symphonia have been confirmed for 2014.

And I'm sure there are quite a few gems you've missed out on as there are over 800 PS3 games out there.

I personally still haven't purchased Ni No Kuni or Tales of Xillia. So I have TONS of JRPG gaming to do on my PS3. I'm also getting Beyond sometime this year.

Actually ps4 will run ps3 games in 2014 using Gaikai. Actually it won't be the only device to be able to do so.
CGI-Quality  +   521d ago
Not their thinking at all, but at least we can see you don't get the material, and only have 1 bubble left, thus can't pollute the subject too much more. ;)

OT: There's never been a better time to own the system. Even with the PS4 on the way, it's still a great console to buy, 7 years later!
stuna1  +   521d ago
This is not worse than Microsoft initial take on things! "If you don't have a internet connection for the Xbox1, then get you a Xbox 360! But we know how that turned out, don't we?
Regis  +   521d ago
Don't have enough for the PS3 get second job. But we know how that turned out, don't we?

stuna1  +   521d ago
Yeah! It outsold the Xbox360.

But the Xbox1 did a 180.

I just checked all the PS3 RPG's I missed out on as well as all the PS2 RPG's.

I'm seriously considering buying a PS3.

Problem is, I'm broke and also want a PS4.
SoulSercher620  +   521d ago
Next gen is coming out therefore some of the best current gen games coming out should automatically be ignored. Your logic.
Fishy Fingers  +   521d ago
Great console with a great back catalog of games but even with upcoming AAA games I wouldn't recommend to anyone to buy a "last gen" system.

Save up some more, buy a PS4 and enjoy upwards of 8 years entertainment rather than the few you'll see from the PS3. Plus, you can always play the PS3 heavy hitters on your PS4.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   521d ago
Bro, This is good for anyone who hasn't played exclusive games on the PS3. PS3 heavy hitters will only be playable on PS4 via stream. most people like me wants to "own" a game without the need to connect to the net everytime. just like digital downloads. i don't need to go online to play it. I enjoyed playing my digital Resident evil 4 and code veronica on PSN. it's either keep your downloaded games forever with backup or keep your physical discs. streaming is good for you if its okay for you to play the game just once and when you finish it, you won't look back. its not good for "game collections"
pyramidshead  +   521d ago
Pretty nice hook, with the inevitable drought of PS4s to come, you sorta might as well. Tonnes of decent exclusives to snap up and play while you wait for the second wave of PS4s to ship. Actually owning both a PS3 and PS4 this year you're going to be overloaded with current gen and next gen games to play.

My bank is already sobbing.

^this.

Also, I hope I am able to get a ps4 by christmas break since we get like 5 weeks off of school. would be epic.
Shazz  +   521d ago
ps3 will still be getting played in couple years time in my house anyway. awesome games i missed out on still need played.
AceBlazer13  +   521d ago
Not everyone can afford a next gen console and with such an amazing backlog of amazing games and great upcoming games now is definitely the best time to own a ps3,if the ps4 wasn't getting sold out across the board I wouldn't mind sticking to ps3 a bit Longer.
CanadianTurtle  +   521d ago
Well, the PS4 will be able to play digital PS3 games won't it? Correct me if I'm wrong. I don't have a PS3 anymore and I kind of missed out on a few exclusives. I was just thinking that I'd get them on the PS4 as digital downloads
Drekken  +   521d ago
Eventually come next year when gaikai is up and running. Sony said the PS3 catalog will be available.
SoulSercher620  +   521d ago
Not natively. Only thru Gaikai.
Hicken  +   521d ago
Huge backlog of games- even with all the ones I've played. If I didn't have a PS3, I'd be looking at now as a great time to get one. I'd probably try and play all the games in order from launch, just to see if I could resist getting on the newest stuff.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   521d ago
Since 2008, it's always been a good time to own a Playstation 3.
Picnic  +   520d ago
What happened in 2008? Little Big Planet? I'd say more like 2009 was the time to own one with Uncharted 2 and people other than Sony studios starting to get to grips with the Cell. The first Uncharted came out in 2007 of course but not much else then to say that it had come in to its stride.
