From CNET: Did you get a new Xbox One or PlayStation 4 over the holidays? Here's what you can do with your old systems.
Errr because of ps+ I actually went out and bought a second hand ps3 !! couple weeks after I bought my ps4 just to play all the free games Sony give away on ps3, as I was primarily a 360 owner I never experienced the ps3.so yeh my new 'old' system is going nowhere, its getting more use than my ps4 and Xbox one at the moment!!
i agree with teabags...err ballbags.... my ps4 gets play...plenty of play but so does my ps3...my ps+ has the ps3 going nowhere. i also use it for apps like youtube (strangely missing on the ps4) as well as music i have saved and i browse the web on it to watch my anime (animeultima btw) and movie stream sites. my girl is overly attached to netflix and hulu, and ill be damned if she touch my ps4... so yeah the ps3 is hugely alive and kicking in my house, no end in sight.
I love my PS4, but my PS3 is still getting most of the love right now. FFXIV and Beyond showed up in the mail a little while ago, and I have an immense back catalog. Plus I just scored SM3DW, Super Luigi and The Wonderful 101 on Wii U, so my PS4 is having to fight for my time. But once games like inFAMOUS start coming out, I'm sure my PS4 will eventually get the majority of my playtime.
Ps3 with ps+= still active.
'4 things you can do with your old game consoles' 3)Gaming http://upload.wikimedia.org... Anyways, I'm still going to play my PS3 now I've got a ps4, Im just waiting for inFamous SS and whatever PS + throws my way each month on both consoles. currently awaiting Lightning Returns but I want the special edition imported. I WANT TEH STOPWATCH lmao
EXACTLY! I have had a PS3 all last gen, but never got PS+ until I had to with the PS4. about a month later, I decide to turn on my PS3 again and check out the store. I was BLOWN AWAY at what PS+ offers. I got Ico, SoTC, Grind (i think), XCOM, Borderlands 2, and more all for free. It paid for itself in 1 month.
1.) Play games on them 2.) Repeat
Eat Sleep Game Repeat.... :)
Why does this article exist?
1.) play 'em.
Playing them sounds good.
Make sweet love to them. It's what I've been doing for years.
I see lots of sticky controllers in your future.
And far too many in his past.
shame they give no mention to giving it to charities or less fortunate.
That's a very good idea.
Like Jack tretton said on e3, you can trade your games or keep it forever... *The crowd goes wild*
All I can say to the writer of this article is... "Thank you Captain Obvious". He has once again saved us from the turmoil of figuring out how to continue to use the consoles we have had for years. Shew...that was a close one...
Both next gen systems collecting dust. Blew through their games and now I am going back to PS3. Until Feb.
he mention going to "setting clean your hard drive" before selling true, but more easier pulling it out back in do the same job re-formatting its self.
You can keep them and stop bs about the lack of bc in new consoles.
PS+ and PS Now will keep PS3 relevant for 3-5 more years. Here's why.... There's the multi-media functionality and apps (currently better than PS4's) such as Netflix, Lovefilm, Now TV, Blink box all the catch up channels, Vidzone and Sony's own Music Unlimited/Video store, free to access! Then there's the social media of 'PS Home' (whether you may like it or not) can be a main feature for newcomers who wish to make friends with other gamers locally, or in different parts of the world. Online play remains free, and PS+ memberships are unified across PS products. Not withstanding, the 3,000+ games already available for the system, and the fact that the PS3 is not a million miles away from the next/current gen consoles visually. The graphical ceiling is a lot lower this gen than that of the PS2's era. Remember the PS2 had a 12 year run. Even Fifa 14 came out for it! Do not sell/trade in your PS3, it's a keeper :)
Keep them forever and ever.
my bandwidth isn't good enough for streaming so i just have my old console to play games, that is all.
I'm keeping my PS3. The free PS+ titles will always give me something to play even though I don't plan on buying any more PS3 games.
Play them suckas
