Every Xbox One Owner Should Consider Buying a PS3

Hardcore Gamer: Those bored with the current Xbox One offerings are left with little to tide them over until the Fall software boom comes. Xbox One owners need some novel experiences over the summer. Fortunately, there is one out-of-the-box solution to the Xbox One’s software problem: Buying a PlayStation 3 and working your way through its extensive exclusive catalog.

scratch that every 'gamer' should buy a ps3.

@mikelarry,yes they set a good price.

@xinaratuuzumaki, yea there exclusives are incredible.

Mikelarry737d ago

Agreed, there are just too many games to pass up on that system especially now that the price they are going for

Naga737d ago

The premise of the author's reasoning seems to be that Xbox One owners are bored with current offerings... I'm curious where he gets that impression, because every XB1 owner I know is still very much entertained by what's available.

darthv72737d ago

This same thing could be said about pretty much any platform.

if you are bored with the wii, get a ps3/360
if you are bored with the 360, get a ps3
if you are bored with a ps3, get a 360
if you are bored with a ps4, get a saturn
if you are bored with a saturn, get a gamecube

the list goes on and on until you have so many systems and games you dont know what you want to play and then you end up not playing any of them.

have you ever been faced with so many choices that you dont make one and just do something else? it happens.

Ultra737d ago

The word 'every' in the opinion piece is too generic.

Should all those X1 owners who have had played PS3 in the past also consider re-buying it for the exclusives and lower price tag? Is it mandatory that gamers must spend more money for Sony than M$?

tbone567737d ago

No thanks. 360 is better than the PS3.

ZodTheRipper736d ago

^Seriously? You never owned a PS3, it's library is by far superior to the X360. The best games of last gen were PS3 exclusives, TLOU, Demon's Souls, Journey or God Of War 3 to mention a few.

The PS3 is an amazing console. it is by far my most favorite Sony console of all time.

It had a rough start, but it ultimately outsold the 360. And, it has the best collection of exclusive of all, most of which are critically acclaimed exclusives and GOTYs.

XiSasukeUchiha737d ago

Agreed Naruto, PS3 is a console that every 1 owner should buy.

tucky737d ago

Just a matter of taste.
Personally, I have always prefered Xbox 360 exclusives

superherox7737d ago

Dude why do you talk to yourself and comment first? Are you mentally ill?

Dontworrybhappy737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

I got the PS4 for one reason and one reason alone, TLOU. It is the first game that made me want a Playstation since the days of when I had a PS2. Halo completely swept me off my feet from 2004 til present and beyond! But TLOU looks too dope to pass up! So NOW I have every newer platform besides PS3, WiiU, and unfortunately no PC :( Also have a 3DS and a Nintendo 64 that won't seem to die. :D BTW Resogun and Killer Instinct are the BEST games on PS4 and Xbox 1

Ihatetrolls76737d ago

I had a ps3 wasn't that great to be honest and getting online downloading updates was just a pain majority of the time uncharted was a good game but waaaaaaaaaay over rated god of war was fun and liked twisted metal. I might buy one used latter. I'm considering a ps4 because I think the order may be a great game and it has me considering a purchase

mmc-007737d ago

just like i find halo way over rated but some how that's not allowed to be said

Magicite737d ago

PS3 is best console right now, hands down. Best games library, best price/value and more must-have exclusives coming soon (ex. Persona 5).
Thats the reason I dont buy PS4 yet, because PS3 keeps me busy.

I respectfully disagree. If you waited this long only using an Xbox One I'm sure you can wait till September when two great games are coming out with Destiny and Forza Horizon 2.

JBSleek737d ago

I personally wouldn't buy eight year old hardware. Especially when I have a PC in which the library of games are massive and have a huge back catalog of games.

But to each their own just my opinion on the subject matter.

MonstaTruk737d ago

@JBSleek

I disagree also, for different reasons. If I had an Xbox One, and was feeling gaming woes, then instead of paying an extra $200 for a PS3 on top of the $400-$500 for the Xbox One, I'd just trade that in and get a PS4. You'd have access to 8th gen games still (albeit slightly better graphics), & you can jump on the PS Now, with a 100+ game library for PS3 at launch. Game prices will improve (hopefully a subscription system), plus the PS3 library will increase, as well as eventual plans for PS1 & PS2 games. Sounds like best of ALL worlds, to me...

JBSleek737d ago

Why would you get rid of an entire system because summer games are weak. As they always are.

As if PS4 doesn't have the same problem you essential just wasted money to get back to square one if we are following the articles premise.

PS Now prices are pretty overpriced and is really aimed at people without a PlayStation 4 so I wouldn't partake in such a program. Gamefly is a better deal.

I would choose a PS3 over trading in an Xbox One and getting a PS4 to be stuck in the same problem.

MonstaTruk737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

@JBSleek

Wait...what?

You do know that 97% of all games between Xbox One & PS4 will be shared, right? With PROBABLY better graphics for those 97% multiplats on PS4. But with YOUR rationale, you're saying you'd rather pay $700 plus PS3 games instead of $400, shared, improved, multiplats, & access to PS3 games also (and PS1 & PS2 later), is that right? Why would you CHOOSE to pay $300+ more dollars for your option? For...more Forza & Halo? That's...you? :-/

JBSleek737d ago

Well your changing the entire premise of the article. It was about keeping an Xbox One as a constant but in your scenario you got rid of the Xbox One.

Well why would you do that. You clearly bought it for the exclusive games. If you wanted to play superior multiplatform games you would own a PC.

Also in your agreement you aren't paying only $400 for a PS4 because you said you already bought an Xbox One assuming it's the $500 and you traded for a PS4 so you end up spending the same money.

Quote from you " If I had an Xbox One, and was feeling gaming woes, then instead of paying an extra $200 for a PS3 on top of the $400-$500 for the Xbox One, I'd just trade that in and get a PS4"

Therefore you already had an Xbox One and traded it for a PS4 which isn't an even trade so you ended up paying for a PS4 as well be that less money but still.

Dontworrybhappy737d ago

Really? Getting down voted for an opinion?!

CJQNSNYC737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

LOL! This site seems to exist to push Sony products as hard as they can....period! Even to the point of attacking PC and all things Microsoft. Anyone who doesn't think PS everything equals GOD is seen as out of step on this site.

Why not suggest trying something new, whichever platform you choose?

Ezz2013737d ago

yes people can DISAGREE with that opinion
it's opinion after all

TheRedButterfly737d ago

Roommate's got his ancient fatty, so I'll be using that for my Miku and Persona gaming. :)

hkgamer737d ago

what if they already own a ps3 and not have a 360?

this article should be, anyone who doesnt own a current gen system maybe try buy a last gen system you never owned.

MonstaTruk737d ago

I guess they were trying to imply that if you had to go back to 7th gen gaming, that PS3 would be the best choice. Which, if lifetime sales were any indication (still won the gen after starting a year behind the 360), a lot of other gamers believe that also. So does this guy... ;-)

JBSleek737d ago

So are you going to pretend that Wii never existed because it won last generation.

And no... Don't say Wii wasn't competing with PS3 and Xbox 360 due to being lower powered... Generations are defined by time periods not power.

hkgamer737d ago

i think the article was more about play the games you missed last gen.

i just think most people presume lots of 360 owners moved onto ps4. that is true, however know one thought about ps3 owners moved onto the xbone.

mediate-this736d ago (Edited 736d ago )

Won the gen by a super small margin, like two million if that. You fanboys draw the weakest straws. They are neck and neck, ps3 did not blow 360 out of the water, so stop with the crazy exaggeration.

tommygunzII737d ago

Even PS3 owners still have a mountain of games to play. That's really the point of the article, the vast selection of great games that many missed out on.

hkgamer736d ago

then how bout ps4 owners not owning a ps3?

shouldnt the author just say, go out and buy a ps3?
