Here we will find out if the PlayStation 3 is worth its money.
Yes it is.
Here they come.... EDIT: Suprised that Home wasn't mentioned. Its actually really good now. Everythings faster and more streamlined.
It was mentioned. Under "Virtual Community".
Well it's definitely one of the best investments I made.
To me, the 60gb model was not worth the $500+ price tag. That shit yellow bricked on me twice. The PS3 slim however, for $299 is very well worth the money.
PC: It only does everything (unlike the PS3 claims).
say what you want, but i've gone through more computers than i have consoles. not only that, you get what you pay for when it comes to pc's. regardless of what you say, you can't buy a pc that can deliver triple-a console-quality titles for $300.
i bought mine at 600$ launch day and still working :)
They say couple year old pc can run most games max and don't need to upgrade. But can you run dx11 games max? The problem with pc games is it evolve beyond the hardware too quickly. PC games isn't popular cause the majority of people don't know how to build thier own PC.
Conloles, can you wake me up when Uncharted 2, or any of the other PS3 exclusives get released for the PS3? Thanks, bro.
That's embarrassing. I tried to be funny and screwed it up. Totally meant Uncharted 2 on PC.
It is the only console that gives "Value for Money". Too bad uneducated / brainwashed zombies buy other SUBHD consoles. @ CONLOLES Name a PC that gives consumer satisfaction & VARIETY OF GAMES for 10 years
Blu-Ray, internet, (great)games, free communication(video/text),etc, etc... It only does everything.
Except this http://share.blog.us.playst... So if I was to say. Xbox It only does everything. You would agree with me? I'll try that on a Xbox article, and we will see how well that goes :) EDIT: lol actually I was being serious, I'm going to post that and see what happens.
There's a reason why we have hyperbole's and understatements. It's not "It Literally Does EVERYTHING" and there's a reason for it. Attempting To Be A Smartass...... pending.....pending..... FAILED. @above - Yeah, why not? Oh, I get it! You're doing the old "well, what if the tables were turned" trick. Nice try, bro. Am I literally supposed to jump on top of my Xbox 360 or what? Jump In. "No, I'll break it!" Nice try, broski. EDIT 2: Do it up, bro. Seriously, I wanna see it. lol
Hey T9x69 can you watch this movie... http://www.amazon.com/Dark-... wait maybe they have it on HD-DVD, oh wait...
If every tagline was literal, I'd be stuck trying to fit into my 360's disc drive while my PS3 just watches and laughes. Cuz, you know, it can do everything. "Oh, it does everything... EXCEPT THIS, MUAHAHAHA!" Oh man, what has this world come to. hahaha
Yea it is, my ps3 makes me sleep better during the night
Tat T9 is an idiot and yet he called other people idiot.He thinks tat he knows everything better than everyone else.Wat a loser Try make 360 better than ps3 is also an idiotic act.
a good investment. Especially with the games...has most of the best games this gen BTW...more than a good investment, it's a steal!
I got mine when it was $600, and since then it has certainly justified itself. A product is only as expensive as much as it isn't used.
Funnily enough I buy games systems to play games, not to make an investment. What is that article/your post trying to say? "Buy a PS3 because its a sound investment, never mind the games it offers you should get it because uselles crap blu ray and wifi?.
I think the writer is saying that the PS3 has a great value for it's worth...
Evidently you also buy game systems to repeatedly pay for the right to use code that was already in the game you paid for, and on a peer to peer connection. Smart move.
Obviously. The reason why anyone would buy any other console is becuase they either really love Halo or they're just uninformed. Most are just uninformed.
I really love Halo, lol. To add on to what you said, I think that Microsoft understands that multiplayer games are a must. And when a person is considering buying a console, he's going to see how many of his friends have either console. Just yesterday a friend of mine who vowed to never buy a console told me that he's going to get one in 2 weeks. He's not uninformed about the consoles. He knows which one has the better tech and the most exclusives, but most of his friends have only 360s and I'm the only one who had a PS3 amongst us. So I told him that if he's looking to play mutliplayer with friends, a 360 is a better option, and he knows it.
Exactly, I think you should pick the console that most of your friends have. Take it from someone that used to have both systems and my 360 got more playing time simply because that's what most of my friends were playing. The PS3 is a powerhouse for sure, but it's no fun without anyone to play with.
Funny, but it's the exact opposite in my reality. The only people I know who have a 360 now are my two little brothers, who co-own one that's never been on XBL and hasn't been turned on since Gears of War 2. Every single one of my friends who had a 360 no longer has one. They all have PS3s and all say that XBL isn't worth paying for. My two little brothers each have a PS3 by the way.
Soad/immortal, people have to know that you can have new friends in less than a week on each consoles, multiplayer is also perfect on ps3. you d' better try to convince others pour xbox players to buy the better hardware/exclusives than force your poor friend to buy an xbox to play with them.
I honestly don't know why MysticStrummer is getting more agrees than I am. I didn't bash the PS3 in any way...so what's the problem? Seriously, grow up.
the author is the one to blame, he knows this is pure flaimbait.and a personal question to him. IF THE PS3 IS NOT A GOOD INVESTMENT...WHAT IS? and to T9X69... is the 360 a good investment in your opinion? or is it that you do not like new technology and moving forward?
Obviously something that makes you money like say a skill. No one thinks gaming is an investment. Entertainment isn't an investment. Actualy saying that makes it sound expensive. Plus really bad salesmen use that talk. The friend thing makes more sense though.
Blu-ray alone makes it a pretty good investment.
it only does everything baby, only does everything
then it's the best investment you can make right now because it has the best exclusive lineup and it's the only console out there that is future proof and it has fucking blu ray.
YES. i hate these stupid articles; what is this like the millionth article about this crap for all systems?
yep, just try and get a bundle from the store where you buy it. I got 2 blu ray films, extra controller and blu ray remote. definately worth it
Is the PlayStation 3 a good Investment? TOTALLY...
Sony has been manufacturing the PS3 at a loss for the last four years. Even the high priced $599 launch units were sold at a loss. This pattern of selling ps3s at a loss has produced $5 billion in losses to date. Distributed over the approx. 35 millon ps3s installed, this is a monumental loss of about $140 per ps3 unit sold. Wait.. so, Sony has taken an average $140 loss per ps3 sold? Damn! There can be NO doubt that Sony has fallen over themselves to get this item into the homes of consumers. The ps3 is a fabulous investment of technology for the average consumer. Sony has, with every ps3 sold, included $140 of extra investment value, taking the loss on the chin, like a champion. Who wins? Consumers, of course. Who loses? Sony shareholders, but who cares, right? What's a little annoying though, is that along with a decrease in price, in time, has come a reduction in features. Backwards compatibility has gone the way of the dodo and it's probably best not to mention Linux and the ill-fated 'home' debacle'. IMO, the best value of all is a 80gb or 60 gb launch unit with backwards compatibility. Pick one of those up secondhand for a good price and you have a sweetest sweet deal of all the sweet deals in the sweet universe, as long as it don't YLOD.
lol microsoft lost billions on the RROD, E74 and will soon lose more on RLOD
Loved the PS1 and PS2. Even though the press ripped apart the console at Launch, I figured it'd be a good investment like its predecessor. Now I can laugh at all my friends who recently have wanted to buy a PS3.
YES! It is a great investment. I don't know of any other electronics device that gives you more bang for your buck.
? what kind of question is this. Any console at this point is a good investment.
The article is complete crap: Poor spelling, highly unprofessional, and asks such a lazy question to create such a lazy article to get lazy hits. Not to mention that the answer is painfully obvious. How many times are we going to see a "Is the PS3 worth it/Why the PS3 is worth it" article? It's just lazy writing. So sad that this got approved, goes to show you how poor the screening process is.
Ha ha...screening process? What screening process!!?? It's pathetic how sad this trend of flamebait "journalism" has gotten as of late on this site. Almost makes it unbearable to visit.
Even the word "lazy" seems like an understatement for this article. And if he's going to create a list of things a gaming console has maybe he should include...I don't know...the games in it's library.
You're right. Stupid question and article.
I hope this article doesn't get approved. I can assure the writers of said article that most people on this site will agree that the PS3 is a good investment. I'm also sure I've read this article or some derivative of it at some point not too long ago. We don't need the same article being written and approved over and over again.
um, hell YEAH!!! easy question, easy answer
Depending on how you use it yes...I use my PS3 for everything: wireless video streaming to my tv via PC, wireless netflix, blu-ray, games, music, file storage, etc.... Regardless of other equally valuable items in the market now, yes the PS3 is worth it as are many other things as well!
This article was clearly written by a young teen. lol
I suggest not to pick a side on these things, eventually you are gonna end up with 1 bubble and 50 disagree.. Gotta love n4g.
There's a particular side that one can take, and... I'm just going off of rumors, but there's a side that you *can* take, that may garner many agrees and bubbles. But this is just a rumor, I heard.
I got a PS3 slim back in March (God of War III, duh!) and I am loving it! The only thing that kinda sucks is the XMB, it is ugly and not very user friendly but other than that you can't go wrong with the PS3 exclusives and free online!
Pretty sure it is. At least for me it is. I wonder why you would waste your time writing this article. At this point in the lifecycle all of the consoles are a good investment. If they weren't you would hear major complaining from everyone. Fans, major media outlets, etc.
A ps3 article can not be made these days without mentioning the 360.
Yeah it is!!!
and I still think it was worth the investment maybe even more so now then before since they removed a couple features.
ps3=blu ray,free wifi,free online,best exclusives 360=hd dvd,pay $50 to have fun with your friends,play halo and gears,inevitable red rings of death i think il get a ps3
It only has a dvd drive, the hd dvd drive was seperate and they stopped making them.
Get up to date. The 360 now also has free Wi-Fi and the RROD is no longer an issue. Free online doesn't equal better online, and which console has the better exclusives comes down to a player's taste.
RROD is still a major issue with at least 38 mil consoles with the problem. And PSN is free and it as 95% as good as LIVE.
@N4PS3FANBOYS..no way,free wifi was announced like a month ago,im pretty sure every 360 owner out there jus bought the new xbox to get free wifi,umm no.go tell the hundreds of gamers that are getting red rings everyday that red rings is no longer an issue.and the best selling exclusives for xbox is halo n gears thats all im saying..there arguably the best exclusives for the xbox right now..AND AS FOR ONLINE..360=pay 50 dollars a year to shoot people in cod online..ps3=do that for free
.free online? .goty's? .home? .rechatgable remotes? .sixthaxis? .steamworls? .webbrowser? .printer? .reliable hardware? bluray? did you forget these?
not ALL SKUs have wifi. The PS3 has one version, the 20GB. But that has been halted early.
Well the psn has a webbrowser wich is amazing and I don't need to turn on my pc no more. I have been downloading "free DVD quality movies" to my ps3 and you can't beat that. Thanks to stagevu.com ;) It's free.
Honestly (ready for disagrees but I'm being honest)....it depends For me, I've always been an Xbox gamer and enjoy their franchises the most. Right now, I've got MLB 10 The Show (awesome game) and GOW: Collection for my PS3 plus some blurays. For the amount I use it....is it worth the 300 bucks? Probably not. The free online doesn't bother me because I can afford it plus I love Halo online and so I have Live anyway. The Bluray is nice but I won't fully realize it until I get out of college and can afford a 46" 1080p TV with surround sound. The exclusives don't appeal to me personally. I'm not a huge stealth action gamer like MGS4 (though I will eventually play it). I'm thinking about buying LBP2 and Killzone 3 however so eventually it will probably be worth it. It's a very subjective question depending on who is answering. Just fact wise, yes it's worth it with the bluray, games, etc.....but everyone has a different idea of what's worth it to them. Do they like the Sony exclusive games or do they like MS franchises better? Do they really care if it's Bluray movies or not? I don't think it's a cut and dry answer
Two games over 20? I'd probably go with the 20, MS has little franchises.
