Kotaku : Should you buy a PlayStation 3?

The PlayStation 3 got off to a slow start when the console first launched in 2006. Since then, it has picked up some serious steam and has come into its own. Is now a good time to take the plunge? [UPDATED for the fall season of video games.]

Counter question -- Should we even go to this worthless site to find out?

Joule2796d ago (Edited 2796d ago )

This is a rhetorical question?

rroded2796d ago

n as biased as ever
check out this quote for lolz

"But What If I've Already Got A Xbox 360? Should I Buy One Now?

No. Well, unless you have money to burn, that is. One high-end system is probably enough, and more and more games are released on both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. To decide between the PS3 and the Xbox 360, it's best to decide on the console exclusives. If you feel that you must have titles like God of War III or Metal Gear Solid 4, then the PS3 is the console for you"

lol should b keep to your 360 if all you wanna play is halo fable n gears if you want variety and the best exclusive its only on the ps3.

chrisnick2796d ago

lmao at the person who posted: "no I already have a wii".

and to the guy who responded:" Should you buy a car?
No I already have Roller blades" are my hero.

SaberEdge2796d ago

Of course you should. There are way too many great games on the PS3 to be without it.

Lifendz2796d ago

Yeah, I read the 360 version of this article when I was contemplating getting a 360 just to get a list of older games I could get at a bargain.

This article is about as objective as Kotaku gets. Unfortunately, when you juxtapose this with the Move launch article, the GT5 slowdown articles, etc, it probably leads to most people thinking this isn't the most credible site for this sort of stuff.

If you call yourself a gamer then yea, you should own one. PS3 is the only place you'll find the GOTYs for 2008 and 2009 along with a very large variety of genre-pushing titles. Without a 360 you miss out on Halo and Gears. Without a PS3 you miss out on everything.

danielle0072796d ago


I bought a PS3 for the exclusives, and I don't regret it. But you, sir, are definitely overstating it. The 360 has variety, too, you just have to look for it.

karl2796d ago

i dont know why u said that...

there is no variety on that console whatsoever.

and if u actually find it it comes from third party studios... and guess what.. those make ps3 games aswell

oh wait.. 360 exclusives also come from third party studios.. and end up on ps3 eventually aswell...

just accept it people.... the only excuse for buying a 360 is being a fanboy...

Microsoft's marketing department kotaku, in full swing just in time for the holiday season.

xAlmostPro2796d ago

i was actually going to give 'props' to kotaku(for the fist time ever)until i got the part which states..

"PS3s support Bluetooth and USB headsets, but the lack of a packed-in headset with new systems has diminished the likelihood that people with whom you play an online game even have a headset plugged in."

Are people still making this comment? ok yeah there wasnt many mics for awhile, but now almost every game i join has people with mics like 95% of the time.. and games like COD, during the sort of hardcore player gametypes such as search & destroy/headquarters/dominatio n etc have pretty much a full lobby of mics most games. its quite annoying that people still use and say this.. even worse so-called 'respectable' websites lol

its like because the ps3 has made such good progress and proving itself over and over against all the BS claims and stuff, they just resort to things like "well ps3 has no headsets" "psn is laggy" "ps3 multiplats are terrible" lol

dont get me wrong i play pc/ps3/360.. but the ps3 for some reason does get alot of 'hate' when i see it as the best CONSOLE on the market :/

MsmackyM2796d ago

The last thing I want to do is turn on my PS3, and hear some fat sweaty kid talk about how his online gaming prowess, equates to his sexual conquests.

TK4212796d ago

The article should be about whether you should bother to buy a 360.

Scotland-The-Brave2796d ago

There is an article from kotaku about that .
Its on the main page.

tacosRcool2796d ago

Everybody who owns a HDTV should.

vhero2796d ago

@Baltis - I agree I am not gonna bother they are the biggest 360 fanboy site around..

''What Are The Best Games On The PS3? ANSWER UPDATED''

Even with an updated answer, the author ignore other best Games for PS3, let me add some:

Demon's Souls
ModNation Racers
Heavy Rain
R&C Games
Sport Champions
And a lot more biggest games.

Also the author should add Gran Turismo 5 also, this game define the PlayStation Franchise.

callahan092796d ago

He didn't mention Demon's Souls? For shame! The others are all great games as well (except ModNation Racers... it was good, but not great. Not enough freedom to allow users to give their levels a truly unique visual style. Every level, despite having unique features, course lines, etc., still LOOKED too similar to the others in terms of visual presentation. And the load times were pretty long. I liked the game, but didn't love it).

being_in_itself2796d ago

He did mention Demons Souls (as mentioned below by jerethdagryphon). I'd also add, and I'll get some shit for a title, the following:

-Heavenly Sword - sick game, wish trophy support would come and a sequel.
-MLB The Shows - how do you omit the BEST baseball franchise out there, hell, the only baseball franchise out there imo.
-Ninja Gaiden Sigmas
-Resistances - how in the hell did they omit these????
-HD Remakes such as GOW series and next year SOTC
-Lair W/ THE CONTROLLER DL - this will be where I get shat upon. I personally couldn't play Lair at first. I bought it early b/c Factor 5's Rogue Squadron games on Gamecube were sick. I just never touched it after a few tries but then the DL came. After that, loved the game.

Non-Exclusives (they, after all, listed some):

-If they list Oblivion for Xbox, which they did, list it for PS3 as its a far better version and includes DLC (I unfortunately don't have it, I did EVERYTHING and had all DLCs for the Xbox version but lately have seriously contemplated buying the PS3 version as well b/c it may just be my fave game this generation).
-Soon to be ME2

theEx1Le2796d ago

I do believe that there is a huge chunk of dlc missing on the ps3 version, perhaps thats why they listed it for xbox

Beahmscream2796d ago

Sport Champions really? How about MAG!

jerethdagryphon2796d ago

they list a few heavy hitters not a ocmplete collection demons souls is mentioned

once gt5 is released and reviewed if 'worthy' it will be added

surprising there answer is most likly

unless you have a 360

Blaster_Master2796d ago

If you want a console that does more than shooters, get a ps3.
