If you've purchased one of the new consoles, are the older machines collecting dust? Or are you hanging onto the last-gen machines to play catch-up?
Hell no my ps3 is my main game system
Same here. PS3 is still a beast of a machine, I've been playing through the Batman Arkham games for the first time.
I'm still playing my PS3 as well. Recently picked up Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Final Mix and will be picking up KH 2.5 Final Mix after we finished that. My kids and I love those games. My oldest son expressed interest in the Metal Gear series cause he saw me playing Ground Zeroes on PS4 the other day so I'll probably pick up the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection so he can catch up before Phantom Pain drops. My youngest son is always playing Sonic Generations and Black Ops zombies every time I look up. PS3 definitely still getting major playtime in my household.
Nope just started Resistance Fall of Man yesterday. LOL it's so dated but good. Looking forward to playin the other two as well. Next up is Dead Space 2 and 3 PLay Uncharted 3 MP on at least a weekly basis looking into Syndicate with the Mrs. I have to constantly remind myself how hilarious Sonic 06 is like every month or two (I'm never ganna end this game) Still play Starhawk and Twisted Metal on a regular as well No video chat in PS4 so....yea
Nope both my 360/PS3 unplugged and left to collect dust. But to be fair my ps4 and X1 currently collecting dust as I play Witcher 3 on my PC. But I seriously can't wait for Halo 5 so soon one of the new consoles is gonna come alive like none other lool
I game on both Pc an Ps3 most of the time and very very soon ps4 will join them but will never leave ps3 behind ...amazing games that i can't miss
*This belongs elsewhere!*
You're damn right, I'm always on my 360 (don't have a ps3 no offense) playing the ultimate Halo multiplayer, Halo Reach, Red Alert 3, Civ Rev, Halo Wars, Mercenaries Playground of Destruction, BF: Bad Company, Thief 3: Deadly Shadows, Naruto ultimate ninja storm revelations. This generation is lacking in game diversity, stealth & RTS.
Same here got my ps4 building up its library of free games but not getting a look in with my ps3's backlog ;) some truly great games there. Just finished Ico in under 2 hours... Phew! My 360 is still boxed up if I get really desperate but once I finish up with PS3 in next week or 2 it's Wii U and PS4 all the way ;) Zone of the Enders collection, metal gear 3 and shadow of the collosus should see my PS3 out with a bang ;)
Same here. Too many games have been coming out for it that I want to play, and they're unlikely to make it to the PS4. JRPG fan here.
Yep. Packed my 360 away the day my new console arrived. Always say to myself ill get it out one day, but I never have. Ive got a weeks holiday soon, so might get it out, play guitar hero one more time, then take a photo and sell it.
Same here. Day Xbox One arrive, i packed up my 360 and gave it to the son of a very good friend of mine.
My x360 only gets action when I want to play Full House Poker, or my girlfriend needs a DVD/Netflix player. Otherwise, X1 has all the games that I play. Once they port over Full House Poker to X1 (god willing), my X360 will officially retire to the cottage. hopefully E3 is the clincher. Still love the thing. Hopefully it lasts a long time.
I'm wondering why we don't have Poker on X1 too...
Not really, just havent turned my PS3 on since I got BloodBorne and Witcher 3. I LOVE MY PS3!
I still have a large backlog of games to get through on my PS3.
No, I still play my PS3 a lot, a little of my 360. There's still a big backlog waiting for me on these old machines.
yes I have abandoned my Xbox 360, and now only gaming on my PS 4. I'm too lazy to even switch CD's on my console, imagine switching consoles back and forth.
No, my PS3s are still going strong and I bought a used 360 not too long ago. Last gen is still important to me.
yeah 5 years ago
Well since persona 5 and tales of zestria are both going on ps4, I don't see any games I'll be getting for it besides replaying the classics, last game I got for ps3 was kingdom hearts 2.5. BTW ps3 gamers go to the store and get smt notcurne and both devil summoner games, seriously some of the best RPGs you'll ever play especially nocturne, that game blew my mind!!
lol no i still buy games i never got to play on my ps3 and play it frequently.
Yup im now in the new age supreme ps4 days
Yes and no. I never completely abandon a console. I keep my games and I play from time to time. However, I don't buy PS3 games anymore. I think I only bought one since I got my PS4 (at launch).
Yeah, boxed up the 360 and PS3 when the new ones arrived. Having a huge backlog really hurt my motivation to play them and the fresh start on new systems got me back into the way of things. I like being up to date, completing all my games before the next one launches.
Yup but still trying to find a reason to upgrade.
Nope, am still playing Playstation 3 games too. And since the games are so cheap now I am going to buy many of the best games I missed previously.
Sold my PS3 at the beginning of 2014.
Still have my PS2 and the original Xbox. I have too many games for each, so I am not getting rid of them. Just finished Odin's Sphere on the PS2
Did so on almost 19 months ago and not looking back. Time to put that gen to bed and embrace the new one .
I have but after a few months into this gen i wished i had kept my 360 as well.
Not the previous gen nor the ones before that. When that nostalgia kicks I need to be able to fire up my older systems.
my 360 colects dust from about 2 years. PC is my new baby now.
Why should I? Last gen has a lot of games I still wanna play, and this gen is mainly remakes of those games.
Nope, i don't even have a next gen console yet.
Nope, still using my Xbox 360 more than my ONE
Unless I want to go back to an exclusive like rdr or uncharted, then yeah pretty much. I've got everything else on Steam and PS4.
NO! Next Dumb Question please.
No. Primarily game on my PS4 which I got at release but still use my PS3. There have been times when there isn't something I want to play on the PS4 that I've played more on the PS3. Still have a Wii and 360 but haven't touched either in over a year. Got a bit of a backlog on the 360 so I'm not ready to part with it yet.
Peaked, at my xbox 360. That system no longer gets used. ps3 Still gets used a lot. my main console right now as I have a backlog and am tired of staring at them.
Nope, the real games are on the last gen. Thats obvious with all the "remasters" and "remakes" These new current gen machines cant afford to make games like Never dead or Splatterhouse. Where's Maximo?

Up until the start of this year I still played on last gen consoles, but recently I haven't bothered touching them, just too many games out now on new gen.
Nope. If they had sense and put in backward compatibility then I'd gladly trade the ps3 and 360 but there are too many amazing games to leave it behind. Plus how else would I replay Fallout3 since I have it and all the dlc on 360
No... but it's not far off. Other then some exclusives, both PS3 and 360 were basically rotting away starting about 2010. Since I've had my 360 fail on me in 2013 for the 4th or 5th time with various issues, my 2nd RRoD, there was little reason to replace it, especially with many of my favorite games on Steam for $2-10 and being much better looking and running. Now we've gotten and are still slated to get a bunch of remasters. Then when you consider all the sales you get now on console and PC..whether you mean Sony Flash Sales or Steam Summer sales...or GoG, or GMG, or G2A, or Origin, or Uplay, or GamersGate, Amazon, etc, etc.... whether it's console or PC, there's tons of cheap games on the newer systems. For the average person why pay $5 for a game you passed up five years ago for a game on PS4/XB1/PC that just came out a few months ago that you can also buy for $5? Of course sometimes that'll be the case, but for the most part, you'll get the better version of the same game for just as cheap or a few pennies more on PS4/XB1/PC. At this point PS3/360 are just like any other old console or whatever you might have that you boot up to play old games you still love. So basically retro gaming. Of course if you don't have a PS4/XB1/PC then the answer is going to of course be that it's still your main system, but as we look around, it's days have past and many games are being announced next-gen only, and this will only increase until support on PS3/360 is very few and far between. They are fine for retro gaming, but that's what they are now.
Still play RDR sometimes
Yes, not enough time to justify going back.
Nope, only people who got into gaming last gen would do that, or unless you hated the console.
There is no reason to abandon them.I repeat,not a single one. ( to me that means PS3 is still holding up).
Nope. I got a 148 arcade games and MS keep giving me more games every month for free.My backlogue is crazy!
I go back and forth between PS3 and PS4 mostly. Right now playing Witcher 3 on PS4 and it's addicting and amazing
Psshhhhh dude I still play my N64 at least once a month. My 360 is still used fairly often, for games and movies. Xbox One is personally king right now because of Witcher 3 and Halo MCC. Old Wii data on Wii U, so that still gets used too. I'm a gamer for life. I don't think I could pack up my systems and store them anywhere. If it were up to me, I would have a tv for every console I own and have them hooked up permanently
I moved my PS3 to my office and hooked my 360 up to the HDMI input on my Xbox One. I'm definitely gaming more on my Xbox One and PS4, but the library for the PS3 and 360 are still very good today.
With two free games every month with PS+, I am nowhere near done with my PS3 and probably won't be for a long time. And the PS4 is not backward compatible, so I'd lose a load of great games if I dropped the PS3.
Well I have nothing to play on PS3, so its collecting dust. Unless im watching videos, which PS4 sadly cannot do.
Nope and I don't plan on upgrading systems for awhile. Haven't even bought a 1080p tv yet only have my 720p. Still have my ps3 and a large backlog of games and going to get p5 and tales of zestiria for my ps3 too.
I use my PS3 to play plus games every once in a while but most of my gaming is done on a PS4.
PS3 is too good a console to just completely throw away
No way. I fact I'm investing in more last gen. I can play all the games on all the consoles for about the same price as a new console. I'm doing just fine with PC, 360, PS3 and a Wii. There are so many cheap games for last gen console to keep me busy for the next couple years. Besides I have a nice beefy PC to play all the new games.
Since I've only gotten 3 games for this generation, and my ps4 can't play music cds, or read a usb stick with photos, or play a movie that was burned on a disc, or transfer images or music, no, I have not given up on the last gen. In many ways the ps3 is better than the ps4.
I'm still waiting on a game worth getting a PS4 or the One for. In the meanwhile, The XBox 360 is what's hooked up though I haven't played anything on it since Halo 4 back in February.
Nah, I just bought and started playing Demons Souls. PS3 just has nicer UI too. Im currently switching between Bloodborne (PS4) and Demons Souls (PS3) back and forth. Theres quite a few PS3 games that I still want to play and finish (but I dont have a huge backlog), such as the R&C Future series, potentially the Resistance series and few others, gotta buy then first though. Then again, PS4 is potentially going to have plenty of good games next year... Im waiting for Rime, No Mans Sky, R&C Reboot, possibly TLG... Maybe Im revisiting Alien Isolation and Finish DB Xenoverse.
