BF: The PS3 might be dated now but it has stood the test of time for over a decade.
I still often use my PS3 to this day
To be honest play more on it then on ps4 lately, playing spec ops the line never had time to play it before , vanquish , medal of honor airborn , and soon dead space trilogy again .
Nah PS3 is a waste of time. Always updating and installing something. It's too slow to navigate and play.
Spec ops was great picked it up recently. Has surprising depth to it's story. I still need to play dead space myself, lol can't say why iI never played that series yet.
As odd as this may be... I actually like looking for PS3 games i havent played more so than looking for PS4 or XB1 games. Mainly because collecting for the 360 and Ps3 is pretty cheap and you dont have to install the full game to the hdd in order to play.
I still have my "fat" PS3 with backwards compatibility and it continues to work. I did open it up and replace the thermal paste some time ago, but since then it has been running great. It's nice to have a single machine that can play all my PS1, PS2 and PS3 games.
Thermal paste. I wonder if that's why my og PS3 yellow lighted. Maybe if I replace the paste it'll come back to life hmmmmmm
Still rocking my PS3 as well.
The console that introduced us to Uncharted, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, MGS4(the last best MGS game) TLOU etc. Legendary Console still have mine
totally agree about MGS4 (probably my best AAA game on PS3) ...also will be the last and forever exclusive MGS on Playstation ....even if a remake/remaster be developped , it wont count as it wont be Kojima s game....
MGS4 was how I started that generation by getting the bundle with 80GB BC model. So many memories :3
You can't forget the Witcher 2.
You're joking correct? That was PC and 360 only.
@solidgear3 don't mind the clown he's only saying that cause I made an error a long time back mentioning witcher2 when I meant to say castlevania LoS2 for the Ps3. He and his gang are allover me for that
I wondered why that kept being brought up whenever chris commented. i even went looking for the witcher 2 on ps3 and only found it on 360. I figured it had to be an error in commenting but some people just dont know when to let go of things. Like those who keep harping on the 'could have been' for the DRM on xb1. It didnt happen so it's okay to drop it and move on.
#neverforget #witcher2 #definitive version
It's easy to confuse Witcher 2 and Castlevania Lords of Shadow for PS3. I do it all the time....
PS3 does still reek of awesomeness. Hell, I'm on it right now playing Red Dead Redemption as I browse through n4g and I still have quite a backlog on the PS3 to this day. However, it would be even more awesome if I didn't have to put up with these annoying PSN connection issues on the PS3 for the last year and a half. All my other devices like my Vita, PS4, Laptop and phone don't suffer from these issues but my PS3 does for some reason. That is NOT so awesome...
I love that just because you posted a legit complaint about a ps console, u get dislikes all around. Sums up the n4g fanbase really.
This is true. Hell, on N4G you can state the most legit factual arguments which make total sense in regards to the topics at hand and still get dozens of disagrees from people lol. I've been on this site for about 3 years and the more time I spent on it the more I learned to never question question agrees or disagrees or worry about why you got so many of them in the first place. Trust me.. you're only beating a dead horse by doing so lol
It's disagree not dislike. People disagreed with him, get over it.
I disagreed because it seems like an issue (within the context of his comment) that can be fixed immediately by his own hands.
Good to hear someone also has the PSN issue, have you reported it because I dont get a response regarding this.
Nope. Outta curiosity, are you having these PSN issues on the PS3 only or is it happening to you on your other PS systems? PSN works fine on the Vita and PS4. It only acts up on the PS3 for me which I find very odd being that they're all connecting to the same exact network which is PSN. Very irritating to say the least...
@BadBoyC Just on the PS3, others are fine.
Disconnect your PS3 from the internet if you're playing a single player game(s). Unless you left something out with your comment.
Amazing console. Still working my way through the backlog of doom.
Decent console. Currently playing Persona 5 right now.
lol im playing Persona 4 on it now
You must have the fat version? So do I.
I am playing Demon Souls, Tekken Tag Tourny 2 again these days.. and some PS1/PS2 classics off it like Dawn of Mana, Ogre Battle Limited Edition, FF Tactics, Xenogears, Need for Speed Underground 2 (original backwards compatible system and upscaled on my 4K screen thanks to my new AV receiver)
@fran-I actually have the slim version that I'm playing with Persona 4 but I actually own a 60 gig BC version and my family owns a 40 gig version and the Metal Gear Solid Limited Edition version. @ham-after I complete Persona 4 and 5 I'm actually thinking of starting Dawn Of Mana as I purchased it on sale last year. I'm also thinking about replaying Demon's Souls before I start bloonborne.
Sill have mine next to my PS4 Pro.
ya, its a pretty narly paper weight.
This is a topic about PS3 not Xbox One
No thats what my 360 is for. Do you know gamestops only offered me $30 for a 360, so i keep mine for a paperweight
$30 was good if recent
The Ps3 is just like it's predecessors out living the competition and giving the best place to play✌✌
"giving the best place to play" Even as a PS fanboy I can't agree with this. The PS3's dashboard and over all user experience is excruciatingly slow and not intuitive at all. Everything takes forever vs. the 360 (downloads, menus loading, PS Store is slow as balls, background downloading, etc) and the third party games still look better on the 360. I actually bought RDR for the PS3 recently only to borrow the 360 version from a friend and, man, the 360 version looks like a completely different game (in a good way). So yeah, I think the PS3 is the best place to play EXCLUSIVES but over all the 360, as much as it surprises me (haven't owned either console for a long while until recently) is definitely the "best place to play" last-gen.
still have legend of heroes: trails of cold steel 1 and 2 to finish on it x3
I still use it as my primary blu-ray player.
Just bought SoulCalibur II HD Online for mine yesterday. Switch between my ps3 and 4 a lot, due to my massive backlog too.
PS3 is legendary! I've had so many amazing moments with it. By far my favorite PS console.
There no better memory than sniping 2 player trying to get inside a tank in starhawk or shooting down a aircraft with a tank,so many epic moments in starhawk and warhawk 😍
Battlefield offers similar moments daily
@BlackJesu5 isn't battlefield a first person shooter. I can't play fps for more than 1hour without getting motion sickness while I could go for 5-8 playing starhawk a 3rd person shooter
It was my main console for years, sadly I use it less and less now. Still had a great run, longest of all my entertaintv's! devices by far, including tvs!
I still jump on to play some online shooters. Surprisingly, a lot of lobbies in many games are still active.
PS3>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;>>>>PS4
Playing Persona 5, my 1st persona game, on mine, what a wonderfully weird game, like a more anime adult version of psychonauhts meets pokemon meets a faster paced FF
are they good? I never played them before and was thinking about getting into that series?
Start with 4 Golden. GOAT. Persona 5 is good tho...just not as good. Story and writing are a big step down from 4.
Persona is more like a offshoot of SMT..which it is. SMT came before Pokemon. Wen done with Persona 5 play 4. IMO Persona 4 is the best in the series.persona 5 kinda feels like a big step down..minus the dungeons. P5 outshines P4 there.
As I write this, I'm watching a Jan 26, 1997 episode of WWF Superstars on YouTube. Played UC3 online earlier.
My ps3 remote die and i"m shock and awe they still charging 45bucks for a new ds3 remote wtf. I cant play my tales of grace and xiia games :(
Mine too. The venom official wired is excellent at £15 on Amazon. Really nice pad and responsive
Ds4 have been going on sale for between 30-40 check Amazon
Fave system last gen. TBH Even at this stage I like my PS4 far more than the PS3 and I really liked the PS3.
Still the best console of last gen.
I just bought Fallout 3 and The Darkness to play on PS3. People should try The Darkness more it's an amazing FPS! Music of it is seriously rocks!
Beat the first one, will be picking up the darkness 2 for under 5.oo , what a deal.
I loved the PS3, still sat next to my PS4 because I have a huge collection that I love to dip back into. Currently thinking of revisiting Shadows of the Damned, a game i really enjoyed, I need a couple of trophies and I will get the platinum.
Best console of all of time
Still have mine fantastic machine, incredible games. Still better than a lot of PS4 games.
Still love mine. Playing Red dead and Yakuza at the moment.
Still use mine and there is still a huge backlog of games that I have to play. Games like U2,3 KZ 2,3 TLOU, RDR, AC and FoM3 still look and play great.
PlayStation 3 is my all time favorite console. Some of my best gaming memories were with it between 2008 to 2015. It was the first time I had seriously gamed since the late 90's. I actually started gaming with the NES back in 1990.
PS3 is a great console but damn after playing pro with 4k upscale you really see the jaggies and digital noise on PS3 games. Ps now probably The way to go on pro. PS3 games look like crap on 4k tvs the same way 480p looked on hdtv's
Absolutely! Like goiNg to the game shop and picking up games that are on sale that are hidden gems. Picked up Mini Ninjas and Spec Ops the line recently . Ps3 still connected to my tv next to my pro.
