Now Is the Time to Buy a PS3

On the fence? Can't decide which next-gen video game console to buy? Well, now, more than ever, is the time to pick up a PlayStation 3 from the local Walmart.

I wonder why we never see articles like this begging people to buy the 360....

Boody-Bandit5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

but this P8i site wreaks of teenage blunder.

That comment at the top of the article is racist IMO and for that reason alone should not have been approved. Either write articles on gaming or on comedy. Like I said yesterday about their COD4 is still King of FPS PS3 gaming, they failed at both.

How can anyone give this site even a little credibility with nonsense like that? I would be shocked if anyone over the age of 21 is writing for this new blog site. If they are all I can say is wow, that's sad.

"Last year was an abysmal reck for the Xbox 360 when it came to actual video games. Few exclusives were released, and those that were made few ripples in the gaming community, compared to the PlayStation 3 which was overwhelmed with hit titles. Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Little Big Planet, SOCOM: Confrontation, and Resistance 2 which all received critics’ acclaim, and boosted the system to an all new level."

And the worst part is that he actually believes that. I mean Gears 2 alone had more impact than LBP, Resistance 2, and Socom all together. Funny how he forgets Fable 2 or NG2 for instance but sure didnt forget SOCOM... lol yeah right...

Boody-Bandit5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

not because I don't have opinions but only because I own both consoles and those type of conversations lead no where.

What does work my last nerve though is the hypocrisy of people complaining about certain bloging sites being approved and then allowing this garbage site to get their stories approved back to back.

These articles are poorly written opinionated trash. They are stereo typing gamers and making back handed racial remarks. I responded to it on their site (P8i) and they deleted it. All I said was they should remove their racial remarks if they want to be taken seriously.

People b!tch about HHG (not a fan nor a hater of HHG. If you look over my small but recent history you will see what I had to say about his articles and show) and then allow garbage like this on N4G. You can't have it both ways N4G members. This P8i site is trash.

"and here we go"

sonarus5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

activision will drop PS3 soon guys because they hate selling games. I threw my PS3 away yesterday...we all need to do the same

rucky5478d ago

I ate mine. With some bacon it's pretty good

Boody-Bandit5478d ago

most likely more wont than will without the /s after the sentence. Although I know from your past history on N4G you could give a sh!t. I just thought I'd throw that out there for you just to help ease the blood letting.

evrfighter5478d ago

now is the time to buy a ps3?

sweet!! was there a $100 price cut I missed?

Masta_fro5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

its just that the price is a little high for some (not all) people.

All you gotta do is ask around, tons and tons of people want a ps3, its just that the price holds them back is all.

So this is how it works, those saving up for a games console and want one NOW, even though they want a ps3, they look at the price and say.."wow man, i know its great deal with all you get but i just cant afford it, even though that blu ray is tempting"

So they go home and think about it, call up a few friends, which more than likely have 360's and they say "well what the hell all my friends have one so watever, ill just get a ps3 later on..."

Then there's that other group...Microsoft lovers, or playstation lovers...they walk into that store and know what theyre going to buy...

Ps3 buyers prob had ps2's and they are positive its not worth buying a console without those type of games...Plus they know sony is quality, plus youre getting and all in one entertainment piece!

360 buyers, are just as convinced, they've seen gears of war and prob played through it...plus all the kids talk about it because, well, more people own it, and suddenly it all feels right, even though they all know about the rrod, they continue in typical human fashion "it wont happen to me".

Watever, for me the time to own a ps3 was at launch...it came the second i played resistance online, it came the second i put in Uncharted (holy sh!t) it came the second it was announced.

In the meantime, i bought an xbox controller, and bam, PC and PS3...almost like having both consoles, and i cant be happier.

Yes i agree now is a better time than ever, but if your still console less, then i think youve already made a choice. I dont know what it is, and i dont care, but ill bet youll be happy with it.

Narutone665478d ago

The price was cheap for me and at a time when PS3 was being bashed left and right for having no games, etc. It was the best deal I got, being it is a BC 60GB PS3. I have been using it for a long time now without any problem. I am now looking forward to buying a second one for the bedroom when the price comes down.
BTW, the BC 60GB PS3 is selling for twice the price I got for it in yahoo or ebay.

Masta_fro5478d ago

i just baught ma second one!

I just wanted to add, people forget what happens when ps3's go on sale...a 50 dollar price cut on amazon for a day, boosted its sale to number one in the whole electronics department...

120gb ps3 *60gb original.

The best purchase of an electronic device i have made in my life.
Its kinda funny, i think of it as my baby...always cleaning it and stuff with watery joyous eyes haha.

Guitarded5478d ago

Wake me up when the thing is $200. Then it will be worth the price.

onanie5478d ago

Why should anyone bother to wake u up, guitar?

Boody-Bandit5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

Why don't we wake you when you have a response worth reading?
So let's say uh never.
Good night.

poopface15478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

WHY THE HELL DOES IT SAY TO GET IT AT WALLMART. I wouldnt buy it at wallmart, as I like places that let you choose the one you want yourself. not have someone get it from behind the glass. Not that it matters, but wallmart and ps3s dont go together, at least not for me.

Im not trying to be argumentative but isnt this article wrong, I mean if you were gonna tell people to get a ps3 wouldnt you want to tell them about the imminent price cut, or even the slim ps3(no likely) that might happen later this year.

below--- alot of ps2 people will buy ps3, but may also buy a 360. Last gen I had ps2 then bought xbox. this gen I have 360 and will buy ps3 later. For the people who want both alot will probably get the one that comes out first. I think this gen though you really can be content with just a 360 or just a ps3.

Boody-Bandit5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

This site is ran by kids like I said in the open zone. This article isn't even worth printing out on paper to wipe your back side with. And WTF is up with their back handed racial comment trying to be funny? That's not funny and it certainly isn't journalism.

Try posting a comment on their site giving an opinion about their article(s). It tells you wait for moderation. Unless it's positive they wont approve it.

If they wont allow freedom of speech on their site then why give them a voice here?

N4Flamers5478d ago

I have to say i do love my ps3. I got it with advent children which is so beautiful. I've only been playing infamous and i did take a punch in the wallet, but Im happy with the choice.

So far i dont plan to renew my xbo live gold, and now i actually have a choice about what game to get.

dragunrising5478d ago

Why do we need so many articles on "now is the time to buy a ps3." As if we need this article to tell us why. The games speak for themselves. If anything, I would hold off on buying a ps3 until the eventual price drop.If you spent $100 more a month or two before the price drop, that would suck. Otherwise I'm not sure who the article is catering to. If you have the money to buy a PS3 and were interested in one...wouldn't you already have one? Thats why I think the article is missing the point. Price conscious people are waiting for the PS3 price drop. Trying to convince them to buy one before then makes little sense. My guess is that the PS3 will drop right before or after Madden 2010 comes out. If I didn't have one already, I would be marking my calender.

Silly gameAr5478d ago

Just to give you and a few others bubbles Masta_fro. Great comment.

RumbleFish5478d ago

anybody who does not recognize the PS 3's worth has my pity.

and anybody who want's the PS 3 to drop to 200$ is on drugs and misses a great time with some of the best games ever made.

One 80GB in the living room, one 60GB in the bedroom and xmas there will be the third in my bureau. PS 3 FTW!

Syronicus5478d ago

Have a bubble. I agree completely that only those looking to flame are those who say it is not worth the price. First off, many of those saying that bought the 360 when it released for 400 bucks and it comes with no WiFi, a DVD drive and at the time of launch, a 20 gig hard drive. For the same price you get a BD player, WiFi, 80 gig HDD and a large library of great games. If people don't see the value in the PS3, it's because they have not opened their eyes in the past 12 to 15 months.

edgeofblade5478d ago (Edited 5478d ago )

The time for buying a PS3 has already come. Honestly, I would have reservations this time last year (despite owning one as far back as early '08), but the time of the PS3 came this spring.

But owning THREE PS3's? That's little psychotic, don't you think?
