Here they come....

EDIT: Suprised that Home wasn't mentioned. Its actually really good now. Everythings faster and more streamlined.

Tony-A4832d ago

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).

EXID4832d ago

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.

Uzesgelen_Goo4832d ago

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.

Biggest4832d ago

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.

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.

T9X694832d ago (Edited 4832d ago )

Except this


So if I was to say.


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.

Tony-A4832d ago (Edited 4832d ago )

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.....


@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

Joule4832d ago

Hey T9x69 can you watch this movie...


wait maybe they have it on HD-DVD, oh wait...

TheTeam064832d ago

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

SniperJDC4832d ago

Yea it is, my ps3 makes me sleep better during the night

FACTUAL evidence4832d ago

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!

Gran Touring4832d ago

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.

knightdarkbox4832d ago (Edited 4832d ago )

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?.

SoSLy4832d ago

I think the writer is saying that the PS3 has a great value for it's worth...

MysticStrummer4832d ago

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.

Imperator4832d ago

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.

SOAD4832d ago

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.

ImmortalLegend4832d ago (Edited 4832d ago )

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.

MysticStrummer4832d ago

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.

n4gno4831d ago

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.

ImmortalLegend4831d ago

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.

Donny4832d ago (Edited 4832d ago )

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?
