Is it worth Buying a ps3 again ?

30 Replies 537 Views Created 16-03-2013

Ok so i had a ps3 and sold it back in 2008 as I had an xbox and still do play it pretty much everyday. but i feel since selling my ps3 all those years back ive missed out on some great games. A ps3 now ? as there are a few games well loads of ps3 games that i would like to play also i was going to buy a blu ray player and while adding an extra £40 on top i could buy a PS3 slim second hand. Thoughts ??

If it's from a retailer who can give you a years warranty then it is a good price, if it's a private sale I'd be a little wary. You never know if it's already on it's way out, it's a bit of a gamble.

Anyway, I'd say it's still very worthwhile buying a PS3 again right now, plenty of past, present and future games to play for a long while yet as Firefox said.

Here's what you need to do if you think you'll want to own a PS3 as of now:

1) Xbox 720, PS4 and Wii U are the next-gen consoles which will be out soon, well, Wii U's out already.
2) Check out the games PS3 has to offer
3) PS3 model which you prefer to own
4) Use PS3 as a Blu-ray alternatively when you don't want to use it any more for games

I can't really suggest anyone to buy a current-gen console now or even Wii U because Wii U's not doing so great as expected.

There's far more hacking on Xbox live than PSN the 360 was breached within months of release, friends and family favour PSN because of this Borderlands 2, GTA IV, Red Dead, Max Payne and COD to name a few have far more hackers on 360 than PS3. Don't get me wrong there is hacking on PS3 but the grass isn't greener on the other side simply avoid the games with hacking communities.
