Interested in a PS3

So, gang, I have a 360. Lately, though, I've been very displeased with the system. Basically, there are no games on it that interest me. I'm a Halo fan, but I'm not a big FPS fanboy, which seems to be the 360's main draw. Any other games on the 360 that I like are also on PS3.

I noticed that one of the PS3 models got a price cut, and after researching on some of the titles for the system, I'm a bit interested.

I still need some convincing, though. So this is where you all come in. Can you all sell me on the idea of buying a PS3?

And I'll note: this isn't meant to be a PS3 vs. 360 thread.

LBP, MotorStorm, ModNation Racers. Those exclusives are good. The PS3 has quite a lot of JRPGs too. Other than exclusives, online play is obviously free. Changing your name may mean making an account but at least you don't have to pay. Free blu-ray player? Loads of other bonuses but you know, a console is for games.

Well the main draw to the PS3 for me was its library, I feel that it is better than the 360's. Though that is just my opinion. I also prefer the PS3's controller, but then again that's just me. That, and PSN is free, so I guess that helped. :3

There's a bunch of other stuff like it being a Blu-Ray player and all that jazz, just icing on the cake to me.

and if you decide to pay up for PS+, its a much better deal than XBL and you actually get things out of it. (last longer and you get waaaaaaaaaaaay more out of it)

and yeah, ps3 controller is much better. It doesn't die every 6 hours.







and its not ugly

While i do feel like everybody needs convincing, by implying you need selling on the system is also implying you don't want to hear any of its negative flaws.
I'm no fanboy i've owned both systems respectively and i played ps2 a hell of alot more so sony does have a softspot in my heart.
BUT.

Game Installing, i understand the reason and in truth it's not that long but when you get home with that brand new game you've been dying to play its really annoying every time.

-Marketplace downloading, Sometimes you can't even background download it and you can't download anything while playing games far as i've seen

-System updates, Gives you plenty of time to make a cup of tea, do the laundry or perhaps read that book you've been really wanting to get into, i'm not kidding you its a REALLY long time.

-Trophies, while in no means bad. Viewing your own trophies is a bitch, if your familiar with xbox you know you only have to press a on your achievements and bam there they all are. Everytime you load up your trophies it has to syncronise which takes the best part of 5 minutes or more depending on how many trophies you have. So if your a trophie/g whore then your really going to despise that.

-Last thing im going to mention is online chat, now your aware that xbox comes free with a microphone so almost everybody can speak/talk/annoy you. PS3 doesn't come with it so im going to be honest it means alot of people don't have one. Also the party chat is alot differnt, being that you can't play games and have to be sitting on there version of the dashboard to do so. It's really not very social.

I think if PS3 sorted out there damn loading + download issues then they would have a really solid system.

Other thing i'd like to mention is that, yes ps3 has solid exclusives (Little big planet, mgs4, resistance, killzone, uncharted etc) but then so does xbox (Gears, Halo, fable, mass effect etc) after that your left with the multi-consoles and you'll find that the xbox versions of multi-console games are much better/stronger.

Although, you could argue that some games nowadays such as Vanquish are being developed for Playstation 3 and then just ported over to Xbox.

Either way its up to you, and no matter who you ask its all a matter of perference because the only facts are that the ps3 has the more powerful system. Although blu-ray is good i don't see it replacing DVD any time soon & remember the original xbox vs Playstation 2? xbox had the more powerful system but lost big time to the playstation 2.

In summary, make up your mind on what you want, but don't be dazzled by in-game footage or reviews. They rarely include what i touched on above.

Personally i went back to xbox because of my friends being there & the whole game installing thing.

Just going to point out Mass Effect 2 is on the PS3, and 3 will be too.
@Glastonbury; That may be another selling point to you, but since you said you don't like most of the 360 games, it probably won't be.

Yes it does seem to need system updates quite alot...but it doesn't seem to take as long as Gareth implied lol. Though you can make a sandwhich.

But yes PS3 does have more variety in its Library compared to 360. As far as online goes, aside from the "PSN Blackout of 2011" I've never had any problems with it. And not just because it's free, heh.

My recommended games: inFamous and if you like [futuristic] racers, wipEout HD (I'd wanted it before it was free, getting it free was just a bonus ^_^). Imagine a cross between F-Zero and Mario Kart.
