Question Reasons to get a PS3?

I recently came across a great deal of money and I'm looking to spend it on something cool. I do want to get a PS3, but that's basically just because I don't have one. I want some reasons, but the exclusive games just didn't seem that special. The price was a pretty big reason against me getting it, but that's no longer an issue.

So to all those PS3 fanboys here, sway me over. What's good about the PS3 that other consoles don't have?

Because I have one.

The PS3 has a good number of exclusives like LBP, the aforementioned MGS4, and other stuff. Their online service is free compared to XBL, unless you opt to purchase the Playstation Plus service. The controller is also better than the 360's imo (mainly because I play fighters a lot, but that's just an opinion). Graphics are a subjective point, but I find them to be a bit better on PS3 than 360 for some games. That's how I decided to get a PS3 in a nutshell.

Honestly I wound up selling my PS3 because I didn't play it much. Only game I actually miss in MGS4.

Edit: @ Wario: 360 is also capable of 3D. Me and my friends have played Black Ops Zombies, Sonic Generations, and Batman all on 360 in 3D.

Another one of these threads huh. I'd list all the exclusives, but that'd take forever. Saying it has like 60 more than the 360 should do. Also going to point out that Microsoft will most likely be announcing just Kinect games and Halo 4 at E3 this year. So just Kinect games then. Whereas the PS3 is looking to have a good, 3 or 4 new exclusives. Including Battle Royale & LittleBigPlanet Karting, and probably inFamous 3. I only mentioned 360 in case you were considering that too. But yeah; exclusives, blu-ray, free online. Nice purchase.

Pretty much what other people said.

Free online
Better controller
Better online store
Better games
Better graphics than 360(anybody who says otherwise hasn't played games like Uncharted 3)
Plays bluray movies, even in 3D if you have a 3D TV
PS3 games are bluray discs so it can fit a lot more content.
Compared to the 360? It has more than 3 exclusive series and has way more than just 1 exclusive announced in the past year.

Oh yeah and I suggest getting PS+ since its $10 cheaper than XBL and actually worth it. Just two days ago members got a Castlevania game, Awesomenauts, Trine 2 and pixeljunk 4am beta all for free. That's already like $30 of the $50 PS+ costs yearly. PS+ also gives lots of discounts for games that are not free.

Free online; I know free does not neccessarily mean better, but there I rarely have issues with online. Plus PSN online seems much more lax with more mature gamers, far as I can tell.

And I personally think PS3 has better exclusives than the 360.

Blu-Ray and 3D helps.

This.

You get the occasional a-hole who likes to be stupid and make stupid comments and the odd 10 year old now and then but when you get in to lobbys ( I am talking about COD here btw its all I really play online ps3) people seem to be respectful and when you play you seem to be able to play without ''YOU F******************** GAY *********************** ASS ***** ''
Being shouted at you. Not saying there arent people like that on Xbox but it seems more common on PS3 for people to be mature and respectful.


Also from a Cod point of view if you like that. Xbox Cod 4 Cod 5 and Mw2 are hacked to shreds where on PS3 there fine most of the time

To be fair I think there's a lot of immature gamers on all consoles. On both PS3 & 360 people swear and talk sh*t when they lose, leave early so the match doesn't count, among other stuff.
