    Hi all

    Never owned a Playstation before (couldn't stand either the first or the PS2) but for some reason I'm very tempted by the PS3... I already have a 360 and haven't touched that since I got the magnificent Wii... but there's something about it!

    Anyone ordered it, and regretted it?

    In all honesty I find that a little odd ;)

    I gave in today and ordered a 60GB Jap one from edtremaine (who is apparently now banned on avforums). I want it mainly as a blu-ray player to be honest but some of the games are very appealing (motostorm, F1, GTHD). Not bothered if games become region locked eventually (which I doubt) as a) they'll probably be a hack anyway and b) if there isn't I'll sell it on and get a US one. Should hopefully be here late next week, hopefully with no customs charges! Can't wait

    Yep!

    The PS2 just seemed so boring. The PS3 though does actually sound promising. I dunno, I never got caught up in the hype of the other playstations, but this one is grabbing my attention.

    I'm fortunate enough to have a Wii and Xbox 360 as well as the PS3. The PS3 is the machine I've been playing the most. The Xbox 360 is a great console, the Wii is something radical and different. I don't regret buying any of them, however it's the upcoming PS3 titles I'm looking forward to the most - the machine seems to have the potential for some fantastic games. Each to his own of course - no doubt others will see it differently ;-)

    Iam against sony the idea repulses me and do not think the console is worth it and you are paying for a blu-ray that you may not want.

    So I purchased one on the 24th of december :) It was the worst best decision i have ever made :) :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Well, it's getting even more tempting ... ! Can't imagine I'd play more than the Wii ( I love that thing... mind you the bias I have to towards Nintendo is incredible ;) )

    Nice to know I'm not the only one considering "caving in"..... nice to know I won't be the first to do so either! Hmm. I really should take a break from AVForums lol

    As a games console it looks good, however as a Blu-ray player it sucks, as it has no IR receiver - what's that all about :suicide: ???

    To be honest I'm not so fussed about having it as a BD player as I have a standalone BD player, so the fact it has it is a nice little bonus :smashin:

    You know, I decided to do all my Christmas shopping in November so I wouldn't be skint in January like usual... but Dave, because of you, I fear that's going to happen anyway! ;)

    I don't understand how you can find the ps2 "boring", yet are excited by the ps3. Of all the exclusive games slated for the ps3, most like VF, MGS, DMC are sequels to games on the ps2. The ps3 basically has the ps2's game catalogue with improved graphics, a hard drive and a blu-ray player.

    Still, I suppose I'm bolting the stable door a bit, aren't I?

    :D

    If you do buy a ps3, you can always play the ps2 back catalogue on it. I heartily recommend God Of War, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

    IMHO opinion you're short changing the PS3 and to a certain extent the PS2 as well. If i'm correct you actually don't own a PS3 so probably aren't in a position to make a valid judgement on it. Not only that the PS3 hasn't been out for long so regardless of whether you own one or not we all have to wait and see whether the PS3 lives up to it's potential or not. Sure there are a number of sequels with better graphics coming out but there are also a number of new IP's as well. At the end of the day personally I'm more then happy to have replaced my PS2 with a PS3. Plus I can still play my PS2 games on my PS3.

    You're totally missing the point. Stuart said he found the ps2 boring, to which my response is that the ps3 games catalogue is basically an update to the ps2's catalogue. Just as the xbox 360 has many next gen versions of xbox games - Halo 3, PGR 3, Forza 2 etc., etc. Just exactly how was I "short changing2 the ps3 in that comment?
    For your information, I have every intention of purchasing a ps3 for the same reasons I gave to Stuart, in other words I want to play the next-gen sequels to ps2 games.
    I'm happy that you enjoy your ps3. Good for you.

    I think it's you who is missing the point. My point is that it's not all just about next gen sequels. There are also going to be a lot of new next gen IP's like Motorstorm, Lair, Heavenly Sword etc. My point is there is a valid reason to buy a PS3. Also there are many quality games on the PS2 like God Of War, ICO, Shadow Of The Colossus, all the various RPG's especially the Square Enix ones etc. to make it a viable console choice. In other words whilst there is a lot of rubbish on the PS2 there are also quite a few gems. This applies to any console really.

    This could go on for a long time. :rolleyes:

    I haven't said ANYTHING about buying or not buying a ps3, please re-read my post. Yes, I KNOW about games like Motorstorm, RFOM. Heavenly Sword looks incredible. MGS4 looks incredible.
    Stuart said he thought the ps2 was boring, I said it wasn't and that the ps3 will have more of the same. What part of that is so hard to understand?


    "My point is there is a valid reason to buy a PS3" - You don't say. I KNOW!!!!!!!!!

    I'm off to the states in May so I'll wait till then to make up my mind and see what games are out by then. I've never owned a console as I generally not found enough stuff that I've wanted and they been plenty on my PC instead. But, to have a blu-ray player and game console I might bite the bullet and buy one.
