Changing consoles?

#1ArchemicionPosted 4/2/2013 12:37:19 PM
Hello, I'm from the XBOX forum ^^ Anyway, undoubtedly, Dark Souls on the XBOX there are thousands of modders, gankers, dicks, and stupid people in general...

I have a chance of buyng the PS3 (Maybe even the Ps4 :P) in mid-july... I'm here to ask you if this game, and the Playstation in general is worth it... I'm aware that on the PS3 there are more Japanese and serious Hackers, as well as the recent Mega Mule, so I'm really unsure here...

Please, I don't want to create a war between consoles, not even flaming, I just want to know if it's worth at all to buy the PS3 AND Dark Souls, and even possibly Demon Souls as well :P

If you're considering buying a PS3 for Dark Souls, then it's worth it to buy one strictly for Demon's Souls.

Dunno if that made sense...

Coming from someone who just bought one last month, I think it was definitely worth it. It seems like there are more people in some areas (maybe its just me) and the only thing thats really different from Xbox is the latency (parry windows and such). And I'd say definitely get demons souls if you can.

It's not a large problem. There's definitely people who complain, however there's also people who complain about it on the PS3, which has far fewer. The point is not that they don't exist, but that the community still works and has not ended. Which is the argument I see far too often.

I freely admit cheating = bad. I will not concede cheating = game is ruined.

Onto the main point: I wouldn't say it's ever worth a console for just a game or two. However, if you plan to buy other PS games (Metal Gear, LBP, whatever) then it definitely is. If all that interests you PS3 wise is Souls, I'd say not.

Well, PS3 online is free. So, that's a plus :)

Other than that, we have cookies, and a relatively active Dark Souls online player base.

I don't thinkthose things ruin the entire game... It just bothers me a little that I have to be aware that every fight has a chance of the host popping a Divine Blessing or TWoP... At least, Estus will cease to exist in DK2 :D

And yes, of course, if I do gety my hands on the PS3, I will certainly buy all the games I was frustated was exclusive to the console, such as GoW and the KH Recollection :P

I just wanted to check if this was the best buy, or if I should buy something else, like another game... Thank you guys!

Yeah, the free online is sure tempting... And I accept the free cookie!

Also, off-topic, And the PS4? I know really nothing about it, but like the others, will it play other PS games and DLCs? I'm interested... :D

PS4 will not be backwards compatible at all, even with downloaded items. However apparently it will be able to stream games lives from older consoles, so this may or may not replicate some form of BC if you can turn in your games for streaming access. Which seems unlikely, but maybe. :/

to piggyback on this, i just bought a new ps3 that came with a year's subscription to ps+. i think the other ps3 bundles all come with at least a month though.
