I already own a high end PC but is getting a PS3 a good idea?

Ive had this high end pc which i play mostly games through steam. I never owned a ps3 and Ive noticed some awesome games that are coming out or have been released. Is a PC + PS3 a good combination over a 360 + PC?

If you want the exclusive games, go for it.

Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

I'm a PS3 fan, so my opinion is skewed, but I would say yes.

PS3 + PC is the way to go.

I would say don't limit yourself just to the PC. If there's a good amount of exclusive games on the consoles, pick it up.

PC + PS3, as I said in the other thread, is the best combination for gaming all around.

If you're a hardcore Halo, Gears or Forza fan, get the 360, but really, Gears, Forza, and Halo are the only three games that the 360 gets that the PC doesn't get, aside from Kinect games.

PS3 though, gets lots of exclusives that the PC doesn't get.

Yeah, there are definitely some great PS3 games that make the console worth owning. I can't say the same for the 360. It has pretty much collected dust since I bought it.

Demon's Souls, Valkyria Chronicles (Truly underrated), Uncharted, Resistance, and others make the console worth owning, but those are my favorites.

Heavy Rain
MGS4
GT5
Red Dead Redemption (not on PC at all yet and no plans to it seems)
Sly cooper 4
Uncharted 1-3
The Last of Us
Beyond
Infamous 1 and 2
Killzone
R&C games
Resistance games


All of these games listed asides red dead redemption are PS3 only titles. Also the PS3 is a good media player/server. You can even stream video from your PC to PS3 in HD on your wi-fi network. Also the hard drive is very easy to upgrade when/if you need to.

A PC and PS3 are all you need to play the best games, unless you love Halo for some reason. 3DS and PSP if you want to include portables.

If you like the exclusives that the ps3 has, go for it. Though I will tell you my ps3 is getting pretty good at collecting dust these days.
