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

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
God of War 1,2 and 3
Twisted Metal
Free online play


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.

One advantage of the Xbox 360 is that it generally gets the best versions of multi-console games. I think the PS3 has better exclusives though. PC+PS3 is what I would go with.

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.

Lost Odyssey, Fable 2, Tales of Vesperia, XBLA games like Ms. Splosion Man?
either one is fine, but I barely use my ps3 over my 360

Don't think I'd agree there either. Almost every multi-platform game I've seen, the PS3 screenshots are much better than the 360.

You'd be in the minority then, it's general consensus that PS3 versions of multiplat games look and run worse. Having owned both an Xbox and a PS3, I'd say this is true for the most part too. PS3 games tend to have more noticeable aliasing and worse textures, along with dropping more frames.

Comes down to what games you want honestly since your pc can do everything else the consoles can do so the extra features are kind pointless. They both have their fair share of good exlusives. Unfortunatly if you plan on playing online ms requires you to pay for that.

PS3 + Wii, for me.

Cutting edge technology partnered with the most most mass market console of this generation. What more do you need?
