It's not worth right now. Need to wait for some good exclusives.


Indeed. Also give it time to let other suckers/beta testers figure out what the actual failure rates are. Thank god the XBox360 didn't seem to teach the buying public any lessons.


That's a very good point. Those original PS3 phat models all died by now due to the poor design or the way it was put together. Even my PS3 slim wasn't safe as it's power supply died and I had to replace it with a better version that was compatible (apparently Sony changed the one my PS3 slim was using in later models).


I just want to say I have a fat ps3 and its running like a champ, but I didn't buy it at launch. I got it about 6 months later.

I snatched up the PS4 and a game for my little cousin and got a chance to try it out for the past few days and its really impressive performance wise. Killzone is boring as fly sex but the graphics look amazing. It looks like it would be Pc game on ultra settings. I don't have online but the graphics on BF4 looks almost as good as it does on the Desktop.
I'm very impressed at how well the console performs at such a low price point.

I might get my own playstation later on if enough people on my xbox live friends list switches over. I always wanted to try little big planet anyways.

Looking at buying one or two of three things for Christmas. A R9 290, a PTR 91, and a Xbox one. Unfortunately, the xbox one is the same price as a R9 290x so I am placing it a the bottom. And the local gun store dropped their price on the PTR 91 so it WAY towards the top of the list.

My Fat PS3 is running fine too. I know tons of people on their second, third, even fourth XBox360 though. And go for the PTR91, got an HK 91 in the gun safe and it's one of my favourite semi autos. I'd go as far as to say I prefer it over the FALs I've handled and it's almost above my Garand... almost.

Why on earth would I feel threatened by a video game platform? I'm laughing because it clearly does NOT look like a PC game on ultra.

I guess its true. it is impossible to give consoles credit when its due on this particular without having to deal with unnecessary back lash from random social rejects that populate the "master race".
If you put it side by side to games like hitman, or arkham city it does.
Go ahead and make snarky comments and cling to your silly opinion if you want to but that doesn't change the fact that killzone pushes with some amazing visuals and for a temporarily moment the gap between high end PCs and consoles has been narrowed.
