Dumb to get a ps3 this late in its life?

For $200 I'd say go for it and then wait for a slim more reliable PS4. We all know how launch systems are. YLOD plagued many of the fat PS3s later in life and people wound up with $600 paper weights.

This is a good recommendation actually....

The waiting on the PS4 thing at least. First Line Sony Products always suck.
The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list

Thanks for the advice guys!

I'm just worried ill buy it now, grab a game with a great multiplayer community and then the ps4 drops and the next three sequels will be on a new console. Lol

It's smarter to buy a system towards the later part of its life cycle than at the beginning. The PS3 is cheap plus there are plenty of games to choose from unlike 5 years ago. I didn't get my PS3 until the price drop to $300. The key thing to do is let all the early adopters be the guinea pigs while you reap the reward. I'm probably going to do the same with the PS4.

We haven't heard the PS3's swan song. The PS4 wasn't announced.

I doubt we'll be seeing the PS4 for another 2 years. You want to wait that long? Also, getting a console at launch is rarely a good idea anyway.

you can't count of PS4 having backward compatibility.

the only console system that is "dumb" to get right now is the wii, just for skyward sword.
