Why did you buy a Playstation 3?

Exclusives: basically God of War III and The Last

I'm glad I picked it up because of the blu-ray player and higher-end graphics (they're nice, as long as the gameplay's solid). It's the media center in our house now for Netflix and such. I also like playing PS1 games on it, along with the occasional collection updated for PS3 (e.g. God of War collections, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus, Sly Cooper).

Metal Gear Solid 4 and God of War 3, and that was before they were even out, knowing MGS4 was an exclusive and GoW3 was inevitable made me choose the PS3 over the 360.

Though LittleBigPlanet justified my choice all on it's own. There have been plenty of other exclusives that have made it a worthwhile choice.
Mmmmm, Apple Pai.

I bought it for several reasons. Before PS3 all I had was a Wii, Gamecube, and a PS1 so I was really missing out on a lot of good Third-Party games (GTA, Fallout 3, and Call of Duty were the ones I wanted most of all.). I also really liked the exclusives like Uncharted 2 and LittleBigPlanet.
Thanks, L4DHunter!

I bought mine SOLELY for MGS4. So I guess that counts as "exclusives".

Because I already had an Xbox 360, a gaming quality PC, and my girlfriend came with a Wii.

Sonic Generations, Persona 4 Arena, GTA IV and V, and the eventual apparently PS3-exclusive Persona 5. Basically I wanted a PS3 or 360, but the PS3 was cheaper and i wouldnt have to pay for XBL.
Can't wait for: Persona 5, the Wii U and everything that comes with its glory
Currently playing: Persona 4 Arena, Madden 13, Pokemon White 2

Final Fantasy XIII

I actually got mine for Versus. But that quickly stopped mattering, there were and still are a lot of great games I enjoy on PS3.
