I bought one for Metal Gear Solid 4, Blu-Ray, free online and because my Xbox 360 would not stop red-ringing. Plus, Sony exclusive games are better than Microsoft exclusive games, with the exception maybe of Halo.

...i should note i avoided PSN and any updates for about 3 years, after the hack. sounded like those early upadtes could kill a 60gig. but it looks like the current updates are OK.
also want to mention my love of the PS controllers. the best in the west, for sure. all other suck IMO.


Um, the hack was only 18 months ago... So you didn't log onto PSN until June 2014?

Although I agree, DualShock is the best controller unless you are a gorilla.

VC - Not a fan of JRPG'S, but I would like to try this.
R&C, Team Ico, J&D - great games (especially SOTC), but played them all on PS2
Star Ocean/FF - Not interested
Trine - got this off Plus, cool game :)

I originally wanted it so I could play Gradius VI, and Final Fantasy XIII.

Final Fantasy XIII came in 3 years after the machine was released. It was a chopped up version because SE was losing money, and wanted to increase its audience and decided to go multi-platform at the very last second. I had faith that they could keep the game like the days of old, but they still sacrificed the depth of the series for marketability.

Gradius VI was cancelled, and the Schmup genre along with it.

Chances of me buying another game console, Playstation or Xbox, is pretty slim. This generation pretty much killed it for me. I had fun with a few games, Assassin's Creed, and Uncharted, but it doesn't feel as fun anymore.

The release landscape is full of half releases, that cost $60 and subsequent DLC packs which cost another $60 to fill out the rest of the experience. To those who wait a year a Game of the Year edition gets released, which includes all DLC packs and the full game for $40.

The business is no longer gamer friendly, and really exploits the instant gratification crowd for the extra cash.
