PS3 without Immersion lacks Rumble and PS3 without Rumble lacks Immersion. Finally Sony did the right thing

I like playing video games and and if a console breaks you buy a new one. I have never had a sony product break on me and I have a launch ps1 ps2 and a 80 gig ps3 all of which work perfectly but if one breaks id just replace it.

If you have games you will miss playing, and are looking forward to games coming out, then the answer is obvious (if you can afford it).

Considering I have about 80 retail games plus all the new awesome stuff coming out this year, I would replace my ps3 if it broke

There's a white limited edition PS3 out right now and and next month they will release a Red PS3 which comes with the new god of war game and all the old god of war games.

True, but you forgot a couple things,

GTAV
Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2
Tomb Raider reboot (screw the haters it looks good)
Beyond: Two Souls
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Tales of Xillia

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few as well, but that's off the top of my head

I was going more along the lines of recent or upcoming exclusives. The 3rd Party stuff definitely looks amazing as well tho, so let me add to our existing list


Bioshock: Infinite
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Metro: Last Light
Crysis 3

i would wait till the 20th thats when the ps4 is suppose to debut. when it does price cuts wont be far behind.

if the ps4 is backwards compatible and comes out during the summer late august or so i would wait and get the new unit.

but if you cant wait without till then rent one from a company like rentacenter, etc cost 40-50 bucks a month
