What should I do? (A matter of a broken PS3)

#1treehugger15Posted 2/12/2013 4:39:56 PM
So allow me to set the scene:

My PS3 broke (YLOD).

Should I...

a.) Send it to gophermods for the $80 fix (even though, at most, it would last about another year).

b.) Buy a new PS3 (I hear they're pretty cheap now), transfer my data, but say bye bye to my backwards compatibility.

c.) Just wait for the PS4 and let my 360 hold me over.

d.) Other mysterious option I have not yet thought of.

Would appreciate some input!

B has generally been the most popular option. But with the next gen so close, it's getting hard to justify buying a PS3 now. One of the other options might make more sense.

I would wait for the February 20th announcement. If we're lucky, they'll give us an idea of how soon PS4 is releasing, and whether or not it will have any BC with PS2 or PS3. Much easier to make a decision then.

New PS3, used PS2 imo.

You could wait for PS4 but you may not get BC in that, anyway, and then you'd be behind on any games you wanted to play (unless you mostly play multiplats in which case just use your 360.)

besties. ^_^

Yeah, I totally forgot about Feb. 20. I guess that will be a determining factor.

Didn't even think of buying a used PS2. I bet I could find one for $10 :)
