I picked up a few system/console-exclusive games for both systems at Gamestop (like 8 games for a total of $30) not too long ago, and now I'm wondering if I should bother with how many Steam games I still have yet to play, as well as the fact that it'll probably be months at this point before I end up getting one (got caught up in a little debt). Forget about any of the new consoles.

I mean, I'm looking at most of the exclusives I'd be interested in, and with the exception of games like Red Dead Redemption, I could probably beat them in a day and never go back to them.

And then I both love games like Forza, but hate how I'll never reasonably be able to 100% them because I didn't get the pre-order bonus, or participate in events in the past, or something stupid like that.

I also have a 3DS (mostly bought for my girlfriend) that I never touch, mostly because I'd rather be playing Steam games at home and because I don't have more than a few minutes of time to sit down and play when out of the house (meaning I resort to some decent Android games).

Thoughts?

Buying a PS3 wouldn't a be a bad choice. It's relatively cheap and there are a ton of japanese games available for it if that's your taste. Otherwise I would say neither is worth it.
Russian is my first language, so yes there may be a spelling error or two.

Find them in a pawn shop and talk their prices down.

Yeah, I guess I'll really have to evaluate whether there's enough exclusives for me. As it stands, I could probably buy a PS3 at Gamestop, play the singleplayer campaigns for the exclusives I'm interested in, and return it before the 14-day or whatever return policy they have.

Most of the ones I've seen are in sketchy areas, and I used to have a 360 a while ago that went RRoD...I'm not willing to buy anything but new or refurbished with at least a year's warranty when it comes to consoles. Unless I'm just going to return it right away like mentioned above.

If you like J-RPG, you may consider to get PS3.
Notable titles are Valkyria Chronicles, Ni No Kuni, and Tales Series.

Getting a Playstation is always a wise investment for the exclusives alone. There's a lot of titles that come out for the PS that don't see the light of day on the PC. THe same can't necessarily be said about the xbox. There's only a very select couple of games on the xbox that aren't available on the PC. I use my PC for multiplats and my PS3 for exclusives and plan on doing the same with the PS4.

I have a Wii, Wii U, and PC. I recently decided that the PS3 is at a low enough price and has enough exclusives to warrant getting.

I've bought over 15 games that I would only be able to play on the PS3 (or just the 360 and PS3) so far and plan to get another 10 or so.

PS3 is good for its exclusives, and it's not too bad as a blu ray player. Wii (and Wii u I guess) are good for legally playing a lot of older games. 360 has very little to offer a PC gamer.
