I already have a 360 so im not looking for games that are on the same system. All I want the ps3 for is the exclusives. Would it be worth it to get one.

I got lucky and got a refurbished 80gb(later upgraded to 120) backwards compatible PS3, back in 2010. So, yes, if you want one, go for it. God Of War series, Uncharted series, Dragon's Crown, Last of US, Shadow of the Collossus/Ico Collection, Zone of the Enders Collection, Infamous Collection/DLC, and all of those classic PS1/2 games on PSN. Go ahead if you want one while it's cheap, and the online is free for some games.

Depends on what you like. I'm a massive fanboy of Demon's Souls and the Yakuza series (which has five exclusive PS3 games) and I can't imagine a PS3 costs more than $100-150 used these days so I'd say it's worth it for someone with my tastes. Metal Gear Solid 4 was also in many ways the end to that series and a great game in my opinion.

Apart from those I think the truly stand-out exclusives have been ported to other systems. There are still good-to-great ones but nothing worth buying a console over. In my personal opinion.

It also depends on if you have a PS4 since that is where most PS3 exclusives were ported to.

Yes, I'd say that Demon's Souls alone is worth buying a ps3, though I have this policy that you can't justify a purchase of gaming system based in one game alone. But then you have God of War entire saga, Yakuza games, Kingdom Hearts, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank and many others AWESOME exclusives. Get it.

It's honestly the only reason I own one. I don't consider multiplatform games for the ps3 when I get game on the 360 and play with the vastly superior 360 controller (imo). It has great exclusives. Got nearly 60-70 ps3 games and alost all are exclusives.

Metal Gear Solid 4 alone is reason enough to me.

As mentioned, the end of the franchise and a superb piece of video game.
I think every game should have full voice acting and plenty of cutscenes. I can't see any other ways to properly tell a story.

I would say yes...

PS3's are cheap now...I would go for the Slim/Super Slim versions though...The Phat ones are prone to YLOD.

Yes if you like jrpg such as tale of xillia series or some exclusives that are not remastered. It's not expensive.

Some exclusives such as uncharted series or last of us are remastered on PS4 with better graphic and frame rate.

Sorry for my bad english.
