My husband is a gaming addict. He is now debating if he should pay the 600 bucks for a new PS3. He says he needs a new t.v. to even play the system on. Anyone on mylot have the new PS3, what are your views on it??

Don't let him. Have him get an X-box 360 instead. PS3 is gonna suck and it won't be worth the money, especially if you gotta buy a new tv to play it on.

The Ps3 sucks... the xbox 360 is a lot better. The ps3 costs waaay too much for what it is. it's pretty bad.

Did you look into the 360, or did you get the PS3? If you don't want to spend the money on something you don't know about, go to a game store and buy a refurbished X-Box. That way you could check out the system, check out some games (like Halo), then if you like it, you can invest in a 360.

i'm almost afraid to buy new systems anymore.it seems like everytime you get one,here comes the "new improved version" the next year. at least they made it retroactive tho so you can still play PS2 games.

yeah, why fix something if its not broken right?? but the new ones are awesome!, the graphics and the game play alone, do you play video games?...i guess it sorta depends on the person, but i love em...not that good at it, and I watch alot...but they have changed a lot from the games we use to play when we were kids...

PS3 is worth the investment, if you ask me. Currently it's still not available in my country but its coming soon, and I can almost guarantee many people will grab it. I'm thinking of getting one too, but only after the price drops. I think PS3 might be the best console out there, beating even xbox 360 graphically. Although the Wii is phenomenal in introducing a new kind of control, PS3 has a huge fan base, especially in Japan, Sony's stronghold. Therefore, you can be sure that it is of utmost quality and game developers will definitely try to come up with even better games to cater to the huge fan base. I think PS3 will remain hot for at least 5 to 6 years before it starts losing its heat when Sony launches another new console, but I think that's highly unlikely, since PS3 signifies the highest level of perfection in the console industry currently. The core microchip boasts to have teraflop speed. You know what that means? Only supercomputer chips can render teraflop speed. This means PS3 will be able to render jaw-dropping graphics that could blow anyone away. Of course there had been many discontent about its launch, but being a staunch supporter of PS3, I really recommend gamers to consider it.

10lbs!! thats awesome!!...prehaps I should look into this Nintendo system instead of the PS3, although the hubby loves the PS system... We had the dance mats on the go here for a while, but the fad quickly wore off...loved guitar hero tho..awesome game..
