    Ok I have 1000.00 to spend and my 18th b-day is on the 22nd. Should I get a ps3? I have a Wii, 360, my pc, and a brand new Macbook Pro. So a PS3 would complete me lol.
    I want one but do they ever have problems or anything? Is there alot of people online? How is Playstation Home or whatever its called? My 360 RROD once like a year ago.

    Let me know!

    Got a car fund? If you already have one spring for the ps3. Built in blu ray player anyway and has decent games.

    Go for a car. The PS3 is a hit or miss at this point in time. All I see is people saying they're not going to publish for it, but if you want it and are assured you're going to enjoy it, go for it. Although, imo, Sony is a stellar publisher, and the PS2 library is hard to beat.

    Well go for the 360 if you want games but the ps3 is nice to but all in all pc :grin: i own the ps3 xbox 360 and wii

    Yes I have a car.
    I have a 2004 Mustang. =D (I love it!)
    I'm covered but thanks for the suggestion.

    buy a 360. the ps3's free online isn't worth the douchebags that play it. you'll always have a lot more fun online with the 360.

    people actually aren't dicks too much, and you can rage as a group instead of using in-game chat. makes communications a lot easier.

    plus, it looks sexier and is easier to replace than the ps3. and it can't be made into a grill as far as i know

    overall here is my personal taste:

    Metal Gear Solid: GoTP
    LittleBig Planet


    Gears of War
    DLC (w00t)
    CoD: MW2
    Afro Samurai
    New MGS title exclusive to Xbox....hope it doesn't suck.

    just a few of my select taste.

    Mod your 360 for $40 (Chances are you don't need the LiteOn tool so the $40 fee is waved). Xbox-scene.com is your best bet.

    As to if you should buy a PS3 or not, the only plus to buying one was a launch day as they have some hardware extension (I forget the name at the moment) but it had an exploit in it which allowed it to be used as an ISO loader for PS2 games. Besides that, I don't see any reason to buy a PS3 now. (The hardware extension that was there during launch has now been removed and swapped out for emulation software for those of you wondering.)

    LOL guys I already have a 360.
    I have every system but a 360.
    Handhelds and all lol.

    A few friends of mine have them. I played it a few times they are fun but I could also use the money for DJ gear but my b-day is very soon so it doesn't really matter.

    Go for the DJ gear if you are really into music :razz:

    i have no issues with my PS3 and i love it, mostly used for the blueRay and the HDD. there are a few good games for it. but i suggest you look for a used 60 gig, its the only one fully backwards compatible all the way back to the PS1. and it has all the bells and whistles unlike the new and only 80 gigs.

    i've got one, there pretty good. but you may find if your friends dont have one you wont play it too much

    theres plenty of games out for it in different genres

    the blu ray come in handy if you dont have a stand alone one

    also another plus is you dont have to buy many accessories most are built in

    so yeah in end its upto you :razz:

    nice car ... =[ jealous :lol:

    yeah, i noticed that too. i didn't want to say anything about it though!

    Im all for the PS3 i have one and love it.
    PS3 pluses: Best BluRay player available still, some fun games and ones to come (Little Big Planet alone imo is worth the price for the gaming aspect),
    PS3 cons: If you want to download a demo good fuckin luck Metal gear solid took me 2 weeks to dl. The internet and online multiplayer in general is a joke on ps3 but thats what my 360 is for

    all in all if you have a 360, wii, pc, car your next logical place to go is ps3 if you have a bluray already go ahead and skip the PS3

    Get a ps3. Dont play with the silly kiddies with their silly boxes

    Hah you silly goose. Having to replace youre xbox and turning it into a grill. I laugh at you mwahaha laugh laugh.

    2 weeks o_o u must have been doing something wrong or have a slow connection I think when u play games ur dl slows down or stops.

    also btw ps3 power cords are the same as the one on your comp so u dont have to worry about that fat thing you needa lug around with an xbox. also the cord to charge the controller is that usb cable thats fits in many other things like cameras etc. I can even charge my blackberry with my ps3 using the same cord :grin:. Also u dont needa buy those Microsoft only stuff because the ps3 has support for all sorts of things like Logitech Racing wheels :grin:. Ps3 also has a card reader so u can easily save and view your porn :grin: You can plug in ur usb headsets you can connect usb keyboards and mice. you can buy a 1.5tb laptop HD and swap it in your ps3 to store your porn. Unlike the xbox where you have to pay the same amount for 1/10th the memory.

    somebody clarify something for me. I have an 80gig one and my ps1 games still work. oh well I have the psp for the ps1 games

    and dont forget to dl ragdoll kung fu :grin:
