Do I need a PS3?

In the next few months I am seriously thinking about buying a PS3. But I need convincing to.

I currently have a Xbox 360, PS2 and SNES.

I only got a PS2 for Final Fantasy and its the only games I play on it. The SNES is for nostalgia.

I also have a stand alone Blu ray player.

So sell me the PS3 over everything I already got

Do I need it?

Re: Do I need a PS3?

Is that NEED or WANT?

I'd think it comes down to what games you want to play..

If you have the XBox then why not a PS3 as well if you have the cash?

Re: Do I need a PS3?

Need? No. Nobody needs any games console. The very idea that anybody might 'need' such a thing is most likely one of the reasons for all the looting last week.

But if you want one, and can afford it, why not give the cash to Oxfam, carry on playing with what you have, and bask in the warm glow of making someone else's life a bit better?

Where's the sense in that?

Just give Oxfam your old clothes and buy the PS3

The trouble with the PS3 is its not backwards compataible and thats was a big weakness when it came to buying a console for a member of the family who had plenty of PS1 and PS2 games which he could not play on a PS3.

Re: Do I need a PS3?

If you only play Final Fantasy only 13 Versus and 14 (although that is also on PC) are exclusive to PS3, there's not too much incentive for you to buy one really.

Need? No. Want? Depends on what you play, and what uses you'd have for it.


What kind of games do you like?

Personally, I think it's worth having a PS3 just for the Uncharted games... Easily some of the best of this generation.

Re: Do I need a PS3?

As several people have written you don't need any game console but if you like playing games then there are some good titles that are PS3 exclusive like Uncharted series and Heavy Rain for example. Apart from the PS3 exclusives it seems you already have everything PS3 can offer... Except maybe a Blu-ray 3D player if you current standalone player is not capable of playing 3D movies.

Also a 3D tv might go a long way, to the OP I had the 360 before and now have the PS3 and they are both the same the only real upside to PS3 is the fact you don't have to pay for online gaming.

Good point...free online gaming is a big plus

For some reason, I prefer the xbox controller (not sure why, maybe i like big things )

So really depends on what you want out of it.

eg I rarely use Blue-ray dvds (almost nil).

You won't NEED a PS3. But you might want to get it in addition to your Xbox and Snes just for leisure.
