PS3 is worth? Good games?

Postby Aleff Correa » Thu Dec 02, 2010 3:52 pm

Since the PSOne I was a fan of Sony consoles. I had a PS1, and I still have a PS2. Now I'm considering buying a PS3 160GB (Slimline), but every single friend that I have possess an XBox 360. And I really wanted to play together with friends, but the main reason I want a PS3 is the Piracy question here in Brazil. As you may be aware, the piracy in my country surpasses every other country in the world. It's almost impossible to find a original PS1, PS2 and XBox 360 disc on small gaming shops, they have mostly pirated games (Keywords: Gaming Shop, Pirated), and I can't say I'm not involved in it (The only original disc I've ever had was a Japanese copy of Street Fighter Zero for the PSX), but now that I can buy games with my own money, I want to get away from piracy once and for all. As you may have noticed, my friends have only pirated games for the XBox :( .
So, I'm determined to buy a PS3. What do you think?

I'm also planning to buy a PS3 next year, and five 'classic' games together. What do you recommend if I choose the PS3 path? I was planning to buy these ones:

-Metal Gear Solid 4
-MAG
-Far Cry 2
-Grand Theft Auto IV
-Little Big Planet

Please comment! :)

PS3 has free online, nuff said.

You should definitely get at least a few of these games:

Vanquish
Tekken 6
Call of Duty: Black Ops
God of War III
Red Dead Redemption
Assassins Creed II
LittleBigPlanet
Gran Turismo 5
Eyepet
NBA 2K11
Killzone 2
Somewhere out there, is a planet with no war, no hunger, no poverty, no killing, and no evil.
It also has no oxygen

I didn't though about inFamous, I think I'll buy that one. However I've never liked Killzone on the PS2, so I don't know if I'll buy it or not. Maybe renting to see if it is worth?

Vanquish is a futuristic shooter? I'm considering to rent it later, too. I never liked futuristic shooters.
Tekken 6 is a good fighting game. To the list! CoD Black Ops is pretty good too, but what about the online play? Anyway, I'm buying it.
God of War: You will think I'm crazy, but for some reason I don't like it.
Red Dead Redemption: A sure buy! Same for LittleBigPlanet and GT5.
Eyepet: Maybe I'll buy it if I find the move bundle with it.
NBA 2K11: I don't know, the only kind of sports game I've ever enjoyed was soccer and boxing ones. Worth renting.

So, the new list is:

Tekken 6
Call of Duty BlackOps
Red Dead Redemption
LittleBigPlanet
inFamous
Gran Turismo 5
Eyepet (bundled)
MGS4
MAG
GTA IV
Far Cry 2

I won't buy it all together at the same time, but this will be my guide. Any others?

PS3 also has Blu Ray as standard so before you drop too much money on a stand alone blu ray, get it free with PS3 and rent a few and see if its really worth it to you. I have set a HD tv side by side with a CRT TV and a DVD player and a Blu Ray ...there really is not too much difference, even when you switch the dvd and blu ray from HD to regular. Most of the hype in Blu Ray is the size it can store and how much it can store. For example .. the DVD Box set of LOTR comes with 4 DVDs .. part 1 ... part 2 ... appendix 1 .. appendix 2 ... as Blu Ray can fit all of that on one disk and they claim more scratch resistant. The trick is .. the bottom of the disk where the laser reads is irrelevant to scratching ... easy buff out .. the label side of your disk is where the information is stored so scratch the label to see through it and fubar .. no more disk. I dont own a PS3 anymore, needed some cash so sold it. But I still went back and played the Resident Evil 1 and 2 on it with surround sound hooked up in the dark .. real creepy hearing a zombie walk and moan behind you!

Wait a minute, are you saying that you can play PSOne in PS3 with enhanced surround sound :o ? Awesome! I might check for some PSOne originals to buy too .

Mafia II: Glitch plagued; Dead Rising 2: Cool game, I can't believe I forgot that one; FIFA 11: I was thinking about PES 2011(they have a famous brazilian commentarist and narrator); Demon's Souls: I don't like games with "demon" in the title, I can tolerate violent games, but not games with that theme; ModNation Racers: I heard that it looks like Mario Kart :P I'll check that out, since I can play with my little sister too; Split/Second: Is this a racing game? It looks cool; Batman: Very acclaimed, might check it out too; Uncharted 2: PS3xclusive for the win lol; BioShock: Not sure how it plays, worth renting. Resistance 1/2: Another cool shooter; Spider-Man: It's a game based on a movie, I'll consider though; Pac-Man: If it offers variety, I'll buy it for sure!

Well, I didn't experience a single glitch while playing Mafia 2, BioShock is worth much more than a rent and Spider-Man: WoS isn't based on a movie. But...it's your choice, dude.

Guess I shouldn't trust reviews then, if you say that Mafia is fine. If it is your recommendation, then I'll look forward to buy it too! Well, I said that I would rent Bioshock because I don't know anything about that game yet. If it is really good, it's another buy!

Well, thanks for all the help for choosing those games, I'm not that good at choosing them. But tell me any other interesting game, I'm dying for a strategy one. BTW, how about MAG? Is it good or not?

Strategy game, huh? You could try "Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution", "Greed Corp" and "Tom Clancy's EndWar".

Mag is okay, not great.
There is sometimes epic lag and there are also spawn timers.

If civilization is as good as it is on PC, then it's another buy. The other two are great games, too.

I guess my connection won't keep up with the game, then :(

Playstation is one word according to the Sony company derived from two words merged together AND 1 number so you all are right in a way :lol:

Aleff you must get the ps3!!!!!

Its way more reliable and its free to play online as well as you can store games/ movies/music on your harddrive from usb portable devices or data disks. You also can literally buy harddrives for it that are made by different manufactures. Its well worth it. Very good games.

Little Big Planet (cute game)

Metal gear solid 4

The orange Box

GTA 4

Uhm, the only thing mentioned in that list Xbox doesn't do is free Live.(You pay for the quality ;))
I think that they need to co-exsist, and I don't want to start a war.
They also have differences in game selection.

You should buy this console. I want it SO badly myself! It would be an upgrade from playing with bad quality in my little bedroom tv to playing in HD on the big flatscreen in the living room :D seriously the quality difference is quite big. Plus once you've played all the good ps2 games there isnt coming any more. Everything is ps3 now :shock: oh i'll never get to finish the god of war triology :( *wipes a tear*

That's actually an acronym! :D They're syllables to spell out the original text: PlayStation 3, which foils your context. Be careful next time!

I didn't know GameStop is Piracy.

Poor xbox, no one wants him :lol:
So I'm definitely buying the PS3, just because everyone in this post says so. If so many people recommend it, the quality of the PS3 is unquestionable. Thanks everyone, and I see you in PSN :D
