Here's something different: Should I invest in a PS3 or a PS4

[ Edited ]

I wanted some peoples opinions on this.

 

I've been thinking of getting a Playstaton and I was wondering if i should get the 4 or the 3 sometime in the future. I've always wanted to play the great PS3 games such as MGS4, Uncharted, The Last Of Us, etc. But I also am just dying to play things like Battlefeild 4 and Killzone: Shadow Fall on the upcoming PS4. I've never been able to get console until around (and I say around because the PS4 comes out in late November) now, mostly due to the fact that I always used to travel a lot, and now that I have some down time, I've decided that a console would be a fun time passer.

 

But what should I choose?!

 

Thanks for all the replys so far! I appreciate it.

 

But money is always a factor. So if I have enough for a PS3 but not a PS4 around launch time, should I get the 3 or save for the 4?

 

P.S. Don't say Xbox. Never say Xbox. Screw Xbox...

 

Thanks! Smiley Very Happy

If you dont feel like getting a PS4 on launch and are worried about failures and such, id recommend you get a PS3 super slim instead.

I was thinking that too. How long would you think the PS3 be relevant after the release of the 4 though?

@TheMagram1002 Probably 6-12 months at least. But still, there are some pretty **bleep** good games that are on that console...

Seeing as their are some AAA PS3 games still coming in 2014, and a few developers (like ubisoft, activision and EA), saying they will continue to support the console until demand is gone, dont expect it to go anywhere.

The PS3 is still going to be supported for a good while (years, not months). There are more great games coming, be they new titles or HD remastered. OP, since you mentioned MGS4; Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection (or edition) just released and it contains almost all MGS titles.

I think the PS3 will be supported for many years to come, the PS2 was supported for over 12 years.

the reason ppl will buy the XB1, is because they'll want to play COD:G on a next gen system and the ps4 will be out of stock -_-. Not related to to topic..

 

 

Get a ps4 ^^



Got my Vita for $50. Woot.
