I have a lot of catching up to do with the PlayStation 3 and instead of replacing my old PlayStation 3, I may just get a PlayStation Vita and wait for the PlayStation 4 instead; but I am not entirely sure what to do at this point.
There are a decent amount of PlayStation 3 games coming out in 2013, that I want to be able to play; but their are also alot of games that I missed out on, games that have been out for a while or a long time and the online is probably inactive for those games at this point or near inactivity.
I feel I missed out on so much and never really took advantage of the PlayStation 3 when I had it much earlier on, so I feel that I should probably just go with the PlayStation Vita and possibly the PlayStation 4 so I can start fresh, but only time will tell what I ultimately decide.
Its never too late.... and if rumours of non B/C on the PS4..... then you're going to wish you had a PS3 so you can play all the good games you've missed out on
It could be just propaganda, but everything I read says that no developer has even tapped the PS3 to it's fullest extent. If that's true, why release a new system before the current system is even used to it's fullest? That seems kind of stupid IMO.
Even if that IS just propaganda, and this is the best the PS3 can do, I'm completely fine with the PS3 lasting at least a few more years. I myself don't need a new system. If anything, I think Sony should offer an alternative PS Eye in HD. They can keep the current one on the market for those who don't care, just offer a High Def alternative for those who like higher quality and just make sure no developer relies on the HD version (so older Eyes will always work as well as they can).
Other than that though, I'm completely fine with this lifespan lasting longer. I got a mountain of games to play as it is, and I for one am looking forward to seeing what Sony and other devs might do with the Vita/PS3/Move combo, assuming that anyone really tries a full integration of them all. And if not, oh well.
Agreed with original post - why am I not playing GTA V right now on my PS4 this summer? Everything is released in Fall which means half the games are ignored because no one can play that many at once.
