Should I Buy a Ps3 or wait for the Ps4?

8 replies 263 views Edited Jul 30, 2013

                 So, right now all I've got is a Ps2 Slim I got when they first came out, and I do play it, A LOT. But I finally want to upgrade, but I'm having trouble deciding what to buy, the Ps3 or the Ps4? Normally I'd be all for the Ps4 BUT there would be some problems, for one I have never even TOUCHED a Ps3 and therefore have not played a single Ps3 game, and it seems like some of the best Ps3 games, like GTA V and The Last of Us, are just now coming out and the fact that there are Ps3 games planned for 2014 way after the Ps4 is released. So I would miss out on some awesome games because Sony decided to not make the Ps4 backwards compatible.

                 Plus, I would have to wait a while to upgrade because sony has never failed to release a slim version of their newest console   (save for the Ps1), so I would want to wait for that to come out. Not to mention the extra $100 I'd have to shell out for the Ps4, AND the fact that with the Ps4 online play will not be free, which is stupid.

 

SO, should I...

A) Go ahead and purchase a Ps3 (by the way, I have my eye on the GTA V bundle)

B) Wait for the Ps4

C) Wait even longer for the Ps4 Slim

 

Could you give me some reasons for your answer, so I know I'm going to make a smart purchase.

Sounds like it would be a good buy, but yeah, Boston pretty far away from me.

Wait for the ps4//option B.
Yes they will be developing games for the ps3 for a bit, but for how long after 2014? You don't HAVE to pay just to play online, you could play single player (which it seems as if you have been for some time now). However, having said that, the $5 a month you pay to play online isn't just because, it's to uphold the new experience and also nets you free games each month.
Yes you may miss out on some ps3 games for now, but I guarantee you hey will be on the ps4 cloud soon enough to be downloaded and enjoyed.
Or think of it this way, getting a ps3 and not a ps4 would entail you missing out on awesome games like The Order and Knack.

Ps4 option B

Get a PS3 before moving on to PS4, there are too many PS exclusives you just can't miss.

Get the PS4 and wait for the PS3 to drop in price before you get one. With next gen systems on the horizon, the PS3 will be dropping in price soon.
