Yes, especially now the PS3 has been hacked.
#3
not if u already got a BD Player thats all a PS3 is any good for! ( I own a PS3 Wii & 360 before someone attacks me)
banned#4
even though I have an xbox?

is it worth buying for just those games?

Those are 4 amazing games. I would say yes.

Sell your xbox and get the cheapest model then buy the PS3.

id buy the £229 ps3 slim 120 if i can find it in stock.

Yeah it's not the best example of PS3 games. Heavy Rain is very much an acquired taste, what I saw of it it looked tedious as hell. MGS4 is 70% videos but the gameplay is good when you get handed control. I hated LBP but then I'm in the minority there.

Go for it VB1, get it now before any updates are made making the recent hack redundant.

far better exclusives on the ps3 now so sell the bd and 360 :)

Hey you guys...

If you don't like my list of games, could you suggest some other PS3 exclusives?
#11
i would go for it, as said before Heavy rain is an acquired taste - personally i LOVED it and was addicted. Uncharted 1 and 2 are also both amazing!

MISSP27 - thanks.. what is Uncharted about. I know its awesome, but not immediately obvious what it is.

also good call on wipeout - i want a proper mental racer, and there is only one with the history really!

Looks good but I'm not bothered about move/kinect/wii IN THE SLIGHTEST :)

I'm looking at the £229 deal in sainsburys if they have stock for the 120gb without game.

just out of interest... i think the 250 is £264... is that a good deal or not?
#18
No if the deal I linked above pays out Quidco/ TCB and Game reward points because the OP of that thread says the possible net price could be £267.10, which is only a few quid more than the 250GB price of £264. So basically, you'd be paying £3.10 for the Move bundle and an extra 70GB on the HDD.

unless your desperate for it tonight why not buy one on here / ebay 2nd hand and see if you like it. once you open the box on a new one it'll depreciate instantly.

Buy it, the economy needs your dosh.

the easiest way to describe it is it's a bit like tomb raider (jumping, hanging off cliffs, shooting ppl etc) only a thousand times better :)
i love my ps3, you should definately get one :) if you haven't got sky plus get playtv as well, it's really handy

VB1, if you do find the money to buy one, add me.

Infamous
Heavy Rain
First three are pretty cheap too.

Depends how much weight you give to video games as a narrative art form like movies. If you're not that interested in plot then play any order you want.

I'm very busy hiding from the rain right now. This allows me to be here making demands.

If you buy me a present I will give you something so sought after that people are queueing round the block for it as we speak.

your so called prizes were all in your mind .. and your normally bleating about something or other .. go and buy the kit and stop asking your parents if you should have a ps3 .. BGB

I would definitely say play uncharted 1 first, it gives a better experience imo. Also there are some funny moments in Uncharted 1 :p.

EDIT: Add me when you get one, my tag is Met-Cast just let me know its from HUKD.

Oh yeah I heard iPads are still in short supply ;) :P

I've had everything you've got to offer anyway. It's a curly wurly or nothing.

Right I'm off to buy.

its either £229 from Sainsburys for 120gb, or £284 from argos for 250gb with 2 games (uncharted/uncharted 2 or gt5)

I'll check on my phone before I hand over the readies, so post quick if you have a view on which is better.
#40
It depends on if you'll use the extra space. For £55 extra it's nothing considering you get two games. So i'd say go with the argos deal.
