Found 27th Feb 2008
Basically i have bought a PS3 off ebay,
It was a spur of the moment purchase because it was cheap.
Now im kind of regretting it.
I already have a 360, i'm not sure whether to stick the PS3 it back on ebay or just stick with it

If you play it and you intend to watch lots of hd blu-ray films then keep it, otherwise its not much use.

keep it for the blue ray player and final fantasy 13

Sell it, And apologise to yourself for being a traitor, plus blu-ray movies are a waste of money, buy sky HD with the money you are saving.

that's the best decision in all [non-fanboy] honesty you never need 2 consoles. You should even be able to make a profit on it :thumbsup:

edit: is it just me, or since getting achievements on 360; does playing anything else just seem pointless?

Sell the 360 before it breaks:thumbsup:

I now exactly what you mean,

I think the PS3 is bringing out accomplishments for games

Tbh, achievements are pointless.

If you sell, I'm interested.

I didn't think this would be the case, but since i've had my 360 the use of Gamertags and Achievements has been a revelation.

I'd still keep the PS3 as it's supposed to be one of the best blu-ray players around, I even heard a rumour that it may be able to play games but thats probably hearsay. :whistling:

You should have kept it. This year there are undoubtedly more great games coming out on PS3 plus Home is coming out and the whole online service is free. Even if you aren't interested in any PS3 exclusives (which I doubt) you can still use it as a Blu-ray player.

I'd say keep the PS3 and get rid of the 360, purely on what I've read about Sony customer service if it goes wrong. Can't remember which forum it was, but you ring customer services and they arrange for a replacement until to be delivered to you the next day. Better than Microsoft I reckon. I was undecided about which one to get and went for the PS3 on the basis that I've heard of so many 360's dying

Although, if there aren't any games out for the PS3 that you like and you're not that bothered about Blu-ray, then there's not really a reason to keep it

I just got sopcast to stream on my PS3. Free footy for me!

Im not in a rush to use a blu-ray my HDTV is only 26" and normal DVDs look okay at the moment. Only exclusives i would be interested in is MGS & Haze, (don't like GT)

How did you do that? Did you have to install anything? Are you running Linux on your PS3?

Well i do have linux on the ps3, but I'm running this straight from the standard XMB mediaserver bit.
I found this thread forums.afterdawn.com/thr…890

I went for the Orb option - seems to run smoother.

There must be more exclusives that you're looking forward to.

Those probably aren't even all the exclusives, but there are a good few great games there that cater for many different genres. Home should be great, online is free and you can use the PS3 to store and use a lot of your music/videos/pictures. The Xbox is good as well so if you just want to keep that then it's probably a good decision for you, but there's a lot of unmissable games coming out on the PS3! :thumbsup:

Im more than happy with my new £25 gamecube at the mo. Any game I want delivered free from CEX for under a fiver more or less!
Did enjoy my PS3 and will def get another one as soon as there's a decent £300 with two games offer about.

Yeah this is true about Sony. They bring a replacement PS3 right to your door and they take your old one away.
There are many great games coming out; Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5 (already got the JP version, and its fantastic!) Haze, Killzone 2, Final Fantasy, Resistance 2, Time Crisis 4 etc. There is also an update coming soon with an In-game XMB. PlayTV is coming out very soon aswell
Not to mention the amazing games already out such as Unreal Tournament 3, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, Resistance, Warhawk, Motorstorm etc.

sell me your ps3!!!

put ubuntu linux on it and you have the most inexspensive media player that also plays ps3/2 games plus bluray wifi bluetooth and divx the world will ever know,say thanks to yourself for the purchase.


p.s. uncharted beats crysis into a cocked hat

p.p.s with upscaling on everything.

heres a senario a guy walks up to you in the pub and says

"hey i have a pc baseunit thats small factor,sylish enough to fit under the telly,plays cod4 on max settings,up scales dvd,has built in wifi and bluetooth ,hdmi plus 4 usb ports and sd slots,and as a side bonus plays all ps3 and ps2 games.oh and also has a built in bluray player and wireless controller et al"

how does 217 pounds grab you?

And you say you aint a fanboy. All you ever post is negative ps3 comments or rave about your xbox!

Its very sad you know :whistling:

ctuk obviously doesn't own a ps3, has never tried one, is missing out on a lot and hates them for absolutely no reason (xbox fanboy)

Stick with the PS3 and wait for all the exclusives, HOME, PlayTV, In-game XMB - There's so much coming out for the PS3 this year

I've never once raved about my 360. and also click view previous posts by ctuk you'll see I only ever make helpful comments!

Nah, it should arrive tomorrow
im going to try and sell it asap

If i feel the need to buy a ps3 again,im sure they wil lbe cheaper by the time i want one

You might find the price stays the same until Sony can manufacturer them for less.

i saw a PS3 slim article in a magazine whilst at gatwick airport. said we could be looking at one around christmas this year.

heres another senario

a guy walks up to you in a pub and says

"how do you fancy a beige gaming console that sounds like concord taking of when you insert a disc,has a power supply big enough to keep a firedoor open,that will most likely break if you sneeze within a 50 metre radius AND have to pay to go online,plus i bung in a defunct hd player and 20 whole gb's of hdd"

how does 317 pounds grab you?

The whole pub scenario is flawed, the chances of anyone capable of defending a gaming console on an internet forum going outside are remote. Unless the said "console warrior" accidentally stumbled out of 'GAME' into the pub.
