Is a PS3 Still Worth Buying This 2015?
« on: June 05, 2015, 01:04:18 AM »
Hi, folks.

I am a PC gamer looking to buy my first ever console. I love playing fighting games and racing games most of the time, anything competitive. I wanted to get the XBox One just for Killer Instinct, however getting a console just for one game doesn't seem worth it.

For the PS3, there are a slew of fighting games available for them, like Tekken 6, UMVC3, MK9, MKX, most Street Fighter games, etc.

I was planning to get a PS3 since I haven't owned a console my entire life, and that I missed a lot of games like UMVC3 (which I've been dying to play for YEARS). It's a sad thing though that I can only afford to get the console in the end of its lifespan.

It did make me sad that I had to miss an entire generation of consoles so I can buy things for cheap.

However with the impending release of Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V, I'm also bent on the decision to move on to the next generation of consoles. However I can't afford to get two or three more consoles since I have more important grown-up stuff to deal with (bills, insurance, car, etc). (However I know that SFV will be released for PC as well!)

Hopefully you can help me decide.

Thank you, and more power!

I would like to bump this thread.

I am also contemplating my PS3 purchase, kahit yung 2ndhand na slim version lang.

Unlike OP though, I'm not really a gamer, but I don't do just social games either. Sakto lang. Pero ang kaso, gusto ko sulit yung pera ko, ayoko maging obsolete lang bigla yung hardware na bibilhin ko.

Yes! Why? Kasi pakikinabangan mo at masasatisfy yun gaming GAS mo. Kung games lang, punta ka ng Greenhills. May isang store na nagba-buy and sell ng DVD games like for PS3.

Pero kung makakapag-antay pa na kaunti yang gaming GAS mo, save up ka pa para PS4 na i-score-rin mo!

di ba nakakagas sir yung end na ng lifespan ng console tapos saka ka lang kukuha tapos all the new games mapapa-GAS ka lang lalo di mo naman malalaro  :-(

I see it differently. Since you're purchasing the PS3 at end of its era, andyan na lahat ng possible games na pwedeng laruin. Pwede mo umpisahan laruin yun mga series from the start like GTA, COD MW, Black Ops, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, etc. Yun mga bagong laro, pang PS4/XBOX One na yun. Next level na kumbaga.

Believe me, PS3 is quite an experience. Hindi yan kagaya ng PS4 na sort of "unexplored territory" pa. All possible games reviews and what not are all over the net already.

Ang huling alam ko, used PS3s go around P6k-P8k. And go with the non-jailbreak unit. Mura na lang naman ang mga used PS3 games.

May fb group akong nasalihan for ps3 ads. Marami may preferred sa CECH (start ng serial), siguro hindi ata sirain. Mas mahal ang jailbreak na ps3, but if  youre planning on purchasing stuff from PSN its better na hindi naka-jailbreak. However again, may mods (daw) na kayang magonline kahit nakajailbreak.

I've had mine for 4 years now. 2nd gen PS3 yun sa akin. Used to be jailbreak, playing games through an emulator tapos nag-update ako ng firmware kaya legit na ulit.

Kapag nakabili ka na ng PS3, make it habit to play for only 3 consecutive hours. If you want to play more, pahinga ng 1 hour then resume your gaming. That way, tatagal buhay ng lens ng PS3 mo.

HI folks! I agree with sir boxedking! kakabili ko lang ng ps3 ko sa greenhills a month ago.. all i can say is sobrang sulit, sarap mag laro, i purchased a jailbroken ps3 para mas mura ang games 50 petot lang ang padownload.. yun nga lang di ka makakapag laro online and di mo mauupdate yung games like NBA roster.. but playing diablo 3, call of duty, batman, the last of us sobrang sarap.. you don't even need to get up and change the disc since everythins is downloaded in my ps3. so to answer yung thread ni TS, it's worth every penny. goodluck nalang sa dami ng games, mahirap mag decide kung san ka mag focus first..  :-D :-D
