I keep seeing PS3's on display at all types of electronic stores and am constantly unimpressed.

To be honest, I really do want to eventually buy a PS3 but everything I have seen just looks underpar. I'm not a fanboi of any type console. Hell I don't even own any consoles. The PS3 was the one that I was going to buy... that is until it actually released. I've played 4 games for PS3 and all didn't really have that good of graphics(granted, I was playing on displays at the store so that could have been a big issue) and they really were not that fun to play.


So back to my question. What games for PS3 are OUT or will be out within the next 4 months that MIGHT lean me to buy one?

Resistence, MotorStorm, Virtua Fighter 5, F1, Armored Core 4 (looks good, haven't given it a shot yet)

Other then Resistence which I already own, I plan to get those 4 that I listed. There are more coming out that I plan to buy but those are also available on the X360, picked out the exclusive* titles.

I would wait for Heavenly Sword... Thats my God of War for the PS3! :D



*Exclusive titles are only F1 and MotorStorm, Others are timed exclusive or altered versions (AC4).

Save your money and only get one when mentioned games are actually out and get decent/good reviews.

I own one and I like it a lot but I am mainly using it as a Blu-Ray player. If you don't plan on doing that wait till the games you want come out for the system before you buy. I am pretty sure had Sony removed the BR drive I wouldn't own a PS3 till June/July when KillZone2, Metal Gear and Tekken are suppose to come out.

Blu-Ray player would be 90% of why I buy the system if I do.

Before the Xbox/HD-DVD fanbois invade the thread. I have nothing against HD-DVD. If PS3 came with an HD-DVD, that would be just as good to me. I know Xbox360 has an add on HD-DVD player. I don't care. I don't like Xbox 360. The controller is too funky and the Xbox360 exclusive titles just don't appeal to me as much as PS3 exclusives.

Anyway, only thing holding me back from a PS3 now is on how the horizon looks on pricecuts and if any decent games will actually release. I'm getting pretty anxious on getting some High definition movies, so i guess we'll see. :o

If you want my opinion I say try and wait it out till at least this summer. But then again Casino Royale hits Blu-ray in March so.....:rolleyes:

as long as you acknowledge your thoughts on HD-DVD and the 360 controller as your opinion and not fact, I don't think there is a problem.

Otherwise I think a few people, including myself would have to go dual shock ranting on you. ;)

hah, of course.

I'll be the first to say I'd rather PS3 came with HD-DVD. It would mean cheaper games and movies.

About the Xbox360 controller.... I just don't like it. :o

Eh, not really. Most 360 games are 60 bucks and those are on regular DVD. Movies are about the same prices as well.

well thats partly due to the fact they have had no competition. When PS3 is finally able to spit out some decent games, Xbox 360 games will lower in price while expensive PS3 games will not really be able too.

Either way, it doesn't really matter much to me. In the end I know I will never own an Xbox360 so they are of no concern. :)

Yeah, I dealt with that recently. Although I bought Fight Night 3 for the X360 when it was released and paid like $60 for it, it's now only $30 for the X360 but the PS3 version is $60. Heh, of course, I bought the PS3 version just recently anyway since I wanted to try the first person mode so I guess I have a lot tied up in Fight Night 3.

Anyway, while I'm waiting for some games to be released for the PS3, I'm enjoying the blu-ray capability quite a bit. After you start, it's hard to stop. :)

Amazes me, I see deep rooted fanboi crap right there. heh!

You come on here asking about what PS3 games are coming and then say you prefer the exclusives on this platform?

I'm curious, what exclusives are there for the PS3 worth getting?

I really want to know, because i've got my eyes on one and the Blu-Ray alone don't cut the mustard.

I knew it wouldn't be too long before the X360 trolls come and derail this thread. He stated his own opinion, why do you have to argue it?

Hell, How can you consider him a fanboy if he doesn't currently own one and is trying to find a reason to own one? Wouldn't a fanboy just run out and buy it no questions asked?

Maybe he wants to play PS2 games on it currently and watch Blu-Ray while he waits for the AAA PS3 titles? Sony has some of the best 1st lineups in the recent years and you know they will find their way to the PS3.

Well, if you dont like some games becuase, well, you just dont, than:

GT5, MGS4, Heavenly Sword, Tekken, Killzone 2 - Da Myth, God of War 3 (I dunno if they announced it or not, but common, is there a doubt?), and others I forgot to mention,

then you have nothing to lose.
And saying you like the exclusives of one console makes you a fanboi of games, not a console... shiiishhhh

I have had my PS3 for a little over a week now (I have had my 360 for almost a year). The only game I am playing so far on it is Resistance and the Motorstorm and GTHD demos. I will say that the single player campaign in Resistance is as much fun as any of the games I enjoy on the 360. I am not worried about having to wait for top notch games to come out as I am getting a lot of mileage playing BD movies on my 1080p tv/monitor. It is a nice feeling knowing I can pick up either HD-DVD or BD movies and not worry about the format.

If someone asks me if they should get a PS3 right now I say yes if they are going to watch BD movies on it. If not, I would say wait a little while for more games to come out.

I'd have to agree with that. I really like my ps3, but I don't think there are any must have titles just yet. If you have one, I was having quite a bit of fun playing NFS: Carbon, but you can probably beat it fairly quickly.

Yea, I knew it wouldn't take too long. :o

Anyway, the exclusives I am looking to play are Metal Gear Solid and Gran Turismo 5. Those are really the only exclusives I'm looking forward to. Top that off with some Blu-Ray movies and its *almost* a reason to buy a PS3. I'm looking for just one more reason for me to bite. :)

Even if I do get the PS3, I will still play PC games 99% of the time. So my gaming experience isn't *that* important. If a statement was to be released tomorrow that Metal Gear Solid will release on PC, I would go out to the store, buy an HD-DVD player and completely forget about a PS3. Thats unlikely to happen, so as of now I am thinking about getting a PS3.

Fanboi comments don't really bug me. If you want to sort through my posts and help convince me why "ZOMG XBXO360 IZ SO MUCH BTTER! BLOO RAY SUX!!" then have a ball. I don't care.

UT3 on PS3....just in case G80 doesn't hold up when it comes out.;)

Hah, i highly doubt a video card with less than half the power of a G80(RSX) will run UT3 better.

Either way, I seriously doubt I'll ever buy a FPS game on a console when its out on PC... even if the graphics are better.

Well part of the problem with the lack of PS3 games for me is that some of the cross-platform games I already own or have played on my 360 before I got my PS3, such as CoD3.

I don't expect it to look as good as the PC version but I don't expect it to look bad either.

Just for the record UT3 on PS3 is supposed to have mouse/keyboard support.:)

aye, same here. I bet it will look great for a console... just like Gears of War. :D

^^ Tyger, on the contrary to what everyone says about how Blu-Ray sucks and it looks like upscaled DVD and nothing more, that is false.

I own both HDDVD and PS3 BluRay Players and I have about 10 DVDS for each and I can say that BluRay quality is far superior compared to standard DVD, though it may not look as good as some HDDVD titles I have to admit that, BluRay is still definately worth utilizing if you are looking into a PS3 system. I'm no fanboi, Ive been gaming on both systems and viewing both HDDVD and BluRay titles and happy with both, just wished HDDVD came out with a bigger, better title selection as what BluRay has :)
