I think a guy on another forum put it best.

There have to be as many games out that I want as the cost of the console.

When I picked up my $99 GC I got about $100 in games with it (Metroid Prime 1 ($20) & 2 ($50), Wind Waker ($20), Mario Sunshine ($20).

When I picked up my $150 PS2, I got God of War, Katamari Damacy, Devil May Cry, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy X and FFX-2, among many, many others since then.

With the Wii, well it came with Sports, so that kind of skews it, but I also picked up Zelda, Raving Rabbids, Trauma Center and Red Steel. Only Red Steel have I sort of felt wasn't worth it.

The 360 was a gift, so that sort of skews it too. To be honest I'm not sure if I would have bought one on my own by now, but I may have. Gears of War, Oblivion, Dead Rising, Project Gotham Racing 3 are approaching the threshold. I might pick up Viva Pinata, and Lost Planet is due soon. Still, it'll take about 8 games to break the threshold of the games I want exceeding the cost of the system. But like I said, it was a gift.

The PS3...oh man. $600 = about 10 games at $60 apiece. To be honest, the only one that looks even remotely good at the moment is Resistance. Fight Night 3 looks good too, but I'd get that on the 360 if I wanted it, but I have a moral problem buying any EA games (I just don't feel right doing it). MGS4 is on the list, but it will take a lot more than that. A whole lot more. To be honest, I think I'd only buy the thing when the cost comes down to around $250-$300, and there are 5 or 6 must have exclusive games on it.

Where is the "I have cancer and need the PS3 to cure it" option?

I want one as it is now but just haven't been able to find one yet. The price doesn't matter that much to me, I just want a next-gen console that is fairly quiet.

Same as any console. I need must have games to justify the cost. In the case of the PS3, that's an awfully big cost to overcome.

sony would have to pay me about $600 a month to make me own a ps3, if it was a one time payment, right after receiving the money i would throw it out the window
