Latley we have all been watching the news on the PS3 how it's being used for medical purposes for the technology and how theres only about 30 console instock or how on ebay there $7,000. Well is the ps3 really worth all that hassle just to goet 1 console that could fry on you as soon has you set it up....?

    Similar trends have been observed with nearly all other console releases. And if someone manages to sell a PS3 online for 7,000$ then I think he's in luck, personally I never buy consoles or hardware at the release day as 90% of all the first generation releases have some kind of fault in them.

    Like yellowjello said, wait a little bit. The launch titles are pretty bland right now, and the hardware isn't perfect.

    Tip: Just keep your PC and upgrade it when desperately needed. I'm doing that and sticking with a Nintendo Wii. Good times...

    If your looking for something new or innovation, pick up a Wii. If you're looking for more casual and "normal" gaming, Xbox 360. The titles out for PS3 are pretty shitty, and the hardware can be faulty. Wait a year, like others have said before.

    I think it's totally not worth the money for at least a year. Even then I still say my favorite is the 360.

    The games coming out next for the PS3 looks great. But I'm not gonna spend almost $700 for a few games.

    No. There are like 2 launch games worth getting, and one of them is a multiplatform game. I might get it when MGS4 comes out, but even then I don't think the system is worth it for one game. Plus Sony treats their customers like crap compared to the other two (The other two aren't perfect, but better)

    Well, if there's a PS3 game that tickles your fancy then go for it. Don't buy anything that cost more than 700+, it ain't worth it and don't get the Gundam game, it sucks. Like YJ said wait for it's library to catch up. If you need a next gen console right now, get a 360 or better yet a Wii and buy PS3 next year (probably the price might go down to 400 by that time).

    Couldn'tve said it better.

    And Resistance will most likely be ported to PC, or Xbox360, sometime in the near future.

    The graphics are good, but they aren't as good as Sony made them out to be, it actually looks alot like Half-Life 2 to me, on medium to high settings with HDR on

    Oh here we go with the stereotypes and name calling, that's what starts flame wars.

    Yeah. Sony announced a few days ago that they will be having major shortages (as if there wasn't a big enough one already) because they are donating them to medical research because of the power it can muster up.

    In my opinion and being a total playstation person, by that meaning ive never played the old xbox, think that 600 or 700 bones is way to much for a system and think that the xbox ( i hate to say it) is better, due to better launch titles, better hardware from what i hear and a hell of alot better price range.

    that's my account, Please let me know if it sends, that means I still got a account.

    The ps3 is worth the intial $600. A blu-ray player alone cost ~$1,000
