Getting a PS3
So I've gone through my 2nd Xbox and I'm tired of it always breaking and paying for live. So me and my brothers decided that we want to get a PS3. So I have a couple questions...

Is it worth the money?

Is it reliable?

What are some good games?

Sony just announced an even thinner version of the ps3 set to come out for the holidays. I don't know if that means they'll drop the price on old consoles, but it might be something to consider.

Yeah, the more expensive of the newer ones that's coming out is I believe 500 gigs, and I think I'm gonna get that as a second one for me. I'm still running my first one, that I got when it first came out. It was a 60 gig with backward compatibility. I've had issues with running out of space, and the only thing I really put on there is game data, and maybe 15 downloadable games.

Sony to Support PS3 Until at Least 2015
The company's VP of hardware marketing has promised a number of undisclosed first-party games over the next three years.

Sony's VP of hardware marketing John Koller has revealed the company will continue to support the PS3 until at least 2015 with a range of first-party content. "A lot of great content is coming," Koller suggested, continuing, "And over the next 2-3 years, the PS3 has got an incredible lineup."

In an interview with Gamespot, Koller also said "We're going to continue supporting the PS3 for the next few years. Absolutely. And we're going to continue supporting it not only that long, but as long as there is a development spigot that's running hot. And I can tell you right now, the development spigot for PS3 is very hot. A lot of great games coming."

Quite what these games may be remains a mystery, especially extending so far into the future, but it's interesting to ponder what this means in relation to when the PS4 will be released. It seems pretty likely that there's going to be some overlap between the PS3 and PS4 in terms of support, the question is for just how long?

Let the speculation begin!
