Afternoon fellow gamers...

To anyone who has posted with me before in S.W, You'll know that I've always been a bit critical of the PS3 as a game system...(not stupid fanboy hate but genuine critisms) all in all I just didnt think it was worth the money. But low and behold I worked through christmas and saved some money without even realising it. One thing lead to another and before I knew it My GF and I were walking out of EB with a new Playstation, MGS4 and LBP...

And I gotta say... I was wrong and you guys for the most part were right. the PS3 is a great system at this point in its life. Both MGS4 and LBP are insanely fantastic, and Im now looking forward to picking up all the games you've been bragging about. God of war, Killzone and R2 all look just as fun as Ninja gaiden, Gears and maybe even Halo to me now.In any case its good to have the other half of the console gaming market open to me.

so yeah...your tireless devotion to the PS3, your links to awesome new videos and the recent reveiws have finally got the better of this critic, I would'nt have bothered if you guys wernt so adamant about the system...

so thank you for showing me that good console gaming doesnt start and end at the 360. Cause Im really enjoying the new experiance.

Great dude. I'm happy for you.

But you're the winner in this, not us other PS3 owners. I just hope you keep enjoying video games, on the PS3, the 360, the Wii or whatever pleases you.

Awesome, congratulations!

Enjoy the system and the games. Glad to hear more people enjoying a wider array of games rather than sticking to one system, stubbornly ignoring all the fun they could be having.

Thats exactly what I thought! For a while the 360 was more then enough for me, but then I began to realise that now matter how many games I'd play on the system, I'd only be enjoying half the market that was catored to me. I figured if Ive got the money I might aswell use it, and stop ****ing about the price.

Congratulations! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :D I think the same applies to PS3 gamers as well. To truly get the most out of this generation, you really can't go without both the PS3 and the 360. If I had the money, I'd get a 360 too as I feel like I'm missing out on some pretty sweet stuff. Open-mindedness is key to enjoying oneself.

Congrats, Hope you enjoy it.

I'd also like to direct you towards a few other games which would probably keep you having fun for a while. Uncharted (phenomenal game), Warhawk is awesome online fun and you can go online with 4 ppl, if your an RPG fan at all I suggest Valkyria Chronicles, there also the Resistance franchise, and you should probably (atleast) rent Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and Heavenly Sword, both games have an awesome single player campaign.

I can guarantee you'll never have trouble finding an online match for WAW on the ps3 ... so you'll never experience this lack of players you speak of. The online is fine, and yes I've played both live and psn ... and at the end of the day ... when I'm just playing a game, I see no difference, but I do hear a difference (more 13yo whiners vs. less) but thats about it.

The PS3 isn't as bad as the mainstream says it is. All systems have their good things and bad. PS3 is good because It can play most media formats and it makes it easy to transfer things over to the system. You can use The PS3 controller as a gamepad on your PC or use a PC gamepad on the PS3.

I am a new PS3 owner as well.

But I come from PC land.

However I'm loving it too.

there's so many options and settings, which is good because I like tweaking and tinkering with stuff :P

Its cool how consoles are becoming more like PCs .

Thats your problem you need to get more games. And I don't know what your talking aobut COD5 waw sold almost 2 mil on ps3 and cod4 sold just about 4mil... Resistance is over a mil now and so is lbp... There are always people online, what are you talking about.. I am tired of people complaining about ps3 not having games when they only buy 2...come on go buy some games already! There are tons! It's usually the xbots who buy it just for mgs4 and lbp and nothing else...horrible! Some of you must have bad internet connections, as I have never had any lag on psn..besides socom the first week it came out and that was fixed (do to mass amount of people on servers) r2 is silky smooth all the time, so is lbp and motorstorm2, soul calibur 4 etc... Buy Valkeria Chronicles and Eternal Sonata if you are in to jrpgs! It's a great console, best console since ps1 imo.. I have 34 blue-ray disc games and 12 psn games...got ps3 in april for gta4 and mgs4( too bad i didn't know about the 80gb bc mgs bundle)

swazidoughman
I too came from pc land back in April the psp was the only console I owned since ps1...then i got my ps3...and love it. I still like pc gaming, but exclusives are not like they used to be thanks to M$ stealing devs and devs like epic who abandoned the people who made them what they are...so i had to go back to the company who made my early 20's so fun...Sony and the playstation....(I am 30 btw...) The PS3 is the closest thing to pc gaming with a whole slew of great exclusives and multi-plat games, plus it has lots and lots of features and tweaking options...using OPEN STANDARDS like pc...! Hell you can make it a pc with installing supported linux right out of the box.
