Okay, I stupidly sold my ps3 about 3 months ago forgetting that this game was comming out. After seeing the awesome game play and reviews I really want to play Last of US.  I only have a 360 and about 8 games for it and was considering trading it to help with the price of a ps3.  But with the ps4 coming out in a few short months i am thinking that money would be better used on buying the new system.  Just need a few opinions..... what do you guys think I should do?

My guess is that they will release a PS4 version. If not wait for a major price drop or discount for the PS3 when the PS4 is released.

Ps4 is still 5-6 months away.

If i were you I would buy a ps3 anyways, if you have the money.

I wouldn't. Borrow a console if you can, or wait a year or two when it'l be available through Gakai.

Eventually they might release it, but not soon. Maybe when its sequel is announced it comes bundled for free.

I would try and borrow a console. Last of Us should be great, but not that great.

They might have it available for streaming on the PS4, or they might make a PS4 version. I currently share a PS3 with my brother and have been thinking of getting my own PS3, I don't know if i should though. lol

Buy used PS3 and copy of game from Gamestop. Beat it, return both within 7 days. Now you can use your money for the PS4.

just for 1 game? no. imo that would be a stupid decision, u already have a 360 and ps4 is right around the corner. not saying the last of us is a bad game or anything, but it was just as i expected, one of the most overhyped/overrated games to come out recently. i think ppl are just getting desperate for exclusives or something to look forward to.

Nope this is work of art 10/10 Reinvigorates the survival action genre. Some of the best set pieces and level designs ever in gameing. well written meticulous and emotional involving plot but most of all is the dynamic between joel and ellie. So no you are actually quite wrong I win

I have actually taken advantage of this for years. As far back when eb games was doing it. Not a bad idea I agree. I remember the first time I did this it was mega man 8 for the PS. Took it back a day after I bought it worried they wouldn't take it back at full value. They asked why I said because I beat it and the let me pick another new game.

Even though The Last of Us is absolutely amazing, I still would not buy a PS3 just to play that game. But throw in MGS4, Killzone 3, Heavy Rain, and Uncharted 2/3, and then you have the perfect excuse to buy one ;)

do you still possess a library of ps3 games? i dont know if i would buy a console just for one game (i havnt played TLOU). there are lots of good games coming out for the ps3 this year and next, e.g. metal gear solid legacy collection, gta 5, disgaea d2, dark souls 2, just to name but a few. it also depends on the your budget. personally i would buy a ps3 and keep it to play these games.

Get PS3, TLOU and PS+. You'll get more than your money's worth. If getting a PS4 at launch is a priority, then I'd say just get that. But most of the games on PS4 are also coming to PS3/360, so you can play them all on PS3 as well. I'm waiting a few months before buying a PS4 simply because there are so many awesome games coming to PS3 this year. TLOU, Rain, Beyond and GT6.

This person is telling you all the right things but also add Uncharted 2 to that list.

Hmm that is a tough one. But as others have stated there are some pretty good games on the PS3. I'll never sell or trade them and TLOU is one of those titles that come around once in a while. The PS4 isn't due for months anyway. You could aways sell the PS3 to recoup I guess since it would still be almost new.

If you think TLoU is the only game worth playing then maybe a PS3 is not the wisest investment for you.

I say no.  TLOU is great and one of the best games on PS3, but buying a console for only one game is dumb.

I think it's worth getting a PS3 just for TLOU. Plus, it'll be a very long time before PS4 has anything that can match this game. It's very unlikely any of the launch games will be of such high quality. Watch Dogs might be the exception but you could get that on PS3.

that is a hard decision, it depends on the money, time and how much you are into the ps library. If you have enough money and can even get a ps4, then yeah. But if you are thinking getting more than one game, have time for it and like the ps brand and it's games then why not

I'm sure there will be an ultra HD remake for the ps4 lol (well not really sure but maybe). I would trade in the 360 now if your not useing it and hold on to the money for the ps4. If you wait you will only get less money.

It's a hard decision to make, just for one game? That really depends on your financial situation or if you can find the PS3 for under 200$. I'd suggest you do pick it up, there are more games you will discover that you wish to play. :)
