If you wait for the PS4 you will probably be waiting a few years.

True. PS4 isn't coming out tomorrow. Sure Sony have developed it, or are doing it, but atm, their main focus is NGP. Or you could buy NGP.

Wait for the PS4 that is around 3 or 4 years away, costs like $700, has bugs and will have like only 2 or 3 decent games around launch. (sarcasm)

This. PS4 hasn't been announced yet, even if it announced next E3 it wont come out till 2013. If you want to wait 2 years, go for it I guess, but it's a bit silly.

I would get another PS3, there will be a few more YEARS of great games coming out, no reason to wait that long for a PS4 really. Top that with the fact that there will only be 1 maybe 2 games worth owning at release and the choice is quite simple...PS3.

The PS4 isn't exactly around the corner, so if you plan on not playing any PlayStation games until around about 2014 I would get a PS3 just to pass the time.

I love my PS3. But Id wait for a price cut down $199 at least. PS3 should be golden through 2012 (based on what's being announced) and probably into 2013 as well, but after that who knows. If I were deciding on a PS3 console right now I wouldn't want to spend $299, I'd wait for the price cut, and I really think they will cut at least $50 at E3, but down to $199 wouldn't be surprising either. I'd also see what Nintendo is offering and at what price. If Nintendo hits a $299 price point, even if PS3 cuts to $199, the Nintendo might be a better "stop gap" console until you get the PS4 in 2013 or 2014.

This. Besides I'm assuming you already have games for your PS3, so this really is a no brainer, isn't it?

If you're happy with waiting for possibly 2 years or more to pay a premium for when PS4 comes out, go for it.

Nobody knows when the PS4 is actually coming out. They may have already started working on it, but it could still be 3 or 4 years before it actually releases. I really don't think they will announce it this E3. I would guess they will be talking more about the NGP in their conference.

1) Waiting for something without an official releasing date is stupid. It's not like every year you get to see a new generation of consoles. If it would be a smartphone (say the iPhone) it was reasonable to wait but not in game consoles. 2) PS3 costs reduced quite a bit so you wouldn't have to go into bankruptcy while purchasing it. 3) There are plenty of great games coming out soon and a lot more great games that already came out. 4) Even if Sony will announce PS4 tomorrow, it will take at least half a year to actually releasing it.

I guess I will go for a new ps3 ,I was just staying that maybe it will come out next year in E3 bec nintendo announcement that a new console is going to release soon ,so I was just saying that maybe microsoft and sony will do the same,bec I think that sony felt sorry for releasing ps3 after one year of 360,they made them lose a lot of money ,even ign said that.

Thanks every one for trying to help I really apperciate it

I guess I will go for a new ps3

And essentially, that's calling someone stupid... the OP did ask whether or not to buy a new ps3 or wait for the ps4, right? The OP indicatied that he was pondering waiting for the ps4 release, which the poster I quoted said was stupid.

If you gonna wait for Playstation 4. It will be about 3 years until it is ready. Playstation 3 is $299.99 brand new (you even get a pack-in game) Black Ops.

So unless you going to camp out at Best buy for the November 17th 2014 midnight launch. Get a PS3 and start gaming. Sony has just admitted that they are working on Playstation 4. So it will be a long wait.

based on video game history for the past 20 years, buying a launch console has never been a good idea. so stick to ps3. wait 2-3 years after ps4 comes out then buy it.

Even if the PS4 is announced at E3 this year, you'll still have a long wait. If anything, wait for some holiday sales later in the year. Maybe you'll get a nice bundle and some cash back/credit.

Walmarts doing a deal right now where if you buy a PS3, you get Black Ops, the DLC maps, and MW2 free. I'm not a huge fan of COD but its a great deal.
