I would be. I would probably have gotten tired of like the 1 good game out. That $600 must have REALLY been burning a hole in your pocket, hmmm? Luckily, I was not one of these early adopters. My Wii and 360 are awesome.

Nah they will just wait till the end of time for Sony to deliver on there promises.

But i agree it must really suck to have been used as a pawn by Sony to push there Blue Ray agenda to save there failing company. Then see that all the outrageous boasts about super computer power and graphics only to realize the 360 has just as good graphic and better games. Sad part if is that they actually believe the PS3 will over take 360 in power and performance when that is clearly not going to happen. Developers have always said that the difference between the to console is much much smaller then last gen between the Xbox and ps2.

I don't have any sympathy for early adopters who complain. (especially informed gamers)

Nah I doubt anybody is regretting the purchase.  Maybe the games library isn't that great atm but the Blu-Ray and PS2 library kicks all kinds of ass.

No, I love my PS3. I'm sure you might regret it because you probably already have a negative disposition towards Sony.

Actually, only thing I'm regretting is buying a XBOX 360 too early. It's eating dust waiting for a game to wake 'em up. Poor thing.

Wow, for a second there I thought this might be a serious post, but instead, it's just more mindless Sony bashing. How original. :roll:

If this was an actual question, no, I don't regret it at all. GT: HD, fantastic. Blu-ray movies on my high-def projector: Beautiful. Knowing I have every platform? Priceless. :)

A nice computer? Haha, mine cost $2400 back in May, and it won't even max out Supreme Commander! I custom built it, too, and the equivalent from Alienware or some place like that would've been well over $3000!

No I do not regret purchasing a PS3, and there is more than one game that is worth playing on the PS3.

I like my PS3; do I want more? Yes. Will I get more? I think so. $600 is a lot but the PS3 still has a lot of life to it.

Funny that this question is asked by someone who does not even own one, lol. Do I regret buying my PS3? No way, as I know what killer games are just down the road that I could not stand not being able to play. I have a 360 as well, which I love, but I would take the PS3 any day, if I had to make a choice for the LONG TERM. 

Anyway, as the saying goes....patience is a virtue.;) You cannot expect all of their top games to come out in the first 5 months, can you?:lol: Get real, man.

I think when none of your devisons are turnning a profit execpt one and that you've had a loss of %94 in the last year i would say yes they are failing.

Sorry I love my ps3 regardless of what the bashers say. They say no good games, well I seem to be having lots of fun with Resistance, Motorstorm, and Oblivion nor can I wait for all the stuff coming down the line that I can only play on my ps3 (i.e. MGS4, Killzone2, Lair, Heavenly Sword, Uncharted, Warhawk, GoW3) plus all those multiplatform games. Oh yeah I also have a pretty big ps2 library of about 60 games with a good deal of them left to finish so I'll enjoy my 98% backwards capability.

Nope, I'm loving the PS3 a lot more than the Wii. I watch Blu-Ray movies, play Resistance, VF5, MotorStorm, NBA2k7, NBA Street, Oblivion, and help cure cancer. What do you do?

In all honesty anybody who regets early adopting but uses these boards only has themselves to blame, every console has a settling in period and you can praise the 360 now but it also had to go through all of the "it has no merits to it that aren't available on xbox1 or pc" period as do the Wii and PS3.

So you're telling me you spent the money on those two systems and must now bash the one remaining one because you couldn't afford to finish the collection? Bravo. Psychoanalysis complete.

Although I wish there were more games that were out for my ps3, i am just playing PC while i wait. The only thing that would make me regret my purchase would be a price cut in the near future. I am fine leaving folding@home on while i play computer. I bought a PS3 knowing i wouldn't be getting any killer apps for some time and am fine with that.

first, $600 isn't that much of money to me

second, I enjoyed very much of Blu-Ray watching, and some good games like MotorStorm, VF5, Resistance, and Oblivion ...

I found no reason to regret :)

If I regretted it, I would feel EXACTLY the same for the Wii, and furthermore, the 360 I felt that way one year ago.

So no, I enjoy the multimedia functionality from browsing the net, Blu-Ray, WiFi, and Showing my latest Pics on TV thru the SD slots/Compact Flash/ Pro Duo slots, to Online with Resistance.

I wish there were more games now, sure, but I felt the same way about the 360 a year ago.

The Wii, though, is equally dissappointing, yet it too will pick up, since it's new.

i bought ps3 2 days after launch and think its great. i also own xbox 360 but think the ps3 is a much better built system. the web browser is especially cool. i love being able to browse you tube whilst on the couch. if you only want a games machine then the 360 is the better machine at the moment but if you want an all round entertainment system the ps3 is fantastic and for what you get is actually good value for money.

Nah they will just wait till the end of time for Sony to deliver on there promises.

But i agree it must really suck to have been used as a pawn by Sony to push there Blue Ray agenda to save there failing company. Then see that all the outrageous boasts about super computer power and graphics only to realize the 360 has just as good graphic and better games. Sad part if is that they actually believe the PS3 will over take 360 in power and performance when that is clearly not going to happen. Developers have always said that the difference between the to console is much much smaller then last gen between the Xbox and ps2.

Sony is not a failing company just because their gaming division is not doing very well at this time. The PS3 has a more powerful CPU than the 360. The 360 has a more powerful GPU. Power is more than just graphics, you know. They are basically even. The PS3 is smarter while the 360 is prettier. I am an informed customer who bought a PS3 over a 360 with this knowledge. The PS3's features are worth the money and make it unique and competitive. Good day.

600 dollars is not a whole lot of money! I seen a comercial that for 1600 dollars you could spend a week at one of Disney Worlds resorts. 2 adults 2 children. Geeze, sixteen hundered for a week or six hundered for a life time. I don't know... it seems about the same, right?

No, I'm loving it. To each his own. If you want to be a fanboy who doesn't know what value is and who doesn't understand the fact that PS3 has been out for just a few months that's fine by me.

My 360 is awesome, but I wouldn't go as far saying my Nintendo Wii is.

YES... i regret it everyday since i bought it. I pre-ordered it months ahead of time...and even then i knew it was a mistake. When i picked it up on launch day....i knew it was a mistake. I tried to sell it on EBAY, but that went bust really fast, so i decided to keep it rather than take it back to the store to get my money back. That was a mistake. I bought a couple of blu ray movies that had bad compression codex...they look like garbage. That was a mistake.. I bought a blu tooth headset to chat with people on PSN....that was a mistake. I bought a second controller to try to get my brother interested in playing VF5...it did not work...that was a mistake. I re-bought Oblivion for the ps3 because it was suppose to be better...that was a mistake. Do i regret getting the ps3?....hellz yeah.

I've got three. Resistance, Fight Night, and Motorstorm. My brother has two additional downloaded games, Tekken and Flow. So, to answer your question, no. He also had Tony Hawk and Marvel Ultimate Alliance until he traded them in. So get out.
