Why should I buy a PS3?

Having had a birthday this past week I received some of my favorite gifts, Best Buy gift cards. Being the gamer in the family no one is ever really sure what games to get me so I always tell them it would just be easier if they get me gift cards. While I am glad that I received these gifts it leaves me in a bit of a conundrum. I am about $100 away from owning a PlayStation 3.
When MGS4 released I was bitten with the bug to play that game. If you read my first blog post I mentioned that I was tempted to buy the game for $34 at Meijer even though I didn't own the system. There are several other games on the system that I would be interested in playing. After reading about Uncharted I was really excited to play it, and then I found out it was only going to be on the PS3.
I have this problem where I get excited about being able to buy something. Then when it comes time to pulling the trigger I start to have my doubts. Do I need this item? Are there other things I would rather have? Will I regret having purchased this? Things like that. I was in Best Buy and they had one 80GB PS3 in stock. I picked it up, read some of the text on the box and put it back down. I took a stroll around the store came back, and picked it up again. Then I browsed through the games to see which ones I would actually enjoy playing. I was able to count on one hand the PS3 exclusives that I would like to play.
I started thinking that I would just be getting the system for the same reason as I have the Wii. I would only own it for the PS3 exclusive titles, but normally buy multi-console games on the 360 (I'm an achievement whore, sue me). I think in the long run there would be plenty of games for the system that I would want to play to warrant owning the system. So, now I will be debating myself with a list of pros and cons to owning the PS3, and I was hoping for a little insight from some of my fellow CAGs.
