A 160 gb PS3 is down to $199 + a free game via Gamestop's online store right now. Game selection is limited to either MK Komplete or Batman Arkham City but you could always sell the game and recoup some costs. MK Komplete will probably sell for more seeing as how Batman AC is getting a GOTY rerelease in May.

There's a good selection of RPGs on PS3. Everything from Final Fantasy XIII to Tales of aw;erlthsdkfhg;aeht;ae to Skyrim to a slew of PSOne titles from PSN. I'd grab one at that price in a heartbeat if I didn't already have one.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Why did you create a thread asking if it was a good idea to buy a PS3 before E3 two weeks ago, and now another one asking to be convinced to buy a PS3?

To quote SONY: Because it only does EVERYTHING


In all honesty neither the 360 or ps3 has a great rpg line-up compared to the ps2. And quite a few RPGs are multi-platform this gen but ps3 does have one of my favorite games the White Knight Chronicles games.

Jrpg's, Xbox has the best with tales of vesperia. Wrpg's, they both have the same stuff more or less. Multiplayer is free on ps3 but not Xbox 360. Personally, I'd wait for the inevitable E3 price drop for either system as a price drop is certain since Nintendo is putting out a new console.

Don't forget anything NISA publishes is pretty much PS3 exclusive so that's a ton of rpgs plus Valkyria Chronicles and Tales of Xillia if that's ever localized. And some multiplatform rpgs are better on the ps3 like FFXIII, Star Ocean, and Eternal Sonata.

If you don't know by now you don't even deserve the system.

Fallout 3, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect 2 (since you won't be able to play one on PS3), The Elder Scrolls IV: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim... You're not going to play any of these titles with a PS2, and they're mostly around $20.00 a pop now (excluding Skyrim). It plays Blu-Rays. You don't have to pay to play online.

Now, to talk you out of it, I find the PS3 controller to be uncomfortable for long hours of gaming. The update system on the PS3 takes forever, and is considered by most to be terrible. Finally, you can't play your MP3s off of the PS3 in the background while playing games.
