So I've skipped the Playstation 3 so far this generation. I've been in undergrad or grad school and haven't either had the time or money to warrant purchasing one when I already had Xbox 360 for my Netflix/gaming needs. I used to only buy 2-3 titles a year, usually Halo, a sports game and maybe some bargain bin game that looked cool.
The last year or so, I've gotten the gaming bug and have been playing games like crazy as my graduate studies wind down. I've gotten through most of the big Xbox exclusives that I wanted to play and have been eye balling PS3 exclusives and next gen. Now I'm getting an Xbox One first (don't hate) but will get a PS4, probably next spring/summer.
My dilemma is, should I hold off on the PS4 a little longer (back to next holiday) and purchase a PS3 to beat the exclusives from this gen OR get the PS4 and hope that the PS3 exclusives I want are part of the Gaikai streaming service? The exclusive franchises I would be looking to play are Uncharted, Killzone, Last of Us, God of War, Infamous, Heavy Rain, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Sly Cooper and maybe Resistance.
The reason I'm asking now is, that the $200 Black Friday bundle with Last of Us and Arkham Origins seems like such a great deal and I'm not sure if a better value will be found anytime soon. Will normal bundles go down to $200~ in the coming 6-12 months?
Thanks for any insight you folks can provide!
