Debate of the Day: Should I Buy a PS3?

Sony has dropped the PS3’s price to $250, and now more than ever, I’m thinking of finally breaking ranks to get one. I’ve been an Xbox man ever since I jumped ship from PS2. Before that I was Nintendo all the way. I guess you could say I’m not the most loyal consumer.

But now we’re at the point where loyalty doesn’t seem to matter. Why can’t we have both systems? Well, for a long time it just seemed like a waste, as 80% of the titles I wanted to play were available on both systems. But now, in the twilight of this console generation, I find myself really wanting to get around to PS3 titles I never got to play. Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Infamous. All great games (I’ve been told) that I could never experience for myself as I wasn’t in a room with a PS3 for longer than a few hours at a time.

It also seems weird to buy a new console as this generation is winding down. WiiU will be out in a year or so, and if it’s any good, I might have to pick it up. Sony and Microsoft will likely announce a new console next summer to keep pace.

I think that this is probably exactly the time to buy a PS3 though. The price isn’t going to get much lower after all. I probably should have bought it at the beginning of summer though, as now that it’s fall we’re about to have a torrent of new releases come out (BF3, MW3, Saints Row, Skyrim, etc), and I’d be prone to play those on Xbox (as it’s what I’m used to) and I wouldn’t have time for those other old PS3 games. I suppose Uncharted 3 is on the way though…

I don’t know, if you were in my spot, do you think it’s worth it for these few titles? And what other PS3 exclusives should I play that I’ve missed? I wasn’t a huge Killzone or Resistance fan as I did manage to play those some. Kind of generic as generic gets.
