The lights are on
As a current Xbox 360 owner, I have recently been contemplating picking up a PS3. I am really just looking to round out this generation (already have a wii). The only problem, is I'm not sure what a PS3 has to offer. I already have a bluray player, so that perk is gone. And any game that isn't exclusive to the PS3 I can just pick up for my 360.
So my question to you PS3 owners is what am I missing out on? What are your favorite exclusives and why? The only two that I know of that interest me are LittleBigPlanet and Modnation Racers (which I know isn't out yet, but has an interesting premise.
Ive been into PC games all my life, to be more specific MMO's in general. As of lately with work and school i have not had much time, so i decide i would dive into the world of non-pc gaming.
I did alot of reading about the xbox360 and the ps3. Everyone i talked would say, "Go 360" "Xbox Ftw" but there was something about the ps3 that made me favor it more.
Today or tomorrow i plan on going out and getting the new slim ps3. There were just a couple of things i was wondering.
How is the online community?
I love rpgs, any really good ones here?
P.s. I play on getting Littlebigplanet and MGS when i get the ps3
well for the online community....i think its very healthy and alive.
RPGs......well fallout 3 (started on the 360) for one is awsome and we're finally getting DLC!! The pitt, operation anchorage and broken steel are up!
good luck with your ps3!
The online community is pretty good as of late. It's not Xbox Live, but I'd say it is just short of that in terms of functionality. And it's pretty decently sized too, with more and more people adopting the PS3 Slim.
As for RPGs, first and foremost you have to check out Valkyria Chronicles. It's sort of like a tactical RPG with action elements and it all melds pretty well.
Alright so my favorite Playstation exclusives (Series and individual games) have to be: Ratchet and Clank, LittleBigPlanet, God of War, Kingdom Hearts, InFamous, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, Fat Princess, and Gran Turismo. There are tons of amazing games that are going to be coming out only on the PS3. Plus its nice not having to pay for the internet service (even if its not as great as the 360's).
Well the main reason I could point out would be that the graphic power and ability to do many different things with games is starting to come clear. I was just reading about a game called Rage(being developed by id makers of doom, quake) and they were saying with there new game engine that they were getting better performance out of the PS3 being that it has more power and a built in hdd. I really think this is the way things are gonna go from here on out. As far as blu-ray the reason the say the PS3 is the best is because blu-ray is still an evolving tech so with the PS3 you can upgrade to the newest version of blu-ray every time the upgrade gets released.

Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns Of The Patriots
Ratchet and Clank A Crack In Time
Gran Turismo 5
The Last Guardian
White Knight Chronicles
Mod Nation Racers
If you like these games, buy a PS3. If you don't, then don't buy one. Simple enough.
I heard a rumor that in the future 360 games would have to be down scaled in comparison to the same game on the ps3. head of sony europe supposedly said that. heard it on g4
Uncharted 2 already has a 97 from Metacritic (the lowest is a 90!), God of War series, Ratchet and Clank series, inFamous is awesome simply because it is, Kilzone 2 is pretty cool, Metal Gear Solid if you like stealth, if you like racing games, then it has Motorstorm and Gran Turismo, and the free online, which isn't as good as LIVE, though.
So, if you like any of the games that is only on the PS3, then you might as well get it so you can play those games. Not solely on one game, but there is a high chance that iof you like one of them then another like it is on the way or is already out.
Imo, the online only games aren't that great, though, which is hat some people is the best thing about the PS3.
I don't have a PS3 just yet but now with the $300 price tag and a nice backlog of games, I really don't have a good reason not to get one. Of course, there are some interesting looking games coming down the pipe. I'm hyped for Uncharted 2, having played the 1st one at a friend's house and impressed with the animations, settings and blockbuster action. ModNation Racers looks like another cool addition to the 'Play. Create. Share' ideology. MAG seems to be another excellent addition into the online console shooter mix.
Sony gets a lot of bad press, and most of it is deserved but if you can look past all that and see what they have to offer and what is on the way, I think that now's a great time to get yourself a PS3.
Uncharted 2 man! I have played some of it and it is the reason to get a PS3.

Don't look at me in the eyes!
Online play is free!
Admiral Ackbar, it's a trap!
With the great exclusives the console has so far, such as Uncharted 1 and 2, the Ratchet & Clank games, inFamous, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, Valkyria Chronicles, the Ninja Gaiden Sigma titles, which both seem to be better than their Xbox counterparts, Demon's Souls (with a nifty 90% on GR, currently), MGS4 and LittleBigPlanet, there's no longer the issue of the PS3 having a lackluster line-up of exclusives.
And with games like The Last Guardian, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, ModNation Racers, MAG and White Knight Chronicles on the horizon, now seems to be the best time to buy one. Especially with the recent price drop. Not to mention, it does give you the option as a secondary blu-ray player.
Are you ready for a list of awesome PS3 exclusives? You're not? Too bad.
God of War 3
Final Fantasy Versus XIII
White Night Chronicles
Not only great games, but the Playstation Network is free, even though it's worse.
