PS3 on the way!!!! (at last)

Posted by Nate (702 posts) -

I've been wanting a PS3 for a couple years now (basically ever since MGS4 came out), but I just haven't been able to justify it. Mainly because I have a wife, a kid, and bills to pay, and I already have a 360 and a decent gaming PC.  Still, it hurt to be left out in the dark on some dang good exclusives for the PS3 over the past year or two.  Now, I've finally decided to take the plunge. I got a good chunk of change for my birthday and last night I placed the order on Amazon.  The only thing that sucks is I selected the free super saver shipping, which is 5-9 business days. Oh well, I've waited a couple years, I think another week or so won't kill me.
Games I'll be buying - MGS4, of course!  I've got a friend who has Demon's Souls and both Uncharted games so I'll definitely be borrowing those in the near future.  Eventually I'll need to get God of War 3 and LittleBigPlanet (2?).  Oh man, I'm so pumped - how will I get anything done in the next week?

@Nate: You don't really have to get Little Big Planet numero 1.  It's not like there's a huge story you have to keep track of amoungst the games, ala Metal Gear.

@Ahmad_Metallic: 
I'd avoid whatever you ate before that.  :)  Yeah, MGS 4 is a pretty divisive game. Kojima is a bit crazy and the MGS games are pretty unique to say the least. Still, MGS3 was probably my favorite game of the PS2 era, so I know I'm gonna love it.

Yeah amazon is pretty good on their shipping even the free stuff normally only takes 3-4 days.  My advice is wait for that Demon's Souls greatest hit's to land on store shelves and just buy your own copy for 30 bucks.  Also keep an eye out for those upgraded ps2 game bundles they are pretty spiffy.

Cool.  MGS4 is an amazing game.  I still have the original launch 60GB.  The Resistance games are pretty cool too.

@Nate: Resident Evil 5, you might wanna check out Heavy Rain too, from what I've heard MGS4 and the uncharted games are where its at on PS3. Glhb and I am jealous

Well you can get MGS4 for free just by going on youtube. 
 
There are a few other good games out there though. 
 
RE5 steer WELL clear of.
