I currently have about 1000 dollars burning through my pocket.  I have a passion for 2 things; games and guitars.  You tell me why I should spend that money on a new tv and a playstation 3 instead of a brand spanking new guitar...and...GO!

First before I give you any reasons, do you have an Xbox 360?

#3 Posted by damnboyadvance (4061 posts) -

Because the PS3 is easier to play?

#4 Posted by francesthemule (155 posts) -

Buy a guitar.

#5 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

Hey you should buy a PS3.

Only joking!

 You should steal one.

Convince me to convince you to buy a PS3.

#7 Posted by Radar (904 posts) -

You don't actually want one if you can't convince yourself to get one.

#8 Posted by damnboyadvance (4061 posts) -

Convince me to convince you to convince me to convince you to by a PS3.

I have another forum trying to convince me of that already.

It's not deep, it's the truth.

That's even more deep... To be honest though, it's mostly because I am torn between the two options, I'm looking for input on both sides of the fence.

You already have a guitar. Oh, and also, The Beatles Rock Band. Not that it's exclusive or anything...

#14 Posted by Fr0Br0 (3101 posts) -

HEY! You, buy one.

#15 Posted by 71Ranchero (2829 posts) -

The guitar could get you laid(maybee).

Buy the guitar, unless you want to have a blu-ray player that on occassion you'll get to play games on.

#20 Posted by KamasamaK (2409 posts) -

Games? Blu-rays? Music? It's hard to convince someone you don't even know to choose which thing(s) they would be better off with.

Do you already have a guitar, and if so how big of an improvement would the new one be?

#21 Posted by MrGetBonus (784 posts) -

I don't know how to play a guitar so you should by a PS3.

#22 Posted by MatthewMeadows (588 posts) -

Do it

You already have a guitar, but you don't have a PS3. Someone who's really good at playing the guitar doesn't need a fancy guitar to make good music, you know it's true! So practice your guitar playing and buy yourself a PS3! Problem solved =) You'll have some great games to play and you'll still have your guitar!

#25 Posted by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

I should not have to

False, a good guitar goes a long way.

Again...a better guitar can go a long way..you're talking like a guy who doesn't even play guitar.

I refuse to convince anyone to buy it if they are under the age of 18. 

18+ is ok tho'

nah i'm not being serious, buy a PS3 or don't, I don't care. I bet I wouldn't even notice if 400.000 more players joined the PSN let alone 1 extra person.
I've got enough dudes to play with

NEVER

#31 Posted by guiseppe (2842 posts) -

If you need convincing you probably aren't interested enough to warrant a purchase of said product. Still, I'll give my personal pros and cons:

Pros: Reliable, Bluray, free online service, excellent media support.
Cons: Expensive, Not too many interesting games if you own a 360, online service isn't as good as the 360's, but still not bad.

#32 Posted by Daryl (1781 posts) -

Buy the guitar and be full of regret.

#33 Edited by KamasamaK (2409 posts) -
@guiseppe: In case you missed it, expense is not an issue except that he can only afford one of the two things he's interested in. He's conflicted on which to buy and needs convincing to buy one over the other.

EDIT: This was also directed at others who claim if he needs convincing then he doesn't really want one.

If you need convincing, you obviously don't want one, so don't get one. Perhaps you should just save your money for a rainy day?

#38 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

Its got great games and plays blu-rays, what more convincing do you need?

#39 Posted by demonbear (1877 posts) -

Dude there is not a day that goes by, that i dont say out loud, and my girlfriend can confirm this, that i love my fuckin ps3. Its my dvd player, its my bluray player, its my divx player, its my game console, its the very best thing i've ever plugged on my HDTV.

BUT

If you look at the ps3 specs and you dont feel like you have to own that mofo right now? Just buy a guitar and be on your way.

#40 Posted by ki11tank (683 posts) -

I can have an opinion that's different from yours and still play guitar, you know.

Okay, let's put it this way: If I had the choice between buying a PS3 or a new and better guitar, I would buy a PS3 (assuming I didn't have one already). My old Peavey guitar and amp still does the trick and buying a new guitar wouldn't change much for me. Since the topic creator's two passions are games and guitars, I'd heartily recommend a PS3 if only for all the content he would otherwise miss. A new guitar really doesn't add that much to the table when compared to an entire new console with the library of games that includes.

Judging from your Icon, maybe you can wait and see what happens when Final Fantasy XIII is released. 

If the PS3 version is better than the X360 version, then there you go :p 

#46 Posted by Tebbit (4485 posts) -

Get one!!! For Shatter alone.
And Fat Princess, and Wipeout HD. And then all those old skool games that people still buy on the "diskular format"

That's not an opinion...a better guitar sounds 100x better then a shitty one and gives you an overall better sound. That's like saying a wal-mart guitar will sound the same as a Gibson Les Paul Standard.

HELP ME, HELP YOU!


ive never touched a console but for some reason i like the X360 more. if i get to buy a console now i'd pick the x360
#49 Posted by Cerza (1653 posts) -

Buy the guitar. Playing the guitar, regardless of how bad you are, can get you laid. Playing video games, regardless of how good/bad you are, can not.
