Getting a PS3....

Posted by Redbullet685 (6084 posts) -

Was wondering if the slim was a good version of the system. Wanted to know what games to get other than obvious uncharted 2, LBP, and MLB 10: The Show. Also wanted to know if MAG actually is worth getting?

If you're going to get a new ps3, then yeah the slim is the best choice.

The slim is perfectly fine, and some other ps3 games you might wanna look at are gow3, infamous and killzone 2. The last 2 just got on the greatest hits thing so now they're only $30, which is a great deal for games like that imo.

Yeah slim's good, don't get mag, if you want an online shooter you're better off with MW2, BC2 or even Killzone 2. I'd avoid the resistance series to start with, not bad games but nothing special. Valkyria Chronicles is an amazing game, might be hard to find though. Heavy Rain is amazing but a little short so you might want to just rent it if you're on a limited budget, same foes for GOW3.

Forgot about Killzone and Infamous. Dont think I want to buy GOW3 though, I would rather rent it because I hear it just gets to double digits in length wise, and I usually dont play through games mre than once at least until months later.

Have BC2 on 360 and had MW2 and didnt like it but valkyria chronicles caught my attention when it came out, may get that if i find it.

@Redbullet685:   I have a 120 GB slim and it's amazing.  Never freezes, you can't hear it, it's small, and oh yeah, 120 GB

I have the phat PS3 and it's just fine for me...I don't see the big deal in the slim.

Got the PS3. Ordered the standard bundle with two games of choice of of Walmart.com (Uncaharted 2 and GoW Collection). Got the 250 gb slim for $350 cause the 120 was out of stock and It runs really smoothly. I can say the hardware is much much much much better than the 360's. *Note: i do have both* The online service isn't great and has long update and download times, but how can you complain when it is free. I have the two games said above, MLB 10 the show, Killzone, LBP, Infamous (these three came in a bundle buy 2 get one free) and MAG. My friend also let me rent Heavy Rain off of his gamefly, and I am loving it. I'm about 75-80 percent done with the game and my only complaint is the god-awful walking controls especially when..

So overall, I really like it, maybe even more than the 360.
I could use some people to play with so..... My PSN account is Rokyracoon68.

@Redbullet685: Glad you're enjoying it man. I only just got mine pretty recently as well and have just been scavenging the PSN Store for any cool games.  
 
I'd definitely recommend Flower, a short but very unique gaming experience where you play as the wind. Take a look at GiantBomb's quick look of it. I also bought Fat Princess that's just tons of fun - it's like TF2 and has a little bit of a Worms-factor to it. Class based CTF basically, also on GB's quick look. I've been meaning to buy Demon's Souls as I'm a sucker for hard games - and might pick up Super Stardust HD which was awesome from the demo I played on the store.
