My ps3 has been dead for about 2 or 3 months now, and I finally have the scratch to replace it. However, I'm wondering if it's even worth buying a new one right now, with their being talks of new hardware hitting rather soon. I also don't know how many exclusives are hitting anymore that I would like tonplay. However, I do have blurays and ps3 games I can't play right now. Don't know, what do you think?
Is it worth buying another ps3 right now?
It's worth it, yeah. New consoles are still at least one or two years away and there are lots of good games that have come out in the last few months and more are coming, not even counting the ones you already own that you can't play.
I'm sure you could find a good deal with Black Friday / Cyber Monday coming up.
Just buy a new one. Going from the 40GB fat PS3 to the new slims is great. Less heat, less energy and quiet. For $249 I say get one, or look for a bundle that suits you. I've seen $299 bundles of 320GB with like two recent games and a month of Plus

Well, I don't know. If you consider two years (at least) "rather soon" then sure, wait it out. But if it were me I'd definitely get another one.
