I say invest in PlayStation+ and get a few console features and try out all the games they just put up for "free" for $50, and anything else that they put up this year.

Heavenly Sword

@Lego_My_Eggo: How long do the free games last? Debating on doing this just for the free games?

#15 Posted by ExplodeMode (851 posts) -

Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time a really underrated PS3 exclusive. I guess no one really talked about it because it came out near Uncharted 2, Batman:AA and Demon's Souls. It's really cheap now and I thought it was quality.

#16 Posted by MourerR (12 posts) -

@Nightriff: As long as your Plus membership is active.

#17 Posted by Lego_My_Eggo (1082 posts) -

@Nightriff: Till the PS+ subscription is up, but if your subscription runs out you can renew the subscription and everything you got free is unlocked again. They rotate new stuff every month i think and so long as you download the game it is tied to your account and can be downloaded whenever so long as you have PS+.

#18 Posted by Nightriff (6472 posts) -

@Lego_My_Eggo: So as long as I am a PS+ member I can play the games but when I stop being a member it is blocked again? I'm confused on this.

#19 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8020 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid 4

oh wait... dammit

#22 Posted by Lego_My_Eggo (1082 posts) -

@Nightriff: Basically yes, everything you get for free under PS+ only works if you still have PS+. Here is the PS.Blog post about it for more info.

#23 Posted by Nightriff (6472 posts) -

@Lego_My_Eggo: Thanks for clearing this up for me man.

#24 Posted by Sackmanjones (5216 posts) -

What games do you like?

#25 Posted by AgnosticJesus (547 posts) -

Welcome to 2006.

#26 Posted by MourerR (12 posts) -

@Nightriff: That's right. If your membership runs out you lose access but if you renew later on you can play those games again.

#27 Posted by Nightriff (6472 posts) -

@MourerR: Yeah I probably won't do this then, I don't want to get locked into buy their subscription every year to play games. They should make it that you have to buy a year subscription to get the free games to weed out the people that would buy the smaller subscription for the free games (i.e. me)

InFamous 2 is great. Love it. Best open world traversal in video games.

Oh, and Uncharted 2 is off the uncharts.

#29 Posted by mot (36 posts) -

If you were only going to buy one game, I would make it the Uncharted Greatest Hits Dual Pack. Uncharted 1 and 2 for 40 bucks!

What are you saying to this poor person?! lol

I'd go with Uncharted, Infamous, Folklore (if you want something a bit different), God of War collection or 3, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus collection.

#31 Posted by me3639 (2006 posts) -

Killzone 2. I havent played 3 yet, but damn that game is really good.

#32 Posted by Hizang (9359 posts) -

If you are also getting a Move Controller/Navigation Controller I recommend Sorcery, fantastic game.

#33 Posted by fox01313 (5177 posts) -

Agreed with many on this list but also get into PSN+ as there's a lot of free games this month (like Just Cause2) which are well worth the time going into.

#34 Posted by Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto (598 posts) -

Dead Space 2 (brand new copy)

Any and all PS1/PS2 titles on the PSN

Gran Turismo 5

GTA IV complete edition

Catherine (special edition boxers FTW)

#35 Posted by coakroach (2493 posts) -

Uncharted 2 and MGS4

No one's really said it yet.  
Congrats! I was a staunch--and I mean staunch--360 owner for the last five years. And I just got my PS3 in December, but holy shit, man. I love it. I hope you love yours just as much.

#37 Edited by CajunCornDog (2 posts) -

Is the PS3 your only HD console? Do you own a 360 and/or PC? Kind of important to know.

Also, what kind of games do you enjoy?

#38 Posted by yakov456 (1969 posts) -

Buy a 3 month sub to PSplus and you have an instant crop of free games to mess with.

#39 Posted by Flyinnmunkee (32 posts) -

Yeah get Journey, make sure to play through it in one sitting, its like 2 hours

Yes get Journey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God, that game is so damn good

#41 Edited by falling_fast (2601 posts) -

Yakuza 3 & 4

Uncharted 2 & 3

Team ICO Collection

Heavy Rain

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots


pretty much the only exclusives you need.

#42 Posted by Subject2Change (2971 posts) -

PS Plus is good in short bursts. THey just released FULL retail games on it for FREE. LittleBigPlanet 2, inFAMOUS2, etc are available for free. If you can play through em quickly you can get 3 months and then cancel; 18 bucks for a handful of games is nice.

#43 Posted by GeoffPeterson1 (73 posts) -

I'm sorry but the sad truth is............ PS3 HAS NO GAMES.

#44 Posted by Lava (726 posts) -

Uncharted series (or just 2 and 3)

Ratchet and Clank Future series

InFamous series

Metal Gear Solid 4

LittleBigPlanet 2 just because

Killzone 2 and 3 are both pretty good.

These are the games I could recommend for PS3 exclusives. I'm sure I am forgetting some but these are the ones I have really enjoyed the most.

Hyperdimension Neptunia >_>

#47 Edited by mitsuko_souma (138 posts) -

-The Uncharted series is a must, although I am playing through UC3 right now and not enjoying it as much as the first two games.

-If you haven't played Red Dead Redemption, get that pronto. It's probably only $20 now.

-I would say go for a 3-month PS Plus subscription and play all those games for free.

-If you like FPS, Killzone 3 is actually a pretty good game. I found it to be much more enjoyable than the Crap of Duty games.

-Pass on Infamous (Infamous 2 is free w/ PS Plus anyways). It is overrated and boring with repetitive missions.

Valkyria Chronicles

and maybe fifa 12
