PlayStation 3 is it still worth to buy?

Greetings guys, I'm struggling with one question: "Should I buy Playstation 3"
I can't afford PS4 atm. Becouse I'm only 17 years old. Can you give me your advice is it still worth?

Of course it´s still worth.
The console itself is pretty cheap and you get most great games for 10 euros while you have to pay at least 40 for ps4 games. ( There are not even great one released )

Have you played some singleplayer pc games the last few years?
If not it´s even more worth to get a ps3.

I´ll just list my must haves for Ps3 ( Some are multi platform titles but I dont know if you´re playing on pc ) :

Uncharted 1 - 3
Tomb Raider
The Last of Us
Beyond two Souls
Bioshock 1 + Infinite
GTA V
Metal Gear Solid 4
*** of War 3
Dark Souls 1 + 2
Okami
Heavy Rain

I´d say these are my "mainstream" favourite games for the console.
If you like jrpgs you should also take a look at :

FF13 ( all 3 parts ) -> Probably one of the worst party of final fantasy but still a pretty good game

FF X / X-2 HD Remaster -> A great remake of a amazing Ps2 game

Nino no Kuni -> quite a "childish" art style but a great game overall

Valkyria Chronicles -> amazing tactic rpg

Tales of Xillia -> pretty standard jrpg but imo above the average

So as you can see there are many great games on Ps3 and you get most of them for 10 euros or less.

Yes, why not? I still play PlayStation 3 and the most games you can play on it and you needn't pay for playing online.

Sure,

I have two PS3..

One with jailbreak it looks very nice on my table.

The other one is not with jailbreak and it also looks great under my TV.

But I never play with it.

If you need some decoration buy it!

Yea it´s just the form factor but I recommend you to get a slim since the fats are all pretty old now and technical issues happen way more often than with the slim.
The superslim is okay as well but not as good handled as the normal slim version.
Some people say the superslim is kinda loud but for I dont hear any real difference to the slim.

I dont know about Fifa tho.
Maybe your pc is potent enough to handle it?
I just played Fifa 14 and the most new features we´re just available on the new gen versions, I dont know if Fifa 15 is exactly the same on Ps3 and Ps4.
( Besides the graphics ofc )

I dont know about the prices in luthinia but In Germany that would be quite expensive.
Also thats a fat which I wouldnt buy anymore.
Rather get a slim or superlim.





So one of these models.
Also you might consider an Xbox?
It´s cheaper than the ps3 usualy and the controller is better.

That one doesnt exist anymore.
The RoD ( "Ring of Death" ) just existed within the first models.
The Xbox Slim doesnt have this problem anymore.

However the Ps3 imo still has better exclusives and a br player :-)

red light error?

I played my xbox ~24h (2 years ago) all was fine..

U can play long.. ^^ (with xbox slim)



I would recommend you to buy a jailbreaked PS3.. and maybe a VPN account. Just look on ebay for Playstation 3 3.55 firmware or something like that.

Why should you buy a jailbreaked Ps3?
He mainly wants to play Fifa so I wouldnt recommend the chance of a online ban because of jailbreak.
Also the 3.55 ones are usualy more expensive than "standard" firmware ones.

@ Lohgock
Only for Fifa?
Mh.. buy it for pc (not sure if your pc can handle it) and play it with an Controller.

Best way I think.. you need only to buy a PS3 or Xbox Controller (buy this one)
And Fifa on a page, its like ~50€ for controller and fifa 15.

So no need for ps3..

if you wanna play a lot of games without online than buy a jailbreaked ps3
and if you wanna play more online games than Fifa buy a cheap ps3 not xbox cause u need to pay for online gaming on xbox.

You should buy, if you buy one of the both, the ps3.
I myself got the First edition of the Xbox 360 and i advise you to buy the ps3, because the Xbox scratched automatically CDs and you have to pay to play online.
That the Xbox scratched CDS is a generally Problem.
