  1. I think it would be. Try to find bundles at Walmart, usually around $250. My first ps3 was over $400, so they're a lot more affordable. Good luck. Unless you'd like to wait and instead purchase a ps4, the ps3 will be worth it.

  2. This is a hit or miss question.


    The PS3 has TONS of amazing games for it right now. If you are going to buy one, now is the time to do it. The best part is, you can pick up one second hand for around $100-$200 (depending on HD size).

    I recommend the following games:

    – The Last of Us (PS3 exclusive)

    – Beyond Two Souls (PS3 exclusive)

    – Grand Theft Auto 5

    – Red Dead Redemption

    – Uncharted (PS3 exclusive)


    Gaikai is coming to PS4 in mid-2014, meaning the above games “should” be available to play on the PS4 (though digital download only). The PS4 is a better console and great games are coming down the road (Watchdogs). You can pick up a PS4 for $399. It’s twice the price, but it’s a better system for the long term.

    That being said, if you just want to play GTA5, go for it. Target, Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, Toys R Us, ect… almost always run specials on PS3. I just recommend getting the PS3 Super Slim 12gb model for what you are look for.

    Hope that helps!

  3. Actually ps3 is much more worth getting even though the ps4 is out. Reason? Ps4 doesn’t play ps3 games there for ps4 has very few games. And every game that will come out for ps4, will be getting out for ps3 as well for a long time (atleast most games). So yea.

  4. Yeah it’s worth getting, there are a load of great games available such as the last or us, uncharted 1,2 and 3 and beyond two souls.

  5. If anything its the best time to get a ps3 there cheap and all games are on sale. plus you and download digital games. I recommend you get PlayStation plus membership. I'd be happier to get a ps3 then a 4 at this time as the ps4 don't have many games.
