You are in luck - you can play Warhawk online through an app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.thalhammer.warhawkreborn&hl=en_US

It is kinda cool to own the full 7th gen Triforce again, got em all lined up under my TV.

There's not really anything left on PS3 I haven't already played or passed on, but it has been a very long time since I played the games I did enjoy on it, so revisiting those should make these long barren months more bearable.



Hope you have a good time with it.

Depends on the model I guess? My Super Slim works flawlessly since 7 years.

The one I just picked up is the 2009 regular slim. For a "slim" model it's still a fair size, I'd forgotten how big they were haha.

My super slim didn't last long at all. Technically it still works fine, and the problem is very miniscule. Basically, anytime the fan kicks into high gear it makes a loud grinding noise. And I can't stress enough that when I say loud, I mean loud as fuck. Like... oh shit, the neighbors are going to call the cops, loud. I tried getting into the console but I don't think I have the tools or the patience.

Keep in mind, this only really happens when the fans rev up all the way, so I can use the console for Netflix and maybe a little bit of gaming, depending on what I'm playing. But since I do have another PS3 phat that's in working condition, I just opt to use that instead for gaming.

Oh, and it's just a 12GB super slim (yes, they did make 12GB PS3s briefly). I remember the day I found out that I couldn't install a 10 GB game because it needs to allocate about twice that amount of space to perform the install. That day has since been known as Christmas.

Cheers, I certainly am so far! I've owned one before so already know what I like on it, just going back and revisiting games I haven't played since 2009-2014 for old time's sake.

It's my second favourite Sony system after the PS1.

I got 4 new used PS3 games today: Bulletstorm, Medal of Honor, Lollipop, Spider Man Shattered Memories, should be good fun for a while.

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

I'm playing with mine regularly. Right now i'm working on Dead Space 3 (finished 1 and 2), Duck Tales Remastered, Resonance of Fate and Devil May Cry 4.



I play my 7th gen multiplats on 360, or on Wii in the case of COD and Sonic Racing, but the Uncharted & Resistance trilogies plus Killzone 3 make the PS3 worth it for me.
