Forums - Gaming Discussion - Who's NOT Buying a PS3 this year?

If you're not buying one because you already have one, please refrain from posting.

If you ARE buying a PS3, post here.

------------------------------------

Please post if you're not buying a PS3 in light of the Gamescon announcement, and why (gamelineup doesn't interest you, too expensive, etc).

Not getting a PS3 this year since there's other things I want to buy first. (DSi, NSMBWii, WSR, etc etc)

But glad to know the PS3 is 299 now.



Nope, I have a PC for high-end games. Don't need an outdated PS3.

Most of the games I'd want for PS3 (or 360) are available for and better for PC. The few console exclusives that I wouldn't have access to I can just live without, really, since they are rather few (I can only think of two off the top of my head, and then only one upcoming game on top of that), and moreover, I don't have all the time in the world for games like I used to in the past. >_>

And yeah, I of course have a Wii for games as well. There are quite a few games on the horizon that I'll be wanting to pick up as well, if I can find the time.

It's not so much a money thing, as I could easily afford a PS3 (or a dozen, lol). But it wouldn't be worth the investment, since I wouldn't get much out of it that I can't get already, and I wouldn't have the time to justify it either.

There is not a single game that the ps3 has to offer that I would want to play that isn't already on the 360. I am thinking about buying a ps3 at some point however...I think the ps3 is a good media player and that is something that interests me a lot. The ps3 slim is what the ps3 should have been from the start.

No, I already have what I want.

When was the last time you looked at the PS3's gaming line up? 2006? Sorry for sounding somewhat defensive, but 2 exclusives??

Do you speak of exclusives that interest you, or just exclusives in general?
