PS3 Decommission Day.

nbrowsernbrowser Posts: 6,271
Yep, today is the day I put my second PS3 out to pasture...retire it, just don't find I'm using either one anymore. Good games have evaporated, PS Plus isn't worth it anymore and sadly, PS4 won't be offering much in the way of good games so the last Sony devices in the house...are finally gone. Should wipe them clean and put them on the local craigslist.

    PS4 has plenty of good games. Time to upgrade.

    Nothing wrong with the PS3 my eight year old son plays his all the time. Still making new games as far as I know.

    Ok...anything like...say...Forza 6 or the Forza horizon series? No...XBox exclusives and way more fun that Grand Turismo.

    For the record, I have both PS4 and XB1. If you only like racing games, then yes Forza is king and only on Xbox. I have Forza Horizon 3 and it's fun.

    But PS4 has lots of great exclusive titles like Uncharted 4, MLB the Show, The Last of Us 2 (future release), Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone (future release) etc...

    And there's plenty of fun cross platform games too like The Witcher 3 (my personal favorite), Fallout 4, Battlefield 1, The Division etc....

    Witcher 3 was one of the best games I've ever played, the hype for Cyberpunk 2077 is real.

    All hail CD Projekt Red!

    Also, if you're into gaming, PS4 just makes more sense out of the current lineup for the better specs and build quality. Not to mention the games. Anything from From Software (Bloodborne, Dark Souls).

    Yeah I am knee deep in Horizon Zero Dawn...game is amazing! Couldn't get into the Witcher 3 but before you hang me on a cross I do know it is a great game. I've tried on two separate occasions and just cannot get more than 6-7 hours in. Beyond that CANNOT wait for The Last of Us 2 eeeeeekkkkkk.

    Xbox is trying to sell games on Forza and Halo...not much else.

    There's no wrong answer really. Get the console that has the games you like.

    Forza alone was reason enough for me to switch from PS2 to original Xbox.

    While I'm not married to a brand like a lot of fanboys are, I own a PS3, I do prefer Xbox. I'll get a PS4 at some point, when they're cheap. Before that though I'll get the Scorpio this holiday season. I do find it funny that the diehard PS fanboys touted the PS4 being more powerful since the beginning of this generation (1080P on PS4 vs 900P on XB1 lulz, Xbox sucks) but now that the Scorpio is going to make the PS4 Pro look like a toy they're all saying power isn't everything, it's about the first party games. I mean come on, could they be anymore transparent about their blind Sony dedication? Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony all make decent to good hardware. Don't let fanboyism control you so much that you miss out on excellent games on other platforms.

    Has anyone here bought the Switch yet? The new Zelda is supposed to be one of the best games ever.

    I figured it was nearing time for you to take up Chess in the Park.

    Keep that thing around for Bluray playback.
  • sgmsmgsgmsmg Posts: 129
    Can't you use it for SACD ripping as well. I think firmware dependent though.

    @codycatalist I can't wait to start playing Horizon; I hear from tons of people that it's fantastic. Even more excited for Last of Us 2. The first game was incomparable on a number of levels.

    @Nightfall I have a switch. The Breath of the Wild is incredible. I could be sinking much more time into it than I currently am, but thankfully my self-control has held up... for now. I just ordered Mario Kart 8 Deluxe because what's the point of a Nintendo system without a good multiplayer game? But a new controller costs $70!

    Why? Either or my XBox One's will play Blu-Rays just as well, and the S will do 4K Blu-Ray.

    The original ones yeah, but both mine were slims and neither had SACD playback.

    That all said, both are now gonzo alonzo!

    Last week i need to put off my PS3 because it does not want to turn on and only showing yellow Led. I guess this is called as YLOD. The worst generation in my opinion. Used to have ps1 and ps2 and still have no problem.

    Yeah, that happened with some PS3 units, both mine were unaffected and were running fine the day I sold them. There was a fix for YLOD but I honestly forget what it is.
