Author Contemplating buying a PS3

Well people, I need some input. As some of you know I'm a gigantic baseball (Twins) fan. MLB 2k has been a joke since making it's debut on the 360, so I'm thinking about taking some of my tax return and purchasing a PS3.

So this is where you come in... Is it worth it? Which model should I go for? Any other games I should look out for other than The Show?

Mooj..... look to your right..... green jacket..... that's me..... I'm in the same boat as you smiley

I too am considering the PS3 with my tax return, and really only because of THE SHOW.  Oh, and the fact that I am now getting 2 red lights on my 360, and it shuts down...... the end is near.

i have bought 2 ps3's since they came out years back..

why? for MLB The Show. hands down the best sports game on the market.

if thats the only reason you guys would buy a ps3, then its not worth it. if you looking  to use it as a bluray player as well, then not a bad buy. but bluray players out there that way cheaper than ps3.

MLB The Show becomes like real baseball after a while, boring!! lol.. i sold both my ps3's bc they collected dust after a while.

as you can see, the PSBL started out ok, expanded to a full league, which then owners dropped like flys, all the way down to an 18 team league, in which only 14 finished. i have recruited at 55 ps3 mlb the show message boards and leagues over past 3 plus years. just cant get enough solid guys to keep the league going.

another thing, the ps3 interface IMO is still way behind the 360, as well as the chats and friends lists etc.

if you are itching to play MLB The Show, do yourself a favor, buy a psp and the show for that. it looks solid and plays a great game of baseball!!

I have an xbox and a PS3 and my PS3 gets alot more use. I will agree with fiddy's statemnt that Playstation Network is not up to par with Xbox Live but they are killing xbox with exclusive titles. Socom,KillZone,Infamous, Uncharted,God of War,MLB the Show,Little Big Planet,Ratchet and Klank,etc.

MLB the Show is by far the best baseball league hands down and its sad that we cant get enough quality ps3 guys to support it.

the thing is, they can kill it all they want with those games, but guess what? i dont play them lol.. and if a guy is on the fence about picking one up and dont play  those kind of games, then whats the point when its behind 360's live service by miles?

sucks, i wish we had the PSBL up and going, but just dont have enough interest.

Still considering just for THE SHOW.  Then I can learn to like other games, like SOCOM.  Wasn't SOCOM before COD?  I mean, I'm thinking SOCOM was like what started all the online team based/tactical military games.  Oh well, it's only $$$

Danny, take that tax return money and buy Dawson his own xbox 360. you promised him one after basketball camp!! i have the voice mail to prove it!! lol :)

but for the UL'ers that wont get to hear it, it goes like this..

"Mr. Fiddy, its Dawson, my Dad told me that when i finish basketball camp he will buy me my own xbox 360.."

that is all!!

man, i feel bad for Dawson. Dad promised a new 360 and now he buying a PS3 all for himself. thats child abuse, im turning you in!! lol..

to bad you did not do this 3 years ago, you could have been in the PSBL and seen how bad the online servers are as well as broken in game chat. enjoy the online aspect of your purchase lol.. you will be saying, man 2k servers were not all that bad lol.

Not worried about online chat. In fact, if you have seen some of my rants on here before, I think having a mic on during gameplay is distracting, and I prefer NOT to have to talk to anyone.

I'm playing an offline season with THE SHOW, so I'm not worried about the servers either.  I know xbox360 servers and on line chat is leaps and bounds better than playstation.  But I'm going for the best sports game ever made.  I'm tired of 2k games. Heck, may be the end of me here on the UL, as I can get all the other games on the PS3 now.  BUT..... I am keeping the 360, and it will be known as Dawson's.  And when it breaks, the new quieter and slimmer 360 will be Dawson's too.

Bring on THE SHOW!!

nice purchase! I dont care what fiddy says, he is just trying to justify selling his ps3 and being an xbox fanboy haha. Ive never had an issue with the online servers of the show and from what I have heard 2k servers are crap and down half the time.  Anyways feel free to hit me up for a game if you feel the itch to play any online games.

no fanboy here, the PS3 has nothing to keep me on their side of the fence. tried it 2 times and other than the show the other games are not appealing to me.. they very soff!!
