Uh, if you can afford it and want a PS3 then I say go for it. If you really only want to play GTA4, I would wait to purchase it incase there is a hardware/software revision on the PS3 between now and then.

The only hardware changes for the PS3 will be the release of the 80GB unit. That unit will be back at $599 instead of the current $499.

Firmware updates are released all the time. It can be updated online, or with a media card.

I say, if you have the money now, get it. Once the 60GB units are sold out, the price will jump back to $599.

If you enjoy entertainment and like stuff in HD then get it. I bought one off of ebay for $350 before they went on sale and havent regretted it since. I love the fact that its blu ray dvd. Meant one less electronic thing I have to buy if I want everything in HD

ps3 is by far the best system ever beside the game line up for it is ridiculous. I have GTA4 on reserve so go for it.

Sony always over promises and under delivers. I'd wait till the game came out to see if it really holds up to what it claims, but currently just about everyone of the cross system games out on the market the Xbox 360 is beating out the PS3. And now that Paramount jumped ship on Blu-ray to HD-DVD, Blu-ray might not be so safe anymore to be the new determined format.

isnt the game line up what makes the system? isnt games what makes a system worth buying? if not why did you buy it and why is it the best? I buy systems for the games and the game line-up. Hense that's why the Wii and the 360 are doing better than the PS3.

could say the same about the ps3 I know of 3 people that had the 60gig launch units and all of them had to be exchanged for new ones after they stopped working one only lasted 3 days, granted he played RFOM like 12 hours a day if not more. still haven't heard anything bad about the wii. but I will stick to the 360 and the better games

I picked mine up for Resident Evil and a few other titles. I tried playing some ps2 games on it and they look like crap. Not sure why. I can't really play the games since I now get dizzy. Not sure what it is, never had the problem before. Looks like I'll be using it as a bluray player.

Do you have an HDTV? You can also force the PS3 to upscale the video to HD, and there's also an option to smoothen out the graphics.

I've messed with the options and have the latest firmware. I'm HDTV and the ps2 games I'm playing look like crap. The gran turismo hd looks fantastic and in full 92" but the ps2 games are about a 46" viewing screen. Doesn't matter if I change the aspect ratio, it still looks shitty. Nothing better than playing RE/Silent Hill games on my ps2 on a 92" screen, middle of the night, with the surround sound on.

I think I've turned of my ps3 4 or 5 times since I've owned it, all the other times I leave it on, no problems here, plus there's a new tony hawk game coming out next month too, I believe.

No shit? My ps2 games are all upscaling, and look incredible.

i love the game lineup on ps3...

all of the sports games, gran turismo HD, formula one championship edition (my personal favorite)....that's pretty much all I would need.

but the xbox was a more powerful system than the ps2 and it lost, so more power isn't always better, it comes down to games, the 360 has them the ps3 doesn't

Game line up does make the system but the line up for games to be released for ps3 will overshadow the 360 but sony will have to lower the prices of the systems for that to happen.

that has yet to be determined. First, they have to figure out how to make an impressing game on the PS3. They have yet to do so. Wasnt it Sony's response to the 360's launch stating "The next generation dosent start till we say so"? Something along those lines. Well if that is the case, I'm not impressed yet. The 360 is owning the PS3 on just about every cross format game. But then again I guess its possible what you say is true if you enjoy playing japan RPGs all the time.

Impressing? You mean impressive? And 360's suck as far as I'm concerned, everyone I know that has one as of yesterday, their's is fucked up. Me and my friend Ash bought skate and were wanting to play it yesterday on the 360, but his is fucked up now, we knew his cousin had one, called him, his is fucked up, my friend Nick has one, called him, fucked up, my friend Matt has one, called him, fucked up. Starting to see a trend here? My PS3 works fine, but there were some small fixes for the PS3 version of skate, so instead of it coming out on the 13th like the 360, it comes out on the 24th. It sucks waiting, but oh well.

We'll maybe its just you are bad luck. When you call somebody their 360 screws up. Please don't call me then. I guess I could do the same and call all all the people that have a PS3 and ask them their status..... but wait, don't know anyone who bought one. PLEASE.... If we're going to have a intelligent debate on why the PS3 is better than the 360, bring some facts to the table other than hear say. I could bring the same kinda "BS". [Distant far Land] Joe's PS3 caught on fire, Bill's PS3 over heated, Jill's PS3 fell down a hill, and Jack's PS3 came tumbling after her.[/Distant far Land] We all know the 360 had some overheating issues, but now thats why we have a 3 year warranty on the 360. PS3 have the same?

All consoles have returns and defects. Heck, look at the PS2 when it started out. It had major problems but it still owned the Xbox due to content. But this time around the 360 has the content and the PS3 is scraping the bottom of the plate.
