• Anyone Own A PS3?

    From crow@80:774/38 to All on Fri Nov 8 13:32:49 2019
    Hey there.

    I'm wondering if anyone still owns a PS3 in 2019. Do you? If so, how long have you had it for and do you still use it?

    I still own my PS3 but I rarely use it anymore.

    I'm wondering if anyone still owns a PS3 in 2019. Do you? If so, how
    long have you had it for and do you still use it?

    We still have it and use it sometimes. Mainly now a days it's used as
    a DVD/blueray player though.

I never got into more modern consoles.I have heard you could sideload Linux on PS3 until Sony screwed that option up. Such a lame move from them.

    The new(er) Red Dead Redemption on XBox is awesome. My son just
    finished the game (I think .. or quit playing it ..) I had a PS3 that
    the optical drive recently quit working on; now bunch of useless games
    (to my knowledge ...). Mostly older madden versions though .. so no
    biggie. It was a great system though.

    No!, the Ps3 was my first console. Before it I was a PC guy (enemy of the consoles :P). But the PlayStation was sooo easygoing before Steam & Origin, that I became a fan (here in Argentina the original software was VERY
    expensive so you got to piracy the games, search for the cracks and so on BEFORE Steam, that's why I prefered the "confort" of just plug & play that happens with the consoles...

    It's too expensive to repair? PS3 is still a great console!

    Yeah for sure. I worked within consumer electronics for years and
    won't ever buy a Sony Blu-Ray, DVD, CD Player, or gaming system based
    on what I know. They design them in such a way that they optical lens
    requires replacement, in most cases, shortly after expiration of
    warranty -- depending on how much it's used. But yeah, based on the
    cost of new gaming systems, the cost of repair is 2/3 the price of a
    new one. Especially on models over 10 years in age (which is the
    typical age manufacturers are required to manufacturer parts for any electronic). I did, however, love the Super Disc that Sony made.
    Great sound. Unfortunate it didn't move as it should have.

    Sad to read that! It's a shame! but the PS3 is also a nice piece of hard to collect and use from time to time :)

    Hmmm... I didn't have yet (touch wood for luck) any problem yet with the PS4. It's easygoing too... and I use it almost everyday. Installed a lot of game, unistall a lot more... never a problem so far :)

Their durability is comparable to one of the Nintendo 64's.

    Yes, and up until recently I used it as my main Streaming machine for Netflix/youtube and the like. I only just switched to a Roku instead, so the ps3 is kind of collecting dust. But it is still my only DVD/Bluray player, so it's certainly not useless. I haven't played games on it much in the last few years, but I originally bought it for Gran Turismo (was it 5 by that point?)

    I never owned PS3, however my PS2 is still somewhere in the basement with
    few even older consoles. Keeping them mostly for nostalgic purposes.
    It feels like gaming back then had something that I can't find in modern
    games. They feel soulless to me.

    videos. They are quite illuminating.The problem with modern games is you get 3
    hours of cut scenes, then 3 minutes of heavily railroaded play, then more cut scenes and then you are asked to buy some DLCs.I mean, it is not all bad, but lots of games today feel like interactive films in which you just go through the motions they give to you.I have seen some modern games that are quite interesting. There was this platform game that was like an early 3d platform game with improved graphics, and they made it specifically because nobody else was making those games anymore.

    Yeah we got a PS3. It's collecting dust together with the Nintendo Wii. Kids just want to play the PS4 these days and pretty soon I suspect the PS4 will join the dust collectors when the PS5 finds it's way to our house.

    I think that we lost the "surprise factor" we are not surprised anymore with the graphics and the sounds and the mechanics... in the 80-90 the graphics
    and sound made huge leaps in between games. Remember the feeling of seeing
    Doom I in action for the first time!?

    Or jewels like Little Computer People or any Accolade Games or Cinemaware
    Games in the C64?

    Now a days, there are a lot of great games out there, but... sadly, we lost
    the capacity of surprise... guess the same happens with the CGI graphics in
    the movies... :(
