Is it too late to buy a PS3?


I’m considering on get the bundle with NHL 13 for $299.99. I also want to get NBA 2k13 and probably Madden 13. But is it worth it now? Will PS4 be coming around any time soon? Even if it does, will sports games like these still come out on the PS3? Should I just wait for something newer? Please help!

  1. why is everyone saying the ps4 is coming out like it is confirmed? sony made a statement about the ps4 saying it isn’t coming anytime soon, meaning for at least 3 years. It might be annouced in my personal opinion around the year after nexts E3. but yeah, this ps3 will be supported long after, so don’t worry.

  2. It’s not too late at all. The PS4 comes out in approximately 11 1/2 months, so you’ll have a year to play your PS3. I personally would wait until the PS4 comes out, but that’s just my preference.

    Also, they’ll still come out with games for the PS3 after the PS4 release; they made PS2 games even 2 years after the release of the PS3.

  3. Don’t wait! Sony confirm that they will support the PS3 until 2015(or 2014) and even after that year,they will supporting it if people keep playing.More sports game like that will be coming to the PS3,the PS4 won’t come out for a while,it{PS4} does not have a release date,for all we know the PS4 could come out 2016!

  4. I don’t think it is at all for a few reasons.

    First one PS4 hasn’t even been announced. The earliest, it’s likely to be announced is next e3, but honestly, I wouldn’t hold my breath, and who knows when it will release even after then. I honestly don’t see it releasing next year. PS3 has only just started to really be profitable for sony, they’ve just released a new cut down model to decrease costs. None of the platform developers like releasing new hardware, because it risks losing customers, and developer support. I get the feeling that The release of ps4, likely depends on Xbox durango, and also Xbox durango likely depends on ps4. Essentially, I would say both companies are waiting for each other to make the first move, and neither really want to. This generation has been incredibly expensive for both sides, I think we’ve seen the last of the 5 year cycles. We already know that developers are in possession of the new xbox, and likely the new playstation. But that doesn’t mean too much. Just that some development work has begun. But remember some games can be in development for a long time. Assassins Creed for example.

    When PS4 is finally released, it will be a good 12 months, at least before it’s finally worth buying, this is true for any new console. New consoles always lack games, and in a lot of cases refinement in there first year.,Sony have already commited supporting PS3 for 10 years (from release) Which means they’ll cease in 2016. When PS3 came out, for a while PS2 still got a lot of games.

    Finally, look at it this way, you’ve only just gotten around to getting a PS3, so I wouldn’t worry too much about ps4’s launch, you’ll have a huge back catalogue to be playing, and once ps4 finally does come out, PS3 games will be sold for the price of a burger.

  5. no. It’s not too late at all. PS4 won’t be coming until at least 2-3 years more. The PS3 is powerful enough that there is no need for a new console anytime soon. Even if the PS4 comes out early you dont want to buy it right away it will be almost 600 when it come out so you still have to wait until the price drops.

  6. I just searched the playstation website and the ps4 release date isn’t even on the site. This probably means that they wont have it ready for at least 1 or 2 years the least. I would buy it and if they come out with the ps4 so what? You can sell it or keep it a couple years and watch the value go up. Hope I helped.

  7. Too late? I wouldn’t say so. If you really want to invest in it, then go for it. PS4 most likely won’t be coming out until 2014, if not late 2013. The PS3 is soaking up some major sunshine now, at least until the Wii U roles around.

    Besides, Sony already said that they will continue to support the console even well after the launch of it’s successor. Remember how the PS2 was still going relatively strong, long after the PS3 came along? It’s probably going to be similar to that, if not better.
