Been thinking about buying a playstation 3. Should i!?
Im not really into computer games that much, will play them sometimes though if nothing else to do!
Im not thinking of gettin it purely for the games other wise i would think about getting a xbox aswell.

I bought a nintendo wii last week, love it! But now im thinking abot getting a ps3 mainly because of the blu-ray. I have a 32" LG HD ready TV which i have never seen the HD working. I really want to get it working like it should on HD. I am waiting abit longer for sky HD price to come down abit and for more
channels to be available, plus i have only just in the last 6 months got sky+.

The main idea in getting a ps3 is i can have a ps3 and blu-ray for cheaper than i can get a decent blu-ray dvd player.
What do you reckon? good idea?

I have a 360 and love it to bits!!

At the same time I'm a bit of a freak and would also love to have a ps3 so I'm not much use in helping you decide lol

although... if you were to buy a ps3... would you be selling the wii? ;)

She kinda stated that the 360 wasnt so much of an option lol...can see this turning into a x360 v PS3 thread..again lol.

Get the PS3, if you as considering spending money on a gadget. As you said it will make use of the features your tv has etc.
Makes sense in everyones head to get a PS3 over a blu ray player really...Having a amazing games console and good quality blu ray player....or just having a blu ray player? PS3 ftw.

But then again, not really worth the money if you are only going to play a blu ray disc once every 2 months or something.

360 isnt a option as it wouldn't get used and doesn't have blu-ray.

I would use the blu-ray on it quite often, once i built up a collection of blu-ray discs! I watch dvds on my normal dvd player nearly every weekend anyway so the blu-ray would get plenty of use.
As for the games, i would play them but not as much as i would the blu-ray.

Just make sense really to get a ps3 when like you guys have said i can get the blu-ray i want plus the extra bonus of the gaming for cheaper than the blu-ray player.

If you got the ps3 make sure you get metal gear solid 4. Fantastic.

Honestly tho its worth it, the bluray is excellent

They are selling it for £180, my brother found a £5 off voucher online so i got it for £175.
I will probably order a ps3 from play.com aswell and use that voucher.

haha, have a scout about online for discounts from play.com... I think its money supermarket that usually has discount codes etc you can use for shopping online...?

My mate works in woolies so he got his staff discount when he bought his ps3 lol I think I might get him to buy another one ;) or see if they have wii's in stock :D lol
