What are some good PS3 games?

Postby Chris » Sat Jun 07, 2008 12:05 pm

And by PS3 games, I mean PS3-exclusive games... I already have a 360, but with MGS4 coming out this next week, I'll be buying a PS3 when I get back stateside on Monday.

So far, my list of interest is:

Resistance
MLB The Show
Metal Gear Solid 4

You're going to buy that big, ugly box? I'd wait for the inevitable cheaper version. I guess I'm pretty patient about that stuff.

Out of those:

MLB The Show - I'm definitely getting right away, hopefully used if I can, since I'll be running low after a PS3 and MGS4.

Uncharted - Probably once I finish MGS4.

Resistance - In a week or two.

The others that I want:
Heavenly Sword
DMC4
Unreal Tournament III

The rest I either have for 360, or aren't interested in.

I'm debating what PS3 to get..

40GB + MGS4 = less than $500
80GB MGS4 bundle = $499.99 plus tax (and dependant on availability, as I didn't pre-order it)

I desperately need to get MGS4 when it comes out to quench my bloodthirsty fanboy appetite, however, I only have $500 to spend.

I could get the 80GB bundle, but probably not until next Saturday if I can even get it without pre-order.. but I'm not sure I can wait that long..

Or I can get a 40GB, but it's not backwards compatible (which doesn't really matter at the moment anyway since I no longer have any PS2 games)..

Is the 40 extra GB in the 80 gig one that much of a difference?

I have a 40GB and it does just fine. The differences between the two used to be, and still could be, 4 USB ports on the 80GB. The 40GB only has 2. The 80GB also has Compact Flash, SD, Memory Stick ports and SACD support. The 40GB has none of those features.

I have the 40 gig and like it just fine. The only game I have are Call of Duty 4, Guitar Hero 3, and Grand Theft Auto 4 so I can't really recommend any games to you.

What are the USB ports for? And are all those other things necessary?

Also, how much space do games take up on the HD on average? Is 40GB quickly used up?

The USB ports are used to charge controllers and hook up peripherals. So, on the 40GB you could only charge 2 controllers at once. The other stuff isn't necessary to me because I'm not using my PS3 to store pics, videos or music. Those other features just make it easier to import that stuff.

Most games, when installed, take up 1-2 GB. However, Devil May Cry 4 took up 5. Once I beat the game though, I uninstalled the game and kept my save file. Which is a nice feature to have. You can free up space and not lose your game save. In all honesty, I can't imagine needing more than 40GB unless you plan on using it for pics and music.

Awesome. I think I'll just get the 40 gig then.

Can you use regular USB drives to store game saves on?

Yup. I'd recommend backing your save files that way.

Do you know anything about refurbished systems?

I just checked on Gamestop.com, and a new 40GB system is $399.99. A refurbished is, I think $349.99.. that's the cost of a game!

If I can get it $50 cheaper, it'd be awesome, but does anyone know about those systems? Are they in good condition? I don't want to be fucked over..

I don't own a PS3, but sight unseen I bet the new Gran Turismo kicks all sorts of ass.

Gamestop offers a warranty for their refurbished systems.

Agreed. And the best looking game on the system.
