I hate my PS3

Published Thursday 14 Aug 2008 5:03pm | 24
 

I arrived home late one night last month to find my flat had been broken into & my beloved 360 stolen, along with the TV among other things. This was all well & good I thought, as I wanted a PS3, the insurance company were a delight to deal with... No really they were (I still have nightmares) In the end everything was replaced, payed a little extra $$$ & had the 360 changed for a PS3.

Two weeks down the track & I'm regretting the decision, the warm fuzzy feeling I got when I turned on the 360 has been replaced with self loathing & hatred. (Disclaimer: The warm fuzzy feeling may have been due to the fact the 360 was overheating).

The PS3 has no games worth forking out for, okay maybe Resistance but Drakes Fortune got old quick & Heavenly Sword is to similar to God of War. Online has nothing on LIVE & the sixaxis controller is nothing but a gimic. Then there's the XMD which just rubs me the wrong way & the web browser is a waste of time. Maybe the PS3 takes itself to seriously, it doesn't know what it's should be a games console or a media center.

Sure the PS3 has potential but that's not why I bought it, we live in a world of instant gratification & potential is priceless worthless. I don't want to beat on the PS3 to much, Little Big Planet is just round the corner & Fat Princess looks like a right laugh, but I want me some Halo 3 & Fable 2 not to metion Too Human.

Its my first blog don't be too hard on me.

Seriously, didn't you even check to see if you liked the games on the console before deciding to go with it?

Six-axis is is good when implemented well. Internet browser is awesome IMO. Online is free. More powerful hardware. Less Overheating. 360 exclusives come out on PC. PSP function. Six-axis controllers lightweight, easy to use for the PC via packaged recharge cable.

Heavenly Sword is great. You have no taste. :P Jest aside, I think there are great games worth owning on all consoles, which is why I have all three. Then again, I also feel that I don't need to purchase hundreds of games to validate my investment in each one.

The PS3 makes an excellent Blu-Ray player, has Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Everybody's Golf, and Ridge Racer 7 -- and LittleBigPlanet is on the way.

The 360 has Halo 3, Mass Effect, Viva Pinata, Perfect Dark Zero, and Fable 2 on the way.

The Wii has Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, Wii Sports... Plus, it's just fun.

Just my 2c.

Your right about that. I have 3 consoles and PC .. PS3 only gets used as a blu ray player. Wii, 360 and PC get thrashed for games :)

I think the wii made a console with the user in mind. the 360 needed to update what they already had done and playstation is for the corporate gamer in my opinion. I play ps for the freedom online. I play xbox for the achievements and Nintendo to enjoy my friends and family. It's nice to hear different reasons for liking different consoles.

PS3 FTW!!!!

Of course this was written a long time ago, and since then a lot of good games have come out for the PS3 so your opinion may be different...I would try and keep the PS3 and just save for a 360...
