  • I just got a PS3 for Xmas, and I need some games . . .

    Now bear with me, I am not a big video game guy. I haven't played much beyond Madden, NCAA, and GTA in the past.

    Assassin's Creed looks pretty cool, and the game reviews seem great . . . is it the "must buy" that I am led to believe?

    What are some other games I need to consider?

      No, it's a fun game but gets repetitive. Great rental. The must buy is Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and Call of Duty 4

        I was reading up on this game today. Looked pretty cool to me.

        What are some good two player games?

          • electronic gaming monthly is the best magazine or any source period for game reviews... the best online ones are gamespot and ign, but beware, they are unusually harsh on PS3 so take that into account when your read their reviews.

              Well, today is my birthday, so I am gonna get Assassin's Creed from BestBuy for $38 . . . seems like a reasonable price, and I really don't like renting video games.

              • Ok I know this is the PS3 thread, but I'm looking into upgrading my gaming system. Have a PS2 right now. I don't want a Wii, I know that much. I'm either going to get a PS3 or Xbox 360? Honest opinion, what shoulder I get? Does Xbox 360 have GTA4 when it comes out?

                  I have the same exact dilemma. I'm leaning towards a PS3 b/c I'm more familiar and used to the controllers and such, and I don't want to buy new games for XBox360 and controllers and all that jazz, but if there's that big a difference between the 2, I may go with 360

                    Here's my interesting take on that problem . . .

                    4 months ago, after having owned PS1 and PS2, and no other gaming systems previously, I bought an XBox 360. I bought it because it was cheaper, and provided all of the games I wanted to play (including GTA4). After two months of relatively positive experience with the 360, it crapped out on me. I had bought the BestBuy extended warranty, and I got my full money back.

                    For Christmas, and using much of the money I got back from the 360, I got a PS3. Thus far, I am happy with it.

                    Much of what I didn't like about the 360 was my unfamiliarity with the console, after having owned playstations previously. PS3 has a better controller. 360 has a better console menu and setup. PS3 clearly has a better track record of not breaking.

                    I will say this, however, if you intend to play Madden this year, XBox 360 is night and day better graphics than PS3. The frame rate on the PS3 is half that of the 360.

                    Bottom Line: Go with the PS3 . . . if you learn anything from this post, its that the 360 is assured to break, stop working, or spontaneously combust at some point.

                        thank you Xio! the familiarity of the PS1 and PS2 are what is making me lean towards PS3.

                        oh and happy b-day. the stripper should be there around 9ish.

                          • I assume Guitar Hero III is on PS3. My girlfriend and sister are pressuring me to get it when I purchase my new system.
