I just got a PS3
I have been a PC gamer my whole life and I just got this 320slim PS3 mainly for the exclusives and the odd -console only- titles that may be intersting in the future
I am on the EU PSN,MR-ShiroGamer
if anyone wants to add me ,feel free
also post your PSN here along with any advice that you think might be useful for a new console adopter :D
Just got a PS3(35 posts)
Welcome to the DarkSide Shiro, enjoy your shinny new system.
Feel free to add me on PSN my GT is pracer.
I am mostly a Steam and XB LIVE gamer tho, but do tinker with my PS3 here and there.
I am on steam as well,click on my name
will add you :)
Mine is Blitzkrieg92 (I share the handle with my bro). Mostly play GT5 and BFBC2.
As for advice for a new owner... buy Uncharted 2... NOW. :D
Enjoy your new console mate.
I got Uncharted 1 with it ,its awesome
finished it last night -def gettin the next one
am playing RDR now and KZ2,and trying to get used to the whole FPS with a controller thing :/
You've made the right choice Shiro. 2011 is the place to be with a PS3. You won't find another year in gaming history that will match this one quality wise on consoles period.
My suggestion of games for you:
Metal Gear Solid 4 - Gotta pay tribute to the legendary Solid Snake!
Uncharted Series - Best TPS gaming series this gen by miles.
God of War collection + God of War 3 - Kratos....enough said.
Resistance Fall of Man Series - No need for Halo when you have these games.
Killzone 2 and 3 - Best graphics ever conceived on a console.
Little Big Planet 1 and 2 - Unlimited value/ a steal for $60.
Ractchet and Clank series - relive the greatest platform from last gen in HD
Gran Turismo 5 - ....Gran Turismo 5....GT5!...1000 CARS!...moving along..
Heavenly Sword - Goddess of War......again enough said.
Warhawk - Online multiplayer thats very addictive.
WipEout HD - 1080P 60FPS super sonic racing. What else do you need?
Siren: Blood Curse - Awesome graphics, scary as hell, you shit your pants :D
Heavy Rain: The best game in its genre and one of the best games you'll play.
SingStar - Let loose, funny as hell party game.
Buzz Quiz World - Another great party game for the entire family.
Demon Souls - Old school style RPG with new modern gameplay feel.
inFamous - Simply electrifying. A great game!
SOCOM Confrontations - Check it out if you're into military shooters
MAG - 256 players online fragfest.
Valkyria Chronicles - Very unique Tactical RPG with great art design.
Motorstorm series - Crazy off road racing. Very good love this series.
Mod Nation Racers - because Mario Kart is for 12 years and N64 is dead.
and last but not least PlayStation MOVE - which really gets rid of the need for any other console and makes the PS3 the total package.
There's even more exclusives coming next year with 2011 being the best year and time as a PS3 owner.
Calling All Cars - Awesome fun game. Rugby with cars. Trust me its fun.
Blast factor - Cool twin stick shooter with some neat sixaxis controls.
Flow - Very relaxing chill game. Easy and short. (Has trophies now too).
Flower - Best game to use sixaxis. Like flow but 10 million times better.
Crash Commando - Have kids? Here's their baby sitter. Fun game.
Echochrome - Exercise your brain. very cool game.
Fat Princess - Good
Hustle Kings - Very good
Danger Joe - Fucking great!
Pain - you'll never get all the trophies....I'm still trying :( but fun :)
PixelJunk racers - ok
PixelJunk Eden - may throw control in RAGE but will improve your gaming skills
PixelJunk Shooters - Very fun game. take your time and enjoy this one.
PixelJunk Monsters - prepare to only get two hours of sleep a day. "ADDICTIVE"
Shatter - PONG in 2010 on steriods
Cuboid - Another mind twister
Everday Shooter - Made by 1 guy Johnathan Mak. AWESOME! (Support this dude!)
Dead Nation - Sweet Zombie killing action thats addictive as shit.
Super Star Dust HD - Best twin stick shooter ever made. Must try in 3D dude!
and over 80 more awesome exclusives you only get on PSN.
If there's anything else you want to know about PS3 and its features like Remote Play, trophies, bluetooth headsets, and installing a larger HDD just send me a message or friends request to theevilaires.
Most of the PS3-games I like are in theevilaires list. Heavy Rain, Valkyria Chronicles, Uncharted 1 + 2, LBP and God of War 3 are the first games you should play, since you won't find anything like those on pc.
I'd post my ID, but it's useless, cause only my 360 is connected to teh internetz (lol xbox live).
Which games did you already buy?
/e: hm.. getting old, didn't see all the posts >_<
I hate to rain on tea's parade but I know for a fact Shatter isn't a PSN exclusive. Steam are using it in their treasure hunt promotion right now :p
^ console exclusive and steam can't match PlayStation quality "EVER". Find me an Uncharted equivalent.
UC 2 Deffo.
KZ 2 was meh for me but not a bad game in all fairness.
Infamous is very good also imo.
I also enjoyed R2 fall of man.
All in all the PS3 is a great console and whatever your gaming tastes it should cater to them.
@theevilaires, are you Kevin Butler? :P
guys ,before this turns into another TEA vs the world thread :D
lets keep it to the point
some of you still didnt post their IDS ,shame on you
and thx tea thats a long list of stuff that am def goin to check out ,it serves me right for coming late to the console market ,lol
one of the reasons I got it as I said is its exclusives
Hey Shiro, feel free to add me (PSN is Detale). I started replaying U2 again this afternoon, still brilliant. TEA's list is pretty comprehensive, can't really see anything he's missed. I've been told I'm not allowed to buy any more games before Christmas by the missus, so will have to wait until next week for some fresh games...
@Shiro, TEA brings in an excellent list of exclusives, but he has missed a few gems like the Sly Collection & 3D Dot Heroes, but 2011 is a great year for us PlayStation owners, the Playsation has the habbit of bringing out more & better exclusives every year until they're close to announce the new console.
But just look at next year & tell me that it's not worth owning the PS3 with all these games coming:
-The Last Guardian
-Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
-Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
I am also a 360 owner but the only game i'm likely to get on it next year is Gears, the only other upcoming game that I have interest in that's exclusive to the 360 is Codename: Kingdoms only because the brilliant Crytek is behind it.
Killzone 2 graphics are fucking awful. "Best graphics on a console?" You're fucking joking me. Plus the game itself isn't very good. And KillZone 3 isn't even out yet so we don't know how good that's going to be, either.
I'd get GT5 (although it's not all that, it tears, has framerate issues and shoddy cars, it's still the most comprehensive first-party racer around), Uncharted (great fun, great v.o.), WipEout HD ('nuff said), Demon's Souls (not my bag, but it's very unique), Heavy Rain (looks awesome) and SuperStardust HD (excellent arcade-style schmup).
All the rest are unfortunately "good" at best. The above titles are outstanding, however.
Good time to buy a PS3, you can pick up some of the older exclusives that didn't sell too well for nothing.
'onlineatron' is my tag.
I won't be on for a while though as my PS3 broke a few weeks back, will be buying a new one post-new years.
my psn is Steiner84. might add some of u guys as well if u dont mind / feel free to add me, but pls just leave a comment "vg247 [username]" if its not the same as here.
I bought my PS3 back in February and haven't really played it. I completed LBP, MGS4, Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2. Are the Resistance games any good? I'm considering getting the first because it's cheap and I think I'll get inFAMOUS too
Nothing wrong with Resitance or infamous. Solid games. I wouldn't play Resitance online tho, the MP was weak, imo. On PS3 Warhawk, Mag, CoD or BFBC2 all sport stronger Online MP, again - imo.
Are there any other PS3 exclusives I have overlooked? These are the ones I had/have:
-Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
-Metal Gear Solid 4
-Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time
-God of War 3
A few PSN games maybe. If your into that type of thing. But I am not sure they are all exclusive or not.
I would go buy Fat Princess, thats exclusive.
Some really well done Pinball tables. Castle Crashers and a handfull of other games that are multiplatform are alos worth owning.
Also GT5, Mod Nation Racer, and Demon Soul.
From the PSN store I would recommend:
Pixel Junk Shooter
And get Demon's Souls. Fantastic game.
PS: Also, Nier. (Not exclusive, but great)
TEA's list is basically the completeness yo. All the games he has mentioned are bombdiggidy lol
So ill just add my PSN to the list.: SpIdErLaW.
@ Mike. Fuck you hater. Killzone 2 IS the best graphics on consoles you blind shit. You just cant see straight with your crooked eyes. And the game plays amazingly. You just arent good at games so you blame the game itself.
If you say the rest of the list is just "good" then you either have horrible taste or are a fake ass gamer.
God of War 3 = Amazing!
Killzone 2 = Fucking Amazing!
Uncharted 2 = Holy shit this game is absolutely brilliant
Uncharted 1 = Great, decent
GT5 = Damn Glorious (and the issue you mentioned are non-existent you lying ass. Load times are the only problem. Especially lying about framerate issue, there arent any you dummy.)
inFamous = Starts off slow but turns into an absolute masterpiece as soon as you hit the second island.
Heavy Rain = The most unique and exciting experience available
PS Move = Shits all over the Wii
Mod Nation Racers = Absolutely Brilliant
Flower = SOB this game is addictive
@Geki....argueably....but yea, i agree UC2 is king of console graphics
Uncharted 2 has the best graphics on console. KZ2 is a close second though.
I really must be missing something on the KZ2 thing.
I mean TEA can confirm I completed it but I just found it OK at best and boring at worst.
It was actually my most anticipated game on getting the PS3 especially having read the reviews.
Could have and should have been much much better imho.
You can call me a troll if you want but it is my honest opinion.
I enjoyed R2 a lot more.
How dare you to not praise platform exclusive X like it was the best thing since whipped cream?
See, Reask, thats a perfect arguement. It just depends on how you play the game.
Mike didnt give it credit where its due. You did, but stated how the game felt for you and thats the way to go about it.
I didnt like Resistance 2 at all for example. I thought Fall of Man was excellent. You, Reask, Love Halo Reach and i think its just OKAY at best. I guess i prefer the heavier, more realistic feel of KZ2 over the light and sluggish feeling of Halo and Resistance.
To me, what made KZ2 so great was how immersed i felt with it.
Nagh reask is right, KZ2 is way over rated.
But the samething could be said for a lot of games. And often it is for games that are exclusive. If we are tossing around over rated exclusive I'd add both Halo and Uncharted. But the list for over rated is a long long long one and would of course vary from gamer to gamer.
i also prefer the heavier killzone feel over the resistance and supposed halo feel (havent played any of the later).
wouldnt call resistance a bad game, far from it, but ive played killzone2 right after r2 (actualy kz2 stopped me from finishing r2) and found mysefl massively immersed by the games grafics, sound, atmosphere and last but not least the actualy feeling of movement and gunplay. Far more then resistance. again, doesnt mean r2 feels bad, but kz is the shit i realy like, especialy for the sp! in general a more run and gun approach mp-wise aint bad at all.
