    Well, I am considering buying a PS3 since they dropped in price and are half way reasonable. What are the best games for it? I am talking about platform exclusive games as I have a 360 already. What do yall recommend to get with it?

    Killzone 2, MGS4, Motor Storm is good fun, Socom is good (since they fixed the lag on the servers),Resistance 1 and 2 are must owns,Little Big Planet is fun with friends, Uncharted is good, Demon Souls is suppose to be great but doesn't come out in the U.S until october but you can Pre Order it from play asia (i plan on it)

    Honestly dude, no point. The 8800GT runs everything just fine. Until they start coming out with the games that will require more power, I am good.

    The games i would recommend are

    Socom: Confrontation
    Grand Turismo 5

    and also do yourself a favor and get a wired mic instead of a BT headset, it makes a big difference while gaming

    Well considering the majority of games these days are multiplatform, theres not a whole lot of exclusives.

    For PS3 only:

    God of War III

    Heavy Rain

    Uncharted II:Among Thieves

    Motorstorm

    Killzone II

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

    Infamous

    Mag

    Little Big Planet/ Little Big Planet 2

    Resistance 1 and 2

    Gran Turismo 5

    Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time.


    Thats pretty much it.

    Stop trolling answers that mean nothing to the OP...stay on subject or please, just don't answer. :slap:





    To the OP: The best game, in my view, is GTA IV....purely the amount of time you can play this game makes it such good value for money; aside from the fact its pretty damn hardcore if your into that type of game like I am.


    Here are some good games to get you started:

    Fight Knight Round 3 + 4
    NFS: Undercover
    Resident Evil 5
    Resistance 1 + 2
    Moto GP
    Killzone 2

    Hope that is a more useful reply than "get a new card". :shadedshu :toast:

    He says he wants exclusives. I already posted all there is in that department, there really isn't many.

    He has a 360 already.

    Not too many exclusive games as you've already said, but he may wish to invest in other games for the PS3 so posting some choices isn't bad. :)

    I have a lot of games for it I don't play anymore. I always liked LBP the best, the story is kinda short but you can go back through and collect stuff, playing it with other people IRL and online is so much fun.

    With my consoles, I never get THAT many games. I usually run with 5 or 6 of the best exclusive games and the best sports games. Yall have provided an excellent list, thanks for the advice.

    i never even really liked killzone and resistance pretty average games only hyped up because they are Playstation exclusives

    to me tho you have a xbox 360 so i dont see anything different that much

    oh and dont bother with uncharted PS3 fanboys say its great but its not that good its like a fake tomb raider but shitter well it was for me anyway

    Has anyone played Wipeout HD for the PS3!

    Its THE best PS3 Exclusive game to own. Its not upscaled, its full 1080p and the art behind that game is fantastic. Its made me soooo happy to own a PS3. And I have Kill Zone 2, SOCOM, LBP and more titles but that game has taken up most of my time.

    If you haven't picked up Batman yet for your 360, it has some extra material on the PS3 version. I haven't played the demo myself yet, but I hear it's a ton of fun.

    Also like said in the 2 above posts, Infamous is great and Heavenly Sword was a release title (or very close to release I can't remember) but it's a very fun game.

    Man, I remember the Prodigy track on the original WipeOut. That game and Twisted Metal 2 was the reasons why I got the original PlayStation. WipeOut HD looks AWESOME!
    I might pick up a PS3 instead of a new graphics card...

    It been said a few times but ill type it again Little Big Planet great platformer and Motor Storm Pacific Rift.

    And if you got a decent lcd or plasma then pick up some blueray titles as its a decent player of them.

    Got to agree, Little Big Planet is a ton of fun, I don't have Pacific Rift, but I have the original Motor Storm, and there isn't anything to match it, Its just amazing to crash and be able to name the parts flying off your car 1 at a time.

    When I had a PS3 I really enjoyed Resistance & Uncharted. Resistance 2 looks very good and Uncharted 2 looks promising ;)

    I would like to have a go on Killzone 2 because Ive heard good things about it and I think my kids would love Little Big Planet lol :D
