Why you should not buy a PS3

26 09 2009

Hello people, the, Why you should not buy a (insert game, console, or accessory here) series continues with the PS3.

This series is dedicated to showing the public the down sides of everything, because nothing is perfect! So here is why you should not buy a PS3

Playstation network: PSN has evolved to be a great service utilizing many features that are used to connect gamers to each other. However PSN is lacking many features that the competition has, such as Cross-Game Voice chat and Custom music in all games.  The friends list is also more limiting, providing much less information than it should. The customization of your profile is also limited to just Pre-made avatars.

Multi-Platform games: This is not so much of a problem as it was before, but it is still a noticeable issue. Multiplatform games on the Playstation 3 still do not meet the quality of multiplatform games on the Xbox 360 and the PC, suffering from weaker graphics, frame rate, and loading times. As it stands now, the difference is minimal, but still noticeable.

Backwards compatibility: Should you go out and buy a Playstation 3 right now, unless bought used, yours would not have Backwards compatibility. This is a major let down for Playstation 2 owners who plan on upgrading, being unable to play PS2 games on the PS3 forces you to have both consoles. This feature is in all other consoles, so it makes you wonder why it’s not in the PS3.

“It’s not cool to own one:” The PS3 has got a lot of hate in the gaming industry for some unknown reason. It gets so much hate simply for being an overly Bad Ass console for the media to handle. Its just not considered cool to own a PS3 in this day and age.

There you have it, why you should not buy an PS3. Come back later this week for the next part of the Why you should not buy series featuring a Gaming PC the PSP and DS.

Also be sure to check back for Who should buy a Wii/Xbox 360/PS3 later this week.

Note: This is not a hate article, it is simply based on opinion and recommendation. We are doing this for every console and every game, if you like the ideas of the PS3 then go and buy one, I never said you shouldn’t, only telling you what problems you will run into.

Work on your topic choices. Think more about writing and less about hits on your blog.

I do not think this is meant to be a serious article. I find it funny as a joke.
I will definitely check back on the other “do not buy” articles. Simply because I find it funny.
Do not take it so seriously.

one thing with the PSN is its dead slow.
every single time i try to download something it takes forever.
so for the sake of it i decided to settle it once and for all.
i downloaded both the WET and batman AA demo on the 360 than the ps3.
for both the 360 was done first, with wet finishing 20 minutes before than batman AA finishing a whopping 50 minutes before.
i have never downloaded big updates with my 360 (nothing over 1.5GB)
but i downloaded the uncharted 2 beta the other day and it took me 6 hours.
when i first got my 360 i downloaded the NXE update, the new update,the lost planet 2 demo, the ninja blade demo and that took 3 hours.
now im trying to download the MAG beta.
i say trying because its been going since thursday afternoon.
its been going for 3 days and ive only done 2.1GB out of the 2.66.
72 hours for 2.1GBs that has to be a world fucking record!
