    I think if she is a casual gamer and just want to enjoy playing games buying a ps3 for her is a good decision. If she is very hardcore and likes smooth fps and good graphics, you should wait and buy her the PS4. However nobody knows when the PS4 gets released.

    Even IF the next Playstation comes out say late next year; it still wouldn't be too late. I highly doubt someone like that would be an early adopter anyway (seeing as they don't have a PS3 yet).

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    ^Good point. Another thing to note is that if you actually do wait to get a PS4, to add a point to admartian's post, she would need to wait a long time for the good games to arrive.

    We know it happens every generation, we know it will happen next generation. All the top devs wait a little while to make the best stuff. Unless it's a straight up port...in which case, why need a next-gen console for a port?

    It is not too late, no. The PS3 is only half way through it's lifecycle. It is still going to be supported for at least another 5 years.

    I know that might sound crazy but isn't the next consoles coming soon? I could always wait and make it a present for a future year when the next PS comes out. Or should I just go and buy one now for her?

    I'm not sure what to do lol
    I would go with the PS3. It has some good exclusives, it plays multi platform games and lots of media support (Movies, Music). There are SO many games out, now that is is 5 years old. It is the best time to buy. If you wait, you will spend more on the next console AND have about 50 games to choose from vs. thousands you have now to choose from.

    It's still good to buy a PS2 so I don't see how it's late to buy a PS3
    if I am in the PS3 or 360 section I will NOT post about the competitor just to please people, if you want to know what I think about the competitor link me to a thread in the appropriate section

    always remember, when Ps4 comes out, wait a year or two and there will be a slimmer, more efficient cheaper version. that's what i'm doing this next time. been screwed every time so far it seems


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    I'm probably gonna wait too. I think I can live with the PS3, Vita and Move for the next few years. However, it depends on the launch line up bwahaha.

    If you should also get a Vita, then having a PS3 now is even better. There are so many advantages and possibilities with this combo. I just found out yesterday that contrary to what I'd read here, the Vita can use the PS3 media center app to convert .mkvs on my laptop into mp4 and stream it through the PS3 to my Vita anywhere with Wifi. The remote play aspect of the handheld is a very interesting development. Sony have said that the PS3 will last a "minimum" of 10 years and that the Vita is a 5-10 year product so we are just at the beginning of the marriage of PS3/Vita. Running right along with these initiatives is the drive of 3D and Move into games, a long with the general onslaught of exclusive titles, not to mention Sony's apparent drive for free to play business modeled MMO games (ala DCUO, Dust 514) and the upcoming Sony Entertainment Network plan which looks to offer access to all of Sony's movies, music, games etc via 1 SEN account on your PS3 and Vita. It an awesome gaming ecosystem to invest in imo.

    I agree for the majority of post's, I think now is a better time than ever to purchase a new ps3. You will get your money's worth and then some.
