    I'm only on my second PS3, but if this one ever broke I'd pretty much be forced to buy a third. The though of missing all the great 2013 games, and the ones Im playing now, would make me sad.

    Just buy an extended warranty if you have such bad luck with PS3s. (Believe you can get one through the PS store, as long as the console is under a year old)

    I'm on my second and if it breaks I wouldn't get another until they were $99. No way would I have rebought a console 5 times over.

    You must have had the worst luck in the world to have to buy a 5th PS3. I have never heard of such bad luck with a PS3.

    If I were you, and I bought a product that kept breaking, I would no longer buy that product.

    4 PS3s?! Were they all fat models?
    Anyways, 2013 is looking to be a phenomenal year for PS3. It would be a shame to miss all those games

    The fact you have to ask this is a decent indicator to the proper answer. If you're not financially stable then it may be best to wait it out for a next-generation console, especially if you have another gaming device to hold you over. That's what I would do, but I'm also fairly poor.

    All the blockbuster PS3 games releasing in 2013 won't suddenly disappear in 2014, people are just buying PS2s now for a dirt cheap price and enjoying all those awesome games from 10 years ago. Nothing wrong with playing games long after they've released.

    If you can actually afford to keep breaking/buying consoles go for it!

    Personally I wouldn't bother buying another. Unless there is a game you absolutely can not live without I wouldn't.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Not to sound rude but, with your luck, I wouldn't want you near any video game consoles. I can't imagine going through so many units. >.>

    Honestly if you feel it's worth it buy another but I would feel scorned after that many. I was on my 3rd Xbox and decided enough was enough.

    Likewise. I get the feeling that people who go through so many consoles are due to excessive use.

    Not only that, what models have you owned? I would understand anything that is 120gb slim or before. To every other system, got to concur with Blacksite.

    Just like woman to keep breaking things
    Seriously if your gonna buy one then i would get the new ps3 model There cheaper. The time to get one would be now since Black friday is coming up.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Short answer? HELL NO! I wouldn't purchase anything that many times. Perhaps, Sony should extend the warranty to three years.
