    Kaz, I'm sorry

    Alright guys, just a little light reading for ya'll. I have had a PS3 since launch, I got a slim PS3 when they released. Anyway I gave my parents the ps3 for Netflix, blu ray and DVDs. I bought a WiiU (Blasphemy I hear you say) I thought I was happy, I tried to like it. But Kaz I'll never doubt you ever again, I traded it in and got a super slim (blue) PS3. Never been happier, back with my buddies online, looking forward to The Last of Us and just generally have a new lease of life with gaming. I was suffering with gaming fatigue and was in a slump.

    So just wondering if any of you guys have tried a new system and come back to PS3? Or if anyone has taken a big break from gaming and feel like the early days of a console again, all filled with wonder and good times?

    also just want to point out, I was always getting a PS4 on launch, can't wait for the epic ness!

    I was originally with Sega back in the day, then I switched to the PS1. I then went back briefly to Sega with the Dreamcast until they ****ed up. Then I got the PS2 and I've been a Sony exclusive player ever since. I'll never buy a Microsoft console but I do see myself maybe getting a Nintendo secondary console someday cause I've always wanted to play Zelda.
    Trophy-licious!

    I'm more interested in Nintendo handheld than console. I did the same, I skipped PS2 for a little while, had Dreamcast after the PS1. Never owned a Nintendo console or MS.

    I know the excitement isn't there yet although I'm happy I own a Wii U because the console is just remarkable. This is going to be Nintendo experiencing a high-tech machine for the first time. I love the gamepad. I expect by E3 for Nintendo to do some home cooking.

    As for Sony, never in doubt. I didn't like the hardware failure with the phats although obviously Sony is top notch with the games and technological features console wise.

    I've had Nintendo handhelds since the gameboy... A few years ago i got a 360 and recently got an original Xbox... They just aren't the same. The original Xbox has much better exclusives than the 360 and they both pale in comparison to play station exclusives. I barely have a reason to turn on my 360 aside from the odd multiplatform game or exclusive. Where as my ps3 I've had since day 1 (later upgraded to a slim) gets used almost every day

    Sounds like me haha. I'm just currently rolling on BO2 and Fifa 13 but I'm going to start my GTA4 and episodes game. Got FarCry3 and Resi 6. FarCry I want to try the coop a lot (if anyone wants to play PSN is Anderlation, same for resi6 coop) Love Resident Evil 6. I know it got a big load of flak but I thoroughly enjoyed it and recopped a copy to play it more

    That would be scary because seeing how Ballmer is...I'd probably consider go MS too but I'd be reactive and will keep Nintendo in mind.

    If WiiU is anything to go by, 3rd party support would suck. I love Mario and Ninty franchises but not enough I'd only play them. I have my 3DSXL for that. MS would be scary on their own with all the support. I can't see PS4 failing with what seems like every developer praising it. Plus all the support its drumming up

    Even then I'd stay away from them. Just don't like their business model. If Sony would be no more I'd rather switch to PC gaming.

    Nope never done that lol, I have PS as my main gaming system and Nintendo as secondary but only for their first party. Never owned a MS console and probably never will because I have no interest in the games and don't like MS. If Sony went out of the market I'd switch to PC/Steam. But I've never switched consoles, just owned multiple consoles.

    I have never abandoned the PS3 to the extent that The Anderlation has, but I do give gaming a break every now and then.
    I enjoy gaming but sometimes I over indulge. The old idiom, "too much of a good thing," definitely applies to games as much as anything else.
    When gaming over takes other aspect of my life and I notice it, I tend to take a step back from games.
    I always go back though. Taking a break from games has me going back with a greater passion. Similar to how Ander returned to the PS3 with greater enjoyment.

    If I were to move to another platform, I'd go to PC; free online gaming, best quality/performance of 3rd party games and mods outweigh the reasons to buy another console.

    I'll be honest. I was a launch day consumer for both the PlayStation and PlayStation 2, but for PlayStation 3, I didn't get one until this February. I know, . The reason I didn't get one at launch like I did it's predecessors is because of the $599 price tag. It slowly dropped, but I really wanted to make the move from PS2 to what was the current generation, and so I bought an Xbox 360. Blashphemy you say? Eh, I'm not entirely sure. I had a few great years on the 360, having played Halo 3 and some other big titles. But in the last few years, Microsoft slowly became more about entertainment and less about games. It made me sad and brought me back to the good old days. I began yearning for the exclusive titles that only Sony can deliver. Not to mention I had never gotten to play Uncharted, Resistance, LittleBigPlanet and the like. So, I got my PS3 this February. Best decision I ever made. I have officially been converted back to the light side, lol.

    I originally started out with Genesis, then switched over to PlayStation. I also have a Xbox and a 360 and while I enjoy playing off of them, I always would like to come back to my PS3.

    I was gonna get a 360 instead of a PS3 at first too but I knew that eventually Sony would release a **** ton of games like they always do so got a PS3 a year later (one of the last 60GB systems). Kinda glad at this point seeing how the 360 turned out in terms of games I'd like to play in which there is none that I can't get on PS3 or PC.

    For me, I started with NES, sega genesis, and PS1. Since PS1 came out and I loved it and kept playing on that console. The playstation series got me a lot and I do love until now my PS1, PS2, and PS3. Even though I bought the useless Xbox 360 but after some time I told my mom you can throw it in garbage as I hate it alot. I still have the old consoles PS1, Sega Genesis, and SNES. I want to get a Dreamcast.

    It took me 4 years to get a Xbox that was I mind you broken and took another 3 months to send in to fix. When I first played the Xbox I felt like I was cheating on Sony. I just feel home with Sony's console and yes I am getting a ps4 at launch
