    PS3, PS Vita & PS4 are one digital echo system man!!

    PS plus one price for all three systems you'd be crazy to sell your PS3 it's worth nearly nothing so you could expect to get maybe $70 or less for it and maybe 3-4 dollars per game maybe $10 for your controllers so it'd be an absolute waste of money trading it in its worth more keeping it as its priceless.

    By the time PS4 comes out ill still be playing PS3 games I've got like 17 games I still haven't played yet! And Sony keeps giving me free games on PS plus so they're not helping me lol

    Lol I remember some guy at my local EB games traded in 44 Xbox 360 games, a console , 2 controllers, a kinect and 20 PS3 games for a Xbox one which only just pays for the console, no games no accessories lol what a ninny! He's now got nothing to play and the bad habit cycle begins all over again.

    My PS3 is dear to me I won't be selling it ever I did that with my PS ONE games and PS2 games and I regret it !

    Nope, not selling ps3.
    Will most likely sell my launch X360 and games, as I haven't booted it for few months. (not for the money, but for space it takes.)

    I already regret getting rid of my old consoles from years ago so I will no longer be ditching any consoles ever! I am slowly rebuilding my collection back up, but I still wish I had my original consoles which I kept in mint condition...

    I plan on keeping mine for many reasons.

    Plenty of games still coming on PS+ IGC
    The PS3 Used Games should be moving to the $5-10 bins in GS. I'll pay that much for a number of games I've never played. Think of it this way, people pay more for PSN games that aren't as good.
    We occasionally play Rockband and Guitar Hero and I have no intention of buying newer versions of the game even if they equipment works.
    It makes a pretty decent BluRay player if I want to move it to one of my other TVs.
    I may hook it up to the TV in my bedroom just to see how pissed off my wife would get.

    Plenty of other reasons not to sell it, not to mention that it's worth more to me than what I would get for it.

    Probably not. I can't see myself parting with my PS3 for awhile. There's still so many good games to play.

    Hey dude, I am totally in the same situation as you. I'm in highschool, with no job, and I currently have $100 down on my PS4, which came from a bunch of PS3 games. Right now Gamestop is having a deal where you can get about $150 for a PS3, and with the remainder of games/controllers I can pretty much pay off the majority if not the whole thing if I turn everything in. I really don't have a backlog (I've played pretty much everything) and the only two games I'll be missing out on are GTAV and Beyond, but that's something I'm willing to sacrifice instead of trying to come up with $300 (more like $400 still with games). Plus I could always play them at a friends and borrow my cousins PS3 for Beyond.

    While it may suck not having it anymore. I still have my VITA and a ton of games on that that I haven't gotten to touch yet (Persona, Soul Sacrifice, Dragons Crown, Killzone) and with school starting up and sports, I figure the VITA will go hand in hand with my schedule and time constraints. So ultimately I will because while waiting for GTAV and Beyond to hopefully come through with Gakai, the lure of them is not enough to pass up on $300 free bucks. Because in my situation, coming up with that money is not easy. Plus any money I get from then on can go into the games so instead of getting the PS4 with just one game, I can get it with 3-4 so games. So for me, and maybe the same for you, the PROS outweigh the CONS. Sometimes you just gotta take sacrifices. In this case it's worth it.

    I understand what you're saying but you made one big mistake. This 300 dollars you might get for your ps3 and games, controllers, etc. isn't FREE bucks. That $#@! was paid for at some time or another. Something to think about.

    Just finished my first survivor run. In my opinion it is even better on survivor. The tension is so much higher, very few supplies, no batman mode. It is amazing!

    Yeah I know what you mean, but still it's $300 on top of whatever else I get before launch. It's totally not easy to do, but in 3 months when I have it, it won't bother me. Since I don't really have a steady income, it's either go big, live with just a VITA for a few months, but I can move into next gen. Or keep it, and play all the games coming out for PS3. I'm sure I'll play the likes of GTA V and Beyond and Ratchet: Nexus eventually. But I'm willing to wait to play them at a friends, or however Gaikai turns out. It may not make sense to you guys, but for a teenager, it does.
