    Will you sell your ps3 to buy a ps4?

    I'm curious, how many of you guys are going to sell your ps3s and all your games to upgrade to a ps4? I'm not sure if should or not. On one side, I'm only 16, I don't have a job, so the only way to save up for a ps4 (plus games) is through birthday and christmas money and I'm not sure I can wait that long. Also, once I do get my ps4, I'm not too sure If I'll really be playing my ps3 anymore....I made the mistake of keeping my ps2 instead of selling it (I never use it, ever). It just sits there and takes up loads of space in my room. Plus, I have, (I'm sure guys do too) a bunch of games I don't even play right now. And on the other hand, I'm not sure I can stand to see all my games go away....plus even after selling it I'd still need $200 extra...(unless I sell my games separately). Also, PS + will be required in order to play ps4 online, and that works for ps3 as well, which means I might miss out on some good deals, even free ps3 games....but who knows, maybe after getting the ps4 I won't be interested in even going back to the ps3 at all and I could really use the money to buy the ps4...I'm also not sure I actually want to go through all the trouble of selling it either.... I can't make up my mind!.....

    Let me know what you guys think

    Here's everything above in a pro/con list

    SELL PS3 TO BUY PS4

    PROS
    • Can't wait and need the money
    • Might not want to play ps3 anymore
    • I have old games I don't play to begin with
    • Ps3 would take up too much space


    CONS
    • Don't know if I could watch my games go
    • Might not be enough to buy ps4
    • PS + works for ps3 too and I'd miss out on games
    • Too much work

    The longer the PS4 is out, the cheaper PS3 games get. (Hopefully).
    So it'll be a no from me.

    Too big of a backlog on games I want to play. Plus with ps+ there's gonna be even more freebies that come out ill want to try out so ill hold onto mine for at least the next 3 or 4 years. Besides it'll be nice getting freebies for. 3 consoles every month.

    I'll be keeping mine, but I'll be moving it to another room to use it as a blu-ray/netflix/GTA5 player in another room.

    I wont be selling my PS3.

    There are still a few years left of gaming to do on it.

    Once more into the fray.

    Never!! I have a massive collection on my shelf, what will happen to those if I sell it?!

    I want to sell my Xbox 360 to lessen the burden a bit but that damn Fable HD prevented me from doing so..

    Guess I'm the only one. lol I always trade in my old systems towards the new. Once I move onto a new gen I never look back. Already sold my 360 and the games I had for it towards the PS4. Havent missed that console at all.

    I mean I could definitely use the money to help me buy more games, but no need. Plus I'd rather keep my PS3 for media purposes.

    It's not that I need the money, but I don't think I'll be playing PS3 games when I get the PS4. So I am not keeping it.

    Keeping my PS3 just in case Sony can't keep up on the promises of certain things, and plus backlog of games, and I've invested too much time and money into PS3 Heck about to go out and buy Tekken Tag 2 and Assassin's Creed Trilogy today lol.

    Nope. Not with GTA V, GT6, and, Beyond Two Souls on the horizon. GTA, for example, is one of those games that I log a lot of time into. I'll be playing GTA V well into 2014.

    No, ps3 will mainly serve as my GTA V machine. I honestly don't think we'll get a port to ps4 but rather a brand new GTA game for next gen.

    As soon as DLC for The Last Of Us has ended then yes, i'll sell it. But there's so much memories i've had with it. Well, 2 anyways. 7/8 years playing this is intense. So many fun times,it'll be a shame to sell it off so early.
