Now I know that you're coming into this thread thinking "WTF is this guy talking about?" First off I'm not basing this PS3. I think its a great console and I can't wait to get my hands on one next week. However, recently my anticipation for the console has decreased, mainly due to the many delays of launch titles. At first, my launch title window was Madden 07, Oblivion, and THP8. Oblivion is now delayed til probably Feb/March 07. THP8 is a good game, but by reading reviews, it is a pretty average game. No fully player customization like in past games and no online mode. So that leaves me with just Madden 07 as my main launch title. NFSC is just a carbon copy of the PS2 version. Ridge Racer is too arcady for me, I rather have F1 Racing and that isn't out til probably March 07. I'll probably end up getting Resistance to fill in one of the missing gaps. Hell, even one of the Blu-Ray movies I was planning on getting at launch, RoboCop, is now delayed til some deal is done to port it over the BD-DVD.
But what I'm trying to say is, at first I couldn't wait to get my hands on a PS3. I mean I still can't wait, but it isn't with that same level of excitment as it was before. I didn't get the 360 at launch cause there weren't enough good games, atleast for me. Right now there really isn't enough good games for the PS3 but I'm still getting one. Why? Because I know that if I don't get one at launch, I probably won't have another chance of getting one til around Feb or possibly March 07. So it is either now or never. So even though there really isn't any PS3 games at launch that appeals to me, I'm still getting a PS3 only because its a PS3 and it will be in high demand. So I might as well just stick it out and get one next week. So when the Oblivions, the F1 Racings and so on star to emerge, I'll already have my PS3 opposed to trying to wait in line for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th shipments.
Anyone else in the same situation as I am?

Nope, not me.. Madden and NBA 2k7 will hold me over untill MLB: The Show, in march, and that should hold me over to GTA:IV in October.
I'm nowhere near the same situation as you, but I get what you're saying. Honestly, I wouldn't have any problem with just the PS3 console itself as well. It can browse the web, play music, etc. And I'm sure you'd find a way to make use of the PS Network and Playstation Store during the wait for those games
Yep, or you can just sit there and stare in awe of its awesomness. lol would kill a few hours just drooling near it, not on it.
Lol i have to wate till march 07 just to get the console, but by the lookes of it by then quite a few games will have come out so no loss but really one of the main reasons i want a PS3 is cause my PS2 is dying and i cant play my fave games any more. so even with out next gen games PS3 will be usfull to me also internet on my console is just to sweet to ignore and there will probably be more updated in the future with the firemware
Why not just wait and play some PS2 (FFXII, Bully, Guitar Hero 2, God of War 2, etc...) so someone who really wants a PS3 now can get their hands on it? Not much of a point in getting a launch system that you're not going to be interested in until March (Lair, Motorstorm?) when, by then PS3's will be debugged and should easily be on shelves.
Of course, I'd probably do the same thing in your position. It just looks so pretty...

"Studios come and go, but good games last forever"
i think i get where your coming from but you confused me a lil
you say your getting a ps3 because its a ps3 and not because of the games.
then you say you didnt get a 360 because it doesnt have good games. :S
you could have got a 360 on day one and waited for gears of war or dead rising (like you said you are with the ps3)
but hey I'm just sayingIf It Ain't Broke, I'll Fix It Till It Is.

This is funny I posted pretty much a carbon copy of this post in the Canada pre order section. I have a strong feeling I will get me PS3 next Friday and it will stay boxed up for the next week while I finish off Gears Of War. There is nothing on the PS3 that can touch it so why quit playing it just because there is a new kid on the block. I really hope resistance is atleast half as good honestly, then I will be a happy camper.
to tell the truth I dont care if it didnt have no games right now I still want it and when I get it I might not buy a game the first week I want it for Blu-ray and Linux and to watch my videos and pictures from my bed on my big tv
So, you are getting a PS3 becasue it's a PS3 and in high demand, even though it doesn't have any games you want to play? Surely the Xbox 360 has some games you like now after almost a year on the shelves?Phat boy gone slim!
Haha! Well bro, as long as you decide to buy a PS3, I'm good either way.
That's just me though.
I'm doing the same things as you just because I don't any extra $ for games and extra accessories. Maybe I can come up with some more moolah before launch.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] My photography site: Here !- New pictures just added!

FAREWELL TO THE GREAT MICHAEL SCHUMACHER!
