The console & gaming thread

Sun Nov 23, 2014 5:24 pm

There was a discussion in the spam thread before about consoles. If anyone could find it and put it in here that would be great.

I'm considering getting a console. Thinking of PS3 as I haven't gamed in 2 years or properly in 4 so I reckon there's loads of great games I've missed out on which I could get on the cheap.

One question why is there a 12gb ps3 and a 500gb one. Seems like quite a difference. Would the 12gb do if it's used solely for gaming.

What classics are there for it which are must plays.

I think you can play ps3 games on ps4 mate, and if that's the case, get the 4, since you'll still get the games on the cheap.

No, neither of the current gen consoles are backwards compatible with their predecessors.

In regards to 500gb vs 12gb, the games often have the option of installation to HDD for faster loading times, which iirc on PS3 would be around 3-6gb for the latest titles. The new consoles require that you install every game, a 20gb+ installation being standard for AAA titles.

It is a shame, but the nature of the new hardware is entirely different from previous gen consoles, so it would not have been possible.

Yeah fair enough. Do you still believe that a next gen console is the route to go rather than getting a ps3?

I hate buying old models knowing there's a newer version, that goes for anything I buy. If I can afford the newer version.

I think that the fact there's such a good back catalogue that I've missed it makes sense, especially financially.

No point getting the PS4 yet Peas, not for another year at least, especially if you've not gamed for a few years, the PS3 will be fine. If I got the PS4 all I'd be doing is playing PES15/GTA V/MGS and I can do that on my PS3.

Must play games:

MGS HD Collection
God Of War 3
The Last of Us
Uncharted 2/3
MGS 4
GTA V

Think that's it.

As for playing PS3 games on PS4, I think they'll be offering some sort of streaming service, so it may be possible in future but not now. It's fornicate appalling you can't play PS3 games on it, massively puts me off getting the 4 cos I always wanna play the MGS HD games and I would be selling the PS3 to fund the PS4.

It's not appalling, it's just not possible. To play PS3 games on a PS4 they'd have basically had to put a PS3 inside the PS4. The games just aren't compatible in any way, shape or form; the technology and thus the entire coding is vastly different.

Fair enough.

What are the main PS4 titles now?

Don't buy the 12 GB, it's completely pointless.

You will run out of space in no time. Every time you save your game/install updates/download demos etc. 12gb won't last five minutes.

It's old and you didn't need as much space back in the day.

Did the original only come with 12gb then?

Running out of space cause of save files and updates seems odd. Brings me back to the good old days of play station memory cards

Actually its fairly new. They brought it out because consoles without hard drives are cheaper, and it allowed them to advertise PlayStation 3 from £xxx.99. Microsoft had brought out a 4gb model earlier for the same reason.

Gran Turismo 5 - a flagship, mass market title - by the time you have installed the game and downloaded all the updates leaves you with no free space, because 12Gb is actually 9. Grand Theft Auto 5 wont even run on it.

The PS3 is effectively region free. In theory, publishers can region lock the games. In practice, only one ever did, Persona 4 Arena. DVD and blu ray is region locked, although blu rays largely are region free in practice.

Heh, I didn't know that, I'd assumed 12gb was the original. Wikipedia tells me that the original model was actually 60gb, so this new 12gb PS3 is shitter even than the one Sony released seven years ago.

They're basically selling something that you can't practically use without buying something else.

60GB was actually perfectly fine at launch. That's the machine I have. But that has a hard drive, the 12 is flash memory.

The 12gb is fine for those upgrading from an old console, or those planning to strip the hard drive out fora tb one. Or people wanting a blu ray player that can do nexflix and iPlayer. But thats niche cases.
