I've been thinking about picking up a Ps3, perhaps one of the holiday bundles, now I know the PS4 is due next year, but I probably would'nt be picking up that system for a year or so after launch I know initial launches of Software for new system is slow and I want to see who has the momentum in the next gen, so is it worth paying $300 for the system now? Or would you guys suggest I pick up a used unit? I figure software deals on the system will pick up as well. Opinions?

It's too bad you missed out on the Black Friday bundles, I think they were $199 with both Infamous and the Uncharted collection or something to that effect. Personally I think now has never been a better time to get a PS3, the library is fully fleshed out and you can get some really great games( a few years old) for really cheap. Since you say you don't buy a console at launch anyway, why not?

Too many systems and games....not enough time or money!

Mainly Price, and the fact that most of the games don't utilize the sstem to its full potential.

If I go the New route would I be better off looking for a Slim vs a Superslim?

Well I have a slim and it works like a charm, I can't speak to the superslim....

I am going to agree with Dragon. I would pick one up. There are so many awesome excolusives plus some great looking games coming out, that you will be able to stay busy for a while. I am starting to get in to the PS3 more and more because I am enjoying the exclusives.

I think Toys R Us is doing the Black Friday bundle price right now.

If it's one thing I learned this time around, it's wait a few years to get into a console.

2 YLOD's, $1000 on consoles, and a very limited selection the first 18 months will have b waiting next time around (18-24 months) before I dive in.

Not going to be a (paying) beta tester again.

So sure, go for it. I have something like 1200 hours of games sitting on my coffee table, 1/2 exclusive to PS3. As long as you like a variety of genre's, there's plenty to keep you buys, and your investment sound.
