I ask because the last console I owned was a Sega Megadrive (Genesis!), since then I’ve done my games playing on PC.
However several games released or soon to be released on Playstation 3 have caught my eye and I recently purchased a snazzy new 40" HD TV. Couple of questions
Is there a new super-console on the horizon I should hold off for?
Is the Blu-Ray player in the Playstation 3 decent enough for watching movies?
Of the multiple of different ‘varieties’ of Playstation 3 on offer what should I go for?
What are the ‘must-have’ games, MGS4, Gran Turismo 5 and Modern Warfare 2, for three I assume?
The main reason I haven’t owned a console for a long time though is that I find the PC mouse/keyboard combination infinitely superior than a joypad for playing most games…FPS shooters for definite (although to be fair I have a rather unorthodox control system for those games were I use the left mouse button to shoot, right mouse button to move forward and keys for everything else). Are modern controllers any more up to the job?
Edited to add that at least back in the day console games were noticably more simplistic than PC games of the same period, is that still the case?
Any advice greatly appreciated!
