Hello sinners of the PS3 forums,
Been a while since I posted, and I have always wondered this question. I have always wanted to own a Playstation though I'm an xbox fanboy at heart (I own the 360 and the one) but I never was against buying a PS3. Never owned one because of the price, friends being on xbox, and unaware of the exclusives for this system. So now with the obvious drops in price, do you guys think it would be worth it to pick up a used playstation 3 from a friend or seller online? Would it cost a lot of money to buy a jailbroken one and mod? Lemme know! Thanks!

I think it's worth it. Will all the games PS3 has to offer, not to mention the jailbreaking scene becoming more easy with a web hack now, you'd be silly to not give it a whirl.

ps3 is good for exclusives and free multiplayer. But some of multiplats on ps3 are a bit lacking in graphics and performance.

You would be amazed how good GT6 looks on ps3, even gt sport don't have real time lighting system.

It is worth it if you like modding and playing older games. I sold my ps4 to get my ps3 so I can have fun modding, play old OG games, and not have to worry when my PS Plus is over.

I bought my PS3 just to play Demon’s Souls. There’s a bunch of other exclusives I plan on picking up at some point as well.

Hey wait so it's like you sold your cadillac to buy a pinto?

OP: it all depends on what you are wanting out of it. If you wish to mod with it then its not a bad thing to buy one.
If you are looking for a new way of gaming then best bet would be to purchase a ps4...(but you state you have an xbox one so really no need)
These older consoles will soon be obsolete and very few will be online with them at all. If I was you I would wait a bit and save some money since it is likely the new consoles from microsoft will be hitting the shelves around christmas time.
I tend to leave the old for the new as I typically play online. I still own a ps3 and a 360 but they just sit on a shelf. If you pay any more than 20 bucks you overpaid.
If you are looking for something to play different games on then save a bit more money and get a ps4. At least it is current.

With jailbreaked ps3 you allow to play ps1/2/psp games. So its 4 consoles in one. Its crazy easy to jailbreak. I was have modded 360 for 10 years, and bought ps3 month ago For 45 euro. Absolutely love ps3 now, have complete immediately mgs4, connect to psn, enjoy again last of us mp, and yeee, its a lot of fun.

Do it. They're cheap. Even if you get one with a broken DVD drive that is an inexpensive and easy fix. I think all in mine cost ~$30 or something. Worth it!

I think that it is worth buying a PS3 in 2021 because there are also great games on that platform. If you have not played the games from that generation you can buy a PS3 or an Xbox 360. Also, you can buy it if you are a collection and want to have all the consoles from Sony. I bought last month a PS3 Slim on a site at a very good price. I bought them because I want to have a Play Station for every generation. The only PS that I don't have is the PS5. Now I am waiting for the stock to appear and to buy one. I hope I will have the chance to buy one soon
