Getting a PS3; need purchasing advice
Johnny ChopsockyScootaloo! We have to cook!Grillin' HaysenburgersRegistered Userregular
Alright, it's tax refund season and I want to buy a PS3 to keep my 360 company. Looking through the ads, I've seen the slim PS3 for the new price and some used older models at Gamestop ($229 for a 40gig, $249 for an 80gig non-BC and $279 for an 80gig BC). While a new slim one would be dandy, I have to take both the cost of the system and the games I'd like to purchase along with it into account (cheaper system = more games I can buy etc etc).
Here's my questions: is the slim version worth forking over the extra cash compared to the refurbished ones? Are any of the older models superior/inferior to the other older models? Finally, what games would you recommend the most (already beaten Infamous and MGS4 on a friend's system)?
