I can get it for $5 (CAD). Never played it. Looking it up online the port looks dreadful. I'm no frame rate snob.. but 18 FPS dips? lol

The articles and vids are pretty old (launch) though.. has it had any patches that make it any better since then?

The general rule is PS3 version of [game name] sucks compared to 360... Like 99% of the time.

Final Fantasy XIII is the exception to this rule but that game is classed by the UN as a war crime and shouldn't be played under any circumstances anyway.

:lol: I did truly lol at this, but I do really like XIII. It's a damn sight better than VII, VIII or X.


Wasn't Bayonetta supposed to be coming out on Xbone and PS4, or was that just a rumor? I got it for under $5 on steam at the beginning of the year.

Thanks tips! haha. Yea, It's the reason i never had a PS3 until that gen was over :D

I got a sealed Skyrim for like $4 (CAD) shipped a while back. Still haven't opened it to experience how bad it is on PS3 with my own eyes!

Skyrim on PS3 is... playable. It crashes occasionally but definitely not the ideal platform.

I got Alien Isolation for PS3 ($5 new/shipped). Goodness. It's so horrible. It came with the Nostrmo DLC so I'll probably just play that and then give it away or something.

PS3 is not the multiplatform game console of choice.

I tried the first Red Dead on the PS3 about a month ago (Beat it back in the day on 360) and it really wasn't that bad.

Reason i wanted to try bayonetta on the PS3 is because it was cheap and i wanted the Japan version (360 game is locked). I've since bought it on steam and will play it on PC, i guess :D

Bayonetta came out today for PS4 and Xbox One, bundled with Vanquish. Not the cheapest route since the package is like $40, but still, yes, it's now available on those machines.

Just wanted to pipe in and say that the PS3 is also much easier to get custom or modified firmware (as opposed to 360 options) and then play from HDD. Assuming all disc drives fail, PS3 will likely last you longer. I tend to buy PS3 ports for that reason.

That said, I went the Wii U route for Bayonetta (also pretty easy to hack).
