When will you stop playing PS3?

234 posts in this topic

For those of you who still play your PS3, when do you think you’ll stop doing so? It's still going to be a long while for me.

Basically while it still has games of my interest AND the trophy sync servers are still operational.

Games of my interest == every game that has a trophy list synced to PSN.

In this scenario, I guess PS3 going completely offline and unsupported by Sony is the most probable reason of a future me abandoning the PS3 and finally moving exclusively to PS4.

Rinse and repeat for subsequent platforms.

When I’ve finished all my backlog games (currently 12 though a couple I may not bother with) and when I’ve gone back and earned all trophies for incomplete games already on my profile.

So long as my PS3 is still running, I wont stop playing it anytime soon.  Granted, haven't played it lately, but it's only cause I don't feel like playing anything on it right now, but hey, if I feel like it at a later date, I will.

I will play until I finish my backlog, I'm so close with only five left!  At the rate I'm playing, probably around August 2018.  My PS3 has lived a good life but it is time to move on.

Until complete to 100% all my favorite PS3 games that I have.

 

I'm really tired of the cheaters in PS3, for example, i play GTA Online, but i play alone to avoid that some "hacker" erase my progress/stats in this game, but i like play alone and i don't get bored, this is good, and also i like single-player games and that keeps me entertained. :)

 

EDIT: In addition, on PS3 there are many good single-player games, and if i discover any of those games that I still don't know then I will play that game on my PS3, and i will not stop playing GTA Online on PS3 until i buy a PS4 to play the most complete version of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online, without cheaters. :)

You're lucky, my fat ps3 has died more than 6 years ago. Have a Super Slim since June of 2013

Some of you guys on about backlogs, such lightweights :P

But yeah.. until I finish my backlog of like, 200+ games, most likely I'll be buying another PS3 when one breaks down before I willingly stop using it.

I know, I got my PS3 in around... 2008, I think? So it's at least 10 years old, honestly I'm surprised it still works myself (I've opened it up to clean it a couple times, but that's it). :D

When PS4, PS5, PS6, PS7, PS8, or PS9 plays PSOne games.

 

I really hope I don’t have to keep it connected for too much longer, but I’ll always have it around for when I want to revisit some modern classics.

I guess once they stop any kind of trophy syncing, or once I run out of games to play/plat on the system. However, I don't think either of these things will happen. Unless Sony goes under and stops all services for the Playstation brand, I'm sure trophy syncing will always exist. And even if I run out of new games to play, I'm sure there's going to be games I'll want to revisit that don't get ported. Off the top of my head I can think of a few. Like Lollipop Chainsaw, Zone of the Enders HD, Tales of Graces f, Metal Gear Solid 4, Persona 4 Arena, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

 

So, probably never. Just like how I still play my Genesis from time to time, I'm sure my PS3 will be the same.

I actually wouldn't mind never playing a game for trophies on ps3 again. I still have a few games on my ps3 backlog but I would much rather play on ps4 at this point. Sure I do get game crashes as well on PS4 but not nearly as often, the load times faster, graphics better, easier to stream from, trophies sync faster, messages more organized etc. Heck the last few ps3 games I played for trophies I lost game data and had to start over or got stuck in an auto save in an impassible state. Might just be bad luck but it just worries me every time i play it now.

You wouldn't think it'd be a costly service to keep running, if that'd be the problem to shut it down 🤔

You should read entire posts. There's usually helpful information in them. I specifically said that that should never happen.

Yes. I did. I am just speculating, and I was curing to hear what you would say as to why you'd think they ever would shut down trophy syncing.

I'm curious, are you trying to act like an asshole?

I'm seriously contemplating picking up a 3rd ps3 before a new one becomes less affordable. Right now they're almost the same price as psvr/ps4-pro when those have been discounted which really isn't great, I should have jumped on it when they were being cleared out for $100-200. My 60GB model is still going strong, slim one is still good too, but in the back of my head I'm always thinking 'I hope these systems last long enough for me to go through all these games'. There's really no end in sight, I could be going for another decade as long as I still have a working system.

As long as the old girl still works. Surprised it lasted this long. I still have the fat one that I got in 08.
