I got my ps3 backlog down to 25 games, with another 20 optional games i finished on pc. Mostly Bioware rpgs. When i finish all that or my ps3 dies, thats when i stop playing.

I might not stop playing ps3 as there is classic games that I hardly think would come back onto ps4 or ps5 such as siren blood curse or genji days of the blade or even 3d dot game heroes and a lot more.

I been on halt for months since my PS3 got broken but i do intend to get a another system to continue play my backlog that i still perserve and still got a few titles here and there but barely looking for more PS3 games cause i already got all i want . 

Waiting to see if the PS5 gonna to do backwards retrocompatilibty from PS1 to PS3 , so i don't need to buy a PS2 and PS3. to play all my PS1 and PS2 games also.

WHEN THEY PRY MY CONTROLLER FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS!!!!

lol actually man, america sony really is trying to kill this system badly. they quit updating ps plus, for everyone. the "deals" are usually 4 games a month compared to europe that gets like 40 or more games. some of our games get removed like expendables i had to buy on a uk account. the store has been crap ever since they gave it the update years ago. the ps3 cant handle the gui graphics and often freezes and is just slow to browse. i feel like its lagging me on purpose to encourage me to move on. the original old layout i use to browse games for days and buy stuff. but i have a huge backlog. supposedly support for ps3 was suppose to end next year. if it does i dont know how much thatll impact games and servers. they let ps2 run extremely long. i can even connect to ps2 battlefield on my ps3 and find 9 players still playing for some reason. guess they really like the game lol. with 6 ps3s i dont plan on stopping for a while. i have tons of unplayed games and alot more to buy with their cheap prices

Best way for me to get round this, is to purchase items from the store from a laptop, then go to view downloads when on the PS3. Means you only have to sit through one slow loading screen when opening the store :)

Right now PS3 is my only link to Sony because I don't have a PS Vita or PS4. So I guess when I get bored of collecting trophies on here. :P

I'll stop playing PS3 when the PS store goes down permanently, or if they shutdown the ability to sync trophies. Until then, the PS3 still has a lot of great games.

I'm going to keep playing it for quite a while yet. There are still a lot of games I want to play (and replay) on it. Given how cheap the games are, and since when I got mine with it came with several games, I've managed to buy up quite a backlog and I don't want to leave most of them unplayed. The other thing is that I want to try and get as many trophies as I can from it before they shut down the trophy servers which hopefully won't happen for a long while yet. 

 

Just looking at the list of games I want to finish, there's Tales of Xillia 1 (and 2), Dragon's Dogma, the Jak and Daxter trilogy, Singularity, the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy (at least the first one), Folklore, 3D Dot Game Heroes and also the Bioshock trilogy (replay) and Max Payne 3 (replay). I'll also need to use it for Persona 3 FES. I've also noticed, looking at the PS3's library, that there are quite a few "one and done" FPSes that aren't too long, and it seems that games like that (stuff like Singularity and the CoD campaigns) don't get made as often anymore. Given how much I like games like that, it's just another reason to keep using the system.

I suspect servers for PS3 will START being shut down in the following 12 months after the PS5 is released (it's a lot of extra networking and cost to keep up a service that at that point will be TWO generations old). I figure all online services for PS3 will be permanently disconnected by the 24 month mark after the PS5 releases.

 

So that said: I'm going to try to beat all the games in my PS3 library by then (that gives me 2-3 years).

 

To be honest: I'm a retro gamer as much as a modern gamer (maybe even more so), and I have no interest in stopping playing my PS3 until I have too. And even then. After I've gotten all my games beaten and whatever trophies earned - I will probably STILL return to my system at different points over the years (even without the online support/trophies) just to replay favorites Like Tales of Graces F and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

 

I actually have THREE PS3's. One is my main system, and the other two are 'offline only' hacked (CFW) BC launch PS3's for playing PS2 Backups (ISOs) - so I already have a good Idea of what our PS3's will be like to use when the services, trophies, store are shut off.

When no more controllers will work for it.

Well my PS3 backlog is down under 10 now, so it could be fairly soon. While I worked on this, my PS4 backlog ballooned, so I'll just be moving on to those!

Probably never, there is so many good games still on there that I haven't finished. Plus I have Metal Gear Solid on there and until that is on another console, that will definitely mean never

Not for a while. Currently playing through Ghostbusters, and I have longterm backlogged saves on countless games like Mass Effect 2, Force Unleashed, etc. I've a pile of Lego games I could easily sink a few enjoyable hours into, same with Gran Turismo 5. The main thing holding me back is that I much prefer the DS4 ergonomics to its predecessor's.

I still have few games i'm planning to play (as well as platinum) but that won't happen soon. I don't know how long it takes, so i'm going to say 1-2 years.
