And the other exclusives i have missed over the years but this made me give in. I'm getting the Uncharted 3 combo so i will play it until this comes friday. I just hope i can get used to the controller. I have played xbox for 7 years, every day for 7 years too

I just did the same thing. I previously had a PS3, but I sold it when PSN went down a few years back. I got the uncharted 3 bundle also. I also ordered GT5. If you like racing games it is awesome.

Maybe a little late to the game... but there is such a nice collection out there that you can feast on some games for much cheaper than others, so in some ways, you got the better end of the stick.

KungPoo, i bought a PS3 3 years ago for Uncharted and was not dissapointed. Im glad I own a PS3 for this game, it looks that an xboxer for sure but just can not pass up on some games when they are exclusives like this and uncharted series...its worth putting out the cash...have fun......

Good move. I got a ps3 almost 4 years ago because of Uncharted 2 and haven't looked back since. Naughty Dog can definitely help sell consoles. I do not plan on getting any next gen console but who knows maybe Naughty Dog can top The Last of Us and Uncharted and make me cave in and get the PS4.

EXACT same boat my friend. I've played Xbox since 2001, but I finally caved into buying a PS3 in order to play this game. And to be honest, I was not disappointed. This is quite possibly the greatest game I've ever played.

The best games I've played on PS3 were without a doubt Red Dead Redemption, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Fallout3. Fallout3 GOTY edition is great until it starts glitching around level 29. But still great game. PSN has some great classic games though, such as Doom2 Hell on Earth, GTA San Andreas, etc.

Ahh yes, the old "I bought my PS3 because of..." forum!

Well, I bought my PS3 because of God of War 3 :-)

My turn, I bought a PS3 this past weekend for The Last of Us, Uncharted and God of War. I love it so long to the Xbox. Plus the free games every month for being a PS+ member is awesome.

You can still get an XBox like controller for the PS3 here on Amazon.

If you bought a ps3 specifically for this game then I am positive you did the right thing !!!

Get this Dual Triggers for Playstation 3 PS3- Black for your controller. It really makes a difference on the triggers.

EDIT: Get from different seller, I posted the link above because it was the first I found, but you can get this anywhere, even amazon has some others options.

I have a ps3 simply for the exclusives and honestly i hate most of then lol ( I don't regret the purchase and i love my ps3 as much as my 360)! Of those that you mentioned ... Resistance was meh, Killzone sucked , Rachet and clank is pretty good , MGS4 Was horrible in my idea, Little big planet was good, Heavenly sword was ok, Jurney, Fat princess, Flower havent played, Braid is actually on PC and Xbox 360 and came to 360 first i belive, Demon souls was ok, The ICO & Shadow of colossus collection was meh, God of war i love the first PSP game but never really liked the core game on ps2/ps3 for some reason, Heavy rain was awesome, Haven't played Valkyria chronicles, Ni No Kuni the sly cooper collection or Guacamelee, Gran Turismo 5 meh i prefer Forza actually , and Infamous while a better game then prototype and good gameplay the story in my opinion was dull for both games
