PSXE Poll Update: "New PS3s Are Fine, But I'm Stickin' With Mine"
The new PS3 models are coming our way soon, and we wanted to know how Sony fans felt about the new machine.
Although a few said they plan to immediately upgrade their old PS3 console, the majority said that while the fresh consoles are good enough, they'll be sticking with their system for at least a while. Sounds logical.
It's also interesting to note that a fair amount said they would've rather seen a lower price tag, and just about the same number of participants said they didn't care at all; they just want the PS4. We usually see new hardware models toward the end of a generation; as the technology gets better, they can manufacture smaller, more efficient machines. But at the same time, a lot of hardcore gamers are already looking forward to the new consoles on the horizon. Therefore, the new models may appeal more to the casual audience who might finally pick up a PS3 because it's at the right price, and there are a ton of games for it.
This week, some might say the fall rush officially starts with Resident Evil 6. So are you getting it? Will you be one of the first people in line? Are you going to wait for reviews? Or are you just passing on it altogether?
