    Well, if you're not sure it's gonna be right for you, why not find a way to play the game at a friend's house, at the store, wherever, and see if you like it? (I know that's probably harder than I imagine...)

    There'll be boxed sets with LBP soon, I'd wait for one of them.

    I would reccomend Gran Turismo 4, Call of Duty 4 and or Metal Gear Solid 4 Also. I haven't got LBP yet but I Know it'll be great.

    Wipeout HD is awesome but there are other great games for the PS3. Plus you get a Blu ray player!

    And Tekken 6 is coming soon (OMG!!)

    I definately think a PS3 is worth the investment.

    Loz.

    Cod4 is terrible. Not an MGS fan, I like to play games not watch them. Forza Motorsport>GT4. And Really dont care about Hd/Blu ray cause I dont have an hd tv any more. Money was tight and had to sell it. LBP looks pretty cool. Killzone 2 and LBP are the only game I would ever care about on ps3. My one friend does have a ps, but he isnt into those types of games. I could maybe buy it on his and try it out. But then if I don't like am out 20 bucks.

    Well, actually not. Create your own account on his PS3, and then if/when you do buy your own, you can use 1 of your downloads on the new PS3 under the same account.

    ps3 has more worth than just one game, without turning this into a fanboy rant....ps3 gives you blu ray, free online gaming service, great hardware operation, along with a great holiday line up for games, maybe use some christmas money or something from the holidays to pick it up.

    i don't think you can really justify buying any games console for ONE game. they cost so much these days. especially if you want all of the current gen machines.

    personally when the ps2 came out i thought wow! but waited until there was at least a few games i wanted to play on it and knew they would be good quality with replayability. also when they announced lots of upcoming titles i decided to get one, it was a great decision.

    with the xbox i bought one late in it's life too, a full library of great games been available by then as well

    with the 360 i bought one early-ish, getting a great trade in deal on the old box, also as i knew the games i had for the original box would work on it, and there was a massive ammount of good games coming along/been announced.

    ps3 wise i kinda want one, but not at the current price...and as a big fan of the varied console market (i've owned every console besides the saturn i think) it has very few games, a lot of which i can just play on the 360. including tekken 6, someone just mentioned, recently announced as been put out on the box too, thanks namco! the upcoming games on the ps3, or lack thereof, don't grab me personally.

    is it worth buying one soley for wipeout HD...no.

    could it be at some point...hopefully yes.

    if you can find quite a few other games to interest you and you can afford one...definitely as it is a good machine.

    No doubt.
    WipEout made me buy a PSOne
    WipEout Fusion made me buy a PS2.

    Even if the PS3 wasn't an incredible audio/visual unit with SACD playback at 24/176.4, CD upsampling to 16/176.4, 130/130 on the HQV test disc for DVD upscaling, top of the line 1080p24 playback for Blu-ray disc, etc., etc., I'd probably buy it just for WipEoutHD.

    300 plus quid? Thats quite a lot of money. Surly by now you know what a PS3 has to offer and I bet you already know if your going to buy one or not.

    Theres something about asking folk you've never met about how to spend so much money that's amusing. Who are you trying to justify it to anyway?

    Decisions like this can be overthought. Our subconscious usually makes the decision for us, anyway, and will usually have its way in the end. Might as well give in to your inner self right away.
