    My kid has a few games for PS3 and fights me for time. Looking to get PS4 in july. And Madden in Aug.

    So is most people selling their PS3 and what is a good price to get?

    I have every Madden game from like 97 till now. So I tend to horde those things. I just cant sell it for $1 dollar to game stop, it is collectors item in my mind.

    Im thinking keeping PS3 for my 6 year old for Infinity and other games. But I know he will want or think he has half ownership in the PS4. Which I think ill put in the Man cave....

    So probably keep both systems unless PS3 still sells for decent. I just bought the slim ps3 about a year ago after the fatboy died.

    I'm selling mine to a friend. I thought about keeping him just to use as a blu ray player somewhere else in my house but i'd rather just get rid of it.

    Keeping it and moving it to the bedroom. Blu-ray player, streaming Netflix, and not a POS like the last blu-ray that was supposed to do the aforementioned. It wouldn't even connect to the wireless.

    I also have two games downloaded on the system that I want to finish someday (Last of Us and Assassin's Creed III)

    I know I can probably google and find out pretty quick, but my fingers were doing the walking on here :)

    In case you havn't Googled it yet, the PS4 is not backwards compatible but Sony is working on a straming service in which you can stream older PS games and play them on the 4.

    I was going to move my ps3 into the living room to replace the ps2 that my girls use as a dvd player but, I like the idea of moving it into the bedroom. Our Netflix dvds usually lay around for a few weeks before we get around to watching them downstairs. Might get to them quicker in the bedroom...

    Yep, as far as I've seen though, no plans to let you play the titles for free that you have discs for. Basically it will be a rental service only, but it looks like you will be able to chose to rent individual titles or pay for open access from the most recent rumors.
