Hooly555

Showed my 10 year old Cousin Crash 3 the other day. Now his mum has asked me to get the game and a machine to Play it on. My question is what Playstation should I get for him as his first step in to gaming? I thought skip PS1 and go straight to a PS2 or PS3. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • I'm still trying to figure out what half of these games even are!

    I'm excited and frightened!

  • For a 10 year old I would get a ps2. No issues with online ability and the price is a lot lower. And those things can take a beating and still work :) If he is a bit like any other 10 year old around here then a violent outburst when he is stuck isn't out of the question. If he likes it you can upgrade him to a ps3 later.

  • I think, go through the whole family - itll give him an appreciation of the current platform if he sees where it started. Some outstanding games on the PS1, PS2 and PS3 - but the real variety for me came on the PS1. PS2 has too much shovelware and the PS3 has some exclusives, but go back to the start! It is a fun journey

  • For someone that isn't collecting, it may be best to go for a PS3 and buy the game on the store.

    A PS2 wouldn't be an awful idea, though I doubt the average 10yr old will appreciate it these days.

    It solely depends on how you think your cousin will feel to the rest of the console's library.

    Though you can't use PS2 discs on the PS3, there are HD releases and PS2 games in the store.

  • Any update on your eBay "issue"?

  • Exactly which is why I'm sceptical!

  • Also you say it was a couple of weeks ago that he received the parcel and only now complains. If it was missing then he should have spotted it and reported it to you straight away.

  • Mmm, minty freshness.

  • I've got lots of the way out, bundles mainly - PS3, PS4, dreamcast and some PS1, PS2 games, as well as XBOX (maybe a bundle with a console), a C64 Disc Drive and a Saturn Virtua Cop Gun set unboxed. About 70 games, 4 consoles and lots of accessories!!
