Ultimately, it’s your choice, but it’s probably not worth getting PS3 in 2020. But if you really want a PS3, i’d say wait for the PS5 and get a cheap PS4. It’s not backward compatible but it has some of the best games, ever. You can play most of the PS3 and PS2 games with PS Now.
The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a home video game console developed by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is the successor to PlayStation 2, and is part of the PlayStation brand of consoles. It was first released on November 11, 2006 in Japan, November 17, 2006 in North America, and March 23, 2007 in Europe and Australia.
Sony’s PlayStation 3 struggled not only because of its custom architecture, but because the architecture was expensive (the PS3 also had a pricey Blu-Ray drive). It drove the price of the PS3 up to $600 at launch, while the Xbox 360 was just $400 at launch. That mistake left an impression on Sony.
The 160GB retails for $299 USD, and the 320GB for $399. Feature-wise, these new models are identical to the previous slim models. On October 29, 2010, Sony announced that they would be distributing standalone models of the 160 and 320 GB consoles to retailers.
As of 31st January, 2020, 23.59GMT, the SingStore servers will be shut down. All online functionality, network features, and digital music downloads will be immediately disabled. Note this is not possible for PS3 / PS2 users, where if a downloaded song is deleted, it cannot be re-downloaded. Play Party Mode.
No, it’s not true. Almost all third party games are still up unless they do silent shutdowns (James Bond PS3 games are mostly shut down due to this).
Sony has announced that the PS3 is officially ending production. After 11 years and 3 model redesigns, Sony has finally decided that the PS3 has seen its day.
It was expensive to manufacture. Another feature that made the PS3 expensive at launch was the PS2 backwards compatibility. Many people were complaining it didn’t run well, so they removed the feature to drop the price later afterwards. Because the jump from the ps2 to ps3 was huge.
Games for PS3 obviously aren’t being made, the last game released for the console was Fifa 19 on September 28 2018.
The PS2 and PS3 are later and improved version of Sony’s Playstation gaming console. The PS3 is the latest and most superior of the two, specification wise. The PS3 is equipped with better processors and GPU that leads to much better graphics and fluid motion.
Last me around 5-6 years. Now I have a slim one, and no problem with that. Bought a new PS3 Slim in November 2010. I’ve logged at least 1000 hours on it.

Sadly you cannot play Fortnite on PS3. There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, Fortnite uses Unreal Engine 4 – which is the latest iteration of Epic’s Unreal Engine technology.
