I recently traded in my 3DS for a Vita, got bored with the Vita so traded it in for a PS3. I now find myself in the same situation with the PS3, should I trade it in towards the Wii U?

Maybe it's gaming you're board of? Did you have a PS3 before because I don't see how you could get bored of it in a few months.

No, I've never owned a PS3 however I have owed a 360 in the past and as above got bored!!
Maybe I am getting bored of gaming, I am reaching 36 now, not that age has anything to do with it! I spoke to my friend whilst on lunch who will be 43 on the weekend and he still loves video games.....

Didnt you post this in another thread? I'd say keep the PS3. It seems to me that if you sold the PS3 to buy a Wii U, whats stopping you from selling that to buy a 360, then selling that to buy a PS4, then selling that to buy a nextbox etc etc etc.

"Maybe it's gaming you're board of?" +1

How about just getting a half decent PC and a wired Xbox controller. That way you can play games and youve got a computer.

After 3 years with 360, I just bought PS3 as well. Backlog of excellent Sony exclusives games is like a blackhole which I won't be able to climb out of, ever! PSN keep dishing out new games to play for free too. Not sure about you, but I am far from bored with it. Also, is it really wise to buy Console at launch?

I agree with the posters above, if you got bored of a 360, 3DS, Vita and PS3 then there is nothing on Wii U that is going to be any different.

Wii U also isn't out for another 4+ months aswell :p.

Try finding another hobby or simply taking a break. Occasionally I burn myself out and don't play games for a few weeks.

I dont have the room in the house to have a PC, I Have a laptop, a Wii and PS3. When I traded my 3DS in it was because I was P!$$ed off with Nintendo and thought the Vita was the way forward. I have since fallen back in love with Nintendo due to playing Pikin with the new play controls.
Maybe the Wii U it is then...

Well if you've money to throw around like that do as you please. I agree that Pikmin is awesome, but if you're after that sort of gaming, why not stick with the Wii, sell your PS3 now since you'll get more now than in 4 months time at the WiiU release, then buy a Wii U.

I have 3 children who keep me busy and entertained so it's not as though i'm on the console day in day out.
the last time I played on the PS3 was to play a spot of Marvel Pinball which is great : o )

Everybody says no.

Either destiny or Cupid have brought you here. Have you met Lindsay?

"Buy a pinball table ;)."

No room for a PC, definitely no room for a Pinball Table :p

Totally agree, even when I go 'off' gaming for a bit, my 360 doubles as a DVD player for the lil daughter, then a new game comes out and bam, 10 hours a week suddenly vanish from my shcedule.
Just bought saints row 2 - never played one before, looks good - am I in for a dissapointment?
I'm looking for a ps3 now though as the net is getting installed sometime next month and PSN is free.
I would never buy a console new, unless I had more money than brains. Paid £20 for my xbox off gumtree as it is 'banned' from live for some strange reason, before that I had 2 ps3s.

I'd love to own an old school Bally pinball table.

If your interested in Pikmin 3 for Wii U, be aware it's a 'launch window' game which going by what the Nintendo of America president said will be 'up to 4 months after release', so Pikmin 3 could well not be released until late March 2013.

Sorry Cptn replied to the wrong person :p.

I'm 'off' gaming myself at the moment, i have bought two games new all year, Mass Effect 3 which i played for around two hours and got bored with and Diablo 3 which to be fair i was addicted to for a few weeks.

Nothing has really grabbed me this year so far, the only three games i am interested in for the rest of the year are Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6 and Farcry 3.

You prefer buying new consoles (over and over) to new games ;) lol.

What sort of genres do you play, what are your favourite games, and what have you become bored of recently? Don't get rid of your PS3 because getting a different console won't just cure the problem.

Then you'd sell them all and buy them again half a dozen times just to prove how rich your are! ;)
