PS3 is made for higher end graphics, has a built in hard drive so no more memory cards, and most importantly, will have games being made for it for somet time, PS2 gmaes will start tailing off.

There are 2 versions of the PS3, they differ by 100.00. For the question you asked, the cheaper PS3 would be your best choice.

If it doesnt have to be Sony and you dont mind waiting a few weeks to find one, grab a Nintendo Wii. Great family game system, less expensive. Graphics are about the same as the PS2, but the games are a blast. We got one for the family gift this year and my 5 year old was playing the bowling game that came with it and was having a blast!

Good luck!

I would also second a Wii. I bought mine the day it came out over a year ago. I brought it to my parents house last Thanksgiving and my Dad saw how much fun my nieces had with it that he went and bought one. My Mom & Dad both play it.

The only problem is the games being made will be phased out for the ps2. As stated above you cant go wrong with the wii for the price... My kids love it.. But I am thinking once the ps3 comes down in price we may own one of them as well..

My sons just unwraped a PS3...LOL. The old PS2 quit working anyhow. PS2's are about $130 while a 40GB PS3 is $399 and 80GB PS3 is $499. Graphic detail is the main difference as far as just playing a game.

On the other hand you get a blue ray high def dvd player with the ps3. If you have a high def tv to look at it with, that might be of value. Otherwise buy a wii, unless you are into shooter games.

I have a Wii, it's cool, the gameplay interactivness is unique and won't be beat for some time. <---That's why people have them, not because of graphics.

I actually did a side by side with a PS3 today as my buddy finally got his. PS3 graphics are totally off the wall compared to a wii. Both displays were done on High Def and there was a noticeable dispaly difference. If you like PS which I do and love great graphics, ps3 is for you. If you like interactive play with your games and don't mind Great but not godly graphics than wii is for you. PS3 with blueray is the kicker and prolly the decision factor with most people. I'm a MMORPG gamer so it's either Im on my PC, my Wii or Ice fishing, I don't watch tv or movies much. Good Luck and Have Fun

Santa just brought a WII with Guitar hero III to our home last night!! My wife and son are having a blast with it at this very moment. My son says it is awesome. It's just to bad that fat bearded guy gets all the credit. wink.gif I am by no means a game head, but I can't help but wonder, what the Rapala fishing game for the WII is like?? Maybe Santa deserves a game. laugh.gif What do ya think??

If you can't justify the 400 price tag and you want something for the grandkids I think and older system would do. If they don't have anything to do they will play it. Try to find a place that sells used systems. We have a place down here that sells used system I think they are going for about 50 bucks that just an option then you can get more rods. Alot of the older games are selling for 20 bucks. Newer one of course are higher

it really just depends on what kind of games the grandkids are going to play. if they are older then you might want to get the ps3 because it has better games and graphics. if they are younger get the ps2, save some money and buy a few games for it. i'm sure if they are younger they wont care about graphics and stuff like that just as long as the games are fun.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
