I've never owned a console system but I figured if I ever wanted one I better buy it before inflation really hits. And yes, I do my own grocery shopping so I know inflation's here, I just expect it to get worse. Like Jimmy Carter worse.
I didn't get the system just for playing games. I already have a Hulu Plus account so I expect to use my PS3 to watch movies on my big screen tv instead of moving my laptop around. And I've always wanted a Blue-Ray player. Does this sound like excuse making for spending a lot of money on a game console?
I bought the Uncharted 3: Game of the Year Bundle that also has the DUST 514 content pack from Best Buy since my credit card is giving me 5% back on purchases from Best Buy this quarter. I figure I need to get a first person shooter, which I never play, in order to prepare for DUST and not look like a total noob. Because frankly that's what I am when it comes to console games.
That leads to another concern. I need to learn how to use the controller if nothing else and playing games should help. So what games should I look to buy? Right now I'm looking for something I can play single player so I don't embarrass myself. If anyone has any recommendations please send them my way.
And one more question. How do I get a beta key for DUST?
EDIT: Just saw that Midway Arcade Origins was announced yesterday. To give you an idea, those are among the most recent console games I've played.
