My son has developed an interest in playing the PS4 that is set up in our local library. At present, I don't have the money or inclination to buy one.
I have seen a lot of local ads on Kijji for people selling used PS3s for around $100. Does it make sense to get a PS3 for that price, or would I be better off waiting and getting a PS4 at some point?
Bear in mind:
1) All I want to do is load discs into the machine and play the games
2) I have no interest in the internet capabilities of the machine (my son's seven and the last thing I want is him stumbling into some online gaming community)
3) I don't want to use it as a Blu Ray/DVD/CD player
4) There are a lot of PS3 games available to borrow for free from our local library
Please avoid technical specs in your answers, as they'll only go over my head
, I just want a general idea of whether a PS4 is worlds better than the PS3, or if it would only be hardcore gamers that "need" the upgrade.
