Am I too old to get a PS3?

I use to have a PS1 many years ago.

I'm in my middle forties now, am I too old to get back into gaming?

You're definitely not too old to scrap the PS3 and get an Xbox One instead Wink

Re: Am I too old to get a PS3?

My mother is 68, she started on the Megadrive with Echo, Phantasy Star, Sonic.  Moved on to the PS1 with lots of RPG's, the PS2 she went through 2 of them, lots and lots of RPG's on that, Wild Arms, Final Fantasy, Star Ocean etc.  Then onto the PS3, more RPG's, Resident Evil, Assassins Creed, Uncharted, Tomb Raider (old and new), RPG's, now she is on the PS4 (and the new Tomb Raider on Xbox One).

 

My niece, she would be talking to her college friends and they would say "omg, I so want to play the new <current most wanted adventure game>" and she would reply "oh, my grandmother played that".

 

So no, not too old, in fact, strongly recommended, it'll keep your mind active as it's much more interactive than watching a TV show
