    Default Would like to ask about the PS3

    Hello, I have something to ask. Meaning that my relative
    Is about to give the PS3 because he bought the PS4Pro
    I therefore want to ask if the PS3 games are still available to play.
    Or not, and will the PS3 last for a long time?
    It was my first game machine too. Thank you.

    Yes? You might not find many people playing multiplayer, but why wouldn't the games still be available?

    The PS3 has been obsolete for nearly 6 years, don't the games usually go off the shelves quicker than that? Been a long time since I went to a game store, what with being a PC gamer and having Steam etc., but I recall them getting rid of older generation console games quite quickly.

    Depends on the game store. Places that aren't primarily game stores (like Walmart, Target, etc) likely won't carry anything other than PS4 games. Gamestop and other used game stores are much more likely to have a PS3 bargain bin section.

    Heck, my local game store still sells SNES games. I also picked up a used DS from there last year, and that's a good 15 years old. Did a great job for playing Final Fantasy Legend 2.

    My advice to the OP would be to check your local game stores for their selection, and if there's anything specific you want check Amazon. Most high profile PS3 games will still be getting sold online even if they aren't available locally.

    In addition to places like gamestop, it's cheap and easy to find PS3 games online. As long as you're not interested in multi-player it should be fine.

    The Playstation Store's still active, isn't it? You might have difficulty finding physical copies of games, but you should still be able to buy them online.

    Yeah this is what I was going to say. Tons of good games on the PSN.

    Plus there’s always Amazon.
