Would it still make sense to buy a PS3 or X360 with the new generation machines just around the corner?

I came across a 500Gb Playstation 3 at the local video game shop for $150, including a used game. A new PS4 will cost $400, and a new XBox One will be $500. I’ve missed this generation of gaming (except for a Wii, and I still have an original XBox and GameCube though). Will it be a waste of money to buy a PS3 this late in the product cycle? How long is Sony likely to continue to support the PS3? I ruled out the Wii U when Nintendo cut most online services for the Wii 6 months after the Wii U was released and while still selling the original Wii. I don’t want to get a $150 lame duck.

The Apple TV is like that old friend from college--pretty cool, but always crashing in your living room. Its inconsistent stability, frustratingly anemic content offering, and lack of rich input methods have kept it from becoming what Apple enthusiasts long swore it would be: the iPhone of TV set-top boxes. Though its interface and hardware continue to evolve, the little black box faces real competition from faster-moving players that are offering more, like the Roku 3 and the new Fire TV from Amazon.
