You'll definitely be able to play the games the only one I have a concern about is Bioshock infinite as I don't know how demanding that is, as is only a new game.

Ps3's are **** for games when you think about it. A ps3 struggles to play FarCry 3 at over 30 fps, probably on the only medium to high equivalent settings. And drops well below 30 at times... Ps3's are sh it.
