Well, I finally bought a PS3. It has a ton of exclusives I’ve always wanted to play, with more announced at E3. And I had a ton of old games to trade in. With the trade in and some other lucky promotions, I got one of the best deals ever.
- PS3 160 gb
- Call Of Duty: Black Ops
- Killzone 3 Collector’s Edition
- Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
- Little Big Planet & Wipeout HD (Sony’s Welcome Back promotion, since I technically had an account from when I briefly had a PS3 in Edmonton)
- HDMI Cables
Total after tax: 200$
Now THAT is a deal! The Killzone 3 Collector’s edition came with a cool dynamic theme for the PS3, all DLC, the OST and Making Of vid, an art book, an action figure and a cool bust of the Helghast.
I spent most of the weekend on Skype with Chad playing PS3. Felt like old times having a videogame night with Chad. I miss when we lived together in Edmonton, those were good times.
My PS3 experience hasn’t been perfect however. The first night it started beeping and making really louds clunking sounds. I returned it the next day for an exchange and the new one is working fine though, thankfully.
Also, Oliver was quite happy to see I finally got a PS3. He’s an admitted PS3 fanboy (and Kanye fanboy for that matter…)
It’s been a lot of fun so far, and easily worth the cheap price I paid! So far I’ve been playing Infamous and Little Big Planet. You may have noticed I’ve added a PS3 ID badge to my blog now too. Now I can be an achievement AND trophy whore . Now back to playing! If you have a PS3, add me: notme2000
