what model PS3 you got... wanna sell it.. I might can use one for my living room.

60gig and heck no I am not selling it, it's my only Blu-Ray player. I was referring to my Jag for my trade list. I was in a bad mood and didn't really mean to thread crap (I strained my achilles heel at Costco, stupid story).

I just thought it was laughable for a self described xbox fanboi to turn tail and flip sides like that and it tweaked me, as I have often thought that those "all or nothing" console owners/and flamers always suffered from a grass is greener-with envy syndrome [intentionally mixed metaphors]. Seeing it proven just kinda PMO (lol, now he's throwing Sony bombs at me) and I lashed out at him.

I meant no real ill will towards him.

As far as my PS3 goes I have played mostly exclusives on it and plan on buying some more. What I was referring to was my anecdotal experience that for any title that is multi-player or multi-platform- my friends, family and I are preferring to pick up for the 360 (unless it's like many of the third-party PS3 titles that dropped super fast like several have at target, then I snap them up quick. Jericho for $12 heck yea, NGS for $14 yep, folklore for $12 you bet) It's been a good bargain machine for things like that and I certainly look forward to the exclusive AAA titles MGS4, GTp&5 but for games like CoD4, R6V 1&2, GTA I am all about the stronger Live community and the longevity for multi-player that it provides.
I only mention it because this seems to be consistent with most gamers in my circle of friends and family, each of us that have strayed on Multi-platform titles have been burned, (orange box, LP, and more recently my brothers R6V2 with the non-functioning MP). Most these things get ironed out.

I am just not an all or nothing/there can be only one "console champion." They tend to PMO and most everyone else, I just couldn't bare the gleefully admitted hypocrisy; and the Loritabs and mead loosened my keyboard. A recipe for disaster.

As I have stated I am not normally a thread crapper, didn't really mean to harsh "your new buyers buzz."

Nice buy nameless welcome to the family. When I bought my ps3 60 gb back in August for $350 I thought about trading it in for a 360, I did for about a month. The with games coming out I was interested in I kept it and well my roomate in the fraternity also bought a ps3, so I play all the games he has.


As for college you have a nice set up and you are lucky to get most of it paid for by the gov.
This is my last semester and last time I checked I spent 82k? in 6 years, average of 13.6k a semester, whereas one semester here averages about 18-20k, and when I started in 2002 it was only 12k.

Sorry to thread crap a little. But enjoy the PS3 and if you ever wanna play Resistance give me a holler or add me as a friend on PS3 at Kube00.

damn, I got Folklore for 30 about a month ago... from Compusa closing deals, and not everyone's getting the game for 15 and 12... dammit.. I knew I should have waited longer.... but I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a copy of the game all of a sudden. oh well.

Yes, Uncharted IS the best game IMO. I was upset ND wasn't making a platformer but liked it better than any other game they made.

Folklore is really awesome. One of the most underrated PS3 games. I wish more bought it near full price to justify more sequels or similar games coming stateside (because in reality, SCEA wasn't even going to bring the game over according to a friend of mine within SCEA, and it took a marketing guy who played the game and tons of convincing to bring it over).

That happened with me and NGS, I had to get another CAG to stake it out for me across the state. You guys should use your local community forums. I think they are a great resource. I turned a glut of other PS3 titles that were price slashed into great trade material. Most never even hit my trade list, it was divide an conquer among the ATL CAGs.

Congrats. I have a similar setup with a 32'' LCD and love the size/quality through HDMI. I definitely agree - you need to pick up Uncharted.

And if you have any money left over, maybe rent a steam cleaner for your carpet ;).

awesome dude! I'm basically in the same boat as you wow. I'm a college student now (GO KU!) and I just now bought an 80gb PS3 (had it since Monday) and have an Elite, but that's getting sold next Friday. I would've liked to kept both as I love the 360, but I have bills to pay and I'm going to grad school in the fall. I figured I'll just have one system and the PS3 looks to be it. My reasons are similar to yours as well and I'm seeing more people make the jump, well for those that can't really have both systems right now. Got it hooked up to a 40" samsung LCD though =) woohoo!! Congrats man, makes me feel great about my jump. though I'm in need of games, just not sure what to get!

well that extra 4 dollars a month can go to an extra meal, or a box of condoms for all the young ladies you're bangin' or not bangin' who knows..

4 dollars a month comes from not having to pay for live anymore.

I've had CoD4 on 360 since day 1, actually since the MP beta, so I'm basically done with that, but I made the switch thanks to MGS4 also.. so I will DEF. pick that up. pre-order sometime in April when the beta is announced

yeah.. i don't understand the "hate".... picked up a ps3 for blu ray.. and some of thier exclusive games....(especially mgs4)... but i also rock xbox live since its established (bunch of my friends are on it too. and live works really well. Have a wii (zelda junkie).

I really don't care who succeds... sony... ms.. or nintendo.... just want to play some good games. I do wish the xbox wasn't such unstable system.. and i do wish sony was a bit cheaper.. and wished they would update that controller....(good design... but want something new).... and the Wii had some third party support.. (but i'd buy the system for zelda alone)

But the ps3 for bluray is worth it alone... (imo)... my dad was looking for one.. and my brother got him to get one just for that.


I do understand though.. being younger... most parents won't let a kid have 2-3 systems.. back in the day .. you had a snes or genisis... rarely do i remember somebody having both.

I recently purchased a 60GB PS3 this January (B-day present for myself). I love it. It gets plenty of work as an upscaling DVD player (which I didn't have) and a Blu-Ray player. When I'm not watching movies, I'm playing COD4, NHL08, and my PS2 backlog upscaled on my LCD HDTV. I feel like I'm finally getting the most out of my Sharp 46 LCD TV now. And there is so much more to take advantage with the PS3 too. Right now, I'm starting to play DIVX video I've downloaded upscaled on my HDTV. I'm excited about in game XMB so I can start using custom music during my games. PS3 is only going to get better with age.

If you have to trade in any of your games Hastings on Clinton Pkwy gives great trade in values. Also try downloading the demo's from PSN most demos are pretty good but it just depends on what type of game you like. Except the Resistance demo really sucked and the full game is WAAAAAAAAAAAY better. Also you may find some games on there you really enjoy that are only 10$ like Pixel Junk Monsters or Pain.

It's the only game I own and will own until Metal Gear.

I totally suck at it, but I suck at any type of shoot style game. However, I still found it addicting as hell. Looked forward to playing it every single night after work when I was playing it.

I'll play it again very shortly here.

Go to any gaming store right now and pick up Uncharted,


I would, but I went kind of trigger happy on my Blurays and now I have to save money lol.

I bought:
I Am Legend
Fifth Element
Terminator 2
Stargate
Reservoir Dogs
Casino Royale
3:10 to Yuma
Die Hard Collection

I'll probably borrow Uncharted from my friend to play it through.

Next on the buying list:
New TV Stand so I can put the PS3 near the TV
Replaced speakers/subwoofer set (Either Klipsch or JBL)
Furniture! I need furniture bad. Last night I had a date come over to watch some movies & play PS3. (Yeah she's cute and she plays video games. Crazy) She was like, "Where are we supposed to sit?" I was more stoked that she worded it as "we", meaning she was sitting with me, but then I realized I only had a bed, pillows and my computer chair.

That works fine when you have a girlfriend and the only time you're in your room is when you're having sex or she's already comfortable laying down with you. But when you're single and bringing dates over, it doesn't look good to just be like "Yeah that's the bed. Take off your clothes and lets start the revolution!"

I just bought a mint condition Uncharted from Gamefly for $38. The game disc I got as a rental was flawless, so I just bought it w/ the free shipping. Played an hour and loved it. Plus I hear the case and manual are immaculate.. well b/c they don't use it. AWESOME!
