There has been so much history between me and my Sony Playstation 3. I’ve been wanting to purchase one since 2 years ago! Unfortunately, I couldn’t save enough money to get one. Finally last year, I had enough dollars to get the all new PS3 Slim w/c was a bit cheaper than the old models of Sony Playstation 3.
I found the prices here in the Philippines to be very steep, so I sought the help of my mom’s friend to buy it for me. Since we were both planning to go visit my mom at the same time, I took the opportunity as PS3 in the United States was a bit cheaper. I can save like Php 3,000 if I did!
I was too excited to finally have my own Sony PS3! When I arrived in Taiwan, news came to me that my PS3 was stolen in the airport! *sniff*. I don’t want to bore you with the details but I ended up buying another Sony Playstation 3 Slim at Taipei. I got the Sony PS3 bundle with the unit, extra controller, & HDMI cable at 11,880NT. Super worth it! Sony Playstation 3 is the best gaming console in the market!
Here are my reasons why I love this wonderful gaming console:
- Wireless & Wifi enabled
Keeping up with technology, this is definitely one of the best reasons why I love Sony PS3. The dual-shock controller is wireless, I don’t have to worry about wires or even have to fall accidentally coz of it. I can go around the room holding the wireless controller. Total coolness!
I also love that Sony Playstation 3 has built-in Wifi! I can download firmware in just one click. I can chat with my friends online. I can stream movies from my laptop. Awesomeness, don’t you think?
Best invention by Sony Playstation team ever! I just love that Sony PS3 is not just a gaming machine but a great movie player. My golly, it’s in Blu-ray! And I even have to buy an HD TV just to be able to keep up with PS3.
One more, Sony PS3 can play 3D Blu-ray discs something that other standalone blu-ray players cannot do. It is just a no-brainer, Sony PS3 is our choice.
- Superb Graphics
I was in awe. When I opened the PS3 and started watching a movie, I was blown away! The graphics was out of this world! It was so great that I didn’t even have to adjust anything. Sony PS3 automatically adjusted to the capability of my TV!
- Awesome Games
Titles like Gran Turismo, Unchartered-Drake’s Fortune, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Gran Turismo, God of War, Ratchet & Clank and a lot more. You’re definitely in for a treat!
- More value for money
A standalone blu-ray player cost around $200. Sony Playstation 3 is around $299. And Sony PS3 is not just a gaming console, it’s a blu-ray player, an entertainment system, great storage for stuff (120GB), it can let you view photos & videos. You can connect with your friends, the possibilities are endless. I’m definitely happy with my purchase and if you haven’t bought a PS3, then you’re definitely missing a lot!
