My playstation collection
I have officially joined the ranks of Playstation 3 owners. It’s not that I really had a desire to own one at this point in time but Bestbuy was having a pretty decent sale. I have actually wanted to upgrade my 27″ TV for quite some time now and the sale for a 40″ LCD with essentially a PS3 thrown in sold me on it.
So far I haven’t really had the opportunity to test it out. I’ve hooked up the PS3 but since Sony was cheap and only supplied some composite cables, I am unable to see the true beauty of 1080p. Fortunately though, I have a couple of HDMI cables coming in the mail later this week ^.^
I’m glad I actually own it now but it’s pretty sad that I’m not as excited about it as I thought I would be. I think I’ll load Final Fantasy XI onto it even though I’ve heard that it looks pretty poor on the PS3. I’d like to retire my LE Yellow PS2 and in order to do that, I’ll have to use the PS3 for FFXI. Oh well, it’s a give and take type of relationship ^.-
I love retiring old systems. It’s satisfying in a way. Being able to repack a console means that there will no longer be any daily wear and tear on the system. It means that If I ever feel like going back to reminisce, I can. It means that I have purchased the new and improved system. Of course the obvious would be that it frees up room on my entertainment stand to fit the new consoles ^.^
Anyway I’m enjoying the new LCD immensely. Now it’s time to save up for a 360!
Game on kids!
