Bought mine with my high school graduation money because I really wanted to play Resident Evil 5 when that came out. Chose it over 360 because I didn't want a crap system that was going to constantly break down and I liked blu-rays.

To be honest i wouldnt have even gotten one if the ps2 had hdmi connectivity and had continued to get the newest games. But in the long run im glad i did. Its my media center as well as gaming console. I loved ps2 era games but with everything being hd now itd be hard to have the ps2 era graphics. Thats just me though. Im not graphics obsessed but they are nice as long as the game play is good.

Other: I like video games.
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

I got mine last Christmas for the exclusives. Needless to say, I'm a bit disappointed.

I got my first PS3 because it was the successor to the PS2 and I knew MGS4 was on the horizon (got my first PS3 in either January or February 2008)

Black Ops 2 might have the worst online experience of any game I've ever played

Because it wasn't a 360 or a Wii.
