It's a game system. They're kind of "my thing."

Exclusives, Blu-Rays, and PS1 Classics (although that might be considered exclusives, as well).

Uncharted, Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Little Big Planet 2. All multiplats go to my PC and 360.

I haven't turned it on in months. Been waiting for The Last Of Us. That's going to be awesome.

Was sick of the Wii not having any games I wanted, and the PS3 had Valkyria Chronicles, with the Skies characters making an appearance in it (<3 SoA, it was one of the few games I said I'd buy a console for a sequel to, and Valkyria seemed the closest I was ever going to get).

So, it was my first non-Nintendo console. The Tales games it's getting now might also have tempted me over, if Valkyria hadn't.

Cause it had Virtua Fighter 5 on release, and once it was released on 360 in a much better adaptation the PS have been collecting dust fo a while, till Little Big Planet.

All-purpose Blu-Ray Player. I'm an entertainment kind of guy, which means I generally spend hundreds (if not thousands, I don't honestly keep track) on multi-media entertainment every year. When the choice was either $600 or more* for the Xbox or $300 for the PS3, I was pretty sold.


*This being the price of an Xbox and the Blu-Ray player needed to upgrade to Blu-Ray.

I played a lot of those on other peoples PS3's:

Uncharted 1 and 2 were on a housemates PS3. 3 I played on my own, and finished it. It should be on my list >_>

Killzone 3 I played a few hours of on my PS3, but didn't like it. I played the first on PS2 and just found the characters and universe utterly boring.

Resistance 1, 2 and 3 should all be on my profile, I played them all on my PS3. They're enjoyable, but hardly an exclusive worth buying a console for.

GoW1/2 I played on PS2, 3 should be on my profile, I only played it a few months back. Solid series, but again nothing I'd consider worthy of buying a console for.

Infamous 1 I played on a housemates console, 2 I played on my own when I bought it. Didn't think much of the series tbh, you feel like the worlds weakest superhero.

Heavy Rain, played on another console. Loved it, a fantastic game.

MGS4, played on another console. Probably the biggest disappointment this generation. It was playable, but such a massive step down compared to 3.

GT5- don't play racing games tbh.

So I've played the majority of that list, just most of it was a few years back on someone else's network ID.

The best exclusive I've played is Journey, that's a truly brilliant experience.

EDIT: Are you looking at my Gamefaqs collection? I only started using that recently, so it's missing games I traded in (I've played hundreds more games than that, I just trade or eBay them when I'm done).

exclusives, third party games, sequels, to play certain games not running well on my current PC without thinking about requirements, and arcade ports.
