Why did you buy a Playstation 3?

Because the Wii was not acceptable as a primary gaming console.

I bought mine for MGS4, played it for an hour, aaaand gave my ps3 no real attention ever since.

I was pretty addicted to Tokyo Jungle for awhile though.

Never planned on getting a ps3, but I ended up winning one in some contest about 2 1/2 years ago.

I bought mine after the $100 price drop in late summer of '07.
I haven't regretted it, but now it's mostly a NetFlix player.

My hard-disc is full of music over 300 albums and I transfer it to my PSP Go and PSP and when memory cards are cheap for the Vita, I'll be using it for music.

I can't wait for the new "Tales of X." to come out and "NNK" looks great from studio Ghibi.

I didnt. My dad did for my bro for his 9th grade graduation. Its practically mine now since he dont use it.

And how is the "Gift" option in last place? Im guessing a lot of you have jobs, but there must be more than 9 people that voted that during 2006-2009, didnt have a job//got great gifts for Christmas/or any other holiday/occasion//were still kids/teens.

I got my first PS3 because it was backwards compatible and played blu-ray.

Then i purchased my 2nd PS3 because my 1st died for the 2nd time and I

didnt want to get it fixed again for the same price as a new one

I got a PS3 because: I do like playstation (especially the controller) and in all honesty Final Fantasy versus Xlll. ( this is before i found out it had been in development for about 5 years at the time.)

Other: it was getting panned at launch and I wanted to see what it was really like. I got a good deal getting a phone and a 'free' ps3. Then a quarter of the way through my contract my bill was halved. Result!

For kingdom hearts 3. Doesn't look like that's gonna happen this gen though,

The only reason was due to Sony's exclusives. Which is also why I'll be getting the next PS.

Edit: I didn't buy one until a year after it launched.
