Got mine in march 07. Waited a few weeks after PAL release, before dropping the grand on it.

she's still with me today, freshly tuned up and no longer freezing.

I sometimes believe it was my own doing the my 60 broke on me. I think it was all the pon taking up space.

The ps3 was the last console of the 3 I got this gen, in June 2010. I'll probably get PS4 much much earlier, depending on launch titles.

February 2009 for Street Fighter 4. This was actually the last console I got of the main 3 but by far my favorite.

Got a Wii but I wanted to play more games that were not on the system so I got a 360. I didn't like the 360 controller because it kept giving me problems, wouldn't stay synced, batteries wouldn't stay in place, d-pad was horrible. I sold the 360 to my friend and bought a ps3. Upgraded to a slim last year and haven't looked back.

Got a new 160gb version for $200 in a 2011 boxing day sale. Purchased two games I was interested in that wasn't available for PC, Demon's Souls and Tales of Graces. Bought Final Fantasy XIII and Little Big Planet 2 for $20 each as well, since my brother was interested in those games.

Currently I've got my eye on Atelier Totori, Ni No Kuni and Metal Gear Rising. Took a long time, but waiting was definitely worth it.

I admit I got a 360 first, since its was under $300- As much I wanted PS3, I could in no way justify a $500-600 console purchase.

Once 09 hit though, slim ps3 was out under $299, and it because apparent that MS was forcing Kinect down our throats and abandoning core gamers other than Halo/Gears, I had no problem selling the 360 and all my games and getting all the Sony exclusives I missed, as I realized I wouldn't miss anything by doing so (my gaming life isn't defined by online FPS).

Haven't regretted switching up since.

I'm just hoping Sony keeps ps4 affordable, or it will be a mid to late gen adoption for me again.

Got PS3 at launch because it was fully b/c with PS1/PS2....

Will wait for PS4 because it isnt b/c with PS3/PSN at all & there's plenty of new PS3/PSN games I'll want (Dark Souls 2, GTA5, Diablo 3 to name a few) & plenty of current/older ones I missed that I also want to play....

I'm thinking maybe a yr after launch....should be a price drop by then & a good selection of PS4 games.

I got my first PS3 in February 2008. I'm going to wait until I see the price of the PS4 before I decide when to purchase one.
