Post all the PS you ever owned until its demise/present

#1MGS4SNAKEPosted 3/6/2013 12:27:14 PM
PS - Only owned one, with one controller got it late 98, sold it for $100, including 40+games in 2001 after trying out the PS2 in a college dorm, regretted selling the games when I discovered PS games were playable.

PS2 - owned a couple, my first which I got in early 02 only lasted 3 months, it got stolen. My 2nd lasted for 6 years, the last controller started to show faulty signs, a few weeks later so did the PS2. R.I.P (still own the games). Owned four controllers, my sister's dog bit off the first 2 cords, the third I smashed lol, the 4th died out.

PS3 - 80G early 09, still strong, so far 2 controllers passed away, the first someone spilled tea on it, 2nd started malfunctioning after a few drops as well as twisting it a few times, now i'm using my 3rd, taking it easy.

What about you?

PS1 (96') It was working for as long as I had it aside from turning it upside down so CGI movies weren't choppy
PS2 (02') As of 06' the laser no longer reads discs except my HDD Loader disc. Got about 20 games backed up still.
PS2 (06') Bought the slim from a friend who needed the money so I could continue playing online
PSP (06') Original-1001 Bought it from my neighbor who "found" it . The X button and UMD stopped working...used for parts
PSP (10') Slim-2001 Bought this from another friend who had a PSP GO. I use it for emulators mainly
PS3 (07') 60GB Fat worked up until Jun 09' when it YLOD on me.
PS3 (09') Slim 250GB. The laser died back in November. Replaced the lens and works beautifully. Upgraded to 1TB HDD
PS Vita (12') Love this little system. Just wish it had more games that I LIKE!

Please keep in mind, though I mention modding in my post, it is not something I currently do or would ever do again. I was like 13 when I did it. For reference I'm 28 now.



1996 PS1 (#1) - Was doing good, until the day I bought a Japanese gameshark with defective prongs to play a burned imported game, plugged it in to the back and fried the whole system.

1999 PS1 (#2) - I think I still have it stored in the attic but I'm not sure. Admittedly modchipped it, was stupid and tried the gameshark again, luckily only breaking the back port this time. Will still read discs when propped on it's side, weak laser track due to pepsi spill >_>


2002 PS2 (#1) - Lasted the entire time until it was traded in 2008 for a PS3, also modchipped it.

2009+ PS2 (#2,3 and 4) - Were all given to me for free by people who didn't want it and assumed I did, all promptly traded in.


PS3 2008 (#1) - 80GB BC, Worked great until it cooked in 2011, my fault for not cleaning it, although the only reason I didn't was because I was afraid I'd break it.

2012 PS3 (#2) - 160GB Slim, Works great, much better taken care of.


Edit: Oh, and I had a PSP at some point but I didn't like it and returned it for refund.

PS3- 2007. Co-worker of mine sold me his 60GB, and it went the same way most of the launch systems have been going. Picked one of the slim models a couple years ago, and that's still running strong. 178 games in this collection.
