I was born playing the PS1, grew up with the PS2 along with my PSP, and now with my PS3 with a potential buy for the Vita. I just love Playstation.
I'm an otaku, gamer, and writer. Love these things and I don't care if you don't.

There were many reasons:

* I wanted the best version of any Final Fantasy games on the console, so far that gives me the superior version of FFXIII and confirmation for FFXIV:ARR.

* I'm not paying for online play if it's not an MMO.

* I wanted a controller that's good for fighting games. No, the 360's controller dpad is garbage, if you google any opinion on the 360 dpad you'll know so.

* I wanted to play Valkyria Chronicles. Then came Uncharted and InFamous too.

* I wanted a reliable console.

Couple reasons:
-I'm a sucker for Greek mythology and God of War delivers.
-I never owned a PS2 and the PS3 has the collections of older games.
-Way to play multiplats that aren't on PC

I chose third-party games. The price had recently dropped to $299 and I did enjoy the PS2 quite a bit.

When an American company threw their hat in the console race, I would have happily bought one-until it was said that it was Microsoft. I saw hardware issues coming from a mile away.

Nintendo started losing me with the 64, but I idiotically gave them not one, but two more chances. I know there are more than kid/party games on Wii, but I've "outgrown" Nintendo.
Gamecube didn't seem to offer a whole lot to me either.
Maybe video games should cost less than 20 million and take less than 3 years to make. Because $60 a pop is some b*******!

I got it for its exclusives and so I can play my backlog of PS2 games, I was fortunate enough to get one of the last MGS4 bundles in my area, otherwise I wouldn't have ever bothered with a PS3.

Because I was stupid.
I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.
