My ps experience happened on ebay. I really wanted a ps3 so bad that I buy a broken one, and have it repaired for a low price. I ended up buying one for $300. The seller I brought it from said that nothing was showing up on the screen when he hooked it up, so that his reason for selling it. I purchased and before I could send it to a repair shop, I call sony customer service to see if there was anything they could do. That day made me the happiest person, cause I was told that the seller didn't know how to switch componet cables to hdmi and that why nothing showed up on the screen. The sony help talked me throught the step of getting a picture and it work, that was the day I fell in love with the ps3. At that time the cost of the ps3 was too expansive, so I ended up paying for a low price 60gb ps3. In great condition I might add, and that's my playstation story.
It was early days of april 2011, my brother had came from Melbourne, Australia after completing his studies. He bought gifts for all the members including me. He had bought t-shirts and denim for me. I was equally happy with it. Slowly slowly days were passing. I was wondering "for me only tees and denims and mobile's and i-pods for every one" i was sad at wondering these things then after some days the day came when i entered the world 19th of April. At 12:00 am of 19th april all started calling me then suddenly my brother tied a black cloth around my eyes and took me to the hall And then what i saw was more than a dream IT WAS A PS3 WITH FIFA 2011 AND MANY OTHER GAMES. I was shocked and my heat was pumping like its going to pop out. I WAS THE HAPPIEST PERSON ALIVE AT THAT MOMEN. This experience of my I can never forgett
It was a boring day in my summer holiday, I was just sitting about, scouring the internet for nothing in particular, being on skype with some friend from school and playing a bit of Disgea 3 on my Ps Vita.
When things turned very interesting for me.
Back story: I have always been a fan of Playstation products, had several PSP's and got the PS Vita When it came out, but never got to buying a ps3, and I don't know why, till that day.
So I was chatting with that friend, let's call him robo, when his brother entered his room, I could hear them talking and the brother of robo sounded very excited, he said: "guess what! I've won a second hand Ps3 from work!".
So I joined the conversation by saying:" HEYYY give me that!" and then the conversation turned very interesting for me.
We talked about the ps3's state, that there is something wrong with it, but robo and the brother didn't know what, so I told them I would be very interested in that ps3 if they didn't want it. (since they already owned a ps3)
Later (a few hours) I heard what the issue was with the Ps3, it was an older generation ps3, but worked fine, the only thing was that the ps3's bluray drive had a bit of an issue.
I told them I didn't mind, and then somehow, we agreed that I would get that ps3 for free!!!
So a few days later I went to robo's city (still 3 hours train ride away) and picked it up.
I got the ps3 at home, tested it and got an controller from an other friend, and after 2 weeks I repaired the bluray drive by buying a new one and I was good to go!
I am still very grateful for those friend and fate for getting me this p3, and I enjoy it every moment!
This was my playstation story, and I hope you like it.
It was about early summer when I told myself I am finaly going to get a PS3. Through hard work and chores, I finally got it about 2 weeks ago. I have to say it is amazing and worth every minute I spent getting it.
