I've put a lot of effort in to get me a PlayStation. As of this date I am 16. I've grown up with PlayStation and Sony for as long as I can remember. I wish I could remember the PS1 but I was too young at the time to remember. I DO remember my first PS2 though. My mother's friend walked into my living room and unwrapped this beautiful machine I've been so anxious to get. Ever seen that video of that kid gettin a N64 on Christmas morning? Give that kid an ear height smile, put him about 5 feet in the air, and picture him high-fiving the great gods of all that is good as bright heaven-like lights direct his eyes on his new source of genuine entertainment. That was me on the day I got that PS2. Sadly I had to share it with my two brothers. So many battles recorded into history from fighting over who plays next. About 6 more years of that and by golly gee another playstation peers into my excited soul. Imagine the description I previously explained but amplified. I lack the vocabulary to explain the grace that took place as the new PlayStation3 and I fell in love. Had to share that with my brothers too! So I got inspiration from a friend. He had his own room with a TV and a PS2. He didn't share with anybody! I actually helped him out with gettin his own PS3 to stick in his room. After that, I analyzed all that was before me in his room and was purely jealous from the fact that I did not have my own PlayStation in my room to share with nobody. So I started mowing this old lady's lawn. 20 bucks a month, during the summer. I did that for 2 summers, puttin money towards a new PS3. And I did it. After 7th grade in the summer, I had me a 120gb PS3 slim. Never have I felt hard earned money spent more well (considering my age at the time). All I had for display was a little black tube TV. So I made more money by mowing more lawns and got me a good TV! this continued on from 7th grade to now (Sophomore year) and now I have 2 TV's, surround sound, and a beautiful 120gb Slim PS3, the same one I bought in 7th grade. PlayStation filled me with the desire to get my own PlayStation, which drove me to work for something I really wanted. PlayStation actually taught me how good it feels and how rewarding it is to work hard for something you really want. Now when I want something I dont't beg my parents for it. I try to gather my own money for it or at least work off my debts to repay. Not only is the PlayStation a great console with the greatest exclusives to offer, but it actually taught me a valuable lesson and in a way made me a better more responsible person. My name is Steven, I prefer PlayStation over all other consoles, and am proud to have worked for and own one.
