Re: PS3 Questions

May 23, 2011

It sucks when you gotta rely on your parents i know I'm almost 19 and still live with my dad, not for financial reasons really just because he had 2 extra rooms open and why pay rent on my own place when i can just stay in a room in his home for free. But yeah when i was younger asking my dad for games was so difficult....lol he would only buy me like 2 games a year max and only like 20 to 30 dollar ones. but when i hit 18 i finally got a job and made a little bit of money i got fired after like 2 months for getting in a fight with the boss but i didnt wanna stay there anyway, so i had to pay off all my gaming debts to my dad and other people, and gave my dad some rent money anyway, and luckily had enough to left over after all that to buy a PS3, a few games, and a 32 inch TV, haven't had a job since it really sucks that I'm stuck with old boring games and i will never trade in to gamestop for their failure 50 cents a game.

Well, jobs here where I live are hard to come by, but my father and mother said they would help (of course, I would have to pay it back) with buying it, but it can't be in a week because of a shortage of money. I understand, I'm an extremely patient person (waiting since the PS3 was released). Its a fabulous deal at Target, one I know I'm going to regret missing out on, but it seems I have no choice xD

But its so worth it. I can't wait to hook the PS3 up and play M.A.G, a game that looks bloody brilliant to me

Its too bad one game, whatever you want, can't be put in with the bundle lol

@Garyxyz851:

500$ Smiley Surprised That's a lot of cash...I've never heard of Sound City before though.

That's another game I want. Dragon Age looks amazing

@dosel123:

Ah, I understand now. Sorry about that (I am Dyslexic ) xD

If you can hold out until this holiday, I bet you will be able to buy a used PS3 for close to $100 when GameStop runs one of their promotions...

If the deal at Target runs out, I suppose I would have to wait until then

I'm hoping, by some miracle, I can make the Target deal.

As I said before, it is better to wait to get what you want rather than rushing to buy what you can. First you'll regret it, second you are more likely to spend more than you would otherwise. So just be patient and save save. The good thing about waiting is every game you might want now will cost a whole lot less, even less used!

Great work PD so far, keep the DLC coming!

@smstevenms:

Well I thought the Target deal was a great deal?

@Logical_Dolphin:

Unfortantly I don't...I live in a small town and have to drive out 3-4 hours to the a Target, Wal-Mart, Gamestop etc etc. http://www.laymark.com/i/m/m003.gif

My parents would kill me if I bought a refurbished system. The last time we did, we got DS systems from Gamestop and Wal-mart and they were trashed. My mother was very angry lol
