Passing Up Playstation 3

December 13th, 2006 . by Josh

So yesterday I was offered a Sony Playstation 3, apparently with two games for $650-$700 or so.

Is it a good price? Yes, of course. I unlike most of the internet, and my fellow Playgasm writers can justify buying a $600 console. How? Think of it as a investment for the future, it has a lot of new (yes albeit unproven) technologies inside of it. The console will last the life of a Playstation or Playstation 2, and probably longer.

But does that matter? No not really, not unless the games are there to support this console. Even though the launch list lacked many great games, honestly no console has great launch games.  Get over it people.

As I sit here at work, listening to the NESKimos, all I can tell you is that I turned this console down at this time, not because of the price, or the brand, or even the failure of the advertising name behind the brand, but ultimately it's because of the lack of games for it right now.  I'm a gamer, I just want to play games, not worry about who's name is on the box.

I'll get a Playstation 3 people, but on my own time, and only when the games I want for it are out.
