Yep, I’m late to the party but I’ve finally bought a PS3.
It was my birthday at the weekend and I requested money or Amazon vouchers – these were then put towards the PS3 purchase. That was ordered Saturday night and should be arriving today or tomorrow. I’ve already made a space on the shelf under the TV 😉
I’ve also ordered an assortment of games and accessories – more on that in another post.
Now, one limitation I have is that I do indeed live in the dark ages (or so you’d think) as I still have a CRT, so it’s not HD. However, it is a rather good CRT and has component inputs, so I’m hoping that the PS3 image via that will be sufficient.
And I’m fully prepared too – I downloaded the PS3 manual to my Creative ZiiO tablet last week and read it from front to back. I love the fact that Sony are not happy for you to be able to change the hard drive yourself but give you detailed instructions on how to do it – other manufacturers should take note!
From what I can tell, it appears to do everything – gaming, video rental, watch catch-up TV… with an Eye-toy attached (or whatever they now call it) I’m surprised Skype haven’t even got in on the act – international long distance calls from your PS3 sounds an excellent idea!
Once I’ve got it I’m sure there will a lot more content about the PS3 coming the way to this blog!
