Pooh and I were thinking of getting a PS3 for Christmas this year. We randomly decided to get one today instead. :) We figured we might as well buy it now than end up having a hard time getting one during the holiday season madness. We were debating whether or not we should get an Xbox360 or a PS3. Since Pooh’s brother has an Xbox360 that we can always just borrow…we went for a PS3 – plus we were leaning more towards the PS3 anyway. The PS3 is is totally awesome! Of course, we LOVE our Wii, but they are definitely completely different systems that are great in their own way. We still have much to explore on our new console but I’ll definitely post more about it later.
We got the 80Gig Playstation 3 that came with Motor Storm. We didn’t know what game we were going to get first. We originally wanted to get Assassin’s Creed, but we read a lot of great reviews on Uncharted and decided to try it out. We also picked up some HD component cables while we were out. We didn’t know our tv had an HDMI input so we’ll have to pick one up sometime this week.
One cool thing about the PS3 is Remote Play with the PSP. I haven’t been using my PSP much, but being able to view PS3 media via internet (like t-mobile hotspots, etc.) is pretty cool.
We’ll eventually get the Xbox360 later, but we’re very happy with the PS3. :) This reminds me, we have a whole bunch of new games for the Wii that I haven’t blogged about! Keep your eyes open for my next posts on our Wii games!
