How long have you had your PS3?

#1 Posted by Qorious (847 posts) -

I bought my PS3 around June of 2008. Around the same time as when MGS4 came out. I was originally going to buy the MGS4 bundle but everywhere I went it was sold out, so I settled for the 40GB version and just picked up MGS4 along with it. I guess I've had it for around 9 months now. How about you guys? How long have you had your PS3?

February 2007.  60GB.  Went into a Gamestop and they had it, so I figured why not (because I wanted one anyways, but I wasn't willing to deal with launch BS).

It broke a while ago, sent it in to Sony, paid $150 to get it fixed.  I see this thread taking that direction so I figured I'd add this.

2 years, I think?  I have one of the launch 60gb systems, but I've already had to switch it out with a 320gb HDD.  Runs Great!!

Got it a month before they did that temporal price cut to the 60gb.  played mostly ps2 games on it: Odin sphere / Grimgrimoire / persona 3. Until i bought NG sigma.

Dec. 2006. Just happened to walk by a bunch of ones being put out at Wal-Mart, and a few days before Christmas no less! Glad I got a fully backwards compatible one before Sony started their current schenanagins.

I got one when talk started to circulate that they were going to stop making the 60 gig/backward compatible editions...I think it was early 2007.

My dad brought me a jewpanase 40 gig

#23 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

Early 2008 ish I think. The only game I had until MGS4 came out was COD4.....oh and Turok which I never played.

#24 Posted by Gunrock (147 posts) -

Christmas 06 got the 60gb model, strong as ever.

June 2008 - MGS4 Bundle

#26 Posted by bombHills (632 posts) -

not quite a year. I bought the MGS4 bundle they day it was released.

#27 Posted by DevilishSix (102 posts) -

Got my 60gb in April 2007.  I will be honest here and say I prefer playing multiplatform games on X360 (my friends list is better and most everyone has a mic).  Also the X360 controller feels more comfortable to me.  My wife even didn't like PS3 controller after I down loaded Zuma for her on the PS3 because I wanted to take the X360 with me to play in my hotel room last week when I was out of town on business.  Her exact words were "I am having trouble stretching my thumb over to the left stick".  I agree the analog sticks make your thumbs have to conform in an unnatural way.

I do like the PS3 exclusives...KZ2 is great and hopefully GOW3 is off the charts sick.

RIP MGS4 Bundle
June 2008 - February 2009
Hours of Use: 20 hours

Did it die? No. I sold it.

#32 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2134 posts) -

I bought mine the summer after release.  So yeah, summer of 2006.  I was going to buy it, but I was personally waiting for a price drop.

But then a deal came along with a launch 60 gig PS3, an extra six axis controller and Resistance for 599.99 I think.  So it was a free game and control pad for what the console costs.  Plus I bought into it because I needed BC!  I love my 60 gig PS3!

Desperately need some new games though.

#34 Posted by Tearhead (2241 posts) -

I got mine when CoD4 came out, which was November 6th, 2007. That would make mine 1 year and 4 months old. ...They grow up so fast =')

#35 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

I got it last X-Mas. It is pretty awesome but I use it primarily as a Blu-Ray player.

Hunted down the increasingly rare MGS4 PS3 bundle (for the backwards compatibility more than anything else) in about August 2008.
