All About sprinter6
Hello all, I just wanted to take a second now to congratulate the Playstation for it's 15th Anniversary mark, I'm glad to celebrate a console that was extremly playable at the time, and continues to be the same way today. A truly remarkable system that changed video games forever.
Now that I've finally got my hands on my own PS3(60 gig model), it feels great to have Playstation in my life again, with a damaged PS2, and not being in the mood to play PS games up until just within the past few weeks, I was losing grip with my long time friend.
So again, congratuations on the success of the Playstation, and hats off to you Sony in your future endeavors.
What's goin' on everyone, so it's a been a few weeks since I've made a new blog post and it's definitely time.
So I am a new adopter of a 60 gig model, and unfortunately, I don't know all that much about Playstation 3's yet. I've borrowed a slim before, so I understand navigation, and the rather subpar online interface compared to that Xbox Live, however I don't have anything to play yet!
Does anyone care to educate me on any neat tricks with the PS3? Or would like to point me in the direction of some free content?
I'm also interesting in trying the Gamesharing if I'm using the right term there.
Let me know if anyone has anything to contribute, thank you guys.
If you read my last post from about 2 days ago, then you'll know that I was excited about the Pawn Shop just across the road from my house getting some new N64 games that were dirt cheap. Well that was Thursday, it's Saturday now, and some of those good deals went out from under my nose.
However, I did manage to get another copy of F-Zero X for the 64, for 2 bucks, my other copy has a damaged label sticker, as well as Quest 64 for 2 bucks as well. After some contemplation, I also picked up 3 Xbox games, Halo: Combat Evolved(I've already beaten Halo, and own a copy of Halo PC, but I really wanted the Xbox version) which was $3, as well as Grabbed by the Ghoulies another $3 and Dead to Rights for $3. All three came complete with cases and manuals, and they all have reasonable wear and tear, but that's alright, that's why there are professional buffer systems.
I was really considering getting Condemned 2:Bloodshot for the Xbox 360, which they had for $5, but I thought maybe I should try and by that one retail so they could actually get my money. However, I end up spending that $5.
Upon leaving I was eyeing up the speaker section, and asked if they had a subwoofer for a surround sound setup that uses a Pre-Sub Out. They didn't have one on their shelves, but offered to look in the back for me to see if they had one that wasn't entered into the system yet. Thankfully I was in luck, the first one they brought out had all these weird connections, proprietary stuff, and I wouldn't ahve been able to use that, but the second one they brought out, a decent quality Sony model with a Line and and Line out RCA, as well as L+R speaker cable out connectors. He told me $5 cash, no receipt, buy it no returns.
For $5 bucks it really wasn't a risk, took it home and ba-da-boom, working subwoofer.
Later, after going out to a thrift store looking for some goodies, I spent about 9 dollars on 3 pairs of cargo shorts, a pair of swim trunks, and a T-shirt, I decided I'd head home and stop at the Half-Price Bookstore, in between my house and my grilfriend's house which is where I was leaving from.
At the Half-Price Books I got 5 more games. First, three near mint condition Dreamcast games, all priced at $1; Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge, F-1 World Grand Prix, and a second copy of Slave Zero, except this one was complete, my other copy only had the game and manual. Additionally I got 2 PC games, Baldur's Gate II:Throne of Baal, which is the expansion to Baldur's Gate II:Shadows of Amn for $2 as well as Red Faction II, which was also 2 bucks.
Needless to say, I spent about $25 bucks today (excluding my clothing purchase) and got 10 games and a rather nice Sony subwoofer.
I think I made off pretty good.
