PS3 - It's Mine...Hands Off!

There's some things you just don't do in life. One of those things is lending out your precious PS3.

If you own a PS3 - you know what I'm talking about. Can you imagine the horrible things that could happen to your cell processor when it falls into the wrong hands?

I shudder at the thought." (PS3)

Wonder why you are a prestigious memeber of the one bubble club? /S

Scientific experiments
have proven that licking PS3 in N4G is good for your health. LOL.

However, no experiements have ever proven that smoking is bad for your health.

Seemly off-topic, but if you really think about it, it's not.

It's a spoof of the movie rush hour with jackie chan and chris tucker... "You never touch a black man's radio"

Sony needs to get rid of that angry jackass before he puts Sony out of the console market. No one wants to see some angry clown forcing you to buy PS products, people already think the PS base is angry enough. Sony should have spent more time showing games built from the ground up for Move then patching traditional games with Move support and desperately attacking Kinect(PR and E3)

JoeReno  +   1719d ago

How ironic...

Cooled dead hands
comes to mind, in regards to giving my PS3 to some "so called friend". And if they where friends they will own their own.

this is funny
This is funny stuff but i fails to see how can this be posted as news on NEWS 4 Gamer.

Its just some rants about someone pointing the obvious that some "people" need to wake up.

What an awesome article. I feel the same way. I went on vacation to Florida to stay with some friends and he wanted me to bring my PS3 with me because he only had an xbox and wanted to play Uncharted and God of War. I also said "Hell to the NO!" I didn't want my PS3 getting thrown around during my flight. I thought about bringing it as a carry on so that I would be the one handling it but I didn't trust myself either.

"I thought about bringing it as a carry on so that I would be the one handling it but I didn't trust myself either" ROFL!!

Let him borrow it
I can understand that you don't want anything to happen to the system. But let him borrow it, so he can see how good of a system it is.

Spread the word, the rest of the world knows it already... America is just slow in everything. (And I live here)
metalanime  +   1719d ago
"Hell to the no" has to be one of the stupidest things ive ever heard.

I can't believe this is news.
Tuxmask55  +   1719d ago
It's not news. It's an editorial piece (aka an article).

I still have my big shiny fatty with backwards compatibility and 4 usb ports... if it breaks I'd cry.. do they even repair those anymore or do they just ship you a slim? lol
Dragonfodder  +   1719d ago
LULZ! I think I'd also be very nervous about lending my PS3, even if it was to a friend... Heck, I don't think I'd want to lend my 360 either! I love those toys. :)

HA! My friend once asked me if he could borrow my ps3 to play mgs4. I had a "wtf are you talking about?" face on for a week.
Tuxmask55  +   1719d ago
How about he just goes over to your place to play it.
Baka-akaB  +   1719d ago
Not a ps3 thing , i'm not in the habit of letting people borrow my consoles , ever .
Dark-Cloud  +   1719d ago
don't be selfish guys , they are friends :( ... i want to give it to my friend to try the best games in ps3 but he don't want to XD ....
even if the console broke u can buy another one but u can't buy real friends ( if u have one ) it's really hard to find a real friend , most of people are selfish now :( ...
Baka-akaB  +   1719d ago
to each their own , i have friends , great ones , some are still slobs leaving finger prints on discs (something i dislike even when not damaging to the discs) .

Some like to leave everything on all day long , and with the discs inside , wich i avoid if not playing or actually using the console .

And at least in my area power surges or outage are common some parts of the year (like now) , and hardly everyone got
their consoles hooked up on a UPS like i do .

I'm happy to share all of my game on disc or digital version with them , or having them over , but that's it

Good thing my friends prefer to play on my TV,and have never asked to borrow any of my game consoles...because I wouldn't give them in the first place.I'm also lending of my games and controllers.People tend to mishandle discs more than hardware.
d3nworth1  +   1719d ago
I loaned my cousin my ps2 once. When I went to get it. He had his shoes on it and there were coffee rings on it. My poor ps2 was a mess thank god it worked find but it stinks of coffee. It'll be a cold day in he'll before he ever lays a hand on my ps3.
saint_seya  +   1719d ago
my friends know me good enough, so they aovid that... but i let them play on my house, when im using my pc, but i change the blu rays..
kasasensei  +   1719d ago
The last time i lent a console, it never returned. The son of my exgf lent it to one of his friends and the guy went back in his original country with it. Poland....
