still remember when I laughed at my friend who bought it for 700 bucks and had no games to play for like a year... while I bought mine two years ago for like 200 and now have played more games than he has... hahahhaa

@ da_2pacalypse

You shouldn't really laugh at you friend. Early adopters helped keep the PS3 relevant during those first few years after it launched. But, if your friend bought one today for 700, then he deserves to be laughed at.

I remember when George W issued a free stimulus check in the mail to me for $600. I decided to stimulate the economy by purchasing myself a PS3. Best day EVER!

My launch PS3 bundle came to $800.

I'll be grabbing a PS4 at launch as well... no matter the cost.

Hearing about the US launch and feeling the pain of the European delay (and later UK price). Still, was worth the wait, and worth every penny.

Got mine a year later. K-Mart had 60-giggers knocked down to $500, and I had a 20% off coupon that worked for any item in the store. $400 for an unused 60-gig PS3? The winner is me.

I remember when I got my first PS3 It was Aug 6th 2007 at 1030pm just came off of work from my summer job at Home Depot. I got it as an anniversary gift. Best gift I've ever gotten and is used daily and frequently when I have time.

It was an uphill battle but the PS3 has become the best system to have this gen! No doubt about that!
