CouchMercenaries.com: "I know for every pro I give you to buy a PS3 you can probably come up with a con, But take this for what it is, the ramblings of a PS3 lover who knows that each and every one of you would be happy to own a big shiny black box of your own.

scottmichael3693d ago

first article i read praising the ps3 were the author hasn got his dik stuck in drake from uncharted's mouth

AngryXbot3693d ago

These are 5 very strong reasons.
In reality all bots secretly crave for the power of the Playstation3 console and the incredibly diverse, unique and fresh content that is only available for the PS3 console (where else but on PS3 – found no where else).
But the average bot does not have the dough to buy the most luxurious and powerful hardware console in the world.
That’s where all the hatred comes from.

BoBo33, you dont even want to go there buddy. And define "more valid"?

Every reason given here is valid, its an opinion and people have different ones. Each person has their own prerogative to owning a ps3.

3694d ago
ice_prophecy3694d ago

Of which can be said of any die hard console fan boy.

You can be love one console, without hating on another you know.

arika3694d ago

cokzilla233694d ago

67. Japanese version of FF XIII!!!

BWS19823694d ago (Edited 3694d ago )

for a valid reason to not only bash on a console, but bash on people being MATURE about what they like about something.... OPEN ZONE, very easy to comprehend, your zone is elsewhere. I can't believe that someone actually feels "your systems tech is s**t" is a valid counter argument. Jeebez.
