Intro to the Sony PlayStation 3

Sony PlayStation 3 PS3

In a moment of weakness, I borke down and bought a PS3 when GameStop was having a rare hardware sale. The Blu-ray inclusion is nice and I'd been wanting to play some of the more heralded titles. As a retro gamer, I have to say the PS3 generated the least excitement, as far as purchasing a new gaming console, that I can remember.

Buying the NES, SNES and Atari Jaguar were exciting and memorable purchases. Picking up a PS3 felt more like a mandatory endeavor. I was stoked to play the latest cutting edge games, but it's sophistication was well beyond the 8-bit games that really get me pumped up to play. Even the Wii's Virtual Console makes me feel connected to the era of games I adore.
