On one September, 17, 2009 afternoon and after wrapping up my campus ventures, my mother gave me a ride back home. Before we did, I planned to purchase my PS3 Slim (a few weeks after the model revision announcement) at the local Walmart. Then LittleBigPlanet at our local Kmart given the Game of the Year edition was only seen there at the time.
My experience with the PlayStation brand was a late-in-the-party sort of fashion. Starting with PSP in 2005 and then PS2 a year or two afterward, it wasn’t until late 2008 and E3 2009 that my interest in the console went up. Even though my interest in The Last Guardian has been long gone since, it didn’t affect my still-ongoing enjoyment of Sony’s 3rd console. Heck, I played some Dark Souls II last night whilst working on my Alucard build. That and the above image was done in the first LittleBigPlanet (again, first PS3 game purchase) a day prior to this post. (Weird how I’m aware LBP’s basics re: Create Mode after my last time using it via its sequel. Took me a few hours due to perfectionism but whatever.) *heh*
As far as Generation 7 goes, it’s undoubtably my favorite video game-specific hardware with Wii at second and Xbox 360 in last. Speaking of the latter, I eventually sold that console to a relative less than a year after due to my ongoing activity with PS3 and Wii software-wise.
I’ll eventually (maybe sooner than anticipated in my case) transition to the PS4, especially considering Bloodborne and such (which ironically From Software’s previous IP, Demon’s Souls, were one of the few games to convince me of my PS3 investment that year). That also means I’ll have to buy those damn PS Plus membership cards if I want to play said games online. Even though I have a PS Plus membership as of this post, lol.
Anywho, that was my retrospective on PlayStation The Third. Until next five.
