PSXE Says: List Your Unwrapped Loot
Okay, so it's the day after Christmas and many of you probably had a few video-game related items on your lists. So how did things go? Santa bring you everything you wished for? Or if you're of another faith, how'd the holidays go? Playing the new game(s) already? Get a shiny new console?
You know, this may seem aimless and posted purely for the sake of fun, but it would help us to know what our readers enjoy, and which of them owns PS3s or PSPs or both; this type of feedback can ultimately benefit you in the long run. ...yeah, that's a pile of crap. We just wanna know what you got. ;) For my part, I unwrapped the Limited Edition of Prince of Persia, Gears of War 2, enough gift cards to go most of the way towards buying either Fable II or Left 4 Dead, and oh yeah, a new Silver PS2. The reason for this is simple- at some point, I may have to get a new PS3 (maybe it breaks, maybe I need the extra HDD space, whatever), and when that happens, I will no longer be able to play PS2 games. None of the new PS3s have backwards compatibility as that feature is gone forever, and besides, after playing PS2 software on my 60GB PS3, I've realized the playback isn't 100% perfect. For example, a lot of the games have some small sound issues; I just beat Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and the drop-offs in sound effects got annoying. Hence, my new PS2, where any and all of my 60 PS2 games will play perfectly.
It currently sits on the bottom shelf below the PS3 in my entertainment center, on the opposite side of the 360. Speaking of which, I've been lucky enough to have a very reliable 360 so far but if that RRoD crap pops up when I go to play Gears...pissed off, I will be. Anywho, I got a bunch of other stuff, too - the entire complete boxed set of "Calvin and Hobbes," cologne, clothes, "The Dark Knight" on Blu-Ray, some CDs and DVDs like "American Psycho," and way too much candy, for instance - but it's your turn now.
