The PS3 Is A Sexy Chick Magnet
You may laugh. You may scoff. You may consider this a lame attempt by a Sony fansite (and the second the word "fansite" escapes your lips, we beat you to a bloody pulp with a crowbar) to promote the PlayStation 3. You might think it's a weird little opinion piece designed to be charmingly unique and appealing...well, perhaps the latter is true.
We all know that ladies are starting to become more involved with gaming with every passing year, but if you're currently on the dating scene or have already scored the fabulous filly, you need a console that gels with the relationship. And while one could make arguments for the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, one has to look at the bigger picture. Check it out; the best reasons why the PS3 is the perfect chick magnet. No, seriously.
Blu-Ray = Johnny Depp in perfect high-def
Look, even though the man is typically the tech fiend in any given relationship, everyone can appreciate the best of the best in terms of video visuals. Special effects and slam-bang action movies aren't the only types of films that benefit from something like Blu-Ray; the chick flicks will jerk twice the number of tears when viewed in high definition. The male hunks are even more in-your-face (and more annoying for the boyfriend). At the end of the day, every couple will enjoy a Blu-Ray player, and the PS3 is not only the best one on the market according to recent statistics, it has got plenty more to offer...
Playing online DOESN'T cost us anything extra, dear!
Girlfriends and wives have long since bemoaned the fact that playing video games online incurs an extra cost, and when there's two people involved with the bills, it can be a sore topic of conversation. In the case of the PS3, not only is it completely free, but you can peruse the PlayStation Store free of charge as well...and that means showing your girl games like Magic Ball, Lumines Supernova and more. You know, those little puzzle games that remind her of the Flash games she plays at work when she's bored. Those cost money, yes, but it costs nothing to look, and when she knows you're online, she knows it can't be considered a paid luxury.
The Dual Shock 3 fits her cute hand better
Oh, don't get all offended, ladies; it's a compliment! While the 360's S controller is certainly smaller than the original Xbox controller, it's still larger than the Dual Shock 3. Furthermore, there's all that motion sensing that comes along with it - "see honey, the Wii isn't the only system that lets you move your hands around" - and the girl may even find it familiar. Let's face it: even if she has never been a gamer, there are hundreds of millions of PlayStation consoles around the world, and therefore, hundreds of millions of controllers. There's a darn good chance she has laid hands on a Sony gamepad at least once in her life, and yep, they're all designed exactly the same. Win, win, win.
Black goes with everything
The PS3 is a sexy machine, and a sleek black piece of electronic equipment is always easy on the eyes. It's never an eyesore and while the white of the 360 and Wii can draw attention, the PS3 fits beautifully in any dark-colored entertainment center. It also goes with most televisions, pieces of stereo equipment, and even furniture, so if your girl is into the whole interior decorating thing, the PS3 is perfect. True, it's a larger, heavier unit but once it's in place, it blends quite nicely. You may not give a rat's ass what the thing looks like or if it clashes with its surroundings, but then again, you also didn't know that cranberry "looked good on you." That is, until she told you.
There you have it. The PS3 is one helluva sexy chick magnet, isn't it?
