I actually didn't plan to get the PS3 this early this year but I did plan to get it later this year after a bit more savings in the pocket. However, I was browsing the garage sales board over at Lowyat forums once again and an offer I can't refuse was there. The price, condition and seller location was simply perfect! It is as if the world/universe was telling me to do it and I did.
Thus, I present you, the now Blu-Ray capable entertainment center!
Before this, this PS3 belong to the Lowyat user greyshadow who seems to be more of an Xbox 360 gamer. His PS3 had less attention to the point that it is still shiny to this day! This is one of the earlier units and it is 2 years plus already. If it was a very used unit, I might have not bought it second hand in the first place but considering the condition and everything, it wasn't a bad deal.
FYI, this is the 40GB Japan model. It was bought from Penang initially which was imported from Hong Kong before PS3 became official in Malaysia.
It took me a while to find the right spot to put it in since I planned for a slim model and not the old phat model thus I had troubles placing it nicely.
I was happy to learn that it can connect wireless-ly to the internet unlike the Xbox 360 I have (the new slim model can however) and with the recent restructuring of my house wireless connectivity, this was a pleasant thing to know. :)
I still like how we get nice manuals and nice looking adverts when we buy an original game. :D
This is my first purchase for this year and its pretty big! Since it is planned and second hand, the budget planning continues one, just that the 3DS shall be pushed even further.
Till the next post~
