This strip basically sums up one of the main reasons I would purchase a PlayStation3, and one of the reasons why I remain on the fence.
I bought the 360 for the social element. Now that mine’s in the shopâ€”well not technically, I guess the box to send it to the shop is on its way here, so it’s sitting here being a big, broken piece of plastic and metal in my entertainment centerâ€”not that I burn with a dislike for Target’s warranty policy not unlike that of my preference to avoid Lapsang Souchoung teaâ€”(this is a lot of em dashes) I look upon this strip and think, “You know, you’ve had that PlayStation 2 since 2000, with nary a disc error.”
As I sit here, I consider the wisdom of extolling the virtues of a piece of hardware that has not failed yet, but as you are here reading it, I suppose that I have made that decision already, and the die is cast.Â On the other hand,Â I went through about three PlayStations.Â One of them I had to play with the unit upside down, so that discs would read.
Eye of Judgment is certainly an apt title.Â I would most certainly by judged by others ifÂ I bought a PlayStation 3 to play a collectible card game.
On the other hand, I played Magic: The Gathering so I’m already used to being judged.
