My PS3, (1st generation 80 gb) finally took a shit on me yesterday. So, off to Game Stop I went. The guy I deal with at my local location is a great guy. Never bullshits me whatsoever. He told me that since my PS3 was so old, it would cost less in the long run to just trade it in rather than fix it.
I figured he'd give me 30-40 bucks for it. Nope, 100 bucks! I couldn't believe it. So I upgraded to a top of the line model for 200 bucks, brand new.
With it came Uncharted 3. I immediately asked him if I could trade it for something I might enjoy, (I've never been into the Tomb-Raider type games). He told me that I should definitely give it a chance and that I didn't need the 1st two games to follow the story line.
I inserted the disc at 5:30 last night and didn't go to bed until almost 2 a.m.
It is an awesome game, the graphics are beautiful and it's like I'm watching Temple of Doom and the Bourne Identity rolled into one.
Like I said, I love sports games, first person shooters and GTA type games but so far, this is the greatest game I've ever played on PS3.
Also, I didn't know what I was missing by playing on that old console. THis new one is 20 times faster and half the size of the old one.
