    How Much Did You Purchase Your PlayStation 3 For and How Many Games Do You Own?

    I bought the original 60GB for $1000 in Australia, which YLOD'd in September this year. I received a 120GB PS3 free from Sony last year for developing TV cards for them, which I am currently using.

    I currently have 18 PS3 games and am getting another few in December - January.
    PSN/Steam ID is Icaraeus / 2 PS3s - 60GB 1st Gen YLOD'd 7 years, | 120GB Slim, 22 Games + Ton of Extras / PS4 500GB + 14 Games/ $1200 SuperPC since Feb14

    $600, back in '06. Then once Sony stopped servicing that model, I sent it in to be repaired, they just sent me a slim model for the charge. So that's about $675, all together.

    As for games, around 75ish on disk, and whatever I have and have had from PSN.

    I spent around $350-$400 CDN on a 160GB (I believe) and I have 10 on disc games and about 10+ full PSN games.

    I bought my 40 GB for whatever they cost when they came out, I want to say $600, but I honestly forget.

    As for PS3 games. My list has 183 games on it, between disc and PSN titles I probably still own over 100 of those, too lazy to count.

    I bought my 160GB PS3 back in 08' for $265. I currently own the new super slim 250GB PS3 because I traded.

    My trophy list says I've owned 105 games but I currently own 8 games because I sold most of them, I regret that.

    I paid $300 for my 80 GB PS3 (which included Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and Killzone 2, for no additional price ) back in 2009, just months before they announced the PS3 Slim.

    I have no idea how many games I own; I am going to guess around 20.

    PS3 wasn't launched in Oz until March '07. I picked up my first Fat 60 GB at Xmas '07 for the grand total of $0, but my wife forked out $700 for it at Big W. By that stage they'd been replaced by the 80 GB model so it was a challenge to track down a launch Fatty.

    Second Fatty came free with a Bravia 40" in mid '08, I gave it to the parents-in-law. Third Fatty came free with a Bravia 52" in late '08, kept it. Both the 60 and 80 Fats have since died, but I replaced the 60 with a refurb from Sony in '09 which cost me $250.

    First Slim 120 cost about $350 in '10. I picked up a Slim 250 for $240 a few months ago and second Slim 120 a week ago for $190 to replace the recently dead Fat 80.

    Currently, there are 3 Slims and one Fatty in the house. Two are used as DVD / Blu-Ray players and for audio / video streaming from a NAS. For $200 it's pretty hard to beat a PS3 as a media centre. The other two are for gaming - one for me, one for the kids.

    Speaking of games...close to 600 PS3 discs and PSN titles combined and every peripheral device and accessory you can think of for the PS3. I went a bit silly this generation to make up for a wayward past (Yo Ho!). Most of the PS3 discs were $20 - $25 a pop and a third of them were bought for my kids to play as they grow up over the next 10 years, so it ain't that bad.

    I've been gaming since '78, have worked on the interwebs since '97 and have always loved computers, peripherals, gadgets, gaming and shiny metal things, so my house is pretty much a shrine to technology.

    I dropped $300 on my first PS3 which lasted a little less than 2 years. I grabbed my second one a a Black Friday special last year for $199 (it came with two games - LittleBigPlanet 2 and R&C All 4 One.

    As far as games go, I don't want to think of how much I spent. If memory serves, I own a little over 50 disc games, all but 2 of which were bought brand new, and then around 20 psn games, various add on dlcs, plus my PS+ membership I've had since the first day it came out. There is also GameFly and Blockbuster that I've had one or the other just about every month for about 3 years.

    I also dropped $150 on a nice wireless headset.

    I bought my 150GB Slim in 2010 for 25,000. I should had waited until now to buy one because they are 19,000 now. I own 33 games but trying to get that number down towards 10.

    I bought a 250 Gig slim model when FFXIII first came out, I think around April of 2010? for $300 I believe. As for games, I haven't counted them in a long time but I would say I have close between 120 to 150 retail games and between 150 to 200 PSN titles.

    700$ for the old one and about 500-600 for the newer one, damn Sony bastards.
    I have a lot of games.
    I may come off as rich, but I am definitely not. (not poor though) I should stop talking.
    I buy games every couple of months, not every week.

    I bought the 320gb model for 250 and gave my 80gb to my brother so he could watch blue ray dvds on it. I have almost 50 games on disc and a further 13 on digital. I love my ps3.
    Thanks to xEl Cidx for my awesome Avy and Sig.

    For me trophies have become an integral part of gaming, like a stereo in a car. Is it really necessary? No. Is it a lot more fun with it though? Hell yeah!
