Why did you choose Playstation?

This is a discussion on Why did you choose Playstation? within the General PS3 Discussion forum, part of the Everything PlayStation; My dad bought my PS1 for me when I was 8 or 9. Got a PS2 for the backwards compatibility ...

    My dad bought my PS1 for me when I was 8 or 9. Got a PS2 for the backwards compatibility and ended up being the greatest system of all time. (IMO ) Bought my PS3 for same reason. (Although it is gone now lol)

    Staying with them because:

    I hate the Xbox controller.
    RROD is far more common than YLOD.
    Super Exclusives.

    Lol

    When I heard that the XBOX360 required a fee to play online, my mind was made up.

    not to mention Blu-Ray capability....
    and built in wifi (before XBOX had it)
    and bigger hard drive
    and it was BLACK!!!!
    Extremely busy at the moment. I have not forgotten those that I am helping, so fear not!

    I liked the ps1 over N64,the ps2 over original Xbox,yet this generation of systems i let my friends talk me into getting a 360 at launch.I never really cared for the controllers or the exclusives.So after it screwing up and microsoft fixing it a few times i just said screw it and got the PS3 i knew i should have gotten to begin with.I can't see buying any other console in the future except Sony unless Microsoft is just the clear cut best.

    growing up i always had Sega in my household, between me and my dad we had 2 Megadrives, a Mega CD and a Game Gear, then when the Saturn came out my dad got one, and i loved playing it but it was a dying machine, and i used to play the PS1 round at my mates house too and loved that even more, so my dad got my one for xmas 1997.

    i've been Playstation ever since, and it pisses me off all the sellouts that jumped ship to 360 after the PS2 lol

    I had the Nintendo, and SNES for a long time when I was a boy. I grew up playing games like Resident Evil, MGS, Tombraider, FF, Castelvania, ETC. I followed whichever system that generally supported these, which was the Playstation. It catered to my love for RPG's even more and I have been hooked ever since.

    Before I bought my PS3 I had been a PC player for a decade. I decided to buy the thing solely for Guitar Hero, don't judge me, it would get my then girlfriend wet and wild watching me strumming. Then I realized the system was also a great media center and a Blu-Ray player. First console I bought since the SNES days and enjoy every second while it's turned on.

    My dad introduced me to the Playstation about 11 years ago, and I decided to stick with the Playstations since they always had games I was especially interested in. Plus, I used to get jealous of my friends from school when they talked about their PS3 adventures long before I finally got mine.

    When I was young my cousin brought over his ps1 with FFVII, later he brought a ps2 with kingdom hearts. I figured out later that those series were on playstation only. That is why I picked playstation.

    I chose playstation because I have been a member of playstation since the PS1. The blu ray and the trophy features also help on my choice. The free online is also cool but with the easy to handle controller of the ps3 being similar to the PS2 no way I would have bought an xbox.

    One reason. The was in the right place. Playing Madden on Xbox drove me crazy. Every time i needed to get it to the receiver I would hit the A button.

    I was a Nintendo kid. I got an N64 when I was like six, and then my parents surprised me with a PS2 when I was twelve... even though I wanted a GameCube at the time. So, I didn't choose PlayStation; my parents chose it for me. I did get a PS3 myself though.

    Let's see...
    Blu-Ray.
    Region Free (Games).
    Rechargeable Controller that last longer than 3 hours on a fully charge battery.
    A lot of good exclusives games.
    You don't have to pay $50 pr. year to access the web or gift send to you by Company making the game.

    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!
