If you’ve been a worshipper of me, you would have known that I’m sort of greak (gadget freak). I’m currently contemplating whether I should buy the Sony Playstation 3 and a HDTV now.

Firstly, there are some reasons that are against my purchasing of the above products. The PS3 has a serious lack of games that excites me currently. Most are fighting games which I’m not very interested unless there is someone to play with me (Cirnelle!). FPS games which I prefer to play with a mouse and keyboard. Resistance: Fall of man has sweet graphics but graphics isn’t the first priority. Then there are racing games such as Motorstorm and Formula 1 (which I tried but the game feels too easy and the graphics are nothing like the screenshots. Didn’t give me the wow factor and the cars look too shiny and plasticky).

Besides the games, there is of course the price factor but not really a big factor. Then there is the rumour factor of Sony wanting to upgrade the device with larger this, more that etc.

To enjoy all these at its full 1080p glory, I need a HDTV (rather FullHD resolution). And here price is a big thing. The cheapest so far that suits my sensitive senses and my high expectations is the Samsung 40M86BD. I think I need a bigger house and a bigger paycheck.

Then comes the devil, pulling me and persuading me to go out and get those babies home NOW!

Since I’m doing my practical now, I’ve got some time on my hands to relax and enjoy the razor sharp details till my eyes bleed. Because later on when I resume my studies, there might be less time.

There is also the factor of lack of games for the PS2. Everywhere it’s XBox360 or PS3 games (Wii doesn’t excite me). Then there are games like Metal Gear Solid 4, FFXIII, GTA IV and Gran Turismo 5. OK, let me first mop up the drool on the floor, ahem.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. They say “life is full of decisions”, but they forgot to add that “only if you don’t have a shitload of money”. Cause I think at the end of the day, it will always boil down to money.

So guys (and gals), make the person you worship happier by sending me money (or downloading Firefox from the link at the sidebar, join Adsense or visit the sponsors).
