Today is my birthday and my husband took the boys out to buy me some presents. After opening two cute stuffed animals from the boys, and a Disney bracelet from my husband, he told the kids to get the last present out of the car...a Sony Playstation 3.
We already own a GameCube, Wii, XBox 360 and Playstation 2. (My boys are 8 and 11 and need these systems.) So why was he buying me a PS3? Well, yesterday I told him I pre-ordered Enchanted from the Disney Store to get the lithographs. I told him that the Blu-Ray disk has special features that the regular DVD will not have, but we were not going to get a Blu-Ray player until next year when we upgrade our TV to an HDTV. Thinking about the old VHS tapes we still have in the basement, he suggested we buy the Blu-Ray Enchanted now so we would not have to trade in the DVD in the future. Well, I don't want to wait a year to watch Enchanted (even though I do subscribe to Netflix and could watch it whenever I want) he knows how stubborn I am, so he bought a Blu-Ray for me today.
Now granted, it is in the form of a PS3, but he has been told that the Blu-Ray in the PS3 is the best one out there. Blu-Rays go for $400 and so does the PS3, so why not get the PS3 and have a great game system as well?
I married a marvelous man! Unpredictable, but marvelous.
So, did he make the right choice? More bang for the buck? Or should he have stuck to just the Blu-Ray player?
