Default Silly story: went for a wii, ended up with a ps3

As you all know, I recently sold my ps3. I was planning to get a wii today morning but both circuit city and bestbuy were out by the time I got to them. Coming home disppointed I was browsing Ebay for some deals and found the PS3 was going for under 400. Now I had planned to spend 375 on thw ii, with xtra controlers, games and stuff. So when I saw an auction for that amount abt to end, I jumped on it and now I have a ps3 again. The seller was very prompt in replying and he said he would mail it first thing tomorrow. So I am back with a PS3 "again"

If you would have gone the "pathetic loser" route you could have gotten a Wii over a month ago.

Good price even if you just use it as a blu-ray player.

Dont see much sense in selling a PS3 at such a loss so you better hope what he sends you is not a brand new PS3 "box". "This box is brand new". Good luck though.
