Trophy Unlocked: PlayStation 3 obtained

Heavy Rain CoverFive years after its release, I finally own a PlayStation 3. This feels like a significant length of time, especially as the only console I purchased after a comparable amount of time was the Dreamcast, which had already been "dead" for years at that point. But the PlayStation 3 is far from dead, and through a combination of a down economy and systems that are still "good enough", neither Microsoft or Sony seem to be in any kind of rush to release their next console iteration. This is beneficial to consumers like me, who are greatly rewarded for waiting with lots of great, exclusive games at cheap prices.

There is definitely an embarassment of riches to be had jumping into a five year old, successful console like the PlayStation 3, emphasized by my recent Christmas extravaganza. My wife ordered me the system over Black Friday, triggering a chain reaction of purchases from siblings and in-laws, hey, I can't complain. Here's my haul:

We've covered some of these games before here at First Hour, but I plan to at least provide a first hour review of the titles that haven't seen action yet. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited, and my backlog has just grown exponentially.

Later this week, my review of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and our Game of the Year Awards.

PS3!!!

Congrats on the system and slew of games! I'd only ever get one if I found more room to house it. Alas, our entertainment stand is pretty full as is. Heard inFamous is a lot of free-world fun!
