    Having just finished my class on Shakespeare's sonnets, and approaching 1 year of ownership of my PS3, I'm feeling rather poetical (I own a 360 as well).

    Oh PS3, why dost thou tease me so?
    More power than a gamer dares to dream,
    And yet, though I have searched both high and low,
    Exclusive titles a few and far between,
    And when we see them - I mean, come on: Lair?
    Or Heav'nly Sword? It is no Bioshock,
    No Gears of War, and to Halo, it can't compare,
    If gaming's a sea, PS3's still in the dock.
    And yet, somehow, I manage to love it so.
    No red rings of death, and lovely interface,
    And Blu-Ray is quite neat, I'll have you know,
    And the visualizer always brightens up my place.
    And yet, third in my heart, you might just be -
    You are not yet a 360 or Wii.

    ^ I have to do that soon. I forgot to buy ribbon & tags though and the thought of driving to get them is filling me with dread. Think the 'wrapping' will be very basic this year....

    Happy christmas to you anyway matey :)

    "Half a PS3, philosophically, must ipso facto half not be. But half the PS3 has got to be vis-à-vis its entity - d'you see? But can a PS3 be said to be or not to be an entire PS3 when half the PS3 is not a PS3 due to some ancient injury?"

    A stagnant and uninterested sneeze from 16 years ago is a good comparison for Halo 3.

    yeah yeah. Girlfriend! I think the picture is innocuous enough - don't mean it to be racy.

    Overly defensively yours,

    Yep, it's pretty sweet too. For the first few months of ownership, the visualizer is mainly what I used it for.
