Got my PS3 superslim last march'16, 2nd hand lang TEXT SPEAK VIOLATION pero well maintained at mganda yung package na games na included; (nba2k16, gtaV, farcry3, TLOU, ufc3, atbp).

since grade school days pa matagal ko na gustong magkaroon ng sariling console, but unfortunately, we dont have that budget at ayaw ng parents ko (my mom was a teacher) na ma-hook sa computer kasi "nakaka bobo" daw eto ng pag aaral (hehe).

Until nag work ako, playing computer games (PC,PS Xbox) pa din ako -- nag rerent lang sa mga cafe's and shops. Thinking kelan kaya ako makakabili ng sarili kong unit. bumigay na PC ko sa bahay kaya wala na din ko mapaglaruan sa bahay at hindi nman ako na sasatisfied sa paglalaro sa tablet.

Hanggang sa dumating sa point na sinabi ko; maybe its time na bumili na ako ng playstation kahit 2nd hand lang. some of my co-workers before nag encourage sa akin na instead na ps2 (yes, ps2 pa balak ko noon) ang kunin ko, mag ps3 na lang ako dahil mas madaming games at marami pa akong makaka trade na ps3 users din.

YUP, 2nd hand lang ps3 ko pero im proud kasi 1st time ko magkaroon ng sariling console at galing yun sa backpay ko at pinag trabahuhan/pinagpuyatan ko... I salute gamers here na sa sariling kayod galing ang pinambili.

Still noob user here pero hope joining here will add knowledge sa games at sa iba pang info. and hopefully good friends.. thank you at pasensya sa mahabang kwento ko.. happy gaming! ^_^
Yo! Just got my PS3 a week ago. It's actually brand new, but bought in olx for a good price.

Well, our parents don't really understand how nice some games are. It's a bit normal, I guess.

My first console was a DS Lite, given to me by my grandfather. I just started grade school by that time. Then I got a PSP, but I can't remember where I got it from. Due to some 'issues', those were sold. When I was a 4th/5th grader, my uncle bought me a DS Lite. Then a few months after that, I won a PSP from a raffle.

When the DS Lite was given to me, that was during the time when the 3DS was about to be released. So I spent 2 years "outdated", until my grandfather noticed that my DS Lite was entirely different from the consoles (3DS) my cousins had. And, yet again, he bought me a 3DS, and that was during my first year of high school.

I got another console - the successor to the PSP, the PS Vita - last December. I used my Christmas allowance given to me by my grandfather to buy the console.

But I never had a home console until a week ago. Before, I used to just play WWE with my friend's PS2 back at the 1st grade, or play Guitar Hero or Mario Kart with my cousins' Wii.

To be honest, it took me 2 years. 2 years before I was able to convince my mom to buy me a PS3. During that time, I suddenly wanted to buy a PS3 because I had recently discovered the Tales series during that time. I played Abyss in my 3DS and fell in love with it, so I'm trying to play all the Tales games I can. Before, I never bothered asking for a home console. PS2, Wii, Xbox? Nah. I don't have much games to play there. But the PS3? A 100% yes, ever since I discovered the Tales series.

I only got into olx ever since I started selling stuff there. And one day, I started saving money, till I got half the money to buy the PS3 from an ad I saw. When I did, I told my mom about it. She agreed to pay the rest to buy the console. And I got it.

I'm still a high school student, and I didn't get any allowance till recently. I think it's great that most of you guys have salaries to buy your own games, though.

Wew, that's one heck of a storytime lol.

Well, I recommend that you try the Tales series. The series has a lot of games with great gameplay and storyline. So far, I've only played 4 Tales games. I haven't bought the Tales of PS3 games yet, though, currently focusing on the Persona series, another series I recommend.

Anyway, good day to you guys. :D

Welcome to Pinoy PlayStation, katuGs!

Ganun ang karamihan ng mga working members natin, nung nagkatrabaho na saka nakabili ng sariling console. Magaganda lahat ng games na nakasama sa unit mo. Hindi ko lang nalalaro yang UFC at Far Cry. Sulit ka na diyan sa NBA 2K16, TLOU at GTAV. Tutal meron ka nung TLOU, subukan mo rin yung Uncharted 1-3. The best yun. Parang modern day Indiana Jones. May humor din. :lol:

Okay lang yan kahit 2nd hand ang PS3. Basta gumagana nang maayos. Maganda nga rin ang timing ng pagkuha mo ng PS3. Marami nang games na released.

Hope you'll have fun with our community. We talk about games and many things other than gaming also. :lol:

thanks grayfox17, yup Uncharted 1&2 nakakuha nko via trade/2nd hand trade. medyo natambakan na nga ako ng titles kasi tuwing weekends lang ako nkakapag babad sa ps3, minsan nga isang araw lang kasi sunday = family day. iniisip ko din na maganda din pala mag ipon ng games kasi investment din lalo n kapag gusto mo ibenta o e trade after.

Favorites din ng karamihan ng members natin: Final Fantasy, Resident Evil at Metal Gear Solid :D

I like 3rd Strike's animation. And when that game is mentioned, I always remember this insane tournament moment.

Hi guys!

I'm currently playing Witcher 3 but I'm a big fan of Bloodborne (2nd run through) and Dark Souls series. Googling has led me to this forum and I created this account dahil di ko alam san at paano mapupurchase yung DLC ng Dark Souls 3 (Ashes of Ariandel). I know I'm a noob in the forum but any help at all is appreciated.


Salamat!

In case you don't know yet, I'll layout the basic info na lang.

You have be logged in to the PSN account of your region to get that. If you don't have one, create ka na lang. You'll need to buy a PSN card for your region to buy it.

You'll know what region your game is by looking behind the game case, sa may baba, you should see a small black box logo with a globe inside it along with the marks R-ALL/R1/R2/R3.

R1 is for US.
R2 is for Europe.
R3 is for our region (asia).
R-ALL is, well, for all.

For example, R3 (most common dito sa tin) yung nasa likod ng game case mo and for convenience sake gawa ka ngayon ng SG account then buy a PSN card for SG. Log in ka sa PSN network from your console, or from your internet browser in your computer, then look for redeem codes. Input the code for the card, magkakaron ka ngayon ng pera sa account mo and that is what you will use to buy the game/dlc you want from the PSN.

Welcome to Pinoy PlayStation, officialyssadg!

Sa PSN HK, pwede ang local credit cards. Sa PSN US, hindi natin maidagdag yung credit cards e. Bumibili na lang kami ng PSN load. Meron tayong reputable seller ng PSN load pang US dito => viewtopic.php?f=237&t=68554
