Without Regret, Well Really!

Yesterday I did something that you people who know me real well would say; "We don't believe you one bit!" Even a few friends who visited during yesterday Independence Day said they cannot trust me when I broached the subject.

You see, I am abandoning my PlayStation 3 gaming life for good. (but may play other games on my notebook computer, of course).

The PlayStation series was a part of my life for more than a decade. I bought my PS1, and later PS2 from the same dealer and our (me and PS) relationship was closer than a sex-crazed couple. I spent hundreds of hours on many games, and if I estimated correctly, one fifth of my day is exclusively for gaming.

Then the paragon of all consoles arrived... the PS3. I bought mine a few months after the launching in Singapore (because Sony didn't launch it here, piracy problem). Mine was one of the very first few in the whole state of Malacca. The price of the games was astronomic (because PS3 can only read original dvds) but for the love of gaming, everything is a-ok.

We spent two solid years of happiness together, a lot of money went to buy the expensive games. Until one morning a few days ago...

I pulled of the cables and put the console away. I was not even tempted to play anymore. Suddenly the urge for gaming died, like the last embers extinguished by a cold glass of water. I felt nothing, not empty, just nothing. And last night I did the second step for the culling. I put out an advert to sell ALL of my games. See it here. A lot of people are interested to buy because my price is even lower than the rest of the sellers.

I am not making a lot of money though, I may lost around 50% of my cost, and that would be in the thousands of ringgit. Never mind.

Now say you believe me.

When it ends like that, I say it ended a long time ago. You just didn't know it.

I believe you. Actually a lot of 'addictions' end abruptly. One day you just had enough. And BOOM! That's it.

SLC; I don't get it. What does it mean it ended a long time ago?

Shadowthorne said...

Aizan; I made almost RM 1 500 in cash selling games today. What I did with the money is another entry beauty. Wait for it...

Shadowthorne said...

Tenchi; maybe.... maybe not. Or it'll just end as a very expensive dvd player only.

Your obsession.

Shadowthorne said...

SLC; No it didn't end a long time ago. Just a few days back, I swear it.

I guess I'll take your word for it. :)
