“For the parents who may be bidding on this system, you might be wondering why your child wants this so much. “Why spend so much? It’s just a simple video game system, right?” Wrong. Here’s just a few facts about the power of the Playstation 3:
1. Imagine gluing a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2. Now double that amount of power. Now subtract the power of a Super Nintendo and you have a rough estimate of how powerful this thing is.
2. Playstation 3 is heavier than both an Xbox 360 and a Ninendo Wii. That is because it has more computer chips inside, which of course means it’s more powerful.
3. Due do polymicroprocessors, Playstation 3 is the first system powerful enough to deliver 4-D graphics.
4. Sony successfully lobbied for an amendment to the constitution that allowed this much power, which the founding fathers feared would strengthen witches’ magic.
5. Playstation 3 is so powerful that Sony officially announced it is more powerful than what Playstation 4 will be.
6. NASA replaced Kenedy Space Center with two Playstation 3s. It’s not that a single Playstation 3 couldn’t handle the job, it’s just that they also wanted to watch Talladega Nights while working.
7. Playstation 3 has the processing power to make it appear as if animals or babies were talking. Until now, this awesome technology has only been available to movies, tv commercials and the super rich.
8. AWESOME GRAPHICS!
9. Beating a hooker in Grand Theft Auto on a Playstation 3 looks more realistic than beating a hooker in real life.
10. This is the first piece of equipment that Tim Allen officially declared “enough power.” “
