Sony came through and shipped my PS3 today with ONE day delivery, so I'm due to get it tomorrow (Friday)! From my unpleasantly-self-satisifed-and-gloating email to friends:
So, I go to the Sony site and see my PS3 has shipped, but not only that, it was shipped via Fed-Ex ONE day and will be here FRIDAY, estimated time of delivery being 10:30AM. I gave a little-girl shriek and started clapping my hands. Russ was not impressed with my less than manly outburst, but I'm all excited now.
I have Resistance: Fall of Man to play, and the third X-Men movie to watch on blu-ray. I'll try to get one other game tomorrow while I'm out doing my last-minute Xmas shopping. (Yes, I plan to make sure it arrives, then go shopping before coming home and playing with it. Once something is in my possession I like to prolong the first use as long as possible....)
Ok, true confession time: In my original e-mail to them I said I have "Gears of War" to play, instead of "Resistance: Fall of Man". Ooops. (Yes, I do have a 360 too. I think GoW is beautiful, but I find the gameplay a tad to repetitive to recommend wholeheartedly...)
