I wrote it on an additional page which I stapled to the application and just wrote "See Appendix A"

My brother actually works at a Gamestop, and I all but 1 employee at that location is very knowledgeable about games, consoles, etc. I guess most other Gamestops are not as fortunate.

The problem at the GameStops in my area is that the guy who owns/manages them is alumni of the business department at a university here, so he tends to hire business majors (read: no videogame experience necessary) from that school and tends to look over a lot of otherwise qualified applicants.

Thank you. A Pawn Shop actually could answer my questions better than the employees at GameStop but they were selling a used one for $300+

That said, in my experience it seems the 60GB consoles are starting to fail, so getting a cheap PS2 might be better than looking for a PS3. Plus PS2 games are, as predicted, starting to appear for download on PSN.

Yep, they were hard to find when I was looking for one two years ago, going for about 300$ then too... A friend of mine got one, and it failed. The blu-ray drive went out so he got it fixed, then two months later the hard disk went out. So really, I would agree with Neo, it's probably not a solid purchase and you're probably better off spending 50-60$ on the PS2.

Wii has the best exclusive titles compared to the other two systems.

took me three tries for the PS2 to work right from GameStop... gave up and bought one from Amazon and it worked fine first try....
Now if only I can get my rare game out of my original system which I still have.

The disk is stuck in the system and you cannot open the tray? I would just pry the tray open if there is no hope for repairing the system. You could also just take it to a local videogame store (not Gamestop) and see if they can get it out or repair the system if they can do it for a reasonable price.

That's always been the case, though. It's Nintendo. Their first-party stuff puts everything to shame in terms of both quality and diversity.

Yup. At this point Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 combined couldn't even match half of the PSP's RPG library, much less the behemoth that is DS. Nearly full lists look something like:

PS3 (By my count, 4 worthwhile games)
  1. 3D Dot Game Heroes
  2. Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel
  3. Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland
  4. Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland
  5. Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland
  6. Cross Edge
  7. Demon's Souls
  8. Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice
  9. Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
  10. Final Fantasy Versus XIII
  11. Final Fantasy X HD (Exclusive for now, anyway)
  12. Final Fantasy XIV Online
  13. Hyperdimension Neptunia
  14. Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2
  15. Last Rebellion
  16. Legasista
  17. Mugen Souls
  18. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
  19. Record of Agarest War 2
  20. Tales of Graces F
  21. Trinity Universe
  22. Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll
  23. Valkyria Chronicles
  24. White Knight Chronicles
  25. White Knight Chronicles II
  26. Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls

Wii (By my count, 3 worthwhile games + 2 maybes)
  1. Arc Rise Fantasia
  2. Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors
  3. Dragon Quest X: Online (Also gonna be on Wii U, though...)
  4. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time
  5. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers
  6. Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon
  7. Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
  8. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
  9. Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon
  10. Harvest Moon: Animal Parade
  11. Harvest Moon: My Little Shop
  12. Little King's Story
  13. Monster Hunter Tri
  14. Muramasa: The Demon Blade (I don't know that I would count this as an RPG, but whatever)
  15. Opoona
  16. Pokemon Battle Revolution
  17. Rune Factory Frontier
  18. Shiren the Wanderer
  19. Spectrobes: Origins (Jade Cocoon 2 owned faces; I dunno about this)
  20. Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
  21. The Last Story
  22. Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga (The PSP games were awful)
  23. Xenoblade Chronicles

Xbox 360 (By my count, 4 worthwhile games)
  1. Blue Dragon
  2. Infinite Undiscovery
  3. Lost Odyssey
  4. Magna Carta 2
  5. Operation Darkness
  6. Spectral Force 3
  7. Tales of Vesperia
  8. The Last Remnant
  9. Zoids Assault

And the two Xbox Live Arcade games:
  1. Guardian Heroes (It's a Saturn port, though...)
  2. Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax

And Western RPGs that are X360 (console) exclusive, that I'm aware of:
  1. Band of Bugs (XBLA)
  2. Bastion (XBLA)
  3. Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (Indie)
  4. Cthulhu Saves the World (Indie)
  5. Divinity II: Ego Draconis / The Dragon Knight Saga
  6. Greed Corp (XBLA)
  7. Mass Effect
  8. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  9. Too Human
  10. Torchlight


I'm naturally more biased towards X360 considering I've had about four and a half years with it compared to six months with the PS3.
  Deleting the bookmark. Take care, and thanks for the memories.
