What about people that don't have one, or is this one of those "PS3 only" things.

I don't have one, I use PSN on PSP.

I never really had a job and I bought a PS3 two weeks before GTA IV came out. I was 15 then and I'm 16 now.

Love your honesty bro - and lets be honest - that's the main reason I'd work if I was still living with my parents. It took me about a weeks to get an Xbox360 and SE GTA IV for it. But I was over 16 and parents were paying for my real expenses.

I'd imagine for someone under 16 - I think you guys might have a special reduced minimum wage - but it sill really shouldn't be any more than 2 or so weeks. Especially now prices have dropped significantly and I bought my XBOX a week before GTA 4, and the game on the day.

Hope you best luck my friend, and well done for learning to work for your sruff - trust me the console and it's games will be more rewarding when you worked for them.
Have a blast. icon14.gif

I remember when I worked a job one day a week when I was 15 and I saved up for a PS2 when they first came out. Took me almost 2 months. It was so f*cking worth it... still have the PS2 actually... doesn't work though. Vice City killed it... rolleyes.gif

I swear OP made a thread like this 3 times before asking the same thing.

Just go get a job, boyo. It won't take long to get a PS3 at all assuming it's a basic summer job

Well, this basically says it all. Just work for your money!

haha, I'm a bit older, so ditto for PS1 but I didn't wait, oooh landlord was pissed. When PS2 came out, I paid over 9000, impulse purchase, never missed the cash. PS3, no, hell no. I'll get GTAIV for this laptop if Oleg ever sorts the filter. wink.gif

There are certain other consoles you can get in half the time.

You mean the Xbox360? Well, as far as I know the 'cheap price' of the Xbox is pretty much a lie. You get nothing with it. If you want to have a decent Xbox360 'loadout' you come near the price of a decent 'PS3 offer'.

Took me three weeks of Real Work with my Dad at a Refrigeration Spares company when i was 14. Damn i was doing 18+ Work and didn't leave till 7PM.Was like going through hell for summer. Still well worth it when i rubbed it into my friends faces who mooched it off their parents for Christmas. biggrin.gif

Fullmetal: I completely agree with you on that statement. A bare-bone 360 with nothing may be half the price. But an Elite with XBL and a Adapter if your going wireless and some good games would set you back around an extra 120-150.

Sure i can get an 80GB for the price of a premium 360 here.

I got my dad to loan me the money for my PS3 and HDTV back in 2006 when I was working in Currys (10% discount ftw!) and I'm still paying him back too this day. nervous.gif

I never had a PS3, but I use PSN on PSP, and it took me around two weeks of saving up to get a PSP plus GTA LCS and VCS, and Pro Evo. I played that thing to destruction in the end.

Sold sweets for 5 months, bought a 360 with the cash. If you pack your bag with the stuff, you can make a killing profit.

I sold loads of stuff at school like munch and drinks, took a few months to save up, bought a 360 the weekend before GTA IV came out, then bought GTA IV the day it came out.

I think a better question might be;

Teens under 16

Who are your employers so I can report them for child labour?
