Yes, good luck to you all. Read many reviews. Awesome stuff in there. I felt compelled to review my grandparents 1975 "Pong" console they handed down to me lol. Starting to think I should have.

Congratulations to all three, and thanks again to all who entered!

Wow really? I wrote more reviews than anyone else here and they were quality reviews! This is the second time I have done this and got nothing, these contests are rigged.

Well, I had the most entries in the game review contest and I won it, so there is some logic to that line of thought...

Come to think of it, I need to finish up a few reviews for some of the PS4 launch games...

If my odds are 100:1 and your odds are 100:5, everybody else's odds combined are still 100:94.

The only logical expectation is to not win.

It's not about quantity, it's about quality.

Rigged? I've never even won anything before, lol, this was literally the first time ever, and completely just a spontaneous thing to write a review too.

Thank you Scott for making a great contest and giving me the opportunity to test my writing skills. smile.gif

Not to drag this down further, but it looks like Julian deleted all the info in the reviews he posted, way to take your ball and go home.

I'd say (as per my review) to go with the original CECHA01 model PlayStation 3. Not only is it hands-down the best PlayStation 3 ever, it is also one of the best game consoles of all time.

Lol at the "way to take your ball and go home" remark! :D That might just be the funniest thing I've read this week. +1

Just to clarify, that comment was intended to be ironic. ;-)

Also, my sincerest thanks to the sponsor(s) of this contest, whoever they may be. Since I already have more games and consoles than I have time to play them, I put the money toward the beginnings of a home recording studio: a PreSonus AudioBox USB, mic stands, cables, a pop filter, and a Nexus 7 tablet just for fun. Here is a hastily-thrown-together demonstration of my setup. The song is "I Won't Look Back" by NEEDTOBREATHE.

Since that original post I chucked the AMD hex core overboard (actually a 960t successfully unlocked to hex) in favor of an Intel 4770k on a mITX board (small form factor motherboard/case that fits in the shelf alongside the AVR/cable box etc). AMDs new "high performance" desktop CPUs are locked out of small form motherboards ...so goodbye AMD. Considering integrated hardware now becoming common on mITX boards (WLAN, HQ audio cards, Bluetooth, M.2-NGF, mPCIE etc) I see no need to have a gigantic ATX tower taking up space...and it's nice having that gigantic ugly tower out of my living space!
