Theres a Playstation 4? You have got to be kidding me!
February 26, 2013 by
Ever since my husband brought his PlayStation 3 home, I feel as if he's not home...even when he's sitting in the livingroom. It's no fun nagging if he cannot hear me. Besides him being "absent" once that stupid game is on, I have to deal with the arguments he has with fellow players. Damn it, why did technology have to become so great? Why must games now come with headsets and the option to play against strangers?
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he's home all the time. I hear stories that really makes me count my blessings, but damn that PS3! It never fails. When he plays the basketball game against other people, he acts as if it's a real life game he's playing. I hear him yelling at other people to "pass the ball"....... Seriously? They actually have "friends" on there. People who schedule their days around the game just so they can be on the same team and play seasons together. I guess that's not too strange nowadays, because I have actually made friends from online...so it's almost the same thing. But, at least I'm not yelling into a headset!
Months ago we had a conversation about his playing because our youngest son repeated things he said in the game while yelling at another player. He's been pretty good since then, but still...the game playing sometimes makes me feel as if he's another child of mine. What's worse, is now he found out there's a PlayStation 4. Goodness gracoius.
Stop making new Playstations!!!

Oh my god that sounds like my house. It would be so funny if our husbands have played the nba game together, lol
>RondaFebruary 26, 2013 7:24 PM Lol, that would be something. Who knows, he plays people from all over the country so its a possibility :) Margorie JFebruary 26, 2013 5:14 PM
Saw your post in mombloggers, too funny. PS3 makes me want to pull my hair out. You know there was a story that it breaks up homes?
>RondaFebruary 26, 2013 7:29 PM Wow!!! Dont pull your hair out, just pull out one of the cords behind the console, lol Varetta OFebruary 27, 2013 10:11 PM
That is my husband too girl so you're not alone!!! He cursed someone out on the headseat thingy and my son was walking past him and heard him. I took away his video game privileges for a week. pretty much hid the headset in my car trunk
>RondaFebruary 28, 2013 1:23 PM Oh you're too much, lmao. That's a good idea though, because when the Sony service was down and my husband couldn't play against other people he didn't play the games at all. He only plays games that uses the headset. I'm hiding his tonight! BekahMarch 1, 2013 11:45 AM
I'm sure many wives echo your sentiment. I choose to just find it funny so I don't go insane. If he gets the PS4, you'll just be a game widow to a new console...it's not like he can scream and yell and ignore any more than he already does. :)
>RondaMarch 1, 2013 1:23 PM I'm starting to notice that... I used to feel all alone, lol. True! :) LuAnn BMarch 1, 2013 4:27 PM
