Today, I found out that my parents were artists when they met. My mom said that I was one of their best projects yet. My sister, hearing what my mother said, broke my week-old PS3 in a rage. FML

I /really/ hope some punishment is delivered for that!! I hate favoritism as much as the next sibling, but that is not the way to go about it!

Probably why you're the favorite, your sibling sounds like a spoiled brat

I have to say, though, the sister just proved their mom's point.

to be fair, the parents said 'one of the best', not 'the best'. they could have meant the sister's another one of the best. it's not necessarily favouritism

I think the ps3 comes with 90 day insurance.

Favoritism isn't implied here. The mom said "one of" meaning his sister was another one of their best projects.

Braking something like that is just wrong... But look at your sister's point of wive... No kid likes to her that their second best or second favorite. I feel bad for you sister. But braking your stuff was wrong.

:( why the ps3... WHAT DID THE PS3 EVER DO TO YOU!!! * cue spotlight crying with smashed to bits ps3, sitting helplessly on the floor in a heap*

Mom said OP was one of their best projects, not "THE BEST" project. I'm sure Mom thinks Sis is another of their best projects.

in this moment of crisis, you should stand by your sister. empathize, forgive, forget. best of luck.

I don't see the issue here the ps4 will be out in a few months. Save your money.

ummm... most people can't afford/ waste money on buying a console as soon as it comes out.... and seeing as consoles are no longer backwards compatible, old consoles are still valuable. Heck, we still play Mario party 2 on the n64 cause its that awesome :D

@13 That really doesn't justify what his sister did.

I didn't say it justified her actions, I think its messed up what she did, but if he had enough money to purchase a brand new console or even used, and your right about the ps3 retaining its value, then he should have saved up until the new one came out.

and 16, I still play the original super smash bros. on 64 ;)

It doesn't say if they're still artists or not, but if they are, nobody in that house has enough money to reimburse OP for his PS3... lol

Plus, the fact that it was a week old suggests that there's a possibility OP had been saving for quite a while for it.

13: My 360 died a couple weeks ago and it took me a week to get around to replacing it. I won't buy the XBONE or the PS4 until it's been proven for at least two years, anything else is basically paying top dollar to get into a wide-scale beta test. Remember the Red Ring o' Death on the 360's that plagued it for a year? Yeah.

The Red Rings weren't an error. They are a way to tell you what type of issue your xbox is facing. 1 flashing red light being a small issue like power cable or hdmi cable not being properly plugged in. I forget what 2 or 3 meant. I got 4 flashing lights (Full ring) which meant that the console overheated was completely wrecked.

Three rings was a hardware failure that required service. That was specifically nicknamed the RRoD. Other lighting combinations did indeed indicate other problems.

the ps4 sounds like its going to suck Ass. I like my ps3

@100 my brother kept getting the red ring of death, I think it would overheat and stopped working. He had to keep sending it to get fixed (there was still a warranty) this happened on and off for about a year. Turns out, having it in the cubby beneath the TV didn't give it enough ventilation so he started placing it on an end table, hasn't had the problem ever since.

Show it anyway

You are, now run off and have a cookie

Parents favors op, sister heard it, broke ops ps3.

The mom and dad, who were artists, complemented OP by saying he was the best project (like an art project) they've ever made. OPs sister, being jealous, made her case for being the best child by thrashing a $400+ PS3

I thought it said "one of the best"

PS3s are no longer near $400. The more expensive ones are maybe $250 if that. Still, OP's sister needs to control her temper.

I think this person is not old enough to on be here...!!

I'm glad you explained thus because by "artists" I thought OP meant **** stars and by "project" he meant accident. I need to stop reading into things too much.

with tax it can get up to about four hundted, depending on the starting price

I guess she proved that she's not one of their best.

Yeah, maybe OP realizes why he is the favorite.

Still a pretty shitty way to realize it though. Hope the parents make OP's lame sister replace the console.

At least they could have had the decency to keep that silent.

Idk why you got a thumbs down for that, so I gave you a thumbs up to counteract it lol. I agree. There was no reason for the parents to even bring that up.

But they said "one of" so the sister has just made the assumption that she's not one of the other projects. She's a brat.

And she wonders why she's not the best "project"

Probably why you're the favorite, your sibling sounds like a spoiled brat

She needs to learn not to be so jealous and to respect your stuff. Insist that she either pays to get it repaired, or buys you a new one.

I'm just wondering why OP is just now getting a PS3.

56, not everyone can afford one when they first come out. It's a possibility that OP waited for it to come down to a certain price before purchasing it.

Man she's really making a case for why she's the best child right here...

I really hope you don't have any siblings and/or kids.

#14- I was just thinking that. If anyone ever smashes my stuff.... oh. Just don't get me started.

PS4's coming out, jokes on her. don't get the Xbox one, it'll be watching you.....
