Seems like the simpler solution would have been to, you know, set her straight on the fact that you hadn't bought him a PS3. Either that, or your boyfriend's mom is scheming you to save them from having to buy the PS3 themselves.

I agree with 31. You already got him a gift, don't change it because his family was dumb. Give him the coat, don't go out and break your bank due to them getting him useless gifts. If you actually go out and buy it, YDI.

best idea: buy a xbox 360 just to fuck with them. then they will have to return the games. and 360 is better anyways

why didn't you tell them 'no what gave you that idea, I got him a coat cause he needs one' and just leave it at that. they can return the games and get him something different.

They're probably playing mind games so that you'll feel obligated to buy it. I don't know why you would, because that's rediculous. Don't give in or they'll know it works.

I like the "buy a different game system just to fuck with them" idea. I suggest a Wii, they're cheaper.

and the wii wins. PS3s are crap, too big and too expensive. And why would they assume that you'd buy a PS3 anyway?

well, i have a ps3 and i gotta be honest with you,they're expensive, but atm they're having sales and stuff but thats beside the point. just don't buy one, his family shouldn't assume you were getting one, just give him the coat =D

okay . . . if the OP can buy an expensive coat i will ASSUME that she is past the age of 10 so a wii is defintly not something I would want if i was 10+ seriously its probably one of the overated systems ever all the games on it are shit and have no proper longetivity whatsoever so if anything get him a 360/ps3 which auctually has multiplayer and not hello kitty island 5 revenge of the kittens

Oh ho ho, congratulations, a person hating on what is one of the best systems out there. I'm sure you must feel so superior, huh? What I love is that the majority of people who hate the wii haven't even played it. Everybody that I've talked to in person who absolutely hated 'the stupid wii because it's a game for five year olds' changed their mind when they actually played some decent games (like super smash bros). Even the freaks that were obsessed by trash like Halo and Grand Theft Au

i own both a wii and a ps3. there are a few good games on the wii. namely, wii sports (resort), brawl, and ... ummm.... i guess thats it. i never touch the thing anymore because i got sick of them. the wii is basically a good system for kids and drunken parties. ps3 has decent games but most of them are multiplatform. the main reason i got a ps3 was for the blu-ray and free online. mostly i use the ps3 for movies and my gaming comp for games though because my parents run the TV.

I own a Wii, and there are many more great games for it. Some examples: Mario Kart, Mario Party 8, The Beatles: Rock Band (and all other RB and assorted 'hero' games, some, like GH5, having Wii-exclusive features), and New Super Mario Bros. Wii, among others.

Nahh. The sonic games aren't the same since before they got the crappy 4kids voice actors in,I miss the megadrive days *sniff* I'd say the wii was the most versatile console. I'd also say it had great longetivity as it has endless multiplayer possibilities due to having some of the best multiplayer games... like ever. If you get a wii just DON'T buy 3rd party crappy games, problem solved.

Or you can just keep the coat as his Christmas gift and let his family learn to communicate better.

Too many negative votes, comment buried. Show the comment

There's enough communication between family to get him PS3 games, but not enough to know you're not getting him a PS3. I agree, it smells like a scheme. Hope he isn't planning on breaking up with you after the holidays.
