Wielding My New PS4

And more like having it shoved into my arms.

Not that I’d asked to be given a used PlayStation 4. Or any gaming console, new or used, for that matter. I’m not a gamer. Or at least I wasn’t before.

Now, I’m not so sure.

What is a PlayStation 4?

According to the internet:

The PS4 is a home video game console created by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

What Can You Do on It?

You can game, stream movies and shows through your favorite services, connect with friends and other players, and probably more things I haven’t discovered yet.

It does streamline much of your entertainment needs, which is convenient.

And, apparently, you can even surf the web on it.

The Cost

It ranges anywhere between about $170 -$1000+ depending on the seller, selling platform, and the condition of the console.

It’s not even the newest console in the PlayStation series any more!

I know, crazy.

So, I guess I’m lucky that mine was a gift.

How I Got This Gaming Console

My “New” PS4

Well, like I stated earlier, it was a gift. And one I’d known about for around a month before my second trip to Texas.

He’d have purchased the PS5 a while back, so he didn’t need two consoles. And he’s been trying to turn me into a gamer since we first met a few years ago.

He even told me to leave extra room in my bags for it — more than once. And I did, although it wasn’t easy making that work.

But I suppose a part of me didn’t really believe I’d be getting a PS4, especially since I’d never asked for one.

I mean, how many people do that?
