Giddy with excitement.

If I were trapped on a desert island, and it was me, some coconuts, an xbox360, an HDTV and only one game (we’re assuming the island has an electrical outlet… hey, it’s MY desert island, not yours), the game would be Battlefield. Ever since I first walked in on my friend Kris playing conquest on a PC about ten years ago, I’ve been hooked. Unlike most of my PC-gaming brethren, I’ve long since preferred the console Battlefield experience over the PC (Except for Battlefield 2, which was arguably the greatest multiplayer experience you could have that didn’t contain the words “Roman Orgy”) and have been a faithful Battlefield player since I beta tested Battlefield on the Sony Playstation 2. Which, by the way, was actually why I bought a PS2. When I found out I could get an invite to the beta, I immediately replied, “of course I have a PS2″ and swiftly left the house to go buy one.

So when I saw this, I nearly fainted. When I saw the bit at the end about pre-ordering and getting “Back to Karkand” expansion pack at no charge, I’m not ashamed to admit I pooped myself AND got hives.

To all my friends who have Playstation 3…

Hey, friend me!

I’m on the Playstation Network now and I’m not sure who else that I even know has one. I think a couple of my friends either on Facebook or Twitter have Playstations, but for the most part, I’ve been all about Xbox360 for so long that I’ve never really followed who even has a Playstation 3, or who’s on the Playstation Network. Hell, I don’t even know what the Playstation Network is, I just know I signed up and joined it when I got my PS3.

So if you’ve got one, send a friend request… or whatever they call it on Playstation, and let’s hook up. I’m curious to see what people play in a world without “Halo”. I think I’m gonna grab a driving game or perhaps one of the Call of Duty or Battlefield games for Playstation, but I’d really like to see what multiplayer games my friends play before I dive in.

So jump on that. Let’s get this party started! My “Gamertag” (for lack of a better term… what DO they call it?) is “JeffRSmall”. Hit me up, yo.
