you could always do a deal with them, if you can raise half the cash for one by getting a after school job or something, they might pay the other half. ;)
You never know, it could happen :D

Team up with a former student of yours to create the most chemically pure and stable form of mephamphetamine Albuquerque has ever seen and sell it to the junkie masses. Alternatively, do what all the cool kids do these days, smash a window in a shop and grab one. Be sure to get somebody to record your attempt and upload it!

 

Or just don't spend every single pound you get when you get it and actually save up money so you can buy something when you want without relying on your parents...But who am I kidding, that won't happen so instead:

 

How about you spell the vast majority of words correctly, use atleast some punctuation and use readable grammar. I still cannot understand anything after "I tried last year..."

maybe they said no because they cant afford it?

look at it this way would you rather your parents buy you a ps3 or pay the bills so that you can actually have a house to live in??

get a paper round or a milk round and save your money thats what i did when i was young and my dad got laid off from work, and i saved all my money for a console then GAVE the money to my parents to help pay the bills,

i couldnt get the console at the time but my dad got a job 3 weeks later and bought me it AND a load of games,

maybe your family is in the same situation?

swings and roundabouts and all that

Why don't you trade in your psp and games if you don't use them and put that towards you getting a PS3,

I don't how old you are but why don't you offer some help to neighbours/friends during school holidays eg:washing cars,tidying gardens,washing windows...little odd jobs, tell them politely you are saving up to buy a PS3 for yourself without relying on your parents and would they give you a donation towards it....I bet if they see your showing some initiative you could get yourself quite a bit towards your PS3 in a couple of weeks.

 

good luck.:Thumbs:

Hold a bring and buy sale in your garden or at a car boot sale and sell the stuff you don't want anymore. The neat thing about this is, you can get everyone involved. Also sell some lemonade, paintings, poetry or music that you have done. I did it when I was seven year old. and it payed off; we got £362.97.

I remember the day...clear as yesterday. :smileyhappy:

The person who posted the thread could be the parents son or daughter. So if that's the case they'll never buy em' a PS3 Porn Bundle again. One more thing do you think the child knows about kissing? (Singing Twilight Zone theme tune :smileywink:)
