Paparazzi Gets a Shot of British Prime Minister’s PS3

You couldn’t get one.

Even presidential candidate John Edwards couldn’t get one.

But British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who has three kids, apparently managed to score a PlayStation 3.

By way of Kotaku come paparazzi photos of Blair’s wife Cheri lugging a PS3 into the mansion of former Bee Gees star Robin Gibb. The Blairs are currently vacationing with Gibb.

    Did anyone consider the REMOTE (@_@) possibility that he just got one normally? I mean if everytime a politician tries to get their hands on a console the public freaks out and assumes they’re using their name to do it.. how are they ever supposed to get their kids a damn christmas present.

    I wouldn’t even call John Edwards a presidential candidate. No one in his own party even cares about him, and everyone else knows he’s a loser, so he’s more like a ex-politician trying to squeeze the last bit of free press he can get

    In fact, over the past three days, I have been presented with no less than three separate opportunities to buy one, once with multiple units in stock.

    If only I actually wanted one.

    I’m still waiting for my Wii.

    You need to fact check your article. I’ve gotten three of them so far. One for myself, one for my wife, and one as Christmas present for a friend.

    Hmmm… how old are his kids? There really aren’t any good kids games for the PS3 yet (Sonic doesn’t count)… Mr. Blair should have gotten a Wii or a 360 with Viva Pinata. Or maybe his kids are really into Blu-Ray.

    I got one 3 days ago at EB. Used my christmas money, gift cards, and PS2 as a trade in. Also bought a memory card converter and “Resistance: Fall of Man” (fucking awesome, BTW). After trades and gift cards, I was only out $658 Canadian, less than the cost of the console itself before taxes.

    My point? Umm, none I guess. I just love my PS3!

    Now… What games does he let the kids play?

    Though I doubt he would admit to letting his kids play violent video games, I should note that I would have nothing negative to say if he does. After all, they are his kids and he and his wife know their kids better than anyone. So whatever games they let their kids play, the games would be appropriate for their kids because THEY say the games are appropriate. Doesn’t matter if anyone else says they are or not.

    The Prime Minister’s family knows the Bee Gees? Cool!
