HELP Parents need convincing

28 replies 210 views Edited Jan 8, 2014
Ever since I can remember I've played my video games in my basement. Well I'm thinking of buying a PS4 but that only has HDMI cable and my TV in my basement doesn't have an HDMI port. The only TV in my house that has an HDMI port is in my upstairs living room. My parents like to watch tv so they probably won't let me put the PS4 up there. I've asked in the past to move the Xbox 360 up an they said no, but that's fine because the xbox works downstairs, but the PS4 won't. So What do I say or do to convince them to let me put it upstairs so I can play on it? I wont have any games except one right away...

You won't be able to convince them to move Heaven and Earth just so you can play one game on a PS4.

 

They're going to say save up enough money to get a PS4 and a new TV.  That's the logical answer.  Or you should be able to find an adapter that converts the signal to RCA jacks.  That's what we did with the PS3.

Well, perhaps convincing your parents isnt the correct avenue. Get a job.  A decent size HD TV is more than affordable these days.

Ask random questions, just sit with them and watch tv and as questions about EVERYTHING until they get tired of you, then tell them why you are there instead of playing games.

Why do cow babies have to be coached out?
Why is there hair growing in areas im not used to hair growing?
Why do parents mention bees during the sex chat when bees do not have sex?
Are we there yet?

isn't this exactly the situation for which remote play for the vita is designed for? :smileywink:

 

just buy a 200$ vita, hook the PS4 up to your parents TV, turn it on, put a game in, and play it on that beautiful vita screen, sure it's a little small, and you can't use the dualshock 4, but it's better than nothing I suppose :smileyhappy:
