Sony had been making Playstations for over 1000 years. In 1995, they made
the first Playstation, in the year 2000, Playstation 2 was made, in 2006, they
made Ps3, and so on and so forth until Ps16. At this point, they realised Ps17
isn't a very good name, as the number is too big. So they used words instead of
And in the year 2998, the PsS was born. This is the Playstation that was still
going strong in 3003, untill of course, the arrival of the PsD was born. Graphics
had entered the ninth-dimension, and so the look of life began to mimic the games
( such as Tomb Raider X, starring Lara Croft's great great great x 34 nephew,
Gara Hoat ). With power like that, it's gonna cost alot, even though they're not
going to last very long. The price? $1000.
This was a wee bit out of Fry's price range. At times like these, he wished
he hadn't revealed his secret PIN number to Mom's three sons. 1077 was the PIN
number. Not that you need to know that, but he insisted I put it down here.
It was June the 21st, the longest day of the year, and the start of Summer.
Though he treated it as a normal day. He donned on his clothes, woke up Bender
and went to work. There, he met Leela, the love of his life ( of course, she didn't
know this ).
"Hello, Fry" she replied. " Got any ideas on how to earn some
extra money yet?"
" I'm going to ask for a pay rise."
"What?" Leela exclaimed, " Your going to risk your job just
so you can buy that hunk-o-junk?"
" If that what it takes," Fry said. "And it's not junk!"
"Please, stop bickering!" said a voice they knew belonged to the
Professor. "I have good news!"
"Uh-oh" said Bender. "I don't like the sound of that!"
"You'll be making a delivery to Vergon 3, a planet that's a little more
devolped than that Vergon 6 that imploded three years ago." the Proffesser
"What are we..." Leela started, but the Professor yelled, "Just
go, dammit, just go!"
The delivery wasn't a normal delivery. They just landed on Vergon Three, threw
the package to the thingimijig waiting ouside and went straight back, No death,
no hold-ups, no 'crew-member-accidently-becoming-ruler-of-planet' situations,
just a calm flight.
When they returned, they sat down, Bender with a beer and Fry with a can of
Slurm, and switched on the T.V. They moaned as soon as it was switched on, as
the credits for All My Circuits was rolling.
"Dammit!" Leela said. "They said todays episode had a great
"Oh well, at least we haven't missed the ads!" Bender said.
"Are you always stuck in a stuffy old house with a stupid Playstation
S?" the female voice on the T.V asked. "Cos if you are, then you should
get a PLAYSTATION D!!! Now you can sit in a stuffy old house with a console worth
having!" Then it showed footage of all the games, like Monster Truck Wrestling,
Death Factory 4 and President Evil Veruca.
Fry turned to ask Leela whether she was convinced that the PsD wasn't a piece
of junk, but she wasn't there.
"Where the hell did Leela go?" Bender asked.
They then heard Leela's hovercar. They looked outside to see Leela zooming
off to the Mall.
"I think she's being convinced." said Fry.
Sure enough, Leela came back clutching a PsD. Her hair was a mess and she looked
worn out - probably the crowds. She was aslo holding a copy of 2000 AD: The stupid
ages. Fry saw this. Fry did not approve. Nevertheless, he helped Leela put the
stuff down, and led her to her seat.
Leela smiled and said, " You really wanna go on it, don't you?"
"I sure do!" said Fry.
"Well, I suppose if you set it up..." Leela started, but Fry had
started to plug the PsD into the T.V - how he could even put a plug into a socket
was a mystery to Leela.
"Yeah, yeah!" Fry said once he had finished.
"I was about to say that if you set it up, you could have a turn after
me!" she said with a cheeky smile. She turned it on and started playing.
A message came up on the screen - 'YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER A STUPID ERA. DO
WISH TO CONTINUE? PRESS X TO DO SO. PRESS ?.'
She pressed X.
'YOU HAVE PRESSED X. WELCOME TO THE YEAR 2000. PREPARE TO ENTER!"
Then, without warning, the T.V became larger and larger, untill it hit the
walls and the roof. It then turned green and swirly - it looked like a portal.
"What the hell is going on?" Bender asked.
"Don't ask me?" Leela replied.
"YOU WILL NOW ENTER...THE STUPID AGES! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!"
And suddenly, Leela was sucked into the portal.
As she was being sucked into the portal, she said, "Listen to my final
words... I am seriously regretting buying this game."
And then she was gone. But not as gone as Fry and Bender thought...
She appeared on the T.V screen - she had been sucked into the game! But this
wasn't any old game - it had been taken back to the year 2000...
"Oh my god..." said Bender.
She was in the world of 128 bit.
TO BE CONTINUED....
There's more coming soon!
And here's something I'd like to point out - if Leela hasn't got good depth
perception (as mentioned in the first ever episode), how come she's allowed t
o ride the ship?
