People have to be out of their freaking gourds. Every year it’s the same thing with the “hot new bling-bling toy” of the season…..people are over-obsessed about getting something new the DAY it comes out. You see it on the news all over the place – people getting hit, stabbed, shot, and thrown in jail……..over what?
A FREAKING VIDEO GAME SYSTEM!
So it does Blu-Ray (WOOP-DEE-DOO!), and the games are just *that* much sharper. Man, people are just not happy with what they have, and have to have the NEW Playstation! Even though there are thousands of games that people have not played yet on their PS2/PSX systems, they HAVE to have this one.
The system has glitches, the backwards compatability doesn’t work right yet – there are WAY too many problems to justify blowing $600 for a GAME SYSTEM! Let me reiterate this…..IT’S………..A………GAME………SYSTEM! If people are smart, they’ll wait a while for the bugs to be worked out and the price drops a bit – THEN go get it.
So in the meantime, go enjoy the games you have for PS2/PSX, Gamecube, XBOX, 360 (even that one is overpriced), Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, and others. Come on….just because something is over a year old doesn’t mean you throw it away.
If you are in line right now waiting for one of those, I pity you…..I really do. You truly have no life – if all you can think about is some silver-coloured GAME SYSTEM.
For those who actually got one, I hope the concussions were worth it and the mortgage company understands why your payment will be late.
