Console Costs

A lot of buzz seems to be going around today about the supposed costs of the new PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles coming out. The prices that keep getting quoted are around $400 to $500 dollars, which in my opinion is insane! Although, this isn't that suprising when you think about how much more computer like the consoles have become; watch movies, play games, connect to the internet, etc. I wonder if there will ever come a point where there are no computer games, just console games. With such a high price tag though these machines will keep new comers and moderate gamers from buying them. Who wants to pay $5oo for a device that will use only occasionaly? Especially since the Nintendo Revolution is rumored to be around the $150 range. Gizmodo has a great little blurb about it: [Speaking to Japanese economic website Toyo Keizai, he stated that Sony’s aim for PS3 is “for consumers to think to themselves ‘I will work more hours to buy one’. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else.” ] Apparantly if it came down to food or a PS3 he wants you to forgo the food and buy the new console. If anyone is willing to forgo eating to buy one, will you get me one too...please? =D

Why was the last post removed by the author? By author, do they mean it was removed by you or by the person who made the post? :D

I actually do have a blog name and password for this thing, just never got around to setting up a page. I probably check your blog more than I do my xanga. I haven't worked on mine for who knows how long. Actually... I think I have made more postings this summer than I have during the academic year, but that's still not saying much.

Actually I have no idea who made that first comment, the person who write it deleted it before I got a chance to read it.
