Not uncommon where? You are engaging with a global community here.

Something you should probably consider, too.

I know multiple families in the US, Canada, Germany, Japan, UK and Australia that on average spend around $650 at christmas, and $450 on birthdays for their kids, especially when they have few or just one child.

Not everyone is living on a shoestring.

And those families and those countries represent the average? All of those countries you mention are in the top 30 richest countries for GDP per capita. What socio-economic strata are you and your acquaintances in? It would supprise me if you were all in the global median band. Or even in the median band for all countries where the consoles are sold. Perhaps you don't really understand how rich you and your acquaintances are on a global scale. You might not be one of the 1% but you will most likely be in the upper 25%. The fact that you know multiple families in 4 regions of the globe and you know them well enough to know how much they spend on their kids every birthday and Christmas is itself strong evidence that you and your acquaintances are highly likely to be among the wealthiest 25% of people in the world. That's not "the average person".

Even though my X1 is unplugged (because there are no games for it currently) having all three is definitely the way to go!!

I am NobleTeam360 and I approve this message.



What kid gets a grand between Christmas and their birthday?! Thats insane and wrong. Also two weeks salary..I hate to tell you that most Americans don't make that in two weeks. Thats what $17-18/hr? Also adults have house payments/rent, car payments, car and house/renters insurance, medical insurance, cell phone bill, ect and don't get me started if you have kids. Most middle-lower class don't have that free money. I 100% agree owning all three is ideal and would be great. But financially its not plausible unless you or your parents are loaded.



I agree...but then again, I hardly have money for games, let alone for entire consoles.

Aint nobody got time for that!!! Like seriously... A 20-hour rpg is pushing it for me...



well we will see, if some more of the better xbox eclusives come to pc, than there is no need to buy a xboxone.
the exclusives are allready weak, and if the few strong ones come to pc in hd and 60 fps than there is absolutly no reason to buy a console for those games.



I always have all 3. I never want to miss an exclusive. Hate that feeling. I also don't have console loyalty. I have game loyalty. :)

Absolutely not, it's redundant.

you do something wrong when you dont get payed 17-18$/hr...   i made 15€ an hour for working parttime in a job that doesnt need qualification.    and i dont think that family just means parents...
