That Guy said: What's up with all the Elf Avatar things? Maybe i'm out of the loop. Alright, Crazzyman, I spend maybe 30 bucks a month for my mobile phone. I've had it about a year now, and the last one I had I've had for about 3 years. Most people I know change up their phones once every 2-3 years or so, and probably spend more on service. I believe you are making a flawed comparison on mobile phones and the PS3. Last I checked, I don't carry my Ps3 everywhere with me, and I can't make phone calls with it. Also, people with Mobile phones (especially in the business world) consider the mobile phone to be a necessity. I can't make the same claim with the PS3.
well you see, u can`t watch with your mobile 1080p Full HD moovies, and well, you can`t play games which looks like CG moovies, you see my point.. ? =) It`s ok for you to buy new cell for 300-1000$, spent 30$/monthy, but hard to pay 100$ more for ps3? =)) You can`t because you just haven`t see ingame so many PS3 AAA titles, but this year you will see.. and then ps3 will become necessity.
