I'm only saying BC because the first 18 months of a new consoles life suck. There is usually a draught of games and you end up buying things out of desperation you normally wouldn't. BC will help with fill that initial void.

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.
