I would hope so, this isnt 2006 anymore, we live in an age where people pay more than $1.000 for phones and other devices so some of that "disposition" should rub off a little on the console market, and considering its something thatll last you for ~6/7 years and help insure a more significant leap over the previous generation, I say bring it.
Why are people bring up the cost of phones as if it is remotely relatable? Your monthly phone plan pays for most of the cost of the device. Does your monthly subscription to PS Plus contribute a single dime to the upfront cost of your PlayStation? No? I didn't think so.
