I love games just as much as others on this site, and I want to pay a little as possible without sacrifice of quality. But my priorities are country before console gaming. I do believe in freedom in consumer choice, but China as an economic power does have an advantage in pricing due to lower cost in material and wages whether it's unfair or not. It's not even a political issue because myself and others work in the steel industry so I'm all for leveling the economic playing field to help my family and other families financially survive. So more specifically, it's family before gaming. If you don't have or know families that can be affected by this, at least make it country before gaming. Bottom line, get your priorities straight. Let's not get blinded by creature comforts, and let's not get blinded by politics.

Funny, because that's EXACTLY what you're doing.

I direct you to this guy:

The US tariffs are only a sloppy/dirty way for the struggling US government to justify extra taxes to cover their astronomical financial liabilities. Chinese manufacturing won't take a hit, they have contracts going on for years, and after that, other options. Those who WILL take a hit are the companies who have business based in the US economy; they'll either lower their profit margins or pass the cost onto US consumers.
