I heard about this earlier today. I think it is absolutely absurd. I know it is "the thing" to have this year, but is it really worth that kind of money? I think not...come on...wait a little while until the Christmas season is over and the newness wears off. They will be available in stores, at regular retail prices. People spending this kind of money on a gaming system that is worth maybe $500 at most really do have too much time and money. I am bothered because that kind of money could have done so much good. I mean...do you really need a game system? If you have extra cash like that just sitting around, why not do something with it that would help other people. I could think of so many things...donate do food banks (they are always running short this time of year), start a scholarship fund for students who want to create video games, donate to an organization that provides academic help to underprepared students, or to an organization that assists the elderly in making sure they have the basic necessities. I am really not trying to make anyone feel bad here. I think fun is important, and getting things like this every now and then is not a bad thing...I just don't understand paying that much for something that is worth only a fraction of the amount paid.
