to further strengthen my stance on why its not difficult to have $$ for a launch...I posted this in general forum..
You don't need a high paying job to be able to get a console and several games at launch.
If you had any brains at all, you knew the console would launch holiday season of '05. It was a given, and a lot of us have known it for well over a year.
Thats a LOT of time to save $$ for anyone. Even something as simple as saving an extra measly $25.00 a month gets you quite a bit.
By less junk food, by less anything.
Kage360(local friend and launch party attendee) has known to be ready financially come november for a loong time, weve done this b4 with consoles so in our case, we go overboard maybe
Watching the market and listening to what other companies had to say made it obvious. Sony wouldnt be ready and MS had too be, theyd have the only system out for Holiday 05. A little common sense goes a long way.
I told everyone I knew to be prepared, and they started a long time ago.
As with everything, preparation is key
Just like you sony fans should already have started saving for the grill master 3.
you know it wont be out for another 8 to 12 months here...and you know it wont be cheap. so why the fuck are you here posting and bitching about prices, when you should be out making extra $$ so you can fill up Kutaragis pockets?
you have a LOT of time to save up, and thats a prime example of why some have $$ ready for launch, and some do not.
dont bitch when the ps3 is 500.00 and you had all this time to save up. I'll put Infamous Ones foot up yer ass and you'll enjoy it
