Default How realistic is PS3?

Pretty darn realistic, and coveted to the extreme. But is it worth a human life?

Makes you wonder if it is really worth standing in a line days on end for something that won't sell for half of what they paid for it a year from now.
Sad.......

A guy I know works at best buy. One of his friends stayed in line for 2 days. He bought 3 ps3's!!! He went to the back of the line and sold two of them for $3,000 each and kept the 3rd. I might be doing that when the next greatest comes in

That's just wrong. I can't believe they let someone buy three PS3's.

If "they" will kill for a $10 crack rock or a $20 bet on the USC/Clemson game, a $4000 playstation does suprise me a bit.

Well a butt load of people have been robbed and beaten while walking to their car with a ps3. Somebody wants to play that thing pretty bad to pay 3 and 4 grand. That's a perfectly good Northstar chartplotter!!!

Quite simple, people are retards..

Anyone who pays 3 or 4 grand for a gaming system needs to get cranial x-rays, not that the x-rays will show anything because there ain't nothing there to see!

Buncha morons...

Then again, there could be a gaming forum out there talking about how dumb fisherman are to spend $8000 on marine electronics or $1500 for a rod/reel combo.


Everyone spends their money on what makes them happy.

It has nothing to do with spending money to be "happy" it's about stupid people paying 2,3,10 times the "retail" price just to be the first nerd to have it, or blowing someone's head off over something as insignifigant as a game system.

Yeah, I agree.

Much better to stick the the old ways and blow someone's head off over the $6 in his wallet...

What people spend their money on, and how much they spend for it, and the reasons for their spending, are all kind of up to them, don't you think?

jky,

They can choose to spend thier money how they want, and god bless the constitution and the military for keeping my rights and my freedom to sit here and say that anyone that spends more than retail on a product just to be the "first" to have it, is a moron.

Any jerk that would wait in line for 3 days for a PS3 or anything else and pay that kind of money for it is F******G RETARTED. IMHO.

I wonder if that kid thought as he laid dying on the floor that he gave his life for a worthy cause? Dipsh!t.

DARWIN STRIKES AGAIN!!!

Yeah,if you stand in line for hours,or pay thousands of $$$ for a video game that will be $100 in less than a year,then yes ,you qualify as retarted.
