As you all know, I got got. At first, I was in shock over the iPod, camcorder and GPS. Then it hit me that I’d put my Xbox 360 in the trunk to take to UPS to sent back to Microsoft to replace my device that was suffering from the Red Ring of Death. Of course the tambourine tossers took it.
Now, I’m in the market for a new gaming console. My initial reaction was to just replace my Xbox. I still have the hard drive so all I need is a used arcade version that runs for $169 at Game Stop. I also have a few games and both controllers along with my Guitar Hero guitar. So I’m set, right?
Then Sherm and Sinclair were all in my Twitter ear (ll) telling me that I should go with a PS3. While the prospect of a Blu-Ray player is nice now, I know that it will go on sale eventually when the Blu-Ray gets more popular. Plus the $399 price tag is hard to swallow. Yet, those two were telling me I’d love the PS3. They also pulled my coat to the fact that the PS3 now has a bundle at Best Buy for $399 that includes two games. That along with a 10 percent off car could make the console more affordable.
But I’m hesitant. I’ve enjoyed my Xbox 360 and wouldn’t mind going back to old faithful. And I’m worried that talks of a price cut could mean I’d buy a PS3 like a week before it gets $100 cheaper which is one of the most frustrating things that could happen to a human being. Are the PS3 graphics that much better anyway?
So I’m calling on the TSS fam for answers. I know where Sherm and Darius stand, but I want some more insight before I make that plunge. And if you really want me to get a Playstation, don’t hesitate to drop some pennies in the collection plate on the way out.
