I can see buying the PSP and one game. It's still a butload of money, but
what's up with some people buying the PSP + 4 or 5 launch titles? I wish I
had money to burn like that. heh.

(You'll notice I didn't post this in the PS2 board) Hopefully there's some
rational people here who are with me? =)

I got 4 launch titles, and have 5 or 6 on pre order (in the UK),
however some people just have their priorities wrong ;) 

I feel the same with regards to people who drive ferarri's ;)

Young, single males, with good jobs, money to burn.... etc. etc. ;-)

I'd love this lot too, but now too old, wife, two kids, no time etc. etc.

Sometimes I get a bit jealous, sometimes I think about it a bit more and
then don't !!!

When the DS came out I picked it up, but didn't buy any of the launch
titles. About a week later I picked up Sprung, then a few days after that I
picked up Super Mario 64 DS. I could have gotten the DS and several games
at launch, but I didn't have the extra that week.
Priorities are a big thing. I used to work with a guy who thought nothing
about dropping $8,000 on a telescope. but bitched about $20 sneakers. I
love my games, movies, manga, and anime. But I also have a wife and 2 boys,
so my fun money has decreased over the last few years. Now I wait for
sales, trade in old games, or save up. Now I have 6 DS games, just picked
up Mario Party Advanced, Yu-Gi-Oh 7 Trials to Glory, and ordered a bunch of
DVD's to add to my collection of 1503 titles. I love tax return time.
Once a few more games come out, I know what I am using my Reward Zone
certificates on.

Sweet :)  Last timeI counted, I had about 400 however since then I
have purchased several box sets:

Star Trek TNG all series
Star Trel DS9 all series
Stargate SG1 all available series
24 seasons 1,2,3
Lots of CSI, Will & Grace, Simpsons, Nip Tuck, Alias

I also own around 250 games across the board for the GC, Xbox, PS2 and
GBA/DS/PSP.

Those days will be gone very shortly, I have just purchased my first
house and move in April 29th. Priorities will change overnight, the
mortgage is an absolute BACK BREAKER, 40% of my income will go on the
mortgage payments alone.

I used to have tons of games, but started trading them in for credit when I
wanted new games but didn't have the funds. House payments are a bear, but
you have to have a roof to keep your games dry!

This is Sony's whole plan.

It worked with the PS1 - appeal to the 20 - 30 age group since they're got
money to spend for themselves. Tou can make more money from them than the
children who have to wait for once-a-year fake religious ceremonies or
birthdays.


Will it work though?

If you want the best you have to pay for the best. Sony sold 500,000
million units in the first 2 days in the US. Also lends credence to the
idea that adults and teenagers play the PS2/Xobx and kids play the
GameCube/GameBoy.

I'm an adult and I play PS2, Xbox, Gamecube and gameboy. I think you're
missing my point.
