I swung by Best Buy yesterday for my weekly what-newly-released-CDs-are-under-ten-bucks trip to find a growing campsite out front. I was briefly perplexed by the number of homeless people who would choose that area for bedding down when I remembered just how stupid people (read: boys in their twenties) can be. OMFG!! The PS3 is coming out!!1!!1 LOLOLOL!!! And some geeks just can’t get it fast enough. I guess I should give these guys some credit – perhaps they are planning to turn around and sell it on ebay with an exorbitant markup. For that I would salute them. Otherwise they just deserve ridicule and possibly even BB pellets.
At this point it’s not the price or the unwieldy waiting list that will keep me away from the PS3. Rather it’s the sheer evilness of Sony. I truly hope they go out of business. And since I’m trying to stick with convictions these days (I’m still not paying for TV!), I’m avoiding as many Sony products as I can (okay, I do get their blank DVDs when on sale). And don’t try that “but they lose money on every PS3 they sell” crap on me – hey morons, they lose even more money when that PS3 just sits on a shelf in GameStop collecting dust.
Maybe someday when our finances are more in order I’ll take a look at upgrading to an XBOX 360 or Nintendo WHEEEEEEE! But for now I’ll just say no, and keep playing my YARGH! pirated PS2 games.
