I play a lot of video games. Call it silly. Call it childish. I love it. Always have. Hopefully always will. I don't even want to begin to think about how much money I've handed to the video game industry in exchange for their goods. It's a lot. Usually I'm pretty good about being patient and waiting for the right time to buy though. I check clearance, search craigslist, compare prices, and if there is a video game within 30 miles it is safe to say that I know about it.
This summer however I jumped the gun. I wanted a Playstation 3. I had already started my summer job and I had the money so I started doing research. I found a bunch of different bundles and discounts and picked out the one I wanted. Amidst all this searching I also stumbled upon some rumors. Rumors of price drops, and one of a complete redesign of the system. I went back and forth in my mind. Should I just splurge and buy now...or be patient and then get the better end of the deal. Well of course I just went for it.
Now cut to today. I'm standing in a Best Buy kicking myself as I stare at the newer, smaller, and much much sleeker Playstation 3 consoles. Oh and it's also 100 dollars cheaper. Am I bummed? Yes...very.
