    Now, there seems to be a strange divide in the gadget tech world when its comes to what we pay for things & what we deem acceptable.

    Alot has gone around the internet forums and similar games news website on the reported cost of the Playstation 4.

    With prices mooted around the 400 mark, there have been some outcries from some of the dark corners of the internet, claiming a price around this would be far too expensive.

    Well, as much as it would pain me to part with that amount of money for anything, I am indeed a cheap bastard, we need to look at this in perspective.

    I bought my PS3 for 300 a good few years ago, 6 years later its still bringing my pleasure. That equates to 50 a year if your maths is bad as mine, please feel free to check your calculator, which is more than likely an app on your phone!


    Phones, like the many dullards out there in the world who upgrade their phones every 12 - 18months so they can show off the latest model mostly have to stump up the cash to contribute towards the new phone, which can be very expensive if you want to keep up with the trends.

    Thats not counting the cost of the multiple tablets we have, the old ones of which are gaterhing dust in the "Guitar Wii Hero corner", as I have dubbed it.


    The Playstation 4, I will no doubt purchase not soon after launch, yet people seem to be in outrage at the proposed / rumored cost!!

    I will no doubt get many years of joy from my beloved future PS4 as a games machine and whatever other forms of entertainment it will bring, which will be seriously cheaper in the long term compared to the upgrades to my other devices I fork out

    So why the anger!!! Get angry at the firms who bring out a new iteration of their devices every 7-12 months & stop supporting previous models just a few years later!

    We should thank our lucky stars Sony / Microsoft / Nintendo dont adopt the annual upgrade model like other companies do!!

    The PayStation 4. It's NCP's latest parking ticket machine. Very swish.

    Wonderful interpretation of the word 'perspective' there.

    And 'my'.

    also, at 425 I am still laughing because now- whenever I play Pro Evo (after taking it out of my TV cabinet to stop it from burning my house down) it's kicks out so much heat that I have to open a window!

    Saves me a FORTUNE on heating bills!
