The Playstation 3 is a Real Bargain!

As gamers across the globe continue to lament the ridiculously obnoxious price that the Playstation 3 is slated for, one lone bastion in the world helps us put things into perspective.  Slate (http://www.slate.com/id/2141633/) has a lovely article that shows that the Playstation 3 can be better than marriage, and is much cheaper too.  They suggest that the PS3 be priced closer to 100K.  And looking at the math that they present, it seems rather plausible!  (Of course, every dummy knows that 78% of all statistics and numbers are made up).  So maybe instead of looking for a girlfriend, I should be looking at investing in a new gamefriend.  But then again, you still go to bed lonely if you forgo matrimonial bliss and opt for the cold hard shell that is a marvel of technological wonder!  Maybe instead I’ll just go buy the new Nintendo, save my cash for the rituals of mating, and hope that any future girlfriend will want to make me change my “Wii” mentality into “we” mentality.

You might find this interesting - about console prices, both actual and inflation-adjusted. Like how in inflation-adjusted dollars, every nintendo system is actually cheaper than the one before it.
