Every PS3 made since the removal of the Emotion Engine chip has been a budget PS3.

A PS3...With an even cheaper Blu-Ray player? So this PS3 would be held together with packing tape and pipe cleaners?

What do you mean what game can you play? and play games 1 by 1?

I've been playing on an Xbox Arcade with only a 256MB memory card. As long I can save files onto it. Sure I can't play XBL downloadable games but the loading times didn't seem to bother me. They didn't seem to take that long especially the open world games. I'm used to the Wii, PS1 and 2 loading times.
There's no point telling stupid people that they're stupid. They're too stupid to know that they're stupid. Wasted effort.

Why don't poor people take up a new hobby?

I don't collect classic cars because I can't afford to.


1st of all... You are being an insensitive ****. Not everyone is a trust funder or living middle class.

Secondly gaming is actually relatively quite cheap compared to other hobbies. Especially comparing entertainment hours vs. price.

Not the cheapest hobby but cheaper than many other hobbies.

Mocking someone for not affording food is insensitive. He was just being honest. Video games are not a poor person hobby. Hobbies require spending money. Buying a budget console and 1 or 2 games a year makes it as much a hobby as buying 5 stamps and calling it a hobby.

Gaming is a pretty cheap hobby. Even current gen.

Not to mention you could go PS2 + a ton of games for cheap.

Mocking someone for not having luxuries that you have is a jerk move.

If you have a sports car, are you saying it is not a jerk move to mock people who can not afford one?
