Three hundred squids for a game console is really still too much. Bought previous consoles for the children at the same price and still the games get stale regardless of how good they are graphically. Must admit though the previous consoles weren't internet enabled.

I think you do have to consider the fact that its a blue ray dvd player also plus internet etc.

It's not so much the price of the console but the price of the games that puts me off.

Around £40 for a 'top-end' title is a bit steep I think.

Haven't top end console games always been around that amount? £40 for many hours of entertainment is less than you'd pay to go to the cinema or just about any other entertainment source.

Well, looking at who the console game market is truly aimed at, it's a lot of money for a game.

After waiting a few years, I've splashed out on about 70 PS2 titles at an average price of £15 each, pretty much all top-end, not second hand. So that's around £1000.

The same number of top-end titles for a PS3 would set you back (at an average of £35 each) around £2500!.

The advantage of being an older bugger of 38 instead of a teenager is that I can wait!

(Me thinks this should have been in Consumer Watch)
