Question…. why call them console peasents when you spend so much more on a console? Sure not as expensive to go buy the console by itself for 400$ – 500$ but the damn things will cost you 50$ to 60$ a year. And If you make that console last 7 years until a new one come then you will pay about another 350$ to play online and on top of 60$ games unless you buy used but either way you'll pay. So in reality your going to pay some where around a couple thousand in the end of the consoles life cycle. With pc its going to last even longer if its built with recent enough technology and games will be so much cheaper with no paying for online. So you may pay like a higher price at the moment when you pay for a pc but it is a huge money saver in the long run. I'm still getting a ps4 but I won't pay for online every month and ill stick to its f2p it has to offer, netflix and eventually Ill pay for a couple months to play with othergames online. And buy used games for consoles people seriously do your selfs a favor unless your a serious collector. And yes I use pc and consoles but still why call them peasants? They obviously have lots of money to spend

Great way of saving money: Play free to play games, some of them are realy good, like War Thunder and TF2, or buy realy cheap games like Garry's Mod.

3ds is definitely better than the vita. And the 3DSXL bundle for a link between worlds and the gold 3DS is something I would definitely buy if I had 220 dollars to spend.

Sony aren't playing the PSN store January sale atm it IS competing with Steam with games like Ni No Kuni for £5 and Persona 4 for £15. It's not as good as Steam but goodness me over these past months they've been coming pretty damn close.
