While fanboy console wars have calmed down over the last year or so (thank god), the underlying tensions remain. I think this is because most people only have one console, so they feel some psychological need to believe that the console they've chosen is superior -- in other words, it's all about emotions, not facts. The solution, then, is for everyone to buy every system.
Retailer Kmart, luckily, is offering a ton of sweet deals on consoles, so those missing the Wii or 360 will be able to complete their system collection. "How good are these deals?" you may be asking. Here's the answer:
- Wii Console for $149.99
- Xbox Arcade for $129.99 (Other 360 deals: Xbox 360 Elite consoles (does not include new Xbox 360 250GB) priced at $199.99. Final Fantasy XIII, Splinter Cell Conviction or Modern Warfare 2 Super Elite bundles will be priced at $279.99)
- PSP "Entertainment Packs" $129.99 (those are the PSPs bundled with either Hannah Montana or Ratchet and Clank.)
It might be the "fat" Xbox 360, but $129 for that thing is an AMAZING deal. There's no PlayStation 3 deal announced.
