My decision was easy.
I was strolling through Walmart and I noticed they had the Pro incorrectly listed for $299. I said to myself "self, I know you haven't bought a console since the Nintendo 64 days, but doesn't that pro version usually cost $399?"
Self didn't answer, so I had to call someone else to confirm. For $100 off, I figured the worst I could do is sell it on ebay for a profit. Thankfully it rang up with the $299 price (I'm sure some employee got in trouble for pricing it wrong). I got home, opened it up "just to see what the hubbub was about" and got hooked on playing games again.
