Ok, it's a bit rediculous I know. And I may look like a miser. But the way I see it, 2010 is going to see AT LEAST the announcement of the xbox 720. Going by this logic of 3 full price game purchases within the next year, that's about 170 toward either the purchase of the new system or some games. In these tough economic times where people are diving into dumpsters for a meal and whatnot, it makes sense to raid the bargain bins for deals and wait for the new games to cool off and pick them up aftermarket. Then, I can apply my savings toward the new system and look like a pimp with my new xbox 720 on launch day.
