PS3 to make you poorer than you think

October 31, 2006

You’ve got to love those hidden costs when you buy things; the PS3 will NOT be an exception.

The system, a few games, the PS1/2 memorycard reader, and extra controllers will cost you nearly a thousand dollars. But what are the hidden costs that will make you even poorer? The PS3 will gobble up energy at about 380 watts. The power unit will be twice as big as the Xbox 360’s, which was quite big already. If you plan on buying a next generation Playstation, make sure you are lighting up your Cuban cigars with a hundred dollars bills – [i]minimum[/i]. You’ll need it.
