I don't see why everyone gets their panties in a bunch when hardware vendors release their new hardware. New stuff comes out all the time and you are going to be pissed because you bought Ivy Bridge when obviously Intel will release new processors afterward? Why would it be any different for a phone or tablet? New cars come out every year and some are completely remodeled every few years and they cost 20-100X what the handsets, tablets and other hardware costs yet people don't blow a gasket over it.
Buy hardware knowing it will be "old" in 6 months.
ill add people that buy game consoles are idiots
YES utter idiots
why buy JUST a game machine whenmy pc does all your game machine can and guess what I CAN PHYSICALLY take out a grpahics card say my gtx640 and put in a quadro 6000
then i can play music
WHICH the above two can also be done with the latest updateable codexes for video and audio thus again im updateable
then i got ability to not only have opensource applications for free BUT i can write my own or if im lazy buy commerical ones
then i get to chat and use it like a telephone and even can stream via somehting like netflix OR even create my own video games , music and applications
BOY can i buy a console for the same price now? BOY being smart isnt that hard....try it get a bang for your buck we in canada still have a blank media levy....
