    Just throwing out the question: How expensive is too expensive? Speaking as someone whose childhood before school was spent with his trusty Sega Genesis, throwing down half a grand for a new console and $60 a game just strikes me as mad expensive. Yeah I realize new technology = more money...but...man.

    Inflation...

    I usually wait until things go down. I rarely buy a game for more than $30-40, and buying used is a great way to find bargains.

    N64 games were $60 and $70. Those were cartridges though that had high licensing fees. There's no reason for this. A cd is still 10-15 cents to make and the production costs are still about the same from PS2/XBOX gen to XBOX360/PS3 gen.

    Games are the moneymaker, so they will get you where they can.
