Sorry to hear that man. Honestly, just sit your parents down and talk to them. I was forutnate enough growing up that if my parents knew I wanted something very much, they loved to say they didn't get it, but they always did. ANyway, just talk to them, let them know that this is something special to you and that you won't ask for anything for a long time to come. Another thing, try asking for jsut the console then try to get games with your own money, that way having them spend only $250 looks a hell of alot better than $410.
