I think it's lamo that parents would buy all three. To me that just teaches a kid that A) we'll get you whatever you want and B) we don't mind you wasting all of your time playing games. Doesn't teach a kid much of anything. Personally I can't justify paying $1k for some gaming systems+what ever you might spend on games, I just don't have that kind of time, but I can see where a person who is very serious about it would go out and get all three. Then again, some people don't understand why I might buy a BMW when a Hyundai will do. In other words, to each their own.
