    Except with this, you don't have to buy points. You directly pay for the stuff.


    Sony just making it easier for people to buy their stuff.
    I don't see the harm.
    the things they'll use this for prob wont be like vc but probly buying bonuses for games etc.

    it just shows how bad they want money. i mean cmon. is that even a needed component? no, all it does is make it easier for them to get your money. i really hope it is just a rumor, i really do. if not that is sad. with them charging $50 more for the ps3 in canada, and now going to charge like $235 dollars more in the UK, then all i can smell is a greedy, dirty, hog.
    you know what that is called? its called making up their losses from the wapping 679,000 consoles theyve sold here. so they take it out on other countries. it was very brass of them to think anyone would pay that for a console, period, let alone one with problems still lurking 2 months later that their new update didnt do jack to fix. but, that of course, is my opinion.

    Well the most obvious reason is Consumer Confidence.
    How do you get confidence from borrowing some elses money? Its no different than asking money from your mom.

    Emergency situations and no direct link to bank account are two major reasons if you need a few

    So speaking for yourself it does appear true that you shouldn't probably have one, especially after reading this last statement. You are implying that around 90% of the adult population is stupid, which is kind of ironic in your case, as that clearly proves my theory of you living in your own little fantasy world.
    I have $2,000 sitting in my bedroom in a fire safe box. I also have another $5,000 sitting in a cd that I can write checks with. Those are both of my emergency funds. They do not get spent unless its an emergency. No need for a credit card.

    Theres that small portion of the population that actually pays it off every month. People who have credit card debt arent completely stupid, just stupid with their money.

    I guess you don't know what Consumer Confidence is? I'm sure when you have a credit card you don't go to ask your mum to borrow some money..do you?

    You wasted money on a safe to put $2000 dollars in which could be in the bank gaining interest.

    DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

I forget. But the point is... well, I forget that too. Marge, you know who I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?"

    So, you don't use a bank card or anything?

    Honestly, i wish there was something like this on the Wii for VC games.

    It's probably better that there's not, or I'd waste a lot of money on those. Some of them are good, though.

    There's very few of them that I don't have, but then I'd have to hook up ALL of my systems, which just makes a mess in the living room.

    Like Sonic. I'm still not sure why i bought Sonic... I have 2 Genesis', and I may have it on DC, too, but I don't remember.

    It's a good game, though. I remember when it came out I played it and hard drivin' all summer, between visits to the pool.

    Hehehe... that's good.

    Maybe he's holding onto it in case society collapses. money won't be any good then, though, unless you're using it for toilet paper.

    I've got about $3000 or so sitting in a tall safe right next to this computer. It's not in cash form, though This is the kind of currency that goes boom.
