    well its not quite like that. Basically there is the ghetto side, but what ends up happening is that these guys from the ghetto (generalizing here) will buy and resell. Thus on launch day, they were fighting with eachother to get these systems, because a Ps3 can sell for over 5 times its cost. Most of the people in these lines were different minority groups there to make profit.

    This is not all the locations, most were fine enough. But the Electronic stores near the rough areas were basically battle grounds.

    Lets put it this way, i talked to one hispanic guy the other day. He was able to buy 10 ps3's on launch day, he made about $25,000. From reselling them on ebay. A lot of other ghettolicious people had the same idea. Therefor, it will cause problems in certain neighborhoods.

    Umm what makes you say that? Do you know her or any of the people on this board. I could save up for one if I wanted but that would be a waste since I dont want or need a PS3. If at all I'd use that money to get a 360 and Gears of War...and maybe 1 other great title for the 360. The sony promotion is great for those lucky few who got it but does nothing to change the horrible launch its had so far. Not to mention the people in the US who didn't benefit from this.

    1. You quoted HIM.
    2. Why would he assume he knows HER. As in not everyone would know that perosn is a girl by using him or her. Next time champ, use names.
    3. You were not clear nor precise. Dont get emo over it and blame other people for you mistakes.

    Lastly, his question was directed at surfin, asking a non subjective question. He wasnt addressing you, which is funny. YOu go into assuming his intent, and then start explaining that you could afford one if you wanted to.. who cares. Unless you want us to start calling you a "her" from now on.

    It was just a hit at the price of PS3 really lol.

    I could buy one if I just saved up.

    And as for the PC question my father bought my old one, I bought my laptop out of my savings account and my father bought the two new PC's we got.
