2 Prostitutes = 7 bacon sandwiches

20 bacon sandwiches = 1 prostitute.

That's your logic :wink:

Are you only paying £2 postage?

It's a pretty lame bonus for shelling out 430 notes! Unless that "special" controller is an extra one, then I'll shut up. :lol:

I only understand currency when it's converted into prostitutes whose worth is then deduced by bacon sandwiches, but when I paid £800 probably more for my PC which probably isn't as powerful as the xbox one and does a lot of stuff 'I don't even want' like picture editors etc, I didn't bat an eye. Maybe it was a lot more bacon sandwiches than I realise, but I think in life you get what you pay for, I wanted simplicity, power and reliability and I paid for it.

Back in 2005, I wonder what the £280 would actually be in todays money value? Whilst I do agree the price conversion is really off as playfully as I quote out of context figures, I'm not sure £429 is bad, if you get a free game with it? Or free gold membership? This is what ms can do to sweeten the blow without backtracking their figures, sure you can get a ps4 but you'd need to pay for a new game... (shut up about it still being cheaper lol). It's an issue for ms in my opinion, but there's brand loyalty.

I asked my brother if he'd get a PS4 or Xbox One without telling him anything, he said an Xbox One, I told him the prices, he said an Xbox One. I asked why and he said he loves xbox and live, if his mates got one, he'd get one - and apparently they're all saying the same thing. These are the kids of the age who would ask ma n pa until they got what they wanted.

Seriously?

They are seriously doing this?

An achievement as a selling point for day one purchases. There are no words.

Meanwhile I asked a friend last night which he would get and he said the PS4 because the One was too expensive at £429...whilst he looked up the prices on his £500 phone :roll:

What! :shock: I could probably build a half decent PC for that price.

iPhone 5 direct from Apple rather than through a network. Hundred quid more than the One, and about as useful if not connected to the internet.

Have to admit I have an iPhone, but I got it free and it replaced a phone I'd had for 5 years.

But I do find it odd that certain people are happy to spend £500 on a phone, and probably then do the same again a few months later when the next one comes out, but are complaining that the price of consoles is too high!

Suppose it's just me being logical again :roll:

Never bring logic into a purchase which involves emotion :D Seriously though Killer Instinct I remember playing that back in a dingey arcade in cyprus back in 1994 and the only thing I can remember was some cyborg pulling off his head and shooting me with a machine gun underneath. I could be wrong about that I was 19 at the time but it isn't really any incentive for me to get the xbox one.
