Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Translators
At 31 years old I've just realised that Penguins are basically just chocolate covered bourbon biscuits.
The real cost of Console gaming (My story)
So since I'm a newly PC gamer, I decided to evaluate how much I spent from November 2008 through October 2014 my Xbox 360.
Xbox 360 - $300
Extra wireless controller and charging kit - $60
40 games averaging around $45 each - $1800
My xbox rrod for the 5th time and Best Buy refused to fix it, new Xbox - $200
Controllers broke, got another two - $120
Scuff controller - $150
3 name changes - $30
Stupid ass avatar outfits - $20
Turtle Beaches - $50
5 years of xbox live - $300
Total of $3,030. HO LEE CRAP
My build cost me $1200 dollars, (still waiting on getting a decent 1080p monitor, a wired 360 controller and decent headset). I've spent around $100 on 50 games. So even if you throw in the monitor, headset, and controller that's about $1550 dollars. I'm really shocked how much I spent on console gaming in under six years.
Edit: Thanks to whoever gave me gold, you popped my cherry. Also I'd like to add to the people who are telling me some of the things I bought/ways I spent my money were stupid and it doesn't reflect on console gaming. I know that, that's why I put "(My Story)" in the title, most console users wouldn't spend $150 on a custom controller but I did.
