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)

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.
