    Can't afford a PS4 at release date crew

    Well I spent all my money and now i'm literally too broke to get the PS4. Is there anyone else in the same boat as me?

    It just sucks to spend like a thousand bucks on my PS3 over its lifetime and then its only worth 200 dollars.

    What are you guys gonna do if you can't get a PS4 on release date?

    What could you have possibly spent all your money on that was more important than the PS4?

    You could or maybe your landlord is into his gaming and if you just explain your situation he may understand and even give you a month rent free

    Careful with that, the PS4 supposedly runs cool, you won't be able to use it to keep yourself warm!

    This is true, but I don't think this will ever change! It takes a lot of money to make a decent game and companies cannot afford to sell their games at a loss! It's a shame but I guess it will always be like it!

    I know I have many life expenses, but I make close to $700 a week and the PS4 will only cost me $549, I should be right.
    but this generation I won't be trying to collect every first party title, i'll just buy one game a month for either vita or PS4 and play the **** out of it for that month.

    First up Knack.

    I'm in the same boat. About to spend a few grand on some high-end audio gear, a receiver, a brand-new 55'' Bravia TV, an entertainment unit and speaker stands (been dreaming about all this for ages).

    As much as I hate to admit it - the PS4 will have to wait...

    I would like a new TV with better picture quality but it's either that or the PS4, PS4 wins hands down for me!

    The TV I have is good but would love one with sharper quality!

    Personally, I think that's exactly the wrong way around. You need to invest in some high-quality gear first in order to do the PS4 any justice - even if it means to hold out on the console for a few months longer. I still don't understand how someone can play 1080p games on a SDTV.

    The TV I have is HD but it only goes up to 1080i, I know there is not THAT much difference but my friend has a smart TV and the picture quality is much better than mine, he has a PS3 with exactly the same set up and games!

    I have the money in the bank waiting but the games I want do not exist until next year, and many of the ones that do are multi platform and can be played on PC so I decided to upgrade my PC.

    I was really worried if I can save enough money to get the PS4, but then my wife surprised me on my birthday. She gave me a 400 giftcard to the local gameshop, and told me that she has reserved me a Playstation 4! Best birthday ever

    I bought a new graphics card and power line adapters. I'll wait for the games I actually want before buying a PS4.

    I pretty much slammed my tax return on PS4...otherwise I wouldn't be able to afford it, bills up to my ass... but even if I didn't have tax money come in I would have found a way... collect bottles and cans, catch buses instead of driving, cut back on iced coffees, gone without junk food... spend $60 a week on that... so simply little things add up to the cost of a PS4 in no time, sort of... PS4 is $549 here in the great southern land.

    One thing I wasn't going to do this generation is trade in my PS3 and games and get jack for them...PS3 will still be played way more than my PS4... i've only got Knack and KillZone for the first year as other parts of the year will be taken up with Mario Kart U and finishing off certain PS3 games... I've got enough games to last me 3 lifetimes, it's sad that I can't get the time to play everything I want to play but that's life.
