Or, you know, you could buy a new HD...
Here's the problem with what you're saying, ZeronHitaro:
1. You seem to agree that having a new handheld that's more expensive than a 6 year old system is not unreasonable.
2. Sony makes a redesign of their system that's almost certainly even cheaper to manufacture than the old system but is functionally exactly the same (other than a really minor HD upgrade which is something you could just do on your own anyway).
3. You then arbitrarily decide that since this system is "new" the logic in point 1 shouldn't apply for some reason.
4. Then you go on a completely off-topic rant about digital games or something.
If you buy a new computer; same company, same amount of RAM memory, ect; however you're buying a model with 750GB HD memory instead of the 500GB of your old computer, do you not call it a 'new computer'?
If somebody tried to sell me a new computer that was exactly the same as my 6 year old computer other than an incremental increase in the hard drive size and it didn't
cost a fraction of what I paid 6 years ago then I would smack them in the face.
