Walking out on PS3, waiting for Wii

2old2play reminds us to buy consoles because we want them and the games, not because we're victims of hype. It seems simple enough, but the story describes a trip to a Toys 'R' Us in search of a Wii, only to find four PS3s instead. We can identify with the author's pit in his stomach while leaving the store empty-handed; the hype says this is the rarest, most sought-after console, so he wasn't sure if he was making a mistake by walking away.

These console choices are personal. Stay stronger than a company's ad budget, and pick the one -- or more -- that's right for you.
