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.
