Titanfall looks great, and the bundle is certainly tempting, but I'm flat out for the next 3 months or so (selling our house as our new one wraps up construction, then moving), and so I would barely...

My non-gamer wife managed to surprise me with a PS4 for Christmas. I assumed it wouldn't happen because she didn't pre-order, but she must have found one of the last ones in Australia!

I almost caved in last night and ran over to my local EB at 11pm to get in line for an Xbox One, but I fired up The Last of Us and played that to calm myself down instead. I'm really enjoying that...

Yup - I want a PS4 now (well, when it releases in Australia in 9 days - my wife's birthday), but I can wait. The only game I'd get for it on launch day is Assassin's Creed 4, and I struggle to...

Correct - those were the Australian launch prices of those consoles (personally I can only confirm the PS3 was $999 at launch, not sure about the PS1 or PS2).

Also in Australia, next to nobody has...

In Australia PS+ is $70 per 12 months (or $20 per 3 months), so ~18 months of it is worth about $100, or the price of one new game. In America it is $50 per 12 months (or $18 per 3 months), so 18...
