Do you resent being an early adopter?
gamesindustry.biz has run an interview that suggests this is an issue.
So, does anyone resent buying early?
As a U.S. customer, I definitely don’t. I might have resented if they were adding new features I wanted, but that definitely isn’t happening: both the 80GB and upcoming 40GB models are dropping features rather than adding them. Sure, if I waited, I would have gotten the $100 price cut and the five free Blu-Ray movie offer, but I have easily gotten at least that much entertainment value out of my PS3 in the nine months that I’ve owned it.
On the other hand, I’ve been holding off on an HDTV purchase for exactly this reason. If I bought an HDTV a year or two ago, and watched the prices drop $1000+ while the functionality has improved, I definitely would have regretted it.
I suspect few U.S. PS3 early adopters are resentful. Is this more of an issue in Europe? Anyone care to comment?
