I think that if there are so many poor people here in the USA-- I mean the world, why should entertainment for 1,000$+ Devices cost even more money?
Mr_Sworgon7098

Pro

The reason that the games cost money for the $1000+ systems is because of the fact that the copanies that sell the games have to pay the people that help to create them. So by making them cost money they can offord to keep their employees and make more games.

But there are so many people across the world that are so poor, that people have to take decades in some places to get a computer. And when they want to use it for entertainment, they have to pay 50$ for that kind of stuff, which I think is wrong.

Like I said before, the people who create the games have to pay their employees and in order to do that they must sell the games at a high price. The people who create the computers themselves have to pay to create the parts and pay even more people to put the computers together. It is not wrong just two different companies trying to make money.

Well maybe they would bring down the price of some computers. Like the price of this new Alien ware computer is ridiculous, and many people can barely afford a cheap computer in the economy. Maybe if they brought the price down, they would get more money, but they bring the price up. This is why they should be free, before the price of some 3DS game becomes $100.

Hell, if someone is so poor they can't afford a 60$ game, maybe they should be worrying about more important things like food...and getting a job... the world doesn't care how much your entertainment costs, your entertainment that you have the privilege to use, is governed buy how successful you are in life. If you aren't successful in life than you should probably worry about getting yourself out of you mother basement, instead of whether or not you can afford the next World of NoLifeCraft expansion.

The $1000+ System was just an example. Calm down people.
