Some of you are too worked up over Walmart still having bundles. Walmart.com is one of the most behind the times retail store's website in the USA. They don't have the same prices as their stores. They still haven't got their store pickup system working right. My account does not work with any credit card with I ship something(PayPal ,lalways works, and any CC will always work with site to store) and they ignore my support requests. They shipped me a single 25x25x1 air filter in a 65x40x6 box. How the crap is that efficient?
who knows but wal mart brings in the money. again wal mart is probably going to be that place to get a wii u by waiting in line for ages just because they are so behind the times and dont do in store preorders normally.
Paycheck to paycheck high school and/or college folks might have to plan ahead to make that money available, rather than just dropping it all right now.
while i am truly guilty of what i am about to say and not taking my own advice it would in general be a far wiser thing to hold off on such things if one has to save and barely get 500 dollars or even 300 dollars. a broke high school student or college student would be far better off buying a wii or ps3 or xbox 360 bundle quite frankly.
the smart man would say screw it and save up and invest for the future as opposed to getting the newest shiny toy.
the real problem is the world in general and especially america is a nation of debt these days. we quite frankly have very little self control when it comes to spending. so it is not entirely shocking to see a broke college or high school student trying to figure out and rationalize how to get the newest shiny toy.
and there is of course the xmas mentality which is basically lets blow a whole wad of cash on a bunch of crap we all dont really need and realize come the new year we are broke and in debt and if we were already in debt we are even more in debt.
and well anybody who frequents this site is probably a gaming/dvd shopaholic with some hoarding tendencies.
