One of my biggest dilemma’s over the past year or so is, whether or not I should buy an Xbox 360. xJaymanx suggested I make a post about it, so I did, hehe. When I get one, it’ll almost definately be an Elite… So about £230 for the console itself, not in a bundle, in a bundle deal it would probably be like… £245, £260… I’m not worried about the games that would come in the bundle, since they’d be crap ones, probably sport games that the shop couldn’t shift on their own. I’m going by Gamestation, Amazon, GAME prices, since they’d be the places I’d most likely get one. So… onto the question… how many figures that I really want, not impulse buys, can a 360 Elite buy?
I’m going to use the £230 price, for just the console, one controller and basics. And all the figure prices are coming from sites I can actually buy the figures from, not translated from yen.
Figure No.1 – Nagi – Price: £53
Figure No.2 – Mikuru – Price: £36 – Total so far: £89
Figure No.3 – Shirley – Price: £62.50 – Total so far: £141.50
Figure No.4 – Yuki – Price: £29.50 – Total so far: £170
Figure No.5 – Manaka – Price: £30 – Total so far: £200, only £30 left….. oh….
Figure No.6 – Elwing – Price: £28 – Grand total: £228, Just under.
Most of the other figures I really-really want are over £50 in price… But that would go over the £230 limit.
So, in the end, I could get 6 of the figures I really want for £230 with £2 to spare. And in the long run, the 360 won’t be put out of production, as opposed to the figures, which will become unavailable sometime in the forseeable future. So I think I’d get these figures over the 360. If the figures were all impulse buys then I might choose the 360 over the new girlies.
