    Cool story, bro.


    Actual post: Where I used to live (Peru), bootleg PS1 games are about $0.75, and PS2 games are about $1 to $1.50. The reason pirating is a big problem in third-world countries is because there aren't many people to buy actual original copies. And the few actual games that they sold are about $55-$60

    LOL

    im from the Phil's also, but now i am in Canada.

    I, too, also had a PS1. before that, we had this, plug and play device in a shape of a n64 controller that had NES games built in. GunBoy as i remember it. (do a search)
    anyways, yeah, it was about $1 for a CD, back then i didnt know it was pirated. i just thought that was the way its meant to be. I had lots of games, enough to fill a whole cabinet
    and then, it was my birthday, they asked me: waht should we buy you?
    PS2
    Xbox
    Gamecube
    portable dvd player

    which one wold you have picked?
    i picked the GC. why? idk
    But it was a good choice, I was a Mario fan (because of the GunBoy) and playing SMSunshine, SSMM, and some games. since there was no pirated games on the GC before(you know why) i only had 11 games. And I became a Nintendo Fanboy.
    got the DS, then Wii, Then the 360. The 360 was good. better next gen than the wii, and pirated games. but i cant say i am a M$ fanboy. probably cause i got banned from live.

    wtf.lol tl:dr
    GC was my favorite console.

    Nice read.
    I probably would have bought a 360 if I had the same choice as him.
    50 dollars for games is just too much IMHO, I can't see me buying around 50 titles at that price.
