Should I buy a PS3?

So, should I? I have a stack or two cash now, and I was meaning to use it on a vehicle, then moving out of my moms house... But, no luck in the vehicle department and I am thinking I should just keep saving and waiting... And I am pretty bored the cash
is starting to burn a hole in my pocket since the only thing I have bought with my money is booze, food, or things to smoke.


In 5 months, I saved 3500 dollars. I have one monthly bill of 80 dollars, and live with my mom in a boring ass area. I make around 1100-1200 dollars a month, work 50-60 hour weeks constistently
now, but do not wanna move out until I have a vehicle. When I used to live by myself in Wisconsin, I made around 600 to 700 a month and made it work, had a lot of fun, but was pretty miserable.

Hopefully in by the end of June, one of my jobs pay will raise 2 dollars, and I will still keep my other one, and probably end up working 70 hours or so a week. I want to continueing building my stack up, but I would really like to invest in something right now that I could spend time that didn't involve the bar.

Other things I have been thinking about-

A skateboard. It is warm out again. Though, I was never that good.

A new electric guitar and amp. I got shitfaced, had a meltdown, and smashed my acoustic, plus I am horrible at practicing and pushing myself, but maybe, with the new guitar, I could add a new monthly bill of lessons, and spend time with a focused individual face to face who wants to see me succeed there.

A screen printing set up to make some shirts. I like making spray paint shirts
well
did, since I haven't in so long, or really drawn in that long of a time. So, again, I just don't know if I will stay interested enough to fill that void of hobbyness.

A motorcycle. I want to learn to ride, and own one, but right now prices are fucked since its the season.

Also, my close friend has one, but we would probably rarely play together since of our schedules.

But, then, I have been known to let video games distract me from life.

Well, shit. Any comments?


...plus, I really want to play BF3 and get fucking baked and play skyrim.


Also, I could just go out and buy a sub to live and buy whatever game I wanted and play it on the 360 that is in the house... but it's like... meh.

Yes, the xbox 360 is dead, the new one will be out at the end of the year next year...

The ps3 has at least another 24 months of development coming...

I've found in my experience, PS3 has a much classier online community,..


But out of all those things listed I would personally buy the screen press or guitar...

I would always take something that enriches and fosters creativity over vidja games...

I can't help you decide until you choose whether you are saving up for a car/moving out or not. If you are, then no. If you're not, then why not?

The idea is I don't wanna move out again untill I have a car, a stash of cash, and an income that always me to continue to let me save, as last time I moved out I was living paycheck to paycheck and it felt hopeless as fuck. After car shopping and dealing with all that bullshit, I think I am gonna wait till I have like 7500 or something(since I dont wanna spend that whole wad, for such things as property tax, tags, insurance, if the vehicle turns out to be a fucking lemon, which is what happened wth the last car i bought for under 2k) to actually buy a car, unless something better comes along, or a career change allows me to move to a more urban environment with publicc transportion.

So the idea is that if maybe i splurge a few hundos, I may be able to entertain mmyself, stay out of the bars and save that random 60 bucks I may just randomly end up drinking when I go out to just play a few games of pool.

When I moved back in with my mom, it wasn't supposed to be for so long, but shit just doesn't really come together.

So, just trying to keep entertained in these boring towns for another 5 months.

How many of you guys got magic on PSN?

I've decided I agree with Grieves, both ps4 and 720 said to come out this late this year, by the fans so that means holiday next year pretty much.

Save.

If it's burning a hole, make it harder to reach. Throw it in a savings account so your money is making money. You'll start feeling pretty boss if you can get your accounts rolling in 5 digits. If you can get by without a car don't even think about it until you have to.

If you need to get anything, upgrade your PC then pirate and/or buy some games.

Do you really need a car?

Is there public transit? Bicycle/public transit?

How about zipcar or some other car sharing program?

Can you move to somewhere where you can?

Move in with friends/roomates?
