Frustrations abound. A couple of months ago, I realized that my PS3 wasn’t keeping up with the changes that are being made in the online games I play. The last few major updates to DCUO (DC Comics Universe Online) have included some very powerful graphics-hogging area effect powers for characters, and every other online player who uses those is contributing to bogging my PS3 down to near non-playable status.
The only fix, of course, is to upgrade to a PS4, about $350 USD. That’s not even anything fancy – just getting set up.
However, we’re nowhere close to having that kind of discretionary spending fund at the moment. This last year we’ve replaced 2 coffee makers, bought an upright freezer (to replace the dis-functional freezer compartment on our refrigerator), replaced a steam kettle, and made 3 runs at the telomere supplements. Looking at what we have planned over the next year or two, it looks like a safe bet that if we wait until we’ve comfortably saved the funds, I’ll have a brand-spanking-new PS4 about a month before they release the PS5.
Nah, I’m not really begging anyone to send me a PS4 game system. I just thought that someone else might be interested in knowing they aren’t alone in making choices about priorities in their lives. If that’s you, this post is for you. I understand.
