Why if it makes the game better and more realistic?
Because it is obscene the amount of actual material 'value' is in a computer...next to nothing...
Because it costs MONEY.
Gaming has become less 'gaming' and more of a hobby... people don't play, they win. People don't have a machine on which they run games, they have Game Machines.
I guess it's just me, then.
You've got a few good points. But I've got to disagree with what you're paying for. You're not paying for the actual, physical computer (or its components), you're buying the work that these people put into making this thing. Just like when you buy a CD at a store, you pay $15 not because a physical CD and its materials costs $15 (I think the actual cost of that is less than 5 cents or something), but for the music and the work the musicians put into the album.
edit: ohcrap I just realized I bumped a thread from march... it was by accident.. don't kill me!
