I dont understand why they keep making all of these crazy devices that only business people can afford. You'd think they'd want to target the kids with allowances or teenagers with shitty low-paying jobs. No kid or teen can afford that shit.

All though this is very expensive, you have to realize that it does a lot more than just play games. You have a high-end PDA, integrated with MP3 player, photo viewer and videos. Being able to play with other people with wireless ability is also added in. Its like the ultimate toy for the ultimate rich kid.
