23 living in the uk here. before i started my masters course i had a job at a call centre where i got £1500 a month.
the idea of getting 1000 a week is .... unheard of in my head. i have yet to experience any wealth of money so owning either of these consoles is pretty much out of the question
though to be honest if i could afford it, right now id go out and buy a wii u, 3ds, pre order a ps4 and an xbox one right now. if you can afford it and its your hobby why on earth not?
