Power Button - Episode 63: PlayStation Vita Pricing Is A Trickster While Netflix Spins Off Qwikster
September 22, 2011
We're all excited to see what Sony's PlayStation Vita can do once it breaks loose into the marketplace, but that $250 sticker price won't get you everything that you need for a fun time. This week on Power Button, Brad Hilderbrand, Joey Davidson, and I examine the Vita's accessories including the charge dock, extra battery, & memory card and discuss how outrageously overpriced they all are. $250 doesn't buy as much as it once did. Then, after the break, we wonder why Netflix chose to break its DVD-by-mail service off into the oddly-named Qwikster division and compare notes on what it would take to get us to switch from game-by-mail rental service GameFly to Qwikster's newly announced competing service option.
