Confessions of a Retail Beta Tester

Ben Burns of VGI writes ...

"Sometimes being an early adopter sucks. I openly mock those around me who purchase Apple hardware, sure in the certain knowledge that the "cutting edge" high ticket item they have just bought will be superseded within less than 12 months. Apple's drip feed of opiates to their stupefied, loyal, credit card waving acolytes occurs to me as a stunning abuse of consumers." (3DS, Retro, Tag Invalid, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)
