From the article, "There’s nothing like that new console moment. The second you decide yes, you can afford this system and it is definitely the right time to pick one out. Maybe you’ve saved up credit at a store that buys used games and they finally have a used model of the console you want in stock. Perhaps you received your tax refund. Or it could just be that careful saving over months has finally left you with the lump sum you need to make the major purchase. It’s like being able to buy a new car every two years.
I’m in the midst of that magic moment myself, having just acquired a Wii U."
