Pumpkins are used for decorating porches, the turkey population will soon become scarce and shiny paper will tightly wrap boxes of super fun time presents and toys underneath an uprooted (or fake) tree in living rooms across the nation (insert other cultural or national holiday references here). As is the case every half-decade or so, that also means it's time for new gaming consoles! What are being lauded as the greatest hunks of plastic to ever grace the game industry, otherwise known as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (referred to from here on out as the PS4 or XB1), are soon to be in the hands of consumers everywhere. I'm excited, you're excited and most of all - the people that profit from their release are excited. Should your excitement really transfer to you paying money for it, the day it comes out, before you or anyone you know has really had a chance to discern if it's worth hundreds of your hard-earned cash?"
