Shelly Palmer Radio Report – December 5, 2013

Thinking of picking up a brand new video game console this holiday season? You might want to hold off on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While the latest and greatest consoles from Microsoft and Sony will soon be the new kings of the video game world, high prices and a lack of games make them less appealing than their predecessors – the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 – as well as the Wii U. The 360, PS3 and Wii U have all seen price cuts recently, and were all featured in a slew of bundles during Black Friday week. These low prices and bundles will continue through the holiday season, letting you pick up a brand new console and a bevy of games for less than the price of one brand new Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Which would you rather have? A PlayStation 3 and ten of its best games … or a PlayStation 4 and nothing? Personally, I’d prefer a PlayStation 4. Shop smart this holiday season and for younger gamers, consider a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360 or even a Wii U.
