Platform Nation’s “A Simple Question” – 8/4/10

No fancy lead-in here. Let’s get right to this week’s ASQ:

If you had $500 to spend on anything gaming related, what would it be and why?

There’s a lot of good stuff out now (and a lot coming soon), and you’ve got the cash, so what’s it going to be?  A bunch of games? A new system bundle and some controllers? An iPad? Don’t forget to tell us why: we want to know the mind behind the person who wants to collect every Atari 2600 game.

For good measure, throw in the retail amounts (if possible) of what you’re listing. Don’t be frugal, spend it all!’s response: “I think I would buy a bunch of Wii accessories” – Well OK — it’s better than the first response I got “Go to a dinner and a movie” .. that’s one expensive movie! Please do better than this!

A Simple Question (ASQ) is a weekly segment for Platform Nation.  Each week, you’ll be posed a question.   Give a response and let the world know what you think, there is no right or wrong answer here.  I will post my response on Friday. If you have a suggestion for a question, hit me up on twitter @vttym.

  • Right now if I had it I would spend it on some 3D graphic setup on my mac. Maybe some 3D headset

    I would use it to pay for my preorders at Amazon. I have Halo Reach ($60), Kinect ($150), and Kinectimals ($50). With the remaining $240 I would snag Two Worlds II, Madden 11 (for my wife), and ArcaniA Gothic 4. I would put in a preorder for Gears Of War 3, but I’m waiting to see if they put out a special edition. 🙂

  • I’d probably pick up a PS3, and an updated graphics card for my computer to get my computer up to spec, and thus add 2 valid gaming systems to my reviewing arsenal.

  • Tym I would have to agree a new PS3 would be in order my old one well is getting old and I would have to drop the other 200 on a good gaming headset

    I might change some of the stuff in my earlier reply and get an iPad so I could snag more reviews! 😀
