Is it essential to life?

We have an old PS1 which hardly ever gets used. Ok, so we haven't got many games for it, and all the new games are made for PS 2, and the arguments for updating have been endless. But it is not for me to say what he spends his money on, though spending it on a toy that will spend most of it's life collecting dust, till PS3 comes out and it gets replaced, seems a little pointless to me.

He found an answer. How to prove that a new Playstation is needed? Use the old one more. Buy more games. It seems simple, and a game of Pong arrived. A classic, which I remember playing on TV as a kid (Yes, I am that old).

Nostalgia took over and now we are the proud owners of an Atary, and a box of games, including PacMania and OutRun.

If updating is too expense, downdate. A change is as good as a holiday.

Ohh the ping pong game, I remember playing that too. I was fascinated by it, loved it..

Gawd, look at how the world has changed since then. Can you imagine a kid playing that now, how boring lol
