Quoted from J85M:
I love a lot of Stern games but I won't be buying any of their new releases when I can buy older titles that are more loaded, don't have QC issues and cost 1000s less.
You won't be buying.
I won't be buying.
But Stern has found that there's plenty of enthusiasts with wallets big enough to buy at high prices.
Be happy with your decision.
Congratulate Stern for being a successful business.
Don't envy the rich boys, who can buy expensive toys, who will continue to tapped by Stern to make more profit (which is the primary reason they exist).
