It sure is something that the iPhone X is the cost of all three current generation consoles with some money to spare for games

· Web · 5 · 6

@plsburydoughboy i saw a video talking about part of the reason for this is that they're upgrading to OLED screens, which Samsung basically has a monopoly on producing, which means they can pretty much set the price wherever they want. so it's something like $250 per iPhone X is just the cost of the screen

@plsburydoughboy o i misremembered it's only like $130 per phone

(the video is youtube.com/watch?v=o5xxIciBSM btw)

so yea still a pretty ridiculous price that could be much better spent on gaming or like anything else

@plsburydoughboy Thinking about the epic gaming PC you could build with all that money. Pour half that build into the GPU.
