There is nothing quite so incessant as the plea of a young child to his or her parent, desperate for the latest video game system, and especially now, with the three most powerful video game systems ever competing head-to-head on the market. But these systems are not necessarily inexpensive -- $199 to $299 -- at a time when the economy may or may not be coming out of a recession and unemployment is at five-year highs. What is a financially strapped parent to do?
The answer lies with what the game industry calls "legacy" systems, those that are not today's latest technology but still work perfectly well. They might not be that easy to find, but they are well supported, can arguably provide just as much fun as the new systems and are, in a word, cheap.
