Better luxury gift for that special nerd in your life: a $1,000 PS4+Xbox One combo pack (with games), or a $1,000 3D printer?

Why would I ever encourage people to become dirty console plebeians.

Why do you still hold that stereotype in your heart?

a current $1000 printer wouldn't be that good. maybe one for that price in twenty years

Geeks would go for the games, but I feel a nerd would appreciate the printer more.

Can I sub out the Xbox one and ps4 for a super computer I don't mind consoles but they just can't compete with what the power of a good PC can do

I would say gamer if it was a $1k PC, but I hate consoles.

High end ones cost 8000, but there are now ones that are relatively inexpensive.

I would want the printer if it was of better quality $1000 isn't a very good printer.

Coming from a GameStop employee/gamer, go with the consoles. The printing isn't as big of a deal as a new-gen console.

I hope they invent a metal 3d printer soon. Of course instead of plastic guns that break after 1shot ppl would make unregistered machine guns.

They have metal 3d printers already. unfortunatly there so expensive they are only used by organizations like NASA.

If people wanted to make unregistered machine guns, they could just cut them out of metal with a CNC machine and a program off the Internet.

Fact is, the easiest way to get an unregistered machine gun is to buy one off the black market.

I'll wait on the printer until they make more than models. I'll wait on the video game counsels until they are Nintendo.

Most people are either PS or XBOX. But I think the printer could be used for so much more.

Although, maybe I'll wait since all the good launch titles are getting delayed anyway. Makes me wish I never pre-ordered.
