You can find the articles damn near everywhere, this isn’t so much about the fact that they are raising prices as it is my attitude towards it. That attitude is indifference. I’d love if they never raised prices, who the hell wouldn’t? However, the reality is that prices will increase on everything you ever buy. I’m more pissed off when prices rise on commodities, you know the stuff you need to survive, than I am when GW hikes up prices on my hobby. What’s the going rate on gas now?
Yeah, it sucks but I’ll survive and you won’t hear me bitch about it. So, a Predator will cost me $4 than it would have a month ago, I can cope. It’s not as though I’m buying 100 Predators and now paying $400 more than before.
Maybe I’m just more pragmatic than others. I’m in a hobby that costs money and as with anything I expect to deal with price increases. I also have a job, so a means to fund the hobby. An extra few bucks isn’t going to break my bank account. If it would then I’d need to find a new hobby like checkers or frisbee.
