Muh Inflashun

It actually angers me that people this fucking stupid exist.
>ItZ ChEaPeR BeCuZ InFlAtIuN
ECONOMY IS NOT PURELY A MATHEMATICAL FORMULA YOU FUCKING MORONS.
Just because something is cheaper if "accounted for inflation" Doesn't mean it's actually fucking cheaper.
The whole point of inflation is that it's inflationary.
Most people are making the same amount of money now as they did when PSVR1 came out.
How the fuck do you account for pure cost but don't account for sedentary income and inflated cost of living?
It's literally more expensive because your dollar buys you less. Less bills paid, less food, less heating, less gas.
So the fact it's cheaper if we take into account imaginary 'le inflashun' numbers which calculate ONLY the value of dollar then vs value of dollar now doesn't mean it's cheaper.
This shit is why I hate mankind? This gay is talking about inflation to justify cost, but basically what he's doing is spitting in the face of every single person that didn't win the lotter between the release of VR1 and VR2.
And then this gaggle of fuckwits sits in a pseud circlejerk laughing at the outside world too much of a castrated BITCH to actually have their views confronted.

      It's not just snoys, it's gamers in general that don't understand how inflation is calculated.
      This shit is, and always has been, based on a shopping basket of predetermined goods. Inflation is literally "Food Analogy: The math formula". It doesn't have a 1:1 application to consumer electronics and other goods whose cost of resources and production doesn't calculate the same way as cost of perishables like milk and eggs. Using inflation as an argument in anything related to game software or computer hardware is absolutely retarded and pointless without taking into account the entire economy. Like the fact that right now we're going through a stagflation. So calculating inflation alone is literally pointless even in the fields in which the calculation is applicable.

        You're using a lot of words when you can just ask them this, "Why are wages never the first thing to go up with inflation?" Inflation is the theft of the average person's savings and buying power, and it can happen at anytime if garden gnomes (the ones who control the money printers) decide so.

                You're upset that people mistakenly believe the cost of goods (including electronic ones) are fair, even though inflation (and other factors) have clearly raised their cost. It really sounds like you think inflation is bad. And then I suggested to you how you could dispel their notion in so little words. Because part of what makes these people believe inflation is "fair" is because their buying power increases proportionately or at the same rate as the cost of goods. You simply have to ask them, "When inflation occurs, why is it never wages that are the first to rise with it?" And indeed, if one looks it up, wages have never increased proportionately with inflation, if it does at all. Don't worry, you'll grow up one day.

          Because inflation calculation not being accurately applicable to cost of software and hardware is not related to wages of people in tech industry, they're two separate discussions you fucking retard. Just because Sojiro Patel Shekelsteen the Third makes more money doesn't change the fact that economical development of tech cost is not parallel to the agricultural cost which is used for calculating ifnlation you collosal fuckwit.

          So game prices should stay static forever?

        Not just this, it also doesn't have a 1:1 application to even the economy. When inflation is reduced, the prices don't reduce with them. It's quite literally just a way for companies to jack up prices while claiming they're doing it for our own good.

        Yes. Not to mention, if it costs you more money to buy food and heat your home and pay for gas for your car, that leaves you with less money to buy things like an expensive, unnecessary VR headset. The cost of the VR machine from six years ago really does not matter at all here. If you look around and see garden gnomes manipulating the economy into total collapse and pushing us into war, you may be less apt to spend money on frivolities.

    >It's literally more expensive because your dollar buys you less.
    True but in theory you also are earning more dollars. Inflation isn’t uniform in the short term (costs tend to rise before earnings do) but in the long term it generally is.

    My point is it’s equally misleading to say “if everything costs more, your dollar buys less, so it’s actually more expensive” because ACTUAL expense is a percentage of discretionary income. Having to choose between a $100 purchase and 2 $50 purchases while earning $10/hr is identical to having to choose between a $1000 purchase and 2 $500 purchases while earning $100 an hour.

        No, average REAL income hasn’t gone up in (nowadays, 4) decades. Absolute income has gone up. That’s confounded somewhat by the effects of covid lockdowns and yadda yadda but yes, the same jobs are paying more than they did 4 years ago. It’s not a 10% increase (it’s not keeping pace with inflation) but it will stabilize in the long term.

        The real point here is not that the “it’s adjusted for inflation ACKSHUALLY” is faulty logic. Instead the focus should be “a rational consumer should be seeking the greatest value for money possible, so any consumer who justifies a price increase on behalf of the seller instead of objecting to it is a spineless cuck. A rational consumer would be one who saw PSVR on sale for $20 and asked when the price was dropping to $15”

      In theory, if I print a lot of money, inflation hasn't actually occurred yet. If I then proceed to spend that "extra" money fo mo dem programs, why would the value of that "extra" money be less at the time of that initial first purchase? Has inflation actually occurred yet? No, it hasn't. That "extra" money retains its' nominal value. But *value* cannot be magically spun out of the ether - as that "extra" money circulates, inflation finally occurs, and the value of money decreases overall. But that initial first purchase still retained as much value as possible at that point in time. Inflation is theft of the average person's savings and buying power by the garden gnomes who control the money printers.
