    A Poll of Utmost Importance!

    Post by skarekrow13 on Thu Nov 14, 2013 12:09 pm

    Alright everyone!  This is URGENT!!!!

    I'm going to be picking up my PS4 tonight at the Wal-Mart Midnight Release Event.  In my area this means that I, and three...maybe four....other people will be awake and at Wal-Mart*

    So here's my problem:
    I have the thing almost completely paid off.  With Wally's layaway plans, you can't fully pay off an item until you're picking it up, so with the PS4 that's the street date.  Long story longer...

    I owe exactly $0.01 on my PS4.  

    Which means I need to come up with one penny by tonight so I can get my new shiny shiny.  Now even I can come up with one penny so the real question is: WHICH PENNY? Vote above

    1. The 2013 penny in honor of the PS4 release date

    2. The 1994 penny in honor of the first use of the brand "PlayStation"

    3. 1981, the year I was born 

    4. 1963 which is the oldest penny I have at the moment

    5. Last but not least, should I try to get away with giving them a Canadian penny.  While not by much, thanks to exchange rates, I would then be able to technically say I purchased the PS4 for less than the retail price AT LAUNCH forever placing me in the Pantheon of Cheapskates (the Canadian penny is worth a little over 95% of a US one at the moment).

    Playstation history is a thing of itself.
    I don't think you need to give something that resembles the year you were born, or give up the oldest penny you have.
    As a joke, the Canadian penny is good, but I think the 'personal value' when it reminds you of the Playstation's history will last longer than the joke itself.

    I voted for Canada for the lulz, but I'd probably go with 1994 in your shoes.

    I was expecting the Canadian penny to run away with it honestly biggrin  


    I was leaning toward the 2013 or 1994 one since it's Sony's big day and not mine.  Although, the birthday one is more symbolic of my investment with the brand and the oldest penny I have is akin to a recognition in my faith in the longevity.  

    There's no bad options I think (or I wouldn't have put them in there) but I definitely want everyone's opinion.

    Go, with the canadian one at first, but then if they accept it, point out it's actually less then a U.S. penny, then give them the 1994 one.

    Both at the same time..

    I'll take my chances. Since that's the only article I've seen claiming failures or early preorder deliveries, and I read Kotaku all the time, I'm comfortable being a guinea pig

    Definitely 1994. I hope the PS4 turns out great! I plan on getting one later (I prefer not to buy consoles on launch, since either a better version is released or I want to wait for a price drop).
    What game are ya getting first?

    I regret to inform the voters that the Pick Skare's Penny Poll has been the victim of voter tampering. It turns out my wife was paying attention last night when I casually mentioned I would need to carefully pick a penny.

    So it is with a heavy heart that I must announce that my daughter handed me a penny when I walked in the door this afternoon. One that she hand picked. Therefore the ballots are now invalid and this whole thing has been a shallow fraud. Those of you who picked the 2013 candidate should feel some consolation as, in her likely quest to pick the most shiny one, she selected a 2013 penny. Since no one voted for that, I guess it's no consolation

    Since it's a playstation thing I'm going for the 1994 penny. I think that is a little more fitting than the others.

    You can save so much money if you give them a Canadian cent.
