the money he spends on latex purple parachutes to fit into could go to other people who need it to address the 'class divide'

Jim makes a video about him getting a PS5 and surprise surprise it's thinly veiled bitching about class divide and capitalism..
>spends hundreds of dollars to support Japanese Capitalism
>complains about capitalism
I don't even seriously hope people don't do this because it's a waste of energy.
Why does he spend so much energy complaining about Capitalism when he's probably the most bourgey commie to exist?

No no you don't understand! It's not that they can't afford their luxury product, it's that they aren't able to buy their luxury product the instant it comes out, so obviously the entire capitalist system has failed them all!

Also it's just a really bad idea in general to use a luxury product as an allegory for necessities/living wage, which a lot of these people seem to do. No Jim, I don't think the reason 6.999 billion other people on the planet don't have a PS5 is because they can't afford it. It's because they just don't want to buy a fucking PS5, and nobody is entitled to a luxury product either.

I'm reminds how people complained about how Nintendo was using "artificially scarcity" for the Switch (or indeed any other successful console they've made). Like come on, if you look at the numbers they're making it's clearly not, when you bump up production to over 10 million units a year you're clearly not trying to make it scarce.
With Nintendo it's easy to believe. I could understand them being caught off guard with the Wii, but there's too many cases to ignore. The NES mini, the SNES mini, and Amiibos.

I do believe that in the cases of more limited items like the amiibos and the minis that they did use artificial scarcity to some degree, that is a part of the reason I said-
...Switch's while they weren't available 24/7 also weren't NES Classic or amiibo levels of scarcity.
My point is more about the core of their business, their consoles, specifically the NES, Wii, and Switch. Given the high numbers of those systems made I believe they were just at the limits of their supply chain and had nothing to do with artificial scarcity.
