So this is a real thing: http://pc.ign.com/articles/122/1222729p1.html.
That much money for what? A jacket? While I do admit that it does look pretty cool and it could let you get away with cosplay fantasies in public without looking like a weirdo, that's just going overboard. Pricing-wise, that is. If it was a few hundred dollars less I could have looked like Leon Kennedy!
As for the title of this comic... well, I just have this feeling that Penny Arcade already made this joke but my Google finds haven't proven it yet. Let me know if they did. Then I'll... probably be proud of it.
