We play airsoft because we can't afford paintball?

Just got a kick out of this video.

Most of you probably aren't aware, but in paintball big changes are starting to take place.The industry is trying to move to a smaller standard ball size. The reasoning being that due to the failing economy and great expense of paintball, buisness related to the sport have been suffering and failing. The answer lies in making the balls smaller, adding more value per shot through less waste and yada yada yada. But there are also some intersting comments regarding airsoft, along the lines of how we all secretly long to be paintballers but just can't afford it. Probably more true for the american airsoft kiddie market than here but funny none the less.
