I also have all three systems + a GBA. I have the most games and find myself playing PS2 the most, with x-box a distant second and GC dead last. GBA is used most in the laundromat or NYC sub-way. What about you guys?

GameCube the most by far.

PS2 will be second when Vice City comes out, but the Xbox is catching up. I played Tony Hawk 4 on it for about 3 hours today.

My GBA is used on occasion. I still haven't finished the new Castlevania.

Welcome to the club. Now you can play only the BEST games available ANYWHERE. If you have all 3 systems, I always tell people to never waste time on any game that isn't a top tier, 4 star, triple A title. There are enough of those across systems to keep anyone busy unless you are seriously hardcore.

I have all three also and find myself using the both the XBOX and the PS2 evenly. I hardly used the Gamecube until Animal Crossing. I am considering trading it in for games for the other two systems.

I play XBOX 80% of the time, GCN 20%, and my PS2 is now a DVD player in my bedroom which I'll get out to play GTA:VC for two months or so, then put it back. I think I need to sell that thing and buy another when they're $89 in a couple of years, or get a PS3.

Any confirmation on if the PS3 will be backword-compatable?

All this talk of the trifecta is pushing me to get a gC to complet mines, it's like I have enough time already, and it's like I don' spend a lot of time staring at a box in a box. Sometimes I just need to unplug.

But yeah, I'm probably picking up the platinum gamecube and super metroid.

Yeah, I have a PS2, GC and GBA and hardly have time for games either, with Grad school and a part time job. I almost cracked and bought an X-box, but I just can't justify it as I've only been playing games a couple hours a week lately. I can't even keep up with the games on the systems I have, much less throw another one in to the mix.

As for which systems I play the most, it just varies by game releases.

Currently I'm playing mostly PS2 (just got Devil May Cry) and GBA (Castlevania: HOD). I haven't touched my GC since beating Mario a month or so ago, though I still intend to try and get all the shines in that game eventually.

When Metroid Prime comes out, the GC will be my most played system for at least a month or so.

Become a teenager again or get a job in the gaming world (so you have an excuse for reviews/research/etc.)

It also helps if you are single.
