Which Consoles do you own?

As a matter of interest which games consoles do you own and play on? Are you a dedicated single console player or a multi console gamer? Why?

I own all three. I play my XBOX and Gamecube the most right now. Just finished Metroid Prime and Splinter Cell. I'm also playing a lot of NHL 2k3 on my XBOX.

I have an X-Box, and I'm hoping to have a PS2 or a GC soon - after I buy my new house

I also have a PC - though it's not a console, a large majority of my gaming happens on it.

I have all 3. Probably play my Xbox the most. I have all my sports games for it and those are usually the ones I play the most and I'm getting live for Xmas so that will get alot of time. Right now I only use my PS2 for GTA: Vice City. My gamecube has a few inches of dust on it. I haven't played it in a month or so, it will pick up soon though since my gamecube games are the only ones I haven't finished yet.

I own the PS2, Atari 2600, and an early model Gameboy. I'm playing the PS2 only (addicted to Evercrack beta) as I don't have the time to play the other consoles (Xbox/Gamecube), which is a shame.

I am trying to win an Xbox through a local radio station promotion though

I have a PC, all my gaming happens on it. Most invations go to the PC first, so it's worth checking out.

I'm not saying everyone will want to just be soley a PC Gamer (like I am) but it's a good place to watch for good games. Lots of riskier games are made for the PC. For consoles you have to pay a licensing fee of a few million dollars... and certain companys just aren't whilling. Also, they're not nearly as mainstream, so can get away with far more.

I'm a single console guy, mostly because the gamecube keeps me plenty busy already, I have no need to get another console.

Nintendo (2 of em)
Saturn
Dreamcast (2 of em)
SNES (my most played)
PS2
X-Box
N64 (2 of em)


PS: In the poll options, pick 'allow multiple choice' and then you can have a list of 10 consoles instead of a list of choices people may not be able to pick from

Gamecube
PS2
Gameboy Advance
Super Nintendo

PS2 has been getting most of the play time lately, but that will change after taking my last final thursday. I'd put Metroid Prime on the backburner because everytime I'd play it I'd end up playing for hours instead of studying or working on papers. But after Thursday I'm done with grad school until the end of January, so I'll finish of Metroid Prime.

PS2
GameCube
DreamCast
PSX
Saturn
Genesis
Super Nintendo
Turbo Grafx 16
NES

I have them all hooked up in here, it's just a PITA having to swap adapters and crap for the Genesis/SNES/NES since I'm out of room on my power strip, and I haven't found where I placed my other one yet. I also only have the PS2/GC/DC/Saturn on my shelf, the others are scattered about on the floor. Sometime this break I'm going to take the time to build a shelf for them all.
I play all of them right now except the TG-16, because the only game I have for it currently is Keith Courage. My PS2 gets the most playtime(23 PS2 games, over 30 PSX games), followed in a tie by the GC and DC. I still play the older consoles because I grew up with them, and sometimes feel like those games are more fun than current ones.

I did own all of the big three, but my non use of the Xbox convinced me to sell it. I really don't have the time for even one console anymore so I had to cut it down. The XBox was a major dud for me anyway as few of the exclusives interested me in the least. I also sold off all my Saturn games and systems including some really rare stuff. Hated to do it, but I would rather have the money for new games and DVDs.

The GameCube is currenty the console that gets most of my time but I still own and on occasion use:

PS2
GBA
PSone
N64
Dreamcast
3DO
Sega CDX
Super NES
NES
CD-i
Neo Geo Pocket (probably the next thing to get sold off)

After picking up the GC last week I now own all 3. I made the right decision on picking the Cube last.

I bought a PS2 when it first came out. I finished the trifecta this summer buying the Xbox and then the Gamecube.
