What video game systems do you own? Jan 2008 Edition

I know we've had a bunch of these over the years, but I think the last one was quite a few months ago. With the PS3 and Wii being a year old and people getting new systems for the holidays, I figure it's a good time for an update.

So it's self explanatory... what game systems do you own? In this case, I figure "own" as in those currently hooked up to your TV for gaming. An old N64 in the closet doesn't really count, but if you have it hooked up feel free to mention. And naturally a focus on the current gen systems and portables in the poll. I also included the PC for those that use it to play fairly recent games. Playing Yahoo games doesn't really count as a gaming PC, but if you're playing Orange Box, Bioshock, Crysis on your PC, then it most certainly does.

Me? I have a 360 and a gaming PC. Roomate has a Wii and PS3, so between the 2 of us we have all our bases covered (had a Wii, sold it since my roomate's would be enough). I used to have my slim PS2 hooked up, but recently gave it to my brother since it stopped getting play after I got the 360 a year back. Just built a new PC in November for gaming as well, although I've really only been playing Team Fortress 2 on it with a little World of Warcraft on the side. I also have a DS.

Just a Wii and PS2. I'm thinking of making a play for a PS3 in a few months but for now I'm happy playing Wii on a regular basis.

Everything but the 360 and honestly I have put that purchase off so long it is just not going to happen. I wouldn't have time for it anyway.

360 and PC here... although my PC is aging. I can play FEAR on high settings, but anything released in the last year or so rapes my PC and calls it a bitch. I plan on upgrading once DX10 video cards fall to within my price range of $100-$150 and Vista gaming becomes more stable. Until then I will stick with my 'old' XP system.

All of this gen and last gen minus a PS3. I've got a computer of course but, I don't know if I'd go so far to call it a Gaming PC. Maybe 3 years ago.

I think this poll is really unfair. We should have another option:

"Wii, but I put it down 2 weeks after I got it".

Seriously. Because you know that everyone does that with their Wii.

I have all the new consoles. The Wii is basically for my oldest daughter. Also the DS and the GBA, although she doesn't play them too much.
I play the PSP just when I'm on the road. I just bought the PS3 last month, so I'll see how much I play it compared to the Xbox and PC.

PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, PSP. I guess technically I still have a Dreamcast and N64 somewhere in my closet. And my brother still has a PS2. But then if you have a PS3, 360, and Wii, don't you technically also have a PS2, PS1 (if you have the 60gb), XBox, and Gamecube? And if you have a DS you have a gameboy.

NES, SNES, GC, GBA, PS1, PS2, SS, DC, Neo Geo MVS, Neo Geo CD, Xbox.... I think thats it. I really cut back. I used to have a Supergrafx, TG16+CD+ACP, Neo Geo home cart, Sega+CD, N64, NG Pocket, and a bunch of other crap in addition to the stuff above. lol! To date, my all time fave is the Saturn. Nothing beats the Saturn in 2d fighters and shooters. Nothing. Ever.

360 and a DS. DS use has suffered greatly since I got my 360 in September and I am seriously considering getting rid of it. If I traveled more it would be perfect but it really just gets a little play now maybe once or twice a month.

Hooked up the hdtv

Original XBOX

Hooked up to my old SDTV


I also have a gaming PC, which has been upgraded to its max potential being nearly a 3 year old Socket 939 system. A64 4800 X2, 8800gts 320mb, 2gb ram, and I dual boot XP and Vista. I can run most games on high settings, (Bioshock, COD4, etc.), but Crysis gives my system some trouble.

I have a DS lite and have been thinking about a PSP, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

I plan on buying a PS3 when the Dual Shock 3 comes out and it's included with the system.

I used to work at a Video Game Exchange (north east small chain) store in the mid-to-late 90's, then moved on to EB for 3 years, on into college.

In order of most play...

Dreamcast (with Neo4All, DreamSNES, Bleem, and many other boot discs/collections)
Saturn (modded with a switch to go between Japan/US)
GBA SP (NES retro edition!)
NeoGeo Pocket Color
SNES (small redesign)
NES (toploader redesign, with 2 dogbones - jealous?)
Genesis (2nd version)
Atari 2600
T-16 w/CD (which I loaned out roughly 8 years ago and haven't gotten back yet...)

I just sold my Wii before Xmas. Fuck it...I was too busy with all the great 360 games from fall and early winter, so I sold it, pocketed massive profit, and will buy a new one with the cash put aside when I can find one (and I get a new job). I'd include my PC, but it's almost 4 at this point, and I don't game on it, save for some Worms here and there, or psychonauts, but that's once in a blue moon.

I keep staring at all my Versus, old Nintendo Power, and GameFan guides (FFIII, ChronoTrigger, FFVII, RE2, Soul Blade, etc) and thinking that I should sell a few. Specifically the fucking Versus FFVII guide, but screw it, I'm keeping them. One gem that I have that I've only seen on eBay 2 times in 10 years is this small, CD-case sized Promo Artbook for Dracula X (Castlevania) that is just badass. Last one I saw went for almost as much to buy a Wii, and that was several years ago.

Hell, I just ran across a poster Tube with about 15 mint Parasite Eve promo posters, 2 brave fencer Musashi posters, and some NHL Faceoff '98 (Tony Amonte) posters. I've got a Tekken 3 Jin Standee, and some other stuff. Perhaps even a Rival Schools standee somewhere. Those were the days...

Systems I own and average playtime per week:

- 360 - between 10-20 hours/week, depending on work/free time/etc
- Wii - probably about 1-2 hours/week, mostly VC games.
- XBox - like 1 hour a month, usually MVP Baseball 2005
- DS - varies wildly based on what game I have in there. About to start Zelda and FF3, so that should increase usage again.

Yay, I like these. I'll also be responding like lordwow.

Xbox 360: Last played: Saturday, Rock Band. Played 3-6x a week.
"Gaming" PC: Last played: yesterday, Desktop Tower Defense. I'll be honest, I play mostly flash games or independent games like Armadillo Run. No AAA titles.
PS3: Last played: weeks ago. Last used: almost daily (as BD/DVD/DivX player).
Wii: Last played: a year ago. Last used: months ago, as internet browser.
Xbox: Last played: months ago, Rallisport Challenge 2.
Nintendo DS: Last played: months ago. Recently got Zelda, will be replaying shortly.
Nintendo 64: Last played, months ago, Pokemon Stadium 2.
PS2: Last played, a year ago. Game unknown, maybe Katamari.

Other systems, not hooked up:
NES (x2), still have my light gun and power pad
SNES, last played in past few years
Sega Dreamcast (x2). last played in past few years
Sega Saturn
PS1 (not mine, left here by a friend)

I always wanted one of the odd consoles or handhelds, like the Wonder Swan, Neo-Geo, of FM Towns Marty.
