Oldest video game console you still play on a regular basis?

While not exactly old, the Wii U is the oldest video game console I still play on a regular basis. What is the oldest video game console you still play on a regular basis?

Re: Oldest video game console you still play on a regular basis?

Until recently it was my DS Lite. I used it mainly to play GameBoy Advance games as well as some regular DS games. Something is wrong with it though because Iíve changed the battery and it randomly powers itself off on a charge. I use my 3DS occasionally, but I liked the DS Lite for the GBA games.

I also use my PS Vita somewhat regularly even though itís an extinct handheld. I donít have a bunch of games for it, but the ones I have I enjoy.

The GameBoy Color is used somewhat (technically my brotherís but I wound up with it), and I do fire up the Wii once in a while since getting an adapter that allows it to plug in with HDMI instead of composite.

I still use my GameBoy Advance Color to play Samurai Jack, Tron 2.0 Killer App, and Legend of Zelda: The Minnish Cap from time to time.

My incredibly boring answer is the PS4 Pro. Iíve still held onto nearly all of the consoles and handhelds Iíve owned as an adult (aside from ones that died or were traded in for a newer model), but Iím really only actively playing the Switch, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X.

I have a PS3, 360, and a Wii U but I don't play any on a regular basis. The only reason I still own a 360 is for Beatles Rock Band. I'll hang on to the PS3 until they bring over the Ratchet games to the PS5.

As do I, probably more actually.

Is it bad that I don't want to play games any older than last generation mainly because there are no trophies/achievements? I'm currently replaying FF7 on PS4 and getting the trophies. I spent $ to buy it on PSN for the trophies, even though I still have the disc that would play perfectly fine on my PS3, but without trophy support, obviously.

I still have a Sega Genesis kicking around that a friend and I play occasionally (for nostalgia's sake) but not really regularly. Does that count?

Same, Rock Band 3 Customs for me. (Actually bought several wireless guitars off Craigslist for cheap) But also I have reattached my Kinect to kinda keep active and play the Kinect Sports I & II games to give myself some kind of cardio work out.
