Title: Which do you own?
Post by: The Evil Blob on March 17, 2005, 01:44:24 pm
Just wondering what everyone has. My bet is that "A PS2 and an XBox" will get the most votes.

I, of course, have them all. ;D

None at the moment -- I'm a PC guy until further notice.

I'd been dabbling with the notion of an Xbox, but with the next generation consoles just down the road, I'm leaning toward waiting.

I did have a Gamecube, but I traded it in and used the EB store credit to buy an XBox. This, of course, was before they announced a whole lot of the good games for it. The new Zelda game, for example. Shortly before last year's E3, I believe. I'm really starting to regret that. I'm not an FPS fan and outside of that genre, there are probably 5 noteworthy games for the XBox. TES 3, practically the only reason I keep the thing, is also available for the PC. Another game for the XBox, Fable, lived up to about 20% of its hype. I was very disappointed by that. Especially when you consider that Fable was the one game that won me over when buying the XBox. I may get Halo, but that's still up in the air.

In short, unless you're a hardcore FPS fan, I would not recommend getting an XBox.

Edit: I own an XBox and a PS2, by the way.

All three along with various retro consoles and handhelds. I just can't bring myself to get rid of any of them.

Very true. Every now and then, I find myself playing the original Civ on my old SNES.

I don't know why, but I've never bothered to pick up a PS2. I think I'm afraid of it, there's too many games I would want to play if I did get one, and I'm not that rich.

There are a lot of good games for the PS2. For that reason, I would say it's my favorite console.

I have a PS2 and 'Cube, but I almost never play them unless I have friends over.  8) I'd much rather sit in the "glowing warm, warming glow" of my lovely PC.

Don't have any, don't want any.  They only have a few games that i want - and i can get them on the PC eventually.

I own all three and a macintrash.  However, I have friends and a mother with PCs so I buy games for them and play them when no-one's watching...  Not so much.  But, thanks to my ADD, my friends don't have to wait long before i'm bored with a game and they can play it all they want at a more reasonable rate.  I used to play more games on my iBook but after I put OS X on it, it decided not to like games.  le sigh...  -leeman

A PS2 and a Gamecube! Had to get the Gamecube, all of my fondest gaming memories are from Nintendo NES and SNES.

got them all + a 360 ;D
Title: Re: Which do you own?
Post by: WinterSnowblind on May 29, 2006, 12:16:25 am
I have all of them too.  Plus a 360 and a DS.
I still want to get a PSP sometime, but it's been over a year now, and there's still only two or three games I'd even remotly think about getting for it..

Out of the three consoles though, I use my Xbox the most, I can see why more people like the PS2, but the whole Japanese RPG thing wore out for me pretty fast.

Maybe I shouldn't have revived this thread, since it is a year old.

PS2, and hopefully a 360 later this year.

I'm kind of a one console per generation person.

just a good old ps2 for me  ;D

Well, at one point I owned all 3 at the same time, but now I'm down to the PS2... and a 360.
Damn, I do miss the Gamecube, though. I'd pick up another one if the Wii wasn't right around the corner.

Post by: Djfinny on June 01, 2006, 06:37:44 am
I own all 3 plus about 10-15 consoles / handhelds (I've started collecting a few years ago) and after the E3 coverage, I'll be picking up my 360 very soon.  I've also have a gaming PC. Like a few others have mentioned already - I play my PC the most. .
