    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    I have a original Playstation, original Xbox and a 250Gb PS3 Slim. The original Playstation got the most use out of the three by a big margin but haven't played on it for many years now. The Xbox got quite a bit of use but again, I haven't played it for years. The PS3 only has around 30 hours use. I bought it mainly for GT5 but was so disappointed with the game being nowhere as good as the originals on the 1st Playstation I lost interest in it. I tried a few other games but to be honest couldn't get into them. The controllers don't help either as they are too small for my hands and make my hands hurt. I tried a couple of third party controllers which were slightly larger but the damage was done and I never really got into the whole modern console thing. All three are sitting in their boxes in a cupboard. At the end of the day the perfect gaming machine for me is a pc with mouse and keyboard control for most games, a stick with throttles for flight sims and a wheel and pedals for driving sims.

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    I lost all of my old consoles in a divorce, so all I have now is an Xbox One. I use it daily for streaming, and play games occasionally. I mostly play MMOs on my PC. I play RPGs and action games on the console.

    Switch and PS4. No reason to keep my old consoles when emulation exists

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    I've never owned a console, but I've played on friends ones at various points, with those including: SNES, Megadrive, PS1, PS3, PS4 and Wii. Out of those I think I spent the most time with the PS1, since I borrowed it for a couple of months on two separate occasions in the late 90's and early 2000's. I should add that I have been playing PC games for many years, and still play lots of PC games currently.

    Don't horde these things. So I have an Xbox One S and an Xbox One X.
    And a kick ass gaming rig. Of course

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    The switch is the only one still in regular use.

    Have still hooked up / available: PS3, 360, PS Vita
    In storage: far too many Nintendo portables, PS2, Megadrive, PSP, Gamegear.

    But really my gaming is all PC plus a bit of the Nintendo switch when travelling/in bed.

    I got the 360 and PS3 super cheap after the current gen consoles released for the few exclusive games not on the PC. I'll probably do the same with the XB1/PS4 whenever the next gen of consoles releases.

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    Jumped to PC after the Sega Master System. I have played a few console games via emulators which tend to give a better experience than the consoles, e.g. Breath of the Wild.

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    My switch is gathering dust, my previous xbox 360 practically got no use and have mainly played with either PC or nintendo handsets. Also have ps1, ps2, psp (which also wasn't used too much), gameboy colour, gameboy advance, DS and 3DS XL.

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    I used to have an Xbox 360 but, could not get on with the controller, too small for my big hands and long digits, so sold it after a long time gathering dust. Got a good PC now and will not be considering a console again.

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    Xbox One - Constant use
    PS4 - intermittent use, mainly for VR
    Switch - when something interests me - Xenoblade Chronicles got hammered.
    Vita - Rare
    DS3 - Rare
    ps3 - never
    xbox 360 - in bits


    xbox one atm does everything I need, plenty of games and all the TV apps I use.
    We're only here for the Banter - The Luvvies - Chewin' The Fat

    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.
