Default What game system(s) do you own?

Hey, guys, I'm curious, what do you guys own when it comes to game systems? No, I'm not going to ask if you own a SNES... because really, who DOESN'T?

I own the 360/ps3/wii, however I only use the 360.

No good games for the wii really (besides the ones I already beat, such as the amazing paper mario), though I do play some classic games on my wii, such as super mario world, and donkey kong country.

same deal with the ps3, it gets a workout as a blu-ray player.

my 360, i play whenever I get the chance.

I still use my pc for most gaming needs, except when rendering, then I have to use the 360 =P

On the U.S. ps3 you can because it has a ps2 chip incorperated into it too but on the European one it is software based so although you can play them it's not 100 % compatable with all ps2 games.

Yes, you can.

The new US machines (80gb) is software based like the UK.

xbox 360 can play some xbox games

the wii can play all gamecube games (and with VC, practically all nintendo games ever made, provided you buy them)

I don't have any. I don't even know what a SNES is. The very few times I do play a game it's on our PC and it's usually a kids game.

I've played play station a couple of times. The first time was at a friends house several years ago and we played Halo. It was so much fun I didn't want to leave. The other time, it was some kind of Karate game and it was really fun too.

I can say that if I did have a game system, I'd never get anything done because I'd probably be on it all the time.

So far i have owned and broken 3 XBox's, 3 PS2's (Now owning a 4th) and the most recent is a Wii (Wich wont take disks anymore )

I don't think i was meant to own a console for more than a year at a time.

Still on the good old PC here though after going round to a friends and playing the Wii I can see the group enjoyment of one.
My friend has always been PC and now he's a hardcore XBox 360'er. They are good but I dont really see any new innovation in any of the games - same old really...

p.s, never owned a snes mike, I was an amiga dude

Oh and my jaguar comes ot to play once in a while AvsP rocked on it. But at heart I`m a PS fan

PS2 here...currently milking FF XII for all it's worth. Then need to finish DMC III. Okami and God of War II on the list when the used prices go way down...always on the bleeding edge..

I own a Wii, as I am a hardcore Nintendo fanboy. I’ve completely lost respect for Sony after E3 ‘06. I don’t like Microsoft, but I like the 360 (who doesn’t like Gears of War or Halo?).

Recently I haven’t been playing too many games (Maya……), but when SMG and SSBB come out I will probably not be on this forum for a while.
