I finally coughed up the dough and invested in a Playstation 3 for The Last Guardian... if that ever comes out (hopefully next year, we can only cross our fingers).

Dead or Alive 4 mainly, I was young :) That along with Gears and Mass Effect.

Fable 2. DIssapointed!
 
Halo 3 as well, that was cool!

#5 Posted by Slaker117 (4842 posts) -

Halo 3 was the reason I got an Xbox 360. Bought a PS3 later because I wanted to play MGS4, Uncharted 2 and God of War 3. Was also interested in other games, but those were the big three.

I didn't buy my PS3 for a specific game, but the first thing I played on it was Infamous

#7 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I bought a 360 for GTA IV. Always have been a PC fellow.

#8 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

I bought a 360 for the GTA IV Episodes/DLC. Ironically enough, I could've just waited about a year and bought the DLC on PS3 instead, but too late. Love my Xbox anyway. 
 
If we're going back further, I bought a PS3 because my PS2 broke and the last backwards compatible PS3s were still in stock. Got Heavenly Sword because I needed a cool God of War type game to go along with my shiny new console. 
 
Bought an original Xbox for Dead or Alive 3, a PS2 for NBA Street of all things, a GBA for Tony Hawk 2.

I got my 360 for Gears. Kinda funny because I completely lost interest in vanilla shooters not long after. Got my Wii for Twilight Princess. It's mostly gathering dust now. Got my PS3 just because I wanted to have all of my bases covered. My PC must always be kept up to date. I also got a 3DS to replay Ocarina of Time. Kinda regretting that purchase now. Hopefully that will change soon.

I bought my current graphics card mainly for Portal 2; I know it's not exactly a high spec game, but I really wanted to play it as well as I could.

#11 Edited by NoCookiesForYou (760 posts) -

PS3 - MGS4, Heavy Rain and Bluray sold it for me.

Was huge fan of Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) when it came out for Xbox. There were really no other games like it, so i was sold on another game like that.

Last game of the Metal Gear Solid series, how could you not want to see how it ends?

PS3- Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction

360-Bioshock/Castle Carashers

#13 Posted by Deadmanforking (577 posts) -

I didn't get my consoles for a specific game. No one game, IMO, has been enough reason to buy a consol for. The reason I got my 360, was purely due to the dramatic death of the original Xbox. And plus it was a gift... I didn't get my PS3 till late 2009, when there was around 10 or so games that I really wanted.

#14 Edited by RaikohBlade (593 posts) -

Probably Halo 3. Played that game a lot...and nothing in particular for my PS3.

#15 Posted by Anund (897 posts) -

My PS3 I bought because hey, PS3! The 360 I picked up a lot later, because of Mass Effect.

#16 Posted by Trebz (487 posts) -

I bought my PS3 for MGS4, Ratchet & Clank Future and Blu-Ray. 
I bought my Wii for Nintendo franchises. 
I bought my 360 (which eventually broke and I didn't care to replace, prompting me to buy a PS3) to own a console from this generation, although probably for Halo.

#17 Posted by Xtrememuffinman (958 posts) -

PS3- MGS4. Actually bought the CE edition before I bought the system, and played it with my friend's.
 
Wii- Nintendo games in general. There was no specific game, though Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn was the first game I got. It was... extremely disappointing.

#18 Posted by shamroll (145 posts) -

Sega Genesis - Don't remember 
N64 - Turok and Mario Kart 64 
Xbox - It was a gift from my cousin.  It was a total surprise too since I didn't have any real desire to get a new console, but I wasn't about to let a gift like that go to waste so I played Max Payne which was part of the gift.
Xbox360 - Halo3 I guess since I had already played Halo and Halo2 on the Xbox

#19 Posted by C2C (855 posts) -

I'll just list the current era systems I have:

PS3: Everyday Shooter/Super Stardust HD

Wii: Wii Sports/Hype

PSP: Final Fantasy Tactics: WOTL

#20 Posted by EVO (3908 posts) -

I was an early adopter of the PS3, simply cause I'm a Playstation fanboy. But it wasn't until Alan Wake was nearing release that I bought a 360. Dead Rising was a also a huge factor in getting one, but I still haven't played it.

#21 Posted by DeF (4887 posts) -

Wii - Zelda: Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (+ any other major 1st party Nintendo game)
PS3 - BioShock, Assassin's Creed, MGS4, Final Fantasy Versus XIII (hahahahaah ........  :/ )
Xbox 360 - Alan Wake, Mass Effect, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
 
Bought the Wii at launch, a PS3 in 2008 and the 360 in 2010 when the Slim version launched. Originally, I was gonna buy a 360 instead of a PS3 mainly because of BioShock and Alan Wake but then they announced they were porting BioShock to PS3 and that was enough for me to go with PS3 first (also, all my friends are Sony fanboys and thus only had PS3s).

#28 Posted by Vexxan (4620 posts) -

Bought my 360 on the launch day so it wasn't for any specific titles at the time but I was really looking forward to Halo 3.

Bought my DSi XL to play Pokémon. Love me some Pokemon.

#29 Posted by Gamer_152 (14078 posts) -

I have a 360, a DS and a Wii at the moment, but although there were certain big titles on those systems which encouraged me to get them, I didn't buy any of them for a single game. Consoles are expensive and I could never fork out the money for one just because I wanted one game they had. On the Wii though, I was encouraged by Wii Sports, Mario Galaxy and Zelda: Twilight Princess, with the DS Super Mario 64 and the new Pokemon were pretty big factors and with the Xbox 360 I was after the Halo games and Viva Piñata among other things.

I just bought a 3DS for Ocarina of Time 3D. And because I bought it for $199 AUD from $349AUD and it's a killer deal I couldn't pass up.

#43 Posted by kalmis (1558 posts) -

GTA IV for Xbox 360 and Uncharted 1/2 for PS3.

#44 Posted by emergency (1193 posts) -

Uncharted 1 and 2.

#45 Edited by crusader8463 (14422 posts) -

I bought my 360 years ago because I hadn't fully switched over to PC as my main platform by then. So when I feel into some money I still had the old mentality of needing to own every system and I ended up buying it because I didn't have enough for a PS3 at the time; plus that was back when the PS3 was a barren wasteland. My PS3 I bought for all the exclusives and a back catalogue of PS2 games that I never got around to playing.

#46 Posted by MutieMoe (33 posts) -

MAG might have influenced me to get PS3.

#47 Posted by Capum15 (4900 posts) -

I got my 360 shortly after Halo 3 released. I didn't really get my PS3 for anything specific though, but one of the first things I got was Uncharted 2.

#48 Posted by TobbRobb (4647 posts) -

Sigh, I bought it for fucking Halo 3.

I bought my PS3 for Uncharted.

After that, I built a gaming PC to play all the multiplatform games on.
