Having my ps3 turn on and sound like a noisy jet has made me think of all the consoles I bought multiple times, hopefully my ps3 lasts awhile longer. Anyway what consoles have you bought multiple times? For me it would be:
- I bought a silver gamecube after my black one broke from overheating.
- I bought a PSP 3000 when my 1000 broke from a drop down some stairs.
- I bought a DSlite to upgrade from the fat one, well worth the upgrade in my opinion.

My 360 broke a month after I bought it, so instead of waiting a month for it to get repaired I went to the store and got another cheap.

I bought a DS Lite after breaking my original DS fat, then I bought a second DS Lite when my second DS broke in half, then I bought a DSi so I could give my third DS to my new girlfriend. Also I've bought about 4 PCs does that count?

@StarvingGamer PCs are more of an upgrade, I doubt you'll invest in a new PC that's identical to your previous one.

I'm also in the 'replacement DS club;' the screen went bad on my first Lite so I grabbed a second one used for sixty bucks. Otherwise, no, I've never had another system go bad on me while currently in use (except my 360, which was warrantied) and never felt the need to upgrade to a slim model if I had a fat.

Gave my original Xbox to my brother because I thought I was done with Morrowind.  One month later I bought both another Xbox and a new copy of Morrowind.

 The original Playstation, 3 times. The disc reader keeps overheating or fails to read anymore disc. Estimate lifespan was a year for each. All eventually failed past it's warranty.
 
GBA to a GBA SP (upgrades)
 
The Nintendo DS to a DS Lite to a DSi. (upgrades)
 
Playstation 2 only once and still runs like a champ. (I still play games on this today, initially bought at launch)
 
 Xbox once; now  that ugly box is retired to a dusty shelf, but still works.

Bought two for different rooms Xbox 360, but sent out once for repairs. Still happy with them.

My first 360 went in for warranty repairs twice.  After it went out of warranty it busted again and I bought a new one.  That was sometime early last year.  The new one went in for warranty once already.  Now the rear USB ports on it are dead and it locks up every now and then just sitting at the home screen.  What the hell Microsoft.

Well the 360 I got from a friend has been working fine for half a year now, even considering that prior to that it was vigorously used for 3 years, so guess I got a champ in my hands :p
 
The only console I've bought twice was my PS1, it broke down day one and with no warranty, I had to get a new one.

Upgraded my fat DS to DS lite after the touch screen stopped responding. I managed to fix the touch screen by cleaning out all the dust that had become stuck between the system and the screen, but the DS lite was such a huge improvement with even just the screen brightness  that I never played on the fat again.

Was given a free PS3 slim when my 60GB got the yellow light after two years. Broke on Christmas eve of all times =(
New 360 when my first got the raw ring of redness... after about 3 hours. It was second hand, mind you.

I sold my first 360 to buy a PS3, then about 6 months ago I bought a 360 again. Atleast the new one is actually quiet enough to use...
I also bought a DS lite even though I had a working DS.

I bought a replacement gamecube when my brother dropped mine several times (surprised it lasted so long), bought a silver PS2 after I traded in my black on for my PS3, also bought a DS Lite to replace DS and DSi to replace DS Lite. Oh, and a GBA SP to replace my nearly destroyed GBA.

2x NES, 2x PS2, 2x Megadrive, 2x 360. Might buy a third 360. Also I'll never ever sell any old consoles again, it's a bitch to find them back.

I guess I'm the lucky one here - none of my consoles have ever broken. And I own a SNES, GB, GBC, GBA, N64, PS1, PS2 and PS3.
Am currently considering buying a Xbox 360 S but you guys' tales of broken hardware are scaring me :(

I bought the original PS2, the PS2 slim (PAL), and another PS2 slim (US). 
I also bought two 360s--you know, because the first one broke the fuck down.

Bought 3 Sega Saturn consoles as well, cause why not.

My 60GB PS3 died, so replaced it with a slim(tried fixing the old one, didn't work and too much of a hassle for what would a limited return to try it again).
 
I also picked up a 360 slim last week, my 20GB HDD just wasn't cutting it anymore. Seeing that a new 360 with Forza 3 and Alan Wake would only be about $180 more, I said fuck it and sold my old one to my lil'bro.

Bought a second PS3 when my 60gig broke. But I was thinking of buying some backup PS2s incase in the far future any of them break down. Should do that same with my NES, I need to find a top loader.
