Now that new consoles are launching those of us who plan to upgrade also need to figure out what to do with the old boxes. A lot of people plan to sell or have already sold theirs. Some people like to store their old consoles for posterity's sake. For prior generations a lot of people would leave them hooked up to play older titles on, but with both the XBSX/S and PS5 being backwards compatible there's not much reason to do that with these boxes (unless you're that one guy who still has his Kinect hooked up or you're the world's biggest Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma - Volume One fan, in which case more power to you, live that Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma fan lifestyle proudly.)
So what are your plans? I don't really like selling old consoles for nostalgia and other reasons so I'm probably going to repurpose these old machines. My Xbox One X has already been hooked up to the TV on my treadmill, where it will live from now on. Playing games on the treadmill is pretty tough (I can't play anything while running but I can play some basic turn-based stuff like RPGs while briskly walking at a steep incline) but the XBOX is a very capable streaming box so it will mostly be used for that, and maybe I'll try doing some basic grinding and stuff while I'm walking on it.
I am curious as to how many people plan to sell theirs vs give it to a sibling or someone vs just keep it for whatever reason.
Also I feel like a lot of people are going to end up with a PS3 and a PS5 hooked up to their TV but no PS4, which is a little bit strange.
