PS3? 360? Wii? Wii U? PS Vita? 3DS?

(Or something older)

  1. Get all consoles for free.
  2. Sell consoles.
  3. Buy PC hardware.

Well, I dunno. I own at least two or three of everything mentioned, except the Wii U and I'll end up owning at least two of everything in the next generation, too. Free wouldn't change my mind about any of it (except maybe it'd get me a Wii U faster, since I have no interest in one, really).

If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promise of life, as if he related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away. This responsiveness had nothing to do with that flabby impressionability which is dignified under the name of the 'creative temperament'-it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again. No - 1m4d34g4m3w1thz0mb13s turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on 1m4d34g4m3w1thz0mb13s, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men.

PS3. Sony hasn't dropped the price low enough for me to think about buying one for their exclusives alone, plus, I could still use a blu-ray player (I still haven't seen Avatar or some CG eye candy of the past few years that would benefit from blu-ray).

Wait in this scenario do already have all the consoles I currently have? If thats the case I already have a shit load of consoles, but not a 360 so I would go with that. If I however didn't have any consoles I would go with a N64, I could spend the rest of my life happy if thats all I had.

Oh man, either a Coleco Vision or a Dreamcast.

If it was free? Probably a PS3, just to play Journey and a couple other exclusives. Then I would sell it and buy something to upgrade my PC. Or a Wii U and hold out for better exclusives.

Edit: Now that I think about it, I'd like to play Persona 4 Golden, so a Vita could also be interesting. I would sell it afterwards, though.

Pristine Dreamcast because I never owned one and I really want to get one now for no apparent reason

I'd get a Wii U, because I already own a PS3, 360, and Wii, and I'm waiting to receive the 3DS I ordered, so it'd be down to a Wii U, and a PS Vita... And I see a lot more future potential in the Wii U at this point, simply for Nintendo exclusives alone. The Vita has nothing.

I bought a PS3 at launch, so price wasn't really an issue for me.

A PS Vita. I already have a 360 and a Wii, my brother has a PS3 and I don't want to play it that often. I don't have the slightest interest in a Wii U. A 3DS would be nice but I see a whole lot more potential in the Vita and really, I'm not going to kid myself - there is only one game I'd really like to play on the 3DS, Super Mario 3D Land. Nothing else is really all that interesting. At least with a Vita I'd have a PSP and PS1 combined if nothing else ever comes out with it.

Wii U. I already have the others except PSVita, and while P4G is a compelling argument, it's still a port of a PS2 game, and it's no Monster Hunter. 
Also if it's only the console you'd have to buy an extra memory card for the PSVita I guess, yuck. Although maybe that means you'd also need to buy the pro controller for the WiiU separately, yuck.

The PS3, I guess. It's really a toss-up between that and the Vita, and I imagine there are more games I'd want on a PS3 than I'd want on a Vita.

I have all of this gen's consoles, and I'm not too into handhelds. It'll be an investment, when Nintendo happens.

Probably the Wii U just so I can play Dragon Quest X when it drops at some point in the future. It's the only game on the system I'm interested in.

Wii U as any other console/ handheld I'd consider getting I could pick up for cheaper than the price of the Wii U.

Hmm....either a 360 to replace my broken one, or a Vita just to play P4.

If I didn't have any consoles then I would get a 360. Since I have both a 360 and a PS3..a Wii U..always good to have a paper weight.

I was going to say 360 because I have the old 20gb pre HDMI cable one -which means I can't have both it and my Wii plugged in at the same time because my TV doesn't have the ports for it- but I think I will go Wii U. That way I could just get rid of the Wii entirely and just use the Wii U to play those Wii games I bought and have yet to touch. I just have zero desire to buy a Wii U right now. Still waiting for it to get a game worth playing.

Ether way, it would all just keep sitting in the corner collecting dust while I play on my PC.

Can I pick an arcade machine? I mean, that would probably be a more interesting choice too, picking between the hundreds of machine choices...

I'd probably go with Dig Dug
