What was the last video game system that you bought?

Recommended Posts

Famicom mini classic, but if that doesn't count. Before that the last one I had was Xbox One and just as with the PS4 and Wii U and PS3 and Xbox 360 and the Wii and GameCube and *sigh I sold it shortly after with great disappointment (I'm not getting the Switch...)

Bought a PS4 in October because I was angry and needed some distraction. It distracted me for about a week.

The most recent systems I have bought are actually not the newest Kids on the block you might say. I went on a bit of a retro console obsession last year. Ended up buying a NES with RGB mod. Simply stunning razor sharp graphics on an Original console. After that I also bought en RGB modded SNES mini/jr. As far as I am concerned the Original hardware with mods is simply the best way to play the games.

Finally, I also bought the NES Classic mini. Regular pre order since i detest al the flipping and scalping.

I seem to have purchased an HD Genesis, but I have yet to plug it in and compare its sound with a Genesis 2.

A bit of a bump, but I just discovered this thread.

Technically, the last console that I bought was the NES Classic, but it remains sealed in the box (in a storage unit, in another province) as I do not currently have a TV with HDMI inputs. 

More practically, my newest console is a PS 2 slim -- purchased new in about 2008. 

I am waiting on a price-drop on the C-64 Mini (they are currently at about Cdn$65 at my local Wal--Mart).

I thought I'd posted in this thread already, but I just checked every page, and it turns out I haven't, so...

The last console I bought was...the PS2 I think?  Either that or the Gamecube - I can't remember which I got first, but neither was bought until a price drop happened.

But the last video game system of any sort I ever bought was a PSP.  It was a terrible decision, not because of the system or the games, but because less than a week later I discovered the PPSP emulator, which would render the games in HD on my monitor and allow me to use a real controller, making for a far superior experience.  So I never actually used the system, and have only ever played PSP games on my computer.

Of course, I almost never play games of any sort anymore (the last time I booted up a game for even a minute was back in July), so I've long since decided that ANY system bought would be money wasted.

So, I'm curious, did you buy a game or anything else to go along with the system, or just pick up the system without something to play on it? And, if you did buy a game or games with it, what did you pick? :)

One of the reasons I bought the system after its lifespan was completely over was because I intended from the start to mod the system and play games saved on a micro SD card.  I had the necessary files and games downloaded and ready to go before I even bought the system.  I ultimately only played a few games this way, since as I said, I soon discovered that PPSP emulation was the superior way of experiencing the games.  That said, I DID purchase the UMD of Disgaea along with the system, though I've never actually played it, even to this day.
