Hello people





I am just curious as to people's preference of games consoles.





currently i own the PS one, PS2, Microsoft Xbox crystal, Microsoft Xboxc Black, Microsoft Xbox 360, i am practically on my xbox 360 gaming online all the time, it is fantastic and the web of friends i have built up over a while is great?? it is a whole new world of interaction for me???





Let me know and others what you think or how you interact with consoles???





Many thanks







The following is my microsoft gamertag

welcome to Geekzone.

I have a PS2. I havent played it at all for about 4 months. I normally try and play at least 1 or 2 hours a month!! (yes - laugh... but im just too busy for gaming to really feature in my life, much as I enjoy gaming!!)

I love my Wii to pieces. Perfect for the casual gamer, and the virtual console makes nostalgia very practical.

I couldn't recommend one for the serious gamer though - still short on games and online play is non-existant.

I have a Sega Dreamcast with about 250 games and all the accessories. I can't help it - I like retro.

Mate, know how you feel.  I have a PS2 and it got some action a couple months back when I was staying in hotel in New Plymouth... but now that I'm reunited with my family it NEVER gets turned on: my 18-month old consumes all available time and we have another due in June.

*whew*




Cheers, Stevo

YOU HAVE DREAMCAST! I so want to give it a try, never played DreamCast before, it's the predecessor to Xbox!!! (Sega and Microsoft's WinCE joint-venture project)

I actually found a 'Fountain Video Programmable System' from 1979 in a rubbish bin. And I have an Atari 2600.

I never owned a Dreamcast, but do own Mortal Kombat Gold (an enhansed MK4 remake for the Dreamcast)

Was a Huge MK fan back in the day.
