Gather round SW, its time to stop bickering for a while and actually have a civilised discussion.

Looking back on the 7th gen, what accessories did you buy for your consoles/handhelds? Did you buy the HD-DVD drive for the 360? Did you buy the Move Controllers for the PS3? Or did you buy a lightgun attachment for the Wii?

I've got a beautiful arcade fight stick that is probably obsolete at this point. and a charging system for my 360 controllers. That's about it.

I know, I know. My poor PS3 controller which is going on 5 years is begging for a merciful death. The sticks have started to stick and it does random shit sometimes when I move or jostle the controller. Hold out for one more year old buddy!!!!

Two of these with which I played House of the Dead Overkill with

And I got a Wireless Xbox 360 controller for Christmas last year

Of course it shouldn't. I'm a gamer of discerning taste =)

#26 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16480 posts) -

I bought this

#27 Posted by whiskeystrike (12068 posts) -

360 controller for the PC. Carrying case for my DS.

#28 Posted by lamprey263 (22456 posts) -

Guitar Hero controller, several Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers, that's about it. I did have a Wii and my roommates sister got my roommate Mario Kart Wii for him to play on my Wii, when we moved apart he gave me that and it came with a steering wheel attachment. Oh, I also got one of those Wii gun controller accessories to play with RE: Umbrella Chronicles but it worked like shit.

#29 Posted by RR360DD (11414 posts) -

Controllers for all my consoles. 360 webcam (waste of money). Play and charge kit. Wii motion+ for skyward sword. Rock Band kit.

Think thats pretty much it.

#30 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16480 posts) -

I did buy a 360 controller for my PC. I forgot about that. So one PS3 controller and one 360 controller.

#31 Posted by CountBleck12 (22494 posts) -

Just one Dualshock 4 controller along with a 360 wireless receiver for Windows.

#32 Edited by TheFadeForever (1634 posts) -

I think I bought like two that I rarely used

#33 Posted by jake44 (1908 posts) -

Nothing but extra controllers and headsets.

#34 Posted by getyeryayasout (6909 posts) -

Plastic guitar, microphone, fight stick, Logitech race wheel, PS Move, that stupid gun that goes with Move, Xbox camera (not Kinect), 3rd party controllers. Also an HDTV. I still don't think I'd feel the need to have an HDTV to this day if it weren't for HD consoles.

What do you mean an "extra" one? Do you not play with your friends or family ever? Do PC gamers realize that consoles have an awesome thing called couch multiplayer?

Isn't a TV something you already have before you buy a gaming system? And being an appliance that has its own function independent of gaming systems (watching TV) so that honestly doesn't count as a console accessory.

Then you list the consoles themselves, when this is supposed to be about the accessories added to them. Seems like you kind of miss the point of this topic.

Oh, you have no one else to play with. Why else would you call it an "extra" controller? More like you're missing five controllers (the PlayStation 3 supports up to seven players on one system at a time). I'm sure that controller is just incase the other one runs out.

You can't speak ill of consoles if you're not even getting the full experience of them.

...No it's extra because I had to buy it separately from the console. Would it have made you feel better if I said "second controller"? And actually, it is for playing little big planet 2 with my girlfriend.

Not sure how having 7 controllers would give me the "full [console] experience," or why my wording would upset you so much.

#42 Posted by Alcapello (524 posts) -

Dualshock threes for my PS3z

#43 Posted by Heil68 (42691 posts) -

I have 3 controllers for 360

2 for PS3

PS Move.

#44 Edited by lostrib (31771 posts) -

Forgot I also bought a vertical stand for my PS3 so it didn't take up as much desk space

360 controller

play and charge kit

#46 Posted by killatwill15 (845 posts) -

the ps3 3dtv, still rocking and awesome,

3ds circle pad pro,

3 ps3 controllers,

questionable amount of 360 controllers (I went through 3 systems since 2006 so the exact number??)

dualshock 4 for pc gaming,

and hopefully the xbone controller when Microsoft finally releases the drivers.

#47 Posted by inb4uall (5150 posts) -

I bought a cooling system for my xbox 360. It's probably why it's on of the few 360 phat's I've seen that never RRoD'd. I also got charge packs for my wii and 360 controllers and a charge station for my PS3 ones.

#48 Edited by jun_aka_pekto (15821 posts) -

Wired 360 controller for the PC

Logitech G25 driving wheel/pedals (both PC and PS3 compatible)

Charging stand for the PSP

Logitech clamshell case for the PSP

For my PS3?

PS3 remote control

360-style 3rd party controllers

Penguin United Eagle Eye keyboard/mouse converter. Very nice gizmo.

#49 Edited by Dire_Weasel (15886 posts) -

Oh man ... so many accessories.

4 Xbox 360 controllers

Xbox 360 Razer Onza

Xbox 360 120gb HD (my Xbox 360 came with a 20gb HD)

Xbox 360 wireless racing wheel

4 x Xbox headsets (they break so quickly)

Dualshock 3

3 x Wiimote

Wii Classic Controller

Rock Band MIDI controller

Rock Band Fender Squier Stratocaster (the real guitar with the midi fretboard)

Rock Band Wireless Fender Wooden Stratocaster Replica (full size, full weight fake replica with paddle and 5 buttons on fretboard)

Rock Band Cymbal Kit

Rock Band 2 Drum Kit

3 USB Microphones

Also I'm on my 5th Xbox 360, though two of them were sent back to be from the Microsoft repair center. I also have a logitech driving force wheel but I guess that's technically from the PS2 generation, even though it works on the Playstation 3 and supposedly on the Playstation 4.

... looking over this list makes me laugh at some of the low-information posters around here that insist on calling me a "cow". I spent a pretty good chunk of money on the Xbox 360, all those accessories, accessories, and eleven years of Xbox Live.
