My biggest regret is buying a PS3, I bought a 360 at launch and by the time the PS3 came out, i had fell in love with the 360 and endiing up using my PS3 strictly as a Blu-Ray player.

I don't have any regrets with the systems I have acquired or purchased, although I do regret missing out on some systems, specifically the Genesis, Dreamcast, Xbox, and PS3.

I've been lucky enough to avoid the genuinely bad systems like the Sega CD, Jaguar, CD-i,etc. Except the Virtual Boy, I did get that, although I did not actually buy that myself and think my parents got that for an older brother.

None. I did a lot of research before buying any console.

Buying a PS4. Spent all of last year getting into the hype and asking myself who the hell would buy an Xbox One. After playing it for awhile and hating the UI, and realizing the exclusives sucked and nothing was coming out for awhile I sold it and got an Xbox One, best choice I've made.

@1080pOnly: AVP on the Jag was an incredible game for its time, I remember that game fondly as well as Iron Soldier, almost made the money I paid for the Jag worthwhile.

My only regrets are selling consoles when I was younger. I just purchased a Virtual Boy for 3 times what I spent in the Toys R Us bargain bin years and years ago. And why the hell didn't I buy Neo Geo AES carts when they were "cheap." I also fried a Dreamcast back in the day because of shitty 3rd party controllers. None of my controller ports worked just weeks after buying that thing. (Niko)

Xbox 360. I spent a lot on it and barely used it. Wifi adaptor, 2 sets of battery chargers, Gold membership. I got it just when the PS3 started picking up. I did use it for awhile for multiplatforms but not for too long as I built my own PC and used that for most of my games. I think the 360 is a good system, I just didn't use it much and it was my fault due to poor planning and making impulsive decisions. It is my only console regret.

DS and PSP. Never was a big fan of handheld gaming except for the rare Pokemon binge

Launch day ps4 and xb1 purchases. I just, i like new things, sometimes merely for the sake of um novelty... oh and the WiiU. I do have some pc regrets as well, i really really wanted an r9 290 but had to "settle" for a gtx 770 4GB because of the sudden mark ups, even the 7970ghz/280x cost more at that point.

PS2 was mine!

Both current gen consoles.
Sony and Microsoft proved, being an early adopter screws you over.. both my consoles have not been touched for over a month, they both dont have any interesting games to play yet. Titanfall and the Witcher 3 will change that, but they are on PC as well which says a lot.. from now on, i wont invest in a console until it at least has 10 games worth buying.

I've been buying consoles for a long time and I only have one regret: buying a 360

-RROD: never had any hardware malfunction with any console I've bought before, with the 360 it just died for no reason

-Weakest libary near the end. The 360 had a great start with games like Kameo, Saints Row, Gears of War and Alan Wake. Those were all interesting games and new IP. Near the end, all we got was another Halo, another Forza, another Gears.

what? how is that possible?

I'd say the Panasonic 3DO. What a waste of $600. It had some decent games but definitely not enough to justify the price tag.

Regret buying a 360. RROD. Being stupid enough to pay for XBL.

No regrets about buying a PS3 after I sold my 360.

Regret buying a PS4 too early. Being stupid enough to pay for one month of PS+.

Back to PC gaming. No regrets. Just the opposite.

The SNES. I only had 3-5 games for it so it gathered much dust.
