I took a nice amout of cash out of my Paper Boy Money that I had saved from when I was a teenager to buy the system on launch night with Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo Elements of Power, Call of Duty 2 and Quake 4. Then got PGR3 for Christmas. So I spent $600 launch week, lol. But yea It was money I had made off of a paper route and ebay. 7 hours of just sitting in a store but getting the 12th out of 12 systems was pretty sweet. I was 17 years old and a senior in HS, man it seems like so long ago, I miss the HS days.

Bought and paid for myself- I was 23 so I had no excuse. Gifts are one thing but if you're one of those spoiled kids driving a Beamer and have everything handed to you, then that annoys me.

I thought it was funny my best friend at that time would always get whatever he wanted for Christmas so that year he wanted an Xbox 360 and his mom gave him the cash to go get it but he had to stand in line outside for 20 hours to get his. He gets home with the system his mom takes it and puts it away for Christmas, he got it from her a few hours later but I still thought it was really funny. Get home after 20 hours of sitting in 10 degree weather with freezing rain and snow only to have the system taken out of your hands.

Well, at least he got his at launch... I preordered mine a year before release date and still didn't get mine until March.

Lucky though, I suppose... because PDZ alone would not have made me a happy new 360 owner... however, I got my console in the day Oblivion finally released, which was stellar. Played myself sick that week. :)

I'm 26, my old man would laugh his ass off if I asked him to buy something like that for me, the last system I got for a present was a SNES waaay back, that was for Christmas, now I get cartons of smokes, beer and lift tickets.

My parents bought me a GameBoy.

Every other console after that, I bought (read: had to buy) myself: PSX, Dreamcast, PS2, DSlite, Wii, X360.

That's why I never had a SNES, nor a N64. I couldn't afford it at the time.

I'm 28 and the last console my parents bought me was the original Playstation when it launched in 1995. I was 16 then. Every console since then has been with my own cash. Besides, no matter which way you look at it $300-$600 is not really that much money to spend on a system that will be supported from 4 to 6 years on average.

I work so I paid for my own.

I bought mine shortly after PS3 hit the market. I was a huge PS2 guy, hated original xbox. Gears came out on 360 and that pretty much closed the deal. Ran over to best buy and bought my pro bundle, gears, and an extra joystick. :)

Haha, the only games my parents have ever bought me were for the SNES. Rocko's Modern Life and Jurassic Park, used from Blockbuster. Was pretty shocking. My parents are very anti-tech.

In the past year and a half I have purchased my own PS3, 360 Elite, PSP, Wii (traded that back in real quick), and a 65" HDTV to compliment them all. It means a lot more to you when you actually have to earn your own toys.
