Are you truly loyal to your chosen console manufacturer?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Are you truly loyal to your chosen console manufacturer?

I see many people claiming to be "hardcore" and "loyal" in their game purchasing patterns. Some even claim to be a "fanboy" and defend their chosen system in every topic. I believe this is hypocritical unless you unwaveringly buy from one company and one company only. How many of you are truly devoted to Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo for all hardware, peripherals and software?

 

 

I, for example, have never bought a non-Nintendo-published system or game.

Everybody's a hypocrite. It's no big deal.

It's those people who won't admit that they're hypocrites. They're so damn... what's the word?

No, not really. I love the Wii but it is my first Nintendo console. I would like a little more power on my console but better graphics would not make up for the loss on the control the Wiimote gives on certain games. I expect to be buying a secondary console later on, that is if I can find time among all the recent Wii releases and upcomings. It will probably be a PS3 but I have waivered a bit on that at times as I have seen more games on the 360 that I might want to go with.

I am loyal. If my Wii breaks down, i have to kill myself.

Anyway, Game boy, you have never really bought a game which is not published by Nintendo? No 3rd party game? You must be kidding.

I have never bought non-Nintendo console, although me and my brothers had PSX, but it was bought by my brother because of the N64 games drought. I did buy Gran Turismo 2 for the PSX (which by the way sucked), and have bought 3rd party games on my Nintendo consoles.

Nintendo games sell only on Nintendo system.

Loyal doesn't mean you can't enjoy other companies' hardware. I'm a diehard Nintendo fanboy. I've bought every one of their consoles and all handhelds except for Virtual Boy. I have every main series Mario game and several Zeldas. They are by far my favourite company and the best developers in the business. I also buy other consoles (all the Playstations and both Xboxes). Does this mean I haven't been loyal to Nintendo?

I am loyal to Nintendo. I have never purchased a non-Nintendo system, but I have bought five PS1 games (Gran Turismo 2, Alundra 2, Spyro 1-3).

It doesn't matter to me whether or not a game for a Nintendo console is published by Nintendo or a 3rd party company. As long as the game is good and in a genre I like, I buy it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I've got a Wii, DS, Gameboy Pocket, SNES and NES. I only buy Nintendo consoles. I'm not crazily loyal though. I won't buy a console if it's a flop. I always buy at least one third party game per console.



I have a loyalty to Nintendo as they have a great software library thats nearly always brilliantly optimised for the relevant system.

I have owned a PS1 and Xbox in the past and I will probably get one on the new consoles next year.



I´ve never been loyal to any company,thank god.

I'm not. My parents bought RRR for my brother and Mysims for themselves, but no, I have never willingly bought a third-party game.
