the concept of "Maining" a console just seems stupid to me

Around the Network

PS One


Consoles on left hand side show preference.
N64/ PC
PC/Xbox 360
Next gen: Probably PC/Nextbox (ill probably get it for its multimedia features more than for gaming)

I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!!

I plan to buy a PS3 once "Beyond 2 Souls" and "The Last of Us" are out...and if they're THAT good.

You do know that the 3DS has much more crisper looking graphics then PC? (thanks to the 3D effect)

You can't be serious. 

The Nintendo 3DS with the 3D ON has much more crisper "Looking" graphics then HD graphics, Literally.

Ur saying in any given generation there wasnt a console u spent more time playing than others? Because thats all this thread is about, for example if during the 6th gen u owned a ps2 and xbox but u owned over 20 ps2 games and only 5 xbox games then ps2 would be your prinary console that gen.
