But its only a waste if you don't see any value in them. Many hardcore gamers enjoy having access to exclusives on multiple platforms.
Personally I feel paying for cable is a waste because I don't really watch TV but many value that service.
The value diminishes with each additional console, though. If I buy a PS4 for $400, the XBO instantly offers only about 10% of content I don't already have access to, yet remains $400. Going ahead and still buying that console after knowing that makes no sense if you value money. You're buying the first console for $400 thinking "this is worth $400 because it will offer me access to 1000 games I couldn't have played before," but then saying "this second console is still worth $400 even though it will only offer me 50 more games I couldn't have played before." I don't care if other people do it, but they're throwing money away.
I do watch TV and know that cable is a waste. There are several alternatives that cost less to nothing and offer infinitely more freedom than cable ever will.
That's a valid argument. I had a 360 but I didn't even consider buying a PS3 and Wii until I could get them cheap because I only wanted them for exclusives.
I've completed a couple hundred games on Xbox 360 since 2008, but only about 25 games on PS3 and I had it since 2011. However, I did have a few hundred hours of enjoyment with PS3 so it was worth a $250 investment.
Anyhow, having all consoles RIGHT NOW isn't a worthwhile investment to me. I'm too busy and have plenty to play. But I certainly want PS4 and Wii U at some point and they'll be cheaper down the road.
