From generation 2 all the way to generation 6 I never owned more than one home console at a time.  However, I had owned a PC from 1993 and onward, and I did a lot of PC gaming up until generation 7.  So I think I usually had two platforms, but my second platform was really the PC.  

Somewhere around generation 7, I decided I was through with PC gaming, so I got a PS3.  It had almost no games.  So I bought a Wii and it had a lot of fun games.  By the time I was tired of my Wii, the PS3 had a lot of fun games.  Then I got a Wii U.  It was ok, but not nearly as good as the Wii.  Then I got a PS4.  It was the most disappointing home console I've had yet.  Somewhere in there I also got a 3DS which was the most disappointing handheld console I've had yet. 

Then I got a Switch at launch.  It had a few dry spells the first year, but now the games I want are coming out faster than I can play them.  That is a good problem to have.   I don't foresee myself buying a new console anytime soon, because there are still tons of games I want on the Switch.

In the end I think that is what it comes down to, "Do I have enough games to play on my current consoles?"  If not, then people will get another console.  For some people 1 console will be more than enough.  For others, they might need all 3 and a PC too.  It just depends on if people feel they have enough games for themselves to play.
