The Xbox 360... Or the RROD Box... Should have just bought a PS3 instead from the get go. It worked fine for a year and I was enjoying it, but it RRODed on me one summer and I sent it to Microsoft for repairs. After waiting a month to get it back it only lasted a week before it RRODed on me again... During that time I sent it back for a 2nd time I already bought all the games I had for it on my PS3 because I was growing Impatient. I tried it again and it worked a good 3 months before it RRODed on me a Third time... Now its somewhere in my closet attracting dust...

I regretted buying a dreamcast last year, shenmue 1 wasnt worth it to be honest. Most of this consoles games exist on other consoles.


wouldn't have bought a Dreamcast unless you were really into space shooters and fighting games

I mean you had to know that the library is practically empty of adventure and story based games (besides a few half decent horror titles)



Yes. The Xbox 360.

 

I got it over the PS3 becaue at the time "lol PS3 has no gaems" was a thing and the damn console cost a fortune.

 

But over the years, I went through not one, not two, but three Xbox 360s. Worst thing is, I bought it initially for Multiplats but Multiplats starting coming to PC as well and since I had a good gaming PC, the value of the 360 dropped. In addition, the list of exclusives for the system was disappointing. I didn't like Halo so that left me with Forza and Gears of War and in the end, they weren't worth buying four 360s for it. When I got a PS3 much later, I never touched my 360 ever again.



no regrets per say but in terms of systems that got little use for their value/cost at the time

Wii and PS3. didn't use either much

It's hard for me to say I outright regret buying my Wii U because no matter what I needed to play Pikmin 3, and I did get to enjoy it. But overall it's borderlining on regret. At the very least I regret buying one at launch. Picking up a cheaper bundle with Zelda and Pikmin this upcoming Christmas would have made me feel much better about it, but right now the experience I'm getting is not worth what I paid. The games Nintendo is making right now just aren't for me.



Currently playing:

Bloodbath Paddy Wagon Ultra 9

I usually do research before getting consoles, so no.



Nope, not once in my 25yrs of gaming.

Yeah but if i want to play a game you buy the console that its avaible for



Yes. I eon't mention the console but it gave me tons of grief and its online refuses to work in this part of the world.



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine
