Forums - Gaming Discussion - Buying a console for one game?

I have and I would again. I bought basically all of my consoles for just one game. Most of them had other good games after that.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I don't buy a console for one game. But regardless when FFXIII Versus got announced for PS3, I knew I had to own a PS3.

Can't say I would want to.

When I nabbed the Switch, I also nabbed multiple games on that same day, rather than simply sticking with the one game bundled with it.


Nope, i'd never buy a console for one or 2 games. Hence why i don't own an XBOne.

I originally got Wii U to play Wind Waker HD, ended up enjoying several more titles on the system after that.

I've never really done that, because I felt it wasn't a very practical investment.

GBA for Pokemon, it was very worth it tbh. Now while Pokemon is the main reason I buy a Nintendo handheld I have a much more diverse taste of games to back up my purchase on top of that.

I've bought consoles for one game before,released or announced. I got and wanted a ps2 just because I heard about FFX, got a GC just because of Luigi's Mansion. Bought Switch for BOTW.

Mostly though I'll buy a console just because I expect something from it long term. Like PS4, i didnt buy for one game, but i knew sony would be bringing great things to it, so overall long term investment to me was gonna pay off

Yes. I bought a Wii to play No More Heroes (huge fan of Killer 7). Beat it a few times, then traded in the Wii a few months later.

If you are gonna play the one game long enough that your dollar per hour entertainment investment is something you are ok with, go for it
