What hardware do you own? (Consoles + PCs)

I may change this as it goes along.

Anyway, I couldn't find any threads on it, and I wanted to find out whether that statistic *ahem* that I got was right or wrong. So, check all that apply! If for some demented reason you feel that the Nokia N-Gage or something should be on the list, I'll edit it.

I got me a 60GB PS3 (the backwards compatible) type, second hand, from GameStop, as well as a pretty decent Dell laptop, which has been acting rather funky for a while (so I may need to make a phone call). Steam, of course. PS3's not registered with the Information Services office, though, so I can't access the internet on it yet, and thus don't have an online ID yet.

EDIT: Defining "minimal," "decent," and "super" computers. (Sorry about not doing this earlier)

Basically specs is what's being asked, regardless of notebook or desktop.


In addition, it's what would be currently great, normal, or minimal, as opposed to what it was when you bought/made it.

A fairly good PC, a 60 GB PS3, a Wii, an Xbox 360 (the Halo model), a PSP-2000, and a DS Lite.

...yeah, thank God it's going to be a while before more consoles come out.

PS3(mostly for Blu-Ray and Rock Band 2), Decent computer(3.16 core2duo) and my friends' Wii has taken up permanent residence at my place since I have a better TV and couch.

Thought about getting a 360 but I have too much entertainment as is.

Define supercomputer, is that "I can play Crysis reasonably well," or "I can run 8 copies of Crysis on Ultra High without any stuttering." And by that, I mean 1 copy.

Any, I decided to vote decent computer and 360.

If Bob's Game does not come out on Steam or XBLA, I'll probably have to buy a DS for that.

I play way too many video games. I have a ps3, a 360, a wii, a ds, a psp, and a decent computer...

The handhelds are just collecting dust atm. Wii is used for wii fit for my flatmates, 360 is used to play l4d and RE5, ps3 is used to play killzone 2 and resistance 2.

PC which can game well enough, PS3 (and 2, for that matter), DS, and PSP. I'm not playing a hell of a lot of any of them at the moment, but my PS3 comes in first, followed by my DS, followed by the PC I use to play a turn of Civ every couple of weeks, followed by the PSP which hasn't been turned on in like a year. At least it'll get some use when Birth by Sleep comes out. Whenever the fuck that is.

2 X360s only one of which works
My older brother has a wii (For the sake of gamers everywhere, will someone please publish a decent wii game?)
An old GBA.

I have an old acorn computer (more than 20 years old now), several low level computers, one medium and a beastly* laptop. I also have a DS and a Wii.

*Beastly consisting of a 2.5GHz dual core centrino processor, 2GB of ram (soon to be 4), a 512Mb dedicated graphics card, dual 200GB hard drives, etc.

I dunno, maybe I should have had more PC options, or at least a better definition.

Very well; let's take mine to be decent/normal. 2GBs RAM, 160GB drive (not a big factor), 1.7Ghz Core 2 Duo, a 128MB video card (Nvidia Geforce something), and... it's a laptop. XD

Basically specs is what's being asked, regardless of notebook or desktop.

I'd also like to note that my PS3 is bonked after playing it something like 10 times <insertangryfacehere>. Should I call Gamestop (bought it from them) or Sony? Friend recommends Sony anyway, which may have a point, since my 30 day warranty is up, but what do you guys think? (And for that matter, what's the number in case I can't find it? :mrgreen: )

I don't see why. I used a simple point-of-purchase definition. If it was a supermachine when you bought it three years ago, and you plan on buying another supermachine next year... then you check the supermachine box. Because the alternative is to judge by the standards of *Today* - being the day you answer the poll. So you'll constantly have to change what you selected based on your current hardware setup compared to today's market.

So it's easier.. and more honest.. to answer what it was when you bought it, not necessarily what it is now. I mean, the little shitty computers that are delegated to low-end office work *today* would have been a godly gaming machine at the release of the PS2. By the same token, the Godmachines of today, which I'll call "at the release of the PS3" for the sake of argument... will be low-end office-work machines six or seven years from now.

I think PS2 should have been included on that list. A lot of people still use the PS2 as their main gaming console.

Well, actually I was thinking more along the lines of how-good-would-it-be-now, since I don't think this thread will continue on for yeaaaars to come. (Actually, if it does, then we can all revote XD)

Apologies for that, though. I'll edit it onto my first post.

Decent PC (as in I can play modern games that are optimized alright (not Crysis or GTA4), but not maxed), Wii and DS.

I'm a PC gamer with a taste for a few console games (especially Nintendo franchises) and a need for some sort of portable gaming smaller than a laptop.

  • Wii
  • DS fat
And not on the list; a playstation one.

Cool, I got to check all the boxes. =D

I've got my main computer. It's probably not precisely "super" still, but the graphics card upgrade I did a couple of months back made it run crysis just fine, so I'll pretend it is. Besides, it's got three monitors. :D
Then there's my media computer as a decent computer. It played HD movies flawlessly and I've even played some games on it.
And then for minimal, there's the Eee.
For consoles, I've got Gamecube, Wii, PS2, PS3, 2x PSP, DS, [DS Lite (just sold it yesterday)], DSi, XBox, XBox 360. As soon as the Pandora is finished, I'll have one of those as well. Hopefully.

When I was younger, I've had a Commodore 128, Atari STFM, Atari STE (both at the same time!), Megadrive, and a whole bunch of PCs.
It pains me a lot that I got rid of these, especially the Ataris as that's where I learned to program and I had a lot of cool stuff there.

The only things I was able to keep unchecked were the Wii and the PS3.

The PS3 I'm going to try out in a few months, because it sounds like the price is coming down and they've got a few interesting games.

The Wii I did own for a while, but I couldn't justify continuing to own it. There just weren't very many games for it. I'd go downtown, and I'd see a few Wii games, but none of them were very interesting. I also didn't like the way the Internet was integrated into it. Besides the browser being something you had to pay for, the multiplayer was some ridiculous code system that basically shut you out of playing with anyone but people you were presently on the phone with. I pawned it for gas money.

The DS is alright, since it's got a few interesting games, but again I don't like the lack of internet support. It's got the ability to connect to the outside world, but you can't DO anything with it. I keep it, but it'll be the next console I get rid of.

I like the xbox and psp very much for their excellent internet support, the latter's reasonable online game store, and the former's game store and selection at the store.

I think all the current consoles are stupid for not letting me buy full fledged games online, a la steam. I bought left 4 dead for the PC because I could get it for the PC, but on the xbox, I'd have to dig up a physical copy and you can't find it here.

I've also got a netbook and a good PC.

I own a PSP, an original Xbox, a Wii, and the supercomputer. A Dell XPS 4 gb ram, quad core with a graphics card in the nvidia 9000 series. I'm not sure which (posting off my iPhone... Does that count?). I've also discovered that I can almost afford a new maxed out Mac Pro. An indicator for my computer now is maxed out Flight Simulator X without stuttering (never looked into Crysis).
