How Many Times Should We Buy Consoles

Gazing upon my console collection this morning, it struck me that I have purchased each of the consoles that I own (and several of the games) multiple times. Some of the purchases have been through necessity, others have been through desire to own more than one for LAN gaming. Unfortunately, I have also found myself forced to sell some of the consoles as I struggled for cash, only to purchase them again, or receive them as gifts.

Depends on which console you're talking about

I have owned a PS3 twice, a 360 4 times and a Wii 3 times. I would get fed up of them and then a game I wanted would come out on one of them and I would re-buy it. Yes, that's retarded.

I'm on my third wii, first PS3, I had 2 PS2's, 2 DS's, 3 Gamecubes and 2 NES's.

Not bad really. Most of the rebuyers were second hand, wouldnt pay full whack for an old console. Half the reason I wont invest in a Xbox 360.

Went thru 4 "NES" and "SNES" systems, stupid cheap knock offs!
My PS2 quit reading game discs, then soon after that all discs all together so I saved up for a 360.
My 360 quarter red-ringed on me, error E74! Microsoft sent me a new console to my door 3 days later, no charge.
Been smooth sailing since then. . .till my 360 started having the open disc tray problem which lasted for about a year and it miraculously fixed itself, true story. I thank God for that one till this day.
PS3 yellow lighted on me. SONY charged me R800! Jerks!
Blue screened on me twice now. Scared the heck out of me.
