Will Hardcore Gamers Keep Purchasing Multiple Consoles?

Most avid gamers have multiple consoles in each generation, but will that trend continue when the new era rolls around? Or are we picking sides? (Culture, Next-Gen)

All depends on price, online setup, and the quality of future exclusive offerings.

Especially the price part.

Exclusive are not a deal breaker for me. M$ had a lot of exclusive that are no longer made (for good reason). If the exclusives are Skyrim,GTA,Halo,GOW,Gears,Unch arted, ME, Madden,Fifa,GT,Forza, Mario, Zelda, ..., quality, then I could see that being a huge cosideration. But I do not avoid play a game or enjoy it any less becuase of its exclusive status.
What I really care about is which system the games I want preform better on and has the controller and the added perks that I have come to expect from a console. What is the point of having 50 exclusives when the games you really like to play are the ones that don't perform properly on your console or you have to play with a controller that you can't get comfortable with?

I picked xbox 360 for the price, I stuck with it for the quality experience.
I now have both 360 and PS3 and like most dual console owners I play my multiplats on 360 and my ps3 is mostly an exclusives and blu-ray machine. I don't know what it is, but even with a PS3, I still feel compelled to play online via Xbox Live Gold, for me it's just plain and simply the better experience of the two.
