I have a lot of older systems from when I was younger. My first system was a sega genesis then I got a playstation. After that a Nintendo 64, followed by a Sega Dreamcast, which I never used. Then I got a gamecube, playstation2, and then an xbox. the pass couple years I've gotten more into computer games though. We have an Xbox 360, but its technically my brothers, but we share it. I never really play it though. My family still has my moms old Intelevision game console. some of the games are dated back to 1977, and they still work!
Anyone else have major problems with the original fat ps2's? I'm on my 4th ps2 now... My first playstation2 broke after about a year of ownership. I then found a deal at gamestop that for 100$ and trade in of your broken console, they'll trade you a refurbished system. So the first refurb i get is still broken. Then the third was working pretty well, even though I could tell it was sluggish and was definitely far from being like new. It eventually died on me (I think the lens went, and I tried many things to fix it, but nothing worked). So then at best buy a few months ago I see a pretty good deal for a slim ps2. Of course i couldn't resist and bought it. So now I'm on my fourth ps2 lol...
Got to give Nintendo credit. Even though lately their systems haven't been the best, I think they have the least amount of problems. I've owned my gamecube longer then my ps2 and xbox and it still runs like the day I got it. My first Xbox had some problems, so I had to return it also, and our 360 kept freezing up, but a cooling fan is helping it out a lot.
