Have you ever bought a console you didn't like?

I never have, I always check what games are coming out and then buy them. I have never owned a Nintendo product., despite having been gaming for years. I find it interesting that people don't realise that each piece of technology is marketed to a specific userbase so no matter how much you dislike it. Some people will always like it.

An amazing example is the Wii. I know a lot of gamers bought it and hated it. Yet the casual game base bought it barely played it and still loved it. I only post here occasionally as I run my own forum with a userbase I can control. It makes little sense to post on a forum where people don't understand this basic logic.

Nomad and original ds. Nomad just was too bulky and annoying. Original DS i hated the screen (so washed out) and the buttons (clicker crap). Did love the ds lite, dsi, and especially the xl though.

Nope. It's really hard to simply not like a console, unless you're brand loyalist.

Yeah, a Wii. I needed that Xenoblade in my veins though.

No.

Yeah... the original DS, PSP-1000, the Gemei X760 and JXD V3.

Those were all systems I disliked because of hardware qualms... Vita could end up on there if it doesn't shape up.

Yeah add PSP 1000 to my list. Hated the motion blur and the loading.

I've always have had reasons for buying a console in games but there is hardware that wasn't very good. The Sega-CD had terrible saves management and was slow and in general not very good tbh but Shining Force CD, Sonic CD, Snatcher and Popful Mail among others still made it worth it.

I don't care how much I enjoy a console really, it's about what games I play on it. I think the Wii is "better" than the Xbox 360 for this reason. There has never been a console so badly designed that it prevented me from enjoying good games.

No, I can't think of a single console I didn't actually like.
They all have something I enjoy on them. I just like some more than others.

I've had a PS1, SNES, N64, GBA, PS2, DS, PSP, Wii, 3DS and Vita.

Wii is the only one I didn't like.
