I'd go with replacing the PS3 and would wait a bit to replace the Wii U. Screw the older consoles, they are nice to have around, but I never play them.

I have very little to spend on gaming these days. I'd get a GC capable Wii and install everything back onto it. Luckily my PC can handle half my 360 collection

Who voted nothing?
#4kdognumba1Posted 2/24/2013 8:41:46 AM
I voted the nothing option, more so because I'd quit console gaming all together. Fact of the matter is, I already have a lot of PC games. If my entire console collection was taken away from me, I'd move away from console gaming as a whole and go primarily PC. As it stands, I don't like how console gaming is evolving in this more digital age and I may end up not purchasing any new dedicated systems because of bad decisions from the console companies.

I would buy a Wii that plays GC, mod it so that I can play all of my old N64 games...and probably get an SNES because that system is still and will always be my favorite system. And I might as well get a PS2 since those are dirt cheap.

I'm actually surprised at the number of "Nothing" votes. I considered ditching consoles myself, but I don't think I'd ever be able to turn down a shiny new system like the PS4 or Wii U. Thanks for the response!

I'd pick up a Wii U and a PS3 w/ PS2 compatibility. That way, I could spend more money on the games I like across multiple systems (Wii U, Wii, PS3, PS2, PS1, plus downloads of most other systems) without spending a fortune on hardware.

I'll probably just go in a corner and cry considering I have a gaming PC, and like 15 different consoles.

Maybe i should think about doing a Home Alone, and booby trap my apartment.

This isn't a hypothetical, it's going to happen. By booby trapping your apartment you are only setting yourself up for a terrible incident. Paint cans tied to a rope? Whoops swung those right into the PS3. Tacks on the floor? Robber steps on one, stumbles, and falls onto your Wii U. Toss some bricks off the roof at some theives? Rebounds and smashes through your window onto your 360. It's not a matter of when, just how.

But yeah 15 consoles, ouch that'd be tough to swallow.

I'd go punch a small child then curl up in the fetal position and cry.
