How often do you buy a new console/ handheld?

So I feel like it's every 6 years or so. But doing the math the way TC recommended, it actually comes out every 2.1 years. Crazy!

Not all personally mine, share between my brother, but yeah. I didn't know it was so much O_O

About 1 every 2 years is the average. I just get every Nintendo system as soon as it is released.
