What was the first console you bought with your own money?

I'm asking because at age 25, I'm starting to gain a better perspective on just how expensive it most of been my father to purchase these consoles. I'm eyeing to get both consoles, but I want to get the Xbox One first. Many players in their youth typically have their consoles received via birthday or Christmas gifts. So I figured I'd pose this question.

For me, it was the PS3. I really wanted to play MGS4 and Infamous. I made the purchase back in summer of 2009, so it was much more affordable.

I think it was the N64, a Pokemon Stadium bundle. It was fairly late in the console's life cycle, and I had just has a birthday where I got a bunch of cash, so I decided to get one. I think I was 10 or 11 at the time.

The first console I bought at full price was the PS2 in very early 2002. I was 12, and when I heard about GTA3, I started saving my money. It took about 8 months, and the day I finally went to EB to buy it they said they wouldn't have any in stock until the next day...I was heartbroken. I bought GTA 3 anyway (well, my Dad did with my money) and I read the booklet for it about 20 times that night. We went back to the mall the next day and I finally got the console; still my proudest gaming purchase ever.

Xbox 360. My dad bought the original Xbox and GameCube for me as my last consoles. He bought everything before that too. I'm 26 and the Xbox 369 came out during my senior year of high school.

That's a long time ago. Lol
