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

Technically it was the original PS2, however I only paid for half of it. My mom helped me with the rest lol.

The first console I purchased fully with my own money was my Gamecube, which I gave away about six years ago.

PS3 was the first regular console I purchased with my own, but I did buy my own DSi XL before that. Also,bought a Wii for the wife on the same day as the PS3. Now I have a bunch of consoles. What can I say, it's my hobby.

The original NES with the Zapper and Duck Hunt. That was a long time ago...

I'm surprised so many of you paid for your own consoles at such a young age. I'm 17 and never bought my own. With that being said I'm planning on getting a job this summer and using the money to get a PlayStation 4

I'm almost 30 and still haven't bought one...on the flip side I think I've been given maybe 5 games as gifts my entire life, and I've owned hundreds of games over the years

Sega Saturn in 1998 when I was 14, they were going at a fire sale for $50.

Gameboy color when i was a wee sprout. Had to have been 16 years ago now give or take. Age wise id guess 6-7 so i figure im one of the youngest to buy.
These minor spelling errors were brought to you by an ipad having no real feedback to enable me to know when i mistype and my own laziness.

Game Boy Color, used at Gamestop as a broke teen with no allowance and saved up birthday cash.

Oh, actual console? PS3 on a Black Friday, plus I had a $50 gift card from my birthday that year. Ended up being less than half the regular price, felt like I got away with robbery.

Love Black Friday.

The Sega Genesis, with the original Mortal Kombat. I chose Sega over Super Nintendo just because their games included blood. I was 16 I think.
