To the Genesis and SNES guys, how old are you? I turned 30 this year, I would think 16 is the youngest age (maybe 14) where people even have the ability to buy a console with their own money, and mine was ps2 in 2000 when I was 16 at my first job. Do we really have 38-40 year olds frequenting these boards? Not commenting negatively just curious and more power to 'em if so.

The Genesis came out on my 14th birthday, and I had been working since I was 12. Dish washing in my families restaurant. Payed in cash.
You are hallucinating. Seek help immediately.

The first one that I paid for was the original xbox, but I paid half of it, and the other half my dad paid for me as a birthday present. The first one I paid full price for was a PS3.

For me it was the GameCube, when they lowered the price to 99 dollars. Bought it to play Metroid Prime.

....you sold PSX to get PS 2? Um...what's the point?
PSX was, like, twice as expensive than PS 2 and was able to play PS 2's games just as fine (for a DVD player, that is), dude. :\

um, he's probably talking about the PS1, not that stupid DVR-type PS2 that came out in Japan and sold like six units

a lot of people refer to the original PlayStation as the "PSX"....
not changing this sig until "being an idiot" is a moderation reason

My first one was my Gamecube, I believe. Before that I had bought a Game Boy Color. Most everything after my GCN, I bought myself. Except the Halo 4 360 my girlfriend bought me.

Which is a completely wrong approach and should've been stopped long ago. Only absolute noobs continue on doing that these days.
If you want to describe first PlayStation, you say "PSOne" or simply "PlayStation", not "PSX", because "PSX" is a different thing.
I play these anytime and at any place: "Guitar Freaks" series, "Silent Hill" series, "The King of Fighters" series, X series, DDR.
