He owns all three consoles and a 3DS and says the only game coming out before the end of the year that interests him in the least bit is Call of Duty. He says that this is really a bad time to be a gamer.
Your friend may own all 3 consoles and a 3DS, but if that's all he can find to look forward to, especially that of all things, then I don't think he's got much credibility as a gamer. The rest of this year is anything but a bad time to be a gamer. Batman, Dark Souls, Skyrim, SR3, Forza 4, Rage, BF3, Skyward Sword, etc. Now while I'm not looking forward to every single one of those, I would find it hard to believe any gamer wouldn't be looking forward to at least a couple. You may want to tell your friend to sell the consoles and look for a new hobby.

I'd say he's just a really bad gamer. It sounds to me like he's driven more by the physical aspect of having consoles than he is by wanting to make the most of having said consoles by playing the new or unique games that each can offer.
