Did your multiple consoles ownership start with the 16-bit consoles?

Started with an Atari 2600 and Intellivision.

This is my answer, as well. I've usually had multiple consoles at once, except during the famed SNES/Genesis era. I only had the Genesis then. In retrospect it's pretty weird that I never felt the need to have an SNES.

Last gen was the only time I ever had all the consoles from a generation (unless you count a hand me down playstation. My friends and I pretty much stuck to the N64 )

It was such a waste and took up too much room. Now I only stick to one console. I may miss a few awesome games, but its not a big deal

Yes, for me it started with 16-bit. This is probably because around this time I was 15-16 years old, and I got my first job. So, I had some disposable income to spare.

TC did not have an N64 or a Playstation 1? I'm so sorry.

Been playing since I was given an Atari 2600, but it wasn't until this gen that I had more then 1 console in my home at a time. Each new gen I'd sell my old console in order to pay for the next gen console. Although there were a few stolen and broken consoles in between.

I guess having kids and getting hitched is what it did it because now we have a Wii, WiiU, two 360s, a PS2, a N64, and my old Sega Genesis tucked away.
