How old are your current consoles?


Recommended Posts

After the topic asking you how many consoles do you currently have, this time, I thought I'd ask for how long do you own those consoles?


Personally, this is how long I've owned each of my consoles:


  • Game Boy: 20 years (I haven't touched it in quite a while, but I'm assuming it still works).
  • Game Boy Color: 18 years
  • Game Boy Advance: 15 years
  • Playstation One: 14 years
  • GameCube: 12 years
  • Nintendo DS: 8 years
  • Playstation 3: 7 years
  • PSP: 7 years
  • Xbox 360: 6 years
  • Nintendo 3DS: 3 years
  • Playstation 2: 2 years (This is the only console I've ever had two units of. The first unit I got in 2005 - i.e. 11 years ago - but ever since 2010, the disc drive started to become weaker and weaker until it was nigh on impossible to play games on it. I finally sent it for repair with Sony and they just sent me a brand spanking new one, the very latest Slim model).
  • Playstation Vita: My newest baby, only have it since last year.


I also have a gaming computer since 2012, but it can't play anything from the 8th generation.




You can also write any consoles you plan on getting, if you wish to. Personally, I plan on getting a Playstation 4 sometime this year.




How about you guys? How long have you had your consoles for? (Please list them in chronological order to make it easier for us all to read).

GameBoy Advance SP (2006) ~ 10 years old

PS2 Slim (2007) ~ 9 years old

Nintendo DS Lite (2007) ~ 9 years old

PSP-3004 (2010) ~ 6 years old (Action buttons don't work anymore though)

PS Vita (2012) ~ 4 years old

All my consoles except the PSP work perfectly. I plan on getting a PS4 sometime this year, still not sure if I should wait for Neo. The DS and GBA were gifts from family, the rest I bought on my own.

Edit : Finally got a PS4 (Date of purchase : 6th July 2016)

My Sega Megadrive is almost as old as me.. used to be my sister's originally, but I played it more so she let me keep it.  25 years old and it still runs.


Had all my consoles from launch.


Handhelds are a bit more tricky to say.


PS3: Turns 4 this month actually.

PS4: Not even a year old and has an older brother on the way. -_-


Do you mean a younger brother? :P

Ps2: bought it in 2005

Ps3: Came late to the party, february 2012

Ps4: Pending. Planning on getting it when the neo comes out. gGood thing i waited since many games are remasters that i could play on ps3 for a cheaper price( i dont mind graphics or framerates that much) and also the fact games suddenly became $80 here in Canada. By the time Neo cames out, triple A titles will be cheaper :)

Here's my current list of what I still have. Lots of older consoles went to my younger siblings back in the day when I upgraded. :)


DS: 2008

PS2 Slim: early 2009 - replacement for my 2002 PS2.

I did buy an extra DS and PS3 as the originals began to age sometime in there, but can't remember when exactly. I bought a PSP in 2007 but it died a few years ago. :(

Well, here we go:


PS2: Since 2002/3 (14 years). It doesn't really work anymore, as it was a chipped/homebrewed unit - the videogame market was really scarce in Peru in those years (for both consoles and games) and those modified consoles dominated the market back then.


Nintendo GameBoy Advance SP: Since 2005 (12 years). I recieved it on 2005' Christmas. Had a blast playing it, but sadly the battery died and couldn't find a replacement. Nowadays, it's stored somewhere on my house with all it's games. Hopefully I can repair it someday.


Nintendo Wii: Since 2006 (11 years). This one was very special for us, because we bought it almost in the release period, and it was our first "original" console, although it was quite expensive (2100 soles, which converts to ~$500 dollars from today).


PS3 (Slim): Since 2012 (5 years). Definitely one of the most solid consoles I've ever used. 


Nintendo Wii-U: Since 2014 (3 years). The Wii-U was an odd one, the fact that it could play ALL Wii games via Backwards Compatibility made it a guaranteed buy as our original Wii's disc lens malfunctioned and stopped reading game discs.


PS Vita: Since 2014 (3 years). This one isn't actually mine (or ours, for that matter). It belongs to one of my little brothers, who got it as a gift in 2014' Christmas. 


Nintendo 3DS XL: Since 2014 (3 years). This one isn't mine, too. One of my brothers recieved it on 2014' Christmas.


PS4: Since 2015 (2 years). Probably our third most used console (after the Wii and PS3).
