Default What consoles do you own?

I'll start it off. Here is my list.

NES, SNES, PS1, XBOX (Modded), Wii

Thinking about selling my NES and SNES as you can download a lot of the older games to the Wii

My System Specs

Default

PS2 & GBA
Used to have a SNES, Coleco Vision and a Vic 20! Wouldn't mind a 360 or Wii actually . Maybe when prices come down a bit more?

Prices on the Wii are pretty good. I paid $270.00 @ Wal-Mart for the Wii for my wife for Christmas and then for $60.00 @ E.B Games I picked up Wii Play which includes the extra remote and 9 games. The Wii Sports consists of Tennis, Baseball, Bowling, Golf and Boxing. The Wii comes with 1 Wii remote and 1 nunchuk. You can pick up another nunchuk for $25.00.

Wii Console (1 remote and Wii Sports (4 games) - $270.00
Wii Play (1 remote and 9 games) - $60.00
Nunchuk - $25.00
Total - $355.00

Not too mention you can download games for the Wii through it's built in wireless connection (wireless internet connection required) for on average 500 points for older games and 1000 points for newer games. You can buy points online through the Wii $10.00 gets you a 1000 points and $20 gets you 2000 points. So say a game like Mario 3 which is 500 points ends up costing you $5.00

No, I don't consider you being a fanboy. NOw if you owned a PS1, PS2, PS3 and a PSP, then I might consider you a fanboy.
