    I've never re-bought a system before, and hopefully I won't have to in the future.

    I bought a new Wii a few weeks ago just so I could play Skyward Sword.

    I think my original lasted about a year and a half, I can't remember what actually happened to it though.

    And although I was over the 1 year warranty, Sony still replaced my system

    Xbox 360 after it YROD, had it for a few years not sure, then after Fable 2 I realized I disliked the system so I gave it to a friend.

    Only reason I would want one now is Halo Anniversary and Forza 4

    Fortunately I've never had to re-buy a system and hopefully won't ever have to.

    Bought an Xbox 360 mid November just so I can get my hands on Gears of War 3 and a few other exclusives like Splinter Cell and Alan Wake.

    The only time I had to re-buy a system was with the original Nintendo Game Boy. Had to do that twice. This happened in the span of the first couple years I had it. I still have the third one somewhere, and it worked the last time I checked it. Not bad for a 20 year old handheld.

    PS2 because of disc reading issues... 2 xbox 360s until i said fuck it... and hopefully never have to get a new ps3 or psp
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Currently on my 3rd system (WTF) my 1st one went out with in a yr 40gig eye stopped readying my disc. My 2nd one was a 80 gig and got the yellow lite of death =/ (Wtf) and currently on my 3rd ps3 slim 120gig. Had this system for 2 yrs and counting ^^. Currently running out of memory and hadnt decided if im going to buy a custom hard drive 500 gig or just buy a whole new system. I have read on the threads here that once you get a custom hard drive expect more lock ups and freezing Grrrrrr.

    I had my old 80 gig start to stop reading blu-rays so I went out and bought a new system before that one died. That was the only one of my playstations that I actually needed to replace. This was also about 3 years after the systems release

    my first PS1 i had for about 2 years then me and my mate tried to play link up Doom with a third party link cable, big mistake as it blew both our PS1's motors

    i had a Sega Saturn back in the day but eventually gave it to my mate as there were no good games around for it by then (this was before the net was a big thing). i then bought another one a few years back which eventually died and i bought another, which i still have.

    then there was my first PS2 i had for about a year then it started making funny noises and needing to be reset sometimes, so i sold it (but told the buyer the problems) and bought another.

    I got my 80GB PS3 in 2008 and it stopped reading discs in May 2011.

    So I've had it for 2 years which is good. I've had my new one for 6 months since I got it at the end of May. Not bad so far, hoping the slim will last me for 3 years+
