The last console I owned was a Sega Dreamcast. If there's any temptation to get a new Console it would have to be to get an XBOX 360. But I suppose I'm too deep into playing older console games on emulators, some old favorite arcade games in MAME, and other venues, e.g. free sources of gaming.

From what I hear -here and there- is about new games needing patches, or a high-speed internet connection (I'm on DSL, not wifi/broadband -not sure if that would mean beans anyway), having to buy new content (more and more nickel & dime charges to get "premium" content), ....and the last time I messed around with a new console was at Wal-Mart in their electronic section. All I wanted to do was try a game... I had so much trouble navigating in the stupid menu... Maybe that's just for the store display/demo, I dunno... But that really put me off, making me think things have gotten so far ahead and I'm behind the gaming times.




eta: I hope my reply was satisfactory for the information you're wanting to gather.
