    My PS2, even though everyone had one. Now that was a good piece of tech.

    My N64 since my NES, SNES, and Gameboy (phat) were thrown away (I may still have my phat gameboy, though).

    My SNES. I had my SNES since I was 5 years old and still play it.
    As well it still plays perfectly! Despite the fact that it lived through a fire without a single mark on it.

    Man, Nintendo consoles back then were made to last. I can't really say the same thing about the Wii though...

    My most played system is easily my N64. God, I love it so much.

    My SNES still works, even though the power cord is taped to the unit with a crumbled piece of foil in between the connection so it can transmit electricity. [​IMG]

    I know! Hell even the games were meant to last since I still have the most of the games, other than one.

    My old PC. (7 years)
    Followed by my new PC (4 or so years)

    Not much else. I've played DS for a while, but i've had 2 DSl's and a DSi so they haven't lasted long.
    Used to play my 360 a lot and it's never broken, but it's no where near the playtime of my PC.

    PS1 and down I just play on my PC now.

    I don't know if I can count my PS2 since it's my eighth one (1-6 broke and I sold seven so I could do the swap trick since for years I had been missing disk 2 of FF IX and Disk 1 of FF VIII, and I'm going to purposefully break this one to buy the newest PS2 with my warranty money).

    My Nintendo 64. God, I just absolutely LOVE that system. I'm really enjoying F-Zero X ATM. Fast racing at its best! And when it comes to handhelds, it all goes down to my good old Game Boy Advance SP. I think the 64 might get beaten by my Xbox, though, since I modded it out (300gb HD [​IMG]) and have emulators on there and now have all the games I never got a chance to pick up.

    Try Lukiegames.org, I've shopped there before and they have some great deals! Or if there are some in your area - try Pawn America. You can get systems on the cheap there! (Just picked up a Gamecube for $20 a few weeks ago)

    what do you mean that was a good piece of tech. to date it still is a good piece of tech just ask anyone who still has it or had it

    anyway the longest lasting most played system i have had was originally my Sega Genesis console, and then came my PSX which i got modded but now they sit in my closet collecting dust but now its my DS Lite and my PS2 that i played the shit out of and still while also playing my xbox 360
