    On Sunday I went out and purchased a PlayStation 3 to compliment my Xbox 360 and Wii, thus completing my PSWii60 trifecta. This would be the second console trifecta I've completed, the first being last generation with the GameCube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2. So the question is, how many times have you completed the trifecta (or equivalent console generation lineup) in your lifetime?

    I only have a DS, in regards to handheld gaming. Though I suppose this topic could be expanded to include handheld lineups as well, though I consider those a separate entity from the console trifecta.

    I've completed the Trifecta once.

    Gameboy Advance
    Gameboy Color
    Gameboy Pocket
    Gameboy
    Gameboy advance SP
    And GBA Micro

    Granted I didn't have them on release but I have them all now.

    Mm, that isn't really the same thing. That is just having every release of every system, I mean specifically having every core system of that generation. In the case of this and last generation, the console offerings from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.

    Never complete it either.
    I do have a DS and a PSP, but it's just not the same as a trifecta...

    Closest I was, was having a N64 and a PS1.
    And a Sega 16bit and the Super NES.

    But were there even consoles to complete the trifecta for those?

    a Bifecta perhaps ??

    ... but in my case - Never even attempted unless you include having a Gamegear & Gameboy
    My brother on the other hand had Megadrive/Genesis, SNES & Playstation at one time

    I have the last three generations of Trifectas.

    PS3/360/Wii
    PS2/Gamecube/Xbox
    PS1/N64/Dreamcast

    My little brother has the same, except he has a Saturn instead of a Dreamcast.

    I've completed the PS3/Wii/360 trifecta. I'm selling my 360 soon, but I still completed it.
    I also have the DS/PSP combo/thingy (There's not three so it's not really a trifecta).

    i got the Wii-PS3-XBOX 360 trifecta three years ago, now i don't have my 360 cause i got tired of fixin its 3rl last year:)),hopefully I would get the trifecta again this year, if microsoft would release a better 360 slim that would be safer from overheating issues,i was looking forward for the kinect, im really excited for the upcoming 3DS and the PSP2 [​IMG]
