What Does a Guy's Gaming Console Say About Him?

Even if I spot an old Playstation hooked up to a guy's TV, I'm not going to pass judgment—ok, so maybe I'm secretly wishing he had a Wii hiding somewhere. In a recent article by Kotaku, a panel of gamers were asked the tough questions about what a console says about a guy—Now I've got your attention don't I?!

The experts include NY-based psychologist Carl Arinoldo, DeVry University's Ed Magnin, online gaming network CEO Ted Owen and GameTrailers.com's Shane Satterfield. Here's a little fun quiz to help shed some light on guy gamers and their "choice of console." Keep in mind that all answers are personal opinions of the experts.

What does it mean if my boyfriend has a Xbox360, a PS3, AND a Wii?? Those, along with his enormous HDtv, are the biggest time-saps in our relationship.. but i love them all, including the boy :)

PlayStation does not equal PS3... Also, people thinking that owning a 360 means you play well with others is a load... anyone who thinks that has never been on voice chat before or been teabagged.My husband has every system since the Atari... It's one of the reasons I love him

Interesting. I'm a Nintendo person myself, so I already knew that Wii owners are fun!

We're not big on console games, but we play games on the computer. What does that mean? We have two X360's but it's just because he got an x-box for xmas one year and he stuck w/them. They're mostly just used as DVD players.

I like it when I show up to a guy's place and he has old school systems like Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo, or original Nintendo!! That's the only way I can beat him :blush:

Oooh I didn't know you could get old school NES and SNES games on a Wii... great feature! I have a working NES also but I never play it. Actually it could be not working and I wouldn't know. I used to date a guy that was waaay to into games. It's a turn off. I get so sick of watching people die in Halo or all those other 1st person shooter games. That gratuitous violence affects my sensibilities.
