Depends on when you ask me. If you asked today, it'd be my Xbox 360. 6 months ago was my psp, and before that was my original XBox. I have a PS2, but I haven't even plugged it in in 2 or 3 months now.

Also, I'm not really interested in PS3. It's gonna be way too expensive for me. I really had to scrounge to get $400 together to get my X360, and the 5-600 the PS3 is gonna cost is way too much. I am interested in Nintendo's Revolution though, which would be the first Nintendo system to interest me since the SNES.

I think sony are trying to follow the orignal market and are now moving more away from a "games" console, and are going more for full blown media centre, the things are ridiculously fast, the cell core CPUs make the 360s powerpc chip look like an old 1ghz duron.

But even still a console cant come close to a good PC, even the 360 the brand new super console is only "as good as" in games as my box and its like 10 months old and was built on a budget.

I like the classic consoles like Nintendo 64, NES, and Sega Genesis. The original Gameboy Color is awesome too.

First favorite would have to be this beautiful machine humming right here in front of me, yes, my PC. PC games are just amazing, more amazing then console because of the level of customization we have (or can make :whistling: )

Second, I found the original Nintendo, yes Nintendo, not Super, I'm talkin' ole' school here. Two controllers, the gun, Super Mario Brothers, Duck Hunt, and John Elway's Quarterback. The only problem? I can't get it to work, the light just blinks red at me :blink: (any ideas?) But that would be my second favorite.

Then the XBox, my friend and I still play Halo regularly as well as the Burnout series.

My favourite gaming system has to be the PC. The PC is just far superior platform when it comes to playing games such as FPS, RPG and RTS.

My second favourite would be the Sega MegaDrive (Genesis) i've had some great times on that. You can't be a bit of good old Sonic.

There are a couple things you can try. First would be opening it up and thoroughly cleaning the contacts on the connector using plain old rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't work, try putting something in the opening for the cartridge between the cartridge and the top of the case, pushing the cartridge down. This helps the cartridge make contact with an EXTREMELY worn out connector. If those fail, you can always go to eBay and get another one.
