New interesting game console? I wouldn't call anything out now new or interesting. This generation is pretty long in the tooth, and the Switch is literally just a first generation Nvidia Shield with some bluetooth controllers slapped on the sides.

Are you talking vintage/retro as well? If you want something weird/interesting but available, I think the Sega Saturn and Game Gear are pretty cool.

Honestly if Tp4 were offered an MVS vs that female in the photo.  Tp4 would hesitate reallllly hard.

If the MVS came with some carts too, then the console all the way, Ez choice.

The AES, welll... again, console if it came with Carts.

XBMC eventually evolved into the computer application called Kodi. I loved my modded Xbox consoles, they were a great value for an all-in-one media solution 10+ years ago. These days, you're probably better off even with just some cheap Intel Atom system running Kodi.

How is it modded? Soft mods? TSOP? A chip? Running the stock 8gb hard drive still?

UGHHH I got the PS4 last year because I've had all PS consoles, but man was I heartbroken. The DLCs, the new controller, the "flashier" games (vs. quality/storyline). For me, it was a hard no. Got a gaming PC instead lol

Yeah, the PS4 controller is pretty terrible. It was surprising to me to try one. The original dualshock was better for crying out loud. It seems to me that Sony has been mostly just piggybacking off of that design since they made it. It was the controller to rule them all in the late 90s. It is still usable today, but it had already lost that throne definitively by the time the OG Xbox came out, especially with the s-type controller. M$ has iteratively improved their controllers since while Sony has just added useless gimmicks (besides retrofitting real triggers with the PS3).

I wouldn't know about the rest. Ever since I abandoned Nintendo for good during the GC years, I was lured away from my PS2 mostly by Xbox live and had stuck with Xbox through the 360 years myself. Since then I have gone almost entirely to PC. I would have done so already in high school if I could afford to build a computer. Consoles suck if you can afford something better.
