As someone who had Xenoblade X I would not get it just for that game. It gets boring fast like really boring. It really was sub par from the first game and while it seems cool after first it gets boring a few hours in. As for buy something for a single game I have a rule that if I buy a system it needs at least 4 games I want on it. Which is why I went Xbox One over PS4. As cool as Uncharted 4 looks I can't justify buying it for a single game while the Xbox exclusives interest me much more.

If you count the PSV as a "handheld console" then I initially bought mine because I bought the Oregairu OVA with game and it felt like a waste not to play the game but it was great! I've since bought a few more PS Vita games, all VNs which is kind of silly but they're the only PSV games I like. All anime based, White Album 2, Rozen Maiden...

I'm probably going to end up doing this for the Wii U and Mario Maker. That's months of fun and frustration all wrapped up into a simple gaming bundle.

Maybe you should try the Hyperdimension Neptunia games they are a lot of fun to play; one of my favorite franchises.


Only time I bought a console for a specific games was when I bought a limited edition DSi just to play pokemon Black/White; the games were both fun but I haven't used the DSi ever since I beat the two games.

I also waited till the white version of the PS4 was availabe with Destiny before I bought; I was always going to buy a PS4 so that probably doesn't count.

I thought the Neptunia anime was really silly and dropped it so I never thought of picking up the games. Perhaps they are better in game form.

Oh yeah I wouldn't judge the game based on the anime, most fans of the game don't like the anime. They tried to cram in 3 lengthy games into 1 season and the ending result was notvery good.

Depends on if you think it's worth it i got my wii U just for SSB4 and got my vita for the Project Diva games, i did end up growing my gaming library with different games on both consoles, so who knows maybe you'll get attracted to other games available on the system.

I suggest building a PC just because it's more flexible and you have Steam! Comes out cheap, too.

Honestly I got a 3DS XL just for Paper Mario (Which I hated by the way). At that point in my life, I was well over handheld going but I had enjoyed the previous Paper Mario entries so much that I thought it was worth a system to play the game. Unfortunately I played for about half an hour before taking the game back but since it came with Mario Kart digitally downloaded I played that. I probably wouldn't have kept the system otherwise because I simply didn't care about the games. Fast forward to today and I probably put the most time into my 3DS vs my PS4 and Wii U. I own so many great games for the 3DS that wouldn't have been system sellers so I'm glad that the one game that I deemed a system seller was at least interesting enough to make me invest. Sorry for the huge post!

TL;DR If you buy a system for a single game, you will probably end up buying more games later on and having fun with it in the future.

I did that with my Sega Master System, Sega 32X and 3DO and regretted it every time. Since then I've always made sure I've liked at least 20% of the game library of a system before buying it.

Last year I was out scouting for parts to build myself a new PC since it would be useful for college anyways and any games that i wanted to play that i knew about were on or coming out on PC. But then there was an announcement, and i Immediately went out and got a PS4 specifically so i would be able to play this game. Project Diva X comes out on the 30th of August this Year and it is literally the reason i bought a PS4 instead of building a computer

I mean i've got plenty of games for my PS4 now and i enjoy playing on it, and i don't regret my decision one bit. Plus it allows me to stream my Crunchyroll to my TV and can play all of the Blu-Rays that i own. I use it a lot and i got it for a nice price so yeah, if you know about an exclusive (or multiple) that you want to play i'd say its worth it

I am buying a PS4 when Kingdom Hearts III comes out. Haven't kept up with PS4 news at all so don't really know what else is out for it that I'd be interested in; I just need Kingdom Hearts.

Got a PS3 only for Tales of Xillia, was not disappointed and going to get a PS4 for Persona 5 as well as any Tales games coming out for it

I DID THE EXACT SAME THING WITH MY PS VITA. 8D
KINDRED SPIRITS!

I have a Wii U primarily for Pikmin 3
but I will be picking up Bayonetta 2 and Wind Waker.
But keep in mind that the Nintendo EShop is still active
so Gamecube and NES and Gameboy games will be released there too.
