    Sad, but not surprising.

    I own a PS3 and a PS4. Likely not going to buy another console (including the PS5) for a long, long time.

    Hopefully the PS4 store stays open for as long as the PS3 one did... 15 years?

    I haven't used my PS3 in at least 5-6 years, the last time I used my PS4 Pro was sometime last year around January. And that was after getting it replaced due to overheating. I had it for about year when it started doing that. It took me almost three years to take back, I bought a protection plan on it for 4 years. When I took it back I had 2 days left on it. I used it maybe twice last year. I use my Xbox One S about 4-6 times a month, and when I do it's only for about an hour at a time. I can't play any more or longer than that. I have a Xbox Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and a EA subscription, with those I have around 120 games or so on the console, the console has a 1TB drive and another 5TB external drive. I play maybe 6-8 of those games on a somewhat regular basis. One of the guys I work with plays 8-10 hours on Saturdays and Sundays, each day on a regular basis.

    I've had an XBOX One for about 5-1/2 years now, and haven't had a Sony PSxyz in quite some time.

    Haven't actually played a VIDEO GAME on any kind of "hook it up the TV console" in at least five years. I just use the XBOX One to watch Blu-Ray discs and stream Disney+ / HBO Max / Amazon Prime Video.

    I am a little surprised that the PS3 / PSP stores are even still open at all.

    Does this contribution count much to the thread? I doubt it.
