There are a few things I learned from this experience. One, don't swear that you'll never buy a game system, because when you actually do, your amused friends will be quick to remind you of your broken vow. Two, try not to pick sides in a pissing match between two competing brands. They're big corporations; they can take care of themselves. (Well, maybe not Sega, judging from what happened with the Saturn and Dreamcast years later.) Third, personal preferences are fine, but try not to be a jerk about it, and don't let your biases keep you from playing what you like, no matter where you happen to find it.
