I don't own any of the consoles, the computer that I built cost me
$5200 -- it's a Ci7 EE build -- and I only buy a few games: RPGs, RTS,
FPS/TPS, MMOs (and also play the F2P MMOs as well), and some games I
get through other means, just like certain esoteric movies from the
past, got to love cinemageddon.  So, yes, I am a Gamer, but not a
console Gamer, although I do plan on buying a console again, I just
don't see the need yet.
