Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Assuming you've bought one at all, you've had a fair amount of time to settle in with your preferred modern console by now. Whether it was cool games, the prospect of cool games or some other features that lured you in, its dashboard might feel like a second home by now, host to many wonderful hours of your favorite games. But what about the box(es) you left on the shelf? What about the consoles that, at one point, didn't have what it takes to earn a spot beneath your TV?

This edition of Stiq Figures is all about second chances, and with the start of deal season in mind, I ask: What would the gaming consoles you don't own need to do before you would consider picking them up? Wanting more 3rd party support, cooler exclusives, more enticing system-wide features or just a different shade of plastic wrapped around its innards – pretty much everything is fair game here.

If your only machine-shaped absence in life is a gaming-capable PC, feel free to explain what would need to change before diving into that experience as well. Since my summer purchase of an Xbox One was my final moment of caving during this console generation though, it's all about you this week. Share what you're looking for from the consoles that have yet to join your home, right after you check this week's Japanese hardware sales after the break!
