Chris has owned multiple PlayStation consoles.
The Sony PlayStation 2 is a video game console released in the second generation of Sony's PlayStation consoles. Chris had a PlayStation 2 "slimline" model and in comparison to his later PlayStation 3 very little is known about it. The "slimline" model released on 25 November 2004 in North America. The first appearance of Chris's PlayStation 2 is in the Pixelated PS3 video released on 28 November 2006; it is unknown when Chris bought it. The first issue of Sonichu's News Dash had Chris speaking about Sony and the PS2 in derogatory terms, suggesting that at some point between October 2004 (when the slim PS2 was first introduced) and November 2006 (when his PS2 was seen in the Pixelated PS3 video), Chris reversed his opinions on the company. While there is no footage of Chris playing on his PlayStation 2 considering he owned many games on the system he likely played on it. After this video Chris's PlayStation 2 does not appear or is referenced again. It is unknown if it survived the 2014 house fire.

The PlayStation 4 is a video game console created by Sony, originally released in North America on 15 November 2013. It is the best-selling console of the eighth generation of gaming, alongside the HEXbox One (with the Wii U trailing behind in sales but never falling off the market share). At least 109.05 million consoles have been sold by April 2020.
Despite his fanaticism for the system's predecessor (and his tendency to spend hundreds of dollars on games for it), for two years following its release Chris made no indication of wanting to buy the life upgrade upgrade. This was most likely due to his family's health problems (compounded by his run-in with the law) draining him of funds - as evidenced by him repeatedly begging people to give him money/buy him LEGO sets. He did, however, show contempt for its competition - getting banned from his local Walmart for defacing an Xbox One standee - but this was the only thing he had to say about the modern "console wars" (which have been intense enough to be dramatized in South Park, among other places). True to form, though, this would change in February 2016, around his 34th birthday. He also purchased a Wii U sometime later.
The birthday saga
On 1 February 2016, Chris asked for a PS4 and PlayStation Camera on Facebook alongside a slew of specifications - notably, he would later specify a white Destiny bundle. Whomsoever saw fit to waste their hard-earned money on this gift would be "reimbursed" with a $500 voucher for Chris's Etsy shop - Chris naturally believing that his comics, medallions, and amiibo are worth hundreds of dollars. In fact, a $500 voucher would probably allow the donator to buy everything in the shop and still have around $50 in now-useless funds to spare. Having already given extremely specific demands for this "gift", Chris would further elaborate that buying him anything less than the Destiny bundle and camera would reduce the value on the voucher.
On 12 February, Chris uploaded Apologies for offending people, a video that opens with a customarily insincere apology - though he openly states he doesn't understand why anyone would be offended - then reiterates his demands at the end of the video.
Incredibly, 24 February came and went without anyone sending him a PS4 - instead, weens sent Chris worthless gift cards and a losing lottery ticket. A day later, he would upload Update: 2/25/16, another video complaining about this. Bizarrely, Chris appeared to have been so confident that someone would send him an expensive video game console that he became somewhat depressed when they didn't.
However, despite all his whining, it transpired on 5 March 2016 that he had, in fact, obtained a PS4. It was widely held that Chris had just bought it for himself, but Chris credited a "Miss Kagney Lynn Moore from Seattle, Washington" as the ludicrously magnanimous donor. A closer examination of his Facebook page and of the order details showed that, of course, Chris had just bought it himself. The name of the fictional donor could be derived from Kagney Lynn Karter and Kevin Moore, who have appeared in porn films together.
Having spent hundreds of dollars on a toy, Chris began to beg incessantly for donations he did nothing to earn shortly after in many videos.
By October 2019, Chris had ceased regularly playing the PS4 - his PSN account shows that the last trophy earned was in a Hyperdimension Neptunia game. In August 2020, a fan asked about his PS4 activity, to which Chris answered that the "amount of stuff" in the room was a problem for setting up his consoles and that he was more focused on the Dimensional Merge instead.

Chris's PlayStation Portable, in true and honest CWC fashion, is covered with cut-out pictures of Sonichu, Rosechu, Chris himself, and the colors yellow and blue (to match the S-Chu Ball). It was revealed in Chris's Big Night Out (12 June 2009), when the cameraman cleverly revealed it from beneath the re-usable Target bag it was hidden under.
The "decals," if they can even be referred to as such, are not applied directly to the PSP, but rather to an outer protective case, quite possibly to allow for easy switching of collages. This relic is unique, because it is the first of Chris's projects to feature accurate representations of his appearance, rather than his slim n' trim, svelte alter-ego from the comics. Behind Chris there is another decal, part of an overhead view of CWCville. The Sonichu decal is somewhat out of the ordinary, being the original Sonichu from 2000, rather than his updated anime-styled appearance from the post-Sonichu #5 comics.
The PlayStation Vita is the successor to the PSP. Chris got one two days after its American release, on his 30th birthday, 24 February 2012. It also brought his biggest spending splurge for quite some time, as in the weeks after, seventeen new games appeared on his PSN account. This suggests that he spent $470.83 on games alone, and with Vita going for $299.99, Chris spent $770.82 (plus tax) at the very least, proving that, with Bob dead, the tugboat is Chris's to waste as he pleases.
Chris bought (all prices are estimates):
- Army Corps of Hell: $39.99
- Dungeon Hunter: Alliance: $35.99
- Escape Plan: $14.99
- Little Deviants: $29.99
- Lumines Electronic Symphony: $35.99
- ModNation Racers: Road Trip: $29.99
- MotorStorm: RC: $9.99
- Plants vs. Zombies: $14.99
- Rayman Origins: $39.99
- Reality Fighters: $29.99
- Sumioni: $19.99
- Super Stardust Delta: $9.99
- Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack: $7.99
- Touch My Katamari: $29.99
- Uncharted: Golden Abyss: $44.99
- Unit 13: $35.99
- WipEout 2048: $39.99
Of course, Chris may have availed of multibuy discounts, download-only discounts, and probably got one of these games free with the Vita. Against that, it's very likely that he also shelled out for memory card(s), a carry case, DLC, other games that we haven't seen on PSN yet, etc.
