    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    Master System, NES, SNES, N64, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox, Xbox 360. The PS3, PS4 & Xbox 360 are hooked-up at the moment.

    Looking to buy an original playstation to replace the one my sister decided to sell and possibly looking at a Retron 5. Also looking to buy an older TV as apparently the zappers don't work on modern screens.

    Xbox 360.

    I do from time to time consider a new box, probably PS-whatever, but every time I think about it it seems to raise more questions than answers about the best choice and I give up, not being able to raise the enthusiasm to bother getting to the bottom of it.

    Just a Wii that the kids use.

    A PC and a Steam Link under the TV cover me for everything else.

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    3DO, PS2, PS3, PS4 Pro, Xbox One X.

    The PS4 Pro is used daily, the Xbox One X a few times a month as is the PS3. The PS2 isn't used that often.

    All except the 3DO are hooked up and in use.

    Also got 2 PSP's that aren't being used.

    Haven't got one, haven't owned one since the PlayStation 2 (always sold my old consoles to fund the new ones).

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    SEGA Megadrive (with MegaCD & Powerbase Converter for Master System stuff)
    SEGA Saturn
    SEGA Dreamcast
    Original XBox (Crystal & Black models)
    N64
    Nintendo 3DS XL
    Nintendo Gamecube
    Nintendo WiiU
    SNES Classic Mini
    PS1, 2 (original & slim), 3 (Slim) & 4 Pro
    Sinclair ZX Vega (original model not the abomination with the screen, it is more a console than computer)

    I have 2 N64, one PAL machine and one JPN NTSC. With the NTSC machine I opened it up and took out the notches in the cartridge port so it now runs any NTSC (NA/JPN) which comes in handy. I managed to get hold of Conkers Bad Fur Day and also the Blockbuster exclusive Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine (released at end of N64 life and even though ready for release never landed in PAL regions), these are repro carts which most cases are the NA NTSC hence having the 2 machines, there is no way I could afford either of those 2 games!

    Also have a decent selection of the old 8 & 16 Bit Computers

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    Saturn, Dreamcast, PS3, Xbox, DS, Switch. Only the Switch and PS3 get any use these days so I'm going to have to start selling some of the older stuff as it just takes up too much space (those Saturn/Dreamcast twinsticks aren't small).

    Re: QOTW: Which games consoles do you own?

    My first console was a Sega Master System (If you discount the old C64 as a PC) and then I've owned pretty much every Nintendo, Sega, Sony and Microsoft box since, even the handhelds, the majority of which are in storage.

    I get some use out of the PS4 when a decent console or Sony exclusive comes out but I mostly game on PC (gotta get use out of this 2080 afterall!).
