I still use my 'ol Super Nintendo I got as a kid We also have a couple of PS 1's, broken PS2, a Sega Dreamcast, Original Nintendo, Nintendo 64 and Gamecube. I think that's it and I know where half of those are. I'll have to dig 'em out now, you guys peaked my interest. I'd also be interested in finding some of the old systems now like Atari and Intellivision. I had an Intellivision as a kid and it would be cool to have another.

I still have pong, somewhere. Somewhere is my Atari too. I bought PlayStation a couple years ago to play car race games, it is a hoot, guess that is my favorite.

Atari 2600
Original NES
Super NES

I'd say the NES gets the most playtime.

Slimline Playstation 2. Though I can play pretty much any console up to the N64 on my computer via an emulator.

I have a 2nd Generation PS3, Xbox 360 Elite, N64 and a Wii. One of these days I'll probably pick up an original Nintendo more for nostalgia than anything. Had a ton of fun with that system years ago

Hi Guy's,
I currently have a xbox360 elite in the man cave to a projector, a 360 pro upstairs in the lounge, a PS2 & a N64 in the kids game room.
My original xbox died ages ago and I'll probably get a PS3 when the price drops again. Not in a great rush to get a PS3 as I prefer the 360 for gaming and love xbox live. I also have about 60 HD-DVD's with 2 players so up until recently HD vid has been taken care off.
Obviously going forward a Blu-ray player is needed so as a gamer the PS3 will be the best choice for me (it's game catalogue is getting better as well) but prior to it's recent first price drop it was around NZ$900. It really needs to be about half that to get me onboard.

I couldn't decide if I should answer this question in this forum or the Vintage Gaming Forum, I guess you know which forum I ended up with. At any rate:

Atari Video Pinball - before cartridge games were invented, seven built in games

Atari 2600 - I even have the SuperCharger for it and most of the cassette tape based games

Atari Lynx - essential for business travel

Sega Satrun

Atari Jaguar - got it solely for the VLM, the games are pretty weak

Sony Playstation - only bought driving games for it

Microsoft Xbox

Only the Xbox gets playtime these days. All the others are boxed up and ignored in the garage. Well, except the Jaguar, it too still resides in the living room - for now.

I got into it pretty late, PS1 about 12 years ago,
6 months ago PS3, can't even look at the PS1 now, too blocky and slow.
I don't play all that often, only when I'm REALLY bored, mainly driving games and guitarhero.
One feature I LOVE is connecting PC to tele, to stream movies without recoding.
Project 6.1 tt,Marantz CD-40,CX3400,C-2x,B-2,PM-82,SA-1055,StaxSR-3,411-8A,MS 35Ti.

I had these at one time: Atari 2600, Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis
I have these now Atari 5200, Atari 7800 (plays 2600 games as well), Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast and Xbox360.
Can emulate these on computer: Atari 2600, 5200 & 7800, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64 & also arcade games.

Concerning the Atari 2600 and 7800 you can make a regular Sega Genesis controller work by removing the internal chip and connecting the d pad connections to the proper wires along with one of the buttons (A, B or C) to the proper wire. Makes games like asteroids much easier. Of course if Atari had put the button on the correct side (top right) of the joystick then there would be no need to modify a controller. I suspect the same controller can work for the 7800, but you will need to connect two of the buttons instead of one.

My favorite system is my Xbox360 with water cooling and upgraded power supply which consists of a 600 watt computer power supply and one transistor. I play Halo Reach often.
Main system
Scott LK-72A amp & LT-110 tuner
Garrard Zero 100C turntable
iPod & computer
DIY speakers (upgrading them soon)
