As per topic... how many gaming platforms?

For me, it's...

Playstation 2, Xbox, Gamecube, GB Advance SP, and a decent spec PC.

(Also have a SNES, Amiga 1200 and a Game Gear stuffed away in a cupboard)

Just interested to see how big a collection other people have.

Personally I have my PC, Xbox and GBA:SP. All of those are more than enough to keep me a happy gamer.

My roommate has an N64, DC, GameCube and GBA. Neither of us have any Sony consoles, no real need for 'em because they don't have the games we're interested in playing.

I have...well...a LOT of consoles. Here, I'll list them off the ones I can remember, in semi-chronological order:

Intellivision
NES
SNES
Genesis
Sega CD
32X
Gamegear
Gameboy
Gameboy Advance
Sega Saturn
Dreamcast
Playstation (first model)
Playstation 2
Xbox

And of course a decent PC (XP1600, 512 DDR ram, TI4200 128 meg). Oh, plus I'll probably get a Gamecube soon (I already own 2 games for it!). But don't you dare ask me what games I own, I have a few I haven't even taken out of the plastic wrap yet...

I had an Atari of some kind (gone)

then a NES (gone)

then a SNES (gone)

then a N64 and original Gameboy (under bed)

now a couple of decent PCs.

I doubt I'll go back to consoles.

wow....thot i was the only one who spends too much money on this stuff:

2 game boys (1 original, 1 red in color)
game boy color
nintendo
super nintendo
N64
Dreamcast
XBOX
PC

pc is by far my favorite, and what i play the most.....besides, the xbox is technically my step-brothers, and he takes it around a lot, and it isn't home all that much. i LOVED my n64. that was the age where i think consoles pretty much beat the computer out in graphics and games. so many games....mario 64, banjo kazooie, rogue squadron........sigh (nostalgia kicks in)

EDIT: whoops, i got a playstation to add in there.

Colecovision
Sega Master System
Sega Genesis
SNES {let a college buddy borrow it with games and he never returned it} :bleh:
PC

Thought about getting a Playstation but never did since I needed to spend time on college studies. Eventually lost interest in consoles. And now time is spent on other matters like family.
Ever since then its PC all the way. http://sbp777.homestead.com/files/shrug.gif

Someone mentioned a Neo Geo... god I'd have loved one of those. Still would... (I'm a sucker for retro consoles)

I want my Commodore 64 with all the games I used to have (3 floppy disk cases worth). I remember spending many, many, many a happy childhood afternoon on that computer.

Ahh... my childhood memories were of days in front of my sinclair zx spectrum. A whole 48K of memory, but what games... skooldaze, manic miner, jet set willy, the original kevin toms football manager... life (and gaming) were so simple then. :D

Great system if you want arcade perfect but if you dont love fighting games and have alot of money to buy the carts forget about it. The time I had it I only bought two games Samurai Showdown 2 and King of Fighters 94 for $400.......used. When I finally did get rid of was walking NYC China Town and saw alot of games for $90 which normally sell for twice that. I Wanted to kick my self in the face but now I have all of SNK's and Capcoms best arcade perfecto on my pc.:)

i have one question......WHY???? how could you possibly need seven PSX's, or 5 NES's? do you play that many at once? my god, man.....how do you have money left over for, oh, say FOOD? i hope you dont have a septic tank, cause you probably wouldn't be able to afford to have it pumped out, and you'd just have to **** in your backyard!!!

alright, alright.........i'm jealous :D

Ok time to explain... I'm a collector for sure :p And sometimes I get them as payment or boot in a trade. Always great to have an extra in case one goes bad... Just be glad I didn't add the ones that were broken or used for spare parts. It also comes in handy when making your own PSX to PC controller/joystick adapter :)
