Default So Where Do They Go

All those SuperNES's, Playstations, and even Dreacasts.

Where are they now?

They made millions of these units so are they sitting in a warehouse collecting dust or in people's garages?

And not all of them are in landfills so who has them and where are they now?

I can personally account for 3.42 million of them... the rest are picked up after you no longer need them and are sent to the warehouse for proper dusting.

Thats just the few of the millions made so did they really get dumped into a lan fill?

I heard there was like 500,000 colecovistion boxes that were junked back in 85 and scrapped for the plastic and wires.

My buddy just sold his NES and PS1 collections to buy a XBOX 360. Got a good deal too! Most that still work are at your local "VideoGames Etc."

I have my original SNES and Nomad in my closet, I took apart my NES back in 1993. I have a Saturn that may have recently died. I have an asian Dreamcast. I also have my original copy of Mario Paint.

A lot of my stuff I sold, to Funcoland when they gave you decent money, and to friends.

Just a few notes : I gave a TI994a to a poor friend of mine's brother, gave away all my NES games but one to a friend in 1995 (on I let a friend borrow in 94 (maniac mansion) and he never gave it back but I didn't care because my NES was already taken apart and dead. Sold my ~20 SNES games to a friend back in 1996 for ~$200. Sold a lot of PS1 games to him, and eventually ended up giving him some PS2 and Gamecube games for free.

I play most of the old stuff on emulation now, way better than stuff like my NES, which I took apart because it barely worked after only ~4 years.
