    What oldie consoles does everyone own (pre-xbox/dreamcast/ps2/gamecube)? I don't know why but I always find other peoples classic console collections interesting. Personally I own a NES (needs a new cart connector though, damn push down design!), Sega GameGear, Sega MegaDrive, SNES, Saturn and a n64. I've got a backup unit for the SNES and my Saturn is also modded. The Saturn is a slightly more rare version by Victor. Plus I've got a handheld 1970's pinball game called Wildfire (anyone but me old enough to remember it! lol), a c64 in a joystick, Intellivision in a joystick and most of the 5-in-1 arcade sticks.

    I'd really like to get my hands on a PC Engine, a Jaguar, a Lynx and a Nomad.

    I don't own any classic consoles. I always trade up, as there are always alternatives. I don't need to own an N64 because of the Wii's Virtual Console, and emulators. I don't need a PS1 because I own a PS2 (it's backwards compatible), and so on. The only way I'd ever keep a classic console is if the next incarnation of the system's line didn't have backwards compatibility, and if it couldn't be emulated with ease.

    The problem with the VC though is that you're limited to what's released. You can't just pick up a Goldeneye cart and start playing. Don't get me wrong, I think the VC is an awesome idea, but owning the original console offers more flexability. I know alot of people didn't like the N64 pad as well but I find the design really comfortable.

    I'm not really a major fan of SNES emulation. I know everyone says it's perfect but none of the emulators really capture the color palette correctly. If you put a SNES emulator next to a real console running you'll see what I mean.

    The SNES palette has a really bright cartoony feel to it and on PC emulators the palette comes off as more moody. The XBox emulator is even more guilty of it. Plus, and I know alot of people say this is a better thing but I disagree, when it runs at a higher resolution for me it loses the SNES feel of the graphics which were, especially in the platformers, soft and kind of cloudy.

    The Megadrive emulators come off better with regards to the color palette and resolution but they look flat compared to the real machine.

    I dunno, maybe I'm just too fussy!

    Also there's no really good Saturn emulator at the moment, which is my favourite retro machine.

    I've got a Sega Megadrive, Sega Nomad and a Nintendo 64.

    Out of those the N64 still gets a fair workout, whenever my mates come over we play Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Mario Kart and Mario Party.

    NES, SNES, Super Famicom, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega 32X and I think that that is it. None of them are hooked up or get any play
