Is the PS2 classed as retro yet  ???

If so I have another addition to my collection...Sony Bravia KDL22PX300 - 22" LCD TV with built in PS2  ;D

A boxed Videomaster/Voltmace Database console - always wanted one as they normally hid in the corner next to the rocking horse poop.... Its a basic console based on the same design as the VC-4000 but was only made for a very short time - most people know Voltmace for joysticks, not consoles.

A boxed Jap HVC-01 (Famicom 2.0) with AV out....Modelled on the US NES2 or visa versa.

A disk drive for a Coleco ADAM ?!?

Found a joystick from an Atari 2600 "Vader" edition at a car boot yesterday - 50p. Almost made the severe case of sunburn i'm enduring feel worth it.

What Ho! Prime,

That's quite a haul. I wish I had friends like :-)
I really fancy a PET or a CBM of some sort. Some of my first programs were written on a Chicklet PET and I don't have one... Yet ;-)


Cheers,

Andy.

Just arrived from Japan: a Sharp CZ-81EB. Not quite sure how to describe it (if you've never seen one before), it's basically a big box in which you can plug expansion boards for the Sharp X1 computers.

Don't even ask about the customs fee and Royal Mail's disgusting charge... I'm still fuming.

Purchased another 72-in-1 Vectrex cart (for £25!) for RCM and also purchased a Trinity interface for the Sam Coupe for a great price! :)
