Mmmmm....My collection

Atari 2600 - Woody
Atari 2600 smaller plastic
Game & Watch - Donkey Kong (2 screen) (boxed)
Oric 1 48K + printer plotter
Spectrum 48K
Spectrum +2 128 (I think it is as I've got a few spectrum's)
Atari STFM
Atari STE
Commodore 128 (boxed)
Amiga 500
Atari Jaguar (boxed)
Atari Lynx
SNES
N64 + Memory expansion
2x Gamecube - 1x USA & 1x UK PAL inc Game Boy Player (boxed) & freeloader
Game Boy Colour (boxed)
Game Boy Advance (boxed)
Sega Genesis (boxed)
Sega Mega Drive II & Mega CD II
Sega Master System I (boxed)
Sega Game Gear & TV tuner
Sega Saturn & Memory expansion
Sega Dreamcast (boxed)
Sony Playstation 1 x2
Sony PS2 1x original JAP 1000 release machine (boxed) + 1x UK 5000 series machine with 120GB internal HDD (boxed)
Xbox - Soft Modded but standard HDD (boxed) & TFT screen
Sony PS3 60GB (boxed)
Sony PSP modded (boxed)
Nintendo DS (boxed) & R4/M3 Card

I think that's everything without going and checking.

Most of the boxed stuff has been mine from new, others brought second hand or kindly donated (I saved the boxed commodore 128 from a friend who was about to chuck it in a skip!)

Reading that list again sounds really bad.....don't know how the wife puts up with it (at least she likes playing Secret of Mana & Zelda on SNES and all Shining Force games on Mega Drive)

I remember the Xmas when I had just turned 11 and my parents got me the Oric 1......I wanted a spectrum like all my mates!!!

Did I have the micky taken out of me or what.

I learned to program in BASIC on it which go me no-where!!

I really want to go back to my dad's now, get it out storage and see if it still works and what games still loads.....

If it still works I'm happy to bring it to the Open Day but I don't think I can part with it!!!  Sentimental value and all that!

as you know I sold mine, but I keep finding stuff, in the backs of cupboards, behind sofas, in the loft.

I've still got a couple of megadrives I forgot about in a cupboard, I found them today.

I have just a working Acorn Electron.

Sold most of my collection off in the summer of 2005, after taking 5 years to amass it, it took over the house, and I didn't really fancy living in 1 room, also ebay sucks now, it had started to suck then, and I was trading less.

Let me see:

Atari 2600 Jr with rainbow stripe
C64
Amstrad CPC
NES
Gameboy
Gameboy Pocket
SNES
Gameboy Colo(u)r
Sega Multimega (MD/MCD combo) with Master System adapter
Sega Saturn
PS1
Gameboy Advance
Gameboy Advance SP
PS2
XBox (Crystal)
Gamecube with Gameboy Player
Nintendo DS
Wii

I'm thinking of selling my Saturn, as I hear an 8 player version of Bomberman is coming out for the Wii at some point, and I wanted the 10 player for the Saturn, but it's too rare, as are the accessories needed to play it.
Retroman!

@THX1138,
You know me - spares are needed just as much as the machines themselves. Working or not - they can be used for exploded views etc. This goes for any machine to be honest. I would love spares of everything I have!
