    First up, gameboy dmg boxed in very good condition. purchased the transferer II + 32M flash card separately. Super easy to use and works like a charm. I can fit about 25-30 games on it. Ive got a dual led backlight kit and some more mod parts coming for the GBDMG here soon.

    So wait, those CF things allow you to put any game on the CF card, plug the card into the Gameboy/NES/whatever cart and play those games through the system just like it was the original game?

    Cool stuff.

    juball, yes. ti calculators got me into programming games, so its my duty to fullfill my dream of owning every model ;)

    fiddy,
    exactly, but its very expensive.. VERY. Much like any custom flash cart. You'd have to be a serious collector or full time gamer to really make it worth it, lol 2GB cards might be overkill but i cant find a 1gig anywhere these days.. bestbuy had em for $12 so i couldnt pass that up.

    Have you considered buying a Virtual Boy, Sega GameGear, or a Coleco Vision yet? Those are all good choices.

    do you have the Sega Nomad? A lot of people don't even know that ever existed (portable system that played Sega Genesis games). I owned one for a while back in the day. Hard to find back then, let alone now probably.

    someday, when I have the room, I'd like to do the same thing you are doing.

    yea i got a virtual boy and gamegear. im looking into a colecovision right now, but i need to do more research on rare models, preferred games and accessories.
    you can look at the rest of my consoles that ive photographed so far here
    Consoles pictures by TorxT3D - Photobucket

    sega nomad, jvc/sega x-eye, sega cdx, and sega master system are on my to buy list.
    but i might have to save those for next year.


    this is my sega collection so far. these are my first 32x and sega saturn that i bought unboxed, that saturn is modded with a mod chip. the sega cd itself plays backup copies straight out of the box, as well as the DC. I need to pull out the magic eraser on them to clean em up.

    Dude nice collection. I'm jealous. :)

    Maybe pick up a Neo Geo, 3DO (Panasonic), Atari 2600 and expand the collection.

    Oh man, I have never known anyone that owns the big ass TI full keyboard calculator. That thing must be the shit. Although that ti89 is probably more powerful.

    EDIT: That drug dealing game for the ti83 is bad ass but it gets really old after a while.

    What'd that NIB NES cost you?
    So you opened it and play games? If so that's awesome...

    The CF cart thing is such a good idea. I'm really jealous of that setup.

    Pretty insane you have a -backup- Saturn. Also wondering what that one costs? If you need any Saturn accessories/games/hardware, I have a few items here still.

    Do you have a TurboGraphx 16? I had a TG16 then later bought a DUO. I wish I had the Duo still, lots of neat games you'd never find on other consoles state-side. The TurboExpress is pretty sweet, too.

    I wish I had a mint condition Atari 2600. That's the console that started me down this dark path. ;)

    how much DO YOU WANT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!????????????

    ive actually got a panasonic 3do FZ10 which is very backup friendly out of the box, but its not boxed up and pretty like your ivwshane. *price check please* :p

    [​IMG]


    i think there were alot of problems with that FZ1 as far as reading cdrs, but ive only read about it from 3rd party experience, not my own. That doesnt mean its not on my to buy list though, because it obviously is.


    dan,
    i bought it last year, cant remember the price, i think it was in the 90's shipped i dont think i went over 100 bucks on it.
    yes its very user friendly and easy to use and scroll through. i got the file listing on the cf card in alphabet folders. If you have any saturn hardware boxed i might be interested. Ive really focused on purchasing and collecting boxed items preferably with all paperwork.

    I do have the turboexpress with tv tuner, you can see it in my console pictures
    and yes, NEC came out with some pretty nifty systems that didnt get much exposure like nintendo and sega.

    [​IMG]


    if you want a 2600 make sure its a sunnyvale boxed with a chess piece image next to the black kid on the front of the box. heavysixers are extremely expensive and rare.

    I've still never played the Jaguar.

    I remember buying my TurboDuo for something like $30 at Fred Meyer. It was a couple years old then, and the box was dusty as could be in clearance, but it was still one of the better consoles around if you had some games. It came with 6 games, too. And they had a bunch of others in clearance for $4. What a great night... :D

    I love this stuff. I could talk about classic consoles for hours.

    BTW you need a CDi too. :)
    [​IMG]

    Probably pretty dang rare these days, especially boxed. I guess you've got a few years to amass your collection still.

    I think these were backwards compatible with the 2600...
    Atari 5200 game system from 1983

    Edit - probably doesn't include the box either.

    Torx: since a bunch of that stuff is from this area, let me know if you ever want me to check out some local consoles for you via Craigslist.

    heck yea, that would be great. and yes, im barely scratching the surface because theres just too many to keep up. Thats another reason why i really have no intention on buy games for any of these systems unless they happen to come with them.

    this day and age, every cartridge based system has a developers community and someone who has created a flash cart for it. The cd based systems are mostly cdr readable out of the box, if not then theres always a little hack or modchip to fix that.

    i just look in the easy bay area for anything? if so, awesome, i got a good connection then. i dont know much about the ataris other than the 2600 so i gotta do plenty of research before delving into that branding of consoles. Each model number had about 10 or 20 different sub models under that, lol.. so it can be daunting and very pricey in the end.

    can you believe theres over 20 different variations of the cdi? philips made a slew and magnavox made a slew. most are rare and very hard to find, but i mean damn.. who would have the time to amass all of them... its crazy The most common is the 910 model and i dont think that reads backups all too well or is very reliable over time, buts its definitely on my tobuy list. The one you posted is a 740.


    **EDIT** is that cdi in your area?
    and i take it you dont have the nec systems either?

    nice suggestions, especially the game axe.

    this is the first time in three years that ive seen the powerpak actually available. so i jumped on it.
    its ALWAYS sold out.. and i mean always to the point where i thought the product was vaporware

    Guess what arrived? Maybe the mortal kombat trilogy up top gave you a hint??
    Sorry for the shoddy picture taking. If you'd like to see some screenies of more games or possibly some video action let me know which game! Aside from the B&W LCD, this little piece of hardware was ahead of its time incorporating touch screen, modem communications, dual game slots, and menuing system. Unfortunately developers couldnt make good use of the hardware nor did anyone give it a real chance. The SDK apparently wasnt widely available or easy to use, combine that with poor marketing you have an instant failure. Simple XBLA type games wouldve been great for this handheld but instead they reached for complicated super extravagant games like doom, MK, etc etc.

    [​IMG]

    Hell, i practically own half the game library already

    Total of 7 games

    Nice piece of hardware complete with stylus, 2 game ports, comm port, contrast, volume, lots of buttons.

    Menu screen, lots to play with out of the box. Shouldnt have bored anyone back in the day

    Cant go wrong with solitaire

    If you have two games inserted, you can choose between the two

    Well I'm fucking jealous. I have a few older consoles but nothing like you have.

    Hell yeah. We had the Sears branded "tele-games" 2600.

    im on a women hiatus right now, fuck em! :p :p


    even the sears models are still rare.
    whats up with the darth vader model? never seen that one before.
    lol james, at the time i was programming for the ti calculators, this system caught my attention as being the most "possible easiest" console to code for. Since then i had always wanted one to build games for.


    LOL $650 my ass!! aint paying that kind of money. id be better off coming across one at a garage sell
    i hate how people are buying up all the good shit on ebay and turning around and selling them quadruple their value.

    like this dirtbag right here, "game squad", he takes all the systems and sells them for rediculous prices as buy it now.

    Grab a Vectrex too if you can find one. My friend owned one and the vector graphics are actually pretty fucking cool.
