Not very many I think. In recent years I've only sold my Mega CD, a 32X and a spare Lynx, was not impressed by the Mega CD at all.

My SNES, first time round, though I didn't miss it at the time. Managed to retrieve 90% of my games since.

All of them to a certain degree. The one that hurts most though is the PCE. What an idiot!

I've got so much stuff I should really sell as I've no real inclination to play them (Master System, Jaguar, Atari ST, N64, Turbo Grafx, Gameboy Micro, Neo Geo etc) but I can't help thinking if I sold them I'd get an itch to buy them again.

I've got 3 SNES consoles and 3 Megadrives, and I'd still need some serious arm twisting to let one go.

sold master system, nes, mega drive, snes, playstation, gameboy, game gear and my N64 was stolen. So far I have been able to re collect a few of these and bought a couple cheaper than I got for mine back then. Still need to get master system, nes and game gear.

I have plenty of games i have let go and am now kicking myself - recently too.

Zombie Attack PS2
Gotcha Force GC (paid £1.50 form charity shop and sold it quickly for £35 - played it and didnt like it so kind of dont want it)
Twin Snakes GC - cheap again but it'll cost me a packet to replace now.
Granstream Saga PS1 - got a sealed one from charity shop about 10 years ago - sold it for about £15
Wonderswan wrestling game - sealed - along with above title im sure they had come from local indie games store.

many more besides - these are just the tip of a sad iceberg of game buying and selling.

The only one I wish I hadn't sold (one of the few I've actually got rid of at all tbh) was my SNES.

But its ok, as I picked up a really nice clean one from a lass at a car boot sale for a tenner or so.

Biggest regret really is downsizing when I left my wife - could have stored it if id been a bit more astute.

Sold all my PSP , Nes , Snes , GameGear and Videopac stuff when maybe i could have survived without selling.
Meh.

Havent found a nes since,luckily my PSP collection is growing again but still kicking myself for getting rid of the snes + games.

When the PS1 came out I knew I had to have one. In the first week it came out I took my SNES and Megadrive collection (mint machines plus about 30 odd games for both) down to a Cash Converters type shop where they gave me peanuts for the lot. It really didn't help reduce the £286 I paid for the PlayStation.

I loved it but it didn't take long for me to really miss those old machines... :(
