Be thankful that the monstrosity that is JEDWARD will long be a footnote in history before the Nintendo DS ever will! :lol:

Oh, and buy some Professor Layton games. They're sweeeeeeet.

I aspire to own Pitfall 2 for the 2600. Only seems to be going for upwards of £50 though, and I dont aspire to pay that much.

I aspire to play (not own) a Virtual Boy.

As for things I'd love to have, a Neo Geo AES tops the list (in spite of the fact I don't enjoy any of the games that appeared on it!

I think my big want is a Panasonic Q Gamecube. Will treat myself one day :D

I've decided that next year, I will aim to own and try the CD32, Jaguar and Mega CD. I've always wanted to give these systems a go but never gotten around to it for some reason. I've had a look on Youtube and there seems to be quite a few good Jag games that aren't AVP or Tempest 2000.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Amstrad CPC 6128 PLUS. Never seen any about. Whenever I look on ebay nothing. It's weird. I have no idea how much I should be paying either.

Apart from that, I'd like one of these lol

Wouldn't be surprised if Ben Heckendorf was working on something similar...

A PC Engine Duo, I do want Sapphire now for the system but ouch that's bloody expensive!!

More realistically I'd love to get a complete copy of Alien Soldier
Even bootlegs of Sapphire go for £80+ I believe. :lol:

You really want a Duo RX mate - the final revision.
It's a toughie my heart says go for the Duo - I love the design and colour my head says go for the RX. To be honest which ever I can pick up cheapest boxed will decide! I've seen proper copies of Sapphire going for silly money mate, I do know with some inevitability that eventually It'll be road I go down at some point.......

At the top of my list is something quite simple:

A new copy of Tales of Eternia for the PSP. It must be English language, though. I like to know what I'm doing in RPGs.

To think I got a copy when it was first released then traded it in. Oh, the stupidity!

Still after a duo, but the pink hello kitty DC and a spice orange gamecube are always machines I'm interested in!

I'd love to own a Sega Saturn and a copy of Nights Into Dreams, but it's hard to find a boxed version on ebay for a reasonable price (the occasions I've seen a boxed one, the sellers haven't accepted returns in case they turn out to be faulty).

The game looks brilliant but I haven't managed to get a good Saturn emulator working on my PC, and there's no sign of the game ever being release on XBL/PSN, so a hard-opy is my only chance to play it.

I'm thinking about either getting an American/Japanese SNES (or an importer thingy, though I think I'd prefer the system) so I can get Chrono Trigger, a game I have aspired to get for quite some time now, don't want it on the DS because I think games lose something on the smaller screen... Pokemon Blue on my TV! :)
Chazz it up!!!

Would really love a Kingdom Hearts limited edition SP all boxed with the game. I cant justify getting one though since i already have an SP.

Too many games to list, but heres a few:

Parasite eve 1 (need an american ps1 first)
Monsterworld IV
Shadow Tower Abyss (Need a jap PS2)
Panorama Cotton
Kings Field Dark Side Box (Jap PS2 again)
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!
