I had notice in the past there are different computers, Game consoles & Arcade Machines in Films & TV briefly as they like a cameo role like a famous star.
I give you one example the Craig XMP had a bit part in the film Sneakers were as Robert Redford & Ben Kinsley sat down next to it.
I give you another in Airwolf at the firm's office there was a Commodore64 or VIC 20 was use as a terminal.
Sorry I left arcade out before re-editing.
Let me know are there more cameo appearances( Brief appearances) out there :!:

Afterburner in Red Dwarf
XBox360 (game I don't recognise) in Chuck
Playstation 3 (game I don't care about) in Heroes (which was odd as the PS3 wasn't available in the US at the time the episode was aired)
Playstation 2 (and Timesplitters 2) in Shaun of the Dead
XBox in Eureka

There was an Amiga (1000 I believe) in the War of the Worlds TV series (the second, darker series that had Adrian Paul in it).

On the talk of Amigas - an Amiga 600 appeared on a regular basis in the ITV TV Show 'The Krypton Factor' - If I remember correctly - they used an A600 for the 'flight simulator'

There was an original Atari Pong machine in Soylent Green. Guess they thought it looked all futury like.

I presume you mean Spaced rather than Shaun of the Dead.

Not to mention the bloke always used to drown Lara Croft in Tomb Raider when he was depressed :lol:


Duck Hunt in Boys N' The Hood (though it's not using the Nes zapper, looks like a proper gun) BANG "Yeah, take it off the motherfucking set" :o
