Currently :oops:
3 X PS2
3 X megadrives
2 X Saturns
1 X Dreamcast
4 X Snes
1 X Nes
3 x N64
2 x Gamecubes
1 x Gamegear
3 x GBA

The 3 PS2`s are all set up in various rooms around the house , while a megadrive & the NES are easily accesible, the rest is currently stored in my eldest daughters bedroom which was the loft space until very recently, Im trying to get rid of some of the duplicates on ebay at the moment (see link in profile) But id still like to keep one of each, could come down to a battle of wills with the wife :roll:

I currently only have about 20 consoles. Most of which are hooked up either to my HD telly or my projector. But my dream is to have each generation hooked up to a separate telly and stick them all in one big gaming room :)

*SNES*
*Nintendo 64*
* Gamecube *
* Playstation *
*Playstation 2*
*Dreamcast*
*Master System*
plus my GameBoy SP (Gold Zelda edition, big surprise!) and my DS Lite.

I have all of them out on display/play in one bedroom! my biggest problem though is where the heck to put all my games.....lol
I would like to get some more systems and the only reason i have not bought more is purely because i cannot find Retro stuff locally anymore.

I sold off quite a lot of them over the last couple of years (some of them I never used) so I don't have many. In no particular order:

PS3
Modded Xbox with loads of emulators on it.
2 x DS lites
PSP
N64, the Pokemon Battle Set
PS2 thin which is just for Katamari Damacy
Original Playstation, chipped.
2 x Dreamcasts that I don't really want any more
GBA - Japanese Pokemon Center 'Suicune Blue' model
GB color - US Pikachu model (see a trend here?)
Wii - that gets so little use I almost forgot I had it
Many Atari 2600s in varying states of health
Sega Saturn - Which I love.
Grandstand TV sports with a few carts - endorsed by Kevin Keegan
US NTSC Gamecube

I think that's it at the moment. Oh, I've also got a 48k Spectrum and an old Mac SE.

I did this once but it was a nightmare so many wires all over the place. I had 5 spectrums and the 8 bit comps all hooked up to one tv, 8 bit consoles on one, 16 bit consoles and the Amiga/ST on one etc etc etc. It was great to be easily able to flick from one system to the other. Sadly, this is no more just a few systems linked to one TV. I own approx 50 systems (some doubles). Best fom luck with that one.

Hehe, should be fun if I ever manage it. Here's my plan so far:

2nd Gen with telly from 1978ish
3rd Gen with telly from 1987ish
4th Gen with telly from 1992ish
5th Gen with telly from 1997ish
6th Gen with telly from 2002ish

Gonna try and stick with a telly as close as I can to what the console was originally advertised with. Same with computers so A1200 with a Philips 20" etc.
