more retro buys…

Added another Dreamcast to my collection today. This prompted a question from someone:

“But, you already have one?” – Hitch Jackson
“Indeed, but this one is to actually play with… :)” – said I

 It’s true that I have a number of the same machines in my collection, all in varying states. I have boxed versions that have never seen the light of day, other versions that were probably my original machines and then I have the versions that I can actually use and play with, get dirty, snap pads and spill coffee over. Every collector is this insane, right?  🙂

Here’s the new girl with 6 games and all delivered for under £30… 
I’m so looking forward to playing MSR again!

    My boxed consoles also stay stored away, all neat and tidy, I buy odd consoles on and off with no box etc just to play 😉 so you’re definitely not the only one! In fact, I’m needing to find a PS1 at the moment, just acquired some PS1 games and don’t have mine anymore to test them on!

    Great post 🙂

      Cheers James, nice to know I’m not the only one 🙂
      Do you have a PS3? if so then it will play PS1 games. I probably play more PS1 games on my PS3 than PS3 games!
      If not then happy hunting! 🙂

        Unfortunately I don’t which is a shame! Only modern console I own is a Wii and it generally gathers more dust than my NES. I’ll be hitting a few car boots when spring comes around so hoping to pick one up then 🙂

    All I can say is, your wallet is bigger than your common sense :p

    Saying that, I am looking for a 32x at this very moment….

      My lack of common sense will pay off a mighty chunk of my mortgage when I’m 55, thus enabling me to spend long hours walking on a beach getting bored, rather than driving a desk to my death 🙂
