Borrowed my mates for about 6 months

Headhunter, Crazy Taxi (The Offspring), Jet Set Radio, Phantasy Star Online (never played it), Royal Rumble (one of the worst/weirdest wrestling games ever) and that daft boxing game (Ready 2 Rumble?).

It was alright, but no Gamecube.

Got mine on the same day from toys r us in Preston


A very underrated games console and with the VGA interface(about 30 back then) connected to a PC monitor set the graphics to stunning 640 x 480p instead of the normal 320 x 240 IIRC
it was way ahead of its time plus it had all the good arcade games released on it .

Pity it never took off because future DC models would have been nice to see.

still got my Dreamcast and tons of games and my GameCube, which I loved, at my Dad's.

PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4, Wii and WiiU in the house, an original XBOX set up at the missus' mums that I play occasionally (loved Munch's Oddysee) and an Amiga somewhere...

After the Dreamcast I mostly grew out of games despite buying a further ten or so consoles. PC aside, the Switch is the only one I've given any time to.
A man after my own heart buy a bunch of consoles then essentially use them as dust collectors.

Still want a 32X, CD32/CDTV and Jaguar but unlikely considering the outrageous prices on all of them. Hoping one day the retro market will crash and I can sweep up these for a more reasonable price

Still got my Spectrum, N64, PS2, and PS3. All of them work, PS3 is the only one to see recent service though.

So it's a dick swinging contest you want? Consoles I've owned over the years:

Commodore: C64, Amiga 500, CDTV
Sega: Master System, MegaDrive, GameGear, 32x, MegaDrive II + Mega CD, Saturn, Dreamcast
Nintendo: Gameboy color, 3 x NES, Famicom + Disk System, Super Famicom, SNES, Virtual Boy, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, GBA, DS, 3DS, Wii, Switch
SNK: AES, Pocket Color
NEC: PC Engine
Atari: Lynx, Jaguar
Panasonic: 3DO ('twas shit)
Sony: Playstation - I then vowed to never own a Sony console again. Evil.
Microsoft: Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox 360s, Xbox One.

Plus a shit load of emulator handhelds (GP32X, Caanoo, Dingoo etc...)

Bold are the ones I still have. Pretty sure I've missed a few.

Most were sold when I was a broke student Genuinely gutted that I sold the AES. It's the one regret because I got it for a very good price before it was collectable and the prices now mean I'm unlikely to get one again as I only like stuff in mint condition.
