My home consoles & handhelds collection
« on: January 08, 2016, 09:30:10 AM »
Thought I would share my gaming collection for home consoles, computers, and handhelds with the group.

These are old pictures but the only thing that has changed is I have added more and it looks clustered, so these pictures look better.



Spares and Doubles




My ZX Spectrum+




my collection is currently at

1473 Games
72 Consoles, Handhelds, and Retro Computers (total)

Excellent choices sir. For the XE may I suggest the XEGS ? IMHO the coolest of the XE series with it's separated keyboard and awesome design :)

But seriously.......very impressive collection !!!!  :spaceace:

bought this on christmas eve and it just got here yesterday.

FM Towns Marty, listed as broken. Got it for $122.50+$67 shipping


Opened it up and found the door sensor broken.


Taped the sensor down and it read a audio cd, later tested free software collection vol2, splatterhouse, and muscle bomber all loaded fine.


tested a floppy diskette and it sounded really loud, removed the drive and found broken belt. WIll be replacing that next.


Now to find a controller

What in gods name is this?

I just googled it, first 32 Bit home console, interesting. But my first thought was: what the hell, over 100 bucks for a broken unit? Wow!

Congrats with the purchase!

Cool stuff, never heard of these before. :D
Seems like they released tons of games for this system:

I spotted Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, that one rocks! ;D
