Any other collectors of vintage video game consoles on DaniWeb? Or am I really the only person sad enough to have more than 1000 of the things in my house? My collection has even been loaned to a museum for a special history of video gaming exhibition before now.
To give you an idea of just how dedicated/fantastic/obsessed/sad (delete as appropriate) I am about my collection, I have no less than three examples of the very first home video games console: the Magnavox Odyssey from 1972. All of them are boxed, complete, original and in full working order. I ended up with three as I was offered a second complete and original example for a good price and simply couldn't resist it, and the third is a rare example of a unit sold in the UK (complete with the UK distributor documents, original bill of sale etc) which again the nerd in me could not resist.
Other stuff here ranges from a wheelbarrow-full of Nintendo Game and Watch devices, loads of truly amazing yet bizarre things such as the Vectrex with its vector graphics for example.
Hey, everyone needs a hobby, right?
