    Default What game systems are hooked up to your TV right now?

    For my main TV I have my SNES, PS2, and Xbox hooked up. On my CRT I just have the NES hooked up at the moment.

    My PS4 might be my only fully hooked up console at the moment (which sees way more use for watching TV shows than playing games). I had my SNES hooked up to one CRT, but we moved it to another TV when we had a friend over. recently. We then moved it back, but I haven't hooked it up again yet. The consolized MVS and Genesis are with the bigger CRT, but I'm not sure if either are actually plugged in. Got some other systems out and about but definitely aren't hooked up.

    Back in the day, I used to be all about having every one of my systems hooked up and ready to go, but that would just waste electricity, collect dust, and get confusing with so many cables. Now I much prefer to keep things packed away, organized, and clean when not in use.

    Heh - a whole slew:

    PS1
    PS1 (Japanese)
    Sega Genesis/CD (and base converter for SMS)
    Jaguar with CD
    Gamecube (with gameboy player)
    SNES (with converter for famicom/nes/superfamicom)
    Dreamcast
    PCFX
    Saturn
    Laseractive (with all four game pacs - so I can do Turbo and PC Engine games from US and Japan - also Japanese megadrive and sega cd games)

    Plus a few other systems not hooked up.
    When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

    As for what I currently have hooked up, itís most of everything I own between four different displays in two different rooms:

    Living room: 39Ē LED flatscreen with a RetroFreak, PS4, XB1, PS3 Slim, Xbox 360 slim, and Wii-U.

    Bedroom. Hereís where it gets interesting... another flatscreen with a BC fat PS3, extra 360 slim, and a Retron 5 hooked up via HDMI. I also have a 20Ē Sony PVM which handles the original Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, Wii, N64, Super NES, Master System, Dreamcast, Saturn, Genesis w/Sega CD & 32X, Jaguar, and 3DO. And finally, I have a 27Ē Sony Trinitron for the RF-only systems: NES top loader, Atari 2600, ColecoVision, and TurboGrafx.

    Everything is plugged into a power strip and wired into a system selector and is ready to go in seconds! Iíve tried the store it away and hook it up when I feel the urge to play it method, but I found myself never wanting to go through the hassle of setting it up and breaking it back down again. So consequently, I never really got to appreciate having all these systems. So having them all hooked up is the best option for me, but itís not for everyone because it does eat up a lot of space.

    On the main TV in the living room I have the Wii, PS2, and SNES hooked up.

    The CRT in the family room has Genesis, Master System, NES, N64, Dreamcast, Atari 7800, TG16, and Saturn. Everything else like Colecovision and Intellivision is boxed up in the crawlspace for lack of space.

    Only have one TV but what's connected is....

    -PS3 (mainly for DVD viewing-it saw a game last night, but it was just to update Minecraft)

    -Wii (hasn't been turned on in a while)

    -NES & SNES Classic (swap HDMI cable)

    -PC (mainly to play Amazing Frog)

    The kids don't get to play often since school started (virtual school gives a ton of work it seems), but they get to play more than I fo :/

    Xbox One Day One Edition on the main TV, PS2 hooked up to the office TV.

    But that could change in the next minute.

    When things are working right, I have a PS3 and 360 hooked up to my bigger flatscreen and the SNES and PS2 hooked up to the smaller one (it's an older one so no more ultra-pixelated nightmares).
