    Default What consoles do you have more than one of, and why?

    What video game systems do you have more than 1 of, and why? For example, I have two SNES systems. I have two, no actually 3 Genny's. I have 2 32X systems. I have 2 Playstation systems.


    The reason that I have these multiple systems, is because I have them hooked up in different rooms of the house. I typically prefer to play my systems on my RGB monitor whenever possible. But when the kids go to sleep, I can only really use the main living room TV. So I usually have some extra systems hooked up to that one.

    I had a extra Sega Saturn, but I sold it in a package with a bunch of games. I want to get another extra Sega Saturn soon, just cause they do come in handy to have two of them.


    Any system that you can get for $19.99 or less, it's nice to have more than one, just for convience sake.

    I have 5 Megadrive systems.
    The reason is that the local thrift sells them with the games.
    So to get any games I need I'm basically forced to buy another MD.
    But for $10 with 20+ games I'm not complaining.
    Those games would cost $2.50 lose

    I also picked up a 2nd saturn becasue it was a model 1 (I only had a model 2)
    (and it was only $10 )

    I bought a used N64 but it had some cracks on its case so I tried to find a new one. The only model I found was a Pikachu N64, so I bought it too.
    I will buy another one. The last non-portable cartridge based console is a piece of history.
    Eventually I will buy some extra Saturns and DCs, including Japanese and European ones. Its always a good idea to have some reserves, just in case.

    I only have 1 double of a system. It is the Atari 2600 4 switch wood grain model. Thats only cause I have not gotten around to selling it.

    Now if you include different models of the same system thats a different story.

    I have 3 NES systems. I bought a Playstation with all hookups and 2 controllers and in the box was 2 nintendos with 1 set of hookups, an action set cardboard box, 4 controllers, and 2 games all for $20 so i couldnt pass it up. I cleaned them up and all three systems work.

    Some C64s... breadbin, SX64, version 1, MAX, GS etc... collecting really. I had two SX64s until recently, and currently have a GS spare if anyone is interested.

    Now have 2 NGPCs (link time!) and 2 GBAs, but one of everything else.

    I've got three NES systems, one of them flickering WAY too much, another burned out (which I opened up to see the insides) and one for playing. Three or four Genny systems, at least two Genny 2s and a 3 (don't know what happened to my model 1). And two Playstations, one for use and another for back-up (plus my sister didn't want it anymore).

    Let's see... I have my original Master System, because I love it, I have my backup (daily use) Master system modded with a "Mark III mode" switch, I have another SMS1 all cozy in it's original box, I have a SMS 2 because I like to have major system variations (that, and it'll play the Codemasters games,and a few Tec Toy titles that won't work in a SMS 1), I have my Power Base converter because it let's me make my Genesis BETTER!.. and let's me play the Newzealand story, I have a Maste Gear converter because it makes my SMS games portable, and I have a Mark III because it the FM add-on and can play games not released outside japan (and SG-1000 games).

    I've got 5 Intellivisions.. INTV I x 2, Bandai, INTV II, Sears...
    I've got at least 5 Atari 2600s too... various ones, but no Heavy Sixer.

    I move around enough, and my collection stays at my parents place right now. Rather than bringing a heavy console with me, I usually just pick one up at a thrift store. I can't bring myself to selling them, so I usually just ship them home when I'm done.

    Plus, backups are always good for the future!

    break it down!

    SNES 4 (3 model 1, 1 model 2) pending a SFC
    Genesis 4 (model 1, model 2, xeye, nomad) pending model 1 w/SEGACD
    PSX 3 (two with the "gameshark port" 1 without)
    Saturn 2 (model 1, model 2)
    NGPC 2 (jp and NA both silvers)
    DC 2
    GBA 3 (one afterburned, one TV adapter'd one SP)

    reasoning...I don't like trudging machines between my room and the living room (32 inch TV)

    as for the handhelds
    just wanted two ngpc so I can trade cards in Card Clash

    - PSX 2 (my original, plus a Launch day one I got for free and fixed. Swap Imports!)
    - TG16 4, 2 CDs, 1 Duo (two duos if you count my TG 3.0 card =) )
    - NES 3 (two to sell off...eventually)
    - InTV 1, 2, 3

    And...I think that's it...for duplicates

    I have 13 NES systems (all front loading). I bought them each with games, thats why I have so many.

    I also have 3 SNES systems (2 regular, 1 2nd version). Again, all came with games when I bought them... But I would have bought the 2nd version one without games, but since it came with about 5 RPGs for 10 bucks, I took it all!

    Finally, 2 SMS systems. I bought the second one as a backup unit mainly. No games came with it.

    I narrowed down my Atari 2600 pile by sharing a couple with some friends, so now I'm down to one of each variation (6 yellow, 6 orange, darth vader, 4 switch, Jr.). I have two NES units, one's my old one and the other is my wife's old one. Both blink too bad to play. I also have a stack of Commodore 64's -- in case one breaks I have about four or five spares.

    I have 2 NESs. One is a toaster, the other a toploader, although the toaster almost never works.

    I also have both models of the SNES. I bought the model 2 SNES thinking it was something really rare, since I had never seen one before then.

    I own 2 NES (model 1). Got them both (complete but loose) at once from SlyDC, a zapper gun and several pin connectors (with all this, I should be fine, NES-wise, for a while).

    There were other consoles that I had more than one of (including the SNES), but that was not at the same time.

    The only one that ive got "mutpiles" of are my Game Boy's.. Ive got a GBC an GBA and a GBA sp... I can in theory get rid of the GBC/GBA and be fine with the sp but i just cant get myself to get rid of a system anymore... I woulda had 2 PSX's, but i ended up trading my big 9001 PS for a compact PSOne, instead of buying the PSOne as a second system...
