    Default Appreciating Consoles?

    Recently, my interest about the TurboGrafx system got stirred up, so I decided to look at prices on eBay. Yowza! Talk about sticker-shock!

    However, this got me thinking -- which systems are appreciating in value? I know most of the mainstream systems just fall in value until they hit a plateu, and many smaller systems become practically worthless. There are exceptions to the rule, however, and the TurboGrafx/PC Engine seems to be such a case. Which other systems are gaining in value?

    I noticed that the Atari 5200 and the nes have gained some value, as well as the Channel F to a lesser extent.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    Actually the Turbografx and Duo have gone done in prices compared to a few years ago. The Neo Geo also has mostly kept it's value.
