Consoles... Computers and Emulators!

I thought you'd all like to see my list of consoles and computers that I have owned in my time. I was also a huge arcade goer during the 80's and early 90's and spent many pounds on arcade machines. I still own from number 12 upwards.

01. "Pong" Clone machine
02. Sinclair ZX81
03. Amstrad CPC 464
04. Sinclair ZX Spectrum
05. Sega Master System
06. Commodore Amiga 500
07. Amstrad CPC 6128+
08. Sega Megadrive
09. Commodore Amiga 1200
10. Super Nintendo
11. AMD Athlon 750 PC.
12. Sony Playstation
13. AMD 64 3500+ PC
14. Sony Playstation 2
15. Sega Dreamcast
16. Nintendo Gameboy Advance
17. Sony Playstation 3
18. Nintendo DS
19. Nintendo Wii
20. Tons of emulators to play everything from 1-10 and alot lot more!

During the 8-bit era of the 1980's I had alot of access to the Vic20 and Commodore 64 machines also, but never owned either of them. Through the joys of emulation, I can now enjoy the machines I missed out on, and the machines I didn't own. Oh the wonders of modern technology! I'm particularly enjoying numerous versions of Phonix at the moment on various formats.

On Friday (25th January 2008) I bought a Nintendo Wii which is on the big TV downstairs. So far it's been fun! I had a few games with it, but will trade those in in time and get the new Mario Galaxy game. Also playing alot of the new Nintendo DS Lite that I got for nothing off a mate! Gee! I'd have never thought I was a Nintendo freak!

:) See you soon!
