    Fucking Nintendo and their million different versions of handhelds. I'll never collect them all, there's BILLIONS!

    nodley Green Nope, my goal is to have everything. I've got the rest of my life to do it.

    I may have just acquired an original Gameboy, a Gameboy colour, and a Vita.

    Just waiting to see their reply.

    nodley Green I got the Vita and GBA SP. I'll post some pics after work tonight.

    nodley Green I just acquired an original Gameboy and a Gameboy colour too! I'm happy as a pig in shit

    DJ JJ Slider The Game Boy is a keeper, in my opinion. I love the thick system casing of the original brick. The actual motherboard was really small in comparison, but the design is also very modular. That's why people still design mods for it. The buttons and switches are also easy to repair, because they don't have flimsy ribbon switches that are loosely attached to the circuit board.

    I'm going to treat myself to a new system once I get home. I'm thinking maybe an Atari Jaguar. Or maybe an original Gameboy. I'll see what's around at a good price. Anything you guys can recommend? It's probably best I go for something that will only get much more expensive faster than the rest, there's so many consoles to buy I need to be sensible.

    It's started again nodley fans.

    I'm picking up a Gameboy Advance in an hour. Bargain at £18 I reckon, comes with a Harry Potter game.

    The list of hardware I don't own is shrinking faster than a todger in cold water.

    nodley Green I tried connecting it by usb to pc but it just said connecting for ages

    rockshard PhD nod - it's hard to tell from that photo but after looking up some comparison pics, I can say it's definitely the original 1000 model psp.

    I've put in a couple of bids for a PSP GO with all that firmware stuff, and a PS VITA. I'm not going higher than my offer but hopefully they accept and my collection begins to grow again.

    rockshard PhD Thanks to custom firmware the PSP Go is just like any other PSP. The main thing differentiating it now is the size. One downside though is that it requires proprietary cables. With normal PSPs you can connect to a PC using any standard mini usb cable.

    Silent Gamer I\'d say the main downside is the lack of a UMD slot.

    4 months ago

    rockshard PhD sort of. Any UMD is available online.. so technically it's not needed. But I can understand why someone would be uncomfortable with getting a game system that requires CFW before they can even play on it. It's nice to be able to use it normally first and then move on to CFW later.

    Picked up my Atari and Speccy! Got loads of boxed games with them too. That\'s it for this month, it\'s started getting real now and costing me money I could spend on \"better\" things such as pram and cot etc. Next payday though I\'ll be back buying more shit.
