Hi, so some of you may have wondered (maybe, I can't read your thoughts) why I haven't posted a collection thread in a few years. The reason is because, until just recently, my collection was spread across 2 locations. Now I finally have most of it together. So I took some pictures of my setup and collection. Except where noted, everything is NTSC-U. Due to the way the forum scales images, some of the pictures look really long. There's nothing I can do about that. First we have a shot of my dual-monitor retro gaming setup. On the left is my LaCie 22 Electron IV Blue PC monitor. I use it for Dreamcast and occasionally Gamecube and Wii games. Basically 480p stuff. The Sony PVM-20M2MDU to the right is for 240p and 480i stuff, so most retro consoles. Underneath the two monitors there's my Dreamcast on the left and my Wii to the right. Underneath that, you can see my arcade supergun - more on that later. To the right of the monitors you can see my Genesis, my Saturn (NTSC-J), my SNES (Jr.), and my N64 (RGB-modded). All of these consoles use RGB (or RGBHV) except for the Wii, which uses component. Here's another shot of my 2 monitors. Here are all my other consoles that aren't currently connected to anything. I have a few more at home, but these are most of them. From left to right, top to bottom, they are: Saturn, Genesis (2) with 32X, Gamecube with Game Boy Player, PS2, Dreamcast, Super Famicom, Victor Wondermega, Sega CD (1), and of course, who could forget the PlayStation 64. Here's my collection shelf (for lack of a better term). I just bought the shelf the other day and assembled it myself. I had to attach it to a stud in the wall because it was leaning slightly, but it's very stable now and it looks great. These are all of my boxed games - I estimate there's somewhere around 233 of them. I have a bunch of loose carts too, but I'll get to that later. The problem I now face is that this thing is almost completely full. I knew that was possible, but I was still a little surprised. So if I plan to buy any new games in the future, I'll probably need another shelf. Here's a downscaled version of my shelf, so you can see the whole thing. Here's a closeup of my Gamecube games. Wii games Wii games (continued) and Game Boy Player disc Dreamcast games (NTSC-U, NTSC-J, and PAL) PlayStation games PlayStation games (cont.) Saturn games (NTSC-U and NTSC-J) and one Genesis game Genesis games (Original) Xbox games PS3 games 360 games 360 games (cont.) PS2 games (NTSC-U and NTSC-J) Here I have all of my carts - Genesis, Mega Drive, N64, SNES, Super Famicom, and 32X carts. I think there's about 89 of them. Most of them are loose, although as you saw earlier, I have a few Genesis and 32X boxes. As you can see, they're all just lying in these 2 cardboard boxes, in a disorganized fashion. Far from ideal - I've been looking for a better solution, but haven't found anything yet. Anyway, at the moment it does its job. I have a ton of controllers - way too many to show here, but I thought I'd share just a few of my favorite ones. The 2 guns on the left are the Virtua Gun (black, Saturn) and the GunCon 2 (orange, PS2). To the right you can see my Japanese Saturn pad, my Horipad Mini 64 (or whatever you want to call it) and my Wavebird. These are some of the more obscure controllers I own, though the Saturn controller is pretty common - I just like it a lot. These are all great controllers. Now I'll move on to my arcade stuff. Here's my Virtua Fighter 3 (Sega Model 3) motherboard. It's the complete system - CPU board, Video board, and ROM board. I've been wanting one of these ever since I saw one in the arcade in '96-97. They're not easy (or cheap) to come by in the US. The power supply to the right is a Sanwa JVS PSU (also not easy or cheap to come by). It was designed for JVS-compatible systems like the Naomi, but it's compatible with the Sega Model 3 as well. I just had to rewire it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get it to work yet. When I boot up the system, I get sound, but a black screen. I can tell from the sound that the game is running normally, so I know it's getting power. But the screen is black - well, almost black. If you look really hard, you can just barely make out the words "PRESS START BUTTON". So, needless to say, this is a bit of a disappointment to me. But I haven't given up on it yet. Here's my arcade supergun, with a MVS inside. It has a Vogatek supergun connected to it, which has 2 Genesis ports and a SCART video output, which goes to my PVM. The PSU and the fan are built into the box. The MVS can be easily removed and replaced with other boards. Here's my measly MVS collection. For those of you who can't read badly torn Japanese, the top one is Metal Slug. (メタルスラッグ) Here's my ST-V board with Die Hard Arcade. Quite an interesting system, and it seems the RGB video quality is slightly better than a Saturn, although the two are identical in almost every other way (and the cartridges, of course). Well, that's all I'm going to show you guys today. The systems I haven't shown are the Xbox, NES, PC Engine, and 2 additional PS1s. I also have a few NES games that I didn't show. So I hope you enjoyed my pictures and commentary. Please let me know what you think of it all. EDIT: One thing I forgot to mention is that I also have a gaming PC, a PS3, and a 360. I didn't include them because I wanted to focus on retro consoles.
