    Magnavox Odyssey (1972)
    Atari PONG (1975)
    Atari VCS (1977)
    Coleco Telstar Arcade (1978)
    Magnavox Odyssey² (1978)
    Mattel Intellivision (1980)
    Atari 5200 (1982)
    Colecovision (1982)
    Mattel Intellivision II (1982)
    Nintendo Entertainment System (1985)
    Atari 2600 Junior (1986)
    Atari 7800 (1986)
    Sega Master System (1986)
    NEC Turbo Grafx 16 (1989)
    Sega Genesis (1989)
    SNK NEO-GEO (1990)
    Super Nintendo Entertainment System (1991)
    Sega CD for Genesis (1992)
    Atari Jaguar (1993)
    Panasonic 3DO Interactive (1993)
    Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Model 2 (1993)
    SNK NEO-GEO CD (1994)
    Atari Jaguar CD (1995)
    Sony PlayStation (1995)
    Sega Saturn (1995)
    Nintendo 64 (1996)
    Super Nintendo Entertainment (SNES) Model 2 (1997)
    Sega Dreamcast (1999)
    Sony PlayStation 2 (SCPH-5000x) (2000)
    Nintendo GameCube (2001)
    Microsoft X-Box (2001)
    Sony PlayStation 2 (SCPH-70000) (2004)
    Microsoft X-Box 360 (2005)
    Nintendo Wii (2006)


    I'd be interested to hear from anyone else who's into console collecting, whether you are a casual collector or a more serious one. :)

    While stok3d's collection is extensive, it is far from complete. I will say that his collection is more extensive than many, and would love to see pictures, :)

    I just went digging in my attic for some old toys for my nephew, and stumbled across an old plastic LEGO storage box. Inside was a Genesis, two controllers, Sonic 1, 2, and 3, Sonic and Knuckles, but no RF switch. And here I thought it was lost to the sands of time...
    Score. :lol:

    There is an auction ebay for pretty much every console and a ton of games and accessories. Last time I checked it was up to 9000, but he values it at over 14000, pretty cool and even rare stuff.
