Gamer claims complete console collection
Largest selection ever?
Collectors take things to extreme measures, such is the nature of their interest. Videogame enthusiasts have a similar mentality. Therefore, imagine what happens when the two combine.
While in Valencia last week, I ran into 'Sergiokillo' - as mentioned in my Campus Party roundup - a bloke who has spent a long time building up a painstakingly thorough collection of consoles.
I've heard of badge collectors but...
From old Mattel electronics through to Ataris and Gameboys, you name it, this guy has it.
His hoarding was so impressive, we thought it warranted a story of its own. Have a ganders at Sergiokillo's full console collection and let us know if you think he's missing anything. IMO, he should open his own museum. ®
Yep no CD32 from what I can see.
And given he has a Amstrad 4000GX in there, where's the Commodore 64GS?
I'm sure plenty of others will find some missing consoles too :)
Hamleys once had free Vectrex consoles
I was never lucky enough to have a Vectrex of my own but I remember the excitement as a kid, travelling up to central London on the tube, then playing on the ones in Hamleys.
In the early 80's the Hamley's basement was like an Aladdins cave of electronic wonders. Kids used to spend all day in there with free Vectrex, Atari, Intellivision, Astro Wars, etc. Magic times and far cheaper than going down to Heathrow Airport to play the arcade games there.
So many consoles, but only one controller each.
No Merlin and no Tapwave Zodiac as well as many, many Game and Watch classics.
Wot no Vectrex .... again...
I know it's been mentioned, but when I saw the article, it was the first one that came to mind as a unique console. No I have never owned or seen one, but I did see the advertisements when I had a ZX81, and thought of it instead of the ZX Spectrum I ended up buying.
I would have thought a CD32 would be an obvious one to have. Even rarer was a CD32 I came across, on eBay I think, that looked like rack mount for an arcade machine apparently.
