I decided to try and add some more of my consoles to the picture, so out now are my Dreamcast, far left, and over to the right are the SNES and Wii:

I was going to also have my GameCube out, but since my Wii is one of the models that also works as a GC, it seemed that I could save some space :)

Don't suppose you have an Apple PiPP!N? I've always got my eye open for one but for some unknown reason they never go for sensible money.

Most rare classic Apple HW (excluding very early) has little or no value. (e.g. QuickTake, Newton, eMate etc)

Honestly, I've never seen one turn up on eBay, they are definite unicorn machines.

I'm loving that photo Jon. :dualthumbup:

You've seen how big my 'retro corner' is. Would never cram all that stuff in.

Reminds me; I must pick up a DreamCast before they get to silly money status.

I am extremely lucky to have such a space, I hope you can both get a better space and an inexpensive Dreamcast :)

BTW I have owned the DC from new and still have the original box for it. Shame it's gone a horrible colour!!

Thanks! One day, eh? :D

I also had one that went a horrid shade of '20 yrs of cigar smoke' yellow.

It's all gone now... but I think I still have a boxed keyboard and the mouse somewhere. :shrug:

I have the same, but what is annoying is I gave a friend 'House of the Dead 2', well the disk and lightgun, and I still have the box. I'd like to get that game and lightgun back one day!

It is entirely possible I have been labelling my plugs. You now, for reference...
