if I'm going for memories then launch Playstation, original Xbox from when Xbox live was introduced and a ZX Spectrum.

For modern day thrills a £2k gaming PC with VR setup and racing wheel. Although after spending all that I probably wouldn't be able to afford any games to play on it though

Yours is very well hidden by the console's themselves though so you can't REALLY see it all. Mine isn't a riddle you can plainly see it's a god foresaken mess.

I think if i plugged everything in at once there'd be some sort of electromagnetic connection thing and the whole ball will start levitating and gently revolving

PS1, PS2 and PS4


Just think... If one of them was backwards compatible you'd have space for more.

My PS3 is a launch model BC with PS1 (I think...), never tried it myself.

But I remember the PS3 not being as reliable as the previous consoles so I chose them two instead, I still have my PS2 working flawlessly (sold my PS1 for that PS2).

I had 7 ps1s, i have one left that only plays Driver and a PSOne new in box unused. I have has 2 ps2s the scph39003 on the shelf that was bought in a bundle when GTA3 came out and a superslim new in box never used, i have 3 ps3s the 80gig modded one and slim model on my tv stand and a later slim model the love of my life left behind when he went which although looks just like mine runs very hot and is very loud and i swear the disc mechanism is different.
I'm quite happy with my current set up, PS4, XBO & Gamecube.

Never touch them these days though cause I've bought a gaming PC! Waiting for the Steam Link and Steam Controller offer to come back (hopefully around "thanksgiving"/"Black Friday"/ Christmas) though and I'll be a happy bunny! As much as I love my PC, nothing beats the joy of being able to relax on your sofa and game

You can do that with a PC
PS2
Gamecube
Mini PC with dual 1080ti's

I have the first two atleast

I know but the Steam link is the most suitable option for me but I'm not paying £39.99 for one when they've been £11.99 or circa £35 with the controller thrown in too! I'm holding out for something like that.

I'm currently using KBM set up for most games so cannot do that from the sofa and have a wired XBO controller for any "console type"/ non multiplayer games so that won't get me too far from the base unit either.

Just going to hold out for the Steam Link/Controller offer to come back, unless you know of another suitably streamlined and simple work around?

Ps4 Pro for current console needs
Gaming Rig PC for my RTS needs
N64 for my nostalgia needs

Why 2 PS3's? and a WiiWii?.
I can only have 3? Current set up is PS1 with the grey BIOS, PS1 with the purple BIOS, fat PS2, thin PS2, thin PS2, slim PS3, OG PS4, PS4 Pro and PSVR.

Okay well in that case I'll have PS5, PS6 and PS7 please 😸

Yeah, but some games still wouldn't work. Have you ever seen Wip3out on a PS3?

Region Free, Backup compatible PS One - tick
Nintendo Switch - tick
Gameboy Advance AGB with modified backlight screen - tick

Although I would substitute the GBA with a Gamecube with a Gameboy Player if it had to be 3 consoles.
The PS One is in the living room but connected to a 21 inch Sony Bravia CRT rather than my 4K TV. Those things look so much better with RGB scart on a CRT (I'm not paying £300+ for a framemeister)
Scrabble, kerplunk and buckaroo. I'm useless at games

Why not?


You would only use one at a time in general, Can't see no use for more than one, Some consoles are also backward compatible so again whats the point?.
Does a super computer count?

If so one of those, ps4 pro just for exclusives & the switch

PC will let me play most games emulated
Here's mine, nothing special. Looking at upgrading to a 32'' with built in VCR.

Hmm. Ps4 pro or Xbox one x , killer gaming pc and maybe a switch.

Not one for retro gaming on original consoles. Can just emulate most things and that'll do me.

OCD isn't a cleaning disease. It's an obsessive fear that terrible things are going to happen if you don't perform certain tasks or rituals. Of which cleaning can be one, but isn't always one.

Because even if a console is backwards compatible, it doesn't mean a game will play the same as the original. Much like emulating a game on a PC. Also, backwards compatible doesn't necessarily mean you can use your old discs.
