What all systems do you have connected right now?

I have my Nintendo Wii and regular X-Box always hooked up but with my roommate moving out of the house I decided to turn it into a mini-entertainment room.

I dug out a couple old game boxes out of the cloest and have brought the NES, SNES, and N64 out of retirement. I still have the Dreamcast, Genesis, PSOne and couple other systems boxed up.

So it made me start to wonder how many other people have multiple systems connected right now.

With my family borrowing my PS2, that leaves me at five systems readily available for play right now.

I don't remember if I still have my PS1 or not. I think I got rid of it after I got my PS2. I only have a PS2 and Wii. Both are hooked up to the tv in my computer room (future baby's room). I'm also not sure if I still have an NES --I think I also got rid of that. Oh well... I can just d/l VC games to the Wii.

Not consoles, but I also have a GBA and DS.

I have a 360 and a Dreamcast hooked up.

From time to time, I bust out my NES, but it isn't hooked up at the moment.

PS3 only unless you count my DS since it technically is plugged in right now as it is charging!

360 and XBOX. To be honest the XBOX "gave up the ghost" right after I got the 360 so it was good run.

Wii60 - the only way to go.

I sell my systems to fund new systems so I don't have any lying around just on the off chance I want to play old stuff. I'd rather get as much as I can for them right before the next generation hits.

So theoretically I haven't paid out of pocket for a system since the SNES. That funded the N64 which in turn funded the Gamecube and now the Wii. I got the original Xbox for free with a MSN offer, which with all the games I sold paid for the 360. The remaining Xbox and Gamecube games I sold funded the DS Lite. And when the time comes the Wii and 360 will fund the next generation.

So in the end, I'd much rather get new stuff than have boxes of crap laying around collecting dust.

connected: PS2 and Wii on one tv.
PS1, DC, Sega Gen/CD/32x on other tv (old tv, with just the coax input--hooking up these three and a VCR and a DVD player was a challenge)

Atari 7800 and NES boxed in the garage.

The only system I have sold (Saturn) I wish I had kept. Esp. since resale value is relatively low (that's been my experience). Every now and then I get a kick to replay some older games.

Many would argue that their older crap is better than your new games.

I'm not saying your opinion isn't valid, we should all play what we want to play, but I wouldn't call anyone's stuff crap.

In the living room, Wii and PS2.

In my boy's room, SNES, N64, and Gamecube.

I occassionally break out my Dreamcast to emulate NES, Genesis, and Atari 5200...but for now, it's packed up.

But if they're not being played and haven't been touched in 5-10 years, it doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure that's what Corvin is alluding to.

I have my PS3 hooked up through HDMI in the main rack and I have a separate cabinet with the following all hooked up through a component/s-video switcher.

Nintendo Wii
Xbox
Sega Dreamcast
3DO

I also have a second cabinet with consoles and their hookups ready so I can just take them out and plug them into the TV. These aren't technically hooked up, but are ready to go in minutes.

Sega CDX
SNES
NES
Phillips CD-i

I also have a GameCube with GBA player and a PStwo hooked up in my bedroom.

Is it possible to hook up a N64 and a Dreamcast to a new HDTV? I have them connected up to an old 25 inch tv right now. I will like to upgrade the tv but I didn't know if I would have to do away with the systems.
