So there are currently two threads about yanking old consoles out of the closet/attic/cold storage to recapture old memories and catch up on missed ones... and while I certainly encourage these actions (especially the Walrus's Dreamcast revival), I do have one simple question for the rest of you.
See, I keep all of my systems (new and 'classic') hooked up to my TV at all times.... I honestly don't think I would be using my NES if it wasn't hooked up and ready for instant gratification.
In addition to what's photo'd here, a Nintendo Wii, a Sony PS3 and a Sega Genesis have joined the ranks.
You don't want to see the complicated mess of wires and two layers of system selectors that makes it possible -- the Nielson Family 'tech crew' that came out to attach some new equipment were completely befuddled by my setup. Plus, it takes up a lot of space for something like this.
So, how unusual is my setup? I figure that the number of sysytems I have hooked up is... extreme... but how many of you guys have old systems (even if it's only one or two) out and hooked up at all times?
