Thought this might be an interesting one. So folks here have owned an absolute **** tonne of gaming stuff over the years, but is there anything standout/common/popular you've never owned or maybe never even played?
I've never used a Snes Super Scope. Never even seen one in person. I've heard they're a pile of crap but they still hold this weird mystical thing to me where my only real connection to them is seeing the ad on TV when I was a kid.
I've also never owned a Master System. Had a Power Base Converter on release and also have a Master System Converter II, but never the actual console!
I've never seen a Spectrum 48k computer in the flesh!!
Never got a Power Glove (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Glove) for the NES like they had in The Wizard - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wizard_(1989_film)
Smyths didn't have them in stock at the time down the West
I think at one stage or another I've owned pretty much everything I'd wanted, with the exception of an N64DD The obvious Neo Geo AES goes without saying.
I have had most of them
Never played a Neo Geo.
Played the Atari Jaguar, always wanted one but never had it
Oh or 3do, again played it but was a non runner to buy
Never had or played the Jaguar CD module. I'm sure there must be other things, but that's all I can think of for now.
I really have to get one of those things
There's a blood sugar monitor for the DS that looks cool!
I've never had a 32X or Sega CD. I know they weren't a success and aren't too common either. I kinda want a Sega CD though but at the same time I'm not really arsed.
Consoles I never owned at all;
Nintendo Game Boy/GB Colour
Game Boy Advance
SEGA Mega CD*
*= borderline peripheral as they were really just an expansion of the MD
**= would love to get one
Peripherals I never owned;
Multitap for PS1/PS2
HDD for PS2
Consoles I missed out on as a child, but eventually bought myself as an adult;
Super Famicom (Japanese SNES)
I also had an Atari 2600 but I didn't like it that much (I was born in 89, forgive me)
Oh, and to give some info on the Super Scope to the O.P.
I have one - I got it bundled with my SFamicom and it is such an eyesore, I had to store it in the cupboard. No intention of using it - no intention of looking at it. Takes about 6 AA batteries. Don't get it. It's horrible
I'll take the Super Scope off your hands, give it a good home!
Have had most of what I wanted at some stage, including the Jag CD - awful pos.
Actually wouldn't mind a Pippin or a X68000
They are not great imo.
Have one boxed somewhere, gave it a go about 12 years ago was disappointed with it.
Never meet your hero's
I've a few, maybe three if you really want one, duck hunt was a great shooting game, first one with a bit of sport that I had.
Again I've spares if it ticks a box for you.
Poxy unit. The 48K+ on the other hand is deadly, no spares atm.
I went nuts trying to get a boxed Atari jaguar a few years ago, I kept missing out, have an unboxed one. I know a guy with a Savage jaguar collection, gave me the CD unit and converter back in the 1990's it was great fun
I'd like a boxed one just to look at, again i think if I play it I'll kill the nostalgia
I have had a Speccy 48k and a lousy Specstrad 2+, but I'd love a 48+ or 128+ in my collection.
As Nintendo goes there's an early breakout clone they made that I'd love to have.
A 5200 might be nice, but I really need to get a Nuon back into my life!
I have never owned an AES but I think a consolised MVS would be a better buy for me.
I see something nice someone else gets on the forum and then i must have it
SO i blame all of you, looking at MSXs now and the thousand different models.
I've never had a Commodore 64 and I'd quite like a breadbin version.
I'd quite like the Amstrad Spectrum +2 and +3 to go with my proper Speccys too.
