That particular version looks a bit nicer than the grey plastic mess Retr0 has

I had great times with a VCR!
I can't say the same about the waste of resources that is the CDi!

It's just so bad.
I considered buying it myself but a brief period of reflection resulted in common sense prevailing.
Pity I didn't have access to this when I bought the PS Move

Yeah it's a much better quality version than mine. Mine only supports composite, that one should support RGB. Also it probably has a much better CD Drive, the one I have was broken when I got it and has the same CD drive as the infamously bad Jaguar CD drive. Luckily it's not too tough to replace with a mcuh better model drive.

The 450 model I have was a dirt cheap version that Phillips brought out around 93-94 I think to desperately compete with the consoles on the market at the time.

I got a Pokewalker yesterday, so my boy now has a complete copy of Soul Silver.
Better look after it, that game is worth a few bob!

It does though! It even makes pictures taken of it look rubbish.

Actually I was going to mention your N64 DD also reminded me of something but couldn't remember what - maybe a pokemon or animal of some sort. All I see is a smiley face looking at me.

Not arcade but definitely retro !! Had these given to me today, sometime its good to be the guy "who collects old crap"

Scope is over 40 years old and still works pretty good !! Multimeters also in good shape.
