Consoles/peripherals you've never owned?

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!

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.

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

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
Nintendo DS
NES
Super Nintendo
N64
Wii-U
Master System
SEGA 32X*
SEGA Mega CD*
SEGA Nomad**
SEGA Saturn**
SEGA Dreamcast**
Atari 5200
Atari 7800
Atari Jaguar
Philips CD-i
3DO
Neo-Geo
TurboGrafx-16**

*= 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;
Xbox
GameCube
Wii
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

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.

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'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.
