Inspired by the Pirates! thread, some fascinating discussion on what people's history of devices and hardware was. Few of us were lucky enough to have all the devices, so most of us miss out on some big hitters in the market over the years (and thankfully get to catch up on them later in life). But, for a trip down memory lane, tell us what your retro hardware history was. Here's mine, and I'm sticking to stuff I or my parents bought new, and not stuff I collected later in life. Order might be off a bit, but this is the best my old man memory can decipher from the brain-logs. * Sega SC-3000 * PC - 386 SX 25 + math co-processor * Sega Master System II * PC - 486 DX 40 * Sega MegaDrive * Super Nintendo + pirate disk copiers (Bung Enterprises Game Doctor, and later a Front FarEast Super Wildcard DX) * PC - Pentium 200 (non-MMX!) * PlayStation 1 * PC - Celeron 300A @450 * PC - Celeron 566 @850 * Nintendo Gameboy Advance * PlayStation 2 (technically second hand, but still when the PS2 was current, and pre-PS3) * PlayStation 3 * PC - AthlonXP something something * Nintendo Wii * Nintendo DS Lite * Xbox 360 And then onto modern stuff that's younger than 10 years. Also want to note the Sega Versus City cabinet with Capcom CPS3 + Third Strike kit my wife bought for me as a surprise present. Holy crap, nothing will ever top that. But that wasn't a new purchase. Heaps of heavy hitters I missed - no Atari, Amiga, C64, NES, Gameboy, N64, Gamecube, Dreamcast, OG XBox (all of these came later in my collecting years). I also kind of dropped out of the PC gaming upgrade treadmill around 2001-ish, when I got a crazy job and responsibility and boring adult things.
