  • First console I owned was the Super Nintendo and paid over £100 to import Street Fighter 2 from the States as it was the only game I planned to play for the rest of my life.

    Although we never owned it, when I was very young my dad used to rent a Vetrex most weekends. It rocked.

    • Vectrex for those who dont know… (I’ll willing to bet no one has heard of this console).

      It was released in November 1982 at a retail price of $199 ($440 compensated for inflation)
      Two peripherals were also available for the Vectrex, a light pen and a 3D imager. (Eat your heart out this gen of console, Vectrex was doing 3D in 1982)

      * CPU : Motorola 68A09 @ 1.5 MHz
      * RAM: 1 KB (two 4-bit 2114 chips)
      * ROM: 8 KB (one 8-bit 2363 chip)

  • First console was an Atari 2600. Space Invaders was the only game that mattered. I still have one and I get it out and hook it up once in a while for my kids and I to play.

  • I had an Atari 2600. E.T. was the best! Lol!

  • I’ve left voicemails. You guys not getting them?

  • D Demitrius Smith (DDSmitty)

    My first console was an Intellivision. My sister spilled orange soda on that thing, and it still worked fine. Many hours of Demon Attack, Pitfall and Tron Deadly Disks were played.
