I spent a lot of time on Saturday connecting a bunch of game consoles to my living room entertainment system. I wanted all the wires to be hidden so it took a good bit of time. The television is mounted on the wall with all the wires going through the wall to some other components you can't see in the picture. :)

The top tow contains:
XBOX 360 Modern Warfare II Edition
XBOX 360 Elite (XBOX LIVE Banned Edition. LOL!)

The second row down contains:
PS3 80GB Metal Gear Solid Edition
ColecoVision (With A/V Mod and AtariMax USB Flash Cart)

The third row down contains:
Nintendo 64
XBOX Halo Edition with Xecuter Mod
Nintendo Wii

The bottom row contains:
Nintendo Entertainment System (With RetroZone NES PowerPak)
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (With RetroZone SNES PowerPak)
Nintendo GameCube (With GameBoy Player for GB, GBC and GBA Games)

If I had more room I would have also put out the Dreamcast, CD32 and Atari 2600. I guess I'll just have to swap them out every once in a while. :D

Enjoy!

Heather

The modern Warfare II edition comes with the built-in Red Ring of Death already installed?

BTW: no CDTV? Pff...

I haven't had any trouble with the Modern Warfare X360 but the Elite red ringed on me even though I always kept it well ventilated and really didn't have all that many hours of play on it. :mad: Fortunately, I was able to fix it!

I'd love to get a CDTV but they are a difficult to find in the USA. Oh well...

Take care,

Heather

You probably wouldn't like it here... Too many Americans. :p

Marry me? :D
LOL! I'm not ready to marry anyone yet!

@Steve
Thanks for the compliment. I have three nephews and they always love it when their Aunt Heather comes to visit because I've always got all the best toys. :D

Ciao!

LOL! You can't see the pictures on the walls above the two side component towers, but they are two Firefly prints by Jason Palmer.

Serenity%20Frame.jpg


The second one is a limited edition (1000 prints) from the Serenity movie.

Once I get my upstairs office de-cluttered, I'll take a picture of my retro setup. :)

Take care,

Heather

Heather,

Looks great. I also have a similar set up, but I have the classic game systems hooked up to a CRT TV because they look nasty on my LCD. And the LCD is hanging on my wall above the CRT with the newer consoles hooked to that.

I will post pics one day when the room is cleaned up. I have been doing some drywall work and it is a mess right now.

Nathan Fillion is a great guy, well worth meeting if you get the chance. My wife has his autograph somewhere, I don't know where she put it. One of her friends got it from Comicon, and called my wife, so she could talk to Nathan Fillion on the phone. She talked with him for 3 or 4 minutes. I haven't seen her that happy since we got married. *Sigh* I just can't please her as well as the other 'Nathan' can.:LOL:

-Edit- He's on Xbox Live by the way. I don't know his gamertag but he talked about playing in the past on his facebook account.

Great gaming setup! I only have one of those toys in my house. It's just a Wii and my daughter is always using it. I have Amiga games and PC games though. SkydivinGirl, Firefly is great! So is Buffy for that matter. My wife bought me both box sets as gifts because she knows what a huge Joss Whedon fan I am. I don't need to be in line for marriage proposals though as I already got one! ;);)

@SdG

OMFG! Do you mind if I emigrate to the US and come and live with you? ..... with a setup like that, you'll keep any retro computer enthusiast interested. :LOL:

I have noticed, no signs on any Amigas there (no CD32 or CDTV) ... WHY?
