    Nice collection,

    Atari Jaguar isnt that great gamewise but still a cool system and easy to get so you might as well

    I dont think you can upload pics to the museum but you can create albums its an option under the community menu

    ROFL well be careful it can get quite addictive.
    11 systems and 400 games is a pretty good collection, not shabby at all.
    do you use any particular method in your collecting?

    Actually its probably around 550, but I never actually counted. Yes (write this down kiddies!) A. Go to thrift stores, they have no idea what the value of thier stuff is. B. Buy lots (as in "lot of 12 GBA games TURBO RARE!1!1!1!1!") of games off Ebay. You will get a better deal and grow your collection a lot faster.

    thats some really good advice on how to build your collection. only thing i would add is when you start getting too many multiples of something, sell them, which will help you recover money you have spent. note that a lot of times, if you buy games or sysytems in lots, you can pick out what you want and sell the rest and come out ahead.

    ok gonna keep the braggin rights. was setting here looking at stuff as i sort it out into categories and realized i have one item that is extremely rare. i have only seen one other one ever listed on ebay and that was a few years back. its just that i am so use to seeing it that i forgot
    so WHAT is it you sit there pondering while i ramble on?????
    mid 1980's television with a built in nintendo nes system. these were made for hotels and were put in the rooms and games were able to be rented by the hotel guests. i will try to get some pictures of it later today and post them to the museum

    Sounds cool, that just gave me an idea. Somone should take a TV and put nearly every game system in it. Call it the Super System! I'd Buy It.

    good question. but no idea as to what market value it would bring, but i bet it's not in the same range as the championship game
