    Looking for old retro gaming paraphernalia. Ps1, Sega, Nintendo, Atari etc etc.

    Hi,

    Quite a bit off topic but a little side hobby of mine, while I still have some money left that's not getting spent rebuilding my Corrado, is collecting retro video games and consoles. At the moment i'm looking specifically for PlayStation 1 games to add to a collection I'm building but will consider anything. I know a lot of you guys are of an age where, if you were into gaming, would have played this console and may still have stuff laying about like I did so worth a try.


    All the best,

    Jamie

    I was trying to find my old snes/PS1/PS2 a while ago but seems they have either been sold or binned at some point. I think I've got some PS1 games lying around somewhere as well as xbox 1 (not 'one'.. how confusing!) games, I'll take a look.

    Red 16v gone
    Red VR32.. WIP

    I think I was past computer games when the PS1 came out .. that's how I was able to want a Corrado as a kid .. !

    Past computer games? - I still play them now! LOL!

    Far Cry 5 is a good laugh - I was big into the Xbox hacking scene in the early 2000's - my modded Xbox (CPU/RAM/HDD) currently has 5,000+ retro games on it

    Far Cry 3 is probably the best one for me. Struggled to get into 4 and 5. Yeah I was running modded ps1's back in the day. Playing all sorts of shady games.

    Yeah 3 was very good, I'm kinda tempted by Red Dead Redemption and will definitely by buying The Last Of Us 2 on it's release.

    You can play all the PS1 games on Xbox

    It's surprising the amount of people don't have a clue what happened to their old gaming systems. I have no idea what happened to my original PS1, despite paying £299 for it in 1995. I remeber having to turn it upside down to work properly so was likely on it's way out. Yeah the old PS1/PsOne and Xbox1 and Xbox One conundrum. Apparently, the original PS1 should be referred to as the PSX, despite Sony releasing the completely different PSX, a PS2/Digital video recorder combo in 2002 that nobody bought.

    Too be fair the modern games aren't grabbing my attention the same way they used. They play too much like mainstream hollywood movies, which I find more or less unwatchable these days. I find old games have much more character and play-ability. Xbox's aren't really of any interest to me as I never had one. I was loyal to the PS, and before it was Sega. I almost bought a Saturn on their release but they where like £100 more than the PS and their marketing bought be over as it did what with most people.
