    Doing my ongoing lifetime of sorting through my collection, I just finished putting all my original NES and Super NES hardware, games and accessories and original games all in one big box, at least that I could find at this moment. This does include clone consoles or multi carts just original classic time hardware. There is still space in this box though because I am pretty sure as I go through the rest of my collection I will Be able to add more to this box.

    There is nothing like getting a new game, sticking the Bluray into the slot and then waiting 40 minutes for the most recent patches. The joy of modern gaming.

    Am I the only one sick and tired of the Flashback consoles? Now we're on 8 GOLD with HD out and it's just more Atari 2600? Ridiculous.
