Now that I think about it. Every new console after the Atari 5200 I received was either a Christmas or birthday gift until the 32-bit era came along. All Atari stuff, less line XEGS and Lynx, were Christmas gifts. Games, too.

I remember having a PlayStation and at least 10 games. Most of those games are considered best on the system now. Where I lived at the time there was a game trading store called Game X Change. I walked in and seen the Jaguar and Lynx stuff and went mental. I went home, gathered up all my PlayStation stuff, and traded it in for a Lynx II, a few games, and the large padded case...plus a power supple and I still had some credit left over. All Lynx stuff was new in the box. I left at Moms house and when she passed her house got ransacked before I could go and retrieve my belongings. They didn't take the Saturn that was there. Go figure.
