Not really.
The majority of what I sold I could play on my PSP or my modded xbox.
I know some folk don't do emulation but in some cases I prefer it.
Apart from the convenience of having everything on one machine, the xbox controller
feels better (to me) than most of the original joypads (SNES, SMS, SMD, PC Engine etc.) which
are all too small for me and give me cramp after prolonged use.  ::)

Thats a fair comment bud, to be fair retro gaming comes in many forms. Its what suits you best.

I do a bit of both like you, mainly for storage space.

Tell me about it, I was just on another well known retro forum and was quite disturbed to find that out of 42 topic in the main forum only 18 were actually retro gaming related compare to 24 about modern gaming.

Cheers. That's how it will remain. There is an infinite amount of retro content we could discuss. And we will lol.
