|Like all good stories, this one started off with a Nintendo 64 controller imitation.|
It wasn't a known console though. The big guns of the day included the likes of the PlayStation 1, the Nintendo 64 and the Dreamcast, this was called the 'The Super x88.'
What it was, was 88 retro games bundled into one controller that could plug into your TV via AV cables.
Considering this would be the only type of gaming device I would get for a while, I played this a lot. Its what I blame for my retro gaming addiction, which I'm glad for.
I still have it, and it still works. Although the AV cables are a bit dodge these days but that's a problem that can be easily fixed with a replacements.
Along with the main controller it also came with a secondary controller and a light gun. The light gun is, and has always been next to useless. The second controller is a great addition though as many of the games have mulitplayer. I have many a fond memory of playing this with various people.
|It should also be noted that the secondary controller has fake back triggers. Classy.|
|Duck Hunt! Also note my old style TV. I only use this tellie for retro gaming which I consider fitting.|
I think from that its safe to presume that the amount of these sold were very minimal. One would even go so far to say that its rare, but I doubt anyone would care or pay a huge price for it. In the end its just another Nintendo 64 controller look a like that plays old games. You see plenty of these around.
This particular one has a huge nostalgic appeal to me though. I have plenty of childhood memories of me playing this and I owe it to my retro gaming love.
There are heaps of great games on this thing. I'm not going to bore you by listing them all, but here are some of the ones I played the most:
|F1 Race. This one was particularly awesome for 2 player.|
I still pull this thing out every now and again, its just as fun as the day I received it.
