Which one of these retro games consoles did you covet?

Playstation 4? Pah. These are the ones we wanted to get our hands on…

SO SONY HAS announced its next-generation games console, the Playstation 4.

It hasn’t been unveiled yet, but the tech giant showcased elements of the machine’s gameplay features including remote play, advanced graphics capabilities and yadda yadda yadda.

One thing we are certain of: we will NEVER covet the new Playstation like we coveted these things.


Which one were you?

1. You dreamed of owning a Sega Master System:

4. You craved a Commodore 64:


5. You nearly saved up enough for a NES:


6. You begged your parents for a Megadrive:



7. You were jealous of your friend's brother's SNES:


But whoever you are, at least you had one consolation in the end.
