As you know me and my friend have this huge collection of Consoles and Games, I thought it would be a cool idea to share with other people all the Console and Games I own.
I did have a Panasonic Q, which is very rare, only released in Japan with only a few thousand made, I managed to get hold of one. I got mine boxed with everything inside for only 230 pounds I think, i have seen other boxed ones go for 660 pounds. But it had an issue. The issue was that whenever I put my Gamecube discs in it and then ejected them, a straight scratch would appear on my dick from the canter out towards the outer rim of the disc. The more I played the game it the worse it got. So now I'm going to try and send it back to the seller where got it from EBay in the first place. When I got the Panasonic Q it came with 4 USA Games, and they had all the same marks, yet he said that he didn't see this marks, that he is "quite Anal about these things." I sent him these images since he asked for proof of my fucked up games.
I have marked in red where the marks on the disc are. [link][link][link][link][link][link][link]
For those who do not know what a Panasonic Q is:
"The Q (SL-GC10-S) is a hybrid version of the Nintendo GameCube with a DVD player manufactured by Panasonic in cooperation with Nintendo. The system was officially released only in Japan. Since the GameCube lacked DVD playback functionality, a feature its competitors had, the system was licensed by Nintendo and was released on December 14, 2001. The Q was first listed at $439 USD, but a modified version that allowed users to play DVDs from all regions was listed at $499 USD.
Nintendo's uncharacteristic decision to license the gaming technology to Panasonic was a result of the deal brokered between Matsushita (owners of the Panasonic brand) and Nintendo. When Nintendo signed Matsushita as the producer of the optical disc drives that power the GameCube, an agreement was struck allowing Matsushita to produce a DVD system with the capability to play GameCube games.
Other features of the Q include a backlit LCD, a front-loading slot disc tray, an optical sound output supporting Dolby Digital 5.1, a separate subwoofer jack, and a stainless steel chassis.
Panasonic announced they were ceasing production of the Q in December 18, 2003 due to low sales. As it is quite possible to obtain a standard GameCube and a standalone DVD player for less than the price of the unit, the Panasonic Q is not a very common purchase except for some serious collectors.
The DVD-ROM drive in the Q is meant to read both video DVDs and Gamecube games. Because of this, the laser used in the drive is better able to read all types of burned or pirated Gamecube games; a burned game that a standard Gamecube refuses to play might be read fine by a Q. However, the Q still requires the installation of a modchip (such as the Qoob Pro or SX) to play burned games." - Taken from [link]
Although, the Panasonic Q is known for the units not to be very reliable. A lot of them screw up over time.
These are the photographs I took of it:[link]

I also got 100 Japanese Sega Saturn games for 130 pounds from Japan, also from EBay. The list is very long, so i tried to take a photograph of all the games.[link]
<--- All 100 games in the box.[link]
<--- Half the games on the floor. [link]
<--- Close up of games on the floor.[link]
<--- Another long shot of games on the floor.
Those games on the floor are only half of what i have in that box. O-O; my floor wasn't big enough to fit them all.
I also got a PS3 60GB model for 25 pounds, it wasn't working so I completely took it a apart, stripped the whole thing and deep cleaned it all, now I have to put it all back together again and see if it works, i hope it works. I might take photographs and make a Tutorial explaining how to take it apart and put it back together if anyone is interested.
