Changes in the Hardware park

I give away two of my Amiga at the HomeCon 6. First of all a Amiga 2000. I bought the machine from a college some 5-6 years ago. It was a Amiga with 2 Disks drives, and it served since then as my main Kick Off maschine. The maschine was really great. It could play Kick off without any problems, what else you wanted to have.

The machine itself is ugly, it feels like a PC and beside the big Amiga Label, it looks like a PC. So finally I came to the decision, to play with my other Amigas and gave this one away.

I also gave  away my A500. I never wanted to buy it, but when I bought my A1200, the seller gave no power supply away with the A1200, so I had to buy a A500 as well only for the power supply. The machine also served well during the Kick Off German championship 2006, that’s why it had a Kick Off label.

Beside the A600 I bought last week, I got more new machines I planed before at the HomeCon 6. First I changed a Coleco steering wheel for the colecovision against a Interton VC4000 console, only that Hessi could finally get rid of it. But it’s the only German gamin console ever produced (maybe the new OpenPandora could count as Number 2), and it looks good on top of my shoes board.

Before I went to the HomeCon, I went to my neighbor  to get the Boxes of the A600 and 1084S monitor I bought last week. There I found a Sega Saturn, with US power supply and no game (beside a Dreamcast one) and no controllers.

Finally in exchange for the A2000 and some extra money I  got a Atari 5200 with some :-) extras. I always wanted to have a 5200, so I’m really happy to have it. Next I need some time to get into the system.
