I've got three hooked up to my TV just now; 360, Wii and Ps3. I have a N64 hooked up to the TV in my bedroom. Wish I could find a solution for having more hooked up but

a) it becomes a mess
b) I just don't have the space

Plus, I don't want to seem too geeky...

There's two TVs in my bedroom. Three are hooked up to my "main" one: Wii, PS2 and N64.
The other TV, which is really my brothers, has his 360 hooked up. There's another N64 underneath but it's not hooked up. I guess it's just there for decoration. :lol:

I've got only 2 consoles, and they're both hooked up (although they seem to be better at catching dust these days...): a N64 (naturally :) ) and a PS2.

It's kind of a mess but I manage to have a Super NES, Nintendo 64, GameCube, Wii, and PlayStation all hooked up to my television. The poor little NES is the only one which got packed up and shoved under a table.

GameCube, Wii, PS2 and Xbox 360... in other words, all of my consoles. I'm lucky enough to have a TV with 4 SCART connections and one composite connection, so I can use all my consoles at once. The 360's video cords do dangle from the front of the TV though, since the composite connection is on the front.

Yep. I know what you mean (apart from the geeky part, I can't avoid that!).

I have the N64, the XBox, and the PS2 all connected up to my TV, along with my VHS recorder (which I'm going to replace with a domestic DVD recorder at some point), along with my Sky box. There's also a tangled mess of SCART and power leads, of course (no matter how tidy you leave them, you come back next day and they're always tied together in a mess :o ).

My other console, the Gamecube, is not currently connected up, as I don't have a free SCART socket.

I'd like to use either the XBox or the PS2 as a DVD player, but wear and tear would kill the drive, and so I have a seperate DVD player, which to use I have to connect up, and disconnect the PS2 (a nuisance, but unavoidable at present). I use the XBox to play mp3s, so I don't have a hi-fi system.

Are you aware of boxes like these? I picked up one on sale from Homebase about a mounth ago. They're a bit crude, but they save you having to deconnect/reconnect everytime you want to use a different machine.

I've got one of those, thanks (looks exactly the same one, except mine was from Argos (I think)), but that's only three SCARTs in (the outermost one is my PS2, which I swap for the DVD player when I need to). Next time I buy a TV, I'm really going to consider how many SCART sockets it has.

Geek-dom confirmed. PS3, 360, Wii all hooked up to the projector via connection selector. PS2 & Xbox set-up and ready to swap connections with the afore-mentioned 3 systems. Somehow I now also have a 2nd Wii, :huh: which is hooked up to the LCD. SNES & N64 packed. Tightly. Away.

So I guess that means 4 connected full-time, with an additional 2 in "the queue"...

I was gonna say "you need a Gamecube" but I guess there's no need if you own Wii(z).

If you own a black Wii I will have infinite and equal respect and hate for you. ^_^

Fear (respect/hate) not... as I will more likely have a PS3 slim before a black Wii. :P (and you already know my PS3 slim-gettin' status... only at temptation stage)

Usually just the Wii though occasionally I'll bust out NES/SNES/N64. Looks to cluttered if I have more than two out at a time but I usually put the system back up when I'm done.

These are the consoles I have hooked up and the games I currently have in them.

CRT TV

Nintendo 64: Killer Instinct Gold

Wii: Super Smash Bros. Brawl although I'm actually playing the Project M soft mod.


HDTV

Wii: Yup, I've got two. :-8 This one has Mario Kart Wii for the CTGP Revolution mod.

Wii U: Pokken Tournament

PS4: Has the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition disc in it because I still play Modern Warfare Remastered quite often.

I also have a Raspberry Pi connected to my HDTV although I don't really play the games I have on it too often.

There is just too much on my one TV, so yes, cables are a mess. All on one HDMI port and a lot of SCART splitter-boxes. It does come at the price of less images quality on some consoles, and comes with some ghosting.
But as I am short of space for another tv and short of space of properly displaying the not-used consoles, this is it. Picture will come.

I have hooked up:
NES/ SNES (actually sharing the videocable)
N64
Gamecube w/ gameboy player
WiiU
Xbox360 Phat
PS3 (Phat 60 GB)
Dreamcast
CD-i (yes, a CD-i)

CTGP Revolution is brilliant and even allows you to play Mario Kart Wii online again.

Oh boy.

PS4 - HDMI
PS3 - HDMI
Xbox 360 - Component
Xbox - Component
Wii U - HDMI
Dreamcast - VGA
SNES - Composite
N64 - Composite
GameCube - Composite
Saturn - Composite
Genesis - Composite

I need to get a new AV switch, as I'm exceeding the limits of my receiver and TV as far as composite goes.

Sacrilege, BDR has an Xbox One in his house! :o

Just kidding, man. The more consoles the better. Do you have a copy of Rare Replay for it?
