At one point I had 3-4 2600s, plus a 7800, CV adapter, etc.  I'm now down to a 7800 and 2600jr.

For me I have a 6 switch VCS, 2600 Jr, a Coleco 2600 adapter (with no Coleco), the 2600 adapter for the 5200 (with 5200), and the Intellivision 2600 module.  Also a Flashback 2 and two Flashback Portables.

 

So curious, if the Jaguar had a cartridge that could read other 2600 carts, would that count here?

Yep a 2600 adapter for the jag would count. The flashback 2 and portables don't count though as they don't accept 2600 cartridges.

2 4switch woodies
1 jr. Short rainbow
1 7800
1 colecovision w/converter
1 intellivision w/game changer
My jr makes all the rest of them look ugly on screen.
It may be a cheap turd, but it sure looks pretty on the screen. In all fairness, the 7800 is hooked to a plasma, so it may not get a fair shake.

I only have 3,   

 

1.(1977 or 78) Sunnyvale Six-Switch "Heavy 6er" (S/N 17784F) 

2.(May 6, 1980)  Taiwan  six-Switch Woody "Light Sixer) (Made by TRW Electronic components, in Taipei, Taiwan R.O.C for Atari Inc.) 

3. (1986) Black/Silver Atari 2600 Jr. "Short Rainbow"   ( Made in Hong Kong?) 

 

I also have a Atari Flashback 2, but I dunno if that would fall under the criteria.  

 

(Images in order of console)

The portable Atari accepts tiny cartridges:

They insert backwards like the full size cartridges.

 

I think the other Flashbacks count as dedicated Atari consoles.

If it doesnt accept 2600 carts it does not count in this poll. This is a poll for cart accepting consoles only. Dedicated machines without a cart port for vanillA 2600 carts do not count .

I have 3. 2600 4 switch. 2600 light 6er that I a/v modded (picture is amazing) and a 7800. Debating doing the a/v mod to the 7800 because I'm so impressed with it after doing it to my 6er, but the picture is surprisingly good out of the modulator so I've been keeping it in its original condition.

This poll will come in handy when my wife complains about how much Atari stuff I have in my modest collection. I'll just read her some of the stats to show her how good she has it.

Just a couple 4 switches for me.  But not sure if one works... so does that count as only 1?

 

Oh, and the Atari Flashback portable if that counts...

Flashback portable does not count as it cannot play Atari 2600 cartridges.

Off the top of my head:

 

1 Heavy Sixer

2 2600 Jr's

1 7800

1 Colecovision with expansion module

 

might be a 6th one in the form of a broken 2600 but can't remember if I bothered keeping it.

I have my childhood vader, two 4switch woodies, one jr and two 7800's that work. Not sure how many non functional systems I have, but I'll say 6 since I can confirm that those work.

When the hell is the retro77 coming out?

Nothing boxed unfortunately, but maybe I'll get one at some point. The hardware is more important to me than the packaging, but it would be a cool display piece.

Not counting the non-working ones in disrepair, I currently have:

 

1 - Atari Heavy Sixer

1 - Sears Heavy Sixer

1 - Atari 4 switch (chrome capped) Promo 2600

1 - Coleco 2600 Adapter (w/Colecovision)

1 - Sears Video Arcade II

2 - Atari 7800s

 

So 7 total.  Funny that 6-10 seems to be my sweet spot with collecting things (well, not carts).  But guitars, turntables, vintage receivers, vintage computers -- I've got about the same amount of each of those.  Slightly too many.

 

Also have the Flashback 2 with all the parts to add cartridge slot, but I never did it...
