got this place blocked on my school's network for spending so much time on it. 10/10, super informative!

Thank you everyone for the amazing support of the site. We will go to a new website called project "cv 2.0" it will have TONS of new features and even for collectors :) so stay tuned!

Hello. First off, I want to start by saying I love this site! I am a collector and have been looking for a site like this for a long time. I appreciate the effort that has went into making this site!
I was wondering if the template you used for this site can be downloaded as a pdf or something so that fellow collectors could make thier own lists for things that they are personally interested in.
Garog (Tuesday, 02 October 2018 17:06)
Incredible website, totally discovered this place by accident.
There's an extremely overwhelming level of documenting here, I spent roughly 3 hours looking through records of consoles.
I think you have (intended or not) made me into a wannabe console and videogame merch collector!

I'm wondering if the Game Boy Advance SP came in Indigo color? The Wikipedia (as trusted as they are) has a listing under Limited Edition Colors (Indigo (AUS, 2004)).

Hi, the Pokémon Red & Blue New 3DS's are missing and the red-black New 3DS XL that comes in the Mario Kart bundle didn't come out in Europe, only South Korea and Japan, Europe got the same bundle
but the 3DS on it is green-black, no red-black.

I am very impressed with this website! Going through all the archives of different console variants is very fascinating. It's very nice to see pictures of the rare systems you may read about on the
internet, or discover completely new ones! Even though it's a work in progress, the archive is very informative and dense with content. I can't wait to see it grow in the future!

Nice website, it´s interisting to see all the variations of consoles.
However i found an error with the PS4 Pro Gold Controller. It's possible to buy it in Europe, I bought one about a year ago in Slovakia.

Great site with some really good info. I just wish that there was a release date included for all of the console variations :)
Antiknuckles (Friday, 03 August 2018 23:22)
This is a great site! And I'm loving it, its the perfect starting point for a budding collector. I've got a good start now on my Gameboy and N64 collections and I'm using this site like a checklist.

Greetings from México! This site is amazing to get a little bit deeper in the history of this consoles, it realle makes you appreciate more the hobby of collecting. Kinda sad modern consoles versions
and packaging does not vary that much like it used to, it gave personality and unique feel to it. Keep on the good work!
Shadow (Sunday, 17 June 2018 02:47)
Love this site but needs to do a better job updating the recent editions on the home page, lot of new systems since I last checked more then that
Nick DeLieto (Wednesday, 23 May 2018 08:20)
Hey, just randomly stumbled upon this site and saw you had one of my Gamecube pictures on there. Made me feel super cool, appreciate it. It was the "Thanks ATI Gamecube" If you'd like better pictures
let me know, also underneath the jewel is an ArtX sticker with the Dolphin logo. ArtX being the company ATI aquired I think around 2002, maybe earlier. Also as far as I can tell only two of these
exist, one being indigo ( mine ) and another in the Jet Black. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
SkulShurtugalTCG (Friday, 18 May 2018 01:10)
This site is amazing! I'm working on research for every 3DS variant that exists and this site is incredibly helpful. As someone who currently has 9 different 3DS systems (across all models), it's
nice to be able to compare it with every other variant that exists--and even better, to know exactly how many variants do exist, and how many of the rarest ones there are. Great job on the catalog,
and I look forward to coming back again and again!
Tomyo (Thursday, 17 May 2018 04:27)
This has been extremely helpful in helping me figure out what systems I want to seek for the start of my handheld collection. I also just saw the article on the Izek and it was a huge help!

Superflicous collectability at the peak of presidence one might conjecture. : D
^^ some infos straddled inpromtly but just a minor gaff and in the least easily fixable assuming access by the webmaster to the proper php. files.
Digressions aside 99% accurate and definitely will be bookmarked for a go @ a later time.

Je site via de gamekings items gevonden, vette collectie! Kben zelf geen verzamelaar, maar heb wellicht een gamecube die niet veel mensen hebben. Een gemodde paarse (met led licht aan de zijkant),
waar behalve de originele kleine discs ook normaal formaat cd's in passen. Verzamel je zelf ook randapparatuur zoals de copybox van de snes?

Very helpful in seeing what is available to collect for each system. Are the LodgeNet controllers not included because they were technically made by Hori?
Arkz (Saturday, 24 February 2018 23:13)
Great site, lotsa good pics. Collectors page has some great pics, and a lot of typos. Should probably give it a once over.
Soohable (Monday, 12 February 2018 00:26)
I like your website and it has valuable information. However, I am very confused with the pictures provided for each console. I would recommend that every console should have have regional sections
(Japan, America, Europe, Australia) and provide all packaging variations for each specific region.
Ron (Wednesday, 07 February 2018 04:21)
I'm super into collecting consoles and finally there is this handy reference available from you guys!! Amazing to find out about some rarities and gems. this whole website is a gem tbh
Aldebaran (Sunday, 28 January 2018 19:41)
In wii controller variations: nintendo did never release a pink nunchuck, a Classic Controller Black or a Classic Controller Red (just 'pro' versions of those 2). There are not Evidences of that.
(sorry for the awkard english)

This site is great guys. I'm using it as a reference for the site I am working on right now. Keep up the good work guys. One thing though. It would be great if you'd do different console box art
variations. I.E. NES Had a lot more variations based on what was packaged with it per store and what not. You guys should include those too.

Hey guys, this website is dope! Very keen for a Wonderswan section!!

*Wall of text warning*
In the Sega Dreamcast consoles section, there's an entry currently titled "Sega Dreamcast: Sakura Taisen Specialty Store" (would be nice to have anchor tags for your site if feasible).
I highly believe this to be a display unit for the "Taisho Romando" store, the official Sakura Taisen goods shop in Japan. Whether or not the unit was offered for sale, and how many were made, I
cannot say but at the very least it was created for the store.
More info on the shop:
http://hg101.kontek.net/sakurataisen/sakurataisen7.htm (last paragraph of the Legacy section)
What these articles miss is that there was a second shop opened in Shinsaibashi. The text on the Dreamcast says that it was to commemorate the grand opening of the Shinsaibashi shop on Dec 11,
The Taisho Romando logo on the Dreamcast (and controller) can be matched with the logo on the shop's official website:
Because of the time period in which the Sakura Taisen series takes place, the text in the logo is actually written right-to-left (堂漫浪正太) despite being written horizontally, to give a historic vibe to
The topmost line of text on the Dreamcast is the date followed by Taisho Romando written left-to-right (1999.12.11 太正浪漫堂).
The second line says "Shinsaibashi Store Grand Opening Commemoration" (心斎橋店 開店記念).
As proof that a second shop existed at all, here's a page from official website wherein the third paragraph states that the Shinsaibashi shop reached its third anniversary on December 2002 (matching
up with the Dec 1999 date on the Dreamcast):
Currently your Quick Facts section for this console says:
- Console released in Japan
- Pink colored console with the Sakura Taisen text on top.
- 1 known (not known how many are made)
- currently investigating the source
- Unit is currently displayed in a store in japan.
- Console released in Japan
- Pink colored console with the Taisho Romando logo on top.
- 1 known (not known how many are made)
- Created to commemorate the grand opening of the Shinsaibashi branch of the Sakura Taisen goods store, Taisho Romando.
- Unit was displayed in store.

Loving the hell out of this site, loving your dedication and devotion!
However, I too have to say that the Sony section is lacking. For it to be perfect, you'd have to list all the different SCPH-revisions. The SCPH-90000 line of production, the final version of the
slim PS2, noticably looks different from all the other slim PS2 revisions.

Thanks Tim! We have fixed it =)

One note: on page https://www.consolevariations.com/nintendo/snes/snes-controller-variations/ the first picture is not a Super Famicom controller, but rather a European SNES controller.

This site helped me prove to someone that the midnight blue Toys R Us Japanese exclusive Game Boy Advance is a real thing and has a transparent purple-ish colour (yes he didn't believe me before...).

Hey guys! I can't help but notice some things that are lacking in some fields in the Sony section, but otherwise, this site is amazing!
