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?

Great site, lotsa good pics. Collectors page has some great pics, and a lot of typos. Should probably give it a once over.

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.

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.

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.

*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!

Many times I go to consolecolors.com and think, "This site could use an update.". I guess someone did back in April 2016. Much better images, user-friendly, correct information and nearly complete.

Hey man, stumbled upon your site while searching for N64 controller variants. Couldn't believe how well organized this was. Great informative page, definitely recommending people check it out :)

Really cool website, even has a blog/news section to see newer updates! Thought I'd let you know that France had a "Sims Gamecube Pak" - I don't own it so I can't provide photos, but there's one
listed on ebay.fr right now.
