Assuming you open them.

If you don't open them, well, then that's a problem in itself.

There's no point in keeping a greatest hits game sealed (at least from this generation) none of them hold any value !

hey dvd binders are good for transporting it was either that or have no games to play while at school instead of doing homework(i admit this was a poor decision in hindsight should study far more often than i do)

Yeah, I followed his link on a different thread.

I use a binder for my ps1 and dreamcast stuff due to lack of space. The cases are all boxed away in a closet. I bring shame upon us all :'(

I did the same for years. Had 4 large rubbermaids in the closet. Then I got tired of them eating space... a bunch of plastic boxes in another plastic box packed away in a drywall box with a door on it.

I have a friend that has the boxes to everything in his house stored in the attic. His attic is almost 100% empty boxes :D

A little hard to see because of our bad lighting, but here's the new shelving unit all put together:

Where did you get this shelf? I need one like this for my game collectables... that's my weakness.

That's the Atlantic 1080 Oskar shelf which can be found in many places. Not sure exactly where he got it from, but places such as Best Buy, Target, and other retailers should carry them pretty regularly.

Thanks a bunch... I searched and they're all over Amazon as well.

I'll be searching for the same just a little deeper. Damn Gears 3 and Halo Reach statues are bulky.

On another note:
Might as well join the collection topic. I know it isn't on par with what this thread is about but...

Here's my gaming area until my entertainment center is done (needs spackle and paint still).

My evil disc binder and laptop opened to my steam library! Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic... will update when I have access to a digital camera.

Well my collection is definitely not what it was but I still have a good bit of stuff. I for some reason got into collecting Blu-Rays and sold of some of my better games to fund that.

LG 42" 1080p TV/Samsung 7.1 Surround/PS3 Super Slim/Xbox 360 S/Sony BDP-S570/Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD Player

Also yes that is my Sega Saturn sitting out.

Blu-Ray Shelve. I also have my NES games on the bottom as well as my boxes that I still have for some of my Genesis games.

I unfortunately don't have any good storage space for my cartridge games so for now they sit in these drawers in one of my endtables.

Most of my retro stuff has come from yard sales and these are the many consoles I still have lying around. Hope to add to it this summer.

Finally whats a collection without a ridiculous amount of controllers. I have a lot of Sega Genesis controllers and doubt I will run out anytime soon.

Hurrah for collection pics! Nice set up you got there too. Everything just seems to have a very rustic feeling to it partly because of how the room looks.

Haha I figured I'd take over my parents basement while I went to college till I move out since they were getting sick of me being loud all night. Gotta love classic wood paneling. Looking at these pics also reminds me that I need to remember to dust.....

Like Squarehard said, you can get them just about everywhere. I got mine from Walmart for $156. But you'll definitely want something different for collectibles. I'm pretty sure those two statues wouldn't fit properly. I didn't bother to test with my Gears 3 statue because I knew I wouldn't have room for anything besides games anyway.

Thanks!

It's actually an Intec PS2 flip screen from way back when. I found it while cleaning my studio a couple of days ago (it must have been sitting in this shoe box for 10+ years) and literally dropped what I was doing and cranked this thing out. I dunno why, was just so amped! LOL! Been wanting to make something like this for a while, but didn't really wanna invest in parts. Had no excuse anymore ;)

Thanks man! Now I need to make my nest-to-the-TV console shelves that I've got on my list of to-dos. The wife won't like it on the coffee table for too long :P

So easy. Totally plug-n-play. I literally used the SNES composite cable to hook up the audio (and hard-wired S-vid in). It's just lopped up and zip-tied it down inside. I took some pics while making it. I posted a few in my mod thread and I'll post the rest soon.
