The longest working console you've ever owned

Forums - Gaming Discussion - The longest working console you've ever owned

My SNES is still going strong. Still play it a few times a year. Hell, it's probably my favorite console to this day. I even have a back up SNES Jr

Original Xbox.



My SNES is still booting. Those things are made from Nintendium. They'll outlive the pyramids. 

I bought it when I was 11. I'm 35. 24 years. 



I got my NES back in Christmas of 1988 and it still functions fine, so that's almost 28 years. I also have an Intellivision that was given to me as a hand-me-down back around '84-'85-ish. However, I'm not sure if it still works. Those old second-gen systems don't work with newer TVs, even many 90s-era CRTs, because they had those old RF switches with the fork connectors you had to screw down. I had a TV like this when I was a kid:



But I ended up giving it to a cousin after I got a new Toshiba back in Christmas '97 and my Intellivision didn't seem to want to work with it. Now I have an HDTV and I'm pretty damn sure the system isn't compatible with it.



When I saw this topic I got my old zx spectrum of of storage and fired her up...she still works. I bought her 34 years ago. Does that count?
