Which systems can you spot in this drawing?

I stumbled upon the illustration below (and here), produced by artist Aaron Kraten, while perusing Flickr yesterday afternoon.

It features a Famicom (stacked on top of a Famicom Disk System, no less), an NES-101 (or NES 2, if that's the verbiage you prefer) and a TurboDuo (or is it a PC Engine Duo?), so of course I had to share it here.

I also see a Dreamcast, an NES, an Xbox 360 and a Wii in the drawing above. Can you spot any others?

For another example of Kraten's abilities, check out "My kind of art."

Is that non-specific action figure on the shelf?

Ha! You know, Zack, I think it may be :)

Sweet. This is great, aside from the ugly-ass NES 2. The drawing is great! The system? Not.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Ha! I've never liked the design of the NES 2 either, Justin. I remember seeing it for the first time shortly after it was released and thinking to myself, "Ew!"

The design of the SNES Jr. (or whatever it was called) was a bit better, but still not as interesting/nice as the original, IMO.

BTW, someone on Twitter suggested a Genesis is to the right of the regular/original NES. I think I have to agree!

Didn't they rework the controllers for the SNES redesign? Or was that the NES redesign that ended up with these gross-looking rounded controllers?

Bryan Ochalla said...

Justin: You're thinking of the controllers that came with the NES 2. They looked kind of like bones, or barbells. Ugh!

As far as I can remember, the controllers packed with the SNES Jr. were just like the ones packed with the regular SNES. Thankfully.
