    My first console was a PS2 with Die Hard Vendetta. It was a post-uni treat to myself. We had a binary household growing up, I was computers (Vic20, C64, Amiga, PC) and my younger brother was the console whore (NES, Master System, Mega Drive) and at uni my housemates provided a Playstation, SNES and N64 so I never needed to own one myself. Oh yeah, my grandparents had a Binatone pong system (with the paddle controllers) too.

    It probably isn't a console per-se but when I was pretty young I owned two single-game battery/mains operated jobbies that had controllers and screen in one. One was a Caveman thing where you had to get up a mountain spewing lava and rocks (Donkey Kong rip off) and the other was a yellow PacMan one.

    I had a Caveman one too but mine was just catching eggs/rocks and avoiding a pterodactyl and/or avoid getting eaten by a dinosaur, kinda fuzzy on the details. I too had the yellow PacMan console, that's probably a collectors item nowadays.
    Surely you can't be serious!

    This. (For obvious reasons ) But the first one I spent own pocket money on was either the original Gameboy with Tetris, or the Master System with built-in Alex Kidd in Miracle World, whichever came out first. I can't remember.

    Aargh! I'm late again to this 30 days lark.

    My first console was a Sega Mega Drive that came bundled with Italia '90. Awful, awful game. Luckily I also bought Super Hang On with it which was fantastic.

    Happy days...
