Collector's Corner: Show us your collection photo
Collector's Corner: Show us your collection
by Bill Platt

[The latest Collector's Corner is all about you, we want to see your collections! We want to show them off to the rest of the Destructoid Community. Keep reading below to see how you can participate!]

I was having a discussion with a friend the other day, who also happens to be a collector, regarding the way he displays the games he's picked up over the years. You see, my buddy Brian is a huge nut for anything Atari, whether it is games, consoles, posters, manuals, pins, buttons, stickers -- anything. You name it, he collects it, and he has tons of stuff to show off.

His collection, while massive, is sort of hidden, such that the majority of his games and swag are not on display. He has a room dedicated to gaming, and on the back wall are two six-foot-tall shelves, each is just about four feet wide. On these shelves are various games (mostly Atari), some loose, and some in boxes. There are a couple of Atari-themed lunch boxes, and other miscellaneous items. The windows are adorned with vintage Pac-Man curtains. The walls are painted to resemble a level from the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES.

Basically, he goes all out.

Collector's Corner: Should you sell your current console? photo
Collector's Corner: Should you sell your current console?
by Chris Carter

[Welcome to Collector's Corner -- a community-centric series headlined by Destructoid's Chris Carter and Bill Platt. We'll not only be looking at various topics within the collecting scene, but we'll also share our own experiences, and occasionally highlight community collections too! -- Chris & Bill]

With every "next" generation of consoles comes an important decision -- what are you going to do with your old systems? While the PS4 and Xbox One loom over our heads this month, most of us can't help but give our PS3s and Xbox 360s second glances, wondering if we should sell them off to help pay for an upgrade.

But in our experience, it only ends in regret. If you're thinking of selling off something you've created so many memories with, stop and think for a bit. Because in the end, you can wait.

GameStop to sell Xenoblade, Metroid Prime Trilogy for $40

Just a couple months ago, GameStop was selling copies of Xenoblade for upwards of $90. The retailer has exclusive rights to the title, you'll remember. This monopoly and price hike raised a number of issues, especially when i...

Pokemon X & Y 3DS XLs look great in person

When I was playing Pokemon X and Y earlier this week, I also got to check out the X and Y themed 3DS XLs we previously reported on. Smudged them up real nice with my greasy fingerprints. While I like the more muted, but still...
