Your Gaming Setup

Postby roynluc » 05 Mar 2012, 11:00

I have a funny feeling that this has been done before, but hey, what the hell.

Through being nosey, etc. I would like to see pics of your gaming areas. What equipment you have and see how people generally play their games.

The living room is my general area for playing my games, as her indoors tends to sit up in the bedroom on her laptop and watch her stuff on the TV upstairs, which also has my original Xbox 360 connected to it for when we spend time together, but doing our own thing.

Now for the pics...

Living room. LG 42lw450u 3D TV, Sky+HD, Xbox 360 250GB Elite, PS3 40GB fat, Nintendo Wii, Kenwood KRF-V5050D 5.1 surround system.

Image

The view I generally have from my desk...

Image

The bedroom. Toshiba 32" 1080P TV, Original Sky Plus box, Philips upscaling Div-x dvd player and original launch Xbox 360.

Image

Well, that's mine, but I am hoping to put all the equipment in the space that has been vacated by the gas fire. I will do this as my next project, as I also have to get the chimney capped before putting panels in to close off the hole, to stop rain and debris dripping down on the systems.

Kids are just less hairier nowadays, and therefore less manly.

Having moved again 10months ago and sharing a house with a mate I've not bothered Unboxing my stuff so all I've got set up is my PS3 and 42" LG and my PX5's. When I move again soon I'll have everything back to how it should be. Plus I'm currently gaming in my bedroom as it's s**t sharing a living room with a house mate.

Roy doesn't all them wires bug you? It's annoying me seeing them in the pictures :lol: I can't stand seeing any wires even at my missus's house. When I saw hers I had to reroute them for her so I couldn't see them! Trunking is my best friend :)

Yep, the wires do bug me, but they aren't a permanent feature. As soon as the void where the gas fire used to sit is all sealed off from the elements that come down the chimney, I will be housing it all in there. All wires will be pretty much hidden, well, as much as can be done.

As for the bedroom, I tidied those wires up with a few cable ties, but I will get some trunking as soon as I can, just to hide them away.

My house is an old miners cottage, so space is quite limiting. It's taken me 15 and a half years to get it to the state it is now, it will probably be another 15 before it's finished to the state I want it... :lol:

What a mess fest! :wink:

I couldn't cope with that at all, my set-up has a very minimal/stealth look. I'll stick a picture up later for what it's worth, I think it's interesting to see what view our fellow CVGers see when they're gaming.

Now I don't know whether you're talking about the wires or my hairy legs. Damn you, Niknak!!

In the above pic, the white thing is a "CD Player" in case any youngsters are confused :lol:. Infront of it is my iPhone charging dock and my 3DS charging dock,


And finally along with my 3D glasses and 3DS, my current total PS3 and 3DS game collection.

Seems everybody takes this gaming lark much more seriously than me then.

And here's a Dreamcast and games hidden in some drawers.

Image

And my 3DS and games hidden in a drawer.

Image

And my PS3 games, yep you guessed.....

That's far too neat you two! Do you live in a hotels? Stop buying furniture at Ikea, go to some second hand/junk shops!

We moved into such a tiny flat, almost everything in my lounge is on some built in shelves in one corner of the lounge - 25" HDTV, old school hi-fi amp, record player, all my DVDs (which I never watch), games, consoles (although the Wii's in a drawer at the moment, but it's small enough to sit behind the TV), a few records and dozens of my girlfriend's books and assorted personal effects. I'd say it's (reasonably) organised chaos, but all the wires are tucked away nicely, although you wouldn't see them anyway with all the s**t on the shelves.

My desktop is in another corner under a small desk with a 22" monitor, printer etc. The whole place is cluttered and needs to be cleaned tidied every f**king day because it just builds up instantly, and I'm a bit s**t at putting stuff away.

When we lived in the old place, our lounge was huge, so I had all my record boxes laid out side by side along on wall, with all music/TV/gaming stuff laid out across it. My gf had her own room as a studio, so most of her stuff was in there or on a bookcase in lounge.

Ahhhh the good old days, although I don't miss paying £350 a week in rent and bills.

My TV is an LG 42LW5700 3D, PS3 console, originally an 80GB, I've upgraded it to a 500GB HDD, 5.1 surround sound speakers, PSOne, PS2, router and VoIP units. Behind the TV there's a shelf with movies and PSOne games.

Image

This is my movie, CD, and gaming collection. And a red PSP, red 3DS and PS3 mic.
