In This Thread They Post Prototypes/Pre-Production Or Rare Consoles And Peripherals

Sega Neptune Our favorite consoles don't simply spring into existence as we know them today.  No, they began life as all kinds of crazy shapes and in all sorts of wacky colors.  Over at NeoGAF the forumites are posting up photos of prototypes of gaming consoles of all kinds, all the way from Nintendo's Advanced Video System to the Sega Neptune to Sony's Play Station (notice that's two words there) to the first publicly revealed Nintendo DS and beyond.  Of course, most of the photos are blurry low-resolution scans from magazines a decade or two old and are watermarked up the wazoo, but nobody ever said that studying history was easy.  And I still want to know what the hell that Nintendo Wii star controller was supposed to do.
